Call Your Friends Kevin, Stuart, and Bob for Tuesday Trivia!

The first Tuesday night of Season XIX welcomed 131 teams across 20 venues:


Opening round topics from Tuesday’s game included The Masters golf tournament, events from the year 1990, and this boy band:

New Kids on the Block

Three teams began their night with a perfect first round score: Dr. Leo Marvin and Associates (Cheesetique), Balls Out (Quincy’s South), and Princess Wonderful (Brass Tap).


Tuesday’s audio question included clips from three films featuring Antonio Banderas: “Spy Kids”, “Evita”, and “Philadelphia”.  Though less than one-quarter of the field earned bonus points with all three correct answers, this was by far the easiest bonus question of the round.  After a quick snack on Oreo cookies, we discussed American governors.  While virtually every team knew that Bill Clinton had once served as Governor of Arkansas, only THREE teams tacked on two bonus points by also knowing that he was succeeded in that role by Jim Guy Tucker.  We closed the first half an equally difficult bonus question, as we looked at the TV sitcom “Two Guys, A Girl, and A Pizza Place”:

Two Guys and a Girl Ryan Reynolds

While most teams knew that this sitcom provided an early screen role for Ryan Reynolds, only five teams earned the final bonus points of the first half by naming either one of the other two people in this photo: Traylor Howard or Richard Ruccolo.  Needless to say, the second round did not yield any perfect scores.


Tuesday’s halftime page featured celebrities in beer commercials and notable moments from NFL history.  The overall average score reached 16.7 points, as eleven teams notched a perfect score of 20 points.  Here are your highest scoring Tuesday teams at the halftime break:


Tuesday’s second half began with a Three Clues question concerning the state of Colorado.  We continued with a look at the novel “Anna Karenina” and the derivation of this term:


A bonus question in the subject of Norse mythology kept virtually all of the perfect scores off the board, as only eight teams identified Midgard as the name of world inhabited by humans.  The only perfect scores of the third round was turned in by Five Dollar Vasectomy (The Block) and Prestige Worldwide (Quincy’s South).


We began the final round with a look at the film character that has been portrayed by these two strongmen:


Only 11% of the field snagged the first bonus points of the round by knowing that Conan the Barbarian was also portrayed by Jason Momoa.  Later, we looked at Ariana Grande, Abraham Lincoln, and Clayton Kershaw.  None of our teams recorded a perfect final round score.  These were your highest scoring teams heading into Tuesday’s final question:

TUESDAY’S FINAL QUESTION (81.2% success rate):

–> “They have no discernible noses but seem capable of smelling, as they are shown smelling fruit and are affected by the Fart Gun.” This bizarre sentence is a quote from the Wikipedia article describing what group of characters?

Just over four-fifths of the field earned points on this final question with the correct response of Minions. With tonight’s final question falling on the easier side, we saw seven teams earn the Perfect 21 by correctly answering all 21 wagering questions. Here is Tuesday’s final overall leaderboard:
