Show Me Your Caucus, I’ll Show You Mine
JenKiper

Every great once in a while, someone makes a special impression at quiz. Sometimes, its someone I haven’t seen in a while. Occasionally, its a bunch of newbies who take to quiz like ducks to water. Last night, it was that one drunk guy who also thinks he’s a really funny stand-up comic. Fortunately for all of us, he was pushed out the door early so the rest of us could get our quiz on. An extra 16 point round sounded pretty good to everyone as we geared up for quiz. With all those points in play, we had some fun rounds. We learned about hippie shit like where the name Subaru comes from and which He-Man figure smells like a dirty hippie. Another crowd favorite was a round

Bring Your Dinner Date Friend to Quiz!
JenKiper

I’m always impressed by the level of skill and joy that folks bring to quiz each week. Everyone comes out to fight for the top spot every week, but there can only be one. Even when a team realizes that they are not going to be that one, we all still have a great time, enjoy some tasty beer, and know that next week we’ll all come back together to try again. You know your quizzers are committed when their mom makes them a Geeks Who Drink t-shirt to wear to quiz (Check out that sweet shirt!). That's a really great mom...So who did what this week. Last night, we learned lots of new things. If you are looking for Larry the Chief Mouser, you will need to hop plane and head to

Let Quiz Keep You Warm
JenKiper

Last night was a brisk, cold one, but that couldn’t stop this quiz. After a visit to the coldness that is Iowa, where I learned how to pluck and gut my own chicken, it was great to see a full house of lovely quizzers ready to see who would reign supreme. Let’s find out how that all worked out. Sports questions never seem to get a great reception from most of my quizzers. There are a few who will gladly shout hooray, but they are usually drowned out by the roar of boos. Tonight, we featured a round of sports that almost everyone would love. With the return of a sports edition of our Duh! round. Sports questions for the everyday geek. NFL team with a squad of cheerleaders

Lovely Bunch of Quizzers
JenKiper

When I roll into the Green Room on Monday, I always hope that there will be a great bunch of quizzers and that we’ll have a great time at quiz. Last night fulfilled all of those expectations and I was happy to be a part of it. We laughed, we cried, we were amazed at the breadth and range of Danny Elfman’s musical reach. I really do love a good word game that combines pop culture knowledge and humor. Tonight’s Round 4 did all that and little more. By taking a well-known TV show and changing just one letter in the title, things can get really weird and sometimes really funny. One of my faves was Tyra Banks teaching preschoolers to smize for the new

Resolutions are for Quizzers
JenKiper

Resolutions are for quitters! Unless that resolution includes more quiz, then it’s a keeper. A great crowd came out of hibernation to see what tonight’s quiz would hold. Out of the gate, we had three 16 point rounds and everyone was primed and ready to play. Every once in a while, we have a round that is just plain fun. Last night’s opening round delivered a fun round of that was a mix of a word game with a dash of quiz. All the two word answers differed by only one letter. Flat faced dog’s new floor covering…Pug Rug. Stuart Little gets piss drunk…Mouse souse, although mice vice was pretty clever. The overall favorite Blackbeard and Bart Roberts

Kickin’ 2015 Out with a Bang
JenKiper

While I hate to miss a quiz, I really do love coming back to the Green Room. The staff and quizzers are the best and last night proved that to be true again. Lots of new folks in the house with a few regulars to balance out the mix. We all came together for this last quiz of 2015 and I’m looking forward to many more in the new year! Sometimes, it’s hard to tell if someone is telling a lie. Especially when it’s surrounded by facts. Last night’s quiz challenged everyone to consider three facts and then figure out the person who went with two of three facts. Sounds like it would be a pretty easy thing, until you’ve had a beer or two and they all start to

Get Behind Thee, 2015
Ptera Dactyl

Last night was cool! Thanks for welcoming me into your hearts again Green Room Burgers & Beer! I’ve guest hosted there quite a few times and every time you’ve all been very kind to me. I’m sure this isn’t the last you’ve heard of me there. I feel so sad when a team does really well on a 16-point round and they don’t joker. A couple of you could’ve been real contenders for first. Just another little reminder of how it behooves you to listen to me when I tell you the rules at the beginning, lest you miss out on something… Oh well! Next time! Congrats to the teams that did joker correctly (and

Lead Pipe in the ER by the Doctor
JenKiper

All the countdowns are on. To the end of school, to the start of holiday break, to the holidays, to the end of the year. Everyone took a break from all that counting to enjoy a little quiz action last night and last night’s quiz certainly delivered. From big daddies to weird diseases, we had a little something for everyone. So many traumatic things happen to people and we need to classify it. Mostly so you can be billed properly at a later date, but for knowledge! The International Classification of Diseases includes lots of weird stuff. Maple-syrup-urine-disease is a real thing that you can get so take it easy out there. Zellweger Syndrome is a very real peroxisomal disorder

Quiz…I Can’t Quit You!
JenKiper

With Turkey Day behind us, we bodly went into the last month of 2015. Quiz was almost upon us and lots of folks came out to test themselves and their fellow quizzers to see who would reign supreme. Enough pontification, how’d quiz work out. Last night’s music round was a bunch of hot numbers and a real challenge. With a whole round of songs or artists that were just a bit too hot to handle and a top score of 14, lots of teams decided to hold on to their joker. We all learned that not very many of us recognize or are familiar with Jason Derulo’s body of work and for that we should be proud. Most teams recognized the sexy boy band stylings of 98 Degrees, but couldn’t

Kizzle Kazzle Razzle Dazzle
JenKiper

Tonight we bid November a fond farewell. December is knocking on the door and a great group of eager quizzers came out to send the eleventh month off with a bang. With three 16 point rounds in play, there were lots of points up for grabs so let’s see how it all went down. Cover rounds seem to be the current trend and tonight we took things to a whole new level. Some of my favorite covers are done in the bluegrass style, mostly by the fantastic Texas Meat Purveyors. Our music round featured a whole slew of pop songs turned hillbilly and our teams struggled to pick out the pop songs from the banjos and fiddles. Classic rock seemed a good fit and many of you picked out both Journey

Sampling Does Not Make One the Original Artist
JenKiper

As everyone is making plans for the upcoming holiday, I was thrilled that so many folks came out to quiz. 18…Count ‘em…18 teams! Ya’ll almost killed me, but it was worth it. From the usual crew of regulars to a quizmaster visiting from Colorado, we all settled in for a fun round of questions and answers. We gave away beers and argued over the finer points of presidential inaugurations. All in all, we had a great time. That music round gave a whole new meaning to classic rock with mellow cello covers by 2Cellos. Actually, they weren’t mellow at all. Most of them were downright frenetic and pretty close to seizure inducing in my opinion. There was a lot

Happy Belated Birthday to Me
JenKiper

I like to stay in the good graces of the wonderful staff at the Green Room. They take great care of me and all of the quizzers who join us on Monday nights. Apparently, I should not forget to tell them when my birthday happens because they get a little upset. I think they just wanted an excuse to have cake, which I fully support. So we had cake as a belated birthday for me! Enough about me, what happened at quiz… I’ve always wanted an advanced degree in R.O.C.K., but just haven’t found the time to make it happen. Last might’s music round provided us all with a short course on artists and songs all about the medical profession of sorts. We may not have completed

Thrills, Chills and a Few Spills
JenKiper

Last night brought out all the quizzers and everyone brought their A-game. With almost every team scoring above 70 points, everybody showed off their smarts or brought their smart friends or both! Some folks were so excited that they spilled their beer all over them. The room was packed with folks so let’s get on with the recap. Punk versions of pop songs are generally a bad idea, except for Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, they get a pass. Tonight’s music round forced us to strain our ears and our imaginations to pick out the pop hits from the horrible punk cover from the Pop Goes Punk folks. Only one made the hair on my neck stand-up because it was super pitchy and I’m

Quiz is Your Bright Light in the Daylight Saving Time Darkness
JenKiper

Kansas City is a happy, but tired city right now. Between the late night sportsballing, for those who follow the Royals, to sheer sports fatigue by those who don’t, everyone was excited for some fun quizzing on a Monday night. So what exactly went down at quiz? Tonight’s music round did not disappoint. I was a little worried about the family with their kids who came in before quiz for dinner and those parents answering a few questions about our theme for Round 2, but fortunately, they left before we got started. The whole round focused on Kinky songs and artists that you might hear at a fetish bar. There were a few that everyone expected…S&M by Rhianna, sure.

It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year…BOO!
JenKiper

Halloween is just around the corner and the anticipation was high among the quizzers tonight. Oh, there’s that whole baseball thing too, but, really, it’s all due to the coming of the best holiday of the year. Any holiday that includes candy and cross-dressing is A-OK with me. Oh, wait, that’s kinda my everyday life, but I can win prizes for it on Halloween. Hooray! But what happened at quiz…well, here we go! We’ve had cover rounds, but never a whole music round in another language. Last night’s music round changed all of that with a round sung totally in Gaelic. That’s right, the music round went brogue and our quizzers tried to figure out

I'm A Quizmaster and I'm OK...Mostly
JenKiper

With more baseball happening, we carried on with quiz because we can multi-task. And, well, Cueto fell apart and then the wheels came off the bus. And we all knew that those boys in blue would bounce back tomorrow and kick some Canadian butt. Despite the sorrow in Mudville, we carried on with a fun and challenging quiz. Last night’s audio round combined before and after to create something completely different, or actually, someone completely different. Each question featured two clips and teams had to identify the person in each clip. Then by putting the first name of the first person and the last name of the second person, they could create a third person’s full name
