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 …

Week 4 at the GNP

And now it’s Madison’s turn to face the wrath of Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia week four. I can tell you this about tonight’s showdown, Good Enough is on the prowl. Like the recently declared extinct eastern cougar used to be, which some of you might know as a catamount, or the ghost cat (not to be …

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 …
