Did Your Team Skor Points at Tuesday Trivia?

Tuesday’s game of Pour House Trivia welcomed 107 teams across 14 venues:


Tuesday’s game began with a look at this former tennis star known for his fiery on-court persona:

McEnroe Tennis

We continued with a question regarding the film “Top Gun” and its upcoming sequel, but only nine teams earned bonus points by knowing that the original film was directed by the late Tony Scott (brother of Ridley Scott).  After concluding with a Three Clues question about the name Gabriel (musician Peter Gabriel, author Gabriel Garcia Marquez, and the archangel Gabriel), only three teams ran the table during the first round: Who’s Your Pater Familias? (White Horse Tavern), Dave Martinez School of Management (Outta the Way Cafe), and State Senator McCheese (Monkey La La).


We shuffled through the audio question by identifying the songs “Cupid Shuffle” by Cupid, “Harlem Shuffle” by The Rolling Stones, and “Lido Shuffle” by Boz Scaggs.  Later, we snacked on some risotto, discussed the TV work of Melissa McCarthy, and sailed through the Luzon Strait:

Once again, three teams earned perfect second round scores: Who’s Your Pater Familias? (White Horse Tavern), Drink Apple Juice, The O.J. Will Kill You (Quincy’s South), and State Senator McCheese (Monkey La La).


Japanese loan words the focus of Tuesday’s halftime page, which featured an an overall average score of 17.2 points, with eight teams recording perfect scores.  Here are Tuesday’s top teams at the halftime break:


We began Tuesday’s second half with a three-part question regarding everyone’s favorite topic: African colonialism!  We also looked at The Pritzker Prize in Architecture before stumping many teams with this question:

–> A 17th century epic poem is the most notable work from which writer who once said: “To be blind is not miserable; not to be able to bear blindness, that is miserable”?

While Shakespeare penned dozens of poems in his lifetime, none of them qualified as an ‘epic poem’.  Instead, we were looking for author John Milton, who lost his eyesight in the later years of his life.  The final question of the third round asked our teams to name the most recent player to win consecutive NBA Finals MVP Awards.  About half of our teams correctly named Golden State Warriors star Kevin Durant as the correct answer, but only 11% of the field tacked on the final bonus points of the round by recalling this forgettable film title:

The only perfect score of Tuesday’s third round was turned in by How Did I Get Here? (Greene Growlers).


Tuesday’s final round began with a look at the odd similarities between these two Hershey bars:

Heath Skor

We continued with a three-part question regarding the Spice Girls before finishing with a discussion of the Mexican city Veracruz and this current TV series:

Mike Tyson

Five teams earned perfect scores in Tuesday final round.  Here is your overall leaderboard after four rounds of play:

TUESDAY’S FINAL QUESTION (58.3% success rate):

–> For your wager, what is the only sign on the Chinese Zodiac that can also refer to an animal found among the astrological signs of the Western Zodiac?

Because of the complexities of foreign translations, we did accept multiple correct answers, as the Chinese term “yáng” can translate into goat, ram, sheep, all of which can be found on the Western Zodiac.  Just over half of our teams responded correctly on Tuesday’s final question.  Congratulations to Dave Martinez School of Management (Outta the Way Cafe), who recorded the only Perfect 21 on Tuesday by not missing a single wagering question.  These were your highest-scoring Tuesday teams:
