Someone please explain beanplate to Hylaea, so he can feel up to date on inside MeFi jokes.

I mean it's like there isn't a wiki or anything.

Ah thanks for the wiki. I'm a bit behind on inside MeFi stuff, I'll do my best to catch up.

I've been enjoying these trivia games, trivia victories are a good way for me to increase my glory and honor.

How does it work if a random seattle mefite shows up but doesn't fit into the right number of people for a team? Can they just sit at the table and watch or make jokes between rounds?

If they show up and there are fewer than six people on a team, they can join the team. If the teams are full at six, they have to sit stoically at another table during the quizzing but can socialize with the rest of the clever and delightful Seattle MeFites in between rounds, after the quiz, etc.

Also, if said random mefite let people know they were coming before the event and we were over 6 people, we'd split into two teams. It worked out great last time!

Hylea and I are maybes this week.

Who was it who recommended The Wake to me in person? I bought a copy, I'm super excited for it.

To clarify what MoonOrb wrote above, if you RSVP that you're Attending (not Maybe) and a) show up by 7:55 or b) post here that you'll be there but are running late, whoever is there will make sure there are enough teams to accommodate everyone, be it one team of 6, 3 + 4, or whatever. You just need to affirm that you're coming.

Like, there are no set teams or whatever, but if we have six when it kicks off and no one knows you're coming, we can't divide into multiple teams after the fact. Any and all MeFites are welcome!

Are there any Mefites who aren't random?

I'm a definitely yes unless some terrible shit prevents me again. And goddamn it isthmus better be there.

Definitely not for me.

Good luck - you're gonna need it.

We are out this week, sorry.
posted by quaking fajita at 11:53 AM on March 28, 2016


Yeah, looking like I'm out too.
posted by Special Agent Dale Cooper at 7:19 PM on March 28, 2016


Oh man. I think I'll pass this one by too. I've got a 645am flight the next morning.
posted by MoonOrb at 7:22 PM on March 28, 2016


Yeah, I have a gigantic pile of work to finish tonight, so I'm out too. Alas!

Since I have never done trivia before and mostly everyone had abandoned ship, I think I will be too.

Slarty, we are all counting on you.
posted by MoonOrb at 6:27 PM on March 29, 2016


Oh. I was just realizing that I could come. Anyone else?

...excelsior!

I'm able to go. I'll see if I can round up anyone else.

I'm wearing a yellow T shirt under a brown flannel and jeans. Will be there in ten.
posted by Slarty Bartfast at 7:33 PM on March 29, 2016


Ok, got a couple of geniuses coming but they won't be there til 830. If anyone else can make it, we need you!
posted by Slarty Bartfast at 7:41 PM on March 29, 2016


Oh!oh! I'll come! Driving from Chill now.

Slarty and I are holding the redoubt lone, people. Midst snow and ice. Verloren hoopsters.

Well, as expected, it was respectable but still a loss. Although we did get an honorable mention for guessing that John Kasich's show on Fox News was called "Sex Talk."

Thanks to clew and my two subs, Camille and Tim. Hopefully see you next week.

Hey, is anyone planning on coming out this week? We don't seem to have a new event.
