And He Drains The Bonus From The Three Point Line
Kyle Q. Wizmaster

Well we had a pretty solid turnout last night.  That might be in part because I forgot my paperwork at home and kinda bribed my friends to drop it off.  No, I didn't give them any answers or anything.  I would think that they would have done better than what they did.    As for the quiz, well... I think it is safe to say that our usual winners were true to form last night.  Going as the Solipsistic Sisters this week they were hot right out of the gate with a stunning 34 points at the end of round 2.  No one else was even close.  That's why the real hunt was for that coveted second place spot.  There was the

Slater's Angels: Full Bottle
Kyle Q. Wizmaster

I'd watch the crap out of that movie. Basically just Mario Lopez gettin hammered with a bunch of co-eds. It'd be like all of my dreams from 1992 are coming to life!The rain was falling hard last night as the quiz commenced. Pouring from the heavens like god choked a toilet and then tried to flush it but it just wouldn't stop overflowing. I know a couple regulars had hail damage to deal with so coming in wasn't really an option. Best of luck gettin all that figured out.Once again, the start of the night looked like we me have some new champs. Nickleback To The Future was keeping up with KaBoobs question for question for the

The Cool Cats Euphoria Lead To Multiple.....
Kyle Q. Wizmaster

........I think you know where I was going with that one.Another lovely night at the Lion with some lovely folks gave us a real nice quiz everybody. Was it an even playing field do you ask? Even still not at full strength the team with the ever changing name that continues to dominate the competition did it again. Going by U4EA this week they had a 15 point lead by the end of round 3 and it only got bigger from there. What really did it for em was that 3rd round. Must be a gassy group cause they freakin aced it.The Multiple Scoregasms had a promising start but those later rounds didn't leave them much room to catch up. I mean, sure

All Quiet On The Ziggy Front
Kyle Q. Wizmaster

'Twas a somber evening yesterday as we sat down to begin the quiz. Our reigning champs , Rumspringa, were playing at half capacity and we had some serious players show up to put em in their place. I began to notice the power of the Lambda Twinsies at the end of round 2 as they freakin aced it and jokered taking them to an early lead. After round three it was mighty tight between those two.  Then by the end of round 5 the lone wolf,  I Just Blue Myself, started to make a run for it. First of all, he was playing solo which can be quite daunting, and secondly, he got more answers in round 5 than either of the other teams taking him

Well, If It Were Julie, Then It's Definitely Steven
Kyle Q. Wizmaster

Let's be honest, neither one of those two guys would you be happy to be stuck in an elevator with. I mean Mel would be all preachy and Seagal would probably be all punchy. I do think it is a shame that Mel has been given so much flack and been blacklisted for so long just because of one drunken racist rant. It's a shame he hadn't just beat his wife, then no one in Hollywood would have seemed to care. Instead we get America's sweetheart Chris Brown still doin shit when he should be unemployed and friendless.Wow...okay that got a little out of hand ("Tell is how you really feel..."). Back to the point at hand, Seagal shouldn't drive tanks. That's just a no-brainer. I mean who was

Those Slippery Sugar Monkeys Again
Kyle Q. Wizmaster

Now I know you all missed me dearly after we didn't have a quiz last week but don't worry, babies, I'm back. We should be interruption free until the next time something comes up.It is starting to look like we'll need to recruit a team to finally take down the running champs. Even when they're one person down they don't seem to lose a step. Having an extra double point round probably didn't help our other teams in their efforts to catch the Sugar Monkeys. It just gave the monkeys more fuel for their fire. The rest of the teams had their work cut out for em. That second half of the quiz was tough if you've never learned about WWII. Luckily, most

Licky Boom Boom Now Indeed, Sir!
Kyle Q. Wizmaster

Hello once again you beautiful people of Earth. We had a quiz once again at ye olde Thirsty Lion and it was a dooozy. I mean, we didn't have any rounds on Russian ballet-writes so I guess it could have been worse, but we had some real close competition. Okay maybe not with This Cake Will Take, they seem to be an unstoppable force at the moment, but between The Multiple Scoregasms and The Smashing Blumpkins. (If you're not familiar with the 'blumpkin' have your mother give it a Google and then send you a pic.)  It really wasn't that close throughout the game, I'll be honest with you. The Blumpkins did downright terrible on the music round.

Kyle Q. Wizmaster

I assure you we won't have anymore Stravinsky rounds for at least another day and a half. In the meantime, study up on your Ptolemy and Leonard Bernstein.....probably. I don't know. I don't make the rules around here.Now that quiz last night, what a doozy. I mean we had a Bearshark and A Simple Pimple (or possibly 'dimple'. Jury is still out). It was a mad house. Plus those honest trailers that really threw that one guy through a loop. Classic Missourians! Am I right?....right? Anyway aside from miss numbering a little they freakin killed it. So who am I to judge? The goddamn Quiz Master that's who!!! Eat a PIZZA once in a while!Okay,

Her's Was Actually Quite Moist
Kyle Q. Wizmaster

Boy what a turnout. I was a little nervous that we only had one team at 7:15 but then 7:20 rolled around and we had six times that. Yahoooo!Anyway the quiz itself was an interesting one. That music round had some folks really tripped up. Not Inconceivable! though. No they killed it. In fact by the time I had everyone else's rounds 1-5 added up they still had the lead after only 3. That's impressive. That news really seemed to stick with the Piccadilly Twatz cause they came at the second half hard and fast. They nailed the video round, Inconceivable!'s roughest category, and in the end managed to squeak passed for the number one spot. Good work

Turd Furgeson Rides The Pine
Kyle Q. Wizmaster

Well we had another nail biter last night.  Not for first place though.  No that seems to be getting gobbled up by Early Question Mark? or whatever their name might be week after week. It was back and forth all evening between the always solid Another Healthcare Abomination and the wise yet green newcomers Turd Ferguson Rides Again. I mean I thought Turd was gonna take it but before you know it the Abomination comes screamin passed em at the end.  I mean, sure, Turd came out strong and solid to begin with but they got a little runny and soft toward the end.  By no means should you flush Turd out of the running though.

Too Much Tequila? No Such Thing
Kyle Q. Wizmaster

Well that seemed to be the biggest takeaways from our winning teams last night. It's a shame #MerylSaysHi and Dr. Awkward didn't get the memo or they might have finished a little higher up. I've gotta say, Doc Awk was killin it all night. Every round they submitted was 8 or 7 right answers every time. Unfortunately for them though that also applied to the double point rounds. Learn some music, boys, and you'll definitely do better next time.Really though, last night could have gone to any one of those teams. They all did remarkably well in every round. I'm sure there's plenty a quiz they could have cleaned house in, but not the quiz at the

Kyle Q. Wizmaster

Well gosh damn.  This place is blowin up.  Look at us sportin a big, fat 11 team roster last night.  The whole room came to play too.  Even those ladies who thought they were gonna suck ended up doin fairly decent.  They couldn’t get up to the standard of AARP and The Big Fact Hunt, and hell they couldn’t even live up to their own team name, Probably The Lowest Score.  That’s just how the game goes I suppose, they can’t all be epidemic rounds.    As for the rest of the field, it was rare to see Trivia Newton John finish so low on the podium, but

I Kinda Like The Look Of That Bum Bag
Kyle Q. Wizmaster

Well hot damn. This quiz is blowin up. Two weeks in a row now we've had to extend our reach to the next section over. I predict a 12 team average by the end of March. And you can quote me on that....if it turns out to be true. If not, don't do that. Don't quote me. In fact, delete this post all together.Anyway, last night was a real heartbreaker, or at least it was if you were Doubledecker Eggsluts. They got out to an early lead by jokering the music round but they just weren't able to hold out til the end. It's starting to look like Dr. Awkward and T-Rex Was On The Crapper are the teams to beat. They've consistently been in the

Mighty Ducks From The Crypt
Kyle Q. Wizmaster

Do you ever get irrationally mad at something for reasons you can't explain? Like for me, anytime I see that Jennifer Garner commercial where she's talkin about her dad and capitol one credit cards or whatever it makes me cringe so hard I wanna whip a shoe through the TV. Who saw that ad and thought, "oh yeah, that'll work just fine." No!  You're wrong! It is awful and you should feel awful for making it!!Anyway, it was a lovely quiz last night. Good, well rounded teams, I didn't spill my beer, and I even got a killer parking spot. I mean, I don't mean to brag or anything but...it was right out front. Cherry Creek is starting to recognize how big of a deal I am and is responding

I've Got A Bad Habit For Nuns
Kyle Q. Wizmaster

Last night was easily the closest match we've had at the Thirsty Lion. I mean....sure we've only had 3 or 4 quizzes so far....but still....you see what I'm gettin at. Those know-it-alls that go by the name Trivia Newton John got off to an early lead by nearly acing the audio round. From then on Dr. Awkward was playing some serious catch-up. Only by getting one more point than their rivals in round 7 were they able to take the lead that would eventually give them the game. Good work y'all. Never give up, never surrender.Don't get me wrong, the other two teams were by no means "bad", they just weren't good enough. Samsquanch

Let's All Go To The Strip Club
Kyle Q. Wizmaster

So I don’t often know why teams have to depart early, but I usually know it’s not for as good of a reason as that one team from last night.  Sometimes you’ve just gotta head out and to do some motorboatin.    Anyway, how does everyone feel about that James Brown round?  I mean, I could tell that the concept was a little difficult to understand at first, but you’re a smart crowd.  You figured it out.  I do feel like we threw you a pretty good curveball, I mean, who knew Bruno Mars could cover anyone except JB?   As for the rest of the quiz, it was pretty much a blowout for Alternative Facts.
