My high school AP Psych teacher made me duet that song with him and it was weird
Specific Heat

Hey there, quizzers!We started our quiz night with capping things off. Because all of your answers had "cap" in them. Sometimes it's hard not to quote Finding Nemo.Then our music round was getting things started, since we were done capping things off. Just to be confusing.Our special format round was a 50/50 round on gingery things. The Doctor's never been a ginger, but that didn't come up in the round. By our fourth round, we reminisced about the halcyon first hundred days of our presidents pre-Trump. They accomplished so much stuff! And no nuclear war. :')The visual round was bad celebrity tattoos. That one did LOOK a little like

And we raised over $300 for Planned Parenthood!!!!

Hey there, quizzers!We started our quiz night with answers that could only be spelled using the letters in "May flowers." Because April showers bring those. Mayflowers just bring pilgrims.Then our music round was full of jealous songs and artists. I was pretty sure this music round was going to be easy for you, and I was mostly right. There was some truly iconic music in this round to help you get MOAR POINTS! You're welcome.Our special format round was a Sooner or Later round on foreign companies. I named the companies, you told me what country they were from. We threw in a couple to confuse you, but many of these were actually pretty easy.By

Happy Zombie Jesus Day!
Specific Heat

Hey there, quizzers!We started our quiz night by imagining the cast of I Love Lucy road tripping across America. You had to name the cities they were stopping in. We started off zany and by the end of the round things got...a little dark.Then our music round was artists who debuted on kids' TV. Lots of Disney-Channel-types, but we through in Alanis just to confuse you.Our special format round was a speed round on NBA teams that have never won the title even in their long, storied histories. This would not have gone well for me personally, but y'all did alright.By our fourth round, we talked wine, swine, and the Rhine. Which somehow included discussing

One dwarf, the Spanish word for Then our music round was titles that are statements you wouldn't want to hear from your dentist. Smack That was probably the least scary option we presented.Our special format round was all questions really asked of famous people during a Reddit AMA. You had to figure out who the celebrity was. We did not accept "Screech" for two reasons: 1) His name is Dustin Diamond, and 2) that wasn't even the Saved by the Bell actor we were talking about.By our fourth round, we were ready to throw

That is literally the only thing I know about Wilt Chamberlain
Specific Heat

Hey there, quizzers!We started our quiz night by asking you to tell me what Google always knows. I gave you three search options and you had to tell me what word someone would have been trying to remember with those search terms. I like "giant orange pepper" as an alternative for "pumpkin."Then our music round was eight songs, four titles. It's exactly what it sounds like, although some of the same titles split their words differently.Our special format round was two truths and a lie! You had to name the person the two truths were about, and NOT mix them up with the person we lied about. Which caused some of you some problems.By our fourth round,

Hey there, quizzers!We started our quiz night by asking you What is John Oliver Insulting? I read you quotes from Last Week Tonight, and you just told us the thing that John Oliver was dissing. Lots of jokes to start off the night!Then our music round was song titles that each related to one of the seven deadly sins. The eighth song was an attempt at redemption. For Christians, I guess. I don't think Jesus matters a ton to the rest of the world. Our special format round was biographies of alcoholic types, and you had to name the person.

Geeks Who Drink, brought to you be Pierre, South Dakota
StephanieHagadorn

In case you missed last night's quiz, don't you worry. All you have to know is that Pierre was basically the answer to every question. Makes you think we might be getting some of that sweet, sweet South Dakota tourism board kick back money.  Round 1 let me try out my disatrous Bane impression, as we "let the games begin". But the round was no fun and games if you were hoping for questions ACTUALLY about board games.  Round 2 was our first audio round featuring artists or groups with well known solo artists like Fleetwood Mac or Stevie Nicks, or Gwen Stefani or No Doubt. It tripped up a few teams but most of you guys knew your stuff. Round

Cosmonaut is fun to say though
Specific Heat

Hey there, quizzers!We started our quiz night with answers that were the names of seas, although the questions weren't ABOUT those seas. Cosmonauts is kind of a bullshit name for a sea, sure, but hey man, we didn't name it.Then our music round was songs that are also movie titles. Dazed and Confused, What a Girl Wants, and even Jennifer's Body!Our special format round was 50/50 round about...Pornhub. They released their 2016 Year in Review and obviously that is required reading for everybody, so you were rewarded with quiz points if you went ahead and read it. There's actually some pretty interesting sociological info in there, IMO.By our fourth

Hey there, quizzers!We started our quiz night with eight quick questions on card games, and we brought out some really old-school ones that no one really plays to make things particularly interesting. Euchre?

Good Lord. I have no idea!
StephanieHagadorn

HAAAAAY. It's everyone's favorite substitute host/scorekeeper here. Hope you had a good time last night. Round 1 we learned more than we wanted to about Amazon, the company not the rain forest. Also Jeff Dunham is not the CEO of Amazon. He's that guy with the racist puppets! Jeff Bezos is a puppet master though. Round 2 was another Acrostic Universe audio round. This time we spelled out S-U-B-L-I-M-E the right way. Round 3 was a bit of a fill in the blank with Missing Persons. When in doubt, just guess one of the bridges brothers. Unless of course it's The First Wives Club.    Round 4. HOOO BOY. Round 4. I thought this would be impossible but some

Hey there, quizzers!We started our quiz night with a Geography Edition of a Duh! round. Some of you are apparently SO bad at geography that even these supposedly easy questions were too much. I get it. I mean, Tunisia is still pretty obscure to most people.Then our music round was all things you can do with your mouth, and any time Weird Al is in a round you know it's gonna be a great night!Our special format round was a Sooner or Later round on celebrity sexy times.

Can I get a Hallelujah?Our special format round was a speed round on the state postal codes that are also Scrabble-legal words. Some of these were obviously words (hi, me, ma) and some made me more skeptical (ar? Really?). By our fourth round, we were talking about pioneering women. Annie should get her gun, but not all of the ones we discussed were frontier-types. Aretha pioneered the shit out of her

StephanieHagadorn

Yo yo yo! It's me,Quizmaster Stephanie! Saturday night was off the hook and everyone got schwifty to some new quiz hotness. Round 1 was a trip around the US by postal codes, ID say this was an easy round OR at least a fun one! Round 2 was another puzzler with Accrositic Universe, where the first letter of each artists spelled out the name of the last artists. Round 3 was YET ANOTHER PUZZLER, for all the fans of wordplay out there, this was your night. Round 3 was descriptions of famous people with one letter added to their name. My favorite had to be "The environmental activist from "An Inconvenient Truth" falls into a canyon. Al Gorge". Round 4 drew some flack and round

Hey there, quizzers!It was so great to be back at Opal's after, for me, a four-week hiatus! Just like coming home.We started our quiz night with eight, quick cheesy questions on the moon. I didn't get to say the word "gibbous," but we did talk about Jules Verne, so that was cool.Then our music round was all songs with the same titles as each other. You could name the song for one point, OR for two points you could name BOTH the different artists you were hearing. Each clip was all-or-nothing, just in a slightly different way from normal.Our special format round was a speed round on the states that border Tennessee. There are eight, and most of
