Century Eggs

It’s good to know the Madison crowd is catching on the open bribery that keeps Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia moving. Last night Tickles for Nickels, a team that in the past has brought me Chilean candy, a Lake Tahoe bottle opener and countless other gifts, brought me a century egg. I should note, in the past …

Setting it off

Alright Madison, in the words of the Queen Latifah, “Let’s set it off.” That’s from the classic, 1996 film Set It Off. At one point Latifah, as the character Stoney, demands a bigger gun and says, “I ain’t trying to rob stagecoaches, I need something with which I can set it off. Like those trivia …

(No title)

And here we are, barely knuckle deep in 2018 and MFers are already complaining about trivia being too hard. And that’s from someone who helped write the questions. So Tunnel Snakes lost the classics round last night by one point because they had too many people on their team. It seems Nick may have doubly …

Interyuletidian

Ahhh It’s the interyuletidian time of year. The week between Chrimbo and you finding yourself stumbling in your front door at 3am. The grease from your impulse purchase–a late night 2-for-1 gyros and bonus fries–leaching through the brown paper bag. You’re still deciding between washing it down with a warm can of Coke or that …

Friday Flashback (To one week ago)

Oh man, we had some shit go down at trivia last night. There was a mercenary trivia player, who played under the name Trivia Mercenary.  There was also a new team who had no love for the Bamboo Harvester of Sorrow category, and there was the struggle-fest that was Good Enough’s game play.   But …

Glass Nickel Early Winter League Ender

The time has come for a showdown in Madison. For the true trivia players, it’s going to look like this: The Spoony Bards have 56 points and Neal of Fortune is parked at 54. That’s close. But what we also know is NOF is sitting on like 5000 drink tickets. That makes it real tight …

Double Jeopardy!

First things first, right? There is no Company Brewing show tonight on account of the Packers-Lions game. Normally, I would say this is where we cover scores, like the 29 points Bitch Planet put up. Or the 39 scored by TWAT. Or even the 41 Good Enough cobbled together. But we’re not talking about them. …

Drink Tickets Make All The Difference

Closing out a week of end to end bangers, it’s your final Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia recap for October 2017. We started with the promise of Big Iron and the return of trivia legend Lars Sevvy. Then we rolled into the Up & Under show where The Whispering Goat Whores struggled but still put up 46 …

Night of the Living Drink Tickets

As we embark on another week of Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia, I think it’s important we first reflect on the last Glass Nickel show. We’re hyped to have a few new teams in the fold to shake up the scene, and in time I expect to see nothing but killer scores from them. That said, last …

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, …
