A new team on the scene takes the cake Wednesday night at the Rugby House in Plano.  Team We.  And would you know it? One of the members of the team was my mom’s friend.  It’s a small world after all!!

A big breakthrough for the Dirty Germans this week.  As a lot of you may know, the Dirty Germans are known as the “Best Worst Tie Breaking Team in America”.  Well, guess what?  They finally won a tie breaker the first round.  Great job guys.  Will this be an on going success or was it a fluke?  We will see in due time.  See you all next week! Holla at ya boy.

New Team on the Block. Team We.

The combo of trivia plus poker makes The Castle the awesomest place to be on Wednesday nights! The evening highlight was most definitely the overall tie between the Royal Bitches and Team Green, and congrats to the Royal Bitches for winning that tie breaker!

Way to go Royal Bitches, the overall winners!

Define Statutory was just as much a team of winners, coming in first in both rounds 1 and 2

The Mixed Mutts, aside from almost pinning me to the wall with their darts (maybe my fault because i stepped in front of the target numberous times) came in fourth overall. Fabulous job!

Team Green came SO close in every round, I have no doubt they have great things in their future.

A much more quiet room than last week, local heavies Samson’s Keepers lifted the gold medal ($20 tab at the bar) Wednesday night at City Pub. Bruce Campbell was unlucky to leave empty-handed. Green Oak once again had a great game for a one-man team. Good Day had a great start but had to leave early. They had been there since 5! Congrats to Samson’s Keepers, the competition will be gunning for you next week!

Beers and Beads! February 18, 2010

We had a great time at Exchange Tavern this week celebrating Fat Tuesday and laying down some serious trivia!

In round 1 we quickly found out that the team to watch for the night was certainly Lemurs. They definitly knew their Mardi Gras trivia!  Not far behind was Schnauzers and Scary Monkey Show.

Round 2 brought in some more teams but none could defeat Lemurs who stole the show again!

Finally in round 3 Rage Forever came in first but having not been there in round 1 it wasn’t enough to take over the lead from Lemurs who won the game over all.  Jameson came in second and battled all night!

Thanks for a great night! See you all next week, same bat time, same bat place!

Lemurs sporting beads and winning big!

The Meth Lab Is Exploding was a late but fun addition to the game

Team Dulles wishes you a happy Faustnaucht day!

Jameson trying to hide their computers... don't worry, they didn't use them!

Rage Forever meant business when they decided to play!

Team Mardi Gras kept growing and growing and....

Saturday night must have been the night everyone wanted to have a good time because I had more teams than EVER on Valentine’s Eve!! (22 teams total!)

Round 1 was a tie between 5 Buck Box and My Package Needs a Stimulus but it was the 5 Buck Box that won the round and free pitcher.

Round 2 added many more teams and so the heat was on our leaders.  Again the round ended in a tie but this time it was between Just the Tip and XR4TI. The winner of the tie break… with an answer of zero… was XR4TI even though the real answer was pretty far off, Just the Tip was even further off.

Round 3 was awesome with many teams hitting their stride and getting high scores.  Just the Tip won the round and had a bit of redemption from the previous face off.  However, overall it was XR4TI that took home the grand prize with 5 Buck Box coming in second!

Thanks to everyone for coming out! See you all next week, same bat time, same bat place!

PHOTOS!

The Peanut Gallery... maybe a little too much drinky drinky, not enough answer answer

XR4TI came in second! Congrats!

Don't look so confused, 5 Buck Box! You won!

Guess the team name!

Slackers had a great run all night!

Bologna Salad was back for another go at first!

Castration Station back for more!

As always, Yes That made a proud appearance!

Barnburner Ends in 3 Way Tie at City Pub February 12, 2010

We had a great room Wednesday night at City Pub! There were a total of 8 teams mixing it up for bragging rights and bar tabs. It was a very dramatic game that was finished by a three way tie. The tiebeaker itself (avg cost of a Superbowl 30 second ad?) proved to be a close affair.  It was fun just being in the room and watching the see-saw battle of wits go down.

In the end  Yeti and Snowman, Facekickers, and Gadsen Society were all tied for first. Yeti and Snowman came out ahead, with  Facekickers in 2nd and one man team Gadsen Society in third. Killian took 4th, followed by Flying Douche, Green Oak, Swahili, and IDK.

A First For Me and A Huge Fake Out Tonight At the Rugby House in Plano!!! February 10, 2010

Tonight was a great night at the Rugby House.  The Dirty Germans took the 1st round with 9 points.  The 2nd round got interesting.  There were 4 teams that tied in the 2nd round, and this has never happened for me yet. So naturally we had a tie breaker question.  It was between My Couch Pulls Out But I Don’t, Deanna, Dirty Germans, and I Shit Toothpaste (*Side note*  I shit tooth past came up with that name because before we started one of them said they ship toothpaste and I thought they had said Shit Toothpaste.  Pretty sweet)  Anyways, I got all my answers in.  You probably already know that the Dirty Germans did not win because they are known as the “Best, Worst Tie Breaking Team in America”.  Some day Dirty Germans.  Anyways,  I declared the winner of the 2nd round. “Taking it for the 2nd round, make some noise: I Shit Toothpaste!!!” Naturally, they jumped for joy followed by a quick feeling of disappointment and sadness. I had misread the answers and in actuality team My Couch Pulls Out But I Don’t won.  They loved it because it crushed I Shit Toothpaste’s heart.  My bad guys.  My bad.  Anyways, we had a blast Wednesday night.  We are now changing the time from 8 pm to 7 pm.  So remember to show up earlier!!! Adam is taking over for me next week because I am going skiing for my first time ever. Wish me luck!!

Also, I am going to take this opportunity to share a video I made on youtube with you guys. It is an audition for a thingy on youtube. I am trying to get a lot of views on it.  Please leave some positive comments and rate it 5 stars.  I would really appreciate it.  Enjoy and and don’t hesitate to watch my other youtube videos.  Here is the link…

Friday Night Trivia Smackdown – Old C’s Superior February 6, 2010

A cold frosty night couldnt stop the fun train that is Buzzwordz trivia here in Old C’s Superior.

With mini-tours being won in abundance, a packed crowd looked to TVs above to answer questions and maybe get some free stuff!

1st round went to Drunk Monkey after a tie-breaker with Last Place. This would foreshadow things to come.

2nd round went to Drunk Monkey as well, edging out Last Place by one point. Pants on the Ground, Mojo, and Miyagi Do-Joes had great performances as well.

The final round was tight, as a three-way tie was needed to be broken. Miyagi Do-Joes, Last Place & Drunk Monkey all were within close ranges of the tie, but Drunk Monkey completes the sweep of all three rounds.

1st Place – Drunk Monkey
2nd Place – Last Place
3rd Place – Miyagi Do-Joes

Best Team Names: Buzzed Nerds, Red Rockets (complete with dog art all night)

The Castle was rockin tonight as we had another great game of trivia!

We had some new blood in the building, and they were chomping at the bit to play, and even started out strong as Cracker won the first round with 9 points.

The Royal Bitches, playing with house money ;),  came in strong in the 2nd round, winning by two points.

It came down to a tie-breaker in the final round between The Royal Bitches and Team Green, with Green taking the coveted pitcher of beer.

1st Place – Royal Bitches
2nd Place – Team Green
3rd Place – Deep Throat

Yeti and Snowman Prove Truly Indomitable February 4, 2010

We had a great crowd last night at City Pub! We had some new faces and some old mixing it up. It was all Yeti and Snowman however as they absolutely poured on the brainpower on the other unlucky trivia combatants.

True there were some extra credit available, but for a team to score 46 is an achievement for any trivia squad. These guys started early and did not let up. That’s not to say that the other teams were slouches, far from it. Samson’s Keepers took second, As Work Request took third, Potato Jam in fourth, single man team Oak Dog took fifth.

Have you guys heard about City Pub as Saints Superbowl Central? There will be $2.50 oors and Coors Lights with a free buffet and jello shots!  Beat that if you dare. I’m going fo the ‘Aints!
