Got the Munchies for Tuesday Trivia?

Tuesday’s game of Pour House Trivia welcomed 107 teams across 13 venues:

FIRST ROUND:

Tuesday’s first round discussed topics such as the musical “Grease”, U.S. Presidents, and the unrequited love of this comic strip character:

Charlie Brown

Twelve teams began their night with a perfect first round score.

SECOND ROUND:

In the second round, we played three songs about blame: “Blame It On the Rain” by Milli Vanilli, “Bang and Blame” by R.E.M., and “Sorry, Blame It On Me” by Akon.  We also discussed the most recent Wimbledon champions and this former HBO comedy:

Girls

Three teams ran the table in the second round: How Did I Get Here? (Greene Growlers), Wolfpack (Quincy’s South), and Balls Out (Quincy’s South).

HALFTIME:

Tuesday’s halftime page featured brand logos and TV cops.  We saw 13 teams record perfect scores with an overall average of 16.9 points.  Here is your halftime leaderboard from Tuesday:

THIRD ROUND:

As usual, the third round included the most difficult wagering question of the night:

–> In addition to being made of carbon, blue diamonds derive their color from trace amounts of this chemical element which contaminates the crystalline lattice structure.  Name this element which is numerically adjacent to carbon on the periodic table.

Only 21% of our teams earned points with the correct response of Boron.  Later, we looked at how the Madden curse affected this former NFL quarterback:

Daunte Culpepper

The third round yielded just one perfect score: How Did I Get Here? (Greene Growlers).

FOURTH ROUND:

Tuesday’s final round included a nostalgic look at this music video:

Springsteen

We followed with the most difficult bonus question of the night, which came in the form of a Three Clues question:

CLUE 1: The surname of the only American woman to serve on the Mir space station.

CLUE 2: The first word in the title of a current hit song by Juice WRLD.

Only a handful of teams ventured a guess at this point, with most of the field waiting until this third clue:

CLUE 3: Derived From the Latin word meaning ‘clear’, this term describes a dream in which the dreamers are aware that they are dreaming.

Six teams earned bonus points with the correct answer of lucid.  As a result, the final round did not yield any perfect scores.  Here are your top Tuesday scores after four rounds of play:

TUESDAY’S FINAL QUESTION (39.4% success rate):

–> In 2004, what fast food chain became the first restaurant in history to advertise an R-rated film on its containers?

About two-fifths of our teams responded correctly with White Castle.  Congratulations to How Did I Get Here? (Greene Growlers) and Fuller McShite (Cugini’s), who each recorded the Perfect 21 tonight with correct answers on all wagering questions.  Here is your final Tuesday leaderboard:
