The Good, The Bad and The Weird

Big Thursday for Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia at Glass Nickel. We’ve got good news, bad news weird news.  Let’s start with the good news. This is a crowd-sourced show. That means we won’t be slogging through the same tired show that seemed so fresh earlier in the week. No no. We’ve got some real top-notch categories …

The End We All Saw Coming

While so many of you were watching the Packers get worked over by the Philadephia Eagles and a costco sized pack of D-batteries, Neal of Fortune was at the Glass Nickel taking home yet another league championship. I should also mention that while NOF was training for trivia, I studied the blade. But that is …

Whooo, there is some weight in the air in Madison today. A lot of people think it’s due to the students moving, but the real players–the Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia Players–they know this is the weight that is now on Neal of Fortune’s shoulders. It actually started last week when founding member SNeal first saw threats …

Madison Summer League is GO!

It’s a big day over here in Madison. Certainly one the city has been waiting for. It’s not “keys to the city” kind of big, but that might all change when people start seeing those summer league points stack up.  Typically, this is where I would make a joke about Spoony Bards’ race to the …

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. …

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 …

BRACKETS BRACKETS BRACKETS COUCHES COUCHES COUCHES

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 …

Rent-a-movie Weather

Madison, this weather is trash. I was trying to use it the pre-cap to tonight’s trivia show at Glass Nickel Pizza, but couldn’t find anything I felt good about. I explored several options: Something about trivia questions being ice bullets and the way all the trivia teams got killed by last week’s show was nearly …

The Mid-way Point in Madison

MMMMMMMMadison, tonight we’ll cross the halfway mark in our Winter League. So, let’s run it down as it is right now. In classic form, Neal of Fortune is light years ahead of everyone with a big timin’ 48 points. I think they could take several weeks off, come back for the final and only have …

Velumtimes!

  Let me tell you a little something about trivia, there are two kinds of trivia players. Those who don’t like Valentine’s Day, and those who weren’t even aware it was Valentine’s Day. Look at any trivia crowd, but the one at Glass Nickel specifically for this example. These are clearly not people who need …
