Golden Girls Erotica makes me turn Rose Red for Dorothy.
Adam Jarmon Brown

We had a quiz! It was an awesome quiz! Great crowd. Fun music. Amazing food. Then came the round. A round on Television Erotic Fan Fiction. A round of Erotic fan fiction on such shows as The A-Team, Homeland, and my personal favorite as a Deadpool fan, The Golden Girls.   Speaking of Deadpool… The movie premieres next week! On Thursday night. So I won’t be hosting my usual quiz, and instead I’ll have my ass firmly planted in a theater seat with giant popcorn and giant soda loving every minute of Deadpool’s R rated glory.   BUT quiz will still happen. You’ll have the

Kurt Vonnegut’s 70’s time travel war tribute band
Adam Jarmon Brown

  We had a quiz! Yes we did. Welcome back to our regularly scheduled blog about our regularly scheduled quiz. I am, Adam, your usual Quizmaster. Except on February 11th. When I’ll be going to see Deadpool in theaters. Seriously. Go see Deadpool. It looks awesome.   Sometimes a team will write their team name nigh illegibly and I, being a bit of a jerk, won’t bother to try and suss it out either making them write it clearer or giving them a random name that makes fun of their hand writing. But last night I decided to figure out what my favorite team name was, and was richly rewarded for my effort with

Last Quiz with Mary-Jane
Adam Jarmon Brown

Hello quizzers!   I was gone last week, and you had the amazing Kirsten sub in for me. And everyone told me what a great job she did. Meanwhile, I drove over four thousand miles in 7 days. From Abq to Houston to Tennessee and back again. And let me tell you, I was exhausted.   But I have returned to the Cube for my last quiz in 2015. And what a quiz it was! It was my very first Quiz for a Cause, supporting the Fat Katz Cat Rescue here in Albuquerque. And all of you dug deep, and donated. It was enough to warm the cockles of my heart.   All in all the rescue

Swords are for Stabbing
Kirsten

It was my pleasure to sub for Adam this week and get some yummy bbq (something my diet has been sorely missing since my recent move from North Carolina).  Solid quiz performance this week, with first place reaching those upper 70’s heights.  Congrats to I’ve Seen this Horse Before, It’s Nei-i-i-i-i-ija Vu, whose MVP managed to come away with three bonus prizes, meaning the team essentially doubled their first place prize and walked away with 30 bbq bucks.  Gretzy Bros put in a strong second place effort, with Hippies Use the Back Door and Alvin’s The Chipmunks Episode IV: The Minkpire Chips

At the tender age of seven, Kirsten sat crying under the coat rack in Mrs. Johnston's second grade classroom.  She had misspelled "receive" and learned the harsh lesson that it was possible to get an answer wrong. Fifteen years later, that douchebag is your Geeks quizmaster.  A job that feeds her know-it-all soul.

Schindler's Bucket List
Adam Jarmon Brown

Ah quizzers. It was so lovely to be back on point after taking Thanksgiving week. We had teams! We had beer! We had some laughs. And everyone seems to have had a “Meh” thanksgiving! Maybe Christmas will be better?   We had some new teams last night! And everyone stuck it out till the end. #cake’s challengers this week went by the nom de plume #sweetroll. Unfortunately #cake soundly schooled them by a 26 point spread. I really need to start putting money on this.   I’ll be gone next week for a friends wedding in Tennessee.

Chipotle Miserables
Adam Jarmon Brown

Welcome back quizzers!   Another week, another awesome quiz! As well as some amazing green chile chicken soup and pumpkin praline pie. I swear every week I try some new dish from The Cube and every week I am amazed by how good the food is.   This was the week before thanksgiving, alas it’s also the last quiz of November. We’ll be back in two weeks after the Thanksgiving holiday. Also, coming up on December 17th is our Quiz for a Cause for FAT KATZ cat rescue. http://www.fatkatzabq.org/   We had eight

No Country For Old Dogs
Adam Jarmon Brown

A nice intimate night of quiz to be had! Eight teams of mostly regulars, and a gaggle of police silently judging us on the drug round. Or not, they were actually fairly cool cops, just there to eat some delicious BBQ. Of which the Cube has an abundance. I had an amazing BBQ chicken sandwich with swiss cheese last night. Soooooo good.   This week for me, your intrepid quiz master Adam, has consisted of re-arranging my living room out of boredom. Watching Alan Tudyk’s Con Man (spoiler alert! it’s awesome!) and ordering new clothes online for a wedding I am attending in December. I did learn that italian clothes

Victoria's Secret of NIMH
Adam Jarmon Brown

No gaming news to report this week. I actually took a week off Destiny and haven’t played anymore BTTF the game. Tho I did finally download the final two episodes of Life is Strange and I might slam those out this weekend.   Today I went to best buy and decided I wanted to get an apple watch. Pretty cool right? They even had the exact model I wanted, 42mm space gray sport, in an open box for $30 off. Excellent condition! I get it home, power it up and go to pair it with my iPhone. That was when I learned that the dude who returned it never unpaired it from his iPhone. Which means the activation lock is on. Called apple to see if anything

The Hobbit: There and Bennigan's
Adam Jarmon Brown

Level 36 in Destiny. Planning to buy the thriller dance. That is your weekly destiny update from Quiz Master Adam.   I did play up to episode 3 of Back to the Future the game. It’s quite a bit more fun than I expect, and I still have two more episodes to go!   Onto quiz. Larger turn out than I expected. I always hate/love when I have to ask people to bring visual rounds back up. Hold steady at 10 teams for a few weeks and then boom you got a couple more.   Eight rounds of stuff! From Recently in Stuff, onto the audio round Masque-Rave. That was about

Crota's End - Looks like he needs to do some squats
Adam Jarmon Brown

Ah, Crota’s End. And by that I mean the Destiny raid. We gathered a fire team. My level 32 Warlock was the weakest character. And spend about an hour getting our asses handed to us by The Fallen. In the end we persevered and took down Oryx’s son. And I bumped up to level 33.   34 after running some strikes yesterday. That’s my weekly Destiny update. I did grab Telltale’s Back to the Future The Game - 30th anniversary edition this week. I plan to spend my free time this weekend slamming it out. Expect a BTTF update next Thursday. I’ve already put about 40 minutes in and I am quite enjoying

Hemlock, Gin and Juice
Adam Jarmon Brown

Thursday! Thursday! Thursday! It’s 8p on Thursday night and you know what that means don’t you quizzers? It’s time for Geeks who drink at The Cube. I’ve spent my week slowing down a little bit on Destiny. Only squeaking up to level 30. But I have a bad ass exotic hand cannon, the Hawkmoon that’s THIS CLOSE to being fully upgraded. I also have been totally absorbed into James S.A. Corey’s The Expanse series. Blowing through the first three books, Leviathan Wakes, Caliban’s War, and Abaddon’s Gate in two weeks and all of the short novellas as well. Looking forward to starting

Lawnmower Dog
Adam Jarmon Brown

The past few months of soliciting bribes from my quizzers paid off in the form of a delicious bohemian beer last night. Mmmmm, beer. On to quiz! 8 rounds of quiz took place last night at The Cube BBQ. Our themes, in numerical order were: 1) Elemental Spelling 2) Ladies and Gentlemen: Mr Clean and Swiffers (Music round!) 3) Dat Cludeo: Cinematic Edition (possible 16pts!) 4) Your mom is banal and trite 5) Here’s what’s happening in your neck of the woods (Visual round!) 6) We Can’t Be Friends 7) Goin’ South

Slaughterhouse on the Prairie
Adam Jarmon Brown

It’s that time of that week again quizzers. Thursday night at The Cube. We had eight rounds of quiz and a pretty packed house between quizzers and non quizzers. And I even got several tables of non-quizzers  to join in on the fun. So between quiz, breaking level 25 in Destiny and starting the House of Wolves expansion my week has been pretty awesome. And yes, I didn’t start playing Destiny until The Taken King came out a few weeks ago, and I think my experience has been much richer for it. Anyway… we had eight rounds of quiz tonight. In no particular numbered order they were:

Legion of Super-Gyros
Adam Jarmon Brown

Another week has passed, and you know what that means? Time for another quiz at The Cube! Some regulars came to play. Some new folks came to play. I got a delicious slice of pie and started my annual tradition of drinking rum nog before bed. Also, I still haven’t managed to find a pair of the New All-Stars. Bummer! We had 8 rounds of questions on a variety of subjects: 1) It Came From The Last Week of September 2) Gatsby’s Greatest Hits (music!) 3) State Your Name, Please 4) Miami, Vice and Miami Vice 5) Papal Smear (visual!)

The one that wasn’t a Doctor Who Quiz
Adam Jarmon Brown

I had the most amazing turkey leg and corn on the cob for dinner last night. I open my blog with this cause my dinner was provided by the wonderful staff at The Cube. I think The Cube might be my favorite venue I’ve worked so far just for the food and pie. I do totally regret not getting another piece of the chocolate pie last night. Onto the quiz! We had eight rounds, as always. It was a bit more intimate of an evening as several of my regular teams were off (I assume) playing the Doctor Who quiz. We opened with a round (1) on nine letter words like rectangle and champagne. The moved onto an audio round of girl groups
