Valentine’s Day is for the lovers, but tonight it became a battlefield for the precocious paramours of questions and answers. That’s right, the monarch of mystery descended on Idle Hour for a special Love Day evening of KING TRIVIA!

25 teams gathered in couples, thruples, and groups so numerous they begot new terms of polyamory. Each arrived with only one goal in mind: Total Victory!

Round One warmed up their quizzical muscles with some easy questions (although we all learned something about the proper Greek name for Cupid). A massive tie left many wondering who could rise to the top of this trivia triangle. 

Round Two was a boon for our celebrity-aware crowd. However, no one was keen to drop another double, so we ended with a three-way tie: Ladies Who Lunch, It was the best of times, it was the worst of Tim, and Drunk in Public!

Round Three had us all singing “Baby Shark” (much to the chagrin of the staff). Best of Tim took the early lead and hoped to hold out through the rest of the show. 

Round Four seemed to be a gift to our Philosophy majors in the house, as Hooligans snuck in to grab the title away from Tim. 

For Valentine’s Day, we asked our teams to express a little self love and give us the best pickup line they would use…on themselves. Emergency Food delivered perhaps the strangest combination of confidence and prop work with, “What’s your sign? I’m a spicies.” And then they handed me a  cup of tobacco sauce. 

For our Drinking Round, we asked our teams which English poet is credited with inventing Valentine’s Day. English majors The Weiners had the answer in their back pocket and took the free shots!

Round Five had our teams stretching into position as they tried to find the connection between some rather odd answers. Best of Tim jumped back into the lead, with Drunk in Public only a point behind. 

Round Six proved that our teams watch a little too much celebrity gossip, but it meant that our leader board remained unchanged going into the final showdown. 

Round Seven proved one thing more than anything else: Some of our players are too young to know America’s sweetheart, Meg Ryan. They were throwing out movies that features any blonde actress. However, a few managed to eke out a point in the end. 

As the dust settled, we crowned our Valentine’s Day winners: Drunk in Public, It was the best of times, it was the worst of Tim, and The Hooligans!
