- Wednesdays @ 7:00pm
As a big fan of this, the spookiest month of the year, your Quizmaster took the opportunity to bring each week's game in with a different haunting introduction. We had a bit from Thriller, the Haunted Mansion, the Monster Mash -- but what for All Hallows' Eve itself? Well, with a little push from Shakespeare, an original poem:
"Double, double toil and trouble;
Fire burn and brewery bubble.
Summon beer and ghostly band:
The quizzing hour is close at hand.
On this night of Halloween,
Better keep your senses keen.
If you make it through Round Five,
You might make it out alive.
The spooks may speak, the dead may walk
On Wednesday night at seven o'clock.
By these giant shiny drums,
Some King Trivia this way comes!"
And what a frightful night it was! Trivians dressed in all manner of ghoulish costumes, including our applause-o-meter contest winners: Carl and Russell from Up! Hope those pumpkin spice cupcakes were scary-delicious. Though many of our usual crowd were out conducting their dark celebrations elsewhere, we still had eleven teams for our terrifying Halloween game.
In the end, it was The Brewsual Suspects who took first with a big 83 points! They nabbed four doubles, including a Round 5 double that earned them 20 points. Next up was Cool Princess 500 with 66 points, also grabbing that Round 5 double! In third came newcomers Zombie Band with 64 total points! Their doubles in Rounds 2 and 5 got them right up near the top. Well done, all teams!
It was my wicked pleasure to spend the year's most chilling night in the company of Brouwerij West's (BOOwerij West?) dedicated trivians. Nowhere else I'd rather haunt.
