Into the Cabinet for Tuesday Trivia!

alt text

There were 21 locations open for Pour House Trivia on Tuesday, hosting a total of 192 teams. We also welcomed Rockville’s Creek Lodge Bar & Grill to the PHT family and had our first week of Idiom Brewing on its new night!

FIRST ROUND:

The game started with topics such as the debut of The Brady Bunch, the hot toddy cocktail, and a rhyming three-parter. At the end of the round, we had this NFL question:

  • Leading the league in points after week three in the current NFL season, who is the only undefeated team left in the AFC?
  • 2-POINT BONUS: What is the name of their stadium?

Thanks to this past Sunday’s 70-point outburst, the Miami Dolphins are 3-0. However, 34% added points for knowing the Dolphins play home games at Hard Rock Stadium. A game-high 31 perfect scores were recorded in this round.

SECOND ROUND:

Tuesday’s audio question played a trio of songs with edible titles. The midpoint of this round featured the night’s toughest wagering chance:

  • An upcoming film subtitled Dawn of the Nugget serves as the sequel to which 2000 animated film?
  • Bonus: Who will voice the role of Rocky in this upcoming sequel film?

This was the least successful wagering question of our four rounds, as 35% of our teams named Chicken Run. Unfortunately, nobody knew Zachary Levi will be voicing Rocky for bonus points. The very next question was almost as tough:

  • Located a stone’s throw from Stonehenge, what English town shares its name with a city in eastern Maryland?

Since Cambridge is hours from Stonehenge, Salisbury was the correct answer, named by 36% of the field. This was the only round in which no team was perfect.

HALFTIME:

At halftime, teams had to name movies from their logos, then match Broadway songs to their respective musicals. The average score was 16.2 points, but 32 teams earned all 20 points! At the halftime break, these were the top five teams:

THIRD ROUND:

A three-parter about people with BG initials saw 20% of our teams name all three: ZZ Top vocalist Billy Gibbons, Presidential hopeful Barry Goldwater, and WNBA player Brittney Griner. A retro TV question showed up later:

  • Which U.S. television network was the top-rated network for 21 consecutive years, from 1956 through 1976?

About 43% of teams named CBS, which was led by Gunsmoke for four of those seasons. This round had 11 perfect teams.

FOURTH ROUND:

Tuesday’s 6-4-2 about Quebec had 16 six-point answers and 53% of teams earn a zero on their guess. The last round of the evening started with topics such as the USS Maine, actor Vin Diesel, and Three Clues about the number 13. The round’s final question went back to the 2000s music scene:

  • Sampling off of two hit songs of the 1970s, which singer reminisced about his days growing up in Michigan in the 2008 hit All Summer Long?
  • Bonus: Name both of the 1970s songs that were sampled on this track.

That Kid Rock song brought a bonus rate of 23%, for teams able to identify both Sweet Home Alabama and Werewolves of London. Six teams recorded a perfect fourth-round score. After four rounds, these teams were out in front:

FINAL QUESTION (22.4% success rate):

  • Moments after being nominated by George Washington, who did Congress unanimously approve to become the first member of the Presidential cabinet?

Tuesday’s final question was all about Alexander Hamilton. The night’s only Perfect 21 team was Killer Snails (Olney). Final overall standings were led by a three-way tie:
