The Year Was 2013…

For this week’s installment of Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia Classics we take you all the way back to December 2013. The best selling book was The New Testament by the mononymous Jesus. The Model T–the horseless carriage–was rolling off assembly lines in Detroit by the dozens and families were gathered around Guglielmo Marconi’s invention the radio, …

Blind on Blind

A lot of heat coming in over the last two days because someone wasn’t putting up trivia posts. Like we don’t have lives to live and jobs to do. Like we ain’t got merger and acquisitions to merge and acquizish. That’s something you do with job, right?   Still, the players were heated. Tunnelsnake Leslie …

Week 4 Keeps Burning

Comin’ in hot off yesterday’s post up which, like bitcoin, attracted weirdos from all corners of the internet. But that’s alright by me as it also brought a few new players to the Company Brewing show last night. And those scores…oooo those scores. Killer showed up last night, put up a good fight but then …

A Brief and Inaccurate History of Bitcoin

Eight years ago, when Nick and I started this little Trivia endeavor, there was this dude named Joe who would occasionally play. Solid player. One night after the show he strolls up and asks, “What do you two MFers know about b-b-b-b-itcoin?” Originally, I thought Joe spoke like that because he a wild stammer, but …

Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia…The Legend Continues

Stalwarts. That’s how I would classify the Up & Under teams. These MFers are hanging in there through the good and the bad. And frankly, for some of the teams it’s never really good. Take Who Pooped in the Pool, for example. Not only are they not winning, due to archaic laws and something called …

The Return

Look who’s back now, fools and trivia pl-pl-players alike, it is I. And I have returned to drop trivia knowledge and unwanted meanderings upon you. With me is the newest addition to the Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia Family, my daughter Inez Ophira. She’s pretty great for being 12 days old. Sure, she was unable to identify …

Company Brewing Texas Style

Hey-o Milwaukee, tonight it’s your chance to play some Texas Trivia. I’m super excited for you all to get there. It will be 6:55, maybe 6:57, and Nick will be nowhere to be found. Sure the show will be all set up, answer sheets and Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia pens will out for everyone. But where …

This is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things

I’ve never seen Pretty Woman, but I have seen The Girl Next Door, starring Elisha Cuthbert, which I often confuse for She’s All That (another film I’ve never seen) and I know at one point Rachel Leigh Cook’s character in the last film says “I feel just like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman.” Which is …

Opening Night at Company Brewing

I imagine Nick woke up early today, took in a deep breath of that fine Milwaukee air, tossed Damn and the turntable, and said, “I think this is a great day to start Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia at Company Brewing.” Later, when he’s on the bus, he’ll be telling complete strangers, “If you’re really into trivial …
