Trivia is Back-ack-ack-ack-ack

  Like all of us, this time of quarantine has got me alternating between reflecting and burying my thoughts, feelings and fears by placing side bets while watching MFers play the NES version of Tecmo Bowl on Twitch streams. It turns out the Colts were not a strong team in that era and that Paypal …

More Social Fist-ancing. Because I’m ready to fight.

Milwaukee Players, In case you haven’t heard, there will be no trivia tonight.   Company Brewing is closed for the time being, and it’s probably a pretty good idea for you to spend some time not around other people.   Maybe go that extra mile with social distancing and stop talking to your families and …

Trivia Love in the time of Corona

Madison, you gotta ask yourself, “if I don’t win trivia tonight, who will?” Now let’s be honest. Neal of Fortune is going to win. They always have won. They always will win. But maybe you and your team can take second place. That would be really cool.  Anyway, trivia is a weird as thing to …

Still Leaping!

Leap year day week rolls on! I’m unsure how the rest of the Madison players are spending their holiday week, I assume we’ve all been out in these streets crushing King Cakes and going to that catholic church service where they rub ashes on your head and say “Look what you’ve done now. Are you …

Leap Year Day Week

Check this update. Now check your calendar. Now check this update again. And back to the calendar. And now back to this update.  I suspect most of you are sitting at your computers and thinking, “Damn, doggie. It’s leap year time. You know those ice cold MFers at Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia are going to be …

It’s Go Time in Madison

Time is running out around Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia. The Madison players only have a few short hours to gather a team and get to Glass Nickel Pizza for tonight’s show. And then once they get there, they’ve got maybe 120 minutes before Neal of Fortune crushes their trivia hopes and dreams.  I don’t know how …

Up and Up and Up and Under

Listen up players and potential trivia heads, the Company Brewing crew kicked off what could be a pretty killer week of trivia last night. Armadildos took the top spot which is great news. And the Ol’ Teacher-ound grabbed second place, but I suspect they can do better. Tunnelsnakes grabbed third which is about right for …

The WHT Cash Grab

Brace yourselves, players, because it’s a big day around here at Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia Global Headquarters and Vapable Kale Extractory. Yer boy Greggers is allowed to drive again. That means, any time you cruise by the office today you can catch me slow-rolling up and down the street, steering with my knees and blasting green, …

It’s like Jaws 2 around here

Big things happening here at Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia. But I’m not talking about Trivia Newton John’s win at Up & Under on Tuesday. This isn’t about Scrambled Eggs Benedict Cumberbatch’s top place finish at Company Brewing, nor the appearance of a team named Daffidildo. And I am certainly not talking about the crowd-sourced show in …

Oscars Buzz

Milwaukee, now is the time. It’s time to start brushing off your Company Brewing “Buy 1000 pints and your 1001st is Free” punch cards and get ready for some trivia. This is not some ho-hum, whatever-works round of trivia. No no. Wisconsin’s Hardest Nick stayed up late watching the Oscars to deliver all the important …
