Who The F#%& Is This QuizMaster?
Michael

Lets take a minute to go over the rules… Specifically the rule that says “Don’t F#%& with the Quizmaster”… This rule clearly does not apply to Substitute Quizmasters… As the Heat was on! Including one aptly named team "WHO THE F#%& IS THIS QUIZMASTER” Overall the night was fun… 24 seasoned teams back again to the 49th State Brewing Company… A couple of newbies sprinkled through out (including me the substitute QM) There were plenty “Cash Me Outside How Bou Dah” references (Im not sure if this was a dank meme reference or if they truly wanted to fight me because I was a new substitute…) There

Quiz for a Cause
Kathleen

Holy moses what a large crowd! what a great turn out for Quiz for a Cause!   great game tonight. the usual players won first and second place, and the first place gave half their winnings back to the non-profit. 49th is so accommodating and just loves having GWD (shameless self promotion)   don't have much else to say. we had many dirty named teams (i quizzed in her face?) and i love it. we trained a new QM TONIGHt for the valley, he's an on-air MC and heckin' nailed it.

that one time the quiz had a round...
Kathleen

DID GEEKS WHO DRINK FORGET WE HAVE QUIZ IN ALASKA??   when the round was read, we all CRIED OUT IN REVOLT AND THREW OUR MIDDLE FINGERS TO THE SKY!! i don't think we had 100% perfect rounds, but that would have been amazing. another packed house at 49th state! 27 teams. we had some hecklers in the front, honestly my first time dealing with someone yelling "answers" out during the quiz, but i think the active ignoring worked well. oh! so on pornhub today, there's  PSA stating that pornhub will be encrypting its websites so that the government cant track it. a teams name tonight was "pornhub cares more about me than my government". SOMEONE must have visiting

Who brings a baby...
Kathleen

...to a bar?? three sets of parents, and by golly they were the cutest lil things ever. i suspected some of the teams used these babies for their giant wealth of knowledge. and didn't count them as members of the team because technically they "cant talk" but whatevs!   fun night tonight! another full haus, 25 teams! had to move in extra tables. man i just love our monday night crowd. lots of the same folks (obvi, check out the top 4 teams, they just rotate every week as to who wins 1 2 or 3 place), and sometimes emotions run high and frustrations arise, but overall folks are super easy going. EXCEPT FOR TONIGHT when a team came in 2nd but they had 7 people and so they

perfection
Kathleen

we had a team make a PERFECT SCORE tonight! i've only seen this a couple times before, and MAN, how obscure for them to know so much about composers and russian history??   another full haus tonight! 24 teams. no ties, as the "not last" tie had a forfeit! we had some technical difficulties like last week, but we figured it out early this time thanks to the hard work of the manager (WE LOVE YOU CHRIS). i think this week the scoresheet should upload?? SO MANY TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES LAST MONDAY but not today SATAN! not today.   i like to preface my quizzes with "if i see your phone out, i'm going to assume you're sexting. and in that case, i will

this is my blog
Kathleen

...DUDE. BRUH. OMG. first things first, i get to the venue half hour before quiz, and they're already moving long folding tables in to accommodate for the MILLIONS OF PEOPLE that were there to play quiz. no lie, we had 30 teams and definitely 200+ people in the ball room. We couldn't find the right connector to play our music (and/or the audio rounds), and then i broke not one but two microphones. A very bumpy and long start but HOLY SHIT the staff at 49th is bad ass and our quizzers were patient and drunk and I LOVE THEM ALL. I had to yell the questions at

Kathleen

first quiz in months that the majestic Harambe hasnt come up in a team name. DON'T LET THE LEGEND DIE GUYS.   21 teams tonight, all in the cellar. i love that space, with the barrels on the walls and such. Tonight ran well, all things considered. tight spaces, lots of people, hard to hear, but we made it through the wildernessssss we made it throughhhhhhhhh   first place went to the Centaur Rodeo, per ushe. tonight though, they booed themselves before anyone else could boo them. i thought that was hilarrrrious.   there was a team tonight, team eeehhhhhh, that drew pictures in their name space on each page. i didn't know who the

first time for everything
Kathleen

for those who quiz with me often, you know that i typically sound as if i'm in a perpetual state of intoxication and i slur like a mother fucker. WELL LAST NIGHT I PRONOUNCED EVERYTHING. like, everything. folks cheered for me. it was a shining moment in my quiz history.   in the incredibly upgraded basement of 49th, we shoved 23 mouthy teams! Everyone had a great time. they all told me so. every one. we even had a birthday. we laughed, we cried. we drank.   no tie breakers needed, but 1st place killed with 93 points!   so long and thanks for all the fish!

The Colossus of Rhodes aka Statue of Liberty
Warren

Huge turnout at 49th State Brewing Company this Monday night, 24 teams showed up to battle it out for supremacy in Pub Quizzology!!! Special “Thank You” to all that came out to play and to the staff of 49th State for dealing with the change in location, all were very patient and made the night run very smoothly. But where did the true competition happen? Not for first, again Centaur Rodeo ran away with the top spot, a solid 10 points ahead of second place A Team Has No President. And there the battle occurred, No President finished one point ahead of third place Clusterfuck Ahoy and two points ahead

Not Your Ethiopian Tubes...
Melanie

We had lots of fun, filling in for Warren this week at the 49th State Brewing Co. Lots of great rounds, we had a turn out of over 20+ teams, and the room was packed. First place went to Centaur Rodeo, Second place went to Drunks Who Geek and Third place went to Fuck It. We did have a tie for Not Last, but one of the teams, Team Bros had left before the end of the quiz; which means our Not Last team went to Up Ship Creek.   Congrats and we hope to see everyone next week!

Kathleen

and angiosperm was his name...o?   another GGRRREEEAATTTTT night at 49th state! man, it felt good to be back on stage in front of my adoring fans...   just kitten, but it was good to get behind the mic again!   I love the rivalry our long term teams have garnered. its kind of my favorite thing to pause dramatically betweeen announcing 2nd place, just to watch them all squirm.   Centaur rodeo came in 1st, Drunks Who Geek came in 2nd. had lots of newbs tonight!

The Baby is Back!!!
Warren

As January comes to a close one more Pub Quiz at 49th State Brewing Company occurred…19 teams filled the room, sampling the cuisine and beer and bravely competing in the GWD Pub Quiz. All entered with the hope that they would be successful, but the Quiz would not be defeated tonight, no teams would break the century point barrier this evening…maybe next week…hmmmmmm?!? The usual suspects battled for the top spots this evening…regulars Centaur Rodeo and Drunks Who Geek went back and forth for the entire quiz, with the Drunks beating out Centaur by one point to take the top spot, while Centaur continues to finish

So I messed up, so what?
Warren

Who knew that 17 teams would show up for Geeks Who Drink Pub Quiz at 49th State Brewing Company and not one person would know, or care about, Woody Allen movie, I think the response to the question review was, “who cares he’s a pedophile….” Note taken. That one question aside (and everyone missed it) scores were high, attitudes were pleasant, and the beer was flowing on a snow covered evening of Pub Quizzing. The top two spots tonight were determined early as Fuck Bitches Get Money-> Put That On Your Resume ran away with first place ending the night an impressive 97 points. Quiz regulars Centaur Rodeo placed second

Gilmore Girls Do Alaska!
Quizmistrix Lalenya

Or rather, Alaska Does Gilmore Girls! What an amazing night!  So many super fans!  And so many quiz virgins!   This quiz certainly separated the casual from the uber Gilmore Girl Geek.  When it was all said and done The Life and Death Brigade pulled off the big win, taking home $165!  Team Awesome was right behind, but they made a big tactical mistake in using their joker too early in Round 7 and had to settle for 2nd. Taking Not Last by just 1 point was Kanga & Roo.  If only Tess had stayed in town for another couple weeks... So, for all of you newbs, we do this quiz

What Global Warming, look at all this Snow!!!
Warren

It was Monday night and time for Pub Quiz at 49th State Brewing Company, and………no one was there, well, not no one…I was there with the servers and bartender from 49th State, but no players were there, at least not 30 minutes before game time! I could blame this on a multitude of reasons but I will single out the Anchorage Snowmagedon of 2017!!! Over a foot of snow fell on Anchorage from Sunday through Monday evening, and the glorious city continued to fail in clearing the streets in a reasonable manner. And to my chagrin, at 7:05pm, the Pub Quiz began and 16 teams braved the weather to compete. In the end Centaur Rodeo
