G’mar chatima tova! It’s Erev Yom Kippur, a time of atonement and judgement…and apparently TRIVIA! That’s right, Idle Hour was popping off as teams descended on our barrel-shaped temple to pay homage to the lord of lessons…King Trivia. 

20 teams arrived hungry for knowledge (and perhaps some of Idle Hour’s famous burgers) and the game soon began. With a light breeze breaking the “Fall” heat, the stage was set for an epic showdown. 

Round One was a shocker as only one team managed to snag all the answers and drop a double. Kingbeez started the show with a big lead, followed by Emergency Food: Monsters Unleashed. 

Round Two had our heroes searching through their memory banks for famous monsters. This was a little easier, maybe to lull our teams into a false sense of security. This led to a leaderboard shake up as Emergency Food took the top spot and a quartet of teams leapt ahead of Kingbeez!

Round Three focused on a collection of crimsons, and our teams did not disappoint in their ferocious answers. In another shock to the system, Mighty Mighty Puffins took over the first place position while Emergency Food and Set locked into a tie behind them. This leaderboard persisted through Round Four as well as too few teams knew the villain of Theranos (but had it been Thanos, they would have been all over it). 

For our drinking round, we celebrated National Cinnamon Bun Day by counting our calories. Emergency Food, with an impressive guess, earned the free shots and perhaps a little cinnamon treat of their own. 

Round Five had our champions thinking about money, but would that be too much of a distraction for them to stay on track? Puffins maintained their lead, followed by the rising tides of Hulk Hogan’s Pastamania and North X North East Coast!

Round Six kept things pretty simple for our teams as scores tightened and anxiety flared. Something Punny exercised their 1st amendment right to knocked North X out of third and took over the spot, leading to a bitter rivalry that would fuel the fires of the final round. 

In Round Seven, we asked our contestants to think about Britney, B***h. It was a musical malady that pushed their brains to the limit. It was going to be a photo finish to crown the winners!

As the dust cleared, we crowned our champions: Mighty Mighty Puffins, Hulk Hogan’s Pastamania, and (in a surprise return) Emergency Food: Monsters Unleashed.
