'Smoreos Hit Shelves Today
WhitneyWhitworth

*****Important Information******* Before we begin, I just need to make an important announcement: Smoreos are out today. That's right, smore flavored Oreos. I am having a release party at my house tonight. http://kotaku.com/snacktaku-tries-smores-oreos-aka-smoreos-1706139259 Oh my beautiful quizzers, can you believe it is almost June already and Memorial Day weekend is happening right now? I swear, just a few short months ago we huddled close to each other, not for the free beer bonus question, but to keep our body temperatures up from the chilly winter nights. We’ve had some really great times here, and I hope

May the Force Be with You
WhitneyWhitworth

It’s like you put a call out into the void and sometimes it gets answered. Quite a few of our regular teams, just like Slim Shady/Eminem/Marshall Bruce Mathers III , were back, back again, which made my heart full of the kind of joy that I haven’t experienced since that time when I held five kittens in my arms at once. For me, basically you guys are friends that I get paid to hang out with for an hour once a week, so, I mean, what’s not to like?     For the most part, our entire quiz was relatively enjoyable last night. There weren’t any rounds that stood out as

Who is Matt?
WhitneyWhitworth

What is the best way to host a quiz when your voice is quickly fading due to a cold? Why, get a Quiz Master in training, of course! Last night, we were lucky to have future Quiz Master Matt join us to host a few rounds. Even though Matt is relatively new to all of this, he guided you through questions about Tchaikovsky and your 50/50 round like a P-R-O. Werk, Matt! Meanwhile, I did my best just to make sure that you could still hear me, as once again, my sore throat rendered me a pony for the evening. !!DAD JOKE ALERT!!! BEEEEP BEEEEEP!!! DAD JOKE ALERT!!!! Because I was… a little horse. Womp, womp, womp, womp. One of our other quizzers informed

Who Scores More than Your Mom?
Whitney

Wow, wow, wow, wow, wow. Mom jokes aside, guess who scored a ton last night? You guys! I have been a Quiz Master for over a year now and by far these were the highest scores that I have ever seen. Out of a possible 96 points, our highest score of the evening, held by none other than Welcome to the Gang Bang with 87 points. They doubled a 15 point round, scored 8’s and one 7 on their single point rounds and missed just a few on our final round. That itself was fantastic, but what made the night even better was that all of our other teams also scored like America’s basketball team in the Olympics against every other nation. To put it bluntly, aside from team Modie,

Apparently Kid Says, "We Looooove Fight Club, Apparently"
Whitney

Oh how quickly the waters can turn from warm to cold. Within the course of ten minutes, the crowd went from, “we love you Whitney!” to my security detail hurrying me out of the building while stones were cast in my direction- all because it was implied that Fight Club was an over-rated movie. Personally, I love fight club. I used to have the poster up on my wall in High School, I have seen a special screening of it presented by Edward Norton and have read the book twice. But just like on the internet, IRL, once something is said, you can’t un-say it. I feel like I am the Ron Burgundy of the quiz world- just reading the teleprompter without thinking. This is also

Happy Birthday Cole! Have Some Pickles!
Whitney

I can honestly say that last night at Madrona Alehouse was super eventful. Holy crap. I mean, during the first round alone we had a trunk fire break out in a car in a parking lot near us, filling the streets with a thick white smoke that seeped its vapors into our little eatery and distracted us for at least five minutes. We also had a decent sized quiz last night, which always makes things more interesting. However, car smoke and patrons aside, probably the best part about last night was the free pickles that were given away in lieu of beer tokens. In fact, the organic, locally sourced pickles were so popular, that they were chosen first instead of the typical second place $10 gift certificate

We Hugged Our Quiz Forward!
Whitney

Last night at Madrona Alehouse, we hosted a really great Quiz for a Cause, supporting the Hug it Forward project, building bottle schools in Guatemala. We were joined by Emily and Jackie, who explained that they are on the last leg of their fundraising journey to bring education in a forward-thinking environmentally friendly way by using “eco-bricks” to build schools for many who may not otherwise get this experience of knowledge and learning that every child deserves. You can find more about their cause and ways that you could get involved at http://hugitforward.org/. It’s pretty fascinating and worth a Google. We were lucky

If It Were Possible to Make Me Stop Talking, My Mom Would Have Found a Way Years Ago.
Whitney

Buh. Brahs, I am so sorry for my horrible voice last night, or what little there was. But with some hot tea, lots of water, and all of the cough drops I could scrounge up in my purse, I made it, or rather, we made it together. Thank you for all of your suggestions that I go home, put on pajamas, and cozy up to Scandal and some warm tea. My secret of the night- I was already wearing pajamas. That’s right! I fooled you by disguising them with a blazer and a skirt over top, but I assure you, I was wearing a bedtime onesie underneath. I like to plan for the future. Just as I hope you will all be planning ahead for our super special Quiz for a Cause next week by bringing five dollars in cash,
