Your Recap for THE Monday Night Trivia!

Monday’s game of Pour House Trivia welcomed 78 teams across nine venues:


Opening round topics included the novel “Pride and Prejudice”, the public service programs implemented by U.S. First Ladies, and the east coast tourist destination referenced on this bumper sticker:


Eleven teams rolled through the first round with a perfect score of 36 points.


Monday’s audio question featured the songs “Yesterday” by The Beatles, “Today” by Smashing Pumpkins, and “Tomorrow” by Silverchair.  We followed with the most difficult wagering question of the first half:

–> Randy Johnson, Mark McGwire, and Barry Zito are among the MLB stars that played at which west coast university that holds an NCAA record with 12 Division I national championships?

Only 37% of our teams answered correctly with the University of Southern California:

Randy Johnson

After closing the round with questions on spoof films and the inventions of King Gillette, only two teams earned perfect second round scores: Kitten Mittens (Cheesetique) and Anti-Hentai Hentai Club (Il Forno).


Numerical literary titles were featured on Monday’s halftime page, which yielded an overall average score of 15.8 points.  Seven teams ran the table with a perfect score.  Here are Monday’s top scores at the halftime break:


Monday’s third round featured topics such as the pterodactyl, the John F. Kennedy White House, and the film directors who have collaborated of Tom Hanks.  We also included our Three Clues question, which focuses on a TV game show:

CLUE 1: Last month, it was announced that this game show will be revived by CNBC.

CLUE 2: Meghan Markle appeared on 34 episodes of this series.

Nearly half of our teams earned two bonus points by remembering that Meghan was one of the “briefcase girls” on “Deal or No Deal”:


Once again, only two teams swept the third round on Monday night: Merciless Peppers of Quetzalacatenango (Il Forno) and Killer Snails (Hershey’s).


Monday’s final round opened with a question regarding the Alexander Pope quote “to err is human; to forgive, divine”, which was fitting as the follow-up question saw many teams err:

–> The lead single off of the 1997 album “OK Computer”, which Radiohead song takes its two-word name from a character in “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” series?

Only 29% of the field earned points here with the correct answer of “Paranoid Android”.  We closed the game with a three-part question on “Lonely” phrases, which included a look at this trio:

Lonely Island Trivia

The final round featured yet another perfect score from Merciless Peppers of Quetzalacatenango (Il Forno), who closed the final round just one point off of a perfect game.  Here are Monday’s top scores heading into the final question:

MONDAY’S FINAL QUESTION (41.2% success rate):

–> Among the U.S. states which share a land or water border with Canada, which one extends the farthest south?

If you head due south from Ontario’s Point Pelee, the southernmost point of mainland Canada, you’ll cross Lake Erie and enter Ohio, which happens to be the correct answer to this question.  Congratulations I Don’t Know Who (Morgan Inn), who notched the only Perfect 21 on Monday thanks to correct answers on all wagering questions.  These were your highest scoring teams from Monday night:
