The Furthest North-est with the Most-est
Mandie

We had a spectacular turnout for our VERY first Northern Most Geeks Who Drink Quiz in Fairbanks, AK. Ending up with a total of ELEVEN teams, we rocked the Banks with geeky knowledge!  Our champion of the evening Trash Mountain, celebrated not only a win but a birthday, and threw the best farewell party anyone could ask for. Here are the highlights: Round 1 - Trash Mountain leads with an answer that adds the note "Kyle said so!" (and he was right!)Round 3 - The round that most teamed jokered.Round 4 - EVERYONE has seen or heard of Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon - almost no one but F My H knew that Jet Li wasn't

A Little Competition Never Hurt Anyone
Ellie

With about 1,000 points on the line, 700 double point rounds, and everyone appropriately jokering tonight, the score was not the real competition. The real competition was asking the teams to come up with a wedding hashtag for my sister who is getting married this weekend, on April 1st. The teams were given my sister’s name Jemma, her fiancé Ben, and the new last name Spears. They were also told to not include the word fools, because that’s too cheesy and I hate it! I had originally challenged myself to come up with a hashtag, and had come up with nothing. First thing I learned was that the last name Spears could somehow be spun to sound inappropriate.

Basic Bitches #1-6
Laura

I missed you guys while I was gone last week. I mainly missed smart ass comments and watching your "what the fuck" faces. This week the questions writers must have been trying to get some of you to crack. Some of those questions were outright mean! And hard to explain. But you prevailed! Our blog title this week comes from the team that just felt like round five was maybe too out of their league and decided to guess basic bitch for at least six of the answers.  AND .. we had a semi-innebriated crooner amongst us! It was joy to hear.    So our standings this week go as follows: Not last went to: Sparkly Motion (may I never doubt your commitment

Are you sure Britain is involved?
Dillon

Wondering if France should just pack up and go home. We had an interesting time deciphering the answers to tonight's questions, and had a blast in the process. With some confusion on the points, everyone eventually got in the swing of things tonight, with a couple of new methods to go about doing things. I will do my best to keep you refreshed on the answers, even if they were soo far back in time (3 rounds).  The Misfits got their chance in the sun today with a prize, and Plz Send Nudes led the entire night, and they still never sent me a drink. So much for getting one, boys. Maybe next time. I win some, you lose some, despite being

  You ever have one of those nights that goes smoothly? Like...too smoothly? Tonight was one of them at Rip Current. We had a pretty good turnout and the quiz went off without any major hitch. Usually there is something, like at least a broken pencil or something. Not tonight!   We had 8 teams playing and we missed a couple of our regulars from the last couple of weeks, but hopefully they will be back next week. As If was in the house with another great showing as well as team Fact Hunt who keeps trying to get me to say their name fast. New-to-me but not new to-the-game team Watch Out!

And I need new windshield wipers. The Drinking Team stumbled their way through about half the game, which is good considered they didn't know there was a game happening! Alexander The Great and India came back... with a vengeance! Harrison Tavern serves salmon, and a mean trivia team... Not that they could win. But seriously, salmon on the kid's menu. So good. No one could name my favorite magical Russian, which is a bummer.  Next week is going to be a lot dryer, and a ton of fun!

Ozzimo or The Captain

First let me say this: I am an American soccer fan. Not exactly a USMNT fan but my options are that or nothing so I go with it. It's hard to get excited about us men's soccer (especially compared to the women's team). But then there was Christian Pulisic. The man is 18 years old and KILLING it in Germany. He starts for the US and makes the rest of CONCACAF look FOOLISH in the process. I like this Pulisic kid. He's going to be a star. Keep you eye on him. As for quiz, we had an admittedly low night with just 5 teams participating. We talked many things but the best jab of thie night came on a question about calendars. Some of my quizzers didn't

I was born a poor black child... hold on... nope thinking of someone else. I was born in Suburbia. Like, smack dab. My hometown of Puyallup is famous for 3 things.

1.  1. Before Prohibition it was the hops capital of the world. (Thanks a lot Puritans!! Grrrr) But this just goes to show that when they say there's something in the water around here, they're talking about beer.

2.  2. The guy who played the Dad on "A Christmas Story" graduated from Puyallup High School and is, as far as I know, the most famous person to grow up here.

3.  3. It is the current home of your humble Quizmaster, Ozzimo.

Anyway, here's the quick and dirty. I'm class of 01 from Puyallup High School; I left high school thinking I wanted to teach Choir as that was basically the extent of my knowledge. When I got to college I found out how little these people make and how hard they had to train to do it. I immediately changed my major to Political Science and have never looked back. This is one of the main reasons not to argue with me when you think I’m wrong. I'm trained to win a fight, even if the other person is 6 kinds of right.

I started quizzing when a coworker of mine turned me on to the quiz and mentioned GWD was looking for a Tacoma quizmaster. I went through the pre-req community college course, the ritual hazing, the bleeding/burning of saint if I ever left the family, and the chopping off of my ring finger on my right hand. I'm told this is all legit and there was no need to look it up to check.

You can find me at the Forum on Tuesdays at 8:30. I highly suggest ordering the Juicy Lucy while you're there.

All the Double Points Rounds
Josh Prime

Hey Geeks, What a great pub quiz we had tonight. There were 4 double points rounds tonight! Despite all the double points rounds, we had a really challenging quiz tonight. I'm Surrounded By Assholes was our top team, and they earned 79 points! I can always tell quiz was tough if no one cracked 80 points, let alone in a quiz with 4 double points rounds! Ru Paul's Drag Race has started so expect to see a lot of blogs about the goings on of the drag queens. This week they had Lady GaGa on the show. She started by pretending she was a drag queen contestant. Then she spent like 2 hours talking to each individual about their performance. Next week they are introducing

Hey Friends, I'm Josh Prime and I am from the most hated state in the country, New Jersey (seriously, they did studies). Whatever, I don't have to pump my own gas and never make left turns so... deal with it. Sometimes I mispronounce things and blame being from Jersey too, maybe that's why people hate the state. Aside from my Jersey pride, I am all about pop culture and video games (Nick Arcade anyone?... Anyone?). I keep suggesting a round on 90's Nickelodeon, I want to see everyone rocking out to the All That Theme song - remember when that was a thing? It's been real, it's been fun, its been real fun. See ya at the quiz.

Still Waiting For Star Trek: TNG On Ice! To Finally Come To Tennessee...
foxphyre

Well for the first week in a row I was not pelted by hail as I made my way to the bar for the evenings quiz. I was without my trusty sidekick, who was doing her best to keep her skeletal system from exiting her body through her butt. In lieu of our normal sideshow act, the crowd instead resorted to asking when she will be coming back and requesting the Best of the 80s. Guess this rabble wasn't so dull after all…I was really glad that All The Black Girls In D.C. were able to make it out tonight, and I wish I had told the D.C.P.D. where to find them when I had the chance. High Priority made it a priority to get high and the rest is history.

VR is that JAM!
Chaz_Bazz

I’ve been thinking a lot about VR and AR and I think you can do a lot of cool things with it. I finally got a chance to check out the Oculus Rift and I must say that I was impressed. I wasn’t aware that the level of immersion the device gives you had advanced that far. It tracks your head and you’re able to experience the environment like never before. It’s grander than first person and I’m really excited to see what they do with it. Part of me wonders if it’ll become like Ready Player One, where total immersion through really awesome haptic feedback devices will be the real future. I mean I can’t wait to be in a zombie

Nine Times.   Seriously, who needs a question repeated NINE times? I know you all like to stall, and sometimes you run out of ideas for stall tactics, but seriously nine times? Who does that! You’re just lucky it was a complicated question of states and acquisitions!   It was a hella-fun night of pub quiz here at the ol’ Whisky in West Seattle. We had a great crew tonight. Certainly the most teams since I’ve been Quizmaster in these here parts. So many great teams which included “Mom Genes” and their night of freedom away from the kiddos. Good for you! (You should

It eventually devolved into slow claps and, finally, yawns and clearing of the throats.
