Trivia as Literature

If American literature in the latter half of the last century has taught us one thing, it’s that we all have a role to fill. Regardless of our actions or our team names, our true selves will be revealed and by the end of the story will be right back to where we began. Sometimes …

The May Ender

I think we can all collectively wipe the sweat from our brows and get hyped because we made it through May. And last night, Madison sent the month packing in style. Travis for Nerl of 4Chan kicked-off the show, because I had to explain to old people that Next Door isn’t a scam but that …

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 …

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 …

Week Eight Recap

It would be nice to be here this morning talking about what a great trivia show we had last night. Sadly, I cannot do that. What happened last night wasn’t trivia, that was a mess. It started out nicely, Pabst Smear a new team showed up, blasted through the first round and looked like they …

Jeopardy Doubles

I was going to start by saying it’s the Madison teams’ time to shine, but we’ve got bigger fish to fry (Lent jokes for all you cafflicks). I mean sure we could talk about how Drink Tickles did break the 100-point mark last week, or how Clementines showed up from out of nowhere and nabbed …

Cuckolded by Christ

We’ve got a straight-up head-to-head showdown this week. Can one of the Madison teams do what Milwaukee could not? Will we see a team go over 100 points tonight, or will the capital city sputter out? The first obstacle will be topping Who Pooped in the Pool with their emotional journey to 20 points and …
