Trivia was Tops this Weekend!

 

Belles’ in Frederick, Md

Over thinking can kill a team faster than a cyanide cocktail! Even when you think you’ve got it, that final can turn everything topsy turvey and that’s what we had tonight. Turd Ferguson was leading going in to the final but a miss on the sea and it opened up the chance for quite a few of our teams to have a crack at the big golden ring of 1st.

At the top of our podium there can only be one team and it was the duo of full Frontal Nerdity! Nice pull! 2nd went to Swipe left for a better team name while Simple Minds and Uncle Jack battled it out in a 3rd place tie breaker with Uncle Jack rising above the masses for that last place on the podium. Next week you will have Ronnie back and will start with Hannah Barbara!

Pizza and Pretzel Creations in Hagerstown, Md

Our Saturday night game at Pretzel & Pizza Creations in Hagerstown was a good one! Our top teams kept close with other score-wise throughout the whole game for the most part, but once the final question was reached, one team chose to gamble and it cost them! moving up to 3rd place was one of my regular teams from another venue who came by to visit me tonight, Sanford & Son! Finishing in 2nd place tonight was the always competitive Danny Glover! And taking the 1st place win for a second week in a row was the Off Beats!! For their next winners choice category, “World War !” will start off next weeks game, so study up and stop in for a FUN game this Saturday at Pretzel & Pizza Creations!!  ~  Jon J

Cpt. Benders in Sharpsburg, Md

We had a full(er) house this weekend at Cap’n B’s with of our regulars back in action (WASSUP 404!) We of course started out with our highly-anticipated Gilmore Girls Winner’s Choice question, and had a positively SCRUMPTIOUS audio question to start Round 2. I asked you to stretch your minds a little farther than usual on the puzzle page where we combined celebrities and the periodic table of elements… no perfect scores but Boh’s & Hoes came closest! Then in Round 3 I tried to bring out your inner band geek—and it worked! You guys rocked that musical instruments question. Then wrapping things up in Round 4, we had our obligatory Olympics question, which also challenged your alphabetical prowess. But of course, in the end, it was still anybody’s game, and with some strategic wagers in the mix, I was definitely on the edge of my seat. Drumroll please………
The Standings:
1. Boh’s & Hoes
2. Dave’s Not Here
3. 404: Answer Not Found
So what did Boh’s & Hoes choose for their Winner’s Choice First Category next week? 2016 NFL Hall of Fame Class
Enjoy your studying and I’ll see you next Sunday! -Torie

The Beacon in Frederick, Md

We had a really good battle for 1st place between 2 teams at our Sunday night game at The Beacon! One team was leading for over half the game, but their lead kept decreasing a couple of points after each round. Then they missed the question that they confidently wagered 9 on, so I thought for sure it was over for them as the the other team cruised into the 1st place spot. But you’d think by now I should know to NEVER count the Witiots out! They ended up being the only team to answer the final correctly so we ended with 3rd place going to the Survivors! With a great comeback but a tough beat to finish in 2nd was Hot Shame, and with a GREAT last minute come from behind finish, 1st place once again belonged to the Witiots!! Their next triple 50-50 flavor as W.C. is “Triple 50-50: Is the Town Inside or Outside the D.C. Beltway”! So study up and come join us next Sunday at The Beacon!!   ~  Jon J
