Up and Under kept riding that wave of summertime trivia success. The were able to pack a couple extra teams into the place for a quick slaughtering. I kind of feel bad for the teams that stumbled into this, I know how hard it can be to suffer a trivia loss. At the same time, …

And Thus Concludes Week One

Madison was looking good last night. Sure, the Glass Nickel scores were kind of horrifying, but the crowd was great. I just looked out from behind my computer and thought, “Trivia, you looking like a bajilli.” Of course, the scores are where the games are won or lost. The scores are where league points are …

June One!

  The first of June is auspicious, not only because it’s older broder’s birthday, but it’s also trivia day right here in the City of Four Lakes. Now, I’m sure all the Milwaukeeites are saying, “We’ve only got one lake, but it’s a pretty great one. Maybe you’ve heard of it. It’s called Michigan.” Yeah, …

CLITERATURE

Writing recaps of trivia shows I don’t attend can be tricky. I know very little the teams at Company Brewing, except that I’m pretty sure Tits & Giggles would cut my throat given the chance.

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 …

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. …
