Wednesday Trivia Took it There!
We made you stretch that brain of yours tonight! All of the possibilities, it’s all out on the table and up for grabs. There’s square thinking inside the box, and then there’s us. Did your favorite team survive the chopping block that was tonight’s second half?
WOW! We had 16 teams compete tonight here at Valley Grill in Middletown, and this game twisted and turned all over. Our fashion question stumped the entire location, and the final (and some strategic wagering) really flipped everything. Our first place team tonight jumped to that position from 10th! Remember that our next World Series season starts next Wednesday. Here are the results:
Book Club Babes in 1st
Stupid Sexy Flanders in 2nd
Fast Forward Not Available in 3rd
Our first category for next week is the TV series “Quantico” ~ Ronnie
We had a packed house at The Tavern for our Wednesday night game! Everyone came in to play, and we even had three first timer teams join the battle as well! The competition was fierce and even though the scores fluctuated throughout the game, the top 5 teams always stayed pretty close together with their scores. The Final question was the kicker though, and it did change some names and the order of our top 3! It feels weird to say, that moving down to 3rd was Moving Forward! They held 1st almost the entire game, but were burned by the final and finished 2nd, The Fantasy Fan Club! Being one of only 3 teams to answer the final correctly, they made the jump from 4th to 1st, Shart Attack!! They picked an Audio Triple 50-50 for next weeks winners choice, “Audio 50-50:Disney/Pixar or Dreamworks film”, so study up and come join the battle with us next Wednesday at The Tavern!! ~ Jon J
Tonight at Belles Bar I hosted as Sam trained, thanks to all the teams making my first time hosting a blast! I loved the 6-4-2 question. The first clue was I am a U.S. city. My orchestra provided the majority of the background music for the Disney film “Fantasia”. The second clue, My name is derived by combining two Greek words meaning ‘loving’ and ‘brother’. That was it, that was all it took! Philadelphia! At the end of the night we had a tie between Fred Durst’s Sex Hotline and A Crudley Drawn Penis going into the final with the top two teams wagering the same amount and both getting the question right but ultimately, after answering the closest to the square mileage of Texas Fredurst Sex Hotline for the Win! In third tonight we had Just good enough, second was A Crudely Drawn Penis. Next week we start with a Triple 50/50 Nintendo Or Sega Audio. Thanks to everyone coming out.
Till next time,
And then there were 8.
Second Place: LOWL
First Place: Chris Hipp (We Hate The Moops)
Season 13 venue champions and Summer Fling seventh place Biff-Slap continued their dominance, demonstrating it in a consistent (and quiet) fashion. Overall, the game was relatively uneventful, spare an Excel malfunction which caused a slight delay and required recalculating bonus questions. As it turned out, no one in the house proved a fashion maven — because everyone assumed it was Versace that had designed a transparent rain coat, rather than Prada. I still want to see on in action. 2nd lace went to Probes exploring your anus, and 3rd went to those Thinkers and Dreamers, getting themselves back in to that top 3! Next week you will start with Kill Bill Movies.
Nonetheless, this is the last time I’ll host (barring a substitution now & then) Bernie’s; I’m off to Virginia pastures where I’ll open a brand-new venue! Stop by Fireflies in Alexandria for a game, should you find yourself in that neck of the woods. I enjoyed my time and appreciate the kindness shown to me by all the veteran players.
Highlights of the Night:
In “I-Get-Banana-But-Why-Boat”: I never knew about the other title for Day-O. Mostly because I don’t remember there being mention of a Boat anywhere in the song, despite numerous Banana references. Clearly I was in the minority though, because plenty of teams picked up credit on this one! To me though, it’s always gonna be associated with Beetlejuice soooooo
In “Fourth-Quarter-Nose-Dives”: That said, operator can’t be blamed for the destructive final round of the game, with many teams not only dropping high wagers, but also their bonus categories! Made for quite the interesting finish!
After conjuring a quick tiebreaker for a couple of teams, we had our podium after a tricky final.
In third place, with a tough tiebreaker loss, Pop Vultures!
In second place, pulling out the tiebreaker win, Charlie’s Angels!
In first place, for two weeks in a row now, Don’t Piss Off the Faeries!
Great game everyone! Next week we’ll kick off the new season of Pour House Trivia with an MLB Teams question! Study up, and we’ll see you next time!
