What is this, movie night?
Nate Fincher

With an inordinate amount of movie questions one might think it was Oscar night or something. International movie trivia day? Who knows…Luckily most teams made up their losses with these three round. Some of the non-movie rounds proved to be quite brutal, with some teams choosing to just say fuck it and not turn anything in! I just couldn’t bring myself to play one more mash-up round, especially if it was gonna be Smash Mouth’s All Star. Nope just couldn’t submit to that torture. Those rounds of constant repetition (that Matt Damon round months back still haunts me), just tend to ruin whatever it is that is repeated over and over and over and over and over

Pretty Relapse?
Nate Fincher

Mark this date, after a humphabula weeks winning streak, Pretty Prolapse has finally fallen from 1st place. Its been a long time coming, and teams have been studying up their trivia in attempts to dethrone the champs. After weeks of being o-so-close one team was finally able to pull it off! Congratulations to Drunk Erika! See, the more you drink at trivia, the better you get! Just ask Erika, she was drunk and whooped all ya’all’s asses! I sure hope she didn’t wake up too hung over today. In other disappointments of the evening…shame on us for calling ourselves “Geeks” and not having even one question relating to Pi…or

Do What You Gotta Do
Nate Fincher

Most teams are happy enough to just play and work their brains and just have fun even if they don’t know all the answers. Then there’s those teams who seek out people to fill certain types to round out their team, like not having a team full of mages, but balancing out with a mage, a rogue, an archer and a barbarian…then there’s those rare teams that will do ANYTHING to win. That describes our reigning champs, Pretty Prolapse. So we’ve all wondered what it is that makes them so undefeatable. Their secret? Black magik!!  It’s still unknown which god, deity, demon or spirit it is that they’ve been summoning, but whatever it is, it’s

Coincidence?
Nate Fincher

Is it coincidence that after decades of searching for habitable planets that after He Who Shall Not Be Named is elected to the highest office in the land? I think if he makes it as SCROTUS, by the end of his term, we’ll have viable interstellar travel…and maybe colonization. Although if they decide to call any of the planets LV-426 or Aceron, I’m not going. I’ve seen all the Alien movies to know better than that! Our editors nailed it about everyone forgetting that Viola Davis was in Suicide squad. Just about everyone playing tonight was commenting “oh, yeah she was in that wasn’t she?” Sad that such a great actress had such a forgettable

All “A”, No “V”
Nate Fincher

I thought our audio rounds sounded better than the video round so I opted for that tonight. I’ll make it up to you next week, I promise. But if you’re really into initials, be sure to check out the T&A of the Men of the Den, The Wayward Lamb’s own amateur strip night! That’s next Monday night, be sure to check that link for the event page. Ya know, (a little shameless promotion) that’s the night after the return of my drag show!

Commercial Holidays
Nate Fincher

Anyone that knows me knows how much I dislike most holidays (Except Halloween of course!). I don’t know what it is about them. Is it the obligatory gift giving? Is it spending time with family that I may not want to see? I dunno…but Valentine’s Day has probably always been my least favorite. People say “oh, its because your single”, well, no that not it. I disliked Valentine’s Day even when I wasn’t single. I just think its sooo cheesy. Cheesy isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but I think it’s too cheesy, like Velveeta. I’m sure plenty of things sucked last night, but one of them wasn’t trivia! Sure, it was sickly saturated

I totally didn't poison Nate...
Francis

Plague has been spreading throughout the little town of Eugene, and not even quiz masters are immune!  Regular Wayward host Nate was stricken by the flu, leading to a call to Eugene’s favorite substitute (by nature of being Eugene’s only substitute): Francis Pastorelle!  As your guest blogger, let me begin by squashing any rumors that I poisoned Nate in order to get a gig.  It’s patently untrue; my poison doesn’t even arrive for another couple of weeks!  Next time I’ll use Amazon Prime…

Rapidly Out Growing Our Space
Nate Fincher

It’s a good thing the end of winter is close…we’re gonna need to bundle up warm and open the windows so we can use the tables out front. All the seats in the house were full last night, no joke, full house. Even I was standing. I think I may need to consider moving to the opposite end of the bar. Yeah I think that would give me a better vantage point, and I would be able to see the screen. I think I’ll try that next week, so everyone, I’ll be behind you now. Don’t worry, I’ll watch your back. All those characters from round one sure musta wished they had someone watching their back. That shit was brutal! Crushed by a house sized fruit, a couple

A COW?!

Really, a cow was mayor!? I’m gonna have to look into this and see about getting her on the ballot for 2020. You know she’d do a better job than… No, I won’t go political today! That’s what Facebook is for. But seriously, how exactly did a cow get to be mayor? This had to have been a joke or something. I’ve definitely gotta look this one up. The crowd seemed quite enthusiastic about Computational Fluid Mechanics…and slightly dismayed when I told them it was gonna be computations, fluids, and mechanics instead. I don’t even know what computational fluid mechanics is! I’ll add that to my list of shit to look up and

Walk-ins Take the Cake
Nate Fincher

Sure, regulars are the back bone of keeping trivia going. I’m always so happy to see my regulars and always so bummed when I find out they won’t be there (because of friends from outta town!? Really!?! BRING THEM TO TRIVIA!!!). But even better than regulars is the walk-ins! The people that have no idea what the hell is goin on, the people who, for whatever reason, have stumbled into our little flock of lambs. And it’s always the best when those newbies win! Taint Misbehavin’ came into our house and OWNED IT!! These two guys gave us the smack down on two bonus questions and took 1st place with a 2 point lead. Well played with that joker on a 16 point

The Benefits of Sharing
Nate Fincher

So, this may become a thing. Last night we ran a special at the bar where if you shared the event on facebook and showed the bartender, our beautiful Meredith, then she would give you happy hour prices all night! So, folks, it could really benefit you to keep an eye on facebook for trivia events. Make sure you’re following “Geeks Who Drink – Eugene” and the “Wayward Lamb” on facebook. If this becomes a thing, that’s where you’ll hear about it first! Team names last night were both inventive and descriptors of the team members. Lex’s Dads sat up at the bar, but no Lex was seen…she must be underage and dads had the night out!

Bigger is Better
Nate Fincher

So what if we only had 4 teams, they were 4 large teams! And that was enough to fill out the front “fish bowl” of the bar. This whole front space is starting to grow on me, I feel more in the crowd that over the crowd. If I wanted to reign over a crowd I’d be a drag queen…oh wait… So we all loved George Michael, but what made him so special to get nearly a whole quiz about him? Was it cuz he was last to go/ freshest in our mind? Or do one of you editors have a little chub for sexy ol’ George? I bet it’s the later. Such a shame I’ll never get to catch him in the men’s room.

Where My Audiophiles At?
Nate Fincher

Everyone peed on round 2, apparently those songs were more abstract that originally intended! Many teams had blank looks. Most were able to pull either an artist or a song title only few were able to get both. Outside of that teams made it a fairly even night. Most teams stayed neck ‘n neck throughout the night. Bonus rounds were dominated tonight by two guys on the same team and then taking 1st place tonight, Pretty Prolapse was in a great position to feast on free food after trivia! No one left hungry there…way to crush the competition guys! I was surprised at the lack of sing-along we got with The Bad Touch playing for both the video round and answers.

Return of the Sports Round

Well the crowd spoke…we were forced to do a sports round. Haven’t done of those in a minute, have we? How do you make your QM feel stupid? Make him read shit that makes absolutely no sense to him. I don’t know what the hell and RBI is…isn’t that an outdoors store? I got shoes there once. Active Points Leader? Yeah nope, nothing…And I don’t know any hockey player not named Wayne. The closest I get to knowing anything about sports is that in men’s gymnastics they wear tights and that reminds me of superheroes, and it’s nice to look at them. Yeah, so if we’ve got sports rounds, please do NOT ask me for clarification, cuz I

Is this a bribe?
Nate Fincher

It’s a well known fact that I can be bribed with shots. Preferably tequila. Vodka and whiskey will work too…but if you really want to earn something extra $14/shot scotch will definitely do it. And if you make it a double, then my first born is yours! Well, to the beautiful blonde British lady who bought me something tasty, you can have the first two born! Silly me, thought it was tequila, but as soon as that sweet amber got to my lips I realized something was off with this “tequila”. As I tossed the double into my mouth I become conscious that I had not in fact just tossed whisky into my mouth. As I swished gently I began to feel shame as I came to the conclusion

Monkey See
Nate Fincher

Its working!! Being up front, in clear view of passerbyers help bring in nearly double what we started the night with. Unfortunately one of the larger groups was made up of more than a few out of towners, but the locals are definitely interested in coming back since their regular Tuesday night trivia has been cancelled. Sorry not sorry… Since we had a bunch of newbies, there was a little confusion coming into mid rounds. Especially with that crazy music round! I still don’t get the connection between the lyrics and the song choice…of was the complete randomness part of it? No one knows… Thank goddess the next confusing round was 50/50, it wasn’t
