Parting is always such sweet sorrow. With the holidays approaching, tonight's Trivia Extravaganza was set to be the last one for Rasselbock before the New Year. That's what made it all the more special to see the return of so many champions.
Germans Love David Rasselbock, the reigning leaders of the restaurant, brought in new team members and a renewed energy for their triumphant homecoming. Likewise, the incomparable duo of Heroes of Canton arrived ready to fight for a spot on the leaderboard.
Round after round, quizzers new and old threw caution to the wind and fought for every hard-earned point. Doubles were downed, friendships were shattered, and teams left early to get home because they had work the next day and wanted to be "responsible."
As it was National Wright Brothers Day, we celebrated with an impromptu Paper Airplane Flight-Off. Newcomers Selke engineered a complex and unorthodox "flying donut" that outshone the competition by a mile, earning them the coveted potato pancakes.
In Round 5, Heroes of Canton leaped over the competition, rising three ranks into First Place. This put the returning champs on their heels, and David Rasselbock excels under pressure. In the final two rounds, they managed to draw even and finally overcome their competition with some handy video-game knowledge.
At the end of the contentious evening, David Rasselbock held the top spot, Heroes of Canton took second, and newcomers Koalabock earned their first win at third. We hope to see all these shining faces, new and old, in the New Year.
Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year to all of you, from the incredible Rasselbock family. We'll see you on Tuesday nights, 9PM, in 2020.
