God of War? How about the God of Trivia? Thursday’s Pour House Trivia Roundup!

Pour House pub quiz hit you with a wallop of information on this rainy and slightly chilly Thursday evening!

Let’s do some TOTALLY NOT TRUE FACTS of the night!

  • The original draft of Moby Dick had Ahab’s leg made from a VERY DIFFERENT part of whale anatomy!
  • RIAA has a secret 10,000,000 sales award: The Moon Rock!
  • James Madison, being height concious, wore special shoes that made him able to dunk a basketball!

Let’s see the games


Bunkers – Leesburg, Virginia

Wild back and forth game tonight, with teams swapping first, second and third with furious abandon! After it all shook out, it looked like this:

In third tonight was Team Spam!

In second, the Indians!

And your winners, The Washington Foreskins!

We had a handful of excellent incorrect answers tonight. Here’s my favorites:

Bring Home the Bacon and Let’s Make a Squeal as our porcine related game shows frome European Vacation!

The protagonist of God of War is not Guy With Whip or “The Good Guy From Predator!”

Next week we’ll start it off with Simpson’s Season 5!

Champion Billiards – Frederick, MD

One of the fun things about live trivia is that if you don’t know the answer you can always go for the joke! The “your mom” ones are certainly a staple. Some even have gotten into extended family and the occasional picture/comic strip. Tonight I’d like commend Team One Night Stand for their crafty use of real estate on a tough puzzle page! It did in fact ask for “body parts” so I think we opened ourselves for some stuff 🙂

After a fun little Sex and the City blunder, we had ourselves a jam up game of some bar trivia tonight!
Props to FnQ who came out firing tonight and held the lead on into the final round but slipped on Canada and made a hole for Vitrifiers to sneak into! Which they did handily and snatched up the top prize for their work! GG Vitrifiers.

FnQ did nail the Zippo year tie breaker EXACTLY and slid on into 2nd Place, inching out our Season 9 House Champions, “Horseshoes and Hand Grenades,” who took 3rd.

Fish Market – Alexandria, Virginia

Tonight’s game was a crucial round of live trivia!
Oscar Meyer pulled the lead after the 3rd round by sniping a couple of two point bonuses and held on until the final question of the game.
After a brutal final, with no correct answers, the teams that went defense were able to pull ahead.
Oscar Meyer dropped a bit, finishing in 3rd place, Dogs and Cats Sleeping Together pulled 2nd place and the winners tonight were Humantaray!
Great game. I’ll see ya all next week!
1st Place: Humantaray
2nd Place:Dogs + Cats Sleeping Together
3rd Place:Oscar Meyer
Next week’s category: Pokemon!

Guido’s – Frederick, MD

We had what I’d like to call an “intimate” game of trivia last night at Guido’s Speakeasy. Only my core regulars showed up for a showdown of who’s the best, and the scores were TIGHT throughout the ENTIRE game! Surprisingly, I didn’t have any ties at the end of the game and this is how it broke down… in 3rd place(“they call me, Mr. Tubbs”… sorry, inside joke.)… T.N.C.! In 2nd place was None Pizza with Left Beef! And your winner(who also just happens to be the House Champion), Stink Floyd!! They chose “Naomi Watts Films” for next weeks winners choice category, and I’ll hope to see a few more teams next Thursday night for trivia!! ~ Jon J

Lake Linganore Association, New Market, MD

If we’ve learned anything over these last few weeks, it’s that a little rain can’t stop the fun and bar trivia at Lake Linganore!
A close game down to the end, but Faking Bad once again couldn’t be caught on their way to the top!
Snake Linganore proved an imposing force with an impressive second place score with Mad Beavers rounding out third.
Don’t mothball last week’s math books just yet – Faking Bad has once again chosen Mathematics as their winners’ choice category! So why don’t you come meet me under the tent and we’ll do some long division? 😉

Main Street Oyster House -Bel Air, MD

Packed house tonight at Main Street, seems like the word is out that live trivia is the thing to do on Thursday night in Bel Air!
Clever team name was back on top tonight in first place with 162, right behind them was We are mistaken at 139, and new comers Chatty Cathy’s took a chance on trivia and made it into the top three with 133.
Next week you better have your game faces on, cause we start off with a question about poker!

Quincy’s – Gaithersburg, Maryland

All of our regulars are gearing up for Playoff Saturday, as 13 teams rolled into Quincy’s for a great game that was hotly-contested from start to finish.  Just a few points separated our top five teams, but Uncle Jack managed to cling to a three-point lead and were able to say “Show Me the Money” for another victory.  They will be a force to be reckoned with on June 8th.  Also Known As took second, with Blue collar landing on the winner’s podium for the fourth week in a row.  Next week begins with a question on “The West Wing”.  See you then!  ~ Matt
