All Aboard the Virtual Trivia Train!

Whew, back in action here at the trivia yard. And there is so much to do. But before we get into that I’m just going to wonder out loud how it is that I am the busiest I’ve been in, like 20 years, around Labor Day. We all are, right? That’s how society works.  Anyway, …

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 …

(No title)

Let me tell it to you straight, players. If there were to be an in-person show tonight. If we all crammed in the basement of the Glass Nickel or in the impressive expanse of Company Brewing, there would be so many unhappy players. Even Gentrifiers of Kazan, who finally got in touch with me and …

Awwww, Canada Day

I imagine Mel, on the Diarrhea/Dildos team, had trouble sleeping last night. Unable to contain herself, by 8am the Zoom Room was fired up and it was her, the Dreadlocks and No Socks: Tales From La Playa team and an unaccepted invite to Justin Trudeau.  I would have loved to be on that call. Mel, …

Middle Summer

Players, we all know this is a holiday week, right? We all know by the time weekend rolls around everyone will be waist deep in burgers and grilled sausage. But if you really dig into the metrics of what this week is, look into the stats on the number of 16oz jars of sauerkraut consumed …

You Can’t Stop Such Momentum

Well, here we go again. Another week of Wisconsin’s Hardest Nick, Anjali, who is ever increasing in Wisconsin Hardness, and me preparing the greatest trivia show to which the internet has ever borne witness, only to be thwarted by the social media overlords.  I understand some of you want to honor us by producing “They …

Supporting the Parks, but not emotionally

Just because I took a Monday off doesn’t mean all of you get to do the same. There is so much work to do. We have to finish writing questions. Milwaukee Tunnel Snakes needs to fill their 10-player roster. And someone from Scrambled Eggs Benedict Cumberbatch needs to get in touch with me to let …

Summer League Shall Commence

Today’s a weird day to be talking about trivia. I hope the three minutes you take to read this feels as weird for you as writing it does for me. After spending a weekend ripping through social media, asking “what do I need to do?” and “where do I help the most?” and “are my …

It Was Caffeine Pills

Dry your eyes, Madison. I know the first of November can be rough. You’re packing away your Novak Djokovic or Brit Marling in the film Sound of my Voice costume. You’re squeezing a couple of the remaining mini-packs of Swedish Fish you were handing out to trickertreaters, wondering if they can last one more year. …

The Longest Confidence

As Spoony Bardy David put it after last weekend, the long con has come up. For over a year, Team Drink Tickets (or whatever their serial killer flavor of the week is) has been tanking scores. Sure, every so often they would get third or second, sometimes even a first place finish, but they’re much …
