Just Watch the Damn World Series

Unless you’ve been locked in your basement for the past month (and knowing this crowd, that’s probably a lot of you**), you know the Phillies are in the World Series. And they’re playing those games at prime quizzo time. So we’re taking the week off…We’ll see ya back at all of your favorite haunts next week. Go Phils!

The 19th Annual (Sort of) Spooktacular!

We’ve been doing the annual Spooktacular, full of ghosts, goblins and gremlins, for quite a few years now. This week, with the Phillies going to the World Series, we’ll mix it up a bit, with a part horror/part World Series theme (but very few baseball questions). Make sense? No? That’s fine. It’ll be fun. Here’s the lineup.

Virtual Quizzo is Back!

Yes, it’s been great getting back into the bars. But the virtual quizzes have continued to be a lot of fun, especially for teams that are in different cities, in the burbs, or have kids and can’t get out all that easily anymore. And for the teams who love Carl (pretty much all of them.)

The Fall season starts next Tuesday. 8 games (final will be on Sunday 11/20), 4 rounds each, played in 60-75 minute breakout room sessions. Carl will be your host for all sessions, which will be held Tuesday & Wednesday evenings except for the final. You can register here and sign up for your team’s weekly sessions here. These quizzes will be separate than the regular quiz, so you’re welcome to play the virtual league AND the weekly bar quiz if you want. Gonna be a great league, we’re hoping to land 4 more teams by the time the league starts on Tuesday. Sign up today!

The Special Masters Win Their First Ever Quizzo Bowl!

On an electric Saturday night at the World Cafe Live, the Special Masters stunned the quizzo establishment with a 155-151 victory over the defending champs, Boyz II Menehune. Sofa Principality finished 3rd.

Our “Back to School” themed night began with JGT and lil’ Goodtimes performing the dance routine from Napoleon Dynamite. We then went into Round 1, “Are You Smarter than a Canadian 5th Grader?” (I’ll post some of the questions later). Round two was a definite highlight, as Doogie Horner introduced an art round in which he had drawn famous artists…as if they were kids. So a very fun round you can watch here.

Round Three was a “School Cafeteria Before and After round, followed by the music round, hosted by JGT and Reef the Lost Cauze, rapping rock songs about school. After four rounds, we had a tie between the Special Masters, 3-time champion Lambda, and 2-time champion the Zodiac Killers. Chip hosted a History video round, then we moved to the Impossible Round. And that’s where the Masters broke away from the pack, missing only one part of the Weekly double, but otherwise running the round.

The between-round performances by Friends of the Family were SPECTACULAR, we were able to get a lot of school supplies for our friends at the Poor People’s Army, and we’ll have lots of great photos posted for ya soon. Here were our final scores.

  1. Special Masters 155
  2. Boyz II Menehune 151
  3. Sofa Principality 149
  4. Midvale School for the Gifted 145

So You’re Playing Quizzo Bowl?

So you’re playing Quizzo Bowl? Whether this is your first or 17th, we’re really excited to have you on board. This is gonna be a blast! Here’s what you need to know:

The event is at the World Cafe Live, 30th and Walnut. You’ll enter on Walnut. The doors are at 7, show is at 8. Know the purchaser of your tickets! That will get you in the venue without needing to wait for everybody to arrive. It’s all general seating, so first come first serve on that.

If you’d like to play and have not already bought tickets…no problem! We’ve definitely got a few tables left. Your guaranteed bet is to buy them online, but at last count you should be OK getting them at the box office. 

The show will start at 8 PM. We’ve got a new star to help open this year’s show.

It will be a 6-round, 48 question quiz. It will not move as fast as a typical quiz, so kick back and relax. We’ll have live music, games and nonsense to enjoy. This ain’t as Tuesday, let’s hang out, party a little, and luxuriate in all of this bonus trivia. I’ll post the run of show below, so you know what to expect.

Needless to say, there are no phones allowed during gameplay BUT you are welcome to use them during the rest of the show. So please take photos of your team, of you and Fastball Bob, of you and the trophy, whatever, and be sure to tag @jgtquizzo on instagram and use the hashtag #QBXVII. And yes, we will have a pro photog there as well, so be sure to get a team pic! 

I am asking everyone who attends to bring a school supply! We will then give them all to our friends at the Poor People’s Army to hand out to Philly schoolchildren who need them. Pens, pencils, bookbags, markers, it really can be anything, and most places are doing big sales on them now since school already started.

If you have a small group and want to play, that’s no problem at all! But I will probably team you up with another small group to make a team. It helps build our little community, and it makes things easier for Chip and I to grade! 

There will be an afterparty! We’ll be headed right down the street to one of the great dive bars in the city, Bonner’s, to wind down and to raise a glass to the champions.

Can’t wait to see everyone tomorrow night. Gonna be a fun show!
