Welcome to the New Age… of Tuesday Trivia!

With six different venues each bringing in more than a dozen teams, Tuesday’s game of Pour House Trivia welcomed a massive crowd of 151 teams across 22 venues.


Tuesday’s game opened with a Three Clues question about the word ‘igloo’, followed by questions concerning the Pizza Hut Supreme Pizza, the DeLorean automotive company, and the recently unveiled Statue of Unity in India, which is now the tallest statue in the world.  This final query of the round also included a rather difficult bonus question, as only 11% of our teams also knew that a statue of Buddha is now the second tallest statue in the world.  As a result, only four teams earned a perfect first round score: Mud Duck Hunt Club (Champion), Thankful Dead (Locker Room), My Black Hole Just Exploded (Dudley’s), and Just Good Enough (Casa Rico).


Tuesday’s audio question featured three songs with the word “Dreams” in the title: “Get Out of My Dreams, Get Into My Car” by Billy Ocean, “Wildest Dreams” by Taylor Swift, and “River of Dreams” by Billy Joel.  We continued with questions concerning author Mark Twain, the recent HBO film “Deadwood: The Movie”, and the 1956 U.S. Presidential election, which featured the most recent re-match in a Presidential election.  With an easier trio of bonus questions, nine teams earned a perfect second round score.


Documentary films and U.S. city nicknames were the featured topics on Tuesday’s halftime page, which yielded six perfect scores and an overall average of 15.4 points.  These were your highest scoring Tuesday teams at the halftime break:


Tuesday’s second half opened with a three-part question regarding the use of the mythological winged horse Pegasus in brand logos.  We followed with a look at the Richter scale and the TV sitcom “How I Met Your Mother”, the latter of which included an incredibly difficult bonus question, as only five teams could name either one of the two creators of the show (Carter Bays or Craig Thomas).  After the third round concluded with a question concerning the Shakespearean play “The Merchant of Venice”, only two teams posted a perfect score of 36 points: Duchess (Shuckin’ Shack) and Dave Martinez School of Management (Tommy Joe’s).


Our final round began with two questions related to candy bars.  First up, most of our teams remembered the Kit Kat Club as the main setting for the Broadway musical “Cabaret”.  Next, we discussed the use of a Baby Ruth candy bar in a memorable scatological scene from the film “Caddyshack”.  Just as in the previous round, the third question included a wicked bonus question that kept most of the perfect scores of the board.  While most of our teams knew that the man known as the Duke of Wellington defeated Napoleon at the battle of Waterloo, only six teams knew that his real name was Arthur Wellesley.  The final round closed with a Triple 50/50 question about the relative size of Texas compared to other countries.  Balls Out (Quincy’s South) and Dave Martinez School of Management (Tommy Joe’s) recorded the only perfect scores in Tuesday’s final round.  Here is your pre-final leaderboard from Tuesday night:

TUESDAY’S FINAL QUESTION (73.4% success rate):

–> Releasing its debut album in 2012, which band claims that its name was coined by anagramming a certain phrase, but has never revealed what that phrase was, leaving fans to offer guesses such as “Ragged Insomnia”?

Nearly three-quarters of our teams responded correctly with Imagine Dragons.  With the final question falling on the easier side, eight teams earned the Perfect 21 on Tuesday by answering all wagering questions correctly.  These were your highest scoring teams at the close of Tuesday’s game:
