And Then There Was Booing

It’s hard to identify the when last night’s Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia at Glass Nickel Pizza fell apart. It may have been when I decided to let Dorito Fingers use all the drink tickets they’ve ever collected at once. Or, maybe it was the lamprey question. Or maybe it was when Something, Something 420 started booing …

Verbal Kint

I want to make some joke about Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia taking flight at the Polish Falcon last night. But dang, I can’t even do that on Thursday morning. Also, I can’t verify such an event happened. Sure, I can see the score sheet, but those are just numbers in a spreadsheet. Anyone can put any …

Clementines, Back At It Again

  Regarding trivia at Glass Nickel last night, we’re not going to talk about how Neal of Fortune won with 107 points. Nor are we discussing Moony, Wormtail, Padfoot & Prongs ending the night with 77, or even Spoony Bardday, Becky and their 62 points. I don’t even want to think about the 58 points …

The Glass Nickel Winter League Banger

Here’s what we knew was going to happen last night: Neal of Fortune was going to win. They’ve had this thing wrapped since Labor Day. But there were so many things we didn’t expect: Who knew Neal of Fortune would also BRING prizes? Not me. But Alex showed up with Film Festival tickets for everyone. …

Finals week?

    Settle in, it’s going to be a wild couple of weeks on the trivia front. “Why?” You might ask, and I’ll tell you. You see this week is the league finals if you’re playing at Tracks Tavern or Glass Nickel Pizza. That means super rad prizes, extra giddy hosts and 12 rounds of …

Number Eight Seed, But Number One in Our Hearts

The good news is, the brutality that was trivia this week is done. The bad news is, it never gets any easier. And that’s not to say all the teams didn’t didn’t lay it on the line this week. Sure no one did well, and Madison had some particularly poor scores, and I think this …

The Catch Up

Right now you’re probably thinking, “Trivia post on a Monday. WTF?” Well believe it or not, I occasionally I have to earn a few loonies flexing my power of persuasion and marketing genius. Friday was just one of those days. So here I am now. Okay, the catch up. Thursday night at Glass Nickel was …

Trivia, Derailed

I can’t tell you when last night’s trivia started to go off the rails, but I can pinpoint the exact moment when I knew shit wasn’t going to right itself. It was round six. The Oscars round which no team doubled, and yet the average score in the room was 12.7 points. Compare that to …

The Middle of the Middle

  Clearly, the crew from Tracks is not falling for this this middling weeks league ennui rubbish. No no, they showed up in force last night. The regulars were in the house and a couple of new teams popped in, just to shake it up a bit. Of course, the players at The Tracks are …
