Last Thursday’s snow day was made up in force tonight. 18 teams showed up to contest the top prize in Thursday’s installment of Pour House Trivia at Champion Billiards. And minus that poltergeist in my sound system early on, the game was pretty dag on awesome!
Many early bonus chips were whiffed early on, on questions like Rob Roy and “Let-Len.” But seriously, Champions teams can grind baby! They got down to it in the second half and we had ourselves a straight up race to the finish after our “taxi driver” 6-4-2. The thing is..as we know…you don’t have to be leading the race heading out of Round 4, you just gotta be in sniping distance! And the lovely trio of ladies over at Vitrifiers are no strangers to a final question steal! BOOM! Congrats on that WIN Vitrifiers; a tough one, and well deserved! Well played…
2nd Place was Horseshoes and Hand Greanades who were playing a little shy of a full team but still managed to take the number two spot against a tough field of trivia teams! Good stuff yall
Just Good Enough led much of the game tonight but after a tough final they had to take the number thre spot. 4th and 5th Place shouts to Laqueefa (nice come back!!!) and Brain Freeze, respectively!
Top 3 Things I can Take Away from Tonight
1. I NEVER EVER will care to drink a Rob Roy (Scotch and Vermouth? really?)
2. Our “Want Ads” have come a looongggg way since 1860!
3. Okay…Im curious now…I want to try a Rob Roy! doh! (Im so fickle)
We had a very successful 2nd night of PHT at Dan’s Restaurant and Taphouse in Boonsboro, thank you all so much for coming out!
Town Drunks arrived in force, and played a stellar game of trivia tonight for the win. SFW brought in some back-up as well and held on strong for 2nd, while a new team, Terrapins Station, pulled it out of the fire for 3rd.
Join me next week, where our first category will be human anatomy.
We welcomed a few new faces to Quincy’s on Thursday night, and some of those folks made quite an impression on the standings. Team Depends played a near-flawless game, but still could not shake Uncle Jack and Blue Collar, who were both within striking distance on the final question. After a few minutes of deliberation, Depends snagged the final answer and hung on for the win. Uncle Jack got the final as well and took home second, with one of our new teams, the Kibbutzers, sneaking up the standings and taking third. Great debut performance! We’ll start next week with a question on The Simpsons! ~ Matt
