A Bonanza of Tuesday Trivia!

With the start of spring quickly approaching, Tuesday’s game welcomed 123 teams across 20 venues:


Monday’s game kicked off with a Three Clues question regarding this mythological beast:

After a discussion of the Blarney Stone and the TV sitcom”30 Rock”, the first round yielded ten perfect scores.


The film work of Matthew McConaughey was the focus of Tuesday’s audio question, as our teams were asked to identify clips from “A Time to Kill”, “The Wedding Planner”, and “Dallas Buyers Club”.  We continued with questions concerning the Leonard Cohen song “Hallelujah”, the Harlem Globetrotters, and this charitable organization:

Seven teams ran the table with a perfect second round score.


Tuesday’s halftime page looked at film remakes and world capitals.  The overall average reached 15.9 points, as eight teams earned a perfect score of 20 points.  Here is Tuesday’s halftime leaderboard:


Tuesday’s second half began with a three-part question about words which include the letters “DIO”.  We also discussed the term “designated survivor”, the colors of the U.N. peacekeeping forces, and this Broadway musical:

After a trio of difficult bonus questions, Gouda ‘Nuff For Me (Cheesetique) posted the only perfect score of the third round.


We traveled back to ancient Greece to begin Tuesday’s final round, before moving on to topics such as the recent film “Alita: Battle Angel”, the ten gallon hat, and these two tennis champions:

Four teams earned 36 points in the final round: Crusty Broads (Cuginis), Happy Little Trees (Charlie’s), Three Fingers Worth (Shuckin’ Shack), and Gouda ‘Nuff For Me (Cheesetique), the latter of which posted its fourth perfect round of the night.  Here is your Tuesday leaderboard heading into the final question:

TUESDAY’S FINAL QUESTION (65.8% success rate):

–> The 1859 discovery of the Comstock Lode, the first major silver deposit discovery in the United States, took place in a Nevada city that shares its name with which U.S. state located more than 2,000 miles away?

Nearly two-thirds of our teams responded correctly by remembering that Virginia City is located just outside of Carson City, Nevada.  Though seven teams earned the Perfect 21 on Tuesday night by answering every wagering question correctly, a special congratulations goes out to Gouda ‘Nuff For Me (Cheesetique), who also answered all 12 bonus questions correctly en route to a perfect game!  This is the seventh perfect game in PHT history and the first of Season XIX.  Here is your final Tuesday leaderboard:
