Hello friends thank you to everyone who showed up on Friday, we ended up having 6 teams join us which I was great because CU was out of session and it was the night after Christmas!  I was subbing for Tracey and found a really fun place to do some trivia!  LLUA followed me up there and turned out winning the game by only one point.  Right behind them was Huts and Dazed, who went into a tiebreak for second place.  Huts came out on top of that one and took home the prize!  Cougars was right in there as well falling back by only 2 points at the end, great job guys, and to the CSU fan, no hard feelings:)  Ace and Kimosabe rounded out the game with some good play.  Thanks to everyone who showed up on a not so popular night, I had a great time subbing in!  Keep on showing up,

Brody

We had a great turnout considering the result of the Broncos-Chargers game.  I was glad to see that we had some new teams as well as some old teams.  The DS, you guys skipped out before I could get a picture, but great job through the first two rounds!

We had a few teams show up late, like Mike’s #1 Fan and Man Bear Pig Awareness who both held their own considering they didn’t have any of the first round and a few questions in the second.

Well, so much for thinking the turnout between Christmas and New Years would be minimal.  We had plenty of teams and all were prepared to duke it out over a batch of trivia.

We had two tie-breaks and very little point difference between all the teams the entire evening.

First round with 9 teams and only a 2.5 point difference between first and last.  First round provided our first tie-break – this one between Team Catz and Meet the Fockers.  Catz won that one.

For round 2, we lost Wisconsin Nymphomaniacs but picked up Sweet N Sour and Bailey Woozles.  Again a clump of teams, eight this time all within 2.5 points of each other.  The Goats won this round cleanly though.  Shout out to Popes of Chili Town who came in second, and had made it out from the OC in Thornton.

Two rounds were enough for Murdoch’s Fan Club, but that still left us with nine teams to finish the evening.

Round 3 ended with another tie-break. This one between The Goats and Sibling Rivalry. Not exactly sure why, but SR abdicated the tie-break to the Goats giving them their 2nd – and 3rd win for most points overall.  They took home all the big prizes.

For most everyone else it was a night of struggles. Meet the Fockers had a tough night losing the first tie break and ending 2nd in round 3 and with secondmost  points overall.  Bailey Woozles were playing strong but by showing up partway through round 2, basically eliminated themselves from the competition.  Keepers of the Flame had the same problem – the majority of their team did not make it until the 3rd round. By then it was too late.  Sweet N Sour could have been in the hunt if only they had gotten their earlier.  And Iron Maiden Rules had another off-night.  As the evening wore on, their performance dropped. And we usually expect them to be the team to beat.

Still the competition was fun. It was a more serious night of game players with relatively few style points awarded.  I love seeing everyone ‘in it to win it’.   And hope to see many of you in the New Year!

Ciao for now,

Christmas Charlie’s Style December 25, 2008

Posted by buzzwordz in Buzzwordz Trivia.

Well I must begin by announcing that we found the cure for PMS.  Alcohol, especially “candy cane shots.”  I don’t know how they made it, but it sure did help.  Thanks guys 🙂  P.S. Charlie’s  is probably the only bar that I can publicly talk about my raging emotions. 

Enough about me…  Looks like everyone was out Christmas shopping cause there  wasn’t very many people at Charlie’s.  Surprisingly, there was not even one team playing  pool or darts- everyone that was in the bar was out on the patio playing trivia with us.

12-23-08-018They a funny couple of guys.  They actually keep track of all the other teams scores, to see how they’re doing throughout the game (and also helps me to double check my math. lol).  They sure know their Christmas trivia.  They won the first round and lost the pitcher in the tie breaker of the third.  Jason returned to JT  tonight.  Thanks for the Christmas present, Tim.  Have a good Christmas if I don’t see you Thursday.

12-23-08-021We were missing a couple on the team, but Hickmasms picked a difficult name that always gave me a problem.  They won the tie breaker in third round, but was nice enough to gift it to another team.  Hopefully I get to see you guys again next week!

12-23-08-020Third place went to Alleycat.  One of the players had just come back from vacation and another was currently on vacation.  So they were down a regular, but still won the second round.  Hurry back, Jake!

We had some other teams that played but didn’t earn any free stuff 😦  Sorry guys.

12-23-08-017Phyllis & Skott had a strong game this week.  Phyllis always seems to recruit whoever is sitting near him to be on his team.  He must have been drunk, cause I managed to get Phyllis to dance at the end of the game.  See you soon.  If you’re not at Charlie’s on Christmas, I’m gonna be pissed.

I didn’t get their picture, but Minds Eye played off and on.  Dante, a guy I haven’t seen in forever, was the head of that team.  Come back more often.

12-23-08-022I’m not sure if she missed him or she was just checking up on him, but our DJ had company.  He helped out with a couple of the questions, but Jon’s Mom wasn’t able to score any free beer tonight.  I haven’t seen her in months!  Last time she was here, she got her picture taken with a hottie beer boy.

Back Alleywas pretty blitzed and only answered a few questions.  He got confused on one of the questions and thinks that Tom Seleck has been in Playboy magazine.  It’s all good.  See you next time you wander in to play.

Thanks for the great night, you guys are absolutely terrific players and friends! (how sad and sappy, must be due to the impending holiday).

Tuesdays at The Glenn with Preacher December 23, 2008

Hiya everyone and I hope you had a great week.  This Tuesday at The Glenn we has a rip roaring night with a great crowd and stumping questions, a few in dispute, but all in all a great night.  Round 1 and the victor by a narrow margin is team Blumpkins, vanquished from a previous night but back for revenge and taking it down.  Round 2 and the avid and effervescent team Dazed stepped up to earn their prize.  On to round 3 and this one we get a tie.  Teams Mad Dog, long time favorites, and team Dazed, the less well known but equally feared got locked up.  The answers came in and in a near miss, Dazed took down yet another round.  Special mentions to teams Snowballs and Win 1 for the Baby the boy-girl opposing teams (Snowballs annihilated the girls’ team) as well as Tough Trucks, ADD, and the always welcome FOP.

I hope you all had a good night, I know I did!

This past Tuesday was just fantastic with great teams, a great host (obviously), and a great bar.  Round 1 and the oft present but intermittent winners team FOP took it down.  Teams Gods of Wrong Answers, Dazed and Mad Dog were in close pursuit but just couldn’t keep up.  Round 2 and things got a little rough.  Teams Gods of Wrong Answers, Angry Dragon, and Derka Derka all got caught in a tie for first.  But alas, Brian’s knowlege knows no bounds and team Gods of Wrong Answers put it in the bag.  On to round 3 and the victors of the round are the underestimated Hottie Toddie.  Special mentions to teams Pimp ‘n’ Ho, J&A, Monkey, Coyote Arm, and Help Me for their contributions.

See you all next week!

It was a smaller but steadfast group.  Started with 9 teams and 6 stayed till the bitter (cold) end.

We tested their holiday trivia knowledge and found everyone was up for the challenge.

For first round there was a 3-way tie between RamRod, Keepers of the Flame and BoilersKOTF ended up winning the tie-break.

We lost Boilers shortly after round 1 which was a shame because they were showing potential.  Legacy also played a good first round but had to jet.

For Round two we had a super, super close round.  2 points separated all the teams, and we had a 4-way tie for 2nd; Bailey Woozles, I Wet Myself, Dat Baby Don’t Look Like Me, and RamRod.  But it was shaping up to be a great night for Keepers, as they won the 2nd round as well.

I added a special quick blitz round for a pitcher of beer and Bailey Woozles were the quickest.

I have to give a shout out to Some Like It Hot, although they were never really in the hunt, they were by far the funniest, accumulating 21 styles points for the evening.

And also thanks to Ramrod for teaching me a thing or two about Frisbee Golf. I’m always up for learning new things!

So with 3rd round, teams were all over the place.  Dat Baby, which would normally be in the forefront was far out of the lead.  I Wet Myself hovered in 2nd place almost all evening. Newbies, Team Umm… showed that they had the skills but just needed to be there for the full evening to take a prize. Keepers started with their full team for once which made all the difference as they tied for first with Bailey Woozles for round 3.  KOTF was not to be denied, as they won the tie-break.

And having won all 3 rounds, it was no surprise that they had the top score overall.

Everyone’s going to have to step up their game for next week, to keep the Keepers from running away with it all.

Have a warm, safe, and happy holiday and I’ll see you all next week!

Ciao for now,

12181Well, we’re a week away from Christmas and I had requests for some Holiday-themed trivia, so I delivered.  I thought the set was moderately easy but the players seem to struggle early on. And with the countdown to Christmas underway, we had a lighter turnout than usual.

We started and ended with seven teams.  Two teams separated themselves from the rest of the pack in the first round.  2C4B finished in 2nd just a half point behind Cheater, Cheater 4Skin Eater who won the first prize of the evening.

Slap Your Mama is the only 2-player team I’ve encountered that could not agree on a single answer.  At least you provided some entertainment for the evening!  And Not Buzzed Yet, played on-again-off-again.  So it was not surprising when they called it quits after round 1.  Thanks for playing though… come back with a few more players!

Round 2 brought two other teams to the forefront.  Munchkin Punchers took the round with Bolivian Hard Hat not far behind.

A shout out to 2C4B for being good sports.  I know the cell phone accusations bothered you, and I understand the circumstances were unavoidable.  Sorry.  I hope to see you all back again, you had a pretty decent game going and would have loved to see you finish.

The second round saw the departure of another semi-regular team, Shuttlecock Renegades. They couldn’t seem to get on a roll tonite, but I’m sure we’ll see ’em back in the swing of things on some other Thursday.

Round 3 was when things got serious.  We had regulars, Hanzilla and Team 34, show up, and they were determined to win the round.  They were joined by newbies, Donny Bonaducci and Perky Brats.  So with the teams that exited and the ones that joined, we were back up to 7 teams for the final round.

Sorry, Donny Bonaducci.  I assumed it was DAnny Bonaducci, and didn’t catch the play on words until too late.  Don’t hold it against me!  Come back, come back!

Bolivian Hard Hat tried to get Hanzilla to join them for the final round, and too bad they didn’t join forces… they might have won the 3rd round as a team.  Instead, the formidable, Team 34 took the round.

For points overall, there were only 3 teams that started and ended the evening.  Bolivian Hard Hat for the 2nd week in a row, took the prize, followed by Cheater-Cheater and then Munchkin Punchers.

I think this is the only evening that I’ve hosted where the winner of each round and the overall point winner were all different. UNUSUAL!!!  At least that means that most everyone won something.

Thanks everyone for coming out.  Have a safe and happy holiday and we’ll see you in the New Year.

Ciao for now,

Tuesday Night Dtown Sans Monkees? December 19, 2008

Hey guys thanks to everyone who came out on Tuesday, we had a great time!  This was the first time in maybe 6 months we haven’t had the Monkees there but some other wonderful teams showed up in their stead!  LLUA came out with the gold (actually the staff put together the winning team but..) after winning a tiebreak with Moose Knuckle Buffet who also played a stellar game!  We had some new teams, God Save the Queen played great but fell off in the second round to lose the game by 2.  Trials and Tribulations were a lot of fun and had a wonderful third round but couldn’t quite catch up by the end!  I know next week is the week of Christmas but to me that means you probably don’t have to work Wednesday and should come see me at Old C’s:) Hope to see you all there!

Gettin’ creative on the microphone December 19, 2008

This week at Jay’s Grille and Bar in Thornton we learned that the more inappropriate the team names, the more awesome they sound on the microphone!! I would say one team in particular, and I’ll try to list off as many of the names as possible. Jay’s had some totally sweet drink specials, $3 Dos Lunas margs, $2.50 Land Shark bottles, and $ Absolut Pear martinis (yum). Thanks to everyone for playing, merry Xmas and HAPPY HANUKKAH!

Stray Katz are totally getting the hang of this game--every week they come they bring another player, and this week they stayed competitive throughout and snatched first place in the end. I know they'll use that $25 gift certificate towards Jay's well.

These two!! There should be a sign that says 'if you know all the right answers, then you should probably be playing!!' I think we'll be seeing them again, maybe turning in some answers and playing for prizes next time.

Here's the team I'm talking about. Every round they were inspired by a new team name. We started with the Cheaters, then it went on to Losers/Ringers/Pornstars/the Pornstars with 3 Golden Balls (inspired by the answer to a question)/The Pornstars with 3 Golden Rusty Balls. I stopped keeping track after that.

Meatloaf, you guys were a threat throughout the game. Thank you Byron (plaid), for all the nice compliments, on each answer sheet--I'm glad you like my shoes, my shirt, and yes I'm single ;)

Ant Edgar (sorry I think one's your nickname, but I think they're funnier put together), you were a very impressive one man show! Ant Edgar came in third overall, so he got a drink on the house for high points by a single player team.Thanks for finally letting the lady buy you a drink for once!
