There’s only a week left before Valentine’s Day, which means you’d better get to shopping! There are flowers to buy, reservations to be made, and boxes upon boxes of chocolates to stack high upon your paramour’s doorstep. Of course, none of that mattered to the throngs of trivia titans descending on Idle Hour this Tuesday night. They craved a different kind of romance. They desired…KING TRIVIA!
29 teams arrived fresh and ready for an epic show, and they brought their talent and
Round One was a challenge for many of our less chemically minded folks, but still ended with a 6-way tie at the top of the board. These teams were feeling the competitive energy and seemed ready for anything.
Round Two was all about the clock app, which threw some of our less-online teams for a loop. Fortunately, these celebrities had jumped into the mainstream, helping Geralt of Trivia jump into the lead!
Round Three had our teams grabbing gnarly waves and landscaping shaves. Geralt kept their lead, but Live, Laugh, Love took a chance to close to striking distance.
Round Four was a big win for fans of The Crown. Live, Laugh, Love took a step into first, and Morella Panthers climbed into second.
For our Valentine’s Day Round, we asked for the best (worst) puns for a holiday card. Kingbeez brought some old school wordplay (and some quality artwork) to take the win.
In the Drinking Round, we celebrated National Period Table Day with a question about oxides. While each team did their best to remember 5th grade chemistry, Live, Laugh, Love took the win and the free shots!
Round Five pushed our teams to think outside the box to find connections between some zany answers. Live, Laugh, Love kept their lead, but Panthers and Geralt tied in second with only a couple points keeping them from the top.
Rounds Six and Seven proved the biggest shockers of all. Doubles arrived with wild abandon, allowing some teams to rise while others fell. It was basically the first few seasons of Game of Thrones, with epic heroes battling for a single spot!
As the dust settled, we crowned our new champions: Geralt of Trivia, Ducks Unlimited, and Downtown Sasquatch!
