Round Seven was a nipple-twister!
Roybot

There was a lot to wrap our heads around tonight with the round 7 questions asking a lot of me and the teams. I got some blank answer sheets and some with various curses unrelated to the quiz at all. Fortunately, I got some answer sheets back with at least some answers right. Meaning, I hadn’t entirely mush-mouthed the instructions! Round one was a breeze, though! I had three teams circle their Joker for round one. This is probably what lured the teams into a false sense of security for when round 7 came for their tuchas’. Fractured But Whole ruled the roost the whole night. Reminds me of when Napoleon Dynamite’s Gran broke her coccyx on her ATV.

Do Not Underestimate THE COMPETITION
Mitchicus Mathematicus

That was one crazy awesome quiz we had at Schrier's. We had a wayback trip to Bayside High, learned more about food poisoning than any of us had ever wanted, and the end results were so crazy they could make a Lifetime mini-series about it. It would probably star Dean Cain. My name is Mitchicus Mathematics, and I am your quizmaster. Not only was that the title of round 4, where we had the meeting agendas of various groups like the Spice Girls and the Manson family, but I needed to make a point. When not being your quizmaster, I try to play quiz as much as I can. I have my strengths and weaknesses. I would have aced tonight's Round 2 all by my lonesome, but shove a round about movie

Howdy, all. Mitch here. I'm an Arizona-grown U of A alum with a job teaching students that Math doesn't have to suck. I've been quizzing with friends for three years and have been loving it ever since. Now as a QM, I just need to work on the whole talking and blogging thing. 

I am a huge retro gamer. I should have won the Star Fox Weekend leather jacket as a kid, and I did win a Nintendo Wii playing Guitar Hero. I'm sadly lacking in knowledge of all the "cool" games kids play these days, but I'm still down with the classics. I'm also a fan of bad movies and mozzarella cheesesticks. 

Other life accomplishments include being published in "Highlights" magazine, going on Wheel of Fortune, meeting Walter Jones the power ranger, beating Super Metroid in 80 minutes with 100% completion, and never going to Senior Prom.

What a crazy mix of questions tonight and all of the teams playing were either up in arms, confused, or downright excited. A roller coaster of emotions tonight and some great puppies in the house for good luck! I was excited to see some new faces and some familiar faces. We can't not have a good time with fun people and puppies right?I had a personal mixed week as I was laid out with a horrible stomach ache for a majority of the weekend and I've been working to catch up on this thing called life ever since, but I persevered and made sure that I was ready for whatever came my way tonight! Thanks to those around me that helped me get my shit together this week. Plus, thanks to all

You know that scene in Dumbo where he gets rocked by his mom makes you cry too! Other things I like include fun people, fun music, fun movies, and staying away from non-fun things like getting punched in the face.

Fat Tuesday is Always Better with a Quiz!
Stephanie

Good evening and happy quiztastic Fat Tuesday! It was a packed house at Luke's tonight (thanks Taste of the Triangle!), so it was a super fun quiz environment. My friends from the Booze Fighter's MC were in the house, so you know we were in for a fun night!! So without further ado, heeeeere we go! Our backwards movie plots were a ton of fun, but apparently entirely too simple for my brainiacs! Every team got a perfect score that round!! OMG THAT ALMOST NEVER HAPPENS!! I usually save my fun profanities for later in the quiz, but this one was well deserved! Fan-fuckin-tabulous job teams!! Off to a great start!! Our first audio round was a breeze, and the Saved by the Bell vs

City Of Brotherly Love? B.S.
Gallifreak

Robots are awesome. If you try to argue this with me you will always lose and you will never change my mind. Some of my favourite characters in film or books or tv are robots or androids. I grew up loving R2-D2, Muffit from Battlestar Galactica and Twiki from Buck Rogers. Yes, I'm old. Deal with it. Oh and of course Bubo the robot owl from Clash of the Titans.. As I got older I discovered what will always be one of my favorite series ever: The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. The existential angst of Marvin always made me smile. Ivan Rickman's voice coming out of Marvin is the only redeeming thing from that travesty of a film that came out a few years ago. If you think I'm wrong

Fat Tuesday
OwenBallard

For those about to quiz, we salute you. You were the few who decided to show up to Scotty’s Pub on Fat Tuesday when everyone else was out getting drunk at Kemah or Galveston or maybe even New Orleans. While the bar might have been a little less occupied than normal due to the Mardi Gras festivities, we had some new facesbe even at quiz which made up for the lack of the usual teams like #TEAM DANGERZONE and the lone wolf with the witty, topical team names who always plays by himself (and almost always wins). All things considered, this was probably the lowest scoring quiz since I started hosting back in 2013. I would like to attribute the low scores to the new faces who were unfamiliar

I was born in Clear Lake, and later graduated from Deer Park Schools. After high school, I graduated from the University Of Texas in Austin with a degree in Economics. After messing around in Austin till 2011, I decided to return to Houston where I continued to mess around till this day.

I like to consider myself a trivia enthusist/expert, especially with regards to music, Star Wars and the Simpsons (the latter two of the three I know more about than I do about anything). 

Come down to The Den Campus Pub on Wednesday at 7:30 for marvelous prizes, gift cards, and your chance to win some free drinks.

Definitely Not A Snow Day
Killer B

A lot has changed since last Tuesday's quiz at Blake Street was snowed out. First, and most importantly, I got tickets to see Hamilton in New York in November! Also, the Broncos won the Super Bowl. As much as I love football and the Broncos would there even be an NFL without our first Secretary of the Treasury? Think about it.   It was great to be back tonight to oversee the quiz, get a couple drinks and get out of the house. Lots of Broncos jerseys left over from the parade and Michigan State fans who sat through overtime to see a tough loss. Sorry for the slightly late start to the quiz but in sports fans vs. quizzers sports fans seem to be angrier and more violent

I'm Blake Ritchen and I became a Quiz Master for the power. Nowhere else in my life can I tell people not to fuck with me so calmly or without chance of altercation. As a substitute teacher I'm supposed to stay away from words like that, though from the number of elementary students who've told me I look like the guy from The Hangover I'm going to assume they've heard that and worse. The power is intoxicating. I get to choose what music you listen to, what prize to award for the email bonus question (from the prizes given to me to award), and in which inflection I will read each question. I also get to drink for free, meet new people, tell jokes, yada, yada, I'm boring myself.
I have spent more and and more time recently with my new best friend, Netflix. If you dropped your Netflix plan over their failed summer business plans you're nuts. Why don't you just move to western Pakistan because the IRS was a week late on your tax return? Seriously, it's amazing and has made me much happier than any real person in my life ever could. I've prepared for the zombie apocalypse with The Walking Dead, a life in menial jobs with The Office and Party Down, and there's a movie where nun's get totally naked. Get a friend Netflix for the holidays or a birthday, or just give them your password so you don't have to spend another eight dollars a month.
I teach, I quiz, I master, I bait fish hooks when I visit my grandfather in Minnesota, I read but have recently just been waiting for the movie to come out, and I've lived in Denver my whole life. I also work at a sports bar and basically have the job of changing channels for people, an easy enough job most days but it has made the target of many a crazed sports fan who is unwilling to turn his head at all to watch his game. Still, I love it, and like I said at the start, I like having the power.

My Quizmaster style can best be described as a mix between an announcer at an NBA basketball game and Brad Neely's Dear Reader: Wizarding People.  Jordan's quizzlings has the propensity for random bouts of karaoke during shitty 90's songs e.g. Ashlee Simpson, and Smashmouth.  I am notorious for leading aforementioned sing alongs.

Following Kentucky Basketball is my full time job, The Avett Brothers are constantly playing in my head, and Swedish Fish, Fried Okra, and Chocolate Milk are the true keys to my heart.

I also have an inexplicable habit of breaking out in dance every time old school BlackEyedPeas songs come on.

Cleats East is Back!
DJ ROB ROB

It's so good being back to quiz at Cleats Bar and Grill EAST after a brief snow-induced hiatus. Now that about half of the snow in town has melted (or barely any, if you're looking at my damn neighborhood), we were able to have a great night of quiz on the east side of town. In Round 1, you had to tell me which movie I was describing backwards. The Martian would have been a super depressing story if a bunch of astronauts abandoned Mark Watney on Mars. Every team surprisingly got perfect scores, so go you. Round 3 was an either/or round involving Shakespeare and Saved by the Bell. While that's an odd venn diagram to picture,

Right out of the blocks with over 100 people and 28 teams for the inaugural Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz at the 49th State Brewing Company in Anchorage, way to support a new local business and a new Pub Quiz!!! Even with a late start (thanks for all the extra tables and chair) we managed to complete the first Pub Quiz with plenty of excitement and drama. In the end California is a Great Place for Slow White Bronco Chases squeaked out a three point win over Rut Beer Floats, with a dance off for third won by The Planeteers over Eskiknows.

Whoa, Nelly! There were a lot of teams tonight, y’all! I’m so happy! I saw a lot of new faces and that was great! Welcome! Tonight’s Quiz was a tough one, but I think it’s fun to be challenged sometimes. It brings us closer together, as a Quiz community, and as teammates. #saptime   One of my favorite parts of having many, many teams in a night is that there are so many excellent team names. Here were my favorites of the evening: What Is Your Spaghetti Policy? Probably the most important question that we could ask a potential President of the United States of America.

You Had Me at Spiderman 
Sally

Someone asked me why “Zack’s War” wasn’t “Henry IV” and to them I said “I cannot help you because I have only seen the movie version of Henry V, which is not the same as Henry IV, and that was because a young Christian Bale plays the role of ‘Boy’ so I don’t really know specifics of the play and also it is entirely possible that I'm wrong on all counts…”* So I guess there were a lot of similarities between Saved By The Bell and Shakespeare, most notably a real fear of women and men dressing and acting similar in order to trick the opposite sex…oof. In Round 1, we spoiled

Pub Quiz Kickoff at The Social
Shannon

Tonight's kickoff of the first Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz ever held at The Social was a beauty, and I am excited to see this ball getting rolling. Five adventurous teams embarked upon the journey with me, and got the hang of things straightaway. I'm not sure the All Starz knew that they'd be playing a quiz when they came in, and at first it looked as though they'd be a party of one. Pretty quickly, though, the one hesitant player who agreed to give it a shot was joined by several friends, and by two questions into the audio round, she was dancing and hooting in amusement as I played the clips. This team surely gets the award for Most Enthusiastic, even if their

Wherefore Art Thou, Mr. Belding?
Kersimus

Temps dropping to single digits. New Super Bowl Champions, that unfortunately aren't the Pats this year. And we're drinking to get the image of the puppy monkey baby out of our heads.  Yup, must be February. And tonight we had 6 teams battling it out in our quiz. Our first round tonight was chock full of spoilers, as teams had to identify a movie by its plot. Not so hard right? How about they had to do it after I described the plot if you were watching it Merlin Style? Perfect scores for all our teams who know their sappy movies backwards and forwards.Round three was all about two Preppies from Verona. I would

Oh the weather outside is frightful.  Lots of other things are frightful.  Like snakes.  Snakes are also frightful.  And bears.  Everything is terrifying.  Beware.   Cleveland is finally getting the weather we deserve, and holy shit guys, the roads were pretty terrible.  So while we had a fairly light turnout, the teams that did come of hardcore as hell.  I salute you crazy bastards.     And really, it was a pretty fun night.  We named movies based on their plots running in reverse, and asked

So Many Newbies
Alex Schmidt

So tonight it seems there was a different tone in the air. I know you are never supposed to talk about politics but tonight was not that night. Bernie Sanders won NH! I was so excited. But then the news came. Donald Trump also won. I still can not wrap my head around how this country is electing a reality TV star to be our representative but at the same time he is helping to implode the GOP. OK no more. Another new feeling tonight. Only one returning team so we had all newbies.   It was interesting to have all newbies when we had a tough quiz to pop their cherry. Backwards plot lines, Saved by the Bell episodes, and the hardest audio round in history. Even the bonus
