Some Tough Ones this Tuesday!
We love making our teams really think about questions, and tonight gave us a few opportunities to really rattle their brains. Watching teams celebrate a hard fought round is way more fun then breezing through simple questions.. Nice job tonight working up those brain cells!
A crazy night at Whole Foods as 11 teams came out to play. I had marbles in my mouth today and you guys were sports about it! While there were some doozies for questions in the end it was a close game but Kellie’s Heroes ended up taking the gold for the second week in a row!
As Season XIII winds to a close, I expect to see some of the Capitol City Brewing teams putting their A-game forward as we gear up for the World Series. One of our juggernaut teams, Capital Hillbillies (tonight playing as Hoosier Daddy) put a hurting on the field, extending their lead to 12 points at the end of Round 4. Would they be bold on their wager or play for a potential tiebreaker? They went for the straight win (with a one-point wager), and apparently the final question was no problem, as they held on for the win. It’s hard to believe that it’s been over two months since their last win, but that pretty much sums up the level of competition here… Second place went to Menace to Sobriety, with Capitol City Goofballs taking third. Next week, an audio clue on Progressive Rock! ~ Matt
Tonight’s final really up ended everything down here at Cugini’s in Poolesville, and congrats to the two teams that answered correctly as this was one of our tougher finals as of late! Don’t forget to check the website for info on the playoffs and World Series as they are getting close. Here are tonight’s results:
Never Mind in 1st
MoMo in 2nd
Level 3 Booksellers in 3rd
First category for next week is “Hamilton: The Musical” ~ Ronnie
Tonight’s game opened with one of the more ridiculous categories I’ve heard, a bird call audio question. The question ended up giving a clue about there being a notable cartoon bird of this species, which was the woodpecker. In the first half we also had questions about two pop culture juggernauts, Star Wars and Harry Potter. The Star Wars question asked about ‘Rogue One’ which is coming out this year. The Harry Potter question asked about the fictional Platform 9 3/4, which is how people get to Hogwarts.
Halftime asked teams to identify the zombie movie based on the picture, as well as identifying 5-letter song titles based on the artist and a lyric. Most teams did really well on this one, as the zombie movies gave them an answer bank to work with which certainly helped. In the second half we had a multiple choice question about the ‘Pritzker Prize’, which apparently is a real thing and is given out for architecture, something almost all the teams guessed correctly based on all the 1-point wagers put on it.
In the final round we had a few tough questions that definitely shifted the balance around a bit. The Beverage Brands question asked about a citrus flavored drink which has a nickname that is basically just dropping the last 6 letters of its name. Only a few teams managed to figure out we were talking about Sunny Delight, which is often called SunnyD. We also had a tough Shakespeare question, which asked for the only play with the name of an English city in its title, which was The Merry Wives of Windsor; only one team managed to get that one.
The final question for tonight was in World Geography, and asked for the Central American country that borders four other countries, which is the most among Central American countries. Only two teams got the correct answer of Guatemala (bordering Mexico, Belize, Honduras, and El Salvador) which ended up being the top two teams. Third place tonight went to Ignorance is Bliss, with second going to Fractured But Whole. The winners tonight, building the lead on a strong fourth round, congrats to Suck It Trebek! Next week we start with a question about the YouTube personality Graveyard Girl (she does makeup stuff apparently), so good luck with that! I’ll see you all then!
Until next time,
We had a very competitive game this week, as top teams battled for those crucial late-season points. We’ve still got over a month to go before World Series XIII, but teams are still scrambling to secure last-minute entrances to The Big Show.
…and a complete stumper of a final gave use our top 3.
Third Place: Axis of Ignorance
Second Place: Ignorance Is Bliss
First Place: Poovey Farms
Poovey makes it three in a row, and keeps the theme alive with a, “Triple 50/50: DC Hero or Villain” first category. At least it’s not an audio clue…
Senor Tequila’s in Germantown, Md
The liquor was quite clearly flowing tonight at Senor Tequilas, because tonight’s game of Pour House Trivia was sassy and silly all night long!
Highlights of the Night:
In “Quiet-In-the-Peanut-Gallery”: The moaning and groaning was strong tonight! I get there are unpopular categories, but you guys could not stop letting your dissatisfaction be known! Easy people, I’m just the host with the most! Take it up with the writers!
Honorable Mention tonight to Beer Pressure who would’ve taken second if they had a legal number of players!
In third place tonight, Axl’s Doghouse!
In second place tonight, Unemployed Hand Models Seeking Hand Jobs!
In first place tonight, the John Lithgow Fan Club!
Great game everyone! Next week we’ll kick things off with an African Capitals question! Study up, and we’ll see you next time!
It was an allusion to Itsy Bitsy teenie Weenie…
Whhooda thunk?!?!? And whooda thunk 2 “T’s” in Sagittarius?!?!?! Good times Tuesday at Monkey La La trivia night. Full house of teams contested the Monkey Loot up for grabs. Some fun questions popped up to color the night a bit:
- Anything Violent Femmes is always fun! ADD it UP!
- A nice glass of Sunny D helped quench our trivia thirst in Round 4…but my favorite question of the night…was…
Oh yes…the garden Gnome made a cameo at Pour House Trivia! Good game tonight everyone. Thanks a bunch for spending your Tuesday with me at La La for some trivia. And congrats to our TOP 3 teams, who clinched it by nailing a tough final Q on Guatemala.
And that was a stellar Tuesday for the books y’all! Join us next Tuesday night when we kick off with a question on the music legend: PRINCE. See you then 🙂 DG
