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

Welcome back! Here's a ridiculously huge job for you!
Major Tom

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

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

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 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 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.

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.

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
