Spirited Away: Or, It's a Negroni, Ya Jabroni
Matt

Hello, Broomfield brethren! Tonight, we blew the dust off our Bibles, correlated some cocktail creations, and zoomed through a round all about that zany latter letter. Zoinks, indeed! The top three spots were separated by ONE. POINT. EACH. That should tell you what kind of fierce game play we were working with. Teams rose, teams fell, teams endlessly modified their names in annoyingly accurate fashion (looking’ at you, We Missed Round One). Most of you seemed to have left your Biblical scholar friend at home, since only three teams were able to put up more than five points in Round 3, including our eventual first place winners, 3,720 to 1, who

Ubermensch vs. The Super Friends
Matt

Top of the evening to ya! We had a rollicking good eight rounds tonight, due in no small part to the robust display of enthusiasm from a few long-forgotten regulars who graced us with their presence once more. Welcome back, ya filthy animals. On top of that, the first-timers just keep coming; we quizzed the night away with newbies making up nearly half of our teams. Seems like the free advertising is starting to pay off, so in the future, if your team is looking to be a bit lighter than you'd like, invite anyone and everyone to join the funstivities down at the ol' CB&P bar (aka Thunderdome). What can be said of our first place winners, I Only Use

Feels, Feels Everywhere
Matt

Greetings, pub patrons! Tonight, we stitched together a sampling of celebs, figured out a few tunes that hit us right in the feels, and got flustered over some famous Frogs. We even endured some unbearable commotion from the side room, which seemed to be hosting a marathon screaming competition between a pack of pre-teen girls and their parents. Sacrebleu! We also had quite the ferocious battle play out in the CB&P Geeks Arena. Cheerio Tam Tam seemed poised to win it all until Atticus Trump deployed a classic Joker Finale move in Round 8 to not only secure first place, but simultaneously confuse decades of literary

Munchausen By Foxy
Matt

Hooray for newbies! In the midst of a week full of dreary (but refreshingly welcome) weather, the rain failed to dampen the fiery energy brought by a host of newcomers last night. A few regulars from back in the day even came to help us out as we joined pairs, jumped a few sharks, and celebrated Ringo's birthday in swingin' musical style.   We witnessed a triumphant surge in the standings from Screw Horses and The Antisocialites, who started off in the bottom five teams, but would end the night in first and second, respectively. Additional props to Screw Horses, Touch Me, Touch Me, Touch Me. and Wine

Don’t Worry Guys, the Password is Still “Fidelio”
Matt

Tonight, we perused some poppin’ Canadian parody tracks, navigated numerical movie titles, and scratched our heads to scrape together a few newly eligible Scrabble words. There was even a round of problematic Picasso-themed puzzles for you artsy-fartsy types.   Our bagel of an evening enjoyed a relatively even spread of brain matter, as most of you ended up with strikingly similar scores throughout all 8 rounds. Not too shabby, considering we had regulars and newbies alike turn out in teams ranging from full-size groups to solo ventures.   It seemed nothing could stop the mighty momentum of Sittler on the Booth and Double

Dinos, Donalds and Dolezals, Dear Quizzers
Matt

Huzzah! After last week’s quiz was called off on account of SPORTS, we gathered to conquer the bar once more in the name of QUIZ. To celebrate our glorious return to the Tuesday throne, I thought I’d skip the usual rant-o'-the-week and dedicate tonight's blog to you wonderful people.   We had all sorts of factabulous fun rampaging through rounds on movie reviews, self-fornication, and of course, 42. But it was the bold, brazen antics of you, the quiz-starved masses, that took the night to a whole ‘nutha level. Team names were flawlessly spun from a god-like command of topical humor. Jokers were

...My God, It's Full of Holes!
Matt

Goodness gracious, butter my butt and call me a biscuit, we somehow survived the night playing quiz during the NBA Finals. I was kindly asked beforehand to defer audio privileges while the game was on, and scenes of rampaging rebellion immediately raced through my mind. Imagine my pride when not a single quizzer and/or b-ball fan came to blows at any point, even after an hour-long 4th quarter! Your true colors came out in some sneakily subversive team names, and we made a few converts out of LeBronners and Curryers alike, so I'll write this Tuesday evening off as an unexpected success.   We witnessed a come from behind win by LeBron Skips Legs Day after

Dignitas, Pietas, Gravytas
Matt

Salutations, Geek Nation!   Boy, did we have a rootin' tootin' good time last night. Not only did we get to enjoy rounds on "m-a-n" words, musical floaters, ethnic food and filmic excreta, but the dining room cleared early to give us TOTAL CONTROL of CB&P for the last few rounds! We wielded that power with spectacular grace, even as the race to first place really heated up going into Round 8. More than half of our teams saved their Joker to the very end for a last-ditch grab for glory, including 3rd place finishers Medical Unprofessionals, but a few near-perfect final rounds still couldn't compete with the sheer displays of early audio round domination

To Ball, Perchance to Dream
Matt

Howdy, quiz folks! We just about had the place to ourselves last night, and were free to dominate the bar with 8 rounds of missing persons, delusions, and oh so much more. Not to mention the unholy union of sex and physics. (F=ma, anyone...?)   The night started strong after a recent stuff recap in Round 1, then y'all done goofed as soon as Round 2 reared its ugly, cover band-y head. Renditions of a few smash hits brought to us by The Baseballs had all but four teams come in under the 5-point mark and begging for mercy. But, lo and behold! The remaining rounds averaged a modest 6 points all-around, and gave everyone a brief glimpse of hope on the horizon; that is,

To Condemn Them is My Real Test, to Ban Them is My Cause
Matt

I'll admit, the rain and cold had me somewhat worried about tonight's turnout. But thanks to some new recruits who came out for hot NBA and/or NHL playoffs action and stuck around to play quiz, we ended up with one of the biggest crowds of my fledgling QM career thus far. Yay sports!   Tonight, we paid geeky tribute to a dearly departed blues legend, debated the creepiness of love songs, and endured clips from some pretty painful sequels. Several teams remained neck and neck throughout the evening in a fierce display of competitive pandemonium. Man Getting Hit By Football, 3720 to 1, Wet Sprocket, and Pbbbbbt

If NASCAR-y Nonsense Be Somethin' Ya Wish
Matt

In tonight's rounds, we waxed philosophical (Lego-style), assembled adjectival answers, and carved through 8 creamy questions all about cake. It was a relatively modest turnout, but still chock-full of the usual cutthroat competitiveness that we've come to expect from regulars and newbies alike. En garde, Geek Nation!   We witnessed a rare 16-point A/V round, which was tactfully jokered by the ever self-deprecating Last Place for an eleventh hour 30-point surge. But it wasn't enough to topple the unshakable might of Tom Shady, who scored double digits in half of tonight's rounds and claimed first place at the end of it all by a mere

The Man with the Golden Schnoz

Home sweet home! After a brief stint in the tropics for a wonderfully undeserved vacation, I've returned to my duties as your humble servant for all things quiz. Big thanks to Scotty for covering the last two weeks! As of now, I'll be taking the reins at CB&P permanently, so get used to this punim, folks.   Tonight, we fought our way through feisty invertebrates, fake sports teams, fourth wall breakers, and the musical stylings of the Swedish Chef. All of our teams held their own, with a series of ties lasting throughout the night, right to the bitter end. Top props to I Wish This Microphone Were a Horse Cock for shouting their hyper-original team

The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

Super Happy Fun Time tonight!  19 teams tonight, everything was hopping, and everybody was quizzin' their hearts out!   Thanks to the new teams for playing, I always love to see first timers jump in the mix... A much more visual video round than last week, and love him or hate him, Tom Cruise can ruuunnnnnn! (At least in the movies...)  Congratulations to  No Scrubs  for hitting the top early and pushing forward into 1st Place.  Shut Up Mom, I'm Rioting took second, beating Baby Fark McGeezak (???) by one solid point.  Tonight was a tough one, with top scores in the 60's, kind

This is Why We Use Punctutation...
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

First off, thank you to all the teams for accepting me as a guest Quizmaster this week, and not shaming me for being "not Matt." I know I'm far short(er), but we had a great time at Quiz tonight!  Now, that video round... wow... This is why we invented punctuation to begin with. But, the teams turned their ears to fast-forward and succeeded in catching all the clues nicely. Clever Girl was just that most of the night, holding onto an early first place lead... But, like Ghosts will do, the Spooky Pirate Ghosts scared them into second with a almost-perfect Round 8. (Oh Round 8, what an enigma you are)... You guys

Fun Will Now Commence
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

Oh, what a night! We fearlessly faced the final frontier, endeavored to evaluate an eclectic ensemble of the elements, and deducted a deluge of dead movie dames. Oops, sorry; still feeling the fallout from that alliteration round last week. We began tonight's quiz by forming the purest of all communal bonds, that of Voyager fandom. The first round contained a most repugnant diss of the UPN underdog that informed my sense of intergalactic justice through age 11. I'll concede a few regrettable characters (here's lookin' at you, Neelix and Harry), but in exchange, we got Captain Mom, SaracastaDoc, and the most bad-ass Vulcan in recent memory. Plus, Jeri Ryan in future-spandex.  I'll

Quizzin' on the Sun
The Greatest Quizmaster Of All Time

Tonight, we expertly excelled at arranging alliteration, soared to new heights recalling TV name-dropping hits, and celebrated the career of Hollywood's favorite rehab case as he reached the big 5-0. While queuing the songs for Round 2, I remembered a particularly embarrassing childhood episode in which I sought to purchase...a Smash Mouth album. It was probably mid-'99; "All-Star" hadn't quite begun its inexplicable climb on the charts, and "Walkin' on the Sun" was the band's only marginal claim to fame at that point. The chill bra at the record store had never heard of the group, and assuming I probably meant Smashing Pumpkins, presented me with Siamese Dream and
