Jada

I’m Jada the Emcee and your NEW Quiz Master at Big Woods here in Bloomington IN and the thought for today is… “46.9% of the country didn’t vote…” So on to Pub Quiz! Like I said I am taking over for QM Ed at Big Woods and I couldn’t be happy we are all sorry to not get the pleasure of hanging with QM Ed, but the consolation prize is ME. Couple of random facts about me as a way of introduction: I’m in a Prince Tribute Band called Royalty, I just got married at the end of October & my favorite thing to geek out about is music & Star Trek TNG.   The quiz was great filled with awesome geeky teams huddled

Pancreas Kinda Sounds Like Penis, Right?
QM Ed

Chilly night in Bloomington last night, but the beergarden was decked with space heaters that turned even more heat onto our hot, hot quiz last night. And surprises were in large supply. Let’s recap: Round 1 – We Know Answers, We Have The Best Answers jumped to an early lead with 7 points in this round with answers so obvious, they almost couldn’t be right. (Hint: they were, you should go with your gut next time.) Round 2 – Who sang it better: the cover artist or the original artist? That would be too subjective a question for this audio round on cover songs, but Banana Stand objectively pulled into the lead with an

Sweater Weather
QM Ed

Indiana: where it doesn’t start to feel like September until mid-October. Last night’s quiz was in the beer garden under an assortment of patio heaters, and the chill wasn’t enough to turn away the 14 teams who came out to play. Round 1 – Current events rounds are typically dominated by the teams who read the news and not just adorable cat videos (citation needed). It Takes Two To Lose At Trivia and Jay Xenophobia were those two teams last night with the perfect scores for Round 1. Round 2 – Musicians who largely have nothing in common but the month of their birth. Geena Davis Is Commander In Chief must

Where’s Ed?
QM Ed

In each of the 15 team pictures from last night’s quiz at Big Woods, our humble Quizmaster Ed is hiding/photobombing/creeping. Can you find them all? Round 1 – Word scramble round with half of the teams scoring perfect 8s. Whiskey Kisses and Franklin Hall & Oates used their jokers early for 16 points this round. Round 2 – Our music round had a pretty wide range of scores, but Geena Davis Is Six Feet Tall was one measly point away from perfect score and used a joker to take the lead. Round 3 – It can be amusing when art imitates life, but it can be downright scary when you can’t tell

I’m Late, I’m Late, For A Very Important Date (With Quiz)
QM Ed

Three out of our eleven teams last night referenced the fact that they showed up in the middle of the first round. Fortunately, they all chose different ways to express their lateness or we would have had to solve it Thunderdome-style (wait, that actually might have been really cool). We also got to hear the microphone stylings of QMiT Jada, who will be taking over for me once she gets through her wedding madness in October. She is going to be awesomesauce, you guys. Round 1 – Silence is golden, and silent letters in words are part of why the English language is such a giant pain in the ass. Geena Davis with the perfect score. Round 2 –

We Interrupt Your Regularly-Scheduled Blog For A Word From These Puppies
QM Ed

We had a great turnout for our quiz at Big Woods last night, as well as two great auditions from a couple of future QMs. You’re going to have to take my word for it, because in all the excitement I forgot to take pictures. I present, for your amusement, some pictures of the adorable dogs in my life. Annie is a Chihuahua who was rescued by my mother while she was out walking Quincy, the yellow Lab. No chip, no tags, and she was pregnant. Eight healthy puppies later, and my wife and I decided to bring the little fluffball Howard home. A year and a half later, Howard and my wife were walking the neighborhood when a Jack Russell mix started hanging around. When they came home, he

You Get An Emmy, And You Get An Emmy… EVERYONE GETS AN EMMY!!!
QM Ed

This QuizMaster made the trip to Bloomington last night for a great night of quiz at Big Woods. Even though I’m a stranger in these parts, the staff and quiz crowd are always wonderful and welcoming to this 40-something-in-a-college-town. Round 1 – Robot cars, political intrigue, and planes landing on the Hudson: this round on current events gave us three perfect scores from What's Geena Davis Up To These Days?, We Know Answers, We Have The Best Answers, and blacked out. Round 2 – Each pair of artists in this round have something in common, but none of them are Common. What's Geena Davis Up To These Days? pulled

Huey Lewis and the Food
QM Ed

Great turnout for quiz last night at Big Woods Brewing Company. What was even better was the duck-fat fried pork tenderloin, as prepared by Chef Dan in the kitchen. If you have not experienced the  joy that is a pork tenderloin sandwich (the state food of Indiana), you should start with this one, as you will measure every other tenderloin against this one. Accompanied by delicious, parmesan-crusted kettle chips, this will need there standard by which you measure every other pork tenderloin that you might try.   Also, if you are interested in listening to music that fewer people my age (e.g. people who grew up in the '80s) listen to on their Spotify accounts,

The Swamp Thing
QM Ed

Last night I had the pleasure of hosting the quiz at Quaff On/Big Woods Brewing Company in Bloomington, IN. QMIT Beth joined me to check out the venue and see what quiz looks like at other venues. I picked her up at her apartment, and we started the lovely journey down State Road 37 through the rolling hills and lush greenery. The air conditioning in the car kept us cool and comfortable. When we stepped out of the car around 8:00pm, the humidity slapped us in the face like the tongue of an enormous dog. I felt every pore in my body begin to silently weep, as my shirt gradually saturated. I couldn’t have been any moister if I had jumped in a pool. Competition was very

So Long, Farewell, You Know the Drill
Sarah B.

My last night as the Quaff On Quizmaster was one for the books, and it was very fitting that the team who has been dominant during my entire tenure, and one of my favorite regular teams, walked away with the victory. Congrats to Addicted to Ketamine! Even a man down, you managed to strike fear into the hearts of the Quaff On Geeks. The Round 1 category, Recently In Stuff, is always a crowd favorite, and scores were very high (as usual). That Makes My Taco Pop and Addicted to Ketamine both got off to strong starts, with perfect, jokered Round 2s.

We'd All Rather Be Watching Gymnastics
Sarah B.

For the first time ever, everyone started off last night’s quiz with one point, as a spectator who missed the “please don’t yell out answers” instruction informed the whole bar that Communists understand baseball in Cuba. So free point for everyone! Luckily, there were no other incidents, so it was a clean game from there on out. Frankly, I thought the “Torn” cover wasn’t half bad, and I’ll be purchasing it on iTunes shortly. We had quite a few ticky-tack questions that I got a little bit of flak for, including only accepting “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” and “The Road Not Taken” as answers. I insist

Clearly Not Gen Con Attendees
Sarah B.

We were back in the garden last night, and much to my surprise, Indiana had cooled to a habitable temperature. This made for a very pleasant night of quizzing! Super Glassive Black Hole got off to a huge lead by jokering a perfect Round 2, though Zikachu, I Choose You was on their tail pretty much all night. Meanwhile, Everything But Sports and #BobbyKnightMoves (an underrated team name, considering it combines two of my favorite Bloomington icons—our beloved former basketball coach and our skeevy strip club) battled it out for third and fourth. I was glad to see a Clue question in the mix, as I had

Inclement Weather
Sarah B.

Due to inclement weather, Geeks in the Garden had to be moved indoors last night, but even with the slight change in venue, a good time was had by all! As usual, Round 1 scores were off the charts. Round 2 proved to be more of a struggle, although everyone was relieved when I explained that every song came out in an election year. I swear, I have never been jeered at as hard as I was when I announced that we would require year of release in the answer for Round 2. But the round was a real crowd pleaser; I don’t think I’ve ever heard Quaff On break out into song to complete the lyrics to Round 2 before. Glass Effect had a little bit of a scare during our
