I Live In The Desert To Hide From Cthulhu
Kevin

Geeks and Geekettes, welcome to the Blog of Kev. That would have been a much cooler name back in 1998, is all I'm saying. Little gifs floatin' around, a midi theme of Eye of the Tiger. . . kids will never know what horrors we have survived. We enjoyed a cool summer breeze last night, coming hot on the heels of two birthdays happening just before the quiz. This led to a lot of folks coming through to check out Geeks Who Drink, even if they didn't play all the way through. Case in point, the team Just The Tip stopped by for the first four rounds, and then disappeared. After they left, one of the players

I'll Call it MacCleaver
Mark

Let's talk about TV show crossover episodes. The Simpsons did quite a few of them. X-Files, 24, and Family Guy episodes, just to name a few. Ray Barone from Everybody Loves Raymond showed up on King of Queens a few times. What about reality TV though? There's the Real World/Road Rules Challenge (which I watched all the time). So, I thought of a fun reality/action drama crossover. Chopped meets MacGyver. Richard Dean Anderson would obviously be one of the judges on Chopped, but it wouldn't be Chopped in a kitchen. It would be engineers in a lab. So the contestants are given a "picnic basket" with three mystery items, plus a wild card item. If you've ever seen

Shiny and Chromatic!
TanookiSuitandTie

What are these?! These shiny, new answer packets, wha-? What are they? With their card stock covers, their perforated pages, COLORS, fun ads and GWD info throughout, they are freaking beautiful! I couldn't help myself when I saw we got the shipment of the new answer packets, I immediately swapped them out for my oldie, moldy B&W packets. I mean, I'll still use the B&W packets for occassions like, oh you know, the Bob's Burgers themed quiz coming up this Thursday! If I run low on packets or if my "packets never arrived" like what happened at the last theme quiz (Nintendo) that I hosted, I'll have a swath of regular, degular answer packets ready to go.

Never get involved in a land war in Asia
St. Jimmy

The band Asia was not that bad. Were they the best prog rock band? No, that title belongs to Pink Floyd. But they did tamper down some of the excesses of their fellow brethren including the other bands that most of the members came from. Most of the songs hover around the 4 to 5 minute mark and they have hooks. Heat of the moment is a catchy song. When prog rock bands chose virtuosity over making a good rock song, it gets pretty terrible. Yeah, Asia made slickly produced 80s music but with members from Yes and Emerson Lake and Palmer, it could have been way worse. And hey, Carl Palmer actually played real drums instead of electric drums. I hate when bands use electric drums (looking at you

Suddenly This Summer...
Pope Pepe

The first time I ever tried illegal drugs, I had no idea what I was doing. That seems like a common thing, but I sincerely did not know that I was taking anything. Let’s go back to the start of this all, and maybe I can clear somethings up for you, valued reader of this blog. And no, that’s not a typo, I know there’s only one of you. I was of the D.A.R.E. generation. For those of you who don’t know, it stood for “Drug Abuse Resistance Education.” We got the totally awesome and never parodied t-shirts sent to our school! We got bumper stickers! What we didn’t get was the actual education part of the acronym. Not a single person, educator,

Born on a dark and stormy night, Joe came into this world asking questions. That sort of belligerent attitude was just the thing, and he eased into the role of Quizmaster. Hailing originally from the great state of Connecticut, Joe comes to quizzing by way of Washington, D.C. and New York City.

After several failed attempts to break into the acting world, Joe decided that producing was his bag. He produced several small venue concerts, comedy shows and benefits. He also produced the two full length musicals Lunch (part of the New York Musical theatre Festival) and Titus X, a blood soaked, punk rock, balls out adaptation of Titus Andronicus.  Joe spent years in the non profit world as well, working for various groups until he decided to strike out on his own.

Striking out brought him back to Connecticut where he ran his own business and free-lanced in the non-profit development field. He comes to Geeks Who Drink thanks to his love of all things geek (Star Trek 4evah!) and drinking. He can be found, pipe in hand, downing a glass of Famous Grouse scotch most nights...after he's put his son to bed. Joe currently resides in the central realms of Connecticut with his two cats and his destiny.

Thanks to everyone for their support and remember; everyone's a winner...unless you lose.

Suddenly... Technical Difficulties
Kyle King

Hello humans and those of you who think we care about your political opinions on social media. We don't. Shut up. So last night everything was going fantastic. We were having fun, yall were posting decent scores, and we were WAY ahead of schedule. Then, out of nowhere, my laptop just DIED. Nothing. So then I had to get SEXY MARCO (here's his instagram https://www.instagram.com/sexymarco69) to re score the previous rounds by hand. It was a mess. I apologize to you guys. You know that I like to run a smooth, fun show. Next week will be better. I promise. We had 14 teams show up last night, even my Sunday night regulars The

Remember, the Safe Word is "Biodome"
Lord of Pirates

What up punks? Hope you had a wonderful time between quizzes but we need to get back into this thing. Just want to remind everybody this Thursday at 8pm there will be a "Bob's Burgers" theme quiz hosted by yours truly at the Mason Jar in Eagan. Eat a burger and try to win some money you guys. Onto last night's recap. In Round One we asked probing questions about Asia the continent not Asia the prog-rock band. Most of our teams knew that Mecca is housed in Saudi Arabia and that Sri Lanka, Cambodia, and Thailand are Buddist. Where a couple teams floundered was naming the Macedonian king who dubbed himself "King of Asia" (Alexander the Great) or a feature of pants, what was the Urdu word

After All The Walking I've Done Tonight Hosting, I Could've Hatched a 5.0km Egg!
Cowabunga Kiefer

'Twas and amazing Tuesday for a quiz, and I couldn't have been more honored subbing in at this venue. Due to a low battery issue with the wireless mic, we were delayed a few minutes but we were able to catch up by the end. We had some fun tonight and learned some cool and really important stuff. Here's how it went down: R1: Eight Questions on Asia. Buddhism is the most-practiced religion down near Thailand, "King of Asia" was the self-applied title for Alexander the Great, and Asia only takes up 30% of the earth's land mass.  R2: Another classic episode of cover songs that were gender bent. Pretty good round overall, but no perfect scores. Addicted to Love by Robert

Happy Tuesday! Today was a fun day at Bethany Public House. They had a wine stock-up sale with lots to taste, so naturally, I had to try a few before I started the quiz tonight. Super fun. Needless to say, it resulted in me struggling my way through the quiz. A combination of wine and sleepiness resulted in me saying “it’s weirded strangely”, which doesn’t make any sense. Additionally, I stumbled on several other combinations of words that normal people can say correctly at any time without thinking about it. I need to give credit where credit’s due – tonight, there were some SUPER creative and hilarious team names and answers. Here are a

Kids Win All The Beer
Kasey

Tonight we had a great turn out of lots and lots of children...most of whom had bedtimes earlier than when the quiz ended. But our final two children, joined by a team of 3 adults, were from Don't Take Our Parking Space, and the 11 year old in that group was the one who brought home the most beers for her team (which, no worries, she gave all her free beers to her parents and they bought her a root beer instead).    Their primary competition was veteran team Stanley (previously known as KO, Charlie and other names). Ultimately the 11 year old was too smart for Stanley, and Don't Park In My Spot was our victor for the evening.    All

Outlook Not So Good, Miss Cleo. Outlook Not So Good...
WhitneyWhitworth

My beautiful lil’ quizlettes. Let’s just take a moment of silence to peer in to the void and say our goodbyes to Miss Cleo- who put the emphasis on friends when she launched the “Psychic Friends Network,” and paid little mind to the psychic part. And who better to pay tribute than our quizzers, who, no surprise, saw her death coming before she did and named themselves Miss Cleo Never Saw It Coming. Are we a morbid group? Sure, but as Mitch Swelt can tell you, we are also really smart. I mean, the first three rounds of our quiz pretty much left everyone neck and neck, with almost a tied game between our top five out of eight teams.

Hey Ho, Quiz-monkeys! Oh boy, it was so nice to see all of your happy faces down at MOE’S BBQ tonight. When I came in the joint was empty. Just tumbleweeds blowing around the bar like a crazy ghost-town in a spaghetti western.

The next time I looked up, the place was packed and we were all ready to get our quiz on.

We absolutely did NOT talk about our feelings.
Miss LaLa

I don’t know why we would. Who talks about feelings anymore? Pshhhh. *Eyeroll* Feelings. Who needs em?   We learned tonight that I have been quizzing in Citrus Heights for 9 months! So we’ve decided that I have officially given birth to a bouncing baby pub quiz. We’re not going to apply gender labels to it since it’s too young to self identify and we’re gonna respect that! I’d say it weighs somewhere between 16 oz and 750ml. I’m obviously the mother and the father is... let’s say. I don’t know… it’s either Adam Levine or Channing Tatum.
