The night after Halloween is always tricky. You’re tired from an epic party the evening before, you still have leftover makeup in the corners of your face, and your blood is still 90% sugar. Sounds like the perfect time for a little KING TRIVIA if you asked me!
22 teams wore their Tuesday best for the greatest show in all of NoHo. With seven rounds of intense trivia staring down at them like an angry boulder, they set out to prove they were the best in the land.
Round One was tougher than many were expecting, which led them to hold back on a double even though over ten teams had perfect scores. The four brave teams jumping to the lead were The Hooligans, Algorithm & Blues, Shrub, and Boats n Goats.
Round Two put our teams’ sleuthing skills to the test as they tried to guess the names of famous spokespeople. While most of the guesses were successful, only Algorithm & Blues had the nerve to double and they took a massive jump to the top of the board.
Rounds Three and Four saw Algorithm hold their lead, but Kingbeez and Quiz Kid Donnie Smith rocketed to a tie at second and third moments later! It was shaping up to be a tighter game than any had predicted.
For our Drinking Round, we celebrated National Author Day and had our teams give us 6-word stories Ala Hemingway. You can read them all below!
Warning. Low flying Owl. Lost Chihuahua.
Worst of Tim has no Tim.
The last human. The door knocked.
I woke up and chose violence.
They came, they saw, they conquered (they plagiarized).
Girls play alone, don’t know Himalayas.
Bald man, big voice, very attractive (QM’s obvious favorite).
Heidi Klum was a freaking worm!
Ambience is here, let’s drink beer. (Bonus points for rhyme)
Tainted dinner, perilous flow, not Shirley.
Trivia King chooses guitar losers team (a bit inside baseball)
Help, I’ve fallen and I can’t…
They came, they guessed, they won.
What is the point of today (existentially terrifying!)
Our winners, The Bugle, also had to break a tie by guessing the correct date from National Author’s Day, securing their free shots.
Round Five saw Quiz Kid Donnie Smith edge closer and closer to that top spot. It was growing into a slugfest!
Round Six was the great shakeup, as Hot Diggity Dog came out of nowhere to leap into first place, only one point away from Algorithm & Blues and just a few above Quiz Kid. Kingbeez slipped into fourth and needed a massive boost to get back into it.
Our final round was all about Tarantino, and there were a few fans in the house! Numerous teams got perfect scores…but only a few were brave enough to double.
Our winners were Hot Diggity Dog, Quiz Kid Donnie Smith, and Algorithm & Blues!
Come join us next Tuesday for more trivia action.
