Q&A Trivia Cast 107: American Crossword Puzzle Tournament

This week: we’re LIVE from the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament in Stamford, CT, with special guest Will Shortz!

 Live this week from the ACPT in Stamford, Connecticut, Quizzing North America & TriviaNYC present Q&A, a live podcast that takes you to a packed house of quizzers every Saturday night for 31 (well, this week it’s 20) questions of great trivia about stuff that matters, or doesn’t.

This week, competitive crossword newbie Tony Hightower (@chicobangs) and seasoned cruciverbalist John Chaneski (@chaneski) take you on a boozy ride through 20 questions about crosswords, things related to crosswords, and things that appear far more often than they should in crosswords. Will Shortz called it “Pub trivia without the pub,” but the bar was right across the hall, and we kept them busy deep into the night.

Although this week is an exception, we usually record this live, every Saturday, from One Star Bar in Chelsea. Come see us live to catch things that didn’t make the podcast, and perhaps win some prizes. Let us know how we can make this better!

Thanks for listening, and if you dug it, tell whoever you can, however you can. (If you don’t, tell us. We want to be your top live trivia entertainment value.)

Monday Trivia Preview: Is It Spring Yet?

It’s another manic Monday. But it doesn’t have to be.

You know who this guy is. Or do you? It could matter tonight.

You know who this guy is. Or do you? It could matter tonight.

You can have a little piece of paradise at Agozar tonight at 7pm?. We have a spot to test your knowledge. Your host Eric Austin brings the smiles and offers sweet prizes, including ComedySportz tickets. Enjoy drink specials all night too.

All weeks should begin with a cocktail, a quiz, and good times with a chance to win prizes. So make it a new after work tradition.

We’ll see you tonight, New York.

ACPT – Trivia Contest Final Scores

We have a lot (a lot) more to say about how great the American Crossword Puzzle Tournament was, including lots of pics and the questions we used, but that might need to be saved for the podcast. For now, though, here were the final scores & the teams that played.

A perfect score was 40 points, and the preponderance of “MI5” and related team names referred to a particularly contentious clue that had come up in on of the puzzles that day. (We checked each multiple team name against handwriting, so we’re sure of the scores being correct, but there’s no way to differentiate between teams, as there’s just so damned many of them and we couldn’t do a whole lot about that.)

And yeah, we had 72 teams, which was about double what we were expecting. We have some ideas about how to do this better next time. Thanks to everyone who played; we were a little overwhelmed with the reception we got from you guys.

John & I owe extra thanks to the doughty and fearless Stella Zawistowski, who aside from being our Head Question setter, also finished 9th overall out of 624 players, despite helping us mark answer sheets like a woman possessed on the Saturday night.

Congratulations to everyone. We had a ton of fun.
