Thursday Brought The Sass!

Like all good families, PHT can get some sass occasionally.. We give it, we take it and the world is a better place for it! Our teams threw some mental, verbal and physical elbows in tonight’s game, check out the recap here!

Quincy’s in Gaithersburg, Md 

Another night at Qunicy’s, another packed house with 13 teams ready to show off their brain power.  Many teams got off to a good start tonight, as we covered everything from Christopher Wren to Kelly Clarkson.  Our leaders in the season standings so far is Blue Collar, and they put on a steady performance once again, bolstered by two instances in which they were the only team to hit the two-point bonus.  A nice run through the second half cemented their lead, and a correct response on the final question sealed the deal.  We’ll be back next week with a question on Superman!  ~ Matt

Champion Billiards in Frederick, Md 

There were heels, singing, and no little amount of swaying tonight at Champions! I love it, we even had a little Minnie The Moocher going on! You just never know what’s going to bust out next, hopefully it’s not me ordering your answer to the drink question. Ha. That would have been awkward.

I do love our Thursday night teams, and we were blessed with some tasty new teams and a resurrection of some old friends- sorry, got stuck on that IZombie question.. Let’s just be short and sweet tonight, I had fun, you had fun, let’s do it again next week.

Top 3 were Vitrifiers in 3rd, Serenity Now in 2nd and Power Vac back on top in 1st. Next week we will start with Firefly! The only Firefly that counts! See you then!

Bunker’s in Leesburg, Va 

We had a new team join the fray down here at Bunker in Leesburg so welcome to Step Brothers, who did very well as a duo so great job. Uncle Jack came back to visit and did very well themselves btw.

Here are the results of the game:

Belmont Twerk Team in 1st

Uncle Jack in 2nd

Your Mom in 3rd

Our first category for next week is “Will Ferrell movies” ~ Ronnie

 

Blue Parrot in St. Pete’s Beach, Fl 

It was a fiercely competitive night. Team Quizknows had many teams nipping at the heel for them. At the end of the second round, all the teams were separated by no less than 3 points. It was a night where the Bonus Puzzle was crucial. Team Quizknows was able to use the Bonus Puzzle and finish rounds three and four strong heading into the final round. All in all, some of the other teams shied away from gambling their precious points and Quizknows reigned supreme.
Winner’s Choice: Once Upon A Time TV Show.

Main St. Oyster House in Bel Air, Md 

It was a great game at MainStreet- as always well played final questions change the outcome of the evening- In Bocca wagered well and stole first place from Clever team name – Boogie friends were happy to be there and took home the 3rd place prize. Next week we will be discussing Shakespeare taming of the shrew.

Fish Market in Alexandria, Va

We continued with Season 13 tonight, gaining a bit of momentum with a handful of new teams joining us tonight! Who would be crowned the champions tonight, a title they could hold for at least another week? We’d find out after 20 questions and a whole lot of head-bashing! That was meant to infer competition, not a concert!
Tonight was a fairly lax game going into the second half. We had a distinct leader but for the most part all of our teams were pretty close. The second half is where most of the action was happening, and it singled out one team. Not in a bad way necessarily. At least 3 times we had only ONE team pick up and extra 2 points on any given question. Every time that single team was Ant Farm Keyboard, who just shot away with it near the end, picking up all the points they needed to sit all by themselves in first place, a position they held on to while going into the final question!
Before we get into the final, we’re gonna talk about our Question of the Night, a question that I promised you all I would bring up. So, it’s no secret that at Pour House Trivia, our writing staff consists of a varied range of writers to make sure we get the most diverse question sets we can. Sometimes we get a question that you had to be alive in 1972 to get it right. Well, at Fish Market, these questions KILL US EVERY TIME because me and most of the crowd are just kids! Most of us were born in the late 70s into the 80s! It was no bueno for us tonight 🙁
Going into the final Ant Farm Keyboard held a lead, a fairly big one BUT it was NOT a runaway because You’re Killing Me Smalls was within range to catch them if they slipped up! Well, that wouldn’t be Ant Farm Keyboard’s style to slip up because they not only got the final correct but were the first ones to hand it in! Took them about 20 seconds, I assume to figure out which of them was gonna bring the answer up to me! Good game guys! Second place Drinking While Thinking, a triumphant return for them after being gone for a bit. Rounding it out in 3rd was You’re Killing Me Smalls!
We’re back in a week! See ya then!
1st Place:     Ant Farm Keyboard
2nd Place:    Drinking While Thinking

Guido’s in Frederick, Md 

Scott says he loves you, and that next week John will be back for a first category of Body Fluids.. That’s a grab bag, of course it is.
