(No title)

[Wisconsin’s Hardest Greg checks his watch. His eyes widen, but barely, he is tired from a combination of anti-seizure meds and sitting up all night watching season three of True Blood, convinced that the complete series is not only better, but truly hits home on the tenth viewing. He grabs his phone]

Siri, call Wisconsin’s Hardest Nick and Anjali of Ever Increasing Wisconsin Hardness. Call them both at the same time, like a three-way call that rich kids could make in the 1990s. But not like the really rich rich kids who just had their own phone lines. Do you remember how Chris and his brothers had the fucking Teen Line? Do you remember that, Siri? Like you could be flipping through the physical phone book and find his parents number and right below it was the Hieke Teen Line? I spent my entire childhood calling his family’s number never knowing who was going to answer. His mom? His dad? An answering machine? Then again, I don’t know if that was a flex by his parents, or them saying ‘Sure, you can have your own phone line, we’ll even cover the additional eight dollars each month, but we’re calling it the Teen Line. You nerd.’ But it was fine. Payback came during winter break our second year of college when EVERYONE went to Chris’s parents house for a NYE party and Nick got all sorts of drunk and peed on pretty much all the plants and half the furniture in the Edwardian Conservatory that Chris’s mother would never even let us enter. Siri, dog, that was a funny night.”

[Both calls are sent to voicemail after two rings. Wisconsin’s Hardest Greg begins typing into the trivia group text]

“We got a MFing crowd-sourced show tonight and so far we only have categories from four teams. So get ready to drop some sort of filler categories if a couple of these teams don’t submit their knowledge tithes.” 

Because tonight’s show is crowd sourced, whatever amount teams pay to play will be donated to Rainforest Flying Squad and Last Stand for Trees, a direct action organization fighting for and protecting the last stands of globally significant ancient temperate rainforest on Vancouver Island.

Registration works like this:

  1. Drop your donation on paypal.me/SlashGreg or just email Greg@wisconsinshardesttrivia.com. 
  2. Once your team has registered, you’ll get the password to the Zoomiary. 
  3. Be sure your teammates know your team name before the game starts, this will allow us to put you on the right team.
  4. If you have any questions, let us know at Nick@wisconsinshardesttrivia.com, Anjali@wisconsinshardesttrivia.com or Greg@wisconsinshardesttrivia.com and we’ll get you in the mix.  

The show starts tonight at 7pm central. See you then.
