Ask not what your country can do for you...
Major Tom

I find it interesting how things become super popular and then sort of fade away. Some things take a while, and some go fast. A lot of the time, these popular topics are reflected in the team names at Quiz. Last week, almost half of the team names at my other venue were about Pokemon Go, and quite a few at the Crown were as well. One week later, there are no Pokemon names, but a virtual avalanche of team names referencing Melania Trump and her plaigiarized convention speech. I'm assuming that trend will not outlast the week either. I had considered, as a joke, just copying a big chunk of a Michelle Obama speech for this Blog. I thought better of it, but to be honest, I have quite a bit in

Back, but not necessarily in Black.
Major Tom

It's been little while since we've shared a Quiz together. I was on vacation for a while, then the Crown hosted a themed Quiz that most of the Crown regulars didn't come to, then the Crown was closed for renovation. They were almost closed last night, but the work was finished just in time for Quiz. It was good to see you all. I missed you. I'm assuming you missed Dini and me as well, since you all showed up ready for some serious Quiz action last night. It's nice to be back. It was a little strange, though. A bit awkward, in fact. After four years of being in our Quizmaster nook, things have changed in a big way for us. Our nook has now turned into a server station. Where there used to be

That Quiz 30 Rocked! (Sorry. That was terrible.)
Major Tom

I've been the Quizmaster for quite a few themed Quizzes over the years. Most of them have been the really geeky stuff. Sci-fi, fantasy things like Star Wars, Star Trek, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, things like that. They're pretty much guaranteed successes. I've also done a Disney Quiz. Also a guaranteed success. I've done a couple of sitcom Quizzes. I did Arrested Development once when th show was ending, and then again when it was being resurrected on Netflix. The show was current in the minds of people, so people came out in droves. I did Community too, when it was still a good show, and people came out for that one too. So this time I was assigned the 30 Rock Quiz. I thought, sure, that

How Did You Manage To Put On Pants?
Natasha Noir

That is my question to the "gentleman" who threw a fit over not having an electric pencil sharpener. The fact that you have to crank your hand manually is just too much for you? That is a form of laziness I have never encountered. But then to gripe about the bonus not being fair because you weren't the first one with your answer raised, I now see that you have an actual need to be an asshat. Meh, I'm not upset, but I do like to call out people who should really exercise better manners. Dini and I rocked it out last night with a super full house at Canyon's Crown and you're welcome. It was a seriously great group of geeks last night, funny team names and lots of laughter, I'll

Adventure Time, with Finn and PedoBear
Mitchicus Mathematicus

It was great to see all of you at The Crown for another lovely night of quiz. Of course, a couple things seemed slightly askew. Awry, catawampus even. Firstly, I'm not Tom. I am Mitchicus Mathematicus, but some of you know me just as Mitch. I have been playing at The Crown for over three years, and while I have my own venue that I will not speak of here, The Crown will always have a place to call home. Secondly, today was Scorekeeper Dini's birthday! She turned the big [redacted] and was ready to celebrate. Of course, we had to get through a little thing called quiz. So where is Tom?

Howdy, all. Mitch here. I'm an Arizona-grown U of A alum with a job teaching students that Math doesn't have to suck. I've been quizzing with friends for three years and have been loving it ever since. Now as a QM, I just need to work on the whole talking and blogging thing. 

I am a huge retro gamer. I should have won the Star Fox Weekend leather jacket as a kid, and I did win a Nintendo Wii playing Guitar Hero. I'm sadly lacking in knowledge of all the "cool" games kids play these days, but I'm still down with the classics. I'm also a fan of bad movies and mozzarella cheesesticks. 

Other life accomplishments include being published in "Highlights" magazine, going on Wheel of Fortune, meeting Walter Jones the power ranger, beating Super Metroid in 80 minutes with 100% completion, and never going to Senior Prom.

As we all roast in our beloved home of Arizona, I'd just like to tell you all something. I'm going on vacation to the Canadian Rockies. Haha. Sorry I can't take you all with me. Well, actually I'm not really sorry I can't take all of you. Just that one really attractive girl. You know the one. I'm sorry I can't take her. The rest of you, well, enjoy your hotter than hell weather. I'll see you all soon. That being said, I have to pack and take care of a bunch of other stuff before I leave.

We don't whistle while we Quiz.
Major Tom

The number of people who came to the Crown for Quiz last night was surprisingly large. Why surprisingly, you ask? Well, we were opposite the Disney themed Quiz. I have been announcing the Disney Quiz for quite a few weeks at both of my venues, and I didn't hear a lot of enthusiasm for it, so I thought it might turn out to be one of the lower-attended Quizzes. Boy, was I wrong! Venues all across the country were breaking attendance records. Here in Tucson, the venue was completely full and they had to turn away teams. I guess it was just an enormous Quiz with an extremely wide appeal. Well, Disney is a feel-good type of thing that inspires people to sing spontaneously and brings out people's

The biggest mistake in Canyon's Crown quiztory!
Major Tom

If you read my Blog every week, you know that I always make fun of my Quizzers' mistakes. Most of the time, that means really bad answers. However, there are times when there are other mistakes I make fun of. For an example, on Wednesday, I had a team of regulars try to get away with having 7 team members. One tried to sneak off when I came to take team pictures. Busted! I think that the biggest mistake in recent memory though, was last night's second place team. As Dini and I were packing up waiting for the winning teams to come up and get their prizes and get the pictures taken, we realized that there was no one left in the building except the employees and us. The second place team had

Scorekeeper Dini was back in the scorekeeper's chair last night. Her surgery went well and she's feeling much better. Thanks to Lindsey for subbing for her for the last two weeks. She did a great job, but it's really great to have Dini back. She does so much to make the Quiz run smoothly. She helps set up and tear down, she helps newbies figure out how the Quiz works, she runs the music, takes pictures of the winning teams, and does so many other little things that make my job easier and makes the whole thing work. She's also the best scorekeeper in the business and she's just fun to work with. We're lucky to have her at the Crown. On her first night back after being sliced open and

Thanks for coming, schweinhunden!
Major Tom

Be careful what you wish for. Last week, it was a strangely small crowd at the Crown. There was literally no one on one side of the center wall. No one in the back room, no one on the patio. It seemed as if we were the lonely survivors of the zombie apocalypse, entertaining ourselves with trivia as the dead roamed outside the pub, waiting for us to come out and be eaten. It was eerie. So, I said in last week's Blog that I wanted everyone to come back to Quiz the next week, and tell all their friends to come as well. That is exactly what happened. The Crown was completely out of control last night. Every seat was taken. The bar was full, the back room was full. They had to bring out folding

Nothing like an English pub on Cinco de Mayo!
Major Tom

Last night was Cinco de Mayo. Ask anyone what Cinco de Mayo is all about, and 999 out of a thousand people will tell you either that it's Mexican Independence Day, or that they have no idea, but they like to go out and get drunk. It is not Mexican Independence Day. That is a completely different holiday. Cinco de Mayo actually commemorates a Mexican victory over invaders from France. As new Quizmaster Jeff the Chemist stated, "Historically speaking, defeating France isn't really that big of a deal." I replied that France was no creampuff. I said that Germany couldn't get anything done against France from 1914 through 1918. France opened up a can of whoop-ass on England in 1066. And I think

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!

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
