How can you not get excited when 24 teams arrive into a barrel-shaped battlefield with quiz on their minds? It’s King Trivia at Idle Hour, the only place to go for the best show in NoHo.
The game began with a monster tie at the top of the board, and nearly 60% of all teams represented in that golden spot. That shrank slightly in Round Two as only six teams managed to guess all the pictures correctly: The Bugle, Quizzie McGuire, Drink-182, The Georgia 19, Full Send, Denim King Josh.
But then came the Denim King. A single former trivia host using all of his knowledge and experience to navigate the war zone that is the kingdom of trivia. We started to wonder if there really was a new king in town! His doubles jumped him higher and higher, with only a few teams keeping pace.
Rumpleforeskin managed to steal the show for a moment during the drinking round, edging out the crowd to win the coveted free shots. Sadly, those drinks wouldn’t give them the strength to best the competition.
Denim kept his lead in Round Five, but there is a saying in King Trivia: Doubles giveth…and Doubles taketh away. In Round Six, with a slip of the answer, Quizzy McGuire had the opening to take the lead. It was all down to the final round.
Now Bugle had kept up so far, falling behind in Round Five only to tie in Round Six. Round Seven could decide everything, depending on the doubles…but it ended in a tie! Quizzy could have taken it all, but chose the cautious path. Denim and Bugle faced off for the final showdown.
In a tie-breaker worthy of an entire Netflix special, Bugle took the final point and won the game.
We ended the night with Bugle, Denim King Josh, and Quizzy McGuire!
