Is Such a Quiz Even Possible?...Yes it is
Matt

Ahoy there, brave adventurers! Despite the bitter cold and shitty roads, we had a toasty time at CB&P with one of the highest newcomer turnouts in recent memory. Tonight, we got feisty with a 50/50 face-off, pinned down a few songs with pointedly imperative lyrics, and brought out the bratwursts to barrel our way through a round on Bavaria. Ach du lieber, indeed! Our 2nd through 4th place finishers ended the night within just 3 points of one another, but Hillary Wants Bernie’s Caucus came to dominate, capping things off with a 15-point lead. Damn! Honorable mentions to everyone for rocking the visual and video rounds, guess those monetary and conspirator-y

This Here's Quiz Country, Feller
Matt

"...And quiz returned fiercely to take back the bar, and all was good in the world once more."-Revelation 23 Hooray! Tonight, we assembled some historical agendas, pleaded with the networks to remove 8 considerably awful tv shows for good, and told some songwriters where they could stick their lazy lyrics. Hey hey hey, goodbye, indeed! Congrats to Dilby the Aardvark for pulling out all the stops and grabbing 1st with a 2-point lead. Honorable mentions to The Wet Dream Catchers and Drinks on the House for the only perfect Round 5 scores, and to Curious to See the Size of Bernie's Caucus for setting all

Here's to the (Relatively) Silent Majority
Matt

Hello, Superior quizzers! Tonight, we endured ruthless competition for the sound-space of the bar area with a particularly lively group who decided their reserved space didn't have the proper acoustics. But two and a half hours and countless decibels later, we miraculously ended our quiz free of bloodshed. So first and foremost, thanks for hanging in there, quizpokes! I pored over tonight's questions looking for a juicy tidbit to elaborate, but everything seemed to fall short in light of our video round tribute to that recently departed Master of Sarcasms, the incomparable Alan Rickman. So in the interest of paying respects, let's take a look at his voluminous career, shall we? Alan

Et tu, Beano?
Matt

Top of the evening’ to ya, faithful quizzers! Tonight, we worked through a few of our ABCs, cut our teeth on real vs. fake operas, and relieved ourselves with some gassy Greco-Roman guesses. It looked like One Biiiiiillion Dollars had things all wrapped up for most of the quiz after a deadly Round 2 joker. But it wasn’t over yet for Hammer of God, who deployed a joker of their own in our final round to nab first by just one point. Well done, lads! Honorable mentions to Dock Dirty With Me and Jar Jar Binks is a Sith Lord for netting two perfect rounds apiece; however, seeing those names next to one

Welcome to 2015+1
Matt

Greetings, Quizpersons of the Future! Tonight, we sailed through Januarys of yore, got all adventurous with our 50/50 round, and worked our way from John Cleese to Kevin Bacon in only 8 easy steps. Wakey wakey indeed! It was a mad dash to first, with Round 2 jokers eventually sealing the deal for our top 3 contenders (even though they all did better in Round 8; oh, the irony!). We Got Excited and Quizzed Ourselves ended up with the advantage after besting Boy for Sale in Rounds 5 and 7, with Quizzed in Our Pants taking the 3rd spot with grace and poise. More than half of our teams who stuck it out to the end collected over 60 points;

2016's Coming Our Way (And Damn, She's Lookin' Fine)
Matt

Holy moly! After taking last Tuesday off to visit some fam for the holidays, I barely made it back in time to close out our last quiz of 2015 at CB&P. Sorry to miss out on what was surely a great yuletide quiz time last week, but I got some great feedback from John, the wonderful sub who you must have somehow paid off. Tonight, we recapped our best-of 2015 Weeks in Stuff, went double-or-nothing on some extra point opportunities in Round 3, and brought back some horrific memories with a smattering of truly unfunny movies. As if you hadn’t seen the Daddy’s Home trailer enough, right? Although, most of you wrote down Stepdad, so apparently Paramount’s

Upstairs without a paddle, that’s where.Those of you in the know waded through Christmas song after bearable Christmas song just to play the quiz on this nippy December evening. A shout out to our winning teams, for making for a competetive race to first. And the amigos of Call Me [phone number redacted]

Here's the 411 on Mr. H:

He's 29. He's surprisingly engaged. He's an art teacher-turned-instructional coach at a local high school. A really good one.

When not belching into a microphone, John can be found:

  • Sipping brews at the Dark Lord's favorite brewery.
  • Playing competitive air guitar.
  • Flopping Magic cards with the other dorks.
  • Bulleting lists...with extreme prejudice.

I Skipped the GOP Debate AND Drove Through the Snow, All For a Madea Clip?
Matt

Hey there quiz-icles! I was overjoyed to see so many of you make it out tonight, despite the worst roads so far this season. Such bravery, such determination! All for the world’s best excuse to sit in a nice cozy booth and drink on a Tuesday night. This evening, we busted out some learnin’ with a pairing of chemicals and Thailand, sniffed out lies in the company of truths, and sobbed our childhood away witnessing some very bad Santas. “Yes Virginia,” indeed! It was a white hot race to the finish as the deadly duo of Team Name nearly ran away with the lead after dominating every round. But those sick and twisted dreamers at Donald Trump/Jar

You All Just Had to Remind Me About Encino Man...
Matt

Salutations, loyal quizzers! Tonight, we matched a few movies with their tweet-able descriptions, beat the odds with a 50/50 round, and got all sorts of old-school funny feels with some Sesame Street parodies. Everything’s A-OK, indeed! We all learned a valuable lesson about joker strategy, as most of you opted to wait until Round 8 before double-point deployment; however, nearly everyone had a higher score for Round 2. It just goes to show that…um…well I guess it doesn’t really show anything. Rounds 2 and 8 are like respective boxes of chocolates. You never know whatcha gonna git! Although the powerhouse of Robert Loggia claimed the

Losing Our Balance on the Parallel Bears
Matt

Happy homecoming quiznaton! It was good to be back in the saddle again at my post, and great to see your eager faces yet again after a brief absence. It sounds like y’all went pretty easy on Jamie, so thanks for saving your collective sass for my triumphant return. Tonight, we hurried through some haughty homophones, managed a few state-movie match-ups, and somehow survived the worst reggae audio round in human history. Jah Jah save us, indeed! It was a rollicking race to the finish line, with more than half of tonight’s rounds worth a potential 32 post-Joker points. Bass to Trout and Call Me 303-808-3797 were neck-and-neck

Race Cars Lasers Aeroplanes
JamieAnderson

Tonight, Matthew let me substitute for him at CB & Potts, which is conveniently located super close to my office, meaning that three of my coworkers and one of their partners came down to play/cheer me on -- and just in case nepotism is a concern of yours, unlike Bourbon France, I didn’t let them win (or assume the throne). In fact, we wound up with a tie for first place between two teams who I had never met before. I was impressed with (nearly) everyone’s performance on round 3, which was identifying if a quote came from Karl Marx or Bernie Sanders. Apparently most of the quizzers are experts in

I'm an archaeologist. The Shroud of Turin dates to ca. AD 1300, evolution is really real but more complex than you probably know, and no, I don't have a particularly strong interest in identifying the thing you dug up out of your backyard that you think is totally a Native American burial item/pirate gold/Roman pottery. And no, I don't dig up dinosaurs, but I did once read this other book, by a guy named Bakker*, and that plus repeated viewings of Jurassic Park and Indiana Jones inspired adolescent me to get into the "boot sciences" as a certain Norwegian archaeology professor calls them. Now I'm living the dream. 

 

 

 

 

* The Dinosaur Heresies, by Robert Bakker -- out of date now but an excellent read just to watch someone with ideas exploding out of their head shake up their field.

Beware the Suspiciously Attractive Weather People
Matt

Hey you (yeah, you)! Tonight, we brushed up on our Huey history, explored the finer side of unibrow fashion in the media, and survived a rehash of Best Song winners. It's hard out here for a QM, indeed! We witnessed a truly inspiring performance by the 2-person powerhouse of 3,720 to 1, who swapped the top with We’re Not That Smart over and over until they emerged victorious with a final lead of 2 slim points. Honorable mentions to…everyone! There was only a 10-point spread for the top half of our teams, and all of you ended the night with at least 1 perfect round. Bravo! Those of us in the northwestern corner of the metro area

Stay in Your Own Damn Show
Matt

Hey there, chilly willies! Tonight, we got S-H-I-T-ty widdit, racked up big points courtesy of TV crossovers, and somehow made it through some simultaneously barftastic and yawn-worthy covers from Clay Aiken. American I-dull, indeed! As the night went on and the air cooled down outside, things were heating up at the bar. We ended up with an all-out sudden death brawl to decide first place, and the humbug hooligans of The War on Christmas won the night with a slightly closer (but still pathetically low) estimate of all-time Survivor competitors. Continuing the godless theme, I Don’t Even Believe in Jebus walked away with second, determined to

And Another Thing: Why Does He Have Pikachu's Tail?
Matt

Avast, ye scurvy quizdogs! Tonight, we settled in with some cinematic singles, called bullshit on a few expertly crafted GWD Shit Hollywood Stories, and polished off with some of the best put-downs in tv/film memory. Sick burn, indeed! It was a rollicking race to first place, as- awww, who am I kidding? A Sad Handjob had it in the bag from the get-go, with four perfect rounds and a Jokered #8 to seal the deal with a spread of 10. But props to everyone for staying the whole quiz! It warms me heart, especially as we approach a cold, unforgiving winter. We had one of my favorite super-not-sporty-at-all sports questions to wrap things up tonight: Name four

Lay Down Your Arms and Lend Me Your Beers
Matt

Why hello there, geeks o’ the Rockies! We had a real doozy of a time tonight, lemme tell ya. Thanks to the fervently insistent viewership of persons from neither Kansas City nor NYC, I was only permitted to practice my craft during commercial breaks between continuously replayed segments of guys throwing things, hitting things, or simply standing around in some grass. Thrilling, indeed! ANYway, it was a slow-going yet somewhat dramatic race to first place between our top five contenders. Pencils were thrown, precious beer was spilt, and lives may very well have been lost in dark-lit corners of the bar area. At the end, it came down to everyone’s performance

Flicks and Marty Forever and Forever 100 Years
Matt

Greetings, quizzers far and wide! Tonight, we stitched together sentences from a selection of celebrity names, prepared for therapy with some throwback nightmarish kid flicks, and held our rifles high as we waded through a round on war (while wondering what it was good for). Good God y’all, indeed! We had a doozy of a second round all about the legends of Woodstock that threw plenty of you young’uns, especially since they were all covers (and mostly not-very-great ones at that). But Humuhumunukunukuapua’a, The Originals, and Cock to the Future all performed admirably despite the loud crowds of
