Let Me Sing You The Song Of My People
QM Ed

At quiz last night, we were absolutely packed and Spotify was hitting all of the awesome songs. Of course, I HAD to let so many of them play to the end of the chorus before I could read the next question. I mean, what kind of monster would interrupt Freddie just as he’s about to hit the high note in “Somebody To Love” just to ask a question about Hong Kong? When I got home from quiz last night, I was still wired and decided to watch Superbad for the third or fourth time, so I didn’t get to bed until about 2:00am. At 9:00am on the dot, my two little furballs thought it best to make three-part harmony with the fire truck that lives half a mile away. Round

Quiz or Wings?
QM Ed

Last night at Redemption, I had the honor of taking on a QM-in-training by the name of Matt. Since it was his second night of training and he already has a lot of natural ability, I just let him run most of the show while I ate my wings. Also, I was very pleased to see a handful of new teams to the venue. Hope to see you all come back every Tuesday!  Round 1 – I was actually paying attention since I ran this round. Everybody got seven or eight points. While Matt was scoring this round, we realized we had a team named Here For Beer and the more Prince-inspired Here 4 Beer. We used the new basketball machine to have a 5-shot shootoff for who

Japanese Unicorns and Pie
QM Ed

Yesterday was Pi Day, or 3.14 for you un-mathematical types. In honor of the occasion, my wife made a lovely Key Lime Pie. At least, it looked lovely. She took it to share with her co-workers for a pie buffet of sorts and I didn’t get a piece. I’m not complaining: she bakes pies, cakes and cookies frequently, and we still have plenty of ingredients for another pie. She also joined me for dinner prior to quiz last night, along with my mother and our new neighbors/her parents. So many of the regulars showed up early, as usual, and got to meet my family (in a “Honey, this is everybody; everybody, Honey” sort of way) before we kicked off the quiz. Other

If It’s Tuesday, I Must Be In Indianapolis
QM Ed

For the last seven days, I have been in Seattle visiting old college and high-school friends, and working alongside Geeks friends. As much fun as it was, I am still feeling the effects of the Pacific time zone, so this is a quick-and-dirty blog for this week. Round 1 - Team?, Liz Doesn't Even Go Here, and Spoiler Alert had the perfect scores this round. Round 2 – Holy Music Round, Batman! SIX PERFECT SCORES, five of whom used the joker - Team?, Liz Doesn't Even Go Here, Pawnee Goddesses, Mjolnir, Twinkie and the Brain and Cards. Honorable mention to Spolier Alert for their 15 points and

Somebody Once Told Me
Quiz Czar Mark C

Tonight, tonight! What a night of fun and frivolity! The visual round tonight was probably one of my favorites! I will always have All Star coming in on moves when I watch them now. The crowd really seemed to enjoy the scenes as well, and a good time was had by all! Also joining tonight were a few new teams which is always good to see, especially being a new Quizmaster myself! First place was secured by (**SPOILER ALERT**) Snape Kills Dumbledore. Then we had the ties to end all ties for 2nd place. Teach’Em how to say goodbye: the final days of your squad goals and Alternative Oscar Winners. In the end we had a sudden

Trump Administration Erotic Fan-Fiction
QM Ed

Chapter 1: “Mr. President, the Kremlin is on the line for you.”  “The president will take the call in the residence.” Steve hung up the phone and dropped his cigar on the carpet. With a heavy sigh, he took his feet off the desk and stepped on the burning ember with a practiced twist of his heel. “Come on Don, it’s time to go to work.” “Mff. Mmm ffmmm mff fmm."  A loud crack echoed thought the Oval Office, the President recoiled, half in pain, half in fear. “Did I give you permission to speak?” A wisp of smoke curled out of Bannon’s mouth, his breath laden with scotch. He reached down and

1st Times A Charm!

The curtains rise, the mic cord is attached. Its time! Tonight, I joined the official ranks of Quizmaster! Cue Thunder strike! Tonight, I did my first solo quiz at Redemption Alewerks. The training wheels were off and it was time to bring the quiz to the masses! Tonight, we had a battle royale all the way to the finish. Round 1 was good for a lot of the teams. Perfects scores were sought and achieved with Pawnee Goddesses, Spoiler Alert, Big hero 6 inches DQ, Textualists A.F., Twinkie and the brain, and T-t Waffle scoring a full 8 points starting out the gate. Close on their tails were Cash Me Outside, Ed and A(2) E(2)

Tis Only the Begining
Madison

This week at Redemption Alewerks it was decided by QM Ed that he make me, the new kid on the block, the QM for the night. After some kicking and screaming I finally got him pulled away from the mic so I could get some practice in before opening my quiz next week. With the flip of my hair and the snap of my wit I was off and rolling before no time. With everything from books to music to gods to Tom Hanks this quiz hit all the major chords. And each round brought forth another person with a hidden passion. After butchering some wording and discussing it thoroughly with the crowd we moved on to finish the quiz with the winner being Pawnee Goddesses. As the night

There Were Three QMs At Quiz Last Night #notalternativefact
QM Ed

This was the largest quiz we’ve had in the history of Geeks Who Drink, with over 10 Million quizzers spread out over 300 teams. And fortunately, none of the teams had over six players, so everyone had a chance to win the first place prize of a $1 Trillion gift card to Redemption Alewerks. Round 1 – Every team got perfect scores except Avalanche of Special Snowflakes and No Wrong Answers, Only Alternative Facts. Very bad teams. Terrible. Round 2 – CNN would have you believe that Spoiler Alert had the top score in this round with 14 points and a joker, but sources at GWD say that their team is comprised

Four-Peats, Three-Ways, Taco Tuesdays, and One Nearly-Perfect Score
QM Ed

I was losing my voice towards the end of quiz last night, and today I’m in full-blown cold/flu/upper-respiratory-avian-monkey-SARS territory. If I accidentally breathed on anyone last night, my most humble apologies. First, a spoiler. New Group of Intelektual Badasses won. They won pretty hard. They either had or tied for the top score in every round except 4, and they would have had an even higher score if they had saved their joker for one of the two 16-point rounds they scored perfectly instead of the music round when they only scored a 14. Second, Los Caballeros got their fourth second-to-last trophy in a row. They were actively

New Year’s Resolution 2018 – Stop Procrastinating

So here I am, writing my blog with a little over an hour to spare before I have to go do stuff for my day job. The good news is, I’ve booked my accommodations for Geek Bowl XI, paid a couple of credit cards, had lunch with a friend and future employee, mailed off the last of my holiday gifts to clients, went to the bank… Really it’s been a full day and I’m only about halfway through! Anyway, keeping it short and sweet this week: I’m so happy to have such loyal quizzers at Redemption Alewerks, and I’m looking forward to more fun (practically) every Tuesday with you in 2017. In

Well, 2016, It’s Getting Pretty Late, Best Be On Your Way Now
QM Ed

I don’t think it’s any coincidence that three teams last night were named variations of how badly 2016 has hurt us. In addition to the beloved artists that have passed in the last few days, I’ve had a few deaths among my circle – people who are a few degrees of separation closer than international celebrities. Let me just say this: I am grateful that you and I have survived 2016. Let us take the opportunity to celebrate life and appreciate the time we have with one another more in 2017. We have some hard times ahead, but we are stronger together. Let’s try to keep our eyes on the good and wipe out the bad, in memory and honor of those we’ve lost. /end

A Quizmas Story
QM Ed

I had kind of a rough day before I got to quiz, I won’t go into the reasons here. While I was setting up, a regular quizzer named Allison handed me a card addressed to “The Best QM Ever.” My mood immediately turned around. While I was taking team photos, regular team Your ____ Goals gave me a card addressed to “You Big Slut,” which made me feel even better; the lovely book in adorable puppy wrapping paper put me over the moon.  I am so fortunate to have so many wonderful people in my life, and to have made friendships with so many of you through our time every Tuesday. It’s the highlight of my week. It is an honor and a privilege

Existential Questions and the Burden of Proof
QM Ed

I received an email at 4:35am this morning – two words long with an exclamation point and a question mark. The sender of this email is demanding – through her previous emails, all with similar writing style, punctuation and lack of capitalization - that I produce evidence of a thing that doesn’t exist. Philosophically speaking, it is impossible to prove that a thing doesn’t exist. One may prove the existence of something – take for example, the Loch Ness Monster. I can show that there are no signs that would indicate the presence of such a monster. I can continue to gather evidence that suggests that such a monster does not live in Loch Ness. But I cannot
