Tonight's Quiz Brought to You by QM Puke Connally
Luke

Good Wednesday to you, Quiz blog reader!  If your day is going anything like last night’s Quiz, then it’s definitely really awesome, full of good vibes, and has just the right amount of dick jokes peppered throughout.  Let’s recap! Round One, “Your Mom’s a Dipthong”, was a pretty approachable start to the night’s festivities with some straightforward questions and a nice theme to tie it all together.  A whole lot of teams we’re feeling this one, and multiple perfect scores abound.  Round Two featured some clips of BBC One performances of various covers, and you were tasked with telling me the song and original artist

Molto Bene, Abbiamo un Blog. Prego!
Luke

Heya, howdy folks!  This here thing is what I like to call a “bloggy-woggy-doodle” or “blog” for short.  My therapist said it’s okay to call things what I want to call them.  I just think she’s a real pling-shinger, you know what I’m saying?  In Round One we recapped the year’s events, quiz-style!  The Projectiles and Flaming Dragons are keeping those newspapers in print, and got all eight points for this one.  Round Two brought a little geographical twist to our standard audio round: the first letter of each song title on questions 1-7 spelled out a country, and question

It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Quiz-mas
Luke

Heya, Quizzers!  Welcome to the recap.  There will be a few short paragraphs, no intermission, and refreshments provided in your fridge at home.  We ask you to keep talking to a minimum and, please, no flash photography.  Also, don’t flash the photographer.  He’s struggling with a sex addiction and this is his safe place. Round One had some hot takes on some cool current event-y stuff.   Requiem for a Tuesday and Synonym Toast Crunch started strong out of the gate with perfect scores on this one.  Way to keep those journalists employed!  Round Two brought a tear to our eye (ow!) with songs performed

You're Forgetting "Away" Again!
Luke

Greetings and salutations!  This quiz stuff just keeps getting better and better…we had a beautiful night to hang out on Rikenjaks’ patio, and a really awesome group of players.  Our collective positive energy was even enough to ward off the rain despite the forecast- huzzah! It may not have rained, deer, but we still had some reindeer.  Round One was all about everyone’s favorite Yuletide ungulates.  Requiem for a Tuesday hoofed it to a perfect score on this round.  Round Two’s songs all had one-word titles and their first letters went alphabetically from I to P, which was definitely designed so the

A Tale of Two Breweries
Luke

Hey you Quizheads!  Luke here with your weekly blog.  Had so much fun that you can’t even remember what happened last night?  Have no fear!  I mean, I don’t remember either but I took some notes so let’s see. I do remember something about a brewery, oh what was it….Upset Hawk?  Forlorn Falcon?  Oh, Crying Eagle!  That’s right.  They provided some bonus swag for me to hand out.  Mighty wide of them.  It sure is nice to see our two local breweries making nice with one another.  It’s nice to see them make beer, too!  Make sure to go on the free brewery tour at Crying Eagle when you get a chance.  Round

Terrible Rotten Tomatoes Scores and How to Get Them
Luke

Welcome, one and all, to the best written blog about the Tuesday night Geeks Who Drink Quiz at Rikenjaks.  I really feel that I can say that with complete confidence!  Unlike “Antwerp”.  It can’t be that phonetic! There was a high chance of rain, so we moved the quiz inside for a change.  I enjoyed the increased intimacy of the setting, and the combination of the quiz being lousy brimming with regulars made for a pretty great night. Round One we made some tasty Answer Sandwiches.  What’s the best bread for a tasty sandwich treat?  Wheat!  (See what I did there?)  The audio Round Two had some Tonight

The Official Ranking of Thanksgiving Food Dressing/Stuffing Green Bean Casserole Everything else Turkey Because no one ever picks turkey.  Which is kind of ironic since it’s the centerpiece of the nuclear Thanksgiving.  Big Turkey really pulled a fast one on the American consumer, there.  I can just picture that meeting: SCENE: a dark, Applewood smoke-filled room, popcorn strings lining the walls, half the boardroom sleeping. MEL A. GRIS, CEO: Gentlemen!  Our turkey stock is in a serious simmer.  We need a real injection to invigorate our customer baste.

If Quiz Was Any More Fun, We'd Need Towels
Luke

What a night last night!  You quizzers had some great energy, we had one hell of a quiz to play, and the weather is just the right level of cool-but-not-too-cold-but-I-can-still-wear-my-favorite-jackets-and-sweaters, all coalescing into a damn good night to be alive.  I mean, I didn’t have a jacket because I’m a fool but you all looked equal parts cozy and dapper out there. And what of quiz?  Well, I’ll tell you!  Round One took us on a postal code-themed road trip around the States, with every answer being the two-letter code for the state hinted at in the question, AND being an appropriate response to the question…..whaaat?  Those

Round Six's Bonus was having None-of-It
Luke

We had a good night of quiz at Rikenjaks.  The weather cooperated and left us dry and cool, and a great time was had by all!  Let’s get into it. Round One featured questions with almost-too-obvious answers, which is certainly a hurdle unto itself.  Looking at the round scores, a lot of you struggle with overthinking.  I’m that way, too.  It took me longer than I’d like to admit to write these few sentences so far.  Wait, I just admitted it.  Crap.  Round Two covered some parody covers of popular songs, asking for the original song title and artist.  Double digits abound.  Nice one, quizheads.  Round Three was

Quiz Night Really Threw the Book at You
Luke

Quite literally!  This quiz was quite literary.  We all geek out about different things but this quiz was a bit of a Lit 101 nerd’s dream come true.  What scores may come?  For sooth, when it comes to children’s literature, we doth rely too heavily upon the celluloid, to our lament upon answer’s true form. We had more book-y questions than you could shake a spear at.  Round One, while certainly about filmed roles, had more than a few roles inspired by the page.  Quiztopher Walken strutted their stuff right off the bat with a perfect score for this one.  Round Two was a generally straightforward song-and-artist audio

The State Looks Down on Marquis de Sade-emy
Luke

Good day to you, faithful quizzer!  I commend you for being so awesome as to not only come to quiz on Tuesdays at Rikenjaks but to also read the blog about it afterwards.  It’s a good obsession to have!  Very validating.  “But, Luke, you don’t KNOW anyone is reading this.” you say, “How can it be validating to write words that you just assume will be read?” To that, I say “Shit, you’re right.” Nevertheless, I have a job to do, so let’s get to it.  Round One was all about stuff that not only happened but also happened recently!  Mouse Rat and The Projectiles scored

Settling for Mediocrity is Clearly Lying to Us
Luke

This is not a witty intro. Round One brought some questions about Baltimore.  We all learned what the Preakness Stakes is (a horse race) and that the Monopoly railroads actually have real meanings.  Who knew?  Well, I did.  Round Two bleated its way into everyone’s heart with an audio round based on songs by artists from Chicago.  There was more sports-related education when we all learned what was the damn deal with the freaking goats.  If you don’t remember, or are for some reason reading this without being at the quiz last night (Hi, Thomas!) then Google “Cubs Curse” and follow the Wiki-hole.  Round Three was a 50/50 about

Here is a Blog About Quiz, Written by Me
Luke

Another Tuesday in the books!  What more can I say about our weekly get-togethers that I haven’t already said?  HA!  You clearly don’t know me at all.  The answer is a lot.  Sometimes too much.  I’ll admit, as a QM I’ve got a very Michael Scott-like habit of starting sentences without really knowing where I’m going.  Usually, it works.  Sometimes, though, I say things that don’t even really make sense to me, and I’m saying it!  Kind of like this blog, too.  You may think I have a rigorous editing process (oh, get over yourself, Luke, these aren’t THAT good) but I really just kind of write

You're the Best, Around- Except When it Comes to Bonus Rounds!
Luke

Round One, we all got “Hi” together.  Well, most of us…..some of you didn’t get the memo and I got plenty of answers that didn’t start with “Hi”.  Maybe you were.  Round Two we slung some chronological cover play your way.  The scores didn’t disappoint!  Round Three, History Repeats Itself, asked if certain events in history repeated themselves, and you answered-  did history repeat itself?  Sometimes I feel like these 50/50 rounds are the most challenging despite you technically having the best chance out of any round to pull the answers out of the ether.  Round Four was on fictional butlers, you

Rockabye Baby, In the- Excuse Me, Are You Presuming My Sexuality?!
Luke

It was a real Tom and Jerry night at Quiz- Mouserat beat Thundercat!  After Thundercat tasted the sweet nectar of victory last week some new guys showed up to be all like “that sweet nectar was actually our collective urine, secretly injected into a lemon of defeat that you just squeezed over ice”.  My word, such imagery!  I like it when first-time quizzers achieve immediate greatness.  It keeps them coming back.  Not everyone is a glutton for punishment like Settling for Mediocrity, who, as their new team name suggests, have accepted their quiz-status as a team able to
