We had six great teams joining us for trivia this week for an evening of fun and smarts!
Round 1 had In Dead Last starting out in the lead (so much for the name) with 12 points right off the bat, and sadly Gassy Gary started out with a measly 1 point... and everyone got to hear how my elementary school math teacher used to use Arnold Schwarzenegger's voice when teaching about fractions.
Not to worry for poor Gassy Gary though, as after the Picture round (and a couple of challenges on my ruling for "2001" - remember Rule #3?), they made some headway by doubling down, along with NC (17), and Team 5-1-0.
The Theme round this week was Champions, which turned out to be difficult for most, except for the team with the most opposite name of the theme itself - In Dead Last did quite well on this round, scoring 5 points to everyone else's 3.
Round 4 was our Guess Who, and although I reminded them it could be a real or fictional person, some of the teams had a hard time coming up with this TV Mom character, with the Frankenstein hair style.
Round 5 can usually come together if you can figure out what the connection is to help fill in some of the gaps on questions that you might not otherwise know. This was the case here this week as well - or perhaps vice versa. The teams who got the connection, also did quite well on the rest of the round.
The Matching Round gave Where's Bob a little boost with their correct Double-or-Nothing for 20 points, but The Pretenders weren't so lucky, and lost out on their reach for a double down.
It came right down to the final round, but in the end it was Team 5-1-0 on top with 1st place, followed by In Dead Last in 2nd, and Gassy Gary in 3rd. Great showing by NC (17), Where's Bob, and The Pretenders, though! A little healthy competition is good for the soul, and a Bar Charlie cocktail sure doesn't hurt either 😉
Thank you all for coming out! See you next Tuesday!
