'Twas a dark and cold night in Southern California (so warm and brisk for the rest of the country), so the nearby trivia fans flocked to Slater's 50/50 for some beers, burgers, and eventual brain farts...but also a fun evening with a great turnout!
Throughout the night I was corrected on two teams' pronunciations. First, Barley Knowledgeable I was pronouncing as barely knowledgeable...which can be seen as an insult. And Mike Tyson's Speech School required the use of his famous lisp...so I happily obliged.
The first two rounds kept everyone fairly even, except for the fact that multiple teams included Game of Thrones as one of their answers for the dragons despite it not being a film. I know it's HBO, guys, but learn the difference! Haha, maybe I was just excited that I knew the one from Eragon despite the fact that most of the book fans pretend that movie doesn't exist.
But I digress...Round 4 was a tour de force tonight with not one, not two, but three 10-point answers! I hardly get one, so this was amazing! And not a single team got less than 6 points on this round, so clearly they all know their Drake. He would be so proud.
Struggling a little further back, 905th Place Last Season made up a ton of ground in Round 5 with nine correct answers! They only missed Sky News, so apparently they need to watch more British journalism. And shout out to My Couch Pulls Out, But I Don't for guessing the theme was "water"...which is blue, so close but no cigar.
In the end, the dust settled and Mike Tyson's Speech School took home the top prize for the second week in a row! Rounding out our top 3 were 905th Place Last Season and OC Ladies. Congratulations to everyone who played and thanks for playing! Now go home and play some Clue to brush up on those room names. None of us may live in mansions, so we don't just have a Billiard Room, but we can dream, right?
See you all next week!
