Last Night before Post Season!
Crowning the last of our house Champions, getting our lists on lock down for playoff invites, getting psyched for Pub Crawl Saturday! Congrats to all of our big Season 13 winners so far, can’t wait to see what the post looks like!
To put it mildly, it was a bit of a roller coaster ride at Quincy’s in Gaithersburg. For three rounds, I thought we were going to see a few teams challenge the all-time highest score in PHT history! One of those teams was our Season XIII house champs Blue Collar, who tied the PHT record with 96 first half points! They played a perfect game, picking up every two point bonus along the way. They were still in the lead with a perfect game after Round 3, but that’s when things changed. The fourth round included a question on a university founded by Thomas Jefferson. Nearly every team went for the seemingly obvious answer without listening to the rest of the clue. As a result, only one team picked up the correct response, setting the tone for the rest of the game. That team with the correct response was Lowered Expectations, and they rode that momentum to another victory! John Lithgow Fan Club took second with the aforementioned Blue Collar settling for third. We’ll begin next week’s game with a question on Astronomy! ~ Matt

Crash Boom Bam! What a rally we had Thursday night at Champions! I had the pleasure of hosting the Season 13 finale!

Thoroughly Screwed in 1st

The teams went neck and neck all the way to the final this week! After the first round, all teams were within 8 points of eachother. Moving on to the second, the gap started to increase, with the picture round being the primary culprit. The teams that were hurt by the picture round came right on back, making a 14 point differential going into the final; it was still anybody’s game! The teams in first and second place, only differing by one point each, wagered big going into the final! Luckily, both teams got the correct answer, however, it was GTS who pulled out the win once again by 1 point to the Quizknows! The new team Navy, in from Maryland, received a nice 3rd place! Not bad for a first time! Excellent night everyone!

Clever team name never disappoints – wagering it all on the final question to ensure a 1st place slot. Cup Chicks are the under dogs but not tonight, tonight they came in second place. House CHampions In Bocca took home the 3rd place slot.

House Champions In Bocca took home the 3rd place slot. Next week we start with Astronomy- so look up!
There were a lot of familiar faces that l haven’t seen in a while in for trivia last night at Guido’s Speakeasy! It was real nice to see some of the old teams visiting us at the late game of the week, and two of them finished in the top 3! The game was competitive so we needed a tie breaker after the final to settle some things up, and this is how it ended… In 3rd was Friends of Dick Johnson, 2nd went to Roosevelt’s Polio Throw and the team in 1st went incognito as Chimpan-A! (You may know them as Stink Floyd) To show how much they miss us here(well, at least our super-awesome bartender) , they picked “Famous Casey’s” for next weeks winners choice! So join us this Thursday for some great times at Guido’s Speakeasy!! ~ Jon J
