With March around the corner, and the closing in of me being even older than I am now, I am happy that we are finally exiting the film wasteland that is February. There were some good movies like Kingsman: The Secret Service and…well really just Kingsman: The Secret Service. But it was badass as all hell. Seriously. March doesn’t have a ton of great material either but it is just a hop, skip, and a jump to April which brings us Furious 7 which I can’t wait for and then that is just a blink away from Avengers Age of Ultron. They are so close I can almost taste it. Holy shit.

Here’s the recap:

Round 1 was House of Cards in which none of the questions are about the show but rather about card games. Most teams dominated in this round suggesting that a lot of you cats know your card games. Five Card Draw gave some teams trouble and the number of cards in Euchre tripped up some teams as well but by and large teams spanked this round like it got off on that sort of thing.

The first audio round was Stop and Go in which songs all had those words in them. Teams did well here with a lot of 12 point jokers and one 15 point joker. The Village People and Jane’s Addiction threw people the most while most teams knew Let It Go by the Wi-ckedly talented Adele Daz…er…Idina Menzel and everyone knew My Heart Will Go On by Celine Dion.

Round 3 was a speed round Like Making Love in a Canoe and teams had 2 ½ minutes to name any 8 of the top 10 specific bestselling domestic beers in the U.S. Man this was a depressing list. It bums me out that so many Americans drink cans of piss but here it is. Teams didn’t do great here which is good news for geeks and drinking.

Round 4 was Paws, Knees, and Indiana and it was about all that stuff. This was another strong round for teams. The Music Man was a commonly missed answer as was Alaska. Most teams caught the sarcasm in the question about Garfield and most teams knew that Lillian Jackson Braun wrote about a detective assisted by cats. I imagine that those mysteries were pretty easy since it was most like the cats who did it.

The visual round was All Ur Awards Are Belong to Beyonce and teams had to tell us what awards show was being interrupted by Kanye. Teams were about half and half here with a lot of teams thinking the People’s Choice award was the Grammy or the American Music Award. The Pulitzer was a problem for a lot of teams as well with all of them thinking that it was a graduation ceremony. Think of all the degrees that Beyonce would have if she deserved all of those!

Round 6 was Classic Novels As Described By Someone Who Hasn’t Read Them. This was a real crowd pleasing round even if it went kind of rough on teams. Jude the Obscure was apparently obscure enough to dupe most teams as only one of them got the answer. Call of the Wild was another one that caused problems.

Round 7’s audio round was movie clips in which the characters are discussing recipes. This round was a bit shaky with Scary Movie 2 and Waiting for Guffman causing problems.

Round 8 was Random Knowledge and it went kind of rough on teams. The Four Freedoms outlined by FDR really fucked teams. Not too many knew about Mr Hooper on Sesame Street which makes me sad. Most teams knew Juno though so they have that going for them.

Tonight was a night of ties with a four way tie for second at the first scoring break, a two way tie for second at the third scoring break and a tie for second and a tie for fourth at the final score. Chekhov’s Gun took first place decisively but It’s Gold and White and Those Who Can’t had to engage in the time honored tradition of the dance off. The teams danced valiantly but when it was all over It’s Gold and White took second place with resounding applause. Leila won the email bonus question and took home a sweet tote bag.

That is it for another week of Geeks Who Drink! I hope to see everyone again next week!

Patsquatch is the author of four books and three movies. In addition he is an avid gamer, artist, musician, actor, martial artist, and film buff. 

Normally I drone on about god knows what in this space before the recap but tonight I am going to forgo all that and get right to it. So here is the recap:

Round 1 was Help ‘em Out, Vanna and all the answers were made up entirely of the letters R,S,T,L,N and E. Scores were divided here with a solid number of teams managing perfect scores while the other half not doing so well. Letters to Cleo threw some teams for a loop as did Nestle and Teller.

The first audio round was What Are You and the scores were decent here but not a lot of stand outs really. I Am the Walrus by the Beatles was pretty much automatic for teams while Helen Reddy and I Am the Highway by Audioslave caused some problems. A depressing number of teams knew Edie Brickell and the New Bohemians with their song What I Am. I have hated that song since I first saw them perform it on SNL. I would love to choke her in the shallow water and I don’t particularly care if it is before she gets too deep.

Round 3 was It’s the Least Wonderful Time of the Year and teams had to list eight of the 10 movies to have made 50 million or more in 2015. This round did not go so well for anybody as the highest score was three across the board. There were some zeroes in here as well. There were some weird answers in here with more than a few teams offering up movies that came out several years ago. Titanic and Avatar did not make any amount of money in the theater in 2015. Just sayin’

Round 4 was I Have a Bachelor’s Degree-In Hip Hop in which all the questions were about fake doctors. Answers were pretty much middle of the road here. The Doctor Who question threw a lot of teams who though that Peter Capaldi was the 9th doctor. Can’t imagine that Christopher Eccleston would like that much…if he gave even half a shit about Doctor Who at this point.

The visual round was When a Maine Loves a Wyoming and most teams did really well here naming the states that are next to the states pictured. There isn’t much to say about this round.

Round 6 was Two Broke Girls Gone Wild and it was a Before & After round in which teams had to string two hints together, one describing a sitcom and the other describing some other thing that shares a syllable linking them. This was another split round with half the teams nailing and the other teams not so much. I am impressed when anyone gets any of these things as I am really terrible at them. Murphy Brown Note was my favorite.

Round 7 was the second audio round in which we honored Jeff Daniels for his birthday with a bunch of clips and then I asked questions about the clips. This was kind of a rough round for teams. Most teams knew the Newsroom and Arachnophobia as well as the last four words of Harry’s sentence to Lloyd in Dumb and Dumber. When it came to Good Night, and Good Luck, the iPhone, and the Purple Rose of Cairo, however, teams were in the dark.

Round 8 was Random Knowledge as always and scores were kind of middling here but there were some teams that rode the jester train to win town here. Toll Roads threw a lot of teams and the Oscar Nominated films of Meryl Streep for the past six years were another stumbling block.

When the smoke cleared, Chekhov’s Gun and We’ll Miss You Sam were tied for first with 74 points each so we went to the sudden death round which again came up tied. A tiebreaker question had to decide and Chekhov’s Gun emerged victorious. For those of you keeping score at home, that is two weeks in a row with ties for the top spot. I am holding out hope that maybe next week we will have a clear victor without having to go to the sudden death round. A boy can dream. Jason snagged a Geeks Who Drink Pint glass for the email bonus question which is pretty sweet.

Thanks again to everyone for coming out tonight and I hope to see you all next week!

Ah Valentine’s day is here again and as a single guy on it I am hard pressed to write anything but how much of a sham it is and how annoying it can be for the single. It isn’t really a case of sour grapes so much as I think that people should appreciate their partners every day all year round instead of on a corporately manufactured holiday to sell greeting cards. Now, I don’t begrudge couples from celebrating their love on this day but if that is the one time a year they do romantic things or pay attention to their partner then it is a huge cop out and nothing more than the neglect of the selfish who can’t be bothered any other time of year. All that being said I am probably one of the least romantic guys you are likely to meet which never helps with the ladies I can tell you. If you are in a relationship and are celebrating Valentine’s Day then more power to you but please keep in mind that loving someone isn’t a once a year deal.

Here’s the recap:

Round 1 was Recently in Stuff and obviously it was about current goings on in the news. Teams spanked this round like it had been very, very bad or very, very good as only three teams got less than a perfect score  and even then they managed six points each. Cholesterol and Congress were the two most missed. Teams were pretty well checked out on everything else.  Way to pay attention to current events!

The audio round was Magazine Rock and all the song titles were the names of magazines. Things went a bit downhill as most teams had a rough time here. Style by Taylor Swift, Slam by Onyx , and Time by Hootie and the Blowfish were probably the most missed but teams had a rough time here.

Round 3 was Fucked Up Fairy Tales asked for teams to tell me if the listed event happened in Norse or Greek Mythology. This was another rough round with a lot of confusion here. A good hint for the future though is any time you have questionable sexual stories you are probably dealing with Greek mythology. Any time you have a god doing something really stupid (I am looking at you, Thor) it is probably Norse. Sure this is a huge generalization but it would have been a good metric for this round.

Round 4 was Better Living Through Chemistry and it was all about legal drugs. This was another super strong round for teams so clearly you cats know about some drugs. I am not going to get into what this means but teams were pretty checked out on most of these. Jose Canseco threw some teams for a loop but other than that there weren’t any real stand outs as to problem areas.

The Visual Round was People Rebus-Sports Edition in which teams had to answer puzzles representing major league sports franchises. There were lots of strong scores here which is impressive to me as I couldn’t pan out more than half of them on my own. Good on you guys.

Round 6 was Beethoven and Friends and it was a round about various and sundry Ludwigs. This was a pretty rough round as most scores were really low. Super Mario Bros 3 was a really rough one that threw a bunch of teams. Some went with just Super Mario Bros and others went with Super Mario World but Super Mario Bros 3 was the one that came out in 1990. The Grand Budapest Hotel threw a lot of teams who for some reason thought it was Birdman.

Round 7 was 8-Bit Toons and it was maybe my favorite Round 7 ever with chiptune versions of cartoon theme songs. Scores here were split down the middle but all I can really say is that it was very difficult not to sing along with Ducktales. WhooHoo!

Round 8 was random knowledge as usual and it was a harsh mistress. The question about 18 and below female Grammy winners claimed most teams with no one getting all of them right and several teams getting none of them. The Village Voice threw teams and when it comes to fictional nations I was horrified see how many teams only knew the nation from My Little Pony.

The quiz was up and down the entire time with scores and when the smoke cleared we all saw there was a ton more smoke as we had a three way tie for first. Sadly it was not a three-way. After the sudden death tie breaker, 50 Sharts of Greg took the top spot while Chekhov’s Gun snagged second. Maddy took home a sweet Geeks Who Drink jump drive for the email bonus question.  It was a fun night tonight and I hope to see you all again next week!
