Joan Jett is My Spirit Animal
Tina the Bold

This was a Quiz that started with a teary-eyed Quizmistress.  My thanks go out to all teams, to the Sloan’s Staff, and to everyone that made me be a better person.  Phil’s pre-Quiz talks and dinner improved my condition by a long shot; hugs from Ashley, council from Morgan; whisky from Krista; Hip-Hop from Danielle: all of everything was a help.  And snow leopard kitties was a much-needed moment of joy.  The stress of Identity Theft combing with the IRS and Social Security qualms was overwhelming and yet the Quiz went on.  Sometimes I don’t know how to ask for help, and I thank you all for your support.  When one doesn’t know where to ask,

Matryoksha Dolls of Putin and Gacy
Tina the Bold

It’s not a normal Wednesday without a little Revolution, so the Quiz went on with all people engaged.  We laughed with hope, and we called out the problems; we drank the delicious Epic Sour IPA, and sipped the whisky.  And we decried all that is Trump.  Was that an “afterthought”?  Well, the Quiz has never fired an FBI Director, so…   We Comedy our way (wait, was that a word?) through the rounds, with only three teams Jokering round two— we were in for a long test.  It’s Funny Because It’s Treason took 1st, and gave me some Trotsky.  By which I mean, I’d rather trot

Michaelangelo's Snow Angels and Gender Studies
Tina the Bold

Some Quizzes arrive on days that perfectly articulate Spring, and this was one of them.  New beginnings, blood oranges, and social dynamism were all in play.  We discussed the merits of Barbie and her variegated boxes, as well as pig-to-human heart transplants; we touched on the impermanent beauty of Michealangelo’s Snow Angels, and found two perfect Jokers in round two.  This might just sound like the most interesting Quiz in the World!   Holding 1st place with fierce determination, Fuck No, I’m Doing This embodied my motivation for the night.  They held off Shed the Gnarwhal by ten points, which

Free Beer Always Trumps the Trump!
Tina the Bold

So the Quiz happened last night, and the World is getting ready to change.  We laughed and hugged; drank and had water.   We are always ready for the best and rarely caught unprepared.  It was a bit of a shoot-out for the final scores, but NOM took the cake!  On a warm almost summer night, we had enough teams to fill the space, and Sloan’s was the place to be.  Somewhere between the work week, we always find a way to make the Wednesday pure delight.   Going into the later rounds, And Then There Were 3 went head-strong into 2nd, taking said place by a mere point.  This meant the (100)

Whisky Should Be Tax Exempt
Tina the Bold

Welcome to the Quiz after Taxes!  I have been waiting for this for a few months—Morgan swore off drinking during Tax Season, so this brought a healthy return to whisky for all of us.  Once again (we toasted him during Quiz), I commend his patience and sense of thoroughness during this season.  Now that it is over, we can all appreciate the effort and self-restraint that goes into his work.  I was talking with a friend earlier, and we conceded that just as during the Olympics, everyone feels like they could make the tax system better during Tax Season.  It’s pretty much a clusterfu@$ of special interests and investments that out-weigh my personal wealth

Jesus Was a Jew
Tina the Bold

Wednesday arrives regardless of the Rockies’ Opening Day festivities, and this being immersed in a Holy Week it was a casual Quiz.  And I say “casual”, because we still had the hot mess of Mr. Spicer trying to make non-racist sense about the Holocaust on Passover.  Truly, he could have walked across the street to the Holocaust Museum.  Or he could fly out to the Middle East.  Or maybe, he might have a conversation in New York over a bagel.  Shoot, he could even go online and note that he could purchase a t-shirt simply stating “F Hitler”—because he might be the only person who actually needs people to believe that he agrees that

A Toast to the Wiccan Chicken
Tina the Bold

This was an awesome Wednesday! I had to work this morning, and participated in an epic Technique Training.  I met up with Phil and we both enjoyed a delicious salad and BACON!  Then… duh… The Quiz!  We had the Germans, we had the laughter, we had the whisky, and we had the Alex.  If you’ve never met him and his friend Shelby, they are super rad.  I met him first downtown during a rare Happy Hour, and now he plays Quiz often.  It’s a rad function to know that even talking about the Quiz brings the intrigue and the challenge into someone’s life.  What could be more rad?  Well, only one thing.  The winners of this week’s

Stillborn Again? Beach Please!
Tina the Bold

It has been an emotionally sensitive last two weeks with me second-guessing the World.  That being the condition of my life, it was a truly game-changing kind of Wednesday.  I found affirmation in all kinds of spaces, and then headed into another packed house to Quiz.  Did we have a few more repeats than necessary?  Yes.  But we sang a solid Happy Birthday to Morgan, we had our Germans laughing, and Eric won another Beer Contest… and continued his sharing to give out beers and t-shirts (while keeping his portable growler).  If you’re ever in doubt as to how epic GWD at Sloan’s can be, I received the business card of and took a shot with the

"Come" is a Versatile Word
Tina the Bold

It was another packed Wednesday night at Sloan's, and Danielle was rocked!  I pu on the tunes of the last decade in Hip-Hop and we got to dancing and the tapped all the energy for the Quiz.  Let's quickly review those score before the Apple products kill me again. When I was a child, the NES had that wonderfu fidget game we called "Tetris".  I was learning Russian, and I was convinced that perfect scores would give a message from the U.S.S.R. in Cyrillic.  Yes, I'm old.  But on the up-side, my 10th birthday was to celebrate the fall of the Berlin Wall, and I enjoyed a cake with candles on an airplane... and got to take my brother into the cockpit

Nobody's Day was Worse than Caesar's.
Tina the Bold

I think we covered just about every topic last night, from Acid trips and door melting experiences, to the absolute horror of the Khmer Rouge; from dancing with Thom and Beyoncé, to Dragon Fire and Dire Wolves.  When I explain the Quiz to outsiders, they probably think I’m crazy.  Alas, this is exactly what makes a Wednesday so phenomenal!  We laughed to fake Chewbacca tunes and discussed the quality of fine literature during the Cold War.  And to remind everyone:  a number of us danced with Thom to Beyoncé, and it was liberating. It’s been a rough week for a number of us, so let’s start this with sending all the positivity and

The Saddest Feature of GOT is its Total Lack of Duck Tales
Tina the Bold

Wow!  It was another packed house at Sloan’s this Wednesday, and it makes me so happy to see so many Geeks ready to Drink.  We addressed the cheating issue of last week, and because we are so old… I am glad to note that you are all approved to have a cell phone out on the table because YOU ARE ALL PLAYING WITH INTEGRITY.  Or playing with a beer.  That being said, when the bar is full, it is loud, and we hit a record 31 repeats during the Quiz.  Alas, one can’t win it all.  What can we win?  Conversations about gender, sexuality, and how seeing red is a reminder of what people can do for people.  We are nothing without respect and each

Never Tell Me Again: "He burnt a doughnut."
Tina the Bold

Woo-woo, Wednesday!  It was another packed night at Sloan’s, and we began the night with a new Beer Sponsor and a lot of awesome energy.  We were reminded about how long ago iTunes came into being, and learned who did and did not participate in Amnesty International during High School.  Everyone was exposed to my deep love of “Notting Hill” and my deep loathing of Quiz cheats.  And to that last point, this was a rare Wednesday.  I have only had to address cheaters a few times in Geekdom, and I thank you all for helping handle it positively.  While this is a sometimes challenging drinking game, it is predicated on integrity.  It is widely

What a Wednesday!  This Quiz rocked, and with a full house we proceeded to crush it.  Was it the promise of snowy days that kept everyone at Quiz?  Is everyone amping up for Geek Bowl  XI?  Or was it that super delicious chance at the Odell Brewing tour, with a day of tasting all those Northern Colorado beers compelling us all to enjoy the drinks that come with Geeks?  Well, I know I’m excited about all of those options!  Deme was the ultimate winner of the Odell prize, and he will be setting that date post Geek Bowl—if he’s real lucky, his team will win Geek Bowl too!

Remember: NEVER Shake a Baby
Tina the Bold

This Wednesday’s Quiz began with a fantastic meeting with Ton from Odell Brewing in Fort Collins.  Next weeks’ Beer Sponsor drawing will have the absolute coolest prize, so I encourage you to drink all the 90 Schilling, all the Runoff Red, and enjoy the thrilling chance at a full VIP tour of the brewery, complete with shuttle service and a mini tour of the beer of northern Colorado.  I can’t even win this, and I am so excited to see who gets the prize!  If you ever need an excuse to drink delicious Colorado beers, this is one heck of a motivator.  So cross your fingers and raise your pints—we are set to have a group of happy campers next week!

Fievel and the Pursuit of Deez Nuts
Tina the Bold

This week had so much crazy-stupid going on that it was a breath of relief that greeted all of us with the Quiz.  The final kicker?  We caught Deme on a Birthday Quiz—despite his attempts to obscure it, we finished the Quiz with a rousing “Happy Birthday”.  Now, mind you, I’m finally coming off the incessant colds, so singing in a microphone was a real struggle.  Thankfully we had a number of teams to sing along… and so Deme had no choice but to smile and drink whisky.  I received a few updates regarding the Mousekewitz family and the concern for detained refugees.  We can confirm that there are plenty of cats in America,

I Was Forced to Use a Hashtag More Than Once
Tina the Bold

Just a general question:  has anybody else been catching every cold and flu this season?  I’ve caught myself wondering how this season has ransacked my immune system.  Perhaps I was lucky over the last decade, and now it’s simply time to catch up?  Is this my proverbial just desserts for not getting a flu vaccine, or is this my chance to appreciate the weird weirdness of Robotussin and DayQuil?  Well, suffice to say that I look forward to beer and whisky.  It feels super strange to host the Quiz with a cup of hot water in my hands. While that freezing drizzle coated everything under ice, we took the Quiz by storm.  Thom was back in town
