Don't Think She Won't Fart In Your Mouth
Specific Heat

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. Most of theseBy our fourth round, we covered contestants on the current season of Dancing with the Stars. Mr.

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

Ok but what are the NAMES of the Two Princes?
Specific Heat

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? What the hell is that?Then our music round was sitting and spinning--on the dock of the bay, with doctors, right round, on flagpoles...you got the pictures.Our special format round was a ture or false round full of sex questions! I would say it was hawt, but mostly it was awkward.

Hey there, quizzers!We started our quiz night with a game of Name That Ginger! I did not know L. Ron Hubbard was a ginger. I wonder if that had any effect on the development of Scientology.Then our music round was a bunch of songs in the imperative tone. Don't tell me what to do!Our special format round was a speed round on Scorses Best Picture nominees--both Oscar and Golden Globe. Tis was rough. Some of you got all 8 points, but we also had three teams get zeroes. You were in good company!By our fourth round, we were talking about fake doctors.

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. Do you know who has copulated with who? For some of you, the answer is a resounding no. But like, the Taylor Swift one at least should have been stupid easy, people.By our fourth

Hey there, quizzers!Back again, Marina! This time for longer. :-) We started our quiz night a round my anaconda loves. Because it was sort of about buns. GET IT?Then our music round was all songs and artists about GLORY!!! So glorious. 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

there's always time for a little wordplay
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

Oh hello there. Hope everyone has a murder-filled Friday the 13th. Thanks a lot to Kyrstin for dropping by and skore keeping while Julia was doing Julia things.    We kicked off the quiz with a round on southpaws. Surprised we didn't see any Ned Flanders' Leftorium references. Our music audio round was another one of the recent 7-song puzzle audio rounds. Previous ones spelled out country names, but this week spelled out the cinematic masterpiece that was AMADEUS.   Round 3 was a sooner or later round for all the US geography buffs out there, featuring 5

Happy Hocus Pocus, 2017
StephanieHagadorn

Hey guys!   So happy to see some familiar faces that weren’t my family members’ after the holidays. And boy did you guys kill it.   We kicked off the quiz with a round where all the answers had “OZ”. And it was pretty much the only round that wasn’t about Hocus Pocus!   Our music audio round was in honor of Stephen Hawking’s 75th birthday so we had some semi-sciency songs for you guys. “Intergalactic” “Radioactive” “Black Hole Sun”. We also learned that every damn Coldplay song sounds

Hey there, quizzers!There were a whole lot of Quizmasters in the building last night for our holiday party and a ton of our regulars came out too, even though it was like 28 degrees outside. That's just nuts. It was in the 70s yesterday morning. The thermostat on my back porch literally saw a 50 degree drop in an 11 hour period. Cold fronts, man.Anyway, once we got started, we talked about memoirs of celebrities and you had to name who the celebrity was. Did you know Rob Lowe read his own audiobook for his memoir? You should really listen to it. It's amazing. He tells you a crazy story about some other celebrity but he doesn't tell you who the other celebrity was until

Hey there, quizzers!Tonight was a tribute to a fallen quizzer, Cindy (aka Lady Jarvis). She started quizzing with Geeks Who Drink right here at Opal Divine's Marina. Cindy passed away this week after a long battle with cancer, and she actually got the chance to compete on Jeopardy! Her episode airs this Tuesday, and we will definitely all be watching her. In other news, tonight we talked about a bunch of less-important-than-Cindy stuff. Like TV shows and movies mentioning HBO, and fake movies made from the titles of real movies by real actors. And onomatopoeias. And fictional characters drawn as babies. And crazy stuff, and musical artists that didn't die this year,

Hey there, quizzers!Great night tonight! The weather was gross but we were inside anyway, so who cares?We started the night with a round on anagrams of musical artists, and the name of one their songs. You had to un-anagram the artist and name them. Easy.Our music round was all about boys. Like the Beach kind, or the kind that Is Mine, or the kind that is Named Sue. You know.Our special format round tonight was a speed round on NBA teams that play in state and provincial capitals. Everyone forgets about the Utah Jazz and the Sacramento Kings. I mean, they're pretty forgettable. Also, Charlotte is not the capital of North Carolina, Milwuakee is

Hey there, quizzers!We started the night thinking about things that are ELEMENTARY, my dear Watson! And by that I mean that everything either started with "sher," or ended with "lock." We even had the answers alternate to make it easier for you. Unrelated, I just belched and tasted pumpkin cheesecake and it was pretty nasty.Our music round was hopeless! Like beating a dead horse! Because every song title had one of those words ("beat," "dead," and/or "horse") in it. We are very clever, and/or out of ideas.Then we had a speed round on NFL, NBA, and NHL teams whose names (not cities! TEAM names) start with S. Stephanie and I were unsurprised to discover that
