Musky Movies & Oklahoma
Stephanie

So this week’s pub quiz WAS. SO HARD!    So the first round started and the whole restaurant was in dead silence. Apparently, people in Florida aren’t well versed in knowledge about Oklahoma Although, I’m pretty sure every single person knew the Coen Brothers movie, True Grit. Round 2 surprised me because I knew most of these and couldn’t believe how many of my players didn’t. We got some “aaahhhh damnit” after hearing the answers in Round 3. How did people not get Alen Rickman with “bitten by a snake familiar”? The visual round was a little hard, but most people actually did great! I also learned a knew fact;

Recently in I Don’t Freakin’ Know…but it’s either Ridley or Russia
Stephanie

This week’s pub quiz was so freaking hard! I learned so much new stuff, it was unbelievable. Even my usual teams who ace their rounds had a hard time. Although, the One-Eyed Wonder Weasels, also known as, Billy & the Quizboys, also known as many other teams I can’t think of, showed up late they still held their own! We also had a new (visiting?) team who also plays on Thursdays in Washington! Looking for Love, or at least for Greg….gave Immaculate Contraception a run for their money. By the way, if you’ve seen Greg…maybe he’s the gun-toting bear-man???…send

Please Excuse My Aunt Sally & My Very Eager Mother
Stephanie

TONIGHT’S QUIZ WAS SO GREAT! We had so many teams that are new and showed up to make tonight’s quiz SO MUCH FUN! We had our Petty Bettys back in town after a two week hiatus and a new team that stole the show - Dumbledore’s B Team! The questions tonight gave everyone a run for their money and prizes, but all of us learned some new things - most surprisingly about our Constitution. We also learned that Immaculate Contraception likes Swedish Chef from The Muppets… Is it sad that we don’t know this stuff already? But then again, who cares? The beverages were flowing and everyone had a blast! All around a great time

May the Fourth (not) be with You
Stephanie

Sooooo….it was was my first solo show and I didn’t die! I didn’t even have any food thrown at me!! That’s partly because all of the amazing teams I have that come to my quiz who honestly helped me out and made me more comfortable than I could have done on my own so THANK YOU SO MUCH. You guys are all amazing and I can’t wait to continue hosting for you! I also want to shout out to the staff at our venue; they honestly made me feel like home and they’re the best. We were all a little shocked at the lack of Star Wars questions, but besides that most of my teams looked at me like I was crazy 85% of the time! Round 1 straight up fooled everyone into thinking

A (Few) Day(s) Late & I’m Your New Host!
Stephanie

Hey guys! So this last pub quiz was my second training night! I loved seeing all of my familiar teams, although I know the Petty Bettys were out of town and will be back this week! Even though Immaculate Contraception was taking home the gold on most quiz nights we’ve had a sudden change of events the last few weeks with them trailing some up-and-comers! This week’s quiz started out with some fairly easy rounds, but by Round 6 – we started getting a few ‘quizzical’ looks. Get it?......Quizzical? Even some of the bonus questions went unanswered by all teams! (I happen to thoroughly enjoy puns as you can see..) The Periodic

Like I totally know the answer....
Daniel

Hey what was the question again man? Cause I totally know the answer.....   We had another great night at Chicago's Pizza. How teams are using the joker is determining the outcome. The last couple of weeks have seen some intense last rounds. This week the top 3 teams where only a point apart. Yes, the competition has been very fierce. But this week the Petty Betties came through with their first win and Potant Potables pulled in second after missing a week....

Birthday Boy!
Daniel

Hello from Jacksonville!!!! We had a birthday boy at the quiz, so I had to do my Marilyn Monroe impression! Yes, I had to give out some extra points as the teams had to endure my singing voice. I also gave out some extra points to the teams that did the Tequila Dance!   But to the quiz, we had a great turn out with 7 teams fighting to the last round. Some savage use of the Joker brought Immaculate Contraception back to the winners circle with the Naughty Nurses coming in second.

Had a great time doing my first solo quiz! Of course we had some hiccups but the quiz must go on!   This week we had Potant Potables coming out on top, with Immaculate Contraception coming in second. We had a good turn out with 6 teams and a lot of fun with this weeks quiz.

Hello World! Just making sure this is working! Had a great time hosting my first Quiz. The competition for first was very close going to a tie breaker. The Sestra's came out on top after the first question. With the Potent Potables coming in second.   The weather feels great coming off the river, thank heavens the harsh Florida winter is coming to an end.

Take that difficulty level to an 11, then scale it right back down to Disney.
Heather

What a turnout on Thursday! 9 teams total showed up. AND stayed! So many had heard about Geeks Who Drink either from the GWD website, GLHF Facebook, or my posts on Reddit. It was a bunch of fun and I was also training my replacement so I was VERY lucky to have some help. I'll speak about that at the end of this blog post. But first, the quiz. Round 1 was another 3 for all round about TV shows. I enjoyed how this was structured and I think many people did, too. They cottoned to the form quickly and every team did fairly well. Not so much for Round 2 and 3, though. Apparently our teams are either 1) not depressed/emo

I got to play in the SNOW!
Heather

  Title completely irrelevant to the quiz, I just wanted everyone to know I got to throw some snowballs during my trip to Boston! SNOWBALLS!! Meanwhile, back in Jacksonville, FL it got to a measly 40ish degrees. But that's ok because we had a quiz to run! Met even MORE new people this week and had some returning favorites come out. I love Recently in stuff simply bec ause I'm always on Reddit and Reddit is basically "recently in stuff" all the time. It's great! I would do so well on Geeks Who Drinks quizzes if I wasn't the host with the most(answers!). Round 2 was very interesting this week as you had to name the songs that

Heather

  Secondly, apparently a lot of people DO dislike Coldplay.   Or at least their covers.  I rather like most of their music.   Enough rambling, onto the quiz!  What a doozy this week. We had a good number of teams come back into play and it was exciting. Except for one small detail…  This quiz was HARD!   Not all rounds were back breaking, but even my best teams floundered in some of the messier rounds. Round 1 was a bunch of fun where teams were asked to name the person or thing that is being talked about via a code name, person/group that used it and a small description. I am truly proud of these teams for

That time when round 5 was SO hard!
Heather

Welcome back to another week with Geeks Who Drink! Even more new people came out to experience our quiz. People teamed up to make it a close contest.  Thursday night's quiz was a fun one with more than a few challenging rounds. As mentioned already, our visual round 5 was incredibly difficult. Almost every team struggled with low scores in what is usually a favorite throughout the night.  Round 2 had people challenged to name the songs in history that were the number one hit on this exact date.  And round 6 was a round on Oboe's. Yea, the instrument.  Huh. Each of our teams had some strong and weak rounds. By the end it came down to who used

Pra-nancing around!
Heather

    Man what a showdown this week! We had a grip of teams that really knew what they were doing.  Very proud of them.  This week’s Geeks Who Drink quiz featured THREE double points rounds which everyone made sure to capitalize on with a joker. Neck and neck were the teams until the last couple of rounds until a winner was decided.   After naming 7 deadly sins and the song asking for forgiveness in round 2, teams were challenged to find the character that three different actors/actresses played.  A difficult round that almost every team struggled with. They also didn’t mind vocalizing how much it sucked.

The slow and the slower.
Heather

  This week at Geeks Who Drink was a fun quiz for everyone!  Quizmasters and contestants alike. Some witty questions, alliteration and awesome phonetics were a plenty in this week’s rounds. I had a blast and I believe the players did, too. Great job quiz writers!   Immaculate Contraception came back to play despite battling a cold.  And I give them a hearty thank you for doing so!  They won the game by a landslide of no shows and even mentioned Round 2 “Slooooooow Jams” being there favorite.  They did very well throughout the rounds, scoring one of the highest games I’ve

Round 3 was NOT good for hypochondriacs!
Heather

And we’re back with more Geeks Who Drink at the GLHF Game Bar at the Landing in downtown Jacksonville!   This week we met with someone who happened to be a Geeks employee based out of Colorado in town for a work conference!  Quite a coincidence as she and a couple other ladies managed to do a great job at this week’s impromptu game. Round 1’s answers all fit a certain theme that helped you answer the bonus question. The questions themselves, however, may not have fit any theme, but all the answers combined? CAPTAIN PLANET!   Ok, not really, but close! Round 2 was fun with sorta-Spanish language songs. Most
