You’d think they dominated from start to finish winning every round and every prize, but actually, they did it the hard way.  Mugabe Flower Power started off very well winning the TNON and enjoying free beer from the get-go, but they had competition from Your Mama, Crippled Ugly and Stupid, and the Butterheads before they were able to win the overall prize by just one point!

(Quick reminder for any newbies: TNON = Team Name of the Night & the easiest way to get some free beer.)

Your Mama, not to be confused with Your Mom, took charge in the first round and won it easily.  The Your Mom team started a bit late in the first round but it was never really clear what was up with the Mom copycat theme thing.  Anyway, after the domination in the first round, Mugabe Flower Power came back and took round two easily setting up a showdown in the third round like always!

At the end of it all, Mugabe Flower Power pulled out the win by one point with the surprise team, the Butterheads tied with Your Mama for second.  After the tiebreaker, no Mom or Mama won a top prize.  Maybe next week!

With all that going on, I didn’t forget that the Cripped, Ugly and Stupid team actually won the third round and enjoyed some beer and a slightly longer stay than they expected.  Good reason to stay, IMHO.  Crippled, Ugly and Stupid

Hey everyone thanks for making this week so great we ended up having 10 teams play and some new ones coming out to put pressure on the staple NE2! The Iowa Boys took the first round and ended up winning the game in a tiebreaker!  The Lusk Tribe returned with heat coming in third place and getting a gift certificate.  The Watermelon Kings were back as well as the Dinos, Us Two and Mike and Lorrie!

This was our most competitive game ever although we did have some complaints of the questions being a little hard so we’ll try and fix that!  They also gave away 1st, 2nd and 3rd place prizes this week so keep coming and keep bringing friends!!

Tuesday’s Showdown at Old C’s Melee Extravaganza June 26, 2008

Tonight an anonymous team pointed out the fact that the bumble bee mascot’s nose is easily rendered phallic. The Monkee’s cast looks at the Little Lebowski Urban Achievers’ seven competitor showing, though one of the Little Lebowski Urban Achievers arrived late and the one who left early is slightly retarded. Some new teams showed us that the only way to serve “Deep Dish Crotch” is to wash it down with a “Cold Dr. Pepper.”  Because of The Monkee’s dynasty, a new team is on the scene called “The Monkee Punishers” and we also had new teams DLK and Uni to round out the teams that made it through to the end!

 

Round 1: That’s Tight and The Little Lebowski Urban Achievers both had a perfect score by the end and That’s Tight took the round in a tiebreaker!

 

Round 2: Three way tie breaker (15 points) between The Monkees, The Monkee Punishers, and Cold Dr. Pepper concluded with Cold Dr. Pepper coming out on top

 

Round 3: Two way tie breaker between That’s Tight and the Monkees decided the winner for the game with That’s Tight taking the gold this week!

 

Thanks to everyone for coming out to play we are getting a good response from Old C’s so please bring your friends, I’ll see you all next week!

A Quiet Night on Ogden Street (or was it just quiet in the bar?) June 26, 2008

I might have to take back what I said about you guys last week.  Last week, I had gushed about how much more energy there was in the room compared to the week before, but man, the energy was gone.  We had a pretty low turnout, which I know, it increases your odds of winning.  But geez, we started with five teams, and ended the game with four teams.  I guess I should call up some friends and tell them to meet me at Ogden Street Southevery Wednesday evening!  Ok I know, it’s not your job to recruit rivals.  This game was pretty weird in that it was all or nothing.  For pretty much every question, every team got it wrong, or every team got it right.  I’m not really sure if the questions were just too easy or ya’ll were just cheating.  Either way, it was a tight game with 22 points for first, 21 points for second, 20 points for third, and 14 points for fourth. 

The winners from last week took their giftcard and ran, to never be seen again.  Maybe they were at the spa, but that just gave way for another team to win.  Our winner from this week was Trannies, a team that hasn’t won before, and hasn’t played very many games.  The team consisted of a woman and her husband that threw in answers once in a while, he was a little distracted by playing poker.  Also from the poker table, I had a guy who kept yelling out answers this week.  However, this guy always yelled the same answer, “Denver!”  He added a little life to the party, but really, that’s not the answer to every question.  I probably could find a bunch of questions that all had the answer “Denver” though.  What is the capital of Colorado?  Which city is coined “the mile high city”?  Of the following cities, which has the most population.. Aurora, Fort Collins, Colorado Springs, Denver or Lakewood?  John _____ sang the song, “Leaving, on a Jet Plane.”  Ok, you get the point.

Just one point behind the winner was The Short Bus.  They are a strong force, but maybe the number of them puts them at a disadvantage.  It’s easier to argue with one person than it is five others.  Still, they come back every week and have their eye on the prize.  Only a couple more weeks guys!  This competetive team is hoping that they win by default next week, because the nearing holiday weekend.  So if you want to piss of the bus riders, you know how to do it….

Boogie or he BitchThe third place team was just two points away from the winning team.  Boogie or the Bitch, came in third place this week, after a hiatus last week.  I think they will blame it on the pop culture questions  that were focused on a younger crowd.  After a while of trying to figure out who the bitch was, they explained to me that it’s a political name.  In that respect, I played a political song by the Flobots for the crowd.

 

 

 

Our fourth place team tonight, Dawisha’s Darlings came in with 14 points.  I’m not sure who Dawisha is, maybe it was the person you were on the phone asking answers to.  Ok ladies, I told ya the rules, no phones, that’s cheating.  You should bring whoever it was to the game next week, and maybe even buy them a drink or two, for their telephone work this week.  Next time ladies, no phones if you’re gonna play the game.  (You might be wondering why I let it happen- I didn’t find out about their phone calls until they were gone). 

Blonde Ambition, you really didn’t have a lot of ambition to play tonight.  You came for 11 questions and left.  You didn’t even play the whole round.  They at least graced us with their presence for a little bit, but really should stay longer next time!  You didn’t even make it for photo opps 😦

I will have the scores posted on myspace at www.myspace.com/MarciBuzzwordz  then you can get the weekly results.

Alright guys, I’m signing off.

Tuesday at the Glenn with Preacher June 25, 2008

Tuesday Night at the Glenn was…well, ok I’ll say it, I was late, OK?!? I’m sorry, I’m sorry I’m sorry. But good things come to those who wait because as always it was food, fun, and a bunch of merrily drunk triviateers hounding me about how wrong I am. Round 1 started as normal with teams Mad Dog and God’s of Wrong Answers dominating the field. However with their hilarious answer team Rendezvous kept at their heels the entire way. By question #10, it was a close game, but the starting favorites won out, making it a tie breaker for the miles of I-90, and winning by only 23 miles, team Mad Dog are your victors.

In round 2, team Fruitcake Interpretation got a laugh with their misinterpretation of the terms “withdrawal” and “pull out” leading them to answer completely inappropriately for the first question. How ever the rest of the round proceeded (almost) without incident. (Though Team Mad Dog thinks they’re clever by handing me random trivia that they’ve come up with…like anyone cares about prosciutto ham). The winners of the round, the ever present Gods of Wrong Answer cinching it with their knowledge, of well, knowledge.

Round 3 started with a tribute to the late great George Carlin, then proceeded with me butchering a host of Nordic names. I was wholly disappointed with everyone in the bar for not knowing their Heroes trivia, since it is (remember this it may someday be a question for a bazillion points) the most awesome show almost ever. Team Shell Bell made an unprecedented run for first time contestants, but, alas, the winner of the round, once again, is team God’s of Wrong Answers.

Star Wars Fact of the Day: Mark Hamill’s middle name is Meriweather.

Signing off, this is Preacher.

What a Night For New Friends!! June 25, 2008

Wow!  What a weird night that it was!  Let me give you a preface to the night, I went to a dinner for work, which was sponsored by a pharmaceutical company.  I went with a couple of coworkers and I snuck out early to make it to Charlie’s  on time.  One of the coworkers from dinner followed suit and came to join trivia night for her first time.  Funny thing though,  a couple of the guys that I didn’t even know from the dinner, they ended up at Charlie’s  too!  So here we are, a couple of gluttons, full from dinner, ready to do some trivia.  Then of course, we have the regular die-hards, that will be there no matter what.  Then there was a local dj that I think I was the only one that recognized.  And an up-and-coming artist who wasn’t sure about the place, cause he kept telling me how he was straight.  Really though, we were all one big happy family. 

We had a few teams tonight that were new to trivia night.  They weren’t new to the bar per say, but just new to playing live trivia at this particular location.  But being new didn’t really put them at a disadvantage.  A couple of the teams did cut out early though, it must have been past their bed-times.

Let’s talk about the winners again, then we’ll move on down the line.  JETS won yet again this week.  They had two members tonight, but fended off six members from the next team.  One of the members of JETS admitted to me that he’s a member of a prestigious academic community (maybe that’s why they kick ass so much, or he was just trying to convince me that he’s smart but really he’s just cheating).  Ok, I’m kidding.  I know that you know your shit.  Their team might be a bit shorter from now on, if one of them decides to move back to California.  But really, I don’t think he’ll find much more fun than Charlie’s, so I’m betting that he’ll stay!

In second place, and ten points behind first place was Alleycat.  They clarified their name and informed me that it’s singular, not plural, as I had previously reported.  They “are one” that prowl the alley’s together.  Hmm, I’m really not going to ask, I just won’t!  So they’ll be back next week, to spend their giftcards that they won tonight.  In the meantime though, I can bet a couple of them will be at home watching reruns of Heros, as they are avid fans of the show.

Our third place winner was a brand new team.  They were new to trivia night, but really kicked ass.  This group was a bunch of girls called Lez Go.  They really didn’t like the idea of having to walk their answers up, but did a great job when they did.  Two of my co-workers from my other job joined this team (they better have been the ones that answered the psychological questions). 

There were a couple other teams that played a few rounds and left.  Had you stayed, you may have taken one of the prizes.  Damn it, stay next time!!  Fabulous did fabulous!  Actually, they were tied for 4th place, but then had to run.  Those were the guys that I had dinner with that randomly ended up at the same destination.  Barbie Bears, oh how I loved your name!  (it was inspired by my Barbie shirt that I was wearing).  You guys did great, even though you were mad that my “cousin” isn’t doing trivia anymore.  So the name, Beavers, was random in that the members were men. Hmm, yeah.  So you should have stayed and finished out the game, but I know how to find you both!  Beer ‘n’ Buzzin, what the heck?!  You come and rip off your shirt for cheaper drinks, but then you bail after just a few questions.  Maybe you got accosted by an interested man, if that was the case, I’m sorry for dissin’.  Becki (with an I), you won my free shot contest and then only answered a few questions, that must have been ADD, cause it wasn’t boring tonight!

We started with a few teams, had others join, had others leave, but of course, it was still a showdown of JETS and Alleycat.  The tournament will continue next week!

JETS (still yet to get a hair cut)

Alleycat  Justin, why are your eyes always closed in every picture??

 

 

Lez Go I just couldn’t get them closer to get another picture, so we took three

Beavers (I still don’t get the name, guys)

See you next week, Charlies Tuesday at 8:30pm (maybe a lil earlier if I’m ready to go- or later if I arrive late from a fancy dinner again).

In the meantime, we have a couple websites  www.myspace.com/MarciBuzzwordz   and www.myspace.com/Buzzwordz

Lone Stranger who tied for 1st in round # 1 but lost out to shinglers and movers in the tie breaker round. Bummmmmmmer dude.

 On to round # 2 where we had all 7 teams neck and neck for the entire round but in the end it came down to a three way tie between teams Z team Screw this guyand of-course team Old G and the blaster. All tied with 12 Pt’s a pop team Screw this guywalks with the big win coming the closest to the final tie breaking question. What a good time. Remember if you didn’t win tonight keep coming back where every Wednesday night from 9-11 you to can ruin some braincells.

 

Sweatin’ out the answers in Wheat Ridge June 21, 2008

Apparently some of the regulars knew the air conditioning wasn’t working but for those of us who didn’t, it was one hot evening!  I was actually glad the room wasn’t packed like it has been lately.  Still, with ten teams and eight finishers, it was another good night of competition and just plain weirdness.  I am definitely blaming the full moon.

So, here’s how it went down.  Tea Bagging in Iowa and the Bombay Manhole Killers went head to head each round all night.  Fortunately, the TNON champions came through again with a great name and won their beer that way or it would have been entirely hogged by the two routinely unstoppable teams!

After all was said and sweated, the Bombay Manhole Killers eeked out a one-point victory for the overall prize.  For those of you wondering what Bombay Manhole Killers is all about, google ‘India manhole deaths’, it’s a messed up story really. 

Bombay Manhole Killers

Something crazy was in the water or was it the beer?  Whatever it was, the Tea Bagging in Iowa team was en fuego on Wednesday night.  Beyond R-rated so I won’t detail it here.  Maybe they were a bit distracted by their insanity, as they missed the top score by one point.  Still, a strong showing, as always!

Tea Bagging in Iowa

Back with a vengeance the TNON champions came through after a week or so off.  At this point, I just expect them to be the most creative.  No one else seems to be able to channel their brilliance so congrats on another win!  This week they were This Just In: Kobe tries to take championship against its will!

This Just In: Kobe tries to take championship against its will!

There were strong showings by several other teams but no one could quite match the two champions.  Still, a big thank you to the rest of you guys for hanging in through the hot evening and bringing your A games!

The Rookies (thanks for playing – come back again soon!)

The 11th doctor (maybe no longer flying solo after his teammate bailed to a distant Colorado town as the champs might have recruited him!)

Where is Lance? (formerly known as Team C – Lance needs to come more often!)

Frodo Baggins and the 3 Fingered Clan (better late than never!)

fupa

Woodchuck and the Clean Up Hitters deftly avoided my photography.  Fine, be that way.

Let’s hope there is A/C next week and I am certain there won’t be another full moon.  Enthusiasm is still welcome and wanted so bring it again next week, Wednesday at 8pm at Old Chicago Wheat Ridge!  See you all then!

Best game so far at Old C’s downtown!!! June 19, 2008

Wow guys nice work showing up in force this week!!!  We had a wonderful game with ten teams battling for the new higher stakes and better prizes! If we keep having these types of showings Old C’s will of course give away better prizes so keep it up!

For the first time since I’ve been hosting I had a team win the game but not win any of the rounds, The Monkees found themselves in heated competition with of course The Little Lebowski Urban Achievers and T.E.A.M. both of which won tiebreakers but floundered later in the game.  Coming in a close second just 1 point back at the end was Capri 4 Me who tore up the last round good job!

All in all a great game, certainly more entertaining than the shalacking that the Celtics gave the Lakers! Thanks again everyone for coming out, keep it up.  I’ll see you all next week!!!
