Thanks to all those who came out to play this week. The rest of you were missed. Don’t stay away too long, okay? I love all my Quizlings but I think I love the regulars a little bit more.

We sprung forward, made cereal talk and translated French fairy tales. Oh and there was a bloke that broke the plaster ceiling at American Girl…

February 8 Trivia Rankings

February 9, 2017

What a lovely night for trivia, Quizlings. Feels like spring is here and we’ll be sitting outside before we know it – of course, as long as the weather cooperates [Sparky sticks another pin in his Greg Fishel voodoo doll].

What did we learn this week? Scott Bakula did not star in a plural TV show, Sudoku math is not that hard and Milo Ventimiglia is hot (although we may already have known that last one). Plus there was this morsel of tastiness…

January 5, 2017

Happy New year, my Quizlings! Thanks to all who came out to play in the first game of 2017. We said goodbye to some familiar faces, found out why it’s not easy being green (although apparently it’s easier for some teams than others) and, hey, it’s a little early for 4/20 but California runs at a different pace, I guess.

December 21, 2016

Happy holidays, Quizlings! And many thanks to those who came out to share a pre-Yule triviaganza with us.
