Madison Shake-ups

In the world of pub trivia, the recent matches at Glass Nickel Pizza have been some of the best the world has ever seen. There have been shake ups, old standards, stalwarts reclaiming the throne, and the rise of new threats. I assume this is just like Games of Thrones, but what do I know, …

WHT vs GBP 2017

Tonight we test the commitment of the Madison teams. Will they be flexing their brains at Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia? Or, will they be ripping through a few twelvers with some friends and watching this Packers battle the Bears, like a bunch of chumps? Well, if these teams care about their standings in the league, they’ll …

The Adamah Option

Alright Madison. Let’s do this. Let’s get our teams together, let’s go over the subjects we discussed earlier in the week and let’s find ourselves in the basement of Glass Nickel by the time 7pm rolls around. In case you missed it, the hot subjects this week are US National Parks, invasive species of Wisconsin …

Suck It, Manchester

“Suck it, Manchester.” That was jibe thrown across the trivia room by T.W.A.T. last night. But this wasn’t about wrestling victory from the clutches of a Mancunian, turning the event into some sort of poor allegory about colonialism, or a commentary about how immigrants are coming for our trivia prizes. No, no, this was T.W.A.T. …

In the Cut, with 3 Guys on A Fact Hunt

Those sandbagging MFers! I guess we should have seen it coming. We should have known this was simply a cat playing with its prey. There was no way 3 Guys on A Fact Hunt were going to give up the league win at the Up & Under. They just let everyone around them cobble to …

(No title)

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 they would probably use a rusty-ass razor blade they found in the gutter, because they live in Riverwest and …

Texas Night in Madison

A million thanks to Anjali who held down the Madison show while I guzzling Lone Stars by the dozen. Everyone said she has a great host, and one person claimed she did a better job than I do. That person won’t be coming back. Anyway the crowd was fresh. All the Texans I expected to …
