First night of League Play here at the Tam, and the story was one of returning regulars! I, humble Quizmaster Michael Miller, was delighted to see the return of Whoa Bundy!, a team who played with me years ago at the Eagle Rock Lounge. Tonight also featured the return of the Tam I Ams, a delightful group who honor their home of the Tam O'Shanter with their name and me with their presence.
While the match started without a single successful double in the first round, the scores quickly began to increase as we got underway. For the Drinking Round (which at Tam O'Shanter is generally a trivia-based challenge, both due to space constraints and me wishing to give the players what they want) teams were asked to name the 44 countries of the world that have a monarch as a head of state. The General Washingtons triumphed with 22 correct answers!
Though the Washingtons started the game with an unsuccessful double attempt, they carried on to come in second place for the night! Aggressive Foreplay, perennial contenders as well, took a strong third place though their faces said that they were hungrier for greater glory. Meanwhile The Mules, who have become a permanent fixture on Tuesday nights in the last year, went wire to wire as the high scoring victors! Well done teams, I salute your important trivial exploits, look forward to seeing you next week, and ask you to remember: don't worry about being pedantic on trivia night -- there's no better night for it!
