Round Seven? Already legal in Nevada
Devin

Okay, that was a pretty exciting end, right? All three prize-winning teams came in with the joker in round eight for their win, and really if any of the next three teams had saved their joker for the last round, they would have taken third place. Buuuuut that’s not how it played out, so… So. Sometimes, there are hints in the question, subtly (or not so subtly) guiding you towards the correct answer. It might be easy to miss them. It might not. But, really… If the entire round is about Dallas, I promise you- none of the answers are going to be about Austin. Seriously. Trust me on this. When they say they fry a lot of foods at the Texas State Fair…

It 'tis, it 'tis a glorious thing to be a Quiz Master....
Devin

It’s Tuesday night. It’s Pizza Rock. We’ve got a full tank of gas, a half pack of cigarettes, it’s dark, and we’re wearing sunglasses. Hit it. John Wilkes Booth was actually an actor- I guess that would probably explain why he had a memorable phrase to shout out when he (spoiler alert!) shot Lincoln. Plan ahead, people. If you’re going to do something that may be historically memorable, have a cool saying for it. Don’t make the same mistake as Pancho Villa, who (reportedly) died after he said “Don't let it end like this. Tell them I said something.” Don’t trust biographers. They’re unimaginative at best and jerks

I mean it
Devin

I mean, I know I talk a lot, folks. But it’s always important. Okay, usually important. Occasionally important. Okay, it’s important when there’s instructions for the round. I mean it, yo. You need to pay attention to those instructions. Because I’ll be honest, this is not the first time I’ve had teams give me an answer sheet full of accurate but unneeded information. Yeah, you’re technically correct, but, for once, that’s not the best type of correct. You need to give me the answers I ask for. Okay? Okay. So, where were we? Right. Plenty of cities anagrammed today. (Is that a verb? Apparently!) None from our immediate

Star Wars at Pizza Rock
Steve

Before special editions and Clone Wars and even someone sticking their hand up Hayden Christensen’s ass attempting to shake the life out of his soulless body, there was the Emperor’s black slug. What, you have never noticed the black slug? I envy you. More on that farther down. Geeks Who Drink in Las Vegas brought you another themed quiz and I must say we nailed it once again. Let The Wookie Win: A Star Wars Quiz showed you the full power of our geeky station of power. None of you took advantage of the quiz title though. Someone could have walked in dressed as a proper Wookie and taken down the whole quiz, and who would we be to argue, they rip arms

Holy dang, you guys came out tonight. 18 teams! That’s our best turnout, so not bad for a random April Tuesday, right? Geez, keep this up, you guys, and I’ll start to think you’re enjoying the quiz or something. Remember- Let The Wookiee Win, our Star Wars theme quiz, is at Pizza Rock next May 4th! It’ll be awesome!

Nothing in life is certain, except for- well, every Tuesday, right? Let The Wookie Win! May 4th, 7 PM, we’re going to a galaxy far, far away, and also simultaneously in Pizza Rock. It’s gonna be awesome. Hey, let’s get to the quiz. The relevant Onion article. No mention of Mel Gibson. I don’t know why 8-bit covers are so much fun. Probably because of eternal nostalgia mixed with the fun of new things. I love this

Taking this blog by the reins
Devin

Now, I love all my quizzers. I hope you all know that. You’re like my children- and least that’s the excuse I use when I justify how many Dad Jokes I make you all listen to each week. And why you never call. It’s okay, it’s okay, it’s just that your mother and I worry about you. Wait, where was I? Right. I love all my quizzers. But, see, when I know there’s an answer you should know better about? Well, sometimes I just have to make mention of it. And, I mean, when it’s a team who’s been around for a while, maybe that deserves a little teasing… But I tease with love. Hey! Let The Wookie Win: A Star Wars Quiz! This

Wait, what month is it?
Devin

Hey, happy April! At least I hope your April has started out well. I mean, April is always a little rough to start off, what with having the worst excuse for a holiday at the beginning. And in the desert, it’s often the first month of our seven months of summer, so I dread it a little bit. It’s a rough month for me. But, hey, first quiz of the month, right? It’s a new week, a new chance to win! And, hey, we saw some pretty close results here. But we’ll get to that… Speaking of the first month, if you get the email about the quiz, you may have noticed there was a note about how “It’s March already and…” Whelp. And if you

Dino-MIGHT! (Have been outside)
Devin

Look. This ain’t your quizmaster’s first rodeo, am I right? I’ve been around a little bit. I like to think I know what’s going on. But none of that… None of that really prepares you to look out and see a T. Rex on the patio at Pizza Rock. Yeah. It was a pretty weird experience. *takes a drag from a pretzel rod like it's a cigarette* I’ve seen some shit, man. Anyway, what was I going to talk about? Oh! Hey! Quiz! I mean, I guess the T Rex deserves to be out and celebrate. Congrats on winning the Monopoly token competition, buddy!

Hey now
Devin

Now, I’m no a fancy city lawyer, I’m just a simple quizmaster with some simple country wisdom. Where I come from, I reckon there’s been a few three times when a team has found that their clever team name has been taken by another. Now such a situation is never a fine one, but I’m just a neutral arbitrator and can’t decide who gets to hold what names. Such questions, in my experience, just have to be settled in th- Oh, come on, I can’t even say “death match” before I get told no? Ugggh. Fine. Do you ever think the Jolly Green Giant feels bad that his sidekick is called cuter than him? Like they’re all, “Oh,

Man, I was all ready to start working on this blog post and talk about the quiz and stuff, and then “Dear Future Husband” started playing, and ugggh. That song is the worst. It’s unrelated to anything tonight, but seriously, that song. Terrible. Anyway, where was I? Hey! Today was Pi Day! I hope you all celebrated with a pizza. Because, I mean, pizza pi? Right? And you were at Pizza Rock. They’ve got good pizza. I hope you all know that by now. Okay, right. Quiz. Wait, a Mudslide is a middle-ager drink? They’re delicious! Kahlua and Bailey’s! Look, I’m a huge fan of Bailey’s in basically anything. Also, I thought

March comes in like a deathmatch
Devin

No, but really, I’m still not allowed to run deathmatches to break ties? What happened? I thought this was America, dammit! Ties were the cool thing today- we had ties for first, fourth, sixth, and eighth place. In fact, only one team wasn’t tied with another team at the end of the day. Weird, right? I mean, Brigham Young was definitely overselling Salt Lake City there. (I’m still convinced it was settled with the thought of “Oh, we’re finally out of those damn mountains, we’re stopping here.) But dang if I don’t love the views around Salt Lake

Okay, fine. Everyone was allowed to leave. Your quizmaster does not have authorization to put teams in the Thunderdome. Geeks Who Drink does not host a quiz in Bartertown. Yet. Okay. So. Where was I? Oh, right, quiz! What’d you guys think about that first round of questions? I thought it rocked. Eh? Eh? Because it was about geology? Okay, fine. (My first semester at college, I signed up for a geology class that was at 8 am. That was a mistake. Your quizmaster is not a morning person.) Do you know how many people attended the first heavy metal concert in Antarctica? Only about 120 people. It was pretty chill. Sorry, your

Love conquers all- except pub quiz. That takes answers.
Devin

Hey, Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you spend some time with someone you love, even if that’s just yourself. And I hope you’re hyped for discount candy tomorrow! Hit the stores early, that stuff is gonna clear out fast. I don’t know if anyone noticed it, but I skipped songs from playing early in the evening- that was because I knew it was one of the audio round clips, and didn’t want to give it away too early. The song was Brimful of Asha, which is just an awesome song in general, and is a tribute to Asha Bhosie, an Indian singer who performed more than 12,000 songs for Indian films.
