What a fun night! We had a big crowd in the house, and a special guest on the mic for round 3, lots of energy, and a close game all the way to the end.
Round 1 started out with (newly named and sing-song voice requested) Lowered Expectay-ay-tions bursting out of the starting line with 14 points!
In Round 2, No Use For a Name made their name known, stepping out of the fray with 16 points, while Love Pit fell short of the Double-Down they strove for.
Round 3 was our special guest, test-host, Amelia. It was a tough round, but only one team knew Godzilla's arch enemy was King Ghidora, but they have No Use For a Name, so who's to say?
In Round 4, J. Lo showed they're more than just looks, by getting the Guess Who? answer after just 2 clues! Meanwhile, there were a few teams who guessed incorrectly, and another team still who decided it's best to sit it out for a zero than risk a wrong answer.
It wasn't until Round 5 that we saw what The Weather's Getting Better was made of. Unfortunately, they fell short of a perfect score by 1, so close!
In Round 6, we got to see which of the teams still watch music videos, matching the videos with the actor/cameo who appeared in them. Not an easy task.
The final round was where we really got to see the heat! The final question being, What are the 10 Great Plains states? Kudos out to The Weather's Getting Better, 6 Senses, and Whiskey Business for taking the leap and going Double-or-Nothing in this final dash to the finish. Unfortunately, none of these teams got all 10 states, so wound up at the bottom of the pack. But it was down to Hyperion Tempo and J. Lo who ended up in a tie for 3rd place, and we went into the tie-breaking question!
For the tie-breaker, it's just one "simple" question, and the team with the closest guess to the correct answer wins it. This week, it was Hyperion Tempo, stealing that 3rd place prize!!
The evening ended with our top 3 teams as: Lowered Expectay-ay-tions in 1st, No Use For a Name in 2nd, and Hyperion Tempo in 3rd*
Thank you all for coming out for a fun night of trivia! See you all next week 🙂
