Return to Normal-ish

Listen, players, I don’t want to say that this week is some sort of return to normal. But let’s just bask in this winter light for a moment. Gone are the crowd-sourced shows and entire teams getting very angry about arm wrestlers. Gone, for now, are the Wednesday nights when Wisconsin’s Hardest Nick and Wisconsin’s Hardest I simply click through a slide show pretending these categories we didn’t write make for the easiest shows, while we secretly feel the weight of seeing first-hand the kind of trivia monsters we’ve created.  

On top of that, the doubles are back. Take a moment. Let that soak in. Imagine whatever .gif you think best represents your level of approval or utter delight. And then think, will you be out there, doubling on a category about random awards? Or are you going to hold out, thinking, “Certainly the last category will be the best one for doubling”.

Is that really how you’re going to play it? Is it, Drink Tickets? Chodes? Is it?

On top of that, we’re also back to our normal prize structure. We’re talking about $100 gift cards to Company Brewing or Glass Nickel Pizza for first place and $50 for second. Third place players…you know you’re playing for free next week. And if you’re part of the Scrambled Eggs Benedict Cumberbatches and Cookies squad, you’ve got a free entry hanging out from a few weeks ago. 

Newcomers and all other teams need to register for this week’s show, like this: 

  1. 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 paypal.me/SlashGreg.
  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. Finally, if you have any questions, drop an email on Nick@wisconsinshardesttrivia.com, Anjali@wisconsinshardesttrivia.com or Greg@wisconsinshardesttrivia.com and we’ll get you in the mix.   

The show starts Wednesday night at 7pm central. See you there.
