Continuing the costume theme this week...
Holly

Onesies are super comfortable, ya'll. Highly recommend. Anyway, on to the quiz! Beast Rebels of the Hellscape took first last night and second place went to Speed Kills Bears. Third place was a tie which ended up being decided by a really anticlimactic sudden death round. Not a bad send off for Introverted Whizkids as they lose two team members who have been regulars at the quiz for the past two years. Congrats on graduating but sorry to see you go. Bleu Barracudas, on the other hand, are probably less sorry to see their competition weeded out. Special shout out to Team Dick whose ever morphing

Last night, the Brit was invaded by animal onesies...
Holly

...I squatted some girls, participated in a human (animal?) pyramid, received some pretty decent Rick & Morty fanart, and, oh yeah, did some quiz stuff while I was at it. Pretty packed house and 10 teams competing. Han Solo's Homie recruited an additional team member, which was enough to move up to first place this week. Deez Nuts and Speed Kills Bears battled it out for second in a tie breaker, which went to Deez Nuts. Speed Kills Bears may have only taken third, but know you're first in my heart. Please come back in the onesies and let me squat more of you. I promise I'll do both of you girls at once! See you all next time!

This week animal hats, next week onesies...
Holly

...this is how you become a furry. Is it bad of me that I want to watch those movies with all the people that wrote the stupid reviews? All of you not unexpectedly did well recognizing the movies in that round, but I was surprised the worst round was the one on superheroes. I expected better of you. Congrats to Speed Kills Bears on their win and also their adorable animal hats. Next week, animal onesies! Second place went to Anemone's Enemies and third to Pussy Crushers. Honorable mention to Han Solo's Homie for multiple bonus question wins all by himself. See you all next week!

Quizzerella
Holly

Congrats again to Beast Rebels of the Hellscape - he didn't quite make first place this time although he did win most of the bonus questions. Speed Kills Bears barely edged him out for first (with a full team at their disposal so I wouldn't be too proud) and Introverted Whizkids took third (you should be even less proud). To the guys who were meeting up for the first time to do the quiz: that is a fantastic idea. Everyone should make this their first Tinder meeting of choice. You'd have plenty of opportunities to evaluate your date and how well you work together and I'd have plenty of opportunities to make things awkward. It's a win/win.

Congrats to Beast Rebels of the Hellscape...
Holly

...also known as that one dude in a suit at the bar, on winning last night's quiz all by himself. Good job on making everyone else feel both inadequate and underdressed. Speed Kills Bears took second and Tits + Valhalla may have placed third but at least they rocked all their Geeks Who Drink swag. I'm sure more things happened but too many people sent shots to my table last night. From the pictures it sure looks like we had fun though! Hope to see you all back next week! But without sending me shots - seriously, I have to do math, people.

Apparently I Have Terrible Taste In Music
Holly

It’s slightly demoralizing to listen to the audio round and enjoy all of the songs and then realize the round is on annoying vocals. Oh well. This quiz was close! Oddly, all the teams from 4th through 8th scored exactly 2 points apart. Third place went to Oh God, The Pressure! who managed to place by using their Joker wisely. Second place went to Speed Kills Bears and first to Alternative Facts. Not only did they win this quiz, they also recently won a whole box of Geeks Who Drink swag by answering the Question of the Day. I find this suspicious and will now be watching them closely in the future.

And Now We Don't Have Coasters Anymore
Holly

We're back on schedule with a newly refinished bar and fresh quiz supplies... which were promptly ruined by Introverted Whizkids. Between plotting to use sharp pencils as weapons and coasters as frisbees, you are the reason why we can't have nice things. Congrats to newcomers Blue Barracudas for winning almost every bonus question and taking 4th place at their first quiz. With a little more strategic Joker-ing, you're going to be some real competition. In the end, Steven Hawking's School of Dance took third place with Introverted Whizkids in second and Speed Kills Bears in first with

All These Answers Are Correct. Period.

...actually lived up to their team name more than once, including during Round 1 which was unexpectedly difficult. They took the lead and kept it, finishing in first. Speed Kills Bears took second and Introverted Whizkids placed third.   Reminder there is no quiz next week. We'll be back in February at the regularly scheduled day/time plus a shiny new bar.   Hope to see you all there!

Introverted Bears
Holly

The holiday resulted in a smaller quiz yesterday - which meant 1) people could actually hear the questions and 2) team mashups! Notably, Introverted Whizkid(s) and Speed Kills Bears who teamed together to take first place. Second was claimed by Disaster Machine and third technically went to Drinkers with a Trivia Problem, but they wandered off without claiming their pitcher of beer. Fourth place Victor tried to take it, but I held on to it for you if you come back within a reasonable amount of time. By which I mean while I can still

Congrats to Paid in Sunsets, the winners of the night. Not only did you win your first quiz but you're super humble about it judging by our blog post title. Second place went to Juicy Juche and third to Speed Kills Bears.   Special shoutout to My Entire Team Ditched Me, Including My Wife and I Thought This Was Speed Dating. Maybe the two of you can join forces next time? Sorry Wife, that's what happens when you skip the quiz.   Hope to see you all next time!

Inappropriate Touching & Interpretive Dance
Holly

...what a way to start off the New Year! Plenty of newbies and yet it was a smooth quiz - no shouting of any answers and the only incident, if you could call it that, was whatever the hell was happening on the dance floor during the audio round. Interpretive dance? (Failed) mating ritual? Seizure?? Special guests of the night were It's My Birthday Bitch. I'm not sure which one of them owned the Birthday Bitch, but I bought her a drink, so you're welcome. One of you might want to buy her a grammar guide for her gift and bookmark the section on punctuation rules. Hope to see all you new people back next week!

Last Quiz of the Year
Holly

Introverted Whizkids finished this year on a high note. They jumped from 5th place to 1st through an almost perfect Round 8 last night. The Other Guys were right behind in 2nd, followed by Speed Kills Bears in 3rd. There will be no quiz next Monday, so this will be the last quiz of 2016. Happy holidays and I'll see you in January!

Largest Quiz Ever!
Holly

On paper anyway. 17 teams on the scoresheet this quiz... and about 11 of them were actually real. Thanks, one guy that just wanted to use a different inappropriate team name each time. Actual teams include Team Discovery Channel who won, The Other Guys who placed second, Sofa King in third, and Dick Taste in tenth, whom you would assume was one of the fake teams, but sadly was not. See you all next time.

Baby Jesus in Da Hood...
Holly

...and Bethlehem & Eggs are unfortunately not songs that Spotify has 10,000 versions of, but good try, I Wish I Had More Friends. After those answers, I kind of wish I didn't crowdsource your team name and instead let you pick. Last night ended with The Other Guys in first place, Introverted Whizkids in second, and Team Discovery Channel in third. We also had (accurately named) T&A in fifth place, and (not accurately named which made me sad) Team Sea Otter in fourth. See you all next week.

My Liability Insurance Doesn't Cover This
Holly

Disclaimer: I am in no way responsible for any injuries sustained during drunk squatting for team photos.   Team 4+1 left with two third place gift certificates since they never claimed their prize back in September. When I said you guys could come back and get it, I meant like the next week. Not two months later. You're lucky I hate beer.   Second place went to Sofa King and first to Juicy Juche. I'm sorry I still can't pronounce your name. Thank you both for claiming your prizes in a timely fashion.   See you all next week when
