Four years, and they haven't fired me yet!
Major Tom

Last night was my four year Quizziversary at the Canyon's Crown. That's pretty amazing, really. It doesn't seem like that long, until I really start thinking about it. Four years is longer than the longest relationship I've ever been in, by two years. It's a year longer than I've been at my current day job, and I'm leaving that day job for a different one. It's longer than I lived in any apartment after I left my parents' house. It's longer than the American involvement in World War Two. Longer than the Civil War. Longer than the reign of King Tut. Longer than Kennedy's presidency. It's a serious milestone. One of the other Quizmasters on the QMs Facebook page what she should do for her Quizziversary

The Blog formerly known as...the Blog.
Major Tom

We had an absolutely crazy ending to Quiz last night.  We have had ties for first place before, which we break with a five-question tiebreaker.  We have had ties for second place before, which we break with a dart throw.  But last night, we had a three-way tie for first place.  Normally, these end in a one-point difference in the tiebreaker, so I actually expected that we would choose a winner, and then have to throw darts to choose a second-place winner.  That didn't happen, though, and the tie was broken 4-3-2.  Pretty exciting stuff! A lot has been said about this year being terrible. Indeed, quite a few beloved celebrities have died in a short amount

Jeff the Chemist becomes Jeff the Quizmaster
Major Tom

The Quizzing career of Jeff the Chemist is a long and storied one. You've heard at least some part of it, I'm sure. His was the team that earned a perfect score of 96 last week. That never happens. It was the talk of the GWD Quizmaster Facebook forums. Five years ago, when I first heard of Geeks Who Drink, there were but three venues in Tucson that had Quiz. There are now twelve, and soon there will be thirteen. It used to be that Club Congress was on Tuesday, the Auld Dubliner was on Wednesday, and Bumsted's was on Thursday. I began by playing at Congress. I was absorbed into a team that had been playing for a little while, and we were really good. Most of the time, however, we were beaten

Sorry, parents!
Major Tom

I've talked about this before, but I'm going to do it again. I am a Quizmaster at two different clubs. My Wednesday club is a rowdy college bar on University. Thursday is a family-ish restaurant/bar. Wednesday is early all regulars who know what they're getting. Thursday, there are always a bunch of people who have never played Quiz before. Usually some elderly folks. Frequently there are kids present. I have absolutely no idea why, but the Wednesday Quizzes are always squeaky clean. They don't need to be. I read it to a bar full of drunk college kids and twenty-somethings. Thursday, however, is the day that the writers apparently save their filthiest material for. A question with the f-word

I feel like I got gypped by having Quiz on March 31st.  My other club was yesterday, March 30th. Also lame.  See, had one of my Quizzes been just a day or two later, I could have used April Fool's Day to inspire my Blog.  I could have completely screwed with you guys last night, asking fake questions, giving out invalid drink coupons, reading standings in the wrong order, buying you guys awful drinks made with questionable ingredients, announcing that the Crown was cancelling Quiz, etc.  I could have announced that Dini was in need of an appendix transplant and asked for donations.  I could have released hundreds of rats in the Crown.  I could have organized a

Visitors aplenty!
Major Tom

It struck me that some of you guys might not have realized that St. Patrick's Day only lasts for one day. The Crown cancelled Quiz on St. Patrick's Day because it would have been too difficult to run a Quiz amongst all the throngs of people trying to get drunk and rowdy. The thing is, the turnout last night was relatively small, as if a whole bunch of you assumed that the St. Patrick's Day celebrations were ongoing. That would be a wrong assumption. The Crown was open and Quiz was happening. You all should have been there. Maybe some of you really overdid it last week and were still nursing the hangover to end all hangovers. I don't know. My two Quiz venues have really benefited from

No green beer with your Quiz
Major Tom

St. Patrick's Day is a holiday that was probably something religious way back when. Now, it's an excuse to go out and get blitzed. I'm not going to lie. I've celebrated a few St. Patrick's Days in my time. I'm significantly mellower nowadays, and to tell the truth, I'd rather not leave my house on March 17th anymore. I don't want to deal with drunks, cops, and jerks making leprechaun jokes. I don't need to step over passed out frat boys or piles of vomit to get to the restroom or the bar. I also have gotten to old to want to have to beat anyone's ass anymore. So, when I realized that next Thursday was St. Patrick's Day, I was a little apprehensive about running a Quiz. Not that the Crown is

The Quiz needs more metal.
Major Tom

A quick word about jokers... As clearly stated in my introduction, the joker may only be circled once per game. If you could double your score on every round by circling the joker on every round, everyone would do it, and the effect of the joker would be completely nullified. I'm looking at you, Team Who Jokered Every Round Last Night. If you know me at all, you know I'm a big music fan. I'm a VJ on Heavy Metal Television.

Sumatra. By far.
Major Tom

I feel like there were some serious mistakes made last night. I'm not just talking about the weird math with a 17 point round. I'm not just talking about the sooner or later round and the second audio round being way too easy. I'm not just talking about Java not being anywhere near the largest island in Indonesia. I'm talking about Quizzers not putting their names on their answer sheets. I'm that teacher who throws papers in the trash when they get turned in without a name on them. One team even turned in a sheet that was all crumpled up. That's just asking for a trashcan. You are all so lucky to have Dini as your scorekeeper. She's way nicer than I am. I think it comes from her being a tech

The GWD Drinking Game
Major Tom

Last night's Quiz had some really interesting rounds. First off, Round 3 was a real or shit round about beers. The real ones all sounded spectacular. A stout made from digested coffee beans taken from elephant crap, an Icelandic ale flavored with sheepdung-smoked whale testicles, a dark ale brewed with pig heads and bones, and a witbier brewed with yeast taken out of a weevil encased in amber? I think we all know what the Canyon's Crown will be ordering next week! Mmmmm.... Round 4 gave you drinking games, and you were to name the TV show they would go with. It got me thinking. Could we do a Geeks Who Drink drinking game? Let's do it! Here is how it will work: Drunk ass sitting at the bar

Major Tom

Twice a year, teachers have parent-teacher conferences. Last night was that night. As if I wasn't a busy enough dude, I had to do the Blog from my other venue after Quiz Wednesday night, then sleep a little, then go to work. After work, I had to stay to meet with parents until the last possible moment before I had to haul ass all the way across town to the Crown for Quiz again. I could not stay awake to do this Blog last night after Quiz, so I'm sitting here after work writing it now. No big deal, right? Well, normally no, but this time, I am about to leave to drive up to Vegas. Black Sabbath is playing, and the way things have been going with older rock stars recently, I figured I had to

Butter! (It's not just to describe your girlfriend's face any more.)
Major Tom

You probably noticed that Scorekeeper Dini was not at Quiz last night. Or, alternatively, maybe you thought that Dini had put on a ton of weight, lost most of her hair, and got really ugly in the space of a week. For those of you who thought that, you were wrong. That was Caribbean Joe on scorekeeping duties last night. Dini was in a car accident, so I looked for a sub at the last minute. Joe stepped up to the plate. While I appreciate Joe helping out, it was also an opportunity for a couple of firsts. It was the first time my scorekeeper has ever yelled, "Up yours!" to the Quizzers. It was also the first time that a team name was changed at each scoring break to add a vulgar joke about me

How many bands can you name that Paul Rodgers was in?
Major Tom

I want to explain to you guys what happened during the first scoring break. As I went around to take team pictures, several of you guys complained that it was the longest scoring break ever. It was indeed too damn long. However, I would like to tell you exactly why it was that long. As you probably know, I use the scoring  break to get to know my Quizzers and socialize a bit. It makes it a more personal experience, and I think for the most part, you guys enjoy it as much as I do.  Sometimes, Dini will finish scoring, and I will still be talking to a team.

This Saturday is the X-Files themed Quiz. I always enjoy themed Quizzes, whether I am hosting them, or whether I am just playing them. Of course, being an employee of Geeks Who Drink, I am ineligible to win the money at a themed Quiz, but I just like the whole idea of a big group of people collectively geeking out over a shared interest. I have hosted Arrested Development twice, The Godfather/Goodfellas/Sopranos, Game Of Thrones, Disney, Community, Star Trek, Star Wars, and Doctor Who. I may be forgetting one or two. I've played Harry Potter, baseball, The Walking Dead, Marvel, and Seinfeld. I may also be forgetting one or two of those. I even started writing a James Bond Quiz, but I ended

How you quiz reveals a lot about you.
Major Tom

Quiz is like an interesting psychological experiment sometimes. First of all, there are the team names. The team names give a real insight into what news stories struck a chord with the Quizzers, or what dead celebrity made an impression. Last night, Alan Rickman dominated the team names. There was surprisingly little reference to David Bowie. What does that say about you guys? You're more movie fans than music fans? I don't know. What I do know is that of all of Alan Rickman's spectacular characters, his role in Galaxy Quest holds a place in your hearts more than any other. There were seriously four teams with almost identical names. By Grabthar's Hammer, that was ridiculous! At least one

Major Tom

It had been a few weeks since we had been able to enjoy Quiz at the Crown with all of you. I missed all of you. Scorekeeper Dini missed you. We missed the food and the beer at the Crown. We missed the friendly staff. And most of all, we missed the money that we would have made had Quiz not been cancelled. Stupid holidays, falling on a Thursday. Well, it appeared that for whatever reason, you guys missed Quiz at the Crown as well, because it was a full house last night. Twenty-two teams! Not too shabby for a freezing cold, pouring rain, kind of night! Since Quiz was cancelled on New Year's Eve, I hope you all had cool plans to make up for it.  New Year's Eve is a strange holiday.
