New Players Welcomed, and Warned

Players, you know the day, the time and what is about to go down. I like the idea that the previous statement prompted JB, or really any player who’s been in the mix for at least three weeks, to suddenly glance at their watch, chuckle to themself and think, “Some poor team is about to …

Them Very Holy Days

Greetings! And welcome to November. We’re talking peak Autumn here. The leaf peepers are gone. And the dried leaves that remain hang from skeletons in the deciduous forests, leaving the cold, unloving touch of conifers as the only beacon of life. Ahh. but it is in this time, that we here at Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia …

The Will Be Metaphorical Blood

Player, I’m talking to you. Look at me. I’m looking directly at you now. I’m talking lazer-like focus and intensity right now. You feel that? Now hear me out. I’m asking you to use two senses now. Or you can read my lips, whatever, I just need to know you’re absorbing and processing the words …

Remote Dispatches

Players, I woke up this morning to startling news. It’s news we knew was coming, as evidence of it has been in every Target and Neiman Marcus you walk through.

The Return is Near

Trivia players, we are back full force this week. Much like the mighty Milwaukee Bucks or the Sir Damien Thorn VII of the Corporate Institutional Bank of Time, we came back. We were always coming back. Typically, there is the tradition that when a trivia host travels somewhere that host is bound to write a …

Brace yourselves, players.    Now, to make it even more amazing, we’ve got Wisconsin’s Hardest Nick back at Company Brewing kicking off a vaxxed-to-the-max season of in-person trivia. …

(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 …

Copper–The Spice of Life

Players, have we got a show for you tonight. Fresh off Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia’s questionable performance on Never Not Funny: Isolation Files and the announcement that June 21 in-person trivia is returning to Company Brewing, we’re bringing a hot one in the form of the Spring League finale.  I would like to say it’s all …
