Last weekend’s games of Pour House Trivia welcomed 30 teams across four venues.  PLEASE NOTE the changes to the upcoming weekend trivia schedule!

FIRST ROUND:

Opening round topics from last weekend included Julia Roberts, the alcoholic drink Long Island Iced Tea, the city of  Philadelphia, and the meerkat.  Three teams began their game with a perfect first round score of 36 points.

SECOND ROUND:

Last weekend’s audio questions featured cover songs and songs that included a possessive female name.  Other second round topics included curling, the news network CNN, the Green Pay Packers, and Ryan Seacrest.  Quality Guesswork and That’s So Clavin (Pretzel and Pizza Creations) earned the only perfect score during last weekend’s second round.

HALFTIME:

Topics from last weekend’s halftime pages included brand name faces and items that include the word “NEW.”  Across the board, the overall average reached 14. points, with one team earning a perfect score.  Here is last weekend’s halftime leaderboard:

THIRD ROUND:

Our Third Round this weekend featured the topics of the Daytona 500, a trip to Red Square, the film Dead Poet’s Society, and the NFL teams Kansas City Chiefs and Las Vegas Raiders. Due to several bonuses questions where the percentages of correct answers were low we saw no teams earn a perfect score in Round Three. 

FOURTH ROUND:

Final round topics from last weekend included Drunk History, the Taylor Swift song “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” the nation of Kuwait, the long-running sitcom The Simpsons, the FCC, and then we finished by taking a trip to Italy. 

 Two teams, Sexual Chocolate (Belles’) and Lone Strangers (Mason Social) finished Round Four with a perfect score. 

After four rounds of play, the weekend leaderboard included these teams:
