Are we not quizzers? We are Chow!
GMAT & LSAT trainer extraordinaire

Another pub quiz at Chow, another justification of my existence. Whenever returning teams, like the super-awesome-fantastic Girls, the lovely & charming Bees, and the always-there-to-play Of Course They Spell Erika With a K, come back to Chow, it makes me feel like a real, live, person. In the end, Straight Out of Chowton made a great showing, not only winning first place, but winning two bonus questions. Unfortunately, they hid from me when it was time to take pictures, but I will get you guys next time! I was especially impressed by everyone's Round 6 performance about the VMAs, because I would have scored a big fat ZERO, myself. See you guys next week!

Hey there, quizzers! 34 teams! What a great turnout for Stephanie's first night! Speaking of Stephanie, she's our official-longterm-for-keeps Scorekeeper! Thanks for being so nice to her on her first night! I know you're excited to come to our quiz with Two Sexy Ladies from now on ;-). Let's see, what else happened tonight? We had a Round 1 that was confusing for some of you until we got to the Hannibal/elephant question. That was when you finally realized that the answer to the previous question filled in the blank for the new question. Repeats were probably more important for you than normal here.Round 2 was songs about California, while Round 3 was a

Best Quiz Ever: 1 Year Anniversary Edition
DJ ROB ROB

Tonight's quiz at The Ute and Yeti was indescribable. Without a doubt the biggest and best quiz I have yet to host. Tonight was my ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY as a Quizmaster (technically it was Thursday, but there was no other occasion to celebrate) and all the stops were pulled out. The entire venue was completely packed out; there were 14 BIG teams playing tonight, which made the celebration all the better. I also gave away a smorgasbord of prizes ranging from Geeks Who Drink pint glasses to DVDs from my personal collection that were itching to be given away. Ute and Yeti was also quite kind enough to give away a gift certificate prize for 3rd place for the first time

Tonight, the fierceness came out of the park to participate in Quiz. The Mooseik of Denali took first place with 57 points… daring the Joker on the First round! It was their first of many nights of Quiz. Bangarang! San Diego Means a Whale’s Vagina, took second place with 55 points. First for best team name… and you had a serious cartoon nerd with you this week. What luck. In third came Moist Sex on Fire… That’s a name that usually comes first… get it! Anyway, you nailed the audio round WITHOUT Annie! Wow and wowee! We only have two weeks left of quiz for the season. Don’t

Cliff Banger's Campaign for Governor of New York
SirYon

Quiz time is fun time. It beats the blues, for sure. The greens have a tendency to show up, though. And the reds are always invading small countries. No sign of any oranges, however. I think I’ll have one for breakfast tomorrow.   It was an intimate quiz tonight, peppered with requests for Toto songs and wonky rounds that involved careful following by the teams. The fact that more than half the teams still got over 60 points attests to your awesome listening abilities. Or my ability to communicate. Either way, well done quizzers!   And now for a little sentence inspired by tonight’s quiz…   Michael Jackson walked

On a sweltering day in the final months of the Reagan administration, a human baby was discovered by a leopard in the middle of a cornfield somewhere outside Chicago. This baby grew up into a gangly assemblage of brain waves, taught itself to read questions into a microphone and type on a keyboard, and found a job.

 

By day, I go to class and do homework, by night I make subs and quiz people with random questions. I'm a real superhero. Oh yeah, and I absolutely adore all aspects of alliteration. Too bad that never really comes up in the quizzes. Maybe I'll go suggest a round...

 

Drink responsibly and keep your minds open, y'all.

Katherine (also responds to Kat) has been a geek who drinks since before she knew it was a thing to be. You'll find her subbing and quiz-master-ing 'round the port of Denver...other interests include every outdoor sport going, and community theatre. If you've played both Kate and Petruchio, you can't help having a nickname like theshrew. On happier notes, her horse Sparky (pictured) is finally with her in CO, which makes her a much happier and more easygoing quizmistress. Lucky you.

Fred Durst Dared to Dream
Packrit

Now that the weather is getting less molten, we had a quieter crowd tonight and most of the patrons were playing the quiz. It's a nice change from the summer inside voices bustle. And there was some stiff competition. Current events in Round One weren't much of a challenge for the serious competitors. But a curveball Round Two featuring shitty covers of much better songs, threw a few teams for a loop. Luckily, Round Three was Sooner or Later and, thus, worth a precious 16 points. And this Round Three skewed pretty young, asking for cartoons based on less and less obscure characters. At the first score break,

Sheldon's Sleeping
Quizmaster Jason

Sometimes real life comes up. Yes, I know this blog post is a couple of days late. Sorry. It was a great Wednesday at The Canterbury Ale House. We had 15 teams competing. A drop from our 23 last week, but still a good showing.   And the reason we usually write our blogs so soon after the quiz… I’ve forgotten most of the important details from the quiz. I do recall that we had to settle a first place tie, and that Sheldon’s Sleeping was ultimately our winner after some math confusion.   I had a great time, and I can’t wait to do it again next Wednesday.   Quizmaster Jason Out

He hasn't quite mastered talking about himself in the third person, as evidenced by his last sentence.

A Million Dollars to Live with JWarr

After hearing round 3, I've decided to start my own reality show.  It's all about studying for quiz.  In a house.  Locked away from the outside world except for a stack of Madonna and Rhianna albums so you can learn the difference.  We'll cover all the subjects.  Study all the things.  Vote people out of the house based on who has the worst scores.  And at the end, everyone makes me dinner and you get no prize.  I would watch that.  Wouldn't you?   Every time OTPHJ jokers the best round, they get pie.  No pie for them- they had the top music round score and squandered the opportunity, opting instead

The Best-Laid Schemes o' Mice an' Men . . .
Lady Busty

Two weeks ago, I figured I should just leave everything quiz-related (minus the laptop) in my car so that I could get to Aloft early enough to get everything set up and ready for Mitchicus. Yes, I'll keep the pencils, the answer sheets, the sound equipment (just in case), and my car key. You read that right. On the day of the quiz, I left my car key in the car and did not discover it until I was trying to leave from work. I don't have an extra key. The car didn't come with one. I called AAA. I called my husband. I messaged Mitchicus. And I waited. And waited with my car for 45 minutes in the rain with

I was born in Scotland to American parents. I spent most of my youth moving around the world as a Navy brat (think: every two years), spending the most time in the UK. Don't let this Midwestern accent fool you. I'm a Brit. Try as I might, I will pronounce and spell things the British way (it is English, after all) and can have a dry, naughty sense of humour. I love puns to no end. Though I am homesick for the Isles, I have adopted Tucson as my home. I've done enough moving for anyone.

What else? I am a Gemini, so there is (at least) one other side to me and I am incredibly indecisive. If there is ever a decision to be made, please, make it for me. I'll be forever in your debt.

I am a Lady, in that I own land in Scotland: two parcels .

I am honest, though I would never say, to any fault. Try me. I'll answer pretty much any question.

I have two degress in Theatre and run the library at a middle school.

I live with my husband, our ten rabbits, nineteen chickens, nine ducks, five turkeys, six quail, one goose, four cats, two dogs, three mice, two goats, and two turtles.

Not literally, of course. That happened months ago. It was my first quiz! I sucked. But you know who sucked worse? My friends! MereBear, RaeLow, HerrerBear, and Captain Kajander were nice enough to come out and support me. It really puts into perspective why I put up with their bullshit. They played as "Team in First Place". They finished in fifth place. In other news, Hard Chargers bounced then came back, I played a lot of Kanye, and believe it or not France is not in the Southern Hemisphere. Winners of the night were a team of 2edgy4me individuals named "Osman's Cherry" to commemorate my deflowering. I'm sure they are very emotionally-balanced people that don't

Relatively uneventful quiz this week, with no drug-addled street people trying to will a karaoke hot take of “Man in the Box” into existence, nor any misguided know-it-alls babbling about how Russia isn’t part of Asia or some shit. About the closest thing we had to drama was a tie for 2nd between Ginger Bear and Twitz at the end of things. Twitz ended up taking the tiebreaker in OT, while Mothra Hoople, who had an actual multi-person team this week, put in work and took 1st place and tres pintos de Rumbleros.

Well summer is coming to a close and school is about to start back up again. Hopefully this means that we’ll start getting some new attendees! Miranda and I are also on the look out for some new venues so even more hopefully is that we’ll have more trivia coming soon! I’d always wondered what CAPTCHA stood for, interesting that I just watched the Imitation Game this week too.  It still sounds like something that they just had to have an acronym for and that was the best anyone could come up with: Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart…I think they coulda done better.

Oh, no, not again

No, I'm not making an obscure reference to a bowl of petunias in The Hitch-Hiker's Guide To The Galaxy. Unfortunately, I'm referring to my camera.Back when I lived in St. Louis, I worked on The Landing - it's an area on the riverfront and besides the old buildings from the 1800s, it's known for it's cobblestone streets. I was out with my camera one day over my lunch and trying to find something interesting to photograph other than the Gateway Arch. I am not known for my coordination. I'm walking along and OOPS... I trip and fall camera-first onto the cobblestone street. And SMASH went my 70-300mm zoom lens. The UV filter I always keep on there smashed, but unfortunately

You Want Beef? Bring The Ruckus!

Round one had us spelling out "ACRONYMS" using acronyms! From finding out how old someone is and where they live (hint: if you're on the internet all little girls are little boys, all little boys are grown men, and all grown men are actually St Bernards), all the way to dying of SARS while screaming "YOLO, Bitches!" Then we took on a different type of round two in which we wanted to find out who fucking hates who, btw BLUR is the better band. Round three had me making up stupid Reality TV Shows, but with some not-quite-over-the-top-enough-but-still-over-the-top real shows to throw you off my trail.   Round four was a celebration of Adam Atom (not really, but a guy
