April’s Fool Day

Ahhh April’s Fool Day. A day that used to be for children tucking firecrackers in grampa’s cigars and causing him to lose his sight and job. Then it became bigger because of Google being all like, “we can intercept all those emails from your parents, filter the information, relay the pertinent facts–your cousin’s getting married …

Canadian Invasion

Gather ‘round, trivia players. Let me tell you a story. This story takes place last Thursday night when Neil got all spicy and told me the Dead, Canadian, Both or Neither was not a good category. Now, we should address the fact it is NOT a good category. Nor was the Wild Hearts Can’t Be …

BRACKETS BRACKETS BRACKETS COUCHES COUCHES COUCHES

The bad news about Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia at Glass Nickel Pizza tonight is that by the time we fill that basement and kick off the show, 85% of the crowd is going to be talking about busted brackets, unforeseen upsets and melted minds. That’s a lot of pressure to out on college hoopermans. That’s also …

(No title)

I’ve consulted with the sentient being that is this week’s questions, and I return to you with good news. Even after a drawn-out slug-fest that saw Das Tunnelsnakes take first place from Shart of Glass and 3 Guys on a Fact Hunt last night, The Questions are ready to kick down the door at Up …

Hello trivia players, I hope you’re all doing well and have had a chance to shower to today. It’s important to wash off the St. Patrick’s Day almost immediately.

I explored several options: Something about trivia questions being ice bullets and the way all the trivia teams got killed by last week’s show was nearly …

CoBrew Winter League Commence!

Company Brewing players, I hope you have your trivia shoes dusted off because there is trivia stomping to do tonight. Trivia stomping is a lot like line dancing, but instead of music the stompers movements are set to murmur of other teams. Trivia shoe are the other major differentiator between line dancing and trivia stomping. …

Consider Your Motivation For Getting Out Tonight

Before you start complaining about the cold, or how you’re wearing 12 layers and you’re considering skipping trivia tonight, I want you to think about the earliest settlers of Wisconsin, and specifically Madison. Think about how they didn’t have their Nest thermostats turned up to 76. Or a neighbor kid who shoveled their sidewalks. They …

Let The Winter League Begin

Madison, I hope all you players are relaxing today. These last few hours before the Winter League begins are not about learning more, it’s about getting your mind right. This is the classic dichotomy of the trivia mind, you want to be sharp, but not too sharp. That’s why some players are here, at Wisconsin’s …

Indigenous Peoples’ Day

It seems we have just enough time to slide in a few trivia shows before the NLCS starts. That means, Company Brewing players, I’m going to need you to halt your planning of a trivia-themed tailgate and focus on this week’s show. I am honored and thrilled you’re planning really fantastic treats like a sampling …
