Have Me Back Anytime
TheHypnotoad

Well, what a great time I had with you all at Trifecta tonight! I could definitely get used to it. May have to get my quiz on as a player at the Trifecta. Rain couldn't keep away the quizzers tonight and that was fantastic. On to quiz! The round one Duh round one did seem to be as easy as advertised with quizzers dominating it other than remembering it's the INTERNATIONAL house of pancakes. The audio round was based around city names, with Swipe Write thoroughly enjoying the way it was assembled, especially Buffalo Soldier. The timed round with four syllables had everybody finger-counting but somehow Montpelier doesn't qualify, stupid French pronunciations! Don't

Where Eagles Dare
C.M. Geesey

Another tight game went in the books for Trifecta on 3rd, and if you weren’t able to join us, well then I take a very special pity on you.  You see, not only do we have more than the legal allotted amount of fun every Wednesday night at 8 PM (please don’t tell the police), we also had an extra special ceremony for the evening.  You see, our dedicated and amazing bartenders Shaini and Nick are there every night to fuel you with the lovely liquors and beautiful beers you so crave while racking your geek brains for answers.  So I decided it was time to make it official and rename the West

No Ball Room for Dancing
C.M. Geesey

I like to think that Geeks Who Drink, the nation’s most popular pub quiz in all major markets, caters to all walks of life and not just the typical geek and nerd hobbies.  So after a weekend where we saw the second Avengers come out and all of America was obligated to see it or allow terrorism to run rampant (at least that’s what I took from the marketing), we were able to switch up the themes by introducing what I know will become the fan favorite round each and every week we have it:  Ballroom Dancing! Now I know what you’re

Full Shift Overdrive: Challenge Time Maximum
C.M. Geesey

Never let it be said that when I throw down the gauntlet, our quizzers are quick to respond to challenge with enthusiasm.  As I’ve mentioned before, we’re slowly running out of room on the 2015 Trifecta Trophy as Boner Boner Boner Boner Boner Boner Boner Boner Boner Boner has taken two weeks in a row as our top champs.  Looking to keep the majestic columns free for future winners, Rural Jurors, Skeet, Pray, Love, and Putting Teabaggers on Layaway #JadeHelms15 all stepped up to take on our rounds in silly subscription boxes, lipstick and pigs (no Sarah Palin references, by the way), and Broadway showtunes with a special

Happy Earth Day, Birth! Wait, No...
C.M. Geesey

I was happy to have everyone back again, as we’ve hit the sweet spot this month with all the holidays falling on Wednesdays for us to come together and celebrate.  We’ve played the fools and thanked our lucky stars taxes are over with for the year, and now we get to celebrate the biggest day of the year, absolutely, by far:  Earth Day!  Because let’s face it, we should be a little more apt to celebrate the thing that basically allows us to exist.  So thank you, Earth, hope you had a great birthday!  Thanks for all of the oxygen and what not, we’ll try to keep the wars and pollution down a bit.  No promises. We also continued the

Paying the Taxes Geek Style
C.M. Geesey

We were all atwitter as your favorite Wednesday night quiz got amped up, because I’m sure you all heard the big announcement that yes, the national pub quiz sensation you know and love is becoming SyFy’s latest and greatest broadcast piece of art since Sharknado 2:  The Second Sharknado Happens.  You’ll soon be able to enjoy Geeks Who Drink at home and hosted by the closest thing Hollywood could come to, well, me, Zachary Levi!  You know, from Alvin and the Chipmunks:  The Squeakuel!?  That’s right, your beloved

Quizzes So Tight it Must Be Botox
C.M. Geesey

I’ve only been an Austinite recently, and I do have to say that everyone has been very supportive and happy toward me moving to their wonderful city and clogging up traffic even more and using up even more of the resources.  Thank you all for not greeting me with the stereotypical snobbery and ostracizing temperament you could have deservedly so as locals, and I was more than happy to pass that vibe along to our out-of-town visitors The Transplants, visiting our weird city, and also trying out Geeks Who Drink for the first time.   We’re always happy to have fresh meat, but after a Jokered double-point Round 3 gave them a 32 points in one round

The April Fire Bacon Day Celebration of 2015
C.M. Geesey

Well, last night’s quiz was called on account of being too overrun with dumb April’s Fool Day pranks throughout the day, including the first part of this sentence.  So there, I did one, I participated in your favorite day, Internet!  I hope you’re happy, you great terrible thing.  I also set up a playlist that had every single song with the word fool in the title, courtesy of the iTunes search bar function.  So we were having a fun silly day right from the get go, but that didn’t stop the celebrations from piling on from there. First, the fine folks from Jack Daniels stopped by with some samples of Fire (and free fucking hats holy shit!) to
