A relatively low-scoring night, but still a fun one! Welcome to trivia night at Slater's 50/50, where we learn such things as Ripley from the Alien franchise is not Han Solo nor is she Rambo, even though her Lego figure might be ambiguous.
Before the night began, I asked our newest team to keep their name at most PG-13 rated since we had kids around this evening. Aptly, they named themselves...PG-13. Touch?.
The most enjoyable rounds were the wishes/curses, where we all realized how crappy gypsies are in movies; the hidden theme round, since everyone who figured it out really enjoyed writing "BALLS!!!" as the themed answer; and the matching round, where everyone realized how much they hated DJ Khaled's "music".
Then people got creative with countries beginning with "E". From Last of the Avengers, we had the countries of East Land, East of Eden, and East Street Band. From PG-13, the amazing Elbow Island, a sanctuary for macaroni escaping persecution in the form of very hangry people.
When the dust had cleared, Mike Tyson's Speech School had once again claimed victory and their $30 Slater's gift cards! But there remained one more task: the tiebreaker. PG-13 guessed closes to the number of seconds in The Godfather: Part II, thus claiming second place in their first ever game! Sorry, Pear Tree, but due to Price is Right rules, your second place streak was broken...the good news is, third place was yours!
Shout out to Last of the Avengers, who barely weren't able to crack the Top 3 (stupid DJ Khaled...) but came out to play on their vacation from Fresno! Hope you all had a safe trip home!
Have a great week, everybody!
