What a great venue debut. Back Door Bakery & Cafe is a perfect place for King Trivia. A quaint location that easily accommodated 9 teams and could squeeze in a few more. The staff is awesome and the patrons were totally game for whatever this was I was bringing them. Thanks to the 3 veteran teams that helped initiate this crowd.
We got off to a slow start as everyone got the feel of it, but soon it revved up into a solid competition.
Things stayed pretty tight through the first 4 rounds, until successful doubles for Back in Five and He Literally Can't Even gave them some breathing room, while Electric Ghosts used their double to get into the game. Those would be the last doubles until a shocker in round 7.
Five slowly stretched their lead, going into round 7 fairly comfortable.
Can't Even also held pat going into 7.
HodgePodge toiled in the middle of the pack for most of the game. A failed double in round 5 certainly didn't help their cause. In fact, they were sitting in 8th place after round 6. However, a successful double in round 7 vaulted them into 3rd place.
Can't Even maintained their pace and finished in 2nd, while Five had the only other succesful double in 7, launching them to a 20-point victory.
All in all, this was a great game, introducing many newcomers to King Trivia. Now that the cat's out of the bag in Sunland, I expect the place to really be rocking every Wednesday night at 6:30. Congrats to Back in Five, on the huge win, and to The Back Door Bakery for joining the craziness.
