Opening round topics from Tuesday night began with a three-part question on dog breeds where are teams were given a hybrid dog breed and they had to name the two breeds they were a cross between, the dogs in question were a Pomsky, Chug, and Peek-a-Poo. The respective answers were Pomeranian and Husky, Chihuahua and Pug, and Pekingese and Poodle.

Six teams posted a perfect first round score on Tuesday night.
In Tuesday’s audio question, the field dealt with songs whose titles began and ended with the same letter, those answers were “America,” “Pop” and “Roar.” Subsequent topics included the Boston Bruins, the Van Pelt children from Peanuts, Linus, Lucy, and Rerun Endeavour, and we changed a letter to make the answers to circus and cirrus.

Round Three also included the most difficult question of the night on the topic of medical maladies.
