A brisk night in NoHo can mean temperatures as low as 40 degrees, with thunderous winds, icy asphalt, and food that sometimes arrives below the optimal temperature. However, even the depths of Fimbulwinter, nothing could keep the crowd away from Idle Hour for another epic, world-shaking round of King Trivia!

14 teams arrived in the barrel for some yuletide yaks and holiday hokum. With a bucket of chocolate standing by and DJ Pandora spinning the best tracks of the 80s, we go down to quizness. 

Round One was a solid warmup, with most teams absolutely crushing those gimme questions. It set up a massive tie at the top of the board to open our tournament of holiday heroes. 

Round Two saw our champions monkeying around with real and fictional primates. With a wild double and a bit of luck, We’re the Problem, It’s Us took the top spot and a sizable lead going into the theme round!

With Spice as the theme, Round Three was already hot before we even asked the first question. We’re the Problem kept their lead, but Mike Who Cheese Hairy stepped up into second with a wild series of guesses. 

Round Four kept things pretty close, as Intravenous DeMilo, Quiz Kid Donnie Smith, and Kingbeez locked into a tie for third. 

This led directly onto our drinking round, where self-described horse girls Kingbeez earned themselves some delicious free shots!

Round Five threw the entire game into a loop as Mike Who Cheese jumped into the top spot, with Intravenous DeMilo sneaking into second and knocking We’re the Problem into third! And with a massive tie in 4th place, this was quickly shaping up to be a scramble for the finish. 

Round Six not only pushed our players to the limit, but it taught them some new diction as well in the word Demonym! Let’s Get Quizzical rose to within 2 points of a spot on the board, kicking off the final round to end all final rounds. 

With the crown and glory on the line, our teams set out to determine the answers to the List Round, reciting the filmography of De Niro and Scorcecse. As the dust cleared, we announced our winners. 

Mike Who Cheese Hairy  took the top spot, followed by Intravenous DeMilo and We’re the Problem, It’s Us!
