As my parents said, "It's summer. Go outside."
Brydon

Howdy, friends! Thanks for enjoying another Monday night with us drinking geeks over at Wibby.   I'm always so thankful when it starts to get warm. Not only because of my garden, my wife's roses, or the ability to drink on my porch without freezing my ass off, but because WIbby's outside is available to quizzers (provided we can see each other, of course!). So much room for activities! Plus, loud talkers have the opportunity to sit outside instead of directly in front of me. Not that they do, but at least they have the option.   And did we ever have activities tonight! Amid rounds on movie character switch-ups, (supposedly) easy two-word

RVyay!
Brydon

Happy quiz day, folks!   Thanks to everyone for braving the weather tonight. I know that we tend to go a bit crazy when it rains here in Colorado (some would say worse than snow, although that may be a bit too much hyperbole for me), so I appreciate you all making the death-defying sacrifice. Hopefully everyone made it home safe and didn't get swallowed by the Mighty St. Vrain.   Our winners tonight were Le Pen is Not as Mighty as Le Sword, who not only punned the shit out of their name, but also made me really upset that Macron doesn't actually translate to "sword", or any sharp instrument, for that matter. Everyone's

Three-way in Third
Brydon

Howdy, Wibsters! Tonight was a great start to the week, as always. We had some close and tumultuous rankings this evening. One team, however, led the pack the whole night: The New Hunger Games: Catching Fyre Mocking Ja Rule. They really got the multiple pun 3x modifier for their team name. Apparently laughing at a bunch of instagram "influences" was a big topic this week because we also had Better than Fyre Festival. Although they placed sixth, they still (likely) had a better time than were they at Fyre Festival. At least we had beer and potable water.   Anyway, while Thew New Hunger Games led for the night,

You're Welcome.
Brydon

Howdy! Thanks to everyone: regulars, newcomers, and occasionalcomers for coming out tonight and enjoying a lovely evening. To be fair, it was classic Colorado "shitty spring" out there, but we need the moisture, so I think it was awesome. In fact, my only issue with the intermittent showers tonight is that I haven't gotten my rain barrels set up yet. My wife and I went to a workshop in Boulder (yeah I know, I know, I know) last weekend and we got hooked up with two former Coca-Cola syrup 30ish gallon barrels that have been "upcycled" (yup, that's a thing) into rain barrels. I got to validate the aspects of my socially-perceived masculinity

The Same Three Chords. All Night.
Brydon

Happy Monday, folks!   We had a packed house tonight at Wibby and a damn good time. Brew or Brew Not, there is no Rye lamented last keg of their favourite beer here with doubly awesome beer and Star Wars pun. They really should look into our upcoming Star Wars theme quiz, now that I think about it. But anyway, those folks took first place! Second place was a bit contentious, with three teams tieing for it: Wibby WildHawks, Bakers Dozen Minus 6, and Frankie Goes to Hollywood. However, the Wibsters are our house team and were playing for the moral victory. And the Baker's Dozen Minus Six equals 7 (13-6), so they were

Laws of the 'Net
Brydon

Howdy, Wibbsters! Thanks for another great Monday and start to the week.    We had a fun quiz tonight, especially because of all the puppies here tonight (Hi, Hank! Hi Zaf! Who's the good boys? You're the good boys!).   Part of our quiz involved a law coined by a guy named Godwin, that said that as a discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1. Basically, the longer folks talk online about something, the more likely they are to compare something or someone to Hitler. Many of you were unfamiliar with Godwin's Law, so I thought you might be interested in some other internet

On Being a Hyper-local D-list Celebrity
Brydon

Occasionally I run into folks out-and-about in Longmont and we go through this weird ritual:  - I kind of recognize them and they kind of recognize me.   - I try to ignore them because I'm really awkward and don't know what to say. - They come up to me and say something along the lines of "hey, I think I recognize you. Are you the trivia guy?"   - I say, "Yeah, I run the quiz at Wibby on Mondays."   - One time I had someone say that they've never been there. So god knows how that happened. But usually they say, "Oh yeah, that's cool. <insert something

Canadian Quizmaster Problems
Brydon

Happy Monday, folks!   As always, we had a fantastic night here at Wibby, so thanks for coming out! Some of you realised (the observant ones, I guess?) that I was out last week. I done got sick and didn't feel like spreading it around. Thankfully, Richard was awesome enough to show up and hold down the fort for me. I usually ask subs if they did anything that you all responded well to, and 90% of the time they give me the exact same answer: "They said that I wasn't as nice as you". I guess that's what you get being a Canadian Quizmaster? But I do want to thank you all. At the risk of sounding too hippie/Boulder, we have a really positive environment and

Sloopy Goes to Wibby
QM Richard of Longmont

Sloopy wasn’t usually interested in driving to quiz somewhere else, but Arfwyldo called at the last minute and suggested they meet up at Wibby Brewing in Longmont. So, Sloopy got in his pedal car and started south. It wasn’t long before he had a beer in hand and had his answer sheet ready to go, but no Arfwyldo. Eventually he showed up and their scores began to improve. Nevertheless, Google translate movie quotes kicked their ass. Then there was a round on Stravinsky and it was over for Sloopy. Thankfully for him, Wibby, being a brewery, didn’t have any tequila.

So, are you in need of a quizmaster? Well, I pilot the most grown up and pedantic quiz in Loveland. No BS, tantrums or grief. You come out, you drink and you play the damn quiz people.

Spawn was too easy
Brydon

Glad to see that everyone has gotten over their daylight savings time shock and shown up tonight! I almost didn't. The problem with working nearby a window for your day job is that it's super easy to just forget what time it is and go by the quality of light caressing the top few inches of your cube.   Our top three teams tonight were all super-close, with only a three point spread (78, 77, and 76). And sadly, we can only give out prizes for the top two. The Big Quizowski took first place tonight, with Spoiler Alert (spoilers, they got second) taking second place. Grats! And a jolly good show to Zaf to the

Habitat for Huge Manatees
Brydon

We had the pleasure of hosting the St Vrain Habitat for Humanity tonight at our Quiz for a Cause. And you guys showed up and put up, because we raised $210 for their oh-so-worthy cause. According to our rep from Habit, Kaleigh, we raised enough money to pay for all the nails in a house as well as its thermostat. That's some hot, house-nailing action right there. Go us.   Zafitat for Dogmanity, our favourite dog-based (named Zaff) team who hasn't brought their dog in a while, ended up taking a solid first place! They were even cool enough to donate their winnings back to Habitat, so go them! Moose

That's why we tell you to put your phone away
Brydon

When we have such fantastic rounds like Bork to Bork Hits, an entire audio round of the Swedish Chef covering some well-known hits, and Hey God, Would You Mind Sorting These People Out (pause) A Round on Massacres, I have to reiterate to folks that they really need to put their goddamn phones away. Not just because I hate dealing with having to tell a team that even though they were just texting their Grandma during the super-hard round, it looks really bad and I can't give them points for it. But also because when we have these hilarious rounds (ok, in the Massacres case, it's just a hilariously juxtaspository title),

Drinker in Chief

Happy Monday, folks. And a super-happy President's day to everyone. In honour of our leaders throughout the ages, we're going to talk about favourite presidential booze! Not all presidents because that's far too much effort. But countless articles have given me neat information, so let's go with it and pretend that it's somewhat verified.   Washington (and others) — He made whiskey, so I'm willing to bet he liked it a bit. Also documented as enjoying a dark porter. Other notable presidential whiskey drinkers were Andrew Jackson, Martin Van Buren, Zachary Taylor, and Andrew Johnson. Anecdotally, Johnson was completely hammered for Lincoln's

Schindler's Duck
Brydon

Happy Monday, folks, and welcome back from our brief one-week sabbatical. Turns out the Wibsters got a Monday off for super-happy-fun-employee-time, and I got a night off to (as I mentioned two weeks ago) watch the Bachelor with my wife and update our fantasy league in real time! As a side note, I'm totally crushing it. Apparently, I can really pick the crazy — like the lady that tried to choke the dude because she was upset and/or horny. Seriously. The producers really know how to make the crazy come out. Anyway, enough about my weird hobbies. We had a blast tonight.

I Have Issues
Brydon

Happy quizday, everyone!   We had a great crowd tonight at Wibby. We Don't Need No Stinkin' Joker took a solid first place, although they were playing with seven folks, so they gracefully disqualified themselves from the prizes. They totally got the moral victory, though. Even if they did end up using their joker. Zaffy Tyler Moore took second/first then, winning some cool Wibby swag while reminding me how sad I am that MTM has passed from this earth. At least she waited until 2016 was over and done with, I guess? We had a tie for third/second, with Erika the Wingus and Richard Noggins settling

My Cat the Gaslighter
Brydon

Happy Monday and welcome to those looking for some closure to tonight's quiz. Not that anything really needed closure, but I just wanted to greet anyone with that motivation.   We had a fun night. Some folks who liked Wibby's new Schwibby Schwartzbeer, named You're Either Schwibby or Against Me, ended up taking first. My new favourite besties, ¡Viva La Vulva!, who I'm assuming I had the privilege of marching with this past Saturday, took a well-deserved second place. First and second both got a delicious six-pack, and first got the added bonus of a $10 gift certificate.   In case anyone is
