Tis the season, ladies and gentlemen. The yuletide log is in the fire (metaphorically, we’re still under a burn advisory in LA), and the chestnuts were certainly roasting over the fire pit here at Idle Hour in NoHo! With the teams coming from all over to join the celebration, there was only one thing on everyone’s mind: KING TRIVIA!
24 teams rode in on sleds (driven by an entire manager of animals) to our barrel-shaped gingerbread house for a game of kings and jesters.
Round One presented many topical questions and current events, aiding our more “reality savvy” teams in taking an early lead. Nine teams tied for the top spot, meaning there was plenty of room for a shakeup as we sprinted toward the picture round.
Everyone loves a good TV round, which meant many teams were already feeling lucky going into Round Two. Banshees of Burbank and The Team Just Inside the Door took the tied lead, but the rest of the room was gaining ground quickly.
It took until Round Four for The Team Just Inside the Door to separate from the pack, but Banshees were close behind, with Tamale Dogs and Lewdicrous Mode nipping at their heels.
For our drinking round, we asked out teams to do a little inflation math on the first microwave oven. With a guess just a few dollars closer than their competitor, 720 of Emotion earned the free shots and felt a wind at their backs. Could they charge ever higher?
Round Five always challenges our players to think outside the box as they try to form connections between randomized answers. With the stakes growing ever higher, Banshees of Burbank pulled out all the stops to leap into second place! It was going to be a fight to the finish for these amazing champions!
Round Six was a musical mashup of those famous artists playing second fiddle to bigger stars. One team was tired of playing in second, so Banshees of Burbank jumped into the top spot with only one round to go!
The final round was a scrum for the ages, with all the theater nerds rising to the occasion for a miraculous rally. When the dust cleared, we crowned The Team Just Inside the Door as our grand winner, with Banshees of Burbank and Lewdicrous Mode on the board.
