Food! Beer!... Conspiracies!?
Amoslee

Kicking off tonight's festivities was a change from our normal program, rather than explore recent events we got a round involving clothing, although I personally prefer when the clothes fall off we got to go over clothing that went on people. New teams joined the race to the top of geek mountain this week with single word teams like NACHOOOOOO!, SWEET, and DUDE. I'd ask for more complex names but that usually caused some of the most controversial and morally questionable names so I'll enjoy the simple pleasures while they last. Tonight's visual round was on cooking show hosts and the shows in which they cause my mouth to water! I was seriously starving after going over those answers

So Much Syria!
Amoslee

Tonight we were joined by many new teams at Transplants Brewing Company! Among them was stand out "THEFIGHTINGMONGOOSES", why not Mongeese? Not one but TWO references to the United Airlines debacle, you guys are so damn topical! After a refreshing round on States we had an exciting, if not confounding, round on covers and parodies, my personal favorite was the use of Community's parody of a Black Eyed Peas song... SIX SEASONS AND A MOVIE! After an informative round of Casablanca or Battlefield Earth, "THE JUST US LEAGUE" was holding a strong lead after using their Joker in Round 2. But sadly that lead fell as we ran through rounds on Syria and word fonts that were not Comic Sans, why

Paul Rudd Serenades Our Hearts
Amoslee

This week's quizzing was chock full of complex question, sexy Paul Rudd jamming, and incorrect tie breaking rounds. After 3 rounds of hardcore wordplay and 2 chances for 16 points in a round it looked like the majority of teams had utilized their Jokers in attempt to dominate, some a futile attempt but an attempt nonetheless, and for most it seemed to work with "Michael Brown Should Have Drunk Pepsi" leading the night at our recap point. One of our teams thought it was a great idea to write their team name in either Arabic or random doodles and forced us to just write "Arabic" as their team name, Tom and I appreciated that greatly. "All Our Friends Ditched Us" lived up to their name

Dogs, Bettle Guise, and A Cappella
Amoslee

Quizmastering is really cutting in to my dog petting time but I soldier on. Tonight was a great whirlwind of tongue twisters and A Cappella songs from Pentatonix. I learned that I am not fluent in Hawaiian as well as Spanish and that "Betelguese" in fact sounds like Beetlejuice, hence the name of the round! A high turn out at Transplants as we heal from the departure of our former quizmaster Kelli. "Dyslexics in a bra" took my heart tonight when it came to team names as I am a complete sucker for word play. "Kristen (Myself)" was a strong contender despite being alone and having to leave half way through. But in the end it was a classic tie-breaking round that gave "Shh... You're so pretty

Farewell my Quizzers!
Kelli

Could not have asked for a better send off from Transplants Brewery and my quizzers, most of which have been coming since I was a wee, green QM back in August! There were laughs, a little shine in my eye since I refuse to cry, cake, and a bottle of wine that I will be consuming with my fantastic scorekeeper, Lee, this very evening! Quick recap: everyone is familiar with their pop songs, even if they are in the style of pop songs of yore; odds were in the favor of those teams I saw rock/paper/scissoring for the Au/Ag round, eating placenta is just gross, not for me thanks; and it seemed like overall we had some consistently high scoring rounds. Thus my time as QM for Transplants

I have the BEST Russian accent.
Kelli

Pretty damn decent turn out last night at Transplants Brewing in Palmdale! We ended up with 15 teams and I'm super happy a few friends from my softball team came out to quiz it up! By far my favorite round was Chewbacca taking on some pop classics. Most of them sounded better than the original version for sure and I'm thinkin he looks more authentic than some :) Though HOW some peeps did not know who Psy was I do not know. I also really liked the double down round 7 and I know there was a little frustration there when we went over the creators. Anywho, capping out at first place we had team "Retromingents," who placed top 3 last time they graced us with

We had some pretty entertaining names last night!
Kelli

Another Wednesday gone another quiz in the bank! We rounded out the night with 17 teams that were pretty chill :) Almost everyone got a perfect score for round one--recently in stuff. Round 2 no one was perfect but close! Round 3's example question was perfect! Many a laugh as everyone pictured the cast of The Fast and the Furious as Furries. Round 4: what the fuck is a Kangol? Round 5 half the teams were perfect, the other half just skip over the creds to the next episode.   Walking out with first place prize after 2 failed tie-breaker questions and a scavenger hunt was "Once you go black...it's classified," leaving us with "It's Muh Birfday" taking second (Happy

I very much dislike Justin Bieber!
Kelli

Unbelievable turn out last night with a whopping 25 teams in attendance! Everyone was in good spirits and I particulary enjoyed the round with lines from film run through google translator :) Our quiz goers will need to bone up on their artist knowledge but otherwise everyone did very well! We ended the evening with a tie for first and a tie for third. After some tie-breaker questioning, The Just US League ended up on top, with The USA Drinking Team following close behind, and snatching third was a new team Quigon's Misguided Padawans. Looking forward to next weeks quizzery and our prize winners :)

Terms of Enrampagement
Kelli

Busy and fantastic night at Transplants Brewing! We had 19 teams that had a great time, as evidenced by the compliments Mr. Lee and I received after which is always heart warming for us! Pretty solid rounds for most teams, even though I had some pronunciation issues on a couple questions. But hey, I love the saying "never mock someone for mispronunciation for that means they have only encountered the word through reading it." So bam.  Hilarity ensued immediately after reading our round 4 title on crotch rot     >__< I feel like all the California questions were huge gimmes and I was going to have to figuratively bitch slap someone for missing one :) Rounding

Sniffing hops before bedtime also makes you sleepy!
Kelli

Great turn out--18 teams in attendance! Quite a few new(ish) faces it looked like, too. I received many compliments on the music, which is totally not my selections but the staff at Transplants Brewing so I gave cred where it was due.    Quick recap: Round 1 & 2-Most are well verse on the Americas and everyone knows their pop songs! 3- we were 50/50 on knowing when people were alive 4-All I could think was "Or you'll set my country music award on fire?" 5-Super happy everyone knew the movie The Lost Boys! We ended the night with a tie for 3rd and a tie for 1st. After tie-breaker questions we had "Those Jerks" in 3rd,

I'm Flippin Burgers You At Kinko's Straight Flippin Copies
Kelli

Overall everyone did very well for this quiz! We had 14 teams in attendance but, more importantly, we had 4 dogs there as well! And while no one was very familiar with David Mamet plays, they sure did know their Geico commercials (they DEFINITELY should have kept Kelsey Grammer as the voice). Round 8 and the use of the joker was really the game changer last night. "Those Jerks" ended up in first with 80 points! Taking second was "Lab Rats is a boring name but everytime we change it we lose." And a three way tie between "The USA Drinking Team," "I shout out answers," and "Green Bowl Massacre" ended with a tie-breaking point going to I shout out answers.   See

No one knows who Mary J. Blige is!
Kelli

I feel like there were a few questions I just could NOT wrap my tongue around! I.e. our sumo wrestler Kisenosato Yutaka or the tongue twister "Tweetle beetles battle with paddles in a puddle." And of course those questions were ones people asked to repeat -_- What we learned last night: everyone needs a refresher on wicked witches (Jennifer Hudsen and Mary J. Blige are 2 different people), everyone definitely knows their football players, and an engineering friend messed up infrared radiation (?! Love you, Nestor!) Decent turn out with 15 teams! Taking 3rd after two tie-breaker questions was "This Day in History: Left Shark," 2nd went to "Those Jerks," and our first

Who's got the Proust knowledge?
Kelli

Started out looking like a slow night with only about 4 teams around 6:40 and then BAM we ended up with twenty teams! Rounds 1-3 were pretty straightforward and went well. I always like the acrostic universe audio rounds :) and I was shocked by how many teams missed a question on what Rogue One was about...(wtf?) I think rounds 4-6 were a little more challenging, especially our round on all things Marcel Proust LOL. A little surprising that people didn't remember the TV shows from round 7, even just by listening to the voices! Our random knowledge round was pretty well scattered and a solid round.   No ties last night! Taking first was "Alternate Facts" (...liars!),

We're Gettin Political
Kelli

Very enjoyable evening at Transplants Brewing in Palmdale! We had a total of 17 teams in attendance. Everyone knew their Israel stuff last night and I LOVE it when everyone sings along with the audio round songs during our round recaps-warms my heart <3  I got a huge kick out of round 3-our round of identifying the person being asked the given three questions. Being a big Archer fan, I was dying to yell out Aisha Tyler :) A newer team grabbed first this week! The "Just US Team" took a little victory dance that cracked me up. Scooping up second was "Fat Slow Losers"-don't talk yourselves up guys! (just kidding, mostly) And third place came down to a tie-breaker!

Whip out my volcano knowledge.
Kelli

Awesome group and turn out last night! We had 20 teams in attendance and a packed house :) Round one was aptly named as people heard the answers that in retrospect were freaking obvious, but most did terrible for our round on dangerous volcano locations. First, listen to the directions people! It said COUNTRY, not volcano name -_- I did enjoy one quizzers response to "It was Nick Jonas guys, not Joe." "Aren't they the friggin same?!" Out of our 20 teams, third place went to "Yes you may push in my stool" after a couple tie-breaker questions, second went to "Rising Sun," and first place went to "The USA Drinking Team." (USA! USA! USA!) Looking forward

Gladiator love!
Kelli

Good to be back after Mr. Lee sub for me last week! Though, I thoroughly enjoyed the Florida beach in the interim. We had 15 fabulous teams come out to Transplants last night and I think everyone enjoyed the questions this week after I heard some groans about last week's quiz :) The team names were FANTASTIC this week and I got some laughs from them. Taking first we had "No step on Snek," which apparently was a sign at an anti-Trump gathering (I think we can all approve no step on snek!). We had an interesting tie breaker in the end for 2nd and 3rd place. We had to eliminate a third team from the tie through our tie-breaker questions and were left with two remaining. For our second
