Quiz You Like An Animal
Ken

When things get intimate at Buck & Badger, the competition gets fierce. All six teams had a higher stake in taking home the much vaunted first place gift certificate. So what happened? Well Nine Inch Males couldn’t measure up and dropped out. Living in Stupid Watergate and Return of Flying Bionicats traded spaces with each other. LMNOP and Three Headaches jockeyed for position, but couldn’t best the dominant regulars Bell Triv Devoe.

My Tinder Profile Pic is Set to Orca
Laura

Hey there quizzers! There must be something in the water out there because we had a 2017 record at Buck and Badger Tuesday night for quiz! A whopping 15 teams turned out to test their knowledge and beer drinking skills. Word on the street (them mean streets of Madison, of course) is that the boom in folks was attributed to the Great Dane’s Monday quiz being on hiatus. That’s okay, we have a set policy here at the B&B that we will welcome all refugees to our quiz. Take that, Donald, you Cheeto-in-Chief!   In round 4, “Everyone Pay Attention to Me” (a round on Instagram, Internet stardom, and narcissism in general) question

Full House at Buck & Badger
Ken

Y’all came out in droves for one of the most packed Geeks Who Drink quizzes at Buck & Badger in a while. But you know what made the night great? Even with a full house everyone played along nicely. This quizmaster definitely appreciates it. Farts managed to climb to third place both silently and dead...lily? James Comey and the Giant Impeachment put up a respectable challenge, but admittedly second-guessed what would have been a right answer. They got second, while Roving ATV Gang stole the show.

We Came! We Sweat! We Geeked!
Laura

Greetings Quizzers! Thanks for stopping by to get the down low and the low down (both are equally important) on the Tuesday night quiz at Buck & Badger!   We had a nice intimate 6 team night at the B&B. While our sound system continues to live its best life (which, just being alive at this point is I believe the best it can do at this point!) and the temps rose to a fever pitch, it was a breezy and close quiz!   Like I said, it was warm at quiz, and that must have inspired team Turn on the A/C into a third place finish, with regulars Roving ATV Gang squeaking past into second. Our first place

May the Eleventh Be... Ummm...
Ken

We now return to your regularly scheduled Geeks Who Drink program at Buck & Badger. It's back to the come-one-come-all non-pre-registration required quiz action you know and love.  Bell Triv Devoe called the Quizmaster out for not playing “I’ve Had the Time of My Life” and you know what, they were right to do so. They finished with a respectable third place. Trash Pandas were able to claw their way to second. However, the team Epic Fail

Laura

Hey there, teams! Thanks for checkin’ the ol’ blog for the weekly wrap up of our Tuesday night debauchery at Buck & Badger! I was happy to see 8 smiling teams, and while our sound system continues with its “creative process” that I like to interrupt by asking it to you know, work from time to time, we got through to the finish line… and boy what a finish! The winning team won by ONE point! That’s a photo finish worthy of murdering a bunch of roses for, right? But I digress….   Did you know someone made a theme park ride out of The Fast & The Furious? Of course you don’t! While there have

Space... the Final Quiz Frontier
Ken

May the 4th be with you. The long awaited Let the Wookie Win: A Star Wars Quiz docked and competition was fierce.   I Hate You was working through some emotional issues and placed third place. Imperial Stormtrooper Marksmanship Academy missed the mark when it came to the tie-breaker question and hit second place. What the hell is an Aluminum Falcon?! Whatever they are they won the whole thing by correctly guessing an incredibly obtuse tie-breaker question. They took home

Laura

Greetings, Quizzers! It was a nice 8-team night for 8 rounds of quiz! We started off the night with a mellow 8 questions on current events and after that got the ‘ol blood moving (you know, just enough to remember the Tom-foolery of the week but not enough to get to aneurysm level like, say, watching CNN) we were off to the races for the night. We ended up being “hashtag blessed” to have a working sound system and have it be below 80 degrees. Winning! Tiger blood! Fist-pumps and other assorted excited utterances!   Taking home first place were regulars Werk Hard Twerk Hard and second went to our other Buck & Badger faithful

Cancer Sucks. Charity Doesn't.
Ken

Cancer sucks. We can all agree on that, right? Great.   We did Quiz for a Cause tonight at Buck & Badger. The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society was able to raise some cold hard cash to put an end to a blight upon humanity. The children who benefit from their cause will be grateful for everyone who generously donated.   Things were tight on top. Any Which Way But Loose nabbed the third place spot. Buckingham Phallus

Hot Quiz! Check it And See! All The Teams Got Pretty Sweaty
Laura

What a hot night of quiz Tuesday night at Buck and Badger! No seriously, it was hot in the dining room. I was sweating like Sean Spicer in a synagogue. The official forecast from the reader on the wals had it 81 in the bar where the door was open, and about 87 in the dining room. Hot damn! I got a fever! And screw you, cowbell, the prescription is cold beer! We had 11 teams sit down to quiz and I love how you guys keep me guessing whether or not I’ve printed out enough round 5 sheets with your attendance. Why do drugs when you can live off the adrenaline of “did I make enough copies!?” Keep it up though quizzers, we may have to sweat off our respective genitalia, but we had

On May 4th the lovely Jedi Katherine and Sith Lord Ken will be hosting Let the Wookie Win: A Star Wars Quiz.

Greetings Quizzers! Thanks for braving your Easter/Sean Spicer ruins Passover for Everyone hangovers and dropping by to get the low down on the Tuesday festivities at Buck & Badger Northwoods Lodge! We were thrilled to celebrate the birthday of one of our regulars, Caitlin, of Roving ATV Gang. They even brought cupcakes to the bar! That’s some serious hashtag SquadGoals, right there. In her honor, her team named itself Roving Caitlin’s Birthday Gang and took home first prize! Happy birthday Caitlin!   Following up in second and third respectively were teams Kim Jong Un-Chained and You’re

How Many Licks Does it Take to Win?
Ken

Living in Wisconsin you get used to the cheese. It is a way of life. But little did this quizmaster know that there is a thing called Cheese Club where roving bands of people all order cheese curds at a restaurant like Buck & Badger. Well they melted away into the night just before the main event, so that’s awesome.   There was a double elimination for third! Dildo Schwaggins and Possible Gnomes were bested by Epic

Regulators!!!
Ken

Mount up! Buck & Badger was packed to the gills with fierce competition from returner and newbies alike. But let’s not just stand on ceremony. Let’s jump straight into the results.   Regulars and smiling faces Bell Triv Devoe finished in a respectable third place. Shack Full of Bears, which I’m told is an inside joke and NOT an actual small enclosure full of ursus americanus, clawed their way to second place. But it was Bye Bye Little Sebastian that finished on top

Sex and Drugs and House
Christian

I do my best to play only the hottest music on my quiz nights. Eddie Money. Scott Walker. SO MUCH MANDY MOORE. But tonight I was outshined. By the Buck and Badger kitchen, no less.   Right in the middle of our audio round, I heard a Faustian voice making me an offer I couldn't refuse. He tempted me with sex. He tempted me with drugs. Most importantly, he tempted me with house.   To be fair, the song itself is hot garbage, but it holds a special place in my heart after capping off a random, post-grad power hour. Imagine drinking 59 shots of beer, then trying to process this:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bn6vuXqAEHk   Right?
