All That Jazz at Saturday Trivia!

Our Friday venues took the night off during this holiday weekend, which meant that 18 teams took in a game at one of our two Saturday venues:


After breezing through questions about foreign currency and the composition of a standard orchestra, our Saturday teams encountered the two most difficult bonus questions of the night:

–> Under the current format, what is the maximum prize that a contestant can earn during the Showcase Showdown on “The Price is Right”?

–> While playing for the Seattle Seahawks, who became the most recent linebacker to win the Super Bowl MVP?

In each case, only two teams earned bonus points with the respective correct answers of $26,000 and Malcolm Smith.  We listened to three-letter music groups in the audio question (Lit, Jet, Fun) before moving on to topics such as the Thirty Years’ War and these Oscar-winning films:

Casablanca BogartChicago

The only perfect score of the first half was recorded by J. T. Snow School of Babysitting (Belles’), who notched 36 points in the second round.


Thanksgiving films was the featured topic on Saturday’s halftime page, which yielded an average score of 15.4 points.  Three teams topped out at 19 points, but “Alice’s Restaurant” and “The Ice Storm” proved to be tough enough to keep the perfect scores off the board.  Here is your Saturday leaderboard at the halftime break:


The second half actually played slightly easier for our Saturday teams, as the field racked up bonus points on topics such as the “Rumble in the Jungle”, the work of Norwegian playwright Henrik Ibsen, Bratz dolls, and the former wives of Tom Cruise:

Holmes Kidman Rogers Cruise

While each of the final two rounds yielded four perfect scores, J. T. Snow School of Babysitting (Belles’) was the only team to achieve the feat in both the third and fourth round.  These were your highest scoring Saturday teams heading into the final question:

SATURDAY’S FINAL QUESTION (66.7% success rate):

–> Which common object is the focus of the 21st century term nomophobia?

Shortly after the turn of the century, British scientists coined and defined the term nomophobia as “the fear of not having constant access to one’s cell phone”.  After another stellar performance, J. T. Snow School of Babysitting (Belles’) notched the only Perfect 21 of the weekend with correct answers on all wagering questions.  Here is your final Saturday night leaderboard:
