Summer Heaters

I haven’t checked the weather for Milwaukee today, and y’all know I haven’t stepped outside since Thanksgiving, but I do hope Up & Under has the AC on full blast. And players, you’re going to need it.  First off, let’s assume an ambient air temperature of 82 degrees tonight at 7pm. You’re also going to …

Such Bravery!

  I think we trivia players, maybe even all Americans, need to mark June 17th on our  calendars. The world needs to remember the day Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia players at Company Brewing started their summer league with not one Facebook clue to help them. America has a national doughnut day, so certainly we can honor …

The Rise of Messopotamia and Fall of All Others

“SIRI! Update my LinkedIn profile. Have it read Wisconsin’s Hardest Greg: Questioneer, Championship Napper, Podcast Aficionado, Soothsayer” It’s been less than one week since I predicted the rise of What A Hot Messopotamia and at last night’s Company Brewing show they began their ascension. Call in a team of forensic scientists to examine the remains. …

We Can’t Crowd-Source All The Time

It bums me out that I can’t be at the Company Brewing shows. Not because I think they’re better. Trust me, Madison is still the number one trivia show in the Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia empire, based on a survey of Madison trivia hosts. But it would be cool to see the people who come up …

Get Your Degree in Trivia, TODAY!

In the future, Philosophy of Trivia classes at I assume someplace like Carlton or Middlebury,  will probably ask, “Did trivia really happen if it wasn’t talked about on social media?” Well, trust me it happened last Thursday at Glass Nickel and it happened last night at Company Brewing. Last night’s 30-minute-later-than-normal start time was no …

May Day

Welcome to May Day, players. I hope you’re all walking in a little late. Perhaps you’re going to cut out early, or maybe that lunch hour is going to run into the multiples. Whatever you’re doing today I hope you’re sticking it to the fat cats. Here at Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia, we are the fat …

Clinging to the Nearest Passerby

It’s pretty clear I lost control of Trivia long ago. I used to think it was our sponsors who took over. Then, I believed it was the weakest of the teams that did, which was no better. And recently I’ve been sailing through thinking, “Nick’s got this under control. The Company Brewing show will keep …

It’s Up & Under Time

Rough morning in the Trivia world. I woke up to learn that the winning team at Company Brewing last night was named Unsolicited Nick Pixxx. And frankly I am disgusted. I prefer all of my Nick pics to be solicited. Why just the other day I dropped a pair of pants off for him. He …

Six Days Deep into February

Oh these February Doldrums. How many days has it been now since you were last outside for more than a minute? Four or five days? Maybe six? Does it even matter when the outside world is dead and frozen and the calendar lies to you because certainly February is the longest month? Your best hope …

Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia…The Legend Continues

Stalwarts. That’s how I would classify the Up & Under teams. These MFers are hanging in there through the good and the bad. And frankly, for some of the teams it’s never really good. Take Who Pooped in the Pool, for example. Not only are they not winning, due to archaic laws and something called …
