The Thursday Throwdown – Trivia Style!
I got a fever, and Christopher Walken is always there to cure it! Yup, the CW (Walken that is) reared his head in Thursday’s trivia final question and changed everything at many venues! Great night at the trivia games everyone! Thanks for coming out to play! Remember Pub Crawl, Playoffs, and World Series Season 12 at the end of this month! INVITES BEGIN GOING OUT NEXT WEEK!
It was only three weeks, but it felt like much longer since the last time we all got together at Quincy’s for Thursday Night Trivia. A few of the teams needed to shake off a little rust after the holiday break, but our current season leaders, Blue Collar, picked up right where they left off by storming through tonight’s set, and mounting a 12-point lead heading into the final question. Despite landing one of their weaker categories, they felt confident enough NOT to play for the the tie and go for the outright win. Luckily, the final was a doozy, and essentially stumped our field tonight, meaning that no one could overtake Blue Collar tonight. Another win next week will clinch the house championship! Second place went to Lowered Expectations with Breadsticks taking third. Next week, we’ll begin with a question on 1980s Hair Metal Bands! ~ Matt
We had a few questions stump the folks down here at Bunker tonight, I guess we can just chalk it off to the two week holiday break we had so don’t worry much! Remember World Series and Pub Crawl are coming so think about those dates and your availability. Here are the results of tonight’s action:
Indians in 1st
Cranius Maximus in 2nd
Your Mom in 3rd.
Our first category for next week is a bit narrow but should be easy to research, the 1968 Detroit Tigers! ~ Ronnie
It seemed like tonight everyone’s new years resolution was to come to trivia! What a crowd. What a game! Black dogs started the year off right in First place! Followed closely by In Bocca, don’t we wish we all were there? Clever team name made a good effort on his own, making it to the third place slot. New year new you! Trivia is the place to be on Thursday nights in Bel Air! Next week we kick off with Iraq!
Fish Market – Alexandria, VA
Blue Parrott – St. Petersburg, FL
It feels like nearly a year since we last played at the Blue Parrot! Oh wait, its because we went from 2015 to 2016 and with that, we had the most teams we have ever seen! With 9 teams, all were in it to win it! Bandits brought their extra bandits for the holidays, and Shore Nuff invited so many friends to trivia, they had to make 4 separate teams! Thanks to all of those who participated and I hope you had an amazing time. It was a fight to the finish. Bandits lead the way at halftime, with the next team trailing by 13 points! Most of the other teams at halftime were within 10 points of each other. Second half seemed tough for some, and assisted others in catching up. Ruthie’s Marauders, a new team who branched off of Shore Nuff, was in 7th place at halftime, but pulled out a 3rd place going into the Final! The Final question came down to wagering, given that no teams figured out a correct answer. And once again it was the Quizknows who pulled out the win at the very last question. Congrats to all who play, and I look forward to seeing you all next week!
