The stars were shining bright tonight—hidden of course by the intense light pollution—as teams gathered in the barrel-shaped battlefield for some good ol’ fashioned trivia. Throngs of hungry competitors crowded the bar and cried out for questions, so this QM was only too happy to oblige.
Now this wasn’t just any normal night. This was a true fight to the finish. Our top spot changed hands (nearly) EVERY SINGLE ROUND! Only the best competitors come to Idle Hour, and this was a show for the ages.
Round One was an enormous 8-way tie, but it was only a matter of time.
Round Two was a big challenge for anyone born after 2000 (or that worked Saturday nights). Kingbeez took the lead by 2, followed by Benoit Blanc and Jellyfish Assassins.
Round Three tested our teams’ hiphop knowledge, and Here for the Host was ready to capitalize. They jumped into the top spot with Valley Girls.
Round Four was all about the queen P herself, Miss Piggy. Hooligans had Muppet fever and snagged their turn on the throne.
In our Drinking Round we honored National Milk Day with a question about the undisputed leaders in producing milk: Cows! Spunk and Tude were in the mood to win it, dude…so they earned the free shots!
Round Five was a challenging connection to find, but our teams had a secret: They were avid readers. Benoit Blanc took the lead, and with a few points too spare.
Round Six was a chance for our Saturday Morning crowd, and Benoit managed to hold on to their lead… but Finishing Pints was in a close second.
Round Seven was as controversial as they come, as we asked the NYT to talk about Chicago cuisine?
In the end, we crowned our winners: Finishing Pints, Benoit Blanc and the Disruptors, and the IQ’ties!
Come join us every Tuesday for more trivia action.
