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 …

C’mon Ride That Crowd-Sourced Train

Players, somebody take my arm. My knees are weak. I might be going down. You see, I’ve seen what you have yet to see. I have lain mine eyes upon this week’s Wisconsin Hardest Trivia show, and I don’t know if I will ever recover.  Five of the six categories tonight are coming from the …

Finals Week!

Welcome to the interyulian days. These days that see us lumber from the Solstice to New Year’s Day. Heavy in the belly with feast after feast, and in the heart with the weight of long nights and another year passing during which the words to Auld Lang Syne have not been learned nor considered.  Each …

The Macy’s Day Before Thanksgiving Day Trivia Show

Time is running out, players. I mean, you still have like 7+ hours, but consider the age of the earth, we’re talking a few billions years and y’all are going to let your team registration slide until the last seven hours. 420 minutes.

OOOOOOOOO doggy! It’s league time.  Can you imagine the players of Welcome to Blockbuster boarding up their hearts, checking to be sure their brain cannons are loaded, taking inventory of their Space Whistle crowlers.

I noticed the days now had more darkness. I could see the …

Borderland Dispatch

Here’s a fun fact about the team Dreadlocks and No Socks: Tales From La Playa: they’re Torontorians so they don’t own a car. But when they use ZipCar, or whatever the luxury version of Zipcar is, you know the one that only offers Range Rovers, Dreadlock Dave brings his own bumper sticker. It’s not really …

Jours des Chien

This is it players. There is no turning back. This is the final round.  I’m not going to lie to you and say this is anyone’s game. I think we all know Milwaukee Tunnel Snakes are not going to walk away from this show victorious. There is, however, the very real chance that if things …

The Case of the Missing Kaplan West Prep Players

What a Wednesday! Am I right? I could barely sleep. There is so much excitement over this last three week push to crown the Stay At Home Summer 2020 league champions. Who will it be? Both Scrambled Eggs and Welcome to Blockbuster are sitting on 85 league points. Then OG Neal of Fortune is currently …

Leak Week

Players, we gotta keep this brief today. But don’t worry, if there is anything Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia excels at, it’s brevity. So let’s nail these points. Kaplan West Prep! Where you at? I need to know where I’m making your donation for the win last week.      B. Did I chastise Wisconsin’s Hardest Nick …
