It was a full house this week at Bar Charlie! Seven teams stuck it out with some tough competition.
Round 1 had Riff Raff showing off their General Knowledge, starting off strong, while other teams with fewer people didn't have quite as much to show. Our two teams of two both had two points after one round.
The Picture Round this week had a little something for everyone, as long as you know your TV animals.
When Round 3 started and everyone heard the theme was Hawaii, people seemed to think it was going to be light and breezy. But when the questions came out, there was a definite shift. Apparently not everything about Hawaiian life is easy going.
During the Guess Who? round this week, I got more wrong answers than I have ever seen! But it was Love Pit who knew right off the bat that their Alabama roots were finally paying off (+10!), pushing them into the lead.
Round 5 was another game changer, where two teams decided to play Double-or-Nothing, but only one would succeed. Great job finding all the right answers and the connection - With 69 Points scored 20 more points this round, leap-frogging them to the top.
The Matching Round tested the teams on their British slang, which for the most part was successful. However the two most common mistakes went to "Bagsy" (calling dibs) and "Chuffed" (pleased). Looks like we could all use some brushing-up on our English. It's funny how two countries with the same language can get so confused with the meaning behind our words. This was another round where a handful of teams checked off the Double-or-Nothing box, but only Riff Raff made the cut.
It was a tight race at the top going into our final round, and a tough couple of questions. We had some great efforts put forth this round, and everyone had a great time. But at the end of the day, we needed to know who was going to win!
We had a great time with all the teams, OG Pets, Clerin, Electric Kittens, The Little Einsteins, and Love Pit. And a final score TIE between With 69 Points and Riff Raff had to be broken with one final question... "On November 9, 2017, Yuya Yamada broke the record for spinning the largest hula hoop. In feet and inches, what was the circumference of the hula hoop?" Neither team was that close to the actual answer, but all they had to do was be closer than the other team. And so, never one to let anyone slide by without a fight... the winner was Riff Raff! Maybe it was just wishful thinking with a name like With 69 Points, either way, it was so much fun having everyone there, and a ton of energy around the room made this one of the best trivia nights yet.
Let's see if we can top that next week! See you next Tuesday!!
