D-Day Baby!

Madison. What up? What up? It’s Thursday night and that means it’s time to get ready for another serious bout of Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia. Now, if you were paying attention earlier this week, you would know that European Geography, Lana Del Rey and Harry Houdini all in play tonight. But we’ve got another late-breaking category. …

The Right Call

In the leadoff spot this week we have the crew from Up & Under, and we’re going to toss it directly to the Brewers announcers for the call. Lane Grindle: Walking up to the plate right now we’ve got Celebrity Guest Host Andy Berg. You know, Bob, Celebrity Guest Host Andy Berg, when he’s not …

Introducing, The Judith Tee

YO! We got brand new tees. After several rounds of revisions, trying to find the sweet spot between chunky letters and screen widths for small tees, we’ve got the latest Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia shirts. Anyone who’s played enough, or just once, has probably run into one of our references to Judith, with the help of …

On Tuesdays We Wear Silks

Let’s start with a shout out to a couple of teams playing at Company Brewing last night. And I’m not talking about Scrambled Eggs who took first place with 93 points. Nor am I going on about Spumoni Bologna for their great name. I’m talking about Das Tunnelsnakes and Triple Unicycle who both scored 69 …

  The internet is ALIVE today, and people of the virtual world are pissed. There are no lines. No order. Just an angry mob of voice after voice snapping off hot takes and jokes, or jokes of hot takes, about the ending of Game of Thrones. Now, consider the voices you haven’t heard. The voices …

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 …

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 …

Post St. Patrick’s Day Massacre

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’ve heard that residual Irishness, if it remains in contact with your skin, it soaks in and just makes you insufferable. You end up with a …

IT’s Called Time Theft, and it’s a Corporate Crime

Typically, on a Monday like this I would cruise in here and say “I don’t want to waste any of your time…” But let’s be honest, all I do is flush minutes and hours away from your assumed employers. I’m like some sort of remote, smoldering revolutionary. Every so often I just steal a few …
