Get Your Degree in Trivia, TODAY!

In the future, Philosophy of Trivia classes at I assume someplace like Carlton or Middlebury,  will probably ask, “Did trivia really happen if it wasn’t talked about on social media?” Well, trust me it happened last Thursday at Glass Nickel and it happened last night at Company Brewing. Last night’s 30-minute-later-than-normal start time was no …

In the Belly of the Beast, Wherein the Beast is Trivia Week 20

What up mid-weekers? Y’all looking for an update on some shit? Well, I have some great news. The update is here. Let’s start with Company Brewing. TEEM NABE cobbled together 35 points like Dan D. Lewis making loafers between the takes on the set of some other slog that will put people to sleep. Best …

A Correction

Attention Madison trivia players, I owe you all an apology. Last week, during the Bamboo Harvester of Sorrows of Young Werther category I mentioned the historical inaccuracy of Melton Wool being worn by soldiers in the civil war. I posited Melton Wool wasn’t developed until the late 19th century, and during the Civil War era, …

Crowdsourced to Death

I’m glad last night’s trivia sesh at Glass Nickel Pizza was a solid one. I needed that, and I suspect some of the players did as well, as we rolled into today–one of the most annoying days of the year. The day when aspiring nerds and plush scifis all crawl out from whatever basement they …

Like George Micheal Said, Lets Give it One More Try

There was a time when a crowd-sourced show would have us dealing with five or six team-made Bamboo Harvester categories. And maybe like one category about Chickens of the American South, or whatever. Halcyon days for sure. Kjersti Says Jeremy is the Worst brought us Name That Foreign Body, a category of x-rays featuring things …

Crowd S-S-S-Sourcing Sourcing

Last night, while I was waiting for the last of the crowd-sourced categories to roll in, I opted to watch some broadcast television. Specifically, I watched a sitcom based on a podcast. This wasn’t my first choice of ways to spend a Wednesday night. I was going to waste time reading reviews of the Sleep …

They are all dead

It’s a big Friday around here, as I was fully prepared to tell you about the excitement of the Glass Nickel trivia show, instead I only come with questions. Specifically, what happened? I take the night off to attend a very important Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia meeting and I come home to zeros across the board …

League Enders!

Today is supposed to be the day we are celebrating the League Ender at Glass Nickel Pizza in Madison. We’re supposed to be on the edge of our seats trying to figure out how Team Drink Tickets comes back from last week’s crushing loss which took them out of the top spot. We’re supposed to …

Week 11 Follow Up

After back to back to back to back weeks of standing room only crowds in the Glass Nickel basement, last night reminded us that the universe is chaotic and just when you think you’ve got something great on your hands, half the teams won’t show up. I think Stephen Hawking felt it was okay to …

A Classic Capital City Standoff

Madison, I think we’re really ready for the Trivia show happening tonight. I mean, last week we really went through some mucky-muck together. Nearly 50 people packed in the basement of Glass Nickel Pizza, a new server working the floor, 49 subpar questions, and a tie at 100 points. That’s right Milwaukee, these MFers over …
