Final playoff tuneup on Thursday with Pour House Pub Trivia!
Pour House pub trivia’s Thursday brought the final tuneup for the playoffs with six great games of live trivia!
This game went down to the wire, and EVERY team had a chance at top prize here at Bunker in Leesburg! For one team, a strategic zero wager certainly panned out for a prize. Here are the results of tonight’s game, and best of luck at the playoffs!
Dewey, Cheatum, and Howe in 1st
Cranius Maximus in 2nd
Thoroughly Screwed in 3rd
Our first category for next week is Simpson’s character Ralph Wiggum!
All week I’ve been watching very close games go down to decide House Champion! And tonight at Champions capped my week with another, down to the wire – and then some – evening of live trivia!
Going into tonight’s contest we had 3 teams with their eye on the possible House Champion title! And it came down to the last question to decide that. Master Debaters had to place ahead of Vitrifiers by two point levels! And props to MD for doing all they could do! They won tonight’s game! BUT the Vitrifiers had to take 3rd and they were not having that. Not tonight – not on their watch!
But jeez y’all – what a great season of some pub trivia we had Champion Billiards! Thanks for playing Season 11 with us; certainly hope you all had fun! Congrats to our Top 3 in tonight’s finale and much love and grats to Vitrifiers for earning the House Champion title for Season 11.
That was certainly a great game with some ups and downs and tricks and traps that changed the game flow more than once. So excititng!
Good luck to everyone in this weekend’s playoff and Pub Crawl events!
I will see you next Thursday night where we will have a Summer Fling warm-up game. And we kick that off with Nuclear Physics – ya know, some’n light to brush up on over the weekend! 🙂 Til then, be well and I will see you soon.
Well, the last night of Season 11 at Guido’s Speakeasy went off without a hitch and even had an exciting ending also! The House Champion and playoff teams were actually already sorted out after last Thursdays game, but a fight to the finish for the last win of the season was fun to watch.
Holding on to 3rd place from round 3 and thru the final was Friends Of Dick Johnson! Going into the final question, I had 2 teams tied for 1st place. Our House Champ, and another team that already has their World Series invite, PLUS has actually won the last 3 games in a row at Guido’s! Both teams went with different wagers so no tie-breaker question would be needed, and once the dust settled, here’s what went down.. Dropping back for 2nd place was Not Quite White, which means that for a fourth time in a row, Tuna Noodle Casserole took the top spot for 1st!! (they sure picked a great time to get hot with the P.H.W.S just around the corner!)
Next Thursday’s game will be a great warm-up to stay fresh for June 7th’s World Series! So when you come out, “Climax” is the chosen winners choice category. (Mmmee-Yowzers!) Good luck to everyone in the playoffs on Saturday and I’m rooting for all my regulars to finish with that golden pass for the money game! Hope you can tell me all about it next Thursday night at Guido’s!!!

Our third session of Pour House Trivia at Lake Linganore ended spectacularly tonight! We had a blast discussing Obama’s dog-walking technique, Martha Stewart making someone her prison wife (or as she likes to call it, “severe companion”), and the fact that English stand-up comic Jimmy Carr is responsible for the best heckler comeback lines of all time 🙂
Faking Bad stole first place by one point, becoming our House Champs (Tent Champs?) and earning a by to World Series 11. Moose & Squirrel took second with Sloppy Seconds in third. Thanks so much for a great season, I’ll see you all again on September 3!

So I made the trek out to Main St tonight, and I was rather glad I did!
A wonderful venue with some fun people and great food! You had me aughing at your first answers- cannibals are funny 😉 Thanks for hanging out with me, lord knows I’ll be back soon but it will be Natalie who gets to take over as your regular host. She’s a lucky woman. She’s also lucky in the fact that next week our winners, Anal bum Covers, have chosen reality tv shows as the first category. The trashier the better! 2nd went to the Jaguars, was fun to watch them duking it out with Anal bum but finally had to settle for 2nd after a Disney snafu. 3rd went to What the Shuck, who took first in the favorite team name category 😉
Have a good week, and Natalie will see you soon!
It was a great finish to Season XI at Quincy’s in Gaithersburg, as we PACKED THE HOUSE with 18 teams! Of course, all of our top teams were there, including our house champions for the second season in a row: I Just Quizzed My Pants! They clinched the title with a win last week, but they were back to try to cap off the season with two in a row. The final was a tough one, and when only two teams came up with the correct response, it was Suck it Frosty with the win! Second place went to Smella Nella, with Lowered Expectations in third. We’ll be having trivia next week (NO WEEKS OFF!), so come on back for a game that begins with a question on the Vietnam War! ~ Matt
