What a fun night we had in the Pineapple Hill. 12 teams met for trivial fury, and the points tallied away with many teams attempting (but not all successfully achieving) double-downs in multiple rounds. About half of the teams doubled-down in round one, and half of those again would go on to place and win prizes- but we're getting ahead of ourselves.

Round 2 found our heroes a little gun-shy, but Double-downs ruled the game again in round 3, with only 3 teams abstaining.

Round 4 was the turning point for our game, with teams bleeding points in an effort to secure enough clues to take at least something away (those minus points are scary!).

The Drinking round was a fantabulous array of guesses (In Centimeters) of how tall Bruno Mars is. Most of the teams were unsure of at least one thing, either how tall Bruno Mars is, or how tall a centimeter is, with many guesses in the 500s (that's 5 meters tall or more). But there's always a winner, and winners get a round of drinks!

Hungry for a win, the Kid's Table and Tequila Mockingbirds successfully doubled down on a downright ugly round 5, but thankfully everyone at least got the connection (Hooray Saturday Morning Cartoons, sigh, it's sad those aren't really a thing anymore).

Things got real in rounds 6 and 7, most teams playing conservative and unsure of their answers, maybe still reeling from round 4, it was a fairly high scoring game over all, however, with the top 4 teams scoring over 60 points! There's only room for 3 on the podium to collect Gift Cards, however, and if you want to check on that, The Kids Table, Ovaltine Jenkins, and Tequila Mockingbirds can confirm, in descending order.
