Keep My Glass Full For Tuesday Trivia!

Tuesday’s game of Pour House Trivia welcomed 122 teams across 18 venues:


Our Tuesday teams breezed through opening round topics such as the upcoming remake of “The Grinch”, geometric shapes, the pommel horse, and these two Vice Presidential candidates:

A whopping 37% of the field rolled through Tuesday’s first round to post a perfect score of 36 points.


The difficulty level picked up significantly in Tuesday’s second stanza, as our audio clue included a rather challenging two-point bonus.  We asked our teams to identify three music groups whose names contain “-ING”.  Counting Crows (“Accidentally in Love”) seemed easy enough, but the field struggled to recognize Breaking Benjamin (“So Cold”) and Stabbing Westward (“Save Yourself”).  Only 11% of our teams tacked on bonus points with all three correct answers.  Next up, we took a quick snack break to discuss this “national” treat:


Other second round topics included TV uncles named Jesse, the Neon Boneyard of Las Vegas, and African geography.  Four teams swept the second round with a perfect score: How Did I Get Here? (Greene Growlers), S & M & M’s (Buffalo Wild Wings), Stink Floyd (Monkey La La), and Here For the Beer (Perry’s).


U.S. license plates and notable TV moments highlighted Tuesday’s halftime page, which yielded six perfect scores and an overall average of 16.9 points.  These were your highest scoring Tuesday teams at the halftime break:


Tuesday’s second half began with a question in the category of Three Clues / One Dog Breed:

CLUE 1: At 14 wins, this dog breed with a three-word name has won the most Best in Show titles at Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show.

CLUE 2: Fictional dogs of this breed include Asta in the film “The Thin Man” and Snowy, the canine companion of Tin Tin.

Very few teams even ventured a guess at this point, leading to just five teams picking up two bonus points with the early answer of the Wire Fox Terrier:

After dealing with topics such as the novel “One Hundred Years of Solitude” and U.S. islands, we closed the third round with the most difficult bonus question of the night, as only four teams could identify “Leaders” as the subtitle of the first expansion pack to the board game “7 Wonders”.  Not surprisingly, the third round did not see any team earn a perfect score.


Tuesday’s final round opened with a questions concerning the TV characters for which Taylor Swift named her dogs: Olivia Benson and Meredith Grey.  We took a drink of sarsaparilla, listened to motivational speaker Tony Robbins, and discussed the shot-by-shot remake of this classic horror film:

Four teams ran the table in the fourth round by posting a perfect score of 36 points: Half Nelsons (Buffalo Wild Wings), S & M & M’s (Buffalo Wild Wings),  Gouda ‘Nuff For Me (Cheesetique), and Just Us (Casa Tequila).  Here is your pre-final leaderboard from Tuesday night:

TUESDAY’S FINAL QUESTION (38.7% success rate)

–> In August of 2016, which musician became the first woman in her forties to take a song to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 since Madonna accomplished the feat in the year 2000?

Just over one-third of our teams earned wagering points on this final question with the correct response of Sia.  None of our teams recorded the Perfect 21 on Tuesday night, as every team missed at least one wagering question.  Here is your final overall leaderboard from Tuesday night:
