September, We Hardly Knew Ye
JenKiper

Tonight we bid farewell to September. It feels like it just started and already it’s gone right by. But with that, I know Halloween can’t be far behind and I can now break out my hoodie/sweater collection without bursting into flames. Also all those bugs and allergens will be a thing of the past soon and we’ll be ready to hibernate and binge watch all the stuff that we’ve been ignoring so that we could be outside in the sun. Enough of that ode to autumn, what went down at quiz? Every once in a while a celebrity pops up at quiz. Usually in KC, it’s a local meteorologist or morning tv personality. Sometimes its someone that pretty well known from a local

Geeky Women Will Rule the World
JenKiper

With several birthday quizzers in the house, we were in for a party atmosphere. If you do the math on that, we know how their parents were dealing with all of that holiday stress. For me, I’m happy that their parents took that path because each one of them is a pretty fantastic person and they all helped us to have a great time at quiz last night. When you run a quiz that is mostly attended by a bunch of geeky guys, you hear lots of jokes focused on a certain part of the male anatomy. Even our beloved writers who deliver all of those fun rounds and jokes based around the same topic are also the ones who have that same anatomy. I’ve had answer sheets entirely covered with

You’re Not Just Whistling in the Dark There, Are You?
JenKiper

With the onset of Red Friday and slightly cooler weather, fall can’t be far away. And with comes the sneezing and torture of seasonal allergies. I’m a loud sneezer in general and when you add a microphone to that mix, it’s downright ridiculous. So I apologize in advance for these outbursts because they’ll be around until the first good freeze. But until then, I’ll sniffle along and try to give you some good quiz to make up for the occasional loud interruptions. Occasionally, our second audio round really shines bringing out the giggling teen in all of us. Last night was such an occasion. Teams had to name the film that could be used to describe a certain

There Are Lots of Things That Taste Better Than Skinny
JenKiper

Sometimes there’s a quote that just hits you wrong. Last night that moment was delivered to me in the form of a quote from Kate Moss. Apparently when asked what her motto would be she popped out these words of wisdom: “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.” Just off the top of my head, I can pop off at least 10 things, but I’ve never been skinny and I don’t really have any desire for it. Doughnuts taste good and that’s alright by me. At least, I know I won’t have to share them with Kate, but I might, if she recanted that stupid motto and figured out something more positive and aspirational for everyone. On to the quiz! Last night was filled

Takin Care of Quizness
Ptera Dactyl

It’s ALWAYS a pleasure to have a chance to guest host for Jen at Green Room. I’ve been the regular stand-in whenever Jen needs a hand throughout the years, so many of her quizzers are familiar faces as well. That’s great! Congrats to Trying to Find the Huma in the Wiener Situation, you guys are often the winners when I guest spot at Green Room, so why should this time be any different? I know this won’t be the last time we see each other, so so long for now!

The Wonderful Quizzarding World of Harry Potter
Ptera Dactyl

Wow! Another year, another Harry Potter themed quiz. Every year they get harder and harder, as we have to delve deeper into the lore to get fresh questions. We got a whole other book this year, though, so that helped! There were so many names, I can’t believe you guys got them all. Any person that played would be proud to say they placed at all. Sorry about those too-soon dead-kid jokes. R.I.P., fam. Pour out a lil’ butterbeer for the homies. Congrats to Panju’s Passenger Pigeon Patronus for taking

Those Sweet, Sweet 90s
JenKiper

Last night I decided to try a new playlist and one popped up called Sweet 90s hits. That was just what we needed. It was a quiz sing-a-long night with Backstreet Boys and R. Kelly being belted out by most everyone in the bar. There was even some interpretive dancing that happened during I Believe I Can Fly (See pics for more on that). And then the Crash Test Dummies came up just in time for that question about Tina Belcher, my spirit animal, from Bob’s Burgers. It was a night of flashback and kismet indeed. All the quizzers were on their game and ready to score! All of these strange mash-ups are making the rounds, so we had a mash-up movie round. Some these sound better

Round 3 was just a pigment of your imagination.
That Guy Evan

…Or was it?  Ever since I was little, I always wondered if the individual colors that each person sees are actually the same from person to person, or is what I see as “blue” different than the blue that you see?  With people that are colorblind, we know that it’s possible. But for the majority of folks, have we just agreed on a consensus of the colors across the visual spectrum, or is your red (my green) a color we both call yellow, and are there visible colors that not everyone can see exactly the same way?  It’s all just reflections of light, so wouldn’t it make sense that there are an infinite number of deviations when it comes to how

This Quiz Powered By Dolly
JenKiper

Last night’s quiz was powered by Dolly Parton. That’s right, Dolly. Others were high on th swimming Olympic gold medals, but I was high on the residual Dolly fumes from seeing her in Chicago over the weekend. Not sure why I waited this long to make it happen, but I am happy I did. So I was revved up and ready to go for a great quiz. Classic works of literature always pop up in the strangest places. They serve as perpetual inspiration for everything from slapstick comedies to serious dramas. Our bonus 16 point round was a round on movies based on classic works of literature. Most teams did pretty well, but not all of them were Shakespeare plays, although 2 of them were.

Puttin' Putin inside Poutine
Kelly

It’s always fun subbing at a venue where you’ve been a regular before. It’s kind of like coming home. You know the beer. You know the food. And you especially know the service is going to be on point. It’s also great to see how much it’s changed. Apparently Green Room has a Batman pinball machine now? I’m not complaining. It’s a talking point. And the flashing lights next to my head all night just added to the ambience. I listen to a lot of new music at my day job, so I knew that Demi Lovato and Charli XCX had birthdays this month. That’s just because

Avoiding the Pitfalls and Alligators of Monday
JenKiper

Monday can be a tough one. With the end of the weekend, many people dread the impending doom that Monday might hold. Though the gauntlet of cranky co-workers and strong desires to be anyplace else, we keep pushing forward to get through the day. Our reward is a fantastic night of quiz with friends and beer which makes the horrors of the day fade away. Hooray for quiz! Sometimes when we try new things, we don’t immediately like them. They take some time to settle in and win us over. Last night’s Round 6 had that effect on many teams. Based on a wildly inaccurate description, teams had to name the hit movie. It didn’t click for me until the third question and then I

Hot Quiz in the City, Running Wild and Looking Pretty
JenKiper

Kansas City has been one hot town over the last few weeks and we kept that hot quiz action rolling tonight at the Green Room. There was a lively bunch of quizzers and I came ready to put them through their paces. With beers and drinks in hand, they were ready to give it their all and show off their smarts. And maybe win a free beer or two in the process. So how did that all work out? Tonight we had a whole round on the smallest of states, Rhode Island. There was lots to like about this round. I got to say thespian several times since Viola Davis is a Rhode Island native and and Emmy winner. Apparently, Newport has several festivals, but only one tried to boo Bob Dylan

Gotta Quiz 'Em All
JenKiper

So when your quiz venue turns out to be a Pokestop, you really find out a lot about your quizzers. I decided to set a lure before quiz to see who would get excited about that and it was split about 60/40. Most of the crowd was already on their phone discussing strategy and talking other people into downloading Pokemon Go. The others thought this was all a ridiculous thing complete with mocking and head shaking. Either way, I got a 300+ Pinsir and leveled up so I’m calling it success. On to the quiz! With an extra 16 point round up for play, teams had important choices to make. Joker the music round or wait to see what the extra 16 point round holds? Most teams opted for the music

The Heat Is On…
JenKiper

The best way to beat the summer heat is to settle in for some cool quiz action. With a full house of quizzers ready to rise to the challenge, we set off for a full night of quiz. After all that build up, let’s get to the quiz! Musicians can makes some weird noises when they are trying to make sweet, sweet music. Our music round focused on all those weird sounds that come out when they’re not quite sure what the words should be. Macklemore is really nothing without Ryan Lewis especially on their Can’t Hold Us number. The Red Hot Chili Peppers throw down some racist sounding noise on their Around the World. Two of my favorites were also featured in this round. The B-52’s

Longest Quiz of the Year
JenKiper

With the summer solstice and a full moon upon us, I knew we were in for a great night of quiz. While it wasn’t my longest quiz ever, since there were no ties to settle, it was so much fun I didn’t want it to end. As we tilt our way to cooler weather and shorter days, we were ready to see what the night would hold! Sometimes a round makes us all laugh and other times it confuses the hell out of us. Last night’s round 4 was a bit of both. Teams had to figure out who the famous person was from the clues and then combine that with another word that sounds like their last name to create a phrase that ties them together. All of them were possessives as well which not everyone

Hot Quiz Action
JenKiper

Summer has arrived and it was time for some hot quiz action. The Green Room was primed and ready with the quizzers at the ready. After a week off to train our newest QM Evan, I was ready to get back on the mic and have some fun. Sometimes our audio rounds make me laugh and sometimes they make us all laugh. Last night we all had a good laugh at Your Butt: The Movie. Teams had to name the movie from the audio clip with a title that could describe your butt or things that come out of it. Hilarity ensued. Titanic, ok, I see that one. Strange Brew, I guess that works if you have too much PBR and wings. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was a little bit of stretch, but I
