Halloween is my favorite holiday by quite a bit. When I was a kid this used to really bother my mom but the spooky, horror aspects of it have always been really fun to me. It was exciting the first night I ever played Geeks Who Drink because it was the Halloween quiz at Congress and I was coming off a bad break up. Quiz was super fun and I dug the Halloween theme. This is my first time getting to do a Halloween quiz since I became a Quizmaster since I was between venues last year and I was pretty excited about it. It was a great time tonight and I thank all the teams that came out to play. I love all you guys and I appreciate you coming out every week.

Here’s the recap:

Round 1 was At Least it’s Not a Remake and teams had to name the horror movie being described. Most teams killed this round with a lot of perfect rounds. Only three teams didn’t come up with a perfect round so there wasn’t much of a consensus on wrong answers here. I was a little perplexed to see Ghost Rider on the list as it is really not a horror movie at all. Sure, it is horrifying but that is mostly the quality of the movie and wasted potential of a cool character. I really wish someone could make a cool Ghost Rider movie but at this point I am just giving up.

The first audio round was No Relation and it was songs by artists or bands that share part of their names. This round went a bit rough on most teams but there were a couple of high scoring jokers including one team that pulled a perfect round with a joker. Most teams got Stuck With You by Huey Lewis & the News. When I was a kid my mom would let me listen to Weird Al, the Monkees, Genesis, and Huey Lewis. I never really mispronounced ‘address’ because of this song but Lewis pronouncing it Adrayeess really didn’t help me much in my formative years.

Round 3 was Saw or Florida. I described a horrific way to die and teams had to tell me if it was something from a Saw movie or if it happened to a real person in Florida. So I have really never seen the Saw movies aside from the first one and last one. I am not a fan of either of those but holy shit this round was horrifying. The stuff in Saw didn’t bother me very much but a dude dying from choking to death on cockroaches in a contest? What the serious fuck? And a guy beating his girlfriend to death with his Xbox 360 because he thought that she had control of his spirit? Is there something in the water down there?

Round 4 was Shakin’ the Treehouse and it was about the inspiration for Simpson’s Treehouse of Horror segments. Scores were pretty strong here by and large. Some teams got tripped up by the Nightmare at 20,000 feet question thinking it was Lithgow but that was the movie. The original actor was William Shatner. Daniel Webster was another one that gave teams problems. Overall, though, this was a solid round for most teams.

The visual round was Twice the Dead and teams had to name the character with two guns. This was a pretty rough one for most teams. I was kind of baffled by how many people thought the Crow was Batman. I mean the Crow is sort of an obscure character and movie if you aren’t into that sort of thing but Batman is pretty iconic and has never looked like a killer mime in a leather trench coat.  The Doctor Who pic threw people a fair amount as well.

Round 6 was Trick or Treat Yourself and it was a before and after round. A lot of teams did well here and that is always amazing to me because I have a pretty hard time with this sort of question. I was pretty impressed with the number of people who got Reeses Pieces of Eight.

Round 7 was Questions about Questions and it was all clips of movies in which characters are asking questions. This was another strong round but most teams missed The Wild One and Treasure of the Sierra Madre. My favorite out of this bunch was the clip from Seven. I know I am not supposed to think ‘What’s in the box?’ is funny but I really do. Maybe it is just my own effort to offset how horrifying this is but at any rate I think Brad Pitt’s delivery is hilarious. There might be something wrong with me.

Round 8 was Random Knowledge as usual and I was a little sad that it got away from Halloween themed questions but there were some teams with high scores that shifted the rankings with jokers. I was impressed by how well most teams did on the states with the longest land border to the east. The rest of the questions were pretty hit and miss. Overall it was a strong round for a lot of teams.

At the end of the night, The Man, the Myth, The Legend took the top spot with Nilbog is Goblin Spelled Backward coming in second. Mauricurius took the email bonus question and then we got to the costume contest. I was hoping for more of a turn out in costumes, but the ones we had were awesome. At the end of it all, a Tobias Funke costume took top honors, with two Dharma Initiative members taking second, and the Outsiders winning third. Everyone who came in costume was awesome and I appreciate it a lot!

Thanks again to everyone who came out tonight and I hope to see you all next week at Geeks Who Drink!

So what the hell? It is October and so far the horror movies we have had have been bullshit. Who wants to see Ouja? I guess Annabelle did pretty well but I just can’t support that kind of ridiculousness. If it wasn’t trying to pass itself off as a true story I would have no problem but it does and that is infuriatingly ridiculous. It is such a bleak horror season that they are re-releasing the original Saw. What the fuck Hollywood? Wasn’t there at least a middling horror movie to remake or something? Horns comes out on Halloween proper though so at least there is that. I love the book upon which it was based so here’s hoping on that one.

Here’s the recap:

Round 1 was Here, Let Us Subtitle That for You and it was a round about memoirs. I gave the title of the memoir and a little synopsis and teams had to give me the author. The game started out a bit rough with this round as even the high scores were pretty low. The one consistently incorrect answer was teams offering Bill Clinton for Hillary Clinton. This isn’t really surprising given how poorly Hillary’s book did. It is pretty amusing how many teams put Lindsay Lohan instead of Drew Barrymore just because that means those people think that Lohan can read and write. Hilarious.

The first audio round was pretty rough for teams as well. The theme was Hey Everybody, We’re All Gonna Get Laid. This title, and how wrong it is, was roughly as depressing as the scores here. The highest score here was 12.The one that disturbed me the most was how many teams missed Liar by Henry Rollins. He is one of my heroes so I am pretty biased but holy shit that is a good song. Great video too.

Round 3 was a Sooner or Later Round in which I give three clues about an Academy Award winning movie and teams can turn in for double points or wait for two more clues and only get one point each. These rounds are always pretty much a wash. The people who turn in early are usually flat with the people who turn in with the extra hints. This round was no exception and there were no particularly high scores here. Pretty much everyone got Titanic. I will leave that to you to determine if that is good or not.

Round 4 was Crafts and Christians and again we had pretty modest scores here. Few teams knew who Kirk Franklin is and apparently Christian Slater has been way more forgotten than I thought. Too bad for Happy Harry Hardon. Everybody knows man, everybody rolls with their fingers crossed.

Round 5 was the visual round and the theme was Grounded for Life. We gave pictures of flightless birds and teams gave us mostly incorrect answers. This quiz was tough tonight guys. In fairness two teams got eight out of eight here but the rest of the scores were more modest. As an aside, I really like the name Cassowary. Just saying.

Round 6 was McDonald’s, Monopoly, and Other Stupid Contests. Teams faired a little bit better here than in some other rounds but I was still left with the perplexing answer by one team that suggested that Hamburglar ran McDonaldland when it was Mayor McCheese. And Big Mac is the law around those parts and he is responsible for putting that Hamburgaling bastard into burgerjail. I don’t get why this is hard. Also I sort of wish this would be a Netflix original series. I would binge watch the shit out of a hardcore procedural following Big Mac taking down the criminal element. Like when Grimace finally snaps and eats the living fuck out of the fry guys? Hell yeah.

Round 7 was an audio round titled Who’s Casey Kasem Rambling About? This was another rough one for teams as they had to name who Casey Kasem was talking about. The big loser here was En Vogue. Most teams thought it was Wilson Phillips or, alternately, a blank line. Everyone got the Police though, which is good because there are only so many bands Sting has been in.

Round 8 was still pretty tough but some well-placed jokers changed the fortunes of some teams. There were no questions that everyone missed it was just generally tough. Lots of people knew about Flannery O’Connor teaching a chicken to walk backwards thought and that is pretty cool.

When it was all said and done, Ebola Takes Manhattan took top honors and Gout: My Greatest Leadership Quality came in second. It is kind of weird that the two winning teams were named for diseases but who am I to judge. Mari took a spiffy cat book for the email bonus question and it was pretty sweet.

Don’t forget that the Ghostbusters Theme Quiz is happening on Saturday at 8pm. Aaaaannnnd don’t forget that next week is the day before Halloween and we are doing a costume contest so show up in costume and you will get some prizes! See you then!

Halloween is almost upon us! I love this time of year even if it was like 94 degrees out today. The excuse for spookiness and dressing up in costumes is stronger than how uncomfortable the continued bullshit heat is. With quiz the day before Halloween this year, we are going to have a costume contest with prizes that will probably suck but you know, it is the journey not the destination.

Here’s the recap:

Round 1 was e.g. Echo Golf and it all the answers were in the NATO phonetic alphabet. Teams did pretty well here but India and Mike caused some problems for some teams. People largely got Whiskey though which is very fitting.

The first audio round was Who Doesn’t Like Soft Jazz and apparently the answer was plenty of tonight’s teams as scores were pretty low across the board. I guess soft jazz covers of songs aren’t nearly as easy as I thought they would be. Breakfast in America tripped a lot of teams up as did Gypsy Woman by Crystal Waters. No one got that one at all so either that was a hard one to decipher or no one knew about that song. Not sure which.

Round 3 was a speed round about professional sports teams with colors in their titles that didn’t included the name of the city. So that put the Greenbay Packers right out. Teams did pretty well here for the most part but there were a few teams I am convinced have never heard of sports in the first place let alone any particular team names.

Round 4 was Great Caesar’s Ghost and it was a round on Caesars and ghosts. This was another round with big scores with intimate knowledge of Coldplay, Hogwarts, Field of Dreams, and Kaisers. Some teams struggled with the Ides of March in roman numerals and many got Pontius Pilate with Caesar Augustus.

The visual round was BooTube and teams had to name the show depicted in pictures from their Halloween episode.  Only three teams failed to get a perfect round here so clearly you cats know your Halloween episodes. It was both good and sad to see the Freaks & Geeks pic. I miss that show.  

Round 6 was Coke, Brothers, and the Koch Brothers.  Just like it sounds it was a round on the soft drink company, male siblings and the Koch Brothers. Can I just say how difficult it was not to pronounce their name ‘cock brothers?’ I am a little disturbed by this because why is my brain short-cutting to ‘cock?’ Do I say cock too much? Why do I say it so much? What is this crazy hold cock has over me? Wait, that came out wrong…

Round 7 was the Kinsey Scale and teams had to name movie or TV show with bisexual or sexually fluid characters. This was a pretty rough round for most teams. Not a lot of teams recognized Glee, Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Game of Thrones which is too bad because a lot of teams are apparently working around the penis.

Round 8 was, as always, Random knowledge and it was here that fortunes were made and lost with every team but one jokering here. Scores here were not great but in some cases it was enough to turn the tables and in other cases it wasn’t nearly enough. No one knew that Dr Dolittle’s two-headed gazelle-unicorn cross was called a Pushmi-pullyu. Not a lot of teams knew what unspayed female cats were called. And of course what they were called is Queen. Seriously, how was this not obvious.

As the smoke of the heated battle began to clear and the last teams stood pregnant with the joys of victory. It was also still a crowded battlefield as we had a tie for first. Magnets! How Do They Work? faced down Q Money for a sudden death round…only to tie again. Another tie breaker question was what it took for a winner to emerge and Magnets stepped up to claim total victory. Scores were very close tonight with just one point standing between the top two teams and the third place team. It was an exciting end to quiz. James snagged some GWD stickers in the email bonus  portion . It was another great night at Quiz!

Remember the Ghostbusters theme quiz is come on October 25th. Check this website for details as far as time, location and rules go. Have a great week and I hope to see you next week.
