Quadruple B
QuizGentleman Bryton

Weird how time flies and goes by slowly at the same time. I'm reminded of this by Brittany Badger's Birthday Bonanza, who are not only celebrating the birthday but their one year quizziversary. Isn't that nice? But the thing is, I thought they'd been playing way longer. But the other thing is, it's been a year already? I guess some questions are unanswerable.  Speaking of birthdays, happy birthday to Sione of the Guesstapo. Nice victory, with Death by Misadventure right on your heels, and right on their heels was Clintons Killed Harambe, and right on their heels was Eff the Music Round.    I

Who missed seeing me at Lumpys? I sure did. It's been a long time, but I was so glad that I could come in and visit Lumpys again! We had quite a crowd today with makes me believe that I must be much cooler than Bryton.  We started out strong with a lot of nearly full points in our round 1. Then we proved just how little everyone knows TV during our round three on Emmy-nominated shows.  I want to give a huge shoutout to The Beer for loosing so beautifully. You guys were consistently on the bottom and incredibly proud of it. At least you weren't Eff the Music Round who oddly rocked the music round but unfortunately did

QuizGentleman Bryton

There has been an awakening, have you felt it? The fall. It is here. I love autumn, and it's been a lovely Thursday night outside which makes me want to enjoy the cozy confines of Lumpy's Downtown. Great time in the basement, but for pete's sake y'all gotta invite your friends, neighbors, family, lovers, enemy. We're really kicking ass downstairs but we need more competitors to put a stop to Tim Commander (The Brofessor) and Sione (ITT Tech Graduate) and Bemo's reign of terror. Thanks to JAM for giving it a shot tonight! I didn't talk to you too much because you were engrossed in the Branko's game, but thanks for playing and

and the skies opened up
QuizGentleman Bryton

What a night in Salt Lake City! There was a heckuva lot going on, Comic Con, Twilight Concert, the Utes "game," (wasn't much of a game eh?) plus apocalyptic weather outside. I'm thrilled about those of you that joined us at Lumpy's and hope you had a good time! I sure did.    Eff the Music Round was named accurately. No one liked the music round. At least not based on your scores. But hey! You did well on Random Knowledge and that's usually the hardest one! Good job.    Somehow I Wish This Microphone Was a Giant Horse Cock managed to finish in 5th place, even though there were only four teams.

Oh, it's prison themed!
QuizGentleman Bryton

On a typical quiz the highest score possible is 96. Every venue and every quiz is different but from my experience, put yourself in the high 70s and you have a good shot at winning. Miss only six questions on the whole quiz? Well that's something to write home about. Except for tonight, when What's Your Poo Telling You? missed six and and finished in third! Surely the team that only missed four questions won, right? The old strangers We Missed You, Bryton. Nope, second. The Guesstapo missed but two questions the whole night. Frankly, that is insane. They were due though, since for weeks they've been playing against each other. Yes it was a

Why does no one want my off-brand cinnammon whiskey?
QuizGentleman Bryton

So we don't care for tv theme covers eh? That was a rough one. Rough on me that is. I thought the metal version of the Stranger Things theme was pretty clear, but then when I said it was Stranger Things I was met with silence. Why you haven't you watched that show? I know some of you can afford Netflix with all the money your saving by winning at quiz. Come on now.    Avuncular Vegans! Hope you enjoyed your first time. Congrats on placing third and I hope to see you back soon. Dicks Out For Harambe had an awesome Round 8 for a big surge at the end, but couldn't compete with I'll Tell You Something, Brother!!!

There is a Light After All
QuizGentleman Bryton

This morning standing around the water cooler at the Quizmaster break room, we started talking about single-player teams. A colleague of mine said "It's really hard to win while playing solo, unless you're some kind of Jeopardy champion."   Well Where Smeagols Dare, a team comprised of one member, won our Thursday night quiz and indeed B-Mo is a Jeopardy champion. So there! Fun, raucous night in the basement of Lumpy's. I don't like to ever apologize for terrible covers during the audio around, but I am sorry for any emotional scars you may have now that you've heard those nu-metal cover songs. I had to play them loud though so you could truly appreciate

This quiz just made me want to go home and watch all the Bob's Burgers and that is exactly what I did.  Everyone at the quiz really put all their effort into their answers but who knew that it would be this tough!  Luckily you mostly had the same amount of knowledge.   There was quite a range of points but Regular Sized Quiz Team pulled through to win the cash prize right in front of Derek Dematopolis and the Neck Hair.  However, Trivial Prosciutto Burger deserves a shout out for not only the best burger pun name but also for keeping the last place in lock down the whole time.

QuizGentleman Bryton

Twilight Concert Series kicks off tonight! Like Hall H, it's much better to be in the basement of Lumpy's than at either of those other locations. Trust me. I mean, I'm not trying to tell you how to have your fun but it's just too hot to be outside and Pioneer Park just gets too crowded.  So thanks to all who joined me at Lumpy's for another night o' quiz. Don't forget next week is Bob's Burgers so come to that or don't. Definitely come if that's the kind of thing you like. Otherwise original recipe quiz returns the following week.     Tight scores after the first break, but eventually a solo B-Mo broke out from the pack and

You all are rockstars tonight.  S ure there were only three teams, but does that really matter if everyone had fun and used their brain a little more than usual?   The whole night the rankings stayed pretty much the same.  Although the scores do seem to prove that the more people you have the more likely you are to win.  At least tonight they do... Flying Like Hans; Solo! unfortunately came in third (aka last).  However, that does not mean he did not try the hardest, pun intended for that seventh round, if you know what I mean.  Smartinis barely beat out the trivia travelers from AZ, Mr.

Alright Lumpy's! Back to the basement, back to a normal quiz. But to keep things fresh we did it backward. I set up on the... west? side of the basement. It weirded everybody out. I liked it just fine. Just kidding it weirded me out too. Let's never do this again.  Gamaliel! Now that's a name and a half. Warren Gamaliel and Nate Dogg. Lyndon Beatrice Johnson. John Firenze Kennedy. Let it not be said our presidents didn't have weird middle names. Harry Seinfeld Truman. George White Walker Bush. Chester Alvinandthechipmunks Arthur.

Well that was like a whole shark week crammed into one night! That was a lot of fun, gang. Thanks for coming. You’re all my new BFFs. Our new pre-reg system seemed to work. Had a good sized crowd, didn’t have to turn anyone away or put any babies in the corner. Kudos to A Blaffair to Rememblack for being fully costumed. I wasn’t wearing a costume unless “Bryton had a job interview before the quiz” counts as a costume. Gar helped me out at scoring and was resplendent in Geeks Who Drink wear. I had a lot of fun putting together the bonus prizes, hope you winners liked them. My customizable trucker

QuizGentleman Bryton

Today we're going to talk about argon! A very underrated noble gas, underrated indeed, since no one got it in Round 8 Thursday night. Though neon gets all the credit in neon signs, argon plays a crucial role in those classic signs advertising open businesses, casinos, and nail salons. I'm really into neon signs.    I also love quiz! Fun night on the main floor of Lumpy's Downtown. Saw some new faces. I felt like my voice sounded particularly resonant.    Super Tramp and Lady and the Tramps battled head to head most of the night, but I knew all along Just the Tip would end up

Breathing Room
QuizGentleman Bryton

Back to Lumpy's on a regular night. We can all take a deep breath after the Disney Quiz. We finally have some elbow room!    Time to try something new and break up the Guesstapo to see who the real MVP of that team is. All the Guesstapers pitted against each other in a one-on-one-on-one-one(ish) battle, with newcomers Turtle Power joining in a bit late.    The music round was a tough one for all of you. If the Guesstapo had been playing together they'd have scored 11, respectable but certainly not dominant. The Brofessor got the high with 10 points and ran away with the quiz

I don't even have words.  But I have to, so I guess I'll see what I conjure up. I can't believe the crowd that came out to Lumpy's Downtown. I knew Disney was popular, especially here in the great state of Utah, but I had no idea it was THIS popular. We had twice the turnout of the Star Wars quiz, and I thought that one was extreme! 51 teams! We were crammed in there like a Tokyo subway car.    I guess I shouldn't be surprised. When I went to the [trademarked toy building brick] store to buy some Disney minifigures they had a sign saying that they were limited to 18 per person. I love those minifigures but I get so sad when I open up a pack

Hey hey we're back in the basement! It was nice down there, especially when the AC kicked on. Not sure where we'll be for the Disney Quiz but I wanted to mention it right up front to remind you to either come check it out, or avoid Lumpy's next week if Disney ain't your thing! It's gonna be a great time though.  Poor Laura, I feel bad for encouraging her to shout out the answers considering her recent injury. It sounds really lousy. I just like to roast quizzers whenever I can. I don't know Esther or we could have given her a nice birthday roast. Although it wasn't even her real birthday.    Love that the spelling bee drew more applause than
