Schilling Cider House came to play this week. This was the biggest turnout that King Trivia has seen at this relatively new venue so far, and our seven enthusiastic teams all faced a lofty challenge. Not only did we have some top talent playing the game, but these were some of the toughest questions that our regular players have come up against yet. Game on!
After some Round 1 General Knowledge and Round 2 Floral Album Covers, My Long Lost Appendix said "C.U. Later" to the other teams, leaving them in the dust after a gator-themed Round 3.
Round 4, usually a "Guess Who," changed course this week into a "Guess What!" This threw several of our teams off their game, as we only had one group brave enough to turn in an early response (and losing a point for the incorrect response). Our other 6 teams played it safe, with most teams guessing the musical "Oklahoma!" correctly just in time for the 2-point clue.
Round 6 saw our very first upset of the game. Sith Happens went from zero (points) to heroes, averaging out an early zero-point round with a successful double-or-nothing in Round 6 and snatching the lead away from fellow regulars My Long Lost Appendix.
Round 7 got real cheesy, with each team being asked to name the top ten most popular cheeses in the U.S. All teams performed very well, with one common error across each and every team-- American cheese was not on the list, proving that there is some justice in this cold, cruel world.
Our unanimous favorite for "best team name," Crouching Woman, Hidden Cucumber, pulled their own hiding act after Round 4, leaving runners-up A Team Has No Name to take the honorary third prize trophy. Sith Happens maintained their first place lead, with My Long Lost Appendix clocking in at second...proving that regulars really do have more fun.
It was another night full of lots of laughs, delicious cider, and just enough pedantry to keep things interesting. Thanks again to all of our players, both regulars and first timers. Hope to see you all back at Schilling Cider House, next Monday at 7pm!
