The scoreboard changed a number of times; early leaders Mess and Jegg had to fight to hold their position against the charging Movin’ On Up, while last season’s house champs, newly christened as Liquor? We Hardly Know Her! fought tooth and nail against traveling team Sic Semper Tyrannis.
Points of contention from the teams during the night:
Sports video games barely count as video games.
Hulk Hogan certainly does NOT know best.
Apparently when I am not hosting, I moonlight as king of the faeries, Not sure how I feel about that one…
But when all was said and done, only one team got the final correct causing a final scoreboard shakeup. The way it went down is this!
In third place, snagging the correct answer and a spot in the top three, was Sic Semper Tyrannis! Way to bounce back from some tough rounds guys!
In second, holding the lead for so long during the night, but losing it at the last second, came Mess and Jegg! Close game guys, well played!
And taking first by 1 solitary point, the troublemakers over at Movin On Up. With a 2 week old baby in tow, no less! Congratulations on the win, and on such a mellow newborn! She didn’t make a peep all night, even though you all certainly did!
Movin On Up has chosen one of my favorite party games as their bonus category for next week: Cards Against Humanity! If you don’t know what it is, think Apples to Apples for adults. Or crazy people. Trust me though, it’s fun.
See you next week guys! Until then,
The Olney Tavern – Olney, MD
It took us a few weeks, but I think we’ve finally taught our friends from #Dumbasses the finer points of Last Word/First Word! Congrats to them on nailing that, and their early run tonight.
Unfortunately, an early run sometimes leads to a late fade, and that bug bit the #Dumbasses, who fell to third on the final leaderboard.
Taking second home was Only The Lonely!
And the winners, for the third week in a row, though only by a single point were I Just Quizzed in my Pants!
They chose, after a last minute switch, song lyrics from the 2000s! Get out that not-so-oldies station, and pump up the jams!
The Sumemr Fling season is rolling right along in Old Town Alexandria, and after a close game all evening, it was Wee Baby Seamus who was able to come from behind to win the game after they were one of thew few teams to hit the final quesstion. A conservative wager salvaged second place for Trivia Newton John, while It’s OK if Uruguay jumped a few spots by also getting the final question. Next week begins with a question on Heavy Metal Deaths. ~ Matt
Valley Grill – Middletown, MD
We stayed inside for tonight’s bar trivia due to the wet weather and as always we had a blast at Valley Grill!
Fat Kids are Hard to Kidnap was our winners tonight after nailing the final for the win! Southpaw Fish took 2nd, and FNQ finished in 3rd.
Join me again next week, where our first category will be TREES. I guess we’ll be strolling through the forest for research.
