Alice in Krauss
Drew Wayner

This was the night of tip of the tongue... Everything was just out of reach and that's just how those dastardly fiends at Geeks like it! Alice Cooper, turned into Alice in Chains... close but no godfather of shock rock! Next time I play man in the box, I hope some team guesses... um, uh, Alice in Hannigan? Dan Aykroyd turned into the "fat face liar guy", which turned into... "Glenn Beck?" That guys plays a whole different kind of blues, brother! Christian Bale even turned into Ben Aphlabet... nice attempt, but not even a Joss Whedon rewrite could save that calamatastrophe!! Congrats to the new teams that joined us tonight! We were a hair light

Bus Talk

I drop this stick, and they pick your friend here up with a sponge! Are you ready to die, friend? Harry: F*** you! Howard: Oh! In

The Company Store called
Drew Wayner

...and they're running out of you! (leaves computer on a high note) Excuse me, I meant to say, they are thrilled to have so many new teams jump on the Geek train last night. At the Company Store, you will always be in great company. But with great company comes great quiz. Here are some of the highlights and low lights (ALL OF THE LIGHTS!) from tonight's paper and pencil parade. Tonight we learned that the real super heroes in Metropolis are the fine journalists at the Daily Planet. Superman ain't got nothing on a newspaper that has to create a daily source of news from THE ENTIRE PLANET. That's insanity! Superman can turn back time, but Jimmy Olsen is getting

Captain Hammered
Drew Wayner

Not only is Captain Hammered an amazing Halloween costume idea, its also what happened to your ear holes tonight. Far too many of you have not been keeping up with your Dr. Horrible knowledge. For the visual round I was getting things like "The guy from Firefly" or worse yet "Castle"... gross! With another writer's strike looming we need to be prepared for the second coming of the Hammer and the reemergence of Felicia Day.  Who I assume has been freeze rayed for the last 8 or so years. I know what you are saying, "that's not true Drew, that's false Drew. Felicia Day has been on the new season of Mystery Science Theater!" Well you proved me wrong stream of conscious

Geek's Company
Drew Wayner

Come and knock on our door... (Come and knock on our door)We've been waiting for you.... (We've been waiting for you)Where the questions are theirs and hers and his, Geek's company too!Tonight was my first time hosting at The Company Store and although there were some hijinks and playful 80's innuendo, I feel like it was a perfect fit. I am the John Ritter to your collective Somers and DeWitt. Oh the adventures we'll have! My favorite part of the company store: either the green chile in the queso or the cornerless tables like they were plucked from the Battlestar Galactica. My favorite part of tonight's quiz: either the

Single-Player Combat
Lady Fishstick

The Company Store turned into a war of the independent causes, as 3 of our 4 teams chose to go it alone – even if they knew each other. Neck-and-neck the entire game were the dueling father and son, Uare (Reece) and Me (Orlando). Orlando pulled ahead to win second prize, leaving Dad in the dust.   Papi, another single player and a newcomer Geek, held his own, proving in Round 3 that he knew more than any team about the crazy lives of Mel Gibson and Steven Seagal.   And our champions of the night, North Korea’s 1st Target, demonstrated safety in numbers with an

This Quiz is for the 90's Kids
Megan

Pro quizzers in White Center got wind that a cool new quiz was in town, and they are bound and determined to push out the Rookies who are just there to drink. Tonight the top three teams intimidated the amateurs into submission showing that if you can’t name your Spice Girls in alphabetical order, you don’t belong at their quiz. These top teams, Unhappy Gilmore, Baby Bok Chois, and Burn Away the Mange, also all seemed to be Space Jam experts and like true 90’s kids, could probably sing along with every word to Ace of Base’s “Don’t Turn Around.”  These 90’s kids can barely remember life before

I am just not interested in your balls
Megan

Tonight was the NCAA title game between Gonzaga and North Carolina. As we are in Washington state, many of our regulars were more interested in this basketball game than they were in my quiz. Tonight was also the first Mariners game of the season. This was an away game, but The Company Store is located in Seattle, so Mariners fans were more interested in their dang baseball game than they were in The Company Store’s puffy tacos. I just don’t understand being more interested in balls than tacos. Speaking of so many different balls, tonight’s quizzers were barely able to pay attention by the end of round 8 when I asked “BESIDES BASKETBALL…” and they

The B Team Definitely Didn't Come to Play
Megan

After weeks of constant harassment (not of the sexual nature), a coworker of mine finally came out to my quiz. I told her that last week there were only two teams so she’d have an easy time winning if she brought some friends. Tonight all the quizzers must have come out of hiding because HOLY SHIT was it packed in The Company Store. Thank goodness I got there early to get some queso (amazing) and beer, because otherwise I’d be SOL and have to wait like everybody else. 7 teams came out tonight which is a record for this young quiz. My darling coworker teamed up with my lovely boyfriend to create B Team, the worst team I’ve ever had

Birthday Wishes
Megan

Tonight I was lucky enough to crash a birthday party with my quiz, granting birthday wishes at every opportunity. Team Birthday Girl not only won a bonus beverage, they also came in first! Team Bull seemed more than happy to see them win after some serious trash talking. Team Birthday Girl started the evening by complaining that these questions were all for young people. I guess that’s what you do when you get older. You start blaming the millennials. I wonder when I’ll be old enough to hate the millennials. I think I am a millennial…anyways, they stopped complaining once they realized they were winning and that

I'd Rather Be Paragliding
Megan

Tonight was the third quiz at the Company Store and I have successfully established a following. Three regular teams just can’t get enough of my quiz. Normally I’d probably be excited about this, but tonight I only saw them as inconveniences. You see, for the past four days, I’ve spent every spare moment I have playing the new Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. My first thought when I clocked out from work this evening was “Awww Yissss time to kill some Guardians!” but then I remembered I had to host tonight’s quiz and I was immediately angered that I would not get my Zelda fix tonight. So while The Goo Tang Clan was kicking ass

Queremos Mas Futbol!
Megan

In most of the quizzes I’ve been to, sports questions have often struck terror into the hearts of quizzers. Tonight’s fearless quizzers, however devoured any and all sports questions, of which there were many. Sounders FC were major futbol fans, but apparently not really big futbol americano fans. If they were, they might not have come in last. They begged for more soccer questions, claiming that people do, in fact, watch soccer. Last I checked, this was America. How Many Licks were unintimidated by the sports questions, but lost a fair amount of confidence in themselves during round 2. Apparently these songs were too “hip”

Back 2 Hell 2: Return 2 Hell
Megan

I started my day with an ominous feeling. Something bad was going to happen. My boyfriend this morning was acting stupidly optimistic. He knew that I would have a great first quiz at The Company Store. We were both right. There was a major accident on I-5 this afternoon followed by a snowy thunderstorm (complete with lightening and cars sliding off hills) which turned Seattle into a potential death-trap. Knowing I would soon be trapped in this snowpocalypse Hell, I snuck out of work early. Well, sneaking isn’t really accurate, since my boss did say, very reassuringly, “you’re never going to make it” before allowing me to leave 30 minutes early. It took
