A lot of times we go down to the wire at Buzzwordz Trivia.  There are plenty of teams with equally matched brainpower. We’ve had tiebreakers for tiebreakers. Not so Wednesday evening at City Pub. Yeti and Snowman absolutely wrecked shop on all comers, winning by a margin of 15 points.

There were plenty of other teams there, but none could hold a candle to our champions. Awesome O’Possum took 2nd place in what would have normally been a pretty strong effort. Shootists took third, Stella fourth, Samson Keepers in fifth, with Turd Cutters and El Guapo closing down the ranks.

It’s great to see so many enthusiastic trivia people making the trip to City Pub. The food is great, the staff friendly, and you cann’t beat $3 martinis for a cheap buzz!

Weird Experience and Awesome Response Tonight at Two Brothers in Plano!!!! January 26, 2010

Of course, it was another great night at 2 brothers.  Big up for Team Death Row taking the 1st, 2nd and 3rd round tonight.  Weird thing happened tonight.  I thought a team was trying to cheat me tonight.  I thought they were taking me for a sucker.  I kept getting 2 answers for the same question from what I thought was the same team, which was Team Short Bus.  Once I noticed, I got on the Mic and called them out.  They seemed confused.  It turns out that there were two different teams with the exact same name: Short Bus.  Pretty crazy huh? I don’t know if that has ever happened.  Anyways, we figured it out.  They were told apart by a couple of tweaks.  Short Bus 1 and The Short Bus.  So it was all good.

Pretty funny response tonight as well.  The question was, “In the lame & fascist game Trivial Pursuit, original version, what categories were represented by the following colors?: blue, yellow, brown”  Well, I think this person misunderstood the word fascist and took it for racist because her response was, “Blue: Avatars, Yellow: Asians, Brown: Mexicans”  The crowd bursted out laughing.  It is all good though.  The girl that gave me that response was a Mexican so it’s not racist 😉  Anyways, thats that.  I will see you guys next week.

Crazy Tie Breaker At Two Brother’s in Plano Tuesday Night!!!! January 20, 2010

Well, of course, tonight at Two Brothers was a great and fun success.   We made history tonight (at Two Brothers anyways).  For the first round we had a three way tie breaker.  Believe it or not, that was not the cool part.  The tie breaker came down between Beer Me, I’m Here for The Gang Bang, and Ramrod. The question was, “How many people currently have a Facebook profile? ” (basically)  Anyways, team Ramrod was out after their guess because the other two teams were closer.  So here is the cool part! Team Im here for the Gang Bang and Beer Me put the exact same answer: 100 million.  This has never happened before since I had been hosting.  So I decided that the two teams were going to do a Rock, Paper, Scissors tie breaker.  They each picked their best player to represent for the team and I made them come dead center to battle it out.  I told them it was best 2 out of 3.  Funny thing is, they shot the exact same thing about 5 or 6 times in a row.  It was pretty crazy.  So I told them, “Screw that, we are doing best 1 out of 1.”  Finally, team Beer Me got team Im Here for the Gang Bang with paper over rock.  It was pretty intense.  Team Im here for the Gang Bang got the last laugh when they won 1st over all with a close second team Ramrod Anyways, I thought I would share that with you all.  I thought that was pretty cool.  We had a great time and I hope to see all the old faces and some new faces next week at Two Brothers in Plano on Tuesdays at 8pm.

Ricoh here. We had a great night of trivia here at Old Chicago Thornton!

As always, the crowd was singing and yelling, and even a dance or two erupted during the course of the night.

The Irish Banditos took their first ever tie-breaker over Phred to win the first round.

A four-way tie had to be settled between Cass/Bet/Mark, LSU Two, Irish Banditos, and the round two winner – Cheating Cheaters!

The third and final round was a high scoring one, with four teams scoring over 20 pts. In the end, Cheating Cheaters took the tie break by correctly guessing to the decimal how many James’ there are in the USA!

Props to our other teams, Brew-n-Dew Crew, beer IQ, 3 Wise Men, Loners, Reggie’s Bush, and more!

When it was all over, the Irish Banditos took the 1st place prize by ONE POINT(!!) over Cheating Cheaters!

We took a break the previous week due to inclement weather. It was great to see all the faithful back in attendance Wednesday night.

It started slow but built into a fun night of trivia. AS Work Request gave a spirited challenge, but it was all Fancy Ketchup Enthusiasts from the get go. Winning by a margin of 6 they won rounds 1 and 2 before coasting to the championship. Da Boys came in 3rd McFly’s 4th followed by Tony, then ACE.

Please join us next week for $3 martinis and SE Denver’s most competitive trivia game!

Back at it at Exchange Tavern this week and we had a great time! Despite some technical difficulties we had a fierce competition between Moms Gone Wild, And in 1st Place, and Safety Baby. And in 1st Place actually DID come in first place in round 1 but after gaining some speed Moms Gone Wild shot ahead and never looked back.  They won the next 2 rounds and that was enough to make them grab the top spot for the night!

Thanks for coming out everyone! I’ll see you all next week, same bat time, same bat place!

Moms Gone Wild... and throwing up gang signs!

And in 1st Place actually came in second... weird!

Our camera shy Safety Babies has one fine lookin beer!

Saturday was packed at Old C’s and I was happy to be back from my holiday trip for the first trivia night of 2010!

We started with 15 (!) teams in round one and it was very close between Slackers, Dick Shavings and Gangsta Bitch BarbieGB Barbie came in first but with that many teams so close, it was shaping up to be an exciting night!

Yes That, On the Ball, Ram Rod, and Mycaw Kizhard all put up a fight for round 2 but once again it was GB Barbie who took that prize!

They were on a roll, but in round 3 Dick Shavings found their groove and gave GB Barbie a run for their money.  Dick Shavings won the round by 4 points which was enough to make up for the difference between them and GB Barbie and won overall as well!! GB Barbie took home a well deserved second place also beating out On the Ball Mycaw and Kizhard… and no I won’t say it faster… !!

I hope you all had a great weekend and I’ll see you all next week same bat time, same bat place.

Slackers (but their's only one of him!)

Gangsta Bitch Barbie rocked rounds 1 and 2 AND came in second overall for the night!

Mr. Bigg had a great time and nailed all the geography questions!

Our winners for the night... Dick Shavings!

Mycaw Kizhard... he must not be from around here...

On the Ball was just shy of placing!

Yes That back for more trivia in the new year!

New Year’s Eve + Trivia = Lonely January 4, 2010

Before we welcomed in the new year we needed to play a bit o trivia first!!

We had 4 teams join for the beginning of the game and GS won before sneaking out.  I would have given them a hard time about it but it was New Year’s Eve AND their Anniversary so they get a free pass.

Beer Bellies gook home round 2 beating out Troy.

In round 3 a new team joined in and started kicking everyone out of the way.  Kenny’s Mean Face not only won round 3 but did so well that they won the whole game!  Troy took home second.

I hope everyone had a great (and safe) New Year’s Eve!

There will not be any trivia this Thursday because of the championship bowl game so I will see you in 2 weeks 1-14-10 same bat time, same bat place!

Beer Bellies were stylin for the New Year!

Team Troy came in second for the night!

Kenny's Mean Face swooped in to win the game!

Eric looking oh so stylish in his fake tux shirt for New Year's!
