Addendum to Rule #1
Colette

  I know I always repeat Rule #1 each week: Do not shout out the answers, but I think I might have to make some additions to the rule! After the woman who was spelling out answers with her body a few weeks ago, this week brought us multiple teams acting out the answers with their hands and in charade style.    You Say Potato, I Say Vodka won Favorite Team Name and walked away with a My Little Pony cookie, although there were many hilarious and clever Team Names this week! Our 5 bonus question winners scored themselves a Honolulu Beerworks rally towel!    No ties this week. Just straight up winners. Kim

A Rollercoaster of Confidence
Colette

It was a relaxing and fun night at Honolulu Beerworks this Tuesday night. 19 teams joined us for quiz, or was it the El Guapo tacos that lured them in..?   It was a rollercoaster of confidence.  This week’s Quiz saw some of the highest scoring rounds and then some of the toughest rounds. And speaking of rollercoasters, the favorite round of the night had to be the theme park ride audio Round 7!   I Thought This Was Speed Dating won Scorekeeper Joe’s Favorite Team Name and walked away with a candy lei. If you found yourself one of the lucky bonus question winners, you scored yourself a pair of sweet Honolulu Beerworks

Star Wars Quiz: Costumes, Chewy Impressions and more!
Colette

The Force was strong in Honolulu for our first ever themed quiz. I thought regular quiz was a blast, but this one was out of this world!   21 teams competed for the title of Jedi Master, or Star Wars Champs of Honolulu. Teams ranged from Geeks Who Drink regulars, visitors from the mainland, passersby, and some who had never quizzed with us before.  They all had one thing in common, they were all Star Wars fanatics!   Big Mahalo to fellow QuizMaster and Scorekeeper of the evening, J9! We had so much fun gathering extra prizes, planning out our costumes, and prepping for the Quiz while watching Rogue One.  To say we were excited would be an

Let Them Go!
Colette

We kicked it off with a round on current events which most teams did pretty well on- way to go keeping up with the news! Round two may not have been everyone’s cup of tea, but Scorekeeper Joe and I were dying laughing at the terrible Karaoke versions of popular music.  Throughout the night I played Merriam Webster, giving definitions of words players didn’t really need to get the answer correct and double checking answers.  I get it, though, and was happy to do some Googling. Some of my favs included, “non-SI” and “erstwhile.”   As we entered the final round of the night, everyone’s favorite, Random Knowledge, we paused

It was the perfect date for Quiz…
Colette

It was the perfect date for Quiz…Thanks to all who joined us at our weekly pub quiz at Honolulu Beerworks! We raised over $500 for the Polio Plus Foundation through the Rotary of Diamond Head and Kaimuki! Holy Moly, our GWD Hawaii community is generous!!   31 teams came out to test their knowledge.  The night started with a fun round on states (I hope everyone got the Hawaii answer correct!) followed by a tough audio round of mashups. Our second audio round of the night was a high scoring one with clips of celebrities showing off their “Cribs.”   Five lucky, and knowledgable, people left with a Honolulu Beerworks shirt

We're in it for the Bonus Prizes
Colette

Thanks to all who joined us at our weekly pub quiz at Honolulu Beerworks!    22 teams came out to test their knowledge.  The night started with a high-scoring round on Sue's followed by an entertaining audio round of Nintendo-ized 8-Bit pop music. From there, scores varied drastically throughout the night with a round where the answers each had "IRS" in them, a before and after visual round, and everyone's favorite Random Knowledge!   Congrats to all of our Bonus Question winners- and shoutout to Honolulu Beerworks for the rad hats they gave for those prizes!! 9 Inch Males won the Babe Ruth lady prizes for hitting it out

Please Don’t Spell Out the Answer With Your Body, Ma’am!
Colette

We had a great night with 20 teams joining us for our weekly Tuesday night pub quiz! We kicked it off with a round on so-called Queens and Kings followed by an audio round that stumped many teams.  I certainly don’t blame you guys, you had to look at the extremely depressing visual round for the entire first half of the Quiz..any human would have found it hard to recall “Applause” by Lady Gaga through watery eyes. After my favorite round on ancient Rome (Hello, Classics Major), a clever audio round that also included an acrostic puzzle, and a reminder in Round 8 that spelling out the answer with your body is the same thing as shouting out the answer… we

Tuesdays at Beerworks
Colette

Tonight was full of groans of "I knew that one" as the answers were read...   Our quiz teams were entertained with rounds on geography, a harder-than-expected playlist of songs dubbed by Obama, movie musicals, and everyone’s favorite Random Knowledge!   I am amused weekly by our regular quizzers who come up with the most creative, albeit often eye-roll inducing names.  This week in Favorite Team Name awards, I had to go with the Arrested Development nod, Bob Loblaw’s Law Blog.  They are the proud new owners of a Peeps scented eraser, which they may or may not need at next week’s quiz!   There

Thank You, Mariah!
J9

Thanks to all of you who consistently pack Honolulu Beerworks every Tuesday! We now have a score keeper, the lovely Mariah! There were a lot of points up for grabs last night, and some of you truly took advantage of the opportunity to gamble. Raiders of the Lost Wages netted a whopping 94 points to secure first place. Breakfast at DJ Tiffany's scored the second highest, but was disqualified after recruiting what seemed like half the brewery to join their team, so second place went to Vodka for Breakfast and Dude, Where's My Kyle? lucked out and placed third.

Wowza!
J9

I know we all love playing quiz at Beerworks on Tuesdays (I never miss it!), but subbing this week I was definitely not expecting 29 teams! I'm so glad so many of you came to listen to me talk into a microphone for 2+ hours! Nearly everyone started out strong, but R4 and R6 were rough and definitely helped separate the winners from the not-winners (none of you are losers, you're all awesome!) Congrats to Gorsuch a Geek for having my favorite team name of the night and shout outs to St. Manti and the Traveling Catfish who placed first, unsurprisingly =), Got Milks who eked into second place by one point, and Pepper's Posse

3.14 Days until St. Paddy's Celebrations
Colette

Everyone wanted a piece of the Geeks Who Drink pie last night.  We kicked off our Pi Day and St. Paddy's day celebrations with 18 teams, many new faces and plenty of familiar ones. Highlights of the night included a high scoring Audio Round 2, an uproar about the acceptance of 1961 as the year of the Cuban Missile Crisis, and just a couple reminders that Honolulu Beerworks is celebrating St. Paddy's Day with some amazing specials... Two hours flew by and we had a tie for 3rd place between My Microwave Takes Better Selfies Than I Do and Live Free and Pi Hard (who won the prize for favorite team name of the night).  My

Fake Thom Yorke Gives Best Concert of His Life...
Colette

Last night's quiz must have been one of your favorites because all 22 teams that started finished all 8 Rounds!  It definitely was a fun one.   Early in the night, Fake Thom Yorke gave the best concert of his life at Honolulu Beerworks.  Although teams couldn't make out the lyrics from ol' mush-mouth, they caught on pretty quick to the tunes.  Our highest scoring round of the night, 7 teams scored a perfect 16 points and earned double if they jokered!  The highlight of the night for me was when the whole bar joined in singing the answers for Round 2. Egos were quickly deflated with our lowest scoring round of the night, Round 3,

Show Me Your Wits
Colette

It was a Bayou Bash at our Mardi Gras quiz! We kicked off the night with a round on recent events, with an average score of just over half correct.  What can we say, it takes the news, and my Amazon Prime orders, an extra day to reach us out here in the middle of the Pacific. Quizzers got creative with their "I have no idea" guesses after I promised beads each time they showed me their WITS. They also indulged on the delectable Honolulu Beerworks brews, crawfish mac & cheese, and the chocolate I brought along for anyone who was about to give it up for Lent.  The one thing I would highly recommend NOT giving up for Lent this year is Geeks Who

Gee Wiz that was fun!
Colette

Hawaii’s first Quiz for a Cause was a major success!  Quizzers were feeling very generous and came out in droves tonight to support Graduate Women in Science (affectionately shortened to GWIS [GEE-WIZ]).  37 teams tested their knowledge to complete for some AWESOME Honolulu Beerworks prizes and the sweet cash prize that comes with our Quiz for a Cause.   Those GWIS ladies may or may not have bribed one of those Geeks Who Drink writers to have an entire science-y round to kick off the night! Over half of the teams scored a perfect 8 on that one- their professors must be proud.   The science-y round was

Quizzin' is for Lovers!
Colette

Love was definitely in the air at Honolulu Beerworks…or was that the smell of their amazing mac & cheese? Either way, the place was packed with people who agreed that there is no better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than with fellow Geeks Who Drink! With my new title, Quizmaster Colette: Ancient Love Goddess, I kicked off my debut night with the apropos song request, “Let’s Get It On.” 16 teams fell under that love spell and joined us for the quiz- many frequent quizzers and some new faces.  Luckily the younguns who started with us left after Round 3 because I would have been very sorry to have them listen to me ask about “dildos stuck

Holy Moley!
J9

It was great to be back at Honolulu Beerworks, and boy were there a lot of teams! Luckily I had our new GWD Quizmaster (QM)-in-training, Colette, by my side and an aptly named team, Hot Ass Quizmasters, cheering us on. It was a pretty decent quiz tonight with some pretty tight scores. In first place we had the Bowling Green Massacre Survivors, in second My Couch Pulls Out But I Don't, and after a sudden death tie-breaker, Cash Money Outside pulled off third place. Sorry, No One Expects the Spanish Inquisition, maybe next time! Speaking of which, next Tuesday is Valentine's Day and Colette's solo debut as QM,
