The Almighty IKEA Coffe Table
Luke

Hey everybody! We had an awesome quiz yesterday! It was actually WAY harder than I thought it would be, with a 1st place score of 49 points. Brutal. Our first round was actually super well made! I gave teams the plots of popular movies, but with a bunch of characters mixed up. Gave us some awesome mental images of Andy Dwyer and Riddick teaming up to save the world in Guardians of the Galaxy.   Final scores were SUPER CLOSE. 3rd, 2nd, and 1st place were all separated by 1 point! Special mention goes to High Ho Silver

OMG so much DRAMA
Luke

Okay, so maybe only a little bit of drama… Last night, teams had to tell me whether or not I was describing the plot of a soap opera or an actual opera. It was one of the better round we had that night, even though it was like super difficult and no one knew what was going on.   Speaking of not knowing anything, our winner this time were #Octothorpe Pound Sign  or  ###. They ended up beating the serving staff by about 7 points. This was a pretty darn tough quiz, especially

Henrik Ibsen has MAD chops
Luke

Just wanted to start this one out with everybody's favorite Norwegian dude: Henrik Ibsen. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henrik_Ibsen#/media/File:Henrik_Ibsen_by_Gustav_Borgen_NFB-19775.jpg Those are some badass ”burns” as the kids probably say these days. I needed to look up some info on Henrik’s plays so I could pretend that I’m cultured for the quiz, and I was pleasantly surprised by the prowess of this

More Monday than usual
Luke

Hey Everybody! Quizmaster Luke here. This particular Monday quiz was full of way more concentrated Monday energy than normal. It was just one of those days where nothing went quite right. I just started working a real job in downtown, and man, I just made myself look like an idiot (more than usual). I spent like 20 minutes follow instructions on a website to find this stupid button. The instructions were out of date, so I couldn’t find this dumb little dropdown box. Then a coworker saw me struggling and told me that they got rid of the drop down box and the option I was looking for was just right in front of me. Now I feel like a real tech support customer.

Africa is not a country
Luke

Hey everybody, Quizmaster Luke here. We had an awesome quiz tonight! I’d give a Luke Pelletier Difficulty Rating™ of medium-hard. And man was it a close match. A few teams started off well with some good joker usage in the second round, but ended up falling in the last round. The People Person’s Pub Quiz People ended up being able to keep their first place score throughout the entire night (but only by 2 points), and second place got jumbled in the last round and went to Here for the Beer.

There is no Space Jam news at this time.
Luke

Hey everybody, quizmaster Luke here! We had an awesome quiz last night with a pretty turnout as well. Last week the most devoted not-sports-fans showed up to partake in quizzing (I think the NAACP finals were on or something), but this week, all of our regular teams were back to fight for the glory of having their name mentioned in this blog RIGHT NOW.   The winning team ended up being Technical Difficulties with a landslide victory of 88 points, which makes

Wonder Woman's Invisible Jane Eyre-plane
Luke

Hey everybody, Quizmaster Luke here.   We had an awesome quiz last night! We moved back downstairs to our original home, The Lounge, and even though there was a big sports thing going on, we still got a pretty good turn out! It became especially interesting in the end because for the second week in a row, we had to go into TRIPLE TIE-BREAKER DELUXE ROUND. Scores ended up being very close. 3rd place was once again claimed by bronze medal enthusiasts, Indecision? More like Win-decision. But 1st place ended up being a

Quizmaster? More like Sassmaster
Luke

Man! This was probably one of the hardest and best quizzes I’ve ever hosted or played. We were in a new location, Top Golf’s classy ♫ Signature Room ♫ ooo la-la. It was super nice and will probably be located there from now on. We also had a great turnout, with eight teams showing up tonight! But like I said, this was a tough quiz. Teams would do very well on one round and then immediately lose their edge by throwing away the next round. There was no single dominant team. This led to our epic Triple Sudden Death Tie-Breaker

The Canniest Valley
Luke

Hey guys, Quizmaster Luke here. We had a pretty interesting quiz last night. The difficulty curve was more like a difficulty cliff. Everything was alright until the Igor Stravinsky attacked. Round 6 was a round on everybody’s favorite Russian composer, Igor Stravinsky (get out of here Alexander Borodin fans). The only teams to break the 3 point barrier ended up being our 1st and 2nd place winners, namely Natalie’s Narwhals and We’re Gonna Lose.   And I’m glad to welcome back It’s Quizness

The Streak has been Broken
Luke

Oh how the mighty have fallen. Our most consistent team, The Quizengamot, has finally not earned a top in the top three. More specifically, they were one point behind The D-U-Hi’s by the end of the night. The Quizengamot have been here every week since we started, and this is the first time they have not earned third place. Maybe I shouldn’t have told them they lost it by one point, that must have stung a bit.   We had an

Detective Yoplait is on the Case
Luke

Hey everybody, quizmaster Luke here. We had an awesome, particularly difficult quiz tonight. For round 3, we upgraded our token sports-question-of-the-week into a full-blown round, where teams had to name the top 8 MLB teams in two and a half minutes. We also did some experimenting with the bonus round this time. I’ve been trying to keep it fair and hand out bonuses prizes randomly between teams that get the question right, but I decided to go for the lightning round-style bonus questions this time around, and it looked like people had a lot more fun that way! I think we will be sticking to that style from now on.

Bork Bork Bork (Cant Wake Up)
Luke

Hey everybody, quizmaster Luke here. We had an awesome quiz last night, including what is now definitely my favorite audio round of all time. The Muppet’s Swedish Chef graced us with his covers of a bunch of famous songs, including that Evanescence song that surprisingly isn’t titled Wake Me Up Inside. I’ve had “Bork, Bork, Bork” stuck in my head since Friday when I was given the quiz, and now I’m glad you can all share that with me. I think I’ll make it my ringtone or something.   We also had some special guests this time around! 10 Barrel Brewing was kind

The best way is usually the fairway
Luke

Hey everybody, quizmaster Luke here. Today we celebrated our first quiz at Top Golf with a particularly difficult quiz! I made sure to round up all my friends (and even my parents) to come tonight because opening nights are usually a bit slow, but boy was I wrong! We had a total of 10 teams participating and almost filled the entire downstair lounge area.   Like I said, this quiz was pretty tough. Our music round was all about annoying songs, where we learned that Blue (abadee abadye) was not written by the Blue Man Group, and that “stanky leg” song is actually called Watch Me. Who knew?
