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, …

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 …

Let the Fall Leagues Begin

Whew. What a weekend. I’m over here trying to get my questions ready for trivia tonight and I’m still just thinking about what happened at Glass Nickel last Thursday night. I would tell you I’m going to ease into the vulgarities of the night, but there is no way to do so. It was the …

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 …

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 …

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 …
