Wednesday Trivia Warriors!
This week is all about sharpening those reaction times, and keeping those brain cells warmed up so there can be some serious smack down activity on Saturday at the World Series! Check out the recaps here, and remember Season XIII starts next week so get those new team names on lock down.
Hard Times in Arlington, Va
We are less than one week from the World Series of Pour House Trivia, and our regular teams were gearing up with a slightly harder than usual set of questions tonight. One team that was not phased by the increased difficulty level was the Rocket Surgeons, who rolled through four rounds with relative ease, and held an insurmountable 20-point lead before the final question was even asked. After earning their first win of the season last week, they backed it up with another tonight! Perfect timing for the BIG GAME on Saturday.
Season XIII starts next week with a question on the U.S. Bill of Rights! See you then! ~ Matt
We had a hell of a game tonight, and man was that 4th round a brutal one! Thanks again to the fine folks at Valley Grill for coming out for a standing room only game! Good luck at the World Series, I will see you all there.
Here are the results of tonight’s game, and remember Season 13 starts next week.
Fat Kids are Hard to Kidnap in 1st
Dairy Queen Sure in 2nd
Southpaw Fish in 3rd
Our first category for next week is, and I quote; “A really hard Seinfeld question.” ~ Ronnie
Highlights of the Night:
We had a pretty fun game with a great final question shake up at The Tavern last night! Objectively speaking, the second half of the game seemed really tough with some of questions being so hard, but it made for some exciting up and down between teams who were all doing a lot of back and forth for the top 3 spots! After the final question, the final switching in the top 3 ended with this… Moving up to 3rd was Moving Forward! (how appropriate) Dropping down to 2nd was Schweddy Balls, and Making the move into 1st after the final was Olney the Lonely!! They picked the show “Grey’s Anatomy” for the first category of Season 13 so study up and GOOD LUCK to all my teams representing at the World Series this Saturday!! I’ll see everyone next Wednesday at The Tavern!! ~ Jon J
Tonight’s game opened up with a question about the movie “Frozen”, which I can only assume was picked because of the blizzard that hit us recently. The question asked about Olaf’s backup dancers during his song about Summer, which were seagulls. However, the toughest question of the night was about a different animated film, this time asking about The Secret of NIMH. Turns out only two teams got it at all the venues tonight, which is the mark of a truly difficult question.
So it’s only porn if she’s wearing shoes? If it’s french it’s an art film? Can I discuss these things? You want your new team name to be WHAT?! These are the pressing questions that were thrown around before we even got the game started tonight! Add in some B.O.B earth theory discussion, a delicious grilled ham and cheese sandwich, and farm animal discussion- you may be ready to ask the first question. I enjoyed the throwback to our indepth discussion on Santa’s dirty body parts.. Wednesday nights are a lot of things at Belles, but they are not boring.
Some scorchers tonight, if you wanted the top spot tonight you were going to have to work for it! Everyone was upset over the Nihm question, but at least you are in good company. Almost no team in the PHT nation got that question right tonight. I successfully distracted you all with the list of words that apparently I say funny. I think you all just had too many of those craft beer flights. What the hell if Self America anyway? We also learned tonight that they Bengals are in fact an actual NFL team, so that’s cool.
The final was a good one tonight with only a couple teams having the slightest idea of the correct answer. In 3rd it was Constantly Changing Team Name (Which may or may not change for Season 13?) 2nd went to B.O.B’s Earthly Hypothesis and 1st went to the squirrely crew over at Col. Angus. Good Game! Next week we will start with the Walking Dead.
We have a few teams who are joining forces on saturday, I am excited to see what you all can do up against every other night of the week. I know one thing- No one, and I mean No one will be having more fun. Remember the straw story! ~Samantha
Memories in Mt. Airy, Md
As we shook the frost off for an exciting pre-season game, there was an electricity in the air, as teams prepared for Saturday’s World Series XII. It was a very close game, with a few surprise finishes along the way!!
Packed house for trivia night at Barefoot Bernies Wednesday night! 11 teams squared up at our favorite Wednesday night trivia bar in Hagerstown, MD for what proved to be a stellar Pre-Season 13 session, albeit a tough one for sure! There were nasty little devils of trivia questions lurking in Wednesday’s set! A few noteable nasties were:
Thanks for coming out to Pre-Season 13 Opening Night everyone! Next week we kick off Season 13 in Barefoot Bernies style! Hope to see you there. First category will be “British Slang.”
