Sometimes Trivia is Simply Black and White…

I know, it’s getting repetitive at this point, but Pour House Trivia welcomed ANOTHER new venue to the family as trivia kicked off at the Greene Turtle in Leesburg.  Our newest host Aaron is keeping himself quite busy!  Meanwhile, we crowned two more House Champions for Season XV.  On to the nightly recaps:

WEDNESDAY’S STATS AND FACTS (102 teams across 14 venues):

–> Highest Overall Score: The Fan Club (The Tavern) with 167

–> Highest Score after Round 4: We Need an Adult (Furnace) with 165

–> Highest First Half Score: We Need an Adult with 91

–> Perfect 21 (correct on all wagers and final): Mamma Lu’s (The Tavern), Satan’s School for Girls (Memories)

–> Our halftime page featured CamelCase companies (MasterCard, BlackBerry, etc.).  The average score was 17.4, with about 32% of our teams scoring a perfect 20 points.

–> The 6-4-2 question played to a similar difficulty level, as 28% of our teams earned six points by knowing that a checkers game begins with 24 pieces on the board.

TONIGHT’S FINAL QUESTION (12.7% success rate):

–>  19th century French president Jules Grevy lends his name to the largest species of what animal that is classified within the Equus genus?  (you’ll find the answer later in this blog)

Valley Grill in Middletown, MD

WHEW! That was one hell of a game of Pour House out at Valley Grill, I mean c’mon, NINETEEN TEAMS?  We officially beat the indoor house record, and I can’t imagine what the patio situation is going to be like once the weather starts cooperating.  I’ll need to stock up on Monster and Ativan.  Playoffs, Pub Crawl, and World Series is all getting close so make sure you get with me if you’re going to make it, and make sure you are back next Wednesday for the “House Champs” game, for what I’ve seen of the stats so far, it’s going to be WAR!

Here we go, round one. First off we rhymed three times with Ford, gourd, and this little lady…

We then played some fictional football…

Friday Night Lights

To end the first round we munched on some Sunbeam bread, and talked about Ohio and its current Governor, who was the last hold out for the Republican nomination in 2016.

Trump Kasich Ohio

Round two featured another Republican with former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, went to a Spanish food fight, and unveiled Ken Griffey Jr.’s statue at SafeCo Field in Seattle.  After that we went to Broadway to catch three shows, one of which about creating the worst possible musical imaginable.

Producers

Let’s not forget a little Disney action as well…

Snow White

On to round three, and speaking of the aforementioned Sweden, we found out that all of the Nobel Prizes are awarded in that fine country except the Peace prize, and sadly the folks at ABC just WON’T LET THIS SHOW DIE!

American Idol Cowell

I needed a little acetaminophen after that American Idol announcement, or maybe just a quick read of Martin Luther’s “95 Theses”. Does anyone have Latin dictionary that I could borrow for say, forever? We ended this round with some U.S. States as mentioned in pop culture and literature.

Hawaii

Final round had nine teams in the running for prizes. We only had a couple of teams identify both Rafael Nadal and Bjorn Borg and their success with the French Open, and the teams had a 50/50 shot on the Romeo & Juliet question unless they paid attention to the mention of the last name Capulet.  We played a little Nintendo DS, and remember Jay-Z’s sampling of yet another Broadway show. Cue Dr. Evil and Mini Me.

 

The biggest cheer of the night was the announcement of a CATEGORY, and it was the Triple 50/50: Han Solo or Greedo.  Folks couldn’t wait to get to that set of questions.

Star Wars

It took a Jay-Z tiebreaker to settle third place tonight.  Here are your results:

First Place:  Southpaw Fish

Second Place:  Stupider, Sexier Flanders

Third Place:  Fat Kids are Hard to Kidnap

Next week’s first category for the House Championship game is Disney’s Animal Kingdom Safari.

The Tavern in Olney, MD

We had a packed house and a really intense game of trivia on Wednesday here at The Tavern in Olney!  I don’t know if it’s the smell of playoffs in the air, but our teams came here with their A game tonight!  I knew it was going to be a great game to see when after the halftime puzzle page, there were three teams tied for first place.

The third round spread the field a little, as the Roger Moore Fan Club snuck into the lead by just two points.  They maintained that momentum through the final round.  Thankfully the triple tie from halftime was undone by the time we reached the final question, but we did have a tie for third place left to deal with!  Unlike some of the other Pour House Trivia venues, I actually had some CORRECT answers on the final question, and once the answers were turned in, the leaderboard changed up one last time, and the tie resolved itself with some strategic wagering!

Holding onto third place tonight was In First Place.  Moving up into the second place spot with one of the two correct answers on the final question was Mamma Lu’s.  Slowly pulling away with first place after the third round and holding on for their second win in a row was the Roger Moore Fan Club.  With a nice pull on a very tough final question, they clinch the Season XV House Championship for the fifth season in a row!

Our winners choice 1960’s TV Sitcoms for next week’s first category.  That will be a great way to start off the final week of Season XV for our House Champions.  Study up and come join us for a GREAT game on Wednesday evening at The Tavern!!

Belles’ Sports Bar in Frederick, MD

Seven teams joined us tonight for Pour House Trivia at Belles’ Sports Bar with nearly every team within striking distance of each other the entire night.  The first two rounds of the night went about as smooth as can be expected.  The only difficult question of the first half was the audio Broadway question.  All of the answers were given: “The Producers”, “Avenue Q”, and “The Music Man”, but most teams could only muster one answer or would get two in the incorrect order!  However, all of the teams knew this was not their strong question and took the smart wager of one point to avoid any big losses.  At the end of the first half, we had #FatKidDanceParty in first place at 87 points, followed closely by It’s Always Sunny on Uranus with 86 points, and Just Good Enough in third place at 83 points.  But with the top six teams were within ten points of the leader, the game would only get more interesting from this point on!

In the third round, the first question immediately changed the outcome of the game!  The category was Three Clues / One Country.  The final clue tripped up some teams, including the leaders for a big nine-point wager!  The clue was “The Nobel Peace Prize is presented here”, but the answer is Norway!  Sweden was a common wrong answer because all of the other Nobel Prizes are awarded in Stockholm.  At the end of three rounds, we had It’s Only Sunny on Uranus in first place, with Just Good Enough in second place, and Flight Level Awesome in third place.

The fourth round went great, but there was a hiccup by the leaders again for nine points, this time in the video game consoles questions.  At the end of the final round, we had a THREE-WAY tie for first!  #FatKidDanceParty, Just Good Enough, and Formal Protest we jammed at the top.   It’s Always Sunny on Uranus had dropped to fourth, but once again our top six teams were all within 14 points of the lead!  We needed a double tiebreaker to settle things tonight, but after they were the only team to answer the final correctly, it was It’s Always Sunny on Uranus who finished off an epic comeback with the win!  After the tiebreakers for second place, our final results looked like this:

First Place:  It’s Always Sunny on Uranus

Second Place:  Just Good Enough (closest on the tiebreaker)

Third Place:  #FatKidDanceParty (tied for second closest on the first tiebreaker, then closest on the second tie breaker)

Next week’s first category:  Sam sings Jimmy Buffet!

Bennigan’s in Frederick, MD

Wednesday nights are always hoppin’ here at Bennigan’s n Frederick, and tonight’s game of Pour House Trivia was no exception!

Highlights of the Night:

In “How-Many-Names-Do-You-Need?”: I had no idea how many names Lorde actually had.  The fact that Lorde isn’t one of them is even more astounding!  She’s just got a gaggle of names that all seem like they come from different origins, and she clearly needs to be stopped!

In “Back-to-Broadway-With-Y’all”: The Broadway Audio question was a doozy tonight, with none of the three shows coming easy to a lot of teams.  I’m never seen “The Music Man” but I’m familiar with “Avenue Q” and “The Producers”, so those I probably would’ve answered correctly, but it was a tough one for everyone tonight.

In “Gettin-Nerdy-In-Here”: Of all the categories we’ve asked in the past, an explicitly Han Solo vs Greedo question is just about the nerdiest that I can think of.  Thankfully it was “acceptably” difficult, because the belly-aching was loud and long during Round 4!  Jay-Z was too easy but the bonus was too hard!  Juliet was too easy, but Nadal and Borg were too hard!  Y’all are so hard to please!

After one team virtually ran away with the game in the fourth round, the final was a total whiff tonight, so the podium was pretty much set.

In third place tonight, Literally Anything!

In second place tonight, Momentary Lapse of Reason!

In first place tonight, Poovey Farms!

Great game tonight guys!  Next week we’ll kick things off with a question in the category of Beethoven’s Compositional Periods.  Whatever the hell that is…Study up, and we’ll see you next time!

Until then,

~ Ian

Top Golf in Alexandria, VA

What did my sub Katie do here last week!?  Did she feed everyone after midnight!?  Tonight we had a record ten teams playing Pour House Trivia at TopGolf Alexandria!  Because of that, we had some stiff competition.  We almost had more teams, but they had a golf appointment to keep.  Perhaps, that was to their benefit, because we definitely had some very knowledgeable teams, old and new today.  Let’s see what happened tonight.

Round 1 had teams doing some lateral thinking in attempting to figure out which U.S. state has a capital named after an Italian explorer.  Some guessed North Carolina, but Sir Walter Raleigh was English instead.  Then, Round 2’s audio round of Broadway show tunes revealed that nobody watches Broadway as most teams zeroed or minimally picked up their points.  No two-point bonus there.  But teams bounced back knowing about New York City mayors and the famous La Tomatina festival in Bunol, Spain.  The halftime sheet had four teams scoring perfect twenties.  But some teams thought it was KitchenMaid instead of KitchenAid.  So close and yet so far.

Rnd 3 ws n xrcs in spllng s vryn knw wht “acetaminophen” s, bt cld nt spll t prprly.  Later, a question about titles containing U.S. states had most people know Florida-Georgia Line, a few forgetting the forgettable 2010 “Hawaii 5-0”, and no-one getting “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?”  Later on in Round 4, teams forgot that Roger Federer is Swiss as they tried to identify the Swede and Spaniard that have won at least six Men’s Singles titles at the French Open.  And only one team knew the subtitle to Jay-Z’s (or for our Canadian friends, Jay-Zed) “Hard Knock Life”.

Our Final Question of the night was a real doozy, asking about an equine named after French leader Jules Grevy.  Everyone either guessed giraffe or horse, but failed to consider that a zebra is also an equine.  And because of that, we had a tie-breaker for third place between Two Balls and One Bag and Easter Bunnies.  The tie-breaker asked how many Grammys had Jay-Z won.  Easter Bunnies was only one away from 21, so our medal table looked like this:

First Place: Quiz in My Pants

Second Place: Jackie’s Team

Third Place: Easter Bunnies

Next week’s first category: “Transformers” (the franchise, not the electrical components)

Greene Turtle in Leesburg, VA

Opening night at the Greene Turtle in Leesburg saw great action with a head-to-head match-up between two of our finest Pour House Trivia teams.  Round one gave us some beer, a little rhyming, Friday Night Lights, and some branding.  Every question was aced by our teams but thanks to a trio of two-point bonuses, Obscure References took a slight lead.

Round two kicked off with our audio question, where no one got the one I thought everyone should: “Springtime For Hitler” from “The Producers”.  The field bounced back though, as the rest of this round on politics, baseball, food fights, and Disney seemed to be a breeze for our teams.  After notching a perfect score on our halftime round, team Obscure References held on to their lead.

Round three took us over to Norway and then back to America(n Idol) and its states.  I was astounded with the pull of acetaminophen, as I don’t think I would have come up with that nor came close to a correct spelling (tonight’s game had me in tongue twisters all night!).  With five correct answers in this round, Obscure References added to their game-long lead.

Round four was just as solid as the other three rounds, with just one stumble over Jay-Z to start.  Our questions on gaming, tennis, Shakespeare, and Star Wars were a piece of cake!  By the way, Han definitely shot first.  I finally got to see my teams genuinely perplexed with our final question.  No one knew it was the Grevy’s zebra, but with strategic wagering team Obscure References came out on top.  Thanks once again to our top teams:

First Place:  Obscure References

Second Place:  Those Cool Moms

Third Place:  I Can’t Stay All Night

Bennigan’s in Clarksburg, MD

It was a cold day in the month of May.  The rain was heavy, the wind was fierce.  Very luckily, our game wasn’t outside.  It felt goooood in here as we “bested” the inconsistent weather and had ourselves another week of Pour House Trivia!  Dusty Baker School of Management was out tonight — they usually have the advantage on any given trivia night, so tonight it seemed like it was anybody’s game!

Two Peas was back with a different name tonight, playing as Irish Mafia, while everyone else was sporting their usual monikers.  Rhymes with Orange came out to a lead early with the help of a great first half and a perfect halftime page! They’d hope Round 3 was kind to them as they tried to keep their lead in tact!  But the other teams were close and looked to close the gap very quickly!

Round 3 didn’t give much help to the other teams hoping to usurp the top spot from Rhymes with Orange as most every team went five-for-five on the wagering questions.  You guys getting better or are we getting soft?  We’ll keep those numbers in mind moving forward hehe…  An easy 6-4-2 created very little suspense too so it was up to the fourth round.  A missed 50/50 on Shakespeare cost Rhymes with Orange five points, but it wasn’t enough as they still held a commanding lead going into the final question.

With the lead, RwO bet small and would be able to win with a correct response OR a miss and no teams within striking distance getting it correct. Well, tonight’s question played quite difficult.  We asked for the large animal named for French president Jules Grevy, the largest of its species. As a hint, we said it fell in the Equus genus, meaning it was some sort of horse, just had to know which one!  Well, the answer here is the ZEBRA!  The world’s largest species of zebra is Grevy’s zebra and not many teams able to lock into that (many saying “giraffe”, which makes sense if you want a large animal with hooves…).

With that, Irish Mafia had the answer in RIGHT AWAY while the other teams waited around for 2 minutes, all coming up short with wrong answers.  Irish Mafia would have this game on lock if Rhymes with Orange wasn’t able to come up with the correct response.  As time expired, Rhymes with Orange was the last team to turn in their response. They hand me a slip that says “zebra” and they did it.  Rhymes with Orange stays alive and caps off a great performance with a win! Irish Mafia, the only other correct response getting second place tonight, Roaming Gnomes in third.

We’re back next week. Next week PLAYOFF WEEK! Come join us to get prepped for those cash games, hope to see you all there!

Memories in Mount Airy, MD

It’s good to be back at Memories!  The power stayed on, and teams slugged it our for a spot on the podium.  We had a few new teams in the mix, so our veteran teams had to behave themselves (mostly).  The first category of the Normans (of the Middle Ages) left a lot of teams scratching their heads and guessing a monarch-sounding name. That separated the teams out early, and gave everyone a goal to work towards.

The Broadway-themed audio clue proved to be a divisive question to begin the second round.  About half of the field earned their wagers on this question, but each of those teams also earned the two-point bonus!  I guess showtunes is one of those topics where you either know a lot or nothing at all.  The halftime sheet was a breeze for our field tonight, with the average hovering just over 18 points.  Satan’s School for Girls turned in one of the perfect 20s in the field, giving them a five-point cushion at the break.  Sexual Chocolate shrunk the lead a bit in the fourth round, as they were the only team to earn a two-point bonus on the hip hop question, by knowing the parenthetical title of the Jay-Z song “Hard Knock Life (Ghetto Anthem)”.  As we progressed, we really tested teams’ skill at “listening to the whole question”, with some teams turning in wrong answers early.  ProTip: Even if the question seems easy, double check that your team all heard the same question that you did.

Regardless, teams stayed within striking distance of each other throughout the game, even after a tough fourth round (hope you had someone young on your team!).  That brought us to the final question, and it was a rough one.  Only two teams pulled that one out, which resulted in a familiar Top 3:

First Place:  Satan’s School for Girls

Second Place:  Sexual Chocolate

Third Place: LOWL

School was back in session, as SS4G never lost the lead all night.  They selected Candy of the 1970’s as next week’s first category, so brush up on your sweets and I’ll see you next week!

Furnace Bar and Grill in Thurmont, MD

Tonight at the Furnace Bar and Grill in Thurmont, we featured another competitive battle for our top prizes.  At the end the first round, every single team was tied with 32 points, except for Member Berries that is, who held the top spot by one point ahead of the pack!  Things changed rather quickly in the second round as We Need An Adult was the ONLY team to score points on our Broadway audio question.  Not only were they only team to earn their wager, they also snagged the two-point bonus!  A full 11 points on that question vaulted them into the lead as they went for eight wins in a row.

No team was able to swing a perfect halftime page tonight, but three teams notched 19 points, include We Need an Adult, who led the field with 91 points at the break, just one point off of a perfect game.  As the game progressed, We Need an Adult ran away from the competition.  At the conclusion of the fourth round, they held a staggering 24-point lead, meaning they could bet 11 points on the final without any threat of losing tonight’s game.  Meanwhile, we had a tie for second place  between the Goobers and newcomers Shhhh.  The Goobers went with the strategy of wagering zero points on the final question, while Shhhh went all in.  The conservative approach paid off, since no team was able to come up with the correct response on the final question.  After all of the crazy wagering here is how we ended up tonight.  In third place, making a comeback into the top three on the final question was Member Berries (also thanks to a zero wager).  Finishing in second place was the Goobers.  Taking home the win for their 8th victory in a row was We Need an Adult!  They are in fine form as we hit the post season in just ten days.

Barefoot Bernie’s in Hagerstown, MD

Oh, I love the rainy nights!  Especially when there’s trivia. Three veteran teams and one new one came out to play tonight at Barefoot Bernie’s restaurant on the Dual Highway.  We started with a question about the NBA draft, and ended with a stumper about animals.  I would like to welcome Two Slot; thanks for stopping by even if you’re just passing through.  Next week we’ll be winding down the season and getting all of the playoff invitations passed out and crowning a bar champ!  Will it be Alternative Answers, or could the Sad Fat Dragons snake them?  Stay tuned faithful viewer, to find out!

This evening we had a strong showing from out main teams. The new comer, Two Slot, flirted with third place early on in the game, but couldn’t hold on against the big guns.  Everyone got our rhyming question in the first round, but only the Sad Fat Dragons could give me all three Broadway musicals from the audio question.  They were also the only team to know that “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” was the first full-length animated feature film.  As if that wasn’t enough, Sad Fat Dragons also recorded one of the two perfect scores on the halftime round.  Needless to say, they had a fairly comfortable lead after the first half.

It was more of the same in the second half, as Sad Fat Dragons were up by 11 points as we arrived at the final question!  Obviously, they pulled the tactical difference-plus-one-wager and bet only the necessary two points to cover the second place team Pen Island.  However, tonight’s question was a doozy.  Though every team guessed giraffe, in reference to the equine named for Jules Grevy, the answer we were looking for was the zebra!  Sorry folks, a giraffe is not an equine.

Third place went to Alternative Answers, while Pen Island held on to second place.  Sad Fat Dragons kept a hold on first place to win tonight’s game, and (perhaps more importantly), prevent Alternative Answers from clinching the house championship.  It will all come down to next week’s game, in which we’ll start by asking a question on the Norwegian band Burzum.  Good luck and we’ll see you then!

Applebee’s in Waynesboro, PA

Thanks everyone for coming out to Applebee’s in Waynesboro for another great night of trivia!  With World Series XV rapidly approaching and house champion still up for grabs, it was only fitting that we had a very close game and something that hasn’t happened in a while…a tie breaker!  Here are some highlights:

To start things off we went back to high school with a winner’s choice category about Algebra I, where teams were asked about the ever frustrating quadratic equation. Round One was a smooth round for most teams, and we ended the round with a three way tie for first place between Bees?, Alternative Facts, and JuJu and Friends.

Thanks in part to being the only team to correctly identify all three musicals in our audio clue about Broadway, Not Your Team put together a near perfect Round Two, only missing one bonus along the way (which was the exact year that Snow White was released – that’s a tough one!). They also turned in one of the top puzzle pages of the night to come out of halftime with the lead, but Bees? and Alternative Facts were only one point behind.

Round Three is where the leaderboard started to change drastically. JuJu and Friends turned in another perfect round, getting all of the questions and bonuses, and for two of those bonuses they were the ONLY team to get them right. They were also the only team to get the 6-4-2 question correct from only the six point clue. This lead to JuJu and Friends separating themselves from the pack, ending the round with a seven point lead over Not Your Team and Bees?, who were still battling it out for second place while Alternative Facts dropped to 5th.

Round Four was brutal for some of our teams, but not for JuJu and Friends. They almost turned in another perfect round, only missing the question about “Hip Hoppers” but since no team got it right (nobody out there listens to Jay-Z? Really?) there was no harm no foul. In fact, yet again they were the only team to get one of the bonuses, correctly guessing that Rafael Nadal and Bjorn Borg were the only two tennis players since the 60’s to win at least six titles at the French Open. We closed out the round with a 50/50: Han Solo or Greedo, but to everyone’s disappointment we did not ask who shot first. JuJu and Friends went into the final with a nine point lead over Not Your Team, but Alternative Facts was not far behind in third.

Our final was particularly tough, with no teams getting it correct. However, thanks to some conservative betting from Wingin It, they were able to come from behind and force a tiebreaker between them and Alternative Facts. We went back to Jay-Z again for the tiebreaker, asking the two teams to try and come as close as possible to the amount of Grammy Awards he had won (he’s won 21!). Alternative Facts came closest with a guess of 24, so they were able to take home third place, while JuJu and Friends held onto their lead and took home the victory. Here are your top three:

First Place:  JuJu and Friends

Second Place:  Not Your Team

Third Place:  Alternative Facts

Cafe Nola in Frederick, MD

We’re in our third week of Pour House Trivia at Cafe Nola in downtown Frederick, and Wednesdays here have never been more fun!  Our returning champs Tuna Noodle Casserole were looking to take home another win, but we hosted an extremely close game that kept everyone on the edge of their seats.

All five teams were off to a great start and at the end of Round One, as only six points separated the highest score from the lowest.  Almost every team scored the bonus in our first three-part question, naming the rhyming answers Ford, Gourd, and Lorde.  In the second round, there were some creative spellings of Rudy Giuliani (“Jullianei,” “Juliani”), who everyone knew was named Time Magazine’s Person of the Year in 2001.

Newcomers Smut Lovers killed it on the half-time sheet, scoring a perfect 20.  After the half, the close game became a nail-biter, with team totals of 78, 79, 79, 80, and 81 points!  Every single team earned the two-point bonus on their Three Clues question, identifying Norway as the host of the 6th and 17th Winter Olympics and being the only Scandinavian country to appear in Epcot’s World Showcase.  Later in the round, only the Smut Lovers earned points in our second three-parter by naming the correct titles containing state names “Hawaii Five-O”, Florida-Georgia Line, and “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?”

Going into Round 4, we had a three-way tie for first between Tuna Noodle Casserole, Smut Lovers, and Much Mofre Deeper.  But with a perfect final round, TNC pulled ahead going into the final question.  Unfortunately for our players, the final question was a doozy (no one was able to answer correctly).  Strategic wagering shifted the standings a bit, giving us our top three teams:

First Place:  Tuna Noodle Casserole (two in a row!)

Second Place:  Smut Lovers

Third Place:  Malort

Clover Theater in Cloverdale, CA

Now that was close.  At the Clover Theater here in Cloverdale, no team could break away from the pack, as a great mix of easy and difficult questions kept the entire field within striking distance of each other the entire night!  The first round progressed smoothly, although a question on Sunbeam bread threw off a few of our teams.  The second round began with a tough audio question on Broadway showtunes.  While most of our teams earned their wagers, the Sparklers and the Power Tripping Geoducks were the only teams to recognize all three of songs.  At the close of the round, the Laffey Taffez gained two points on the field by being the only team to know the year in which “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” was released.

The halftime page played relatively easy tonight, with most teams able to top 18 points.  But the 20 points from Southern Comfort boosted them to a two-point lead at the break.  The Brainy Yaks kept the game close by being the only team to earn six points on the 6-4-2 question, while Laffey Taffez once again scored the only two-point bonus on the Martin Luther question, as they knew that the famed 95 Theses was nailed to a church door in Wittenburg.  We went into the Final Category with two teams tied for first, one team just two points back, and another two teams tied close behind in fourth place. Grevy’s zebra stumped nine out of our 11 teams but the Brainy Yaks figured it out and ended up with their second straight win.

The best wrong answer that actually makes a lot of sense: “The Washingtons”, as the name of a play that contains a US State in its title and has main character names of George and Martha.  Our season ends next week.  The Unfrozen Caveman Lawyers pretty much have it wrapped up but team pride is still at stake.

First Place:  Brainy Yaks

Second Place:  Let’s Get Quizzical

Third Place:  Golden Snitches
