Thursday Night Trivia Pointed You in the Right Direction!

Thursday night’s game of Pour House Trivia welcomed 113 teams across 15 venues:


Thursday’s opening round covered topics such as Central America, Hollandaise sauce, and this former HBO series:

Six Feet Under

With just nine teams able to remember that Fisher was the surname of the main characters on the show “Six Feet Under”, we saw just three teams sweep the first round with a perfect score: Brother of Menelaus (Fish Market), PC Principals (Fish Market), and Castle Greyskull (Quincy’s).


Thursday’s audio question featured fruity songs such as “Blueberry Hill” by Fats Domino, “I Heard It Through the Grapevine” by Marvin Gaye, and “Cherry Pie” by Warrant.  Later topics included the 2018 NBA playoffs, moths, and this film released 25 years ago:

Sandlot Movie Trivia

With few surprises in the second round, we saw a whopping 18 teams churn out perfect scores.


Thursday’s halftime page featured outdated sports logos and words that contain “MAY”.  Falling on the more difficult side, the overall average came in at just 13.8 points.  Though we saw several teams topping out at 19 points, there were no perfect scores during Thursday’s halftime round.  These were your top scores after the first half:


Thursday’s third round proved to be a series of land mines, as most of the field struggled to come up with two or three correct answers.  We began with this relatively straightforward query on The Periodic Table:

–>  Among the chemical elements with single-letter symbols, which one has the highest atomic number?

Only 22% of the field answered correctly with Uranium (and its atomic number 92).  We continued with a three-part question on advertising slogans of publications such as The Washington Post and Esquire.  The third round concluded with a look at this multi-talented alumnae of “American Idol”:


“Scorpion” star Katharine McPhee can also be seen in the current Broadway musical “Waitress”.  The third round yielded one perfect scores, as PC Principals (Fish Market) ran the table with 36 points.


We began Thursday’s final round by explaining to our teams that this used to be an actual national flag:


Later, we surprised many of our teams with this question on pants:–>  Thought to be derived from the Spanish word meaning ‘toasted’ as a reference to its most common color, what name is given to a cotton twill often used to make trousers?Sorry, but the word khaki is derived from Urdu, not Spanish, so we were looking for chino.  None of our Thursday teams managed to sweep the final round.  Here are your highest scores after the fourth round:

FINAL QUESTION (76.1% success rate):

–> In many hotels around the world, you may find a Qibla pointer, which is essentially a sticker in the shape of an arrow.  For your wager, to which city does this arrow point?

Just over three-quarters of our teams responded correctly with Mecca.  For the second week in a row, Brother of Menelaus was the only team to record the Perfect 21 on Thursday with correct answers on all wagering questions.  Here are your top overall scores:
