Inauguration Day

A little over 4 years ago, I was at a friend’s place in Eau Claire, Wisconsin. It was the day after the 2016 election, and the entire world seemed numb. I think it was how we all felt at the time. And I wrote this trivia post, which never went up, about how the presidency …

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 …

Crowd-Sourced II:

Here we are again, players, on the verge of another crowd-sourced show. Each team’s opportunity to show the world what they are made of. Or, in the case of some teams, their opportunity to not deliver anything and simply let their scores wallow in the mid-to-lower 20s.  This week we’ve got room for two more …

Crowd-Sourced!

Brace yourselves players because this week is coming through WITH WEIGHT. Anjali of Ever Increasing Wisconsin Hardness will be out again for story writing class, so all the pressure is on Wisconsin’s Hardest Nick and Wisconsin’s Hardest Me.  Listen players, between you and Wisconsin’s Hardest me, I’m a bit concerned about Anjali’s class. She told …

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 …

Deep in the League Mucky Muck

We are entering the closing weeks of the Late 2020 league here at Wisconsin’s Hardest Trivia. And things are not quite shaking out as I expected. We all knew where teams like Milwaukee Tunnel Snakes and Graj Darts were going to end up. I believe the legend of their trivia play is whispered in hush …

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. A stoner joke made on blip, upon another blip on Earth’s timeline.  …

The Give and The Take

Take a moment, players. Catch your breath. It’s been a hell of a weekend.  Consider how the history books will talk about this time. How voters in the US were able to shake off a would-be despot. How a beast, born of the effluvia of discarded Ron Hextall trading cards and once-airborne Duracells, then mixed …

The Fog of Life’s War

  Way back when, like 12 years ago, Wisconsin’s Hardest Nick and I started playing trivia at a Monday night show, which led to a tradition we called Mild Hangover Tuesdays. But you have to understand time. We were younger. Lars and Keith were in the house. Bottles of Schlitz were two dollars.  We would …
