Returning to the Parks

A note to all trivia players: It’s time to step-up your performance. These games you’ve been playing, it’s like a Backstreet Boys single. Each week I think a different team has the opportunity to take down Alphabet Mafia, but no one ever does it.   You take a team like Milwaukee Tunnel Snakes, a team that …

The League Rolls On

AWWW YISSSS, PLAYERS. Your MFin’ Wednesday has arrived. That means you’re about to virtually get together with a couple friends, maybe a couple people you don’t know that well but who are good at trivia, and then spend the evening watching three hosts who you don’t like much at all ask you a bunch of …

Holy Week Showdown!

Players, Wednesday is upon us. And if you remember your religious education you’ll recall that famous decree “Keep open the day of the hump, for it is the day of the trivia.”  And now I know you can quickly turn to me and say but what of you, Wisconsin’s Hardest Greggers? Where have you been …

Not a Wrestling Fan, But a Huge Fan of Wrestling References

Players, we are now one week into spring league and things are looking good for the Milwaukee teams. That’s Somewhat Raven took a few weeks off, walked back into the tournament hall, crushed all competitors and then walked out with that fat Company Brewing gift card. Sure, Scrambled Eggs Benedict turned on the heat for …

The League is here!

Oh, good morning, players. I wasn’t expecting to see you here. Me? What am I doing? Like any typical St. Patrick’s Day, I’m trying to find someplace that will give me a hot shot of a cold vaccine. It seems the “I’ve been on a ventilator before and I’d rather not do that again” excuse …

The League Lead Up

Players, I hate to be the one to put pressure on you, but someone has to do it. I know we’re all in our own sort of struggle right now and over the past 12 months, so you might not be ready to hear this news. Perhaps you need to steady yourself or kick back …

TONIGHT! We deliver on a promised Gary Oldman category. Be there. But first, get your team registered:  The Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia entrance fee is $10/player, or $50/team of six players. Teams can still play with more than six players, but will be docked 10 points for each additional player. Drop your payments on Once …

New Trivia Day

It’s a good day here at Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia Global Headquarters and Big Cat Health and Wellness Complex (not BIG like jaguars and lions, but for just like a real chonk tabby). A few hours ago Nick, Anjali and I stood on our viewing platform of the loading dock and waved as this weeks’ questions …

Spring is Coming

Players, I hope you’ve all put on your best Cathy comics face and you’ve been practicing your “Ack!” voice, because I’ve looked at the questions this week and the only thing I can say is “League training starts next week. Groan.” This is not trivia for the simps. To keep in the style of Cathy …

The Thaw

Stretch it out players, word on the street is the thaw is upon us. I have mixed feelings on this. I mean, good god it feels nice to comfortably walk out of my house for the first time in 10 days (one metric week). On the flip side, we don’t need trivia players walking away …
