There Are Strange Things Done in the Quiz-night Sun, by the Quizzers Who Moil for Gold
Luke

Last night, mother nature proved a harsh mistress, but, hey, at least she blew all of us.  Now, where’s my steak?! Round One’s answers all had only the letters from “Valentines” in them.  Ironically, the number of letters from Valentines that I have is zero, which can’t be spelled using that criteria.  Spooky!  Round Two had songs all about our favorite body part- butts!  Synonym Toast Crunch buttressed up against a perfect, with 15 points…so close.  Round Three was a 50/50 round on locomotion, which was also the name of my Tejano/Dubstep fusion band.  Requiem for a Tuesday must

You're Teeming Up on Me
Luke

You guys….19 teams!  It’s official, you can stop telling your friends about quiz.  Any more and we’re definitely going to violate fire code.  While cackling madly as we all die in a tangled, boiling mass of a deadly fireball sounds like a great story for the grandkids, I wouldn’t be around to even tell it….or have grandkids.  Nah, honestly, it’s great having so many teams throwing down at quiz every week.  I wouldn’t trade what I do for the world.  Maybe two worlds.  But it’d have to be a pretty sweet set of worlds. Let’s recap!  Round One, every answer had “grand”

The Quiz Recap tastes like Quiz Recap!
Luke

Quizzards!  Quizheads!  Quiz Junkies!  People Formerly Known as Quizzers!  Quizinites!  Quizarians!  Quizlians!  Quizkins!  I could keep going, but that would make for a pretty repetitive, if not a little entertaining, recap.  So I’ll just end it there, Your Quizliness, and commence with the ‘cappin. Round One was all about disturbing fates of some YA novel characters.  This was a consistently high-scoring round across the board, with half-a-dozen perfects, to boot!  It just goes to show that memories of beloved (or, not-so-) characters meeting gruesome and unexpected ends can last a lifetime.  I think I saw a

Fresh Meat Cake! No, Wait, Fresh Meat TAKES the Cake
Luke

Believe it or not, I’m not always able to formulate a good idea for an intro to these recaps.  This is one of those times.  Round One was about recent stuff.  Requiem for a Tuesday came out of the gate strong with a perfect 8 points on this round.  Speaking of coming, Round Two told us a lovely story through song titles about a night that went really well for at least two folks.  No perfects, here, but Synonym Toast Crunch got damn close with 15, with only one incorrect artist.  An ear for music AND part of a complete breakfast?! What more could you want?  Round Three, “Willie, Matt, or a Cow?”,

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
