Tuesday, Tuesday, Tuesday!
Tuesday had some heart breakers! Check out the recap here for all the teams who were ready for this battle and who was driven to drink!
A tough night of Trivia as our regular teams went back and forth with points keeping up with the tough trivia we had to offer! The last question meant everything and changed the game up completely-and Not So Little Women took first!
Tuesdays game at Zepheira Sports Bar Started off great for everyone. The scores were close and the top 3 were shuffling around by a point or two. Then round 3 and 4 happened and just crushed everyone! The questions were a LOT tougher in the second half and it seemed to come down to who got the least amount of questions wrong to decide our top 3 teams! With a very up and down game, Cato was 3rd, The Avengers took 2nd, and for a second week in a row, Sanford & Son were our 1st place winners!! They picked the show “Mike Tyson Mysteries” for next weeks winners choice, so study up and come out for some fun with us next Tuesday at Zepheira!! ~ Jon J
A tough night of trivia with a few particularly brutal questions – who would have guessed that a box of crayons could stump the field? And since when is “pine” a whole family of different trees? (It really is, though – Pinaceae!) Some teams decided to shift gears and play for laffs – no, Dustin Hoffman and Mark Wahlberg did not co-star in “Debbie Does Mahky Mahk”. The night was capped off with high drama at the finish — two teams that held 1st and 2nd place from the start both bet big and missed the Final, allowing these three to vault ahead into the winner’s circle:
Now that was one rollercoaster of a game here at Cugini’s in Poolesville, scores were up, down, and all over the place by the time it was said and done. It was a semi-precious metal that was the downfall of a lot of the contenders in the game. Here are the results:
Drunk N Disorderly in 1st
Team Janet in 2nd
WWBS in 3rd
Our first category for next week is “Netflix Original Programming” ~ Ronnie
Tonight’s game opened up with a question about the classic comedy Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, this time asking for the team that the Dolphins faced in the Super Bowl at the end of the film. A few teams did manage to get this one, which was the Philadelphia Eagles. I liked the crayon question in the first round too, as it asked for the four colors in the original 64-pack that are four letter names. Several teams got gray and blue, but gold and plum were a bit tougher, and nobody got all four correct.
The audio question for today asked for a word in common in three song titles. The word we were looking for was the word ‘Last’, which teams did pretty well on. Halftime asked teams to identify TV shows based on logos, and to match NCAA schools to the sport of which they are the reigning champions. In the second half we had a few tough questions between the botany and 3 clues/1 word questions. The botany question asked for the family for several types of trees, which is the pine family.
The 3 clues question had a case of everybody jumping the gun, going early on the first two clues , which were the name of a Disney animated character voiced by Kurt Russell, and a British slang term for a police officer. Everybody gave me Bobby, which IS slang term for sure, but isn’t a Kurt Russell voiced character. The answer was actually ‘copper’, which is the fox from ‘The Fox and the Hound’.
Tonight’s final question asked about Corporate Logos, asking for the company that has used the sculpture ‘The Spirit of Ecstasy’ for over 100 years. I was impressed by how many teams got the correct answer of Rolls Royce. Third place tonight went to The Patriotic Orioles, and second went to Black Steel. Taking the victory on the strength of a late surge, congrats goes to Fractured but Whole! Next week we open with a question about Restaurants of Downtown Frederick, so good luck! I’ll see you all then!
Until next time,
Another game is in the books, as more of those crucial Summer Fling points get handed out. We had some wandering Veteran team sightings, and more than a few stumpers this week!
First Place: FNQ
Highlights of the Night:
In “Were-These-Not-Giveaways?”: If Pet Sounds wasn’t a giveaway clue, Wouldn’t it Be Nice surely should have been; I dunno if I’d agree with the second best rock and roll album of all time, but that’s still certainly one of the most well known ones, and Wouldn’t it Be Nice is a classic! Come on people!
After a dicey final left the standings relatively unchanged, we had our podium.
In third place tonight, Axl’s Doghouse!
In second place tonight, Uncle Jack!
In first place tonight, Beer Pressure!
Great game everyone! Next week we’ll kick things off with a fun but morbid category: Triple 50/50 Celebrities: Dead or Alive! Get studying, and we’ll see you next time!
Every now and again we (unintentionally) toss out a set of trivia that leans on the easier side. Tuesday night’s trivia game WAS NOT ONE OF THOSE SETS!
Downright chaos my friends – in a good way. of course! But whew! That one had sweat beads on all of our noodles! And in spite of the fact that my dear friends of La La bar trivia night won’t hesitate to stink eye me and growl at me when it comes to the subtle nuances between conifers and Evergreens, I still love ya 🙂
What a night of trivia huh? That was a game for sure! The tough ones that come to mind:
- the aforementioned pine/ conifer/ evergreen fiasco! Oh yes…this was ON!
- wait…PINK was not chosen over PLUM in the Crayola 64 Box – I’m going to start a movement
- And that fina…whew…Rolls-Royce for the win!
Good games tonight y’all! With some strategic wagering and a dag on awesome finish we had TOP that looked like this:
And that my friends is a darn good game of trivia night in the books! Next week kick it off with NETFLIX SHOWS. Until then, have a great week and I will see you soon :0 DG
