We Went Under the Sea for Some Weekend Trivia!
Last weekend featured our FINAL weekend games for 2016! What a great year it’s been for our weekend trivia players. We got a little ‘Wild’ with our audio clue, and even managed to squeeze in a few Christmas-themed questions. Some of our regular teams breezed through tonight’s set with relative ease.
WEEKEND STATS AND FACTS (17 teams across four venues):
–> Highest Overall Score: Give Us Your Beer Money (Pretzel and Pizza) with 176

(you’ll find the answers later in this blog)
Back again at Belles’ Sports Bar on a very slippery Saturday night, with a little bit of Pour House Trivia action! We did some rhyming, some holiday filming, and even examined a classic strategy game all in the first round. Round two followed up with some word and spelling play, and we did it all “Gangnam” style. We got to the “heart of the matter” in round three, and the final round featured a little “Boost” to you score if you knew the answer. Have yourself a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all as we won’t be back to play some PHT till January 7, 2017. Here are the results:
First Place: Uncle Jack
Second Place: Turd Ferguson
Third Place: Demented & Sad but Social
THERE IS NO TRIVIA AT BELLES’ FOR EACH OF THE NEXT TWO SATURDAYS. OUR NEXT GAME WILL BE JAN. 7th.
Next game’s first category: “Game of Thrones”
I had a great time filling for Jon tonight here in Hagerstown. The food is always great! It was a close game all night, but Give Us Your Beer Money took the lead and first place. Unfortunately, they were playing ‘over the limit’, so the first place prize went to Sanford and Son! Thanks again for the warm hospitality, and don’t forget about the upcoming changes to the schedule.
THERE IS NO TRIVIA AT PRETZEL & PIZZA CREATIONS FOR EACH OF THE NEXT TWO SATURDAYS. OUR NEXT GAME WILL BE JAN. 7th WITH A NEW START TIME OF 8:00pm.
Next game’s first category: Dogs
For our last game before the Christmas holiday we had *almost* all our regulars in the house, with one especially cute one all decked out in her holiday best (shoutout to baby Bailey!). We kicked off the questioning with our Winner’s Choice of The Settlers of Catan and wrapped Round 1 by taking a look Inside the Human Body. Round 2 began with a trio of Love Songs for your audio question and finished on a high note with a certain famous media figure.
When it came time for the Puzzle Pages I quizzed you on some album art and Presidential resumes, but alas, you were largely unfazed. Fast forward to the beginning of Round 3 where I threw you an artistic curveball and ended with the MLB. You all thought you had it in the bag when it came to the 6-4-2, but some were a little too quick on the draw for Pyramid. Diving into Round 4 with some Astrology put your calendar smarts to the test but I left you on a high note with some Cartoon Kids to end the round. Going into the final, Fisted Sister had the lead, but there was still a chance of another team stealing their spot… In the end, after a Behind the Scenes Star Wars question, our victors looked like this:
First Place: Fisted Sister
Second Place: Boh’s & Hoes
Third Place: What Else Could it Be?!?!
THERE IS NO TRIVIA AT CAPTAIN BENDERS NEXT WEEK. OUR NEXT GAME WILL BE NEW YEAR’S DAY!
Next game’s first category: “The Hateful 8”
Once our Sunday night game at The Beacon started, I had a pretty good idea who was going to walk away with the victory. In fact, their current streak may one day become legend! 3rd place went to Nobody Home, 2nd to I’m Just Making This Up As I Go Along, and adding another notch to their win streak belt was the Witiots!! We will be off for Christmas Day so we’ll ask their “Triple 50-50: Bert or Ernie” winners choice pick next year!! Happy Holidays to all and I’ll see you after the New Year!!
THERE IS NO TRIVIA AT THE BEACON NEXT WEEK.
