    I never thought this day would come, but I finally found a subject that baffled the trivia masters at Brouwerij West: U2. Who would have thought that the announcement of 2 simple characters, a letter and a number could create such an uproar, but when I announced that round 7 was about naming U2 albums the effect on the crowd was striking. The teams that were leading the game began panicking, wishing they could call up Bono and ask for an assist. To be fair, there were a select few teams that did very well on Round 7, but as a whole, this was the most I've ever seen a crowd struggle with a round. When all was said and done this was my favorite round that King Trivia has ever done, not because I like U2, but because I loved all of the creative answers that people put when they didn't know what else to do. Here are some albums that people came up with:

    Now that's what I call U2

    Cool Shades Bono

    Proud Commie


    U2 can't believe it's album #14

    Chachi walked out of the shower to his dad crying to a U2 song when he was 10

    We had several teams who even had the same idea for an album:

    The one that iPhones downloaded

    Dumb iTunes Album

    That one I can't delete off my iPhone

    Forever in your iTunes

    Beer Gutz, the team that was in first place, literally just wrote me a note about how much they hated Bono instead of naming any albums. Amazingly, in spite of 0 points in the final round, Beer Gutz still landed in first place. What makes Beer Gutz accomplishment even more impressive is that it was a team of only two people. We had a tie for second place between Counter Intelligence and Pacific Coast Dog. Counter Intelligence won the tie breaker putting them in second and putting Pacific Coast Dog. In reality though, the competition was far less significant than the bonding that went on in Brouwerij West this week as teams united in a collective distaste for U2.
