Summer Slam

SUMMER SLAM 2020 ran from June, 2020 through mid-August with weekly quizzes, culminating into a SUMMER SLAM Finale that was won by Smells Like Quarantine Spirit.

The SUMMER SLAM Finale

  • Sunday, August 16
  • Full 5-round quizzo event
  • Smells Like Quarantine Spirit defeated Boyz II Menehune in overtime to win the first ever Cliver Cup.
  • The Cliver Cup is named after Andy of L Ron Hubbard’s Diabetics, who inspired this whole idea.

The Essentials

  • GAMES: 8-week regular season, starting the week of June 22nd. You can play every week, but only need to play 5 times to qualify for regular season prizes and/or the culminating event on Sunday, August 16th.
  • FORMAT: All regular season games will be in the single-team format- just you and your quiz master, at evening times of your choosing Monday through Friday. The August 16th SUMMER SLAM! event will be in the breakout-room format.

The Bells & Whistles

  • The average of your team’s top 5 scores will determine your regular-season ranking. 
  • After Week 7 of the regular season, the top 30 teams will earn a spot in SUMMER SLAM! on August 16th (see below). Week 8 will be a wild card week: the top 6 teams who haven’t earned an automatic bid will receive an at-large one.
  • Carl and I will host an occasional live show on Facebook on Sunday nights discussing our top teams and inviting some team members onto the show for interviews.
  • PRIZES will be given for various regular-season categories, including our top 4 regular season teams and some funky ones beyond just the top teams in the rankings.
  • Payment details:
    • If you play fewer than 7 times, we’ll send you back you back $35 per game fewer than 7. But you have to play 5 times to be eligible for the big event. 
    • There will be an extra buy-in to the ultimate SUMMER SLAM! event, hence the cash prizes.

And yes, all things SUMMER SLAM must be capitalized and said with enthusiasm. Otherwise, don’t say it at all. Hope to see you this summer!

  • Our Scores Headed Into Week 8

    Here they are folks. Best of luck this week, everybody! I’ll send an email on Wednesday with details about the Big Event.

  • 2nd Place Week

    This week, to wrap up the JGT SUMMER SLAM, we honor those who ALMOST made it to the top. We honor those who won the pennant, but lost the World Series. People who won their primary, but lost the general election. Couldn’t quite pull off the win in some crappy reality show? We’ll see ya on this week’s quiz! Should be a fun quiz.

    And then, on Sunday, we wrap it up with the SUMMER SLAM Main Event! We’ll have more details tomorrow.

  • Breakfast Week

    This week, we celebrate the first meal of the day at quizzo. If you’d like to play and aren’t a part of the SUMMER SLAM, you can sign up here. See ya this week!

    On Sunday night, Carl, J Michael, and JGT counted down our 51 teams until we got to #1. It was a fun discussion. We’ll do it again soon. If you don’t want to hear us talking quizzo minutiae you can see the standings right here. But who are you kidding, you want to hear us talking quizzo minutiae.
