If Denver ever had a City-Wide Hangover Day, I think it would follow Opening Day for the Colorado Rockies.  So thank god it was beautiful out Tuesday for Geeks Who Drink, because if the groans I received after asking “How was everyone’s Monday?” were any indication, we needed something to something to lift everybody’s spirits after the Rockies’ blowout.  It’ll be okay guys, it’s not like they lost an important game.   We can go back to not caring about them until August rolls around.

While the Rockies may have been the royal losers of the week (seriously, did you see the Mets play? And they actually scored!), the teams made sure they were winners by choosing some of my favorite names I’ve had since I started this whole crazy quiz gig.  Not only did we have Santorum Pulls Out and Bossage Like Sausage, but Grapthar’s Hammer finally gives me a reason to play Alan Rickman and scream “By Grapthar’s Hammer!  You are in second place!”  I can’t believe my girlfriend hates Galaxy Quest; it’s such a classic, and probably the best movie Tim Allen has ever made.

As always, my thanks go out to Something Obscure and Jolly Rancher Shiv, who made their appreciated requisite appearances.  Jolly Rancher Shiv also gets extra special brownie points for asking to be left out of the running from the top prizes as they had a group of 7 people playing along this time around.  We all appreciate a gracious team, especially in such a non-competitive environment, so my hats off to you guys for this night (did I mention I wore a hat tonight?).

Another fun night at the Mellow Mushroom may have come and gone, but I can always look forward to doing it all again next week.  See you all then!

Everybody knows that when I show up at the Mellow Mushroom it’s a special occasion, but tonight’s quiz came with an even more extra special occasion in the form of a birthday!  Congratulations to Danielle of the team A Full Set of Magnetic Silverware for staying alive another year, and for putting up with me while I led the crowd in singing “Happy Birthday” while she was in the bathroom.  And an extra special thanks for sharing a piece of your cake with your humble quizmaster and the girlfriend he dragged along tonight.  You kept me out of the doghouse, Danielle, and I won’t forget it.

We celebrated not only a young lady's birthday and Baylor taking the whole NCAA Women’s basketball enchilada, but we also had a few rounds that celebrated the ladies in general, like Round 2: Ladies Night and the first round on boobs (you’re welcome, families who brought their kids!).  We also took a chance to recognize the greatest band of all time.  That’s right, you guessed it, the Monkees!  I hope to one day figure out who these Beatles were that were also in Round 3: Hey Hey, We're the Copies.  Must be some lame Monkees rip-off.

Jolly Rancher Shiv were back in force today, and with a judicial use of their Joker in Round 2, they held a steady lead until the final round when our email question winners Didn’t Ask for a Dime snuck in with their Joker-doubled final round to take lead with one solitary point.  It was a rollercoaster game where teams like McWehner’s, My Couch Might Pull Out But I Won’t, and A Full Set of Magnetic Silverware bounced around the top 5 slots until a particularly tricky round on rage (Round 6: Get Off My Lawn!).  It was loaded up with a few video game questions that seemed to throw some of the older, more socially healthy members of the crowd for a loop, whereas sad loners like me remember dropping tons of quarters into the Primal Rage machine back when arcades were still a thing.

A buzzing crowd that never lost its energy is what we come to expect at Geeks Who Drink, and tonight was no different.  Even the teams Bridget & Co. and The Painters who showed up for the last two rounds were excited to play, leveraging them above other teams the started out strong but had to take off, because hey, it’s cold outside.  I’ll be looking forward to keeping the energy going next week, guys.  See you there!

A lone wolf, loose cannon cop on the edge who plays by his own set of rules.

This week at the Mellow Mushroom, not only were we able to able to start at the right time (7:30!), but we had a good assortment of teams.  Returning this week were Something Obscure and Jolly Rancher Shiv, each moving up a place from their standings last week.  This meant that not only did Something Obscure take home a third place gift card, but Jolly Rancher Shiv took home the 1st place prize after shooting up with a well-timed joker in the last round, earning them 24 points.  It probably didn’t hurt that half the teams that started the game took off before the last few rounds, too.

Even with random teams coming in and out of the fold throughout the night, I think it was safe to say that we all had a blast this quiz.  Old hats like Something Obscure, Jolly Rancher Shiv, and What the F--- is at the Bottom of My Beer? are always up for hot quiz action, and some newbies to the Geeks Who Drink experience still got excited to get their chance to earn a free drink with our bonus questions.  In fact, whenever I announced a bonus question, the crowd appeared around me almost out of nowhere.  I’m not generally claustrophobic, but being surrounded by a crowd anxious for free drinks reminds me just a little bit too much of family reunions. 

If you do plan on playing consistently, remember to sign up for the email newsletter on the front page.  There you will get updates on the day’s quiz rounds, as well as a chance to answer a special bonus question for an actual, physical prize!  This quiz we only had one person enter, so our winner Brian Kief was guaranteed his prize of a tiny coffee cup for squirrels.  How could you possibly let that chance pass you by?

New player or old team, I hope to see you all next week at the Mellow Mushroom in Centennial!  It’ll be fun times.
Chris
