Man, you all were working double-time tonight! Almost right after I finished asking the questions, teams were rushing up with answers in hand. Everything moved so quickly that we got done about twenty minutes earlier than normal. As always, we all had a good time, especially seeing a successful double with zero points on the Moon list; if you know you're getting zero, go for broke and double down! Hell, I might even quadruple that zero if I'm in a good mood.

When the dust settled, Lightning Dogs led the pack with 52, Dungeons & Flagons took second with 46, and Threat Level Midnight came in third with 44. Fifty dollars in gift cards were awarded, and the beer flowed like wine.

Bring friends next week so you can impress them with your outstanding trivia prowess. Next week, I'll be teaching you all how to make nuclear weapons out of common household items. Whats under YOUR sink? Release the doves.

You see what happens?! This is what happens, Larry! This is what happens when you meet a friend late for trivia! So much wow. Lots late. Many doges. Moar hoomans. Peoples in strange clothes.

What started out nice and cozy ended up as an all out battle. At the end of the night, we more than doubled in size! I let one team grow to 13 people by the time we finished. But, when it all came to a close, we had one team emerge victorious, have their prize snatched back because of a scoring error, and returned after a tiebreaker. Dungeons & Flagons once again rose to the top of the heap (bigger than the stack) to claim first place with 41 points and a tiebreaker win. "Liquor? I Hardly Know Her!" lost the tiebreaker but won the scoring challenge to get an extra point at the end of the night to take second place. How do you evenly divide $15 13 ways? Also, who was doing the math on my score sheet? Our home team and hosts, Team Stark brought home third place, giving their $10 gift card to The Transplants, who returned after a long hiatus.

Oh, yeah! It seems like y'all had fun with the Survey Slam round. Don't forget to head over and supply your own answers to the surveys Don't worry. We won't ask you personal questions like "How many pigeons do you own, and what do you use them for?" Thank you to our early attendees, especially those who took part in the costume contest. Brett got $25 in beer bucks for his Silent Bob! Subsidize your drinking. Come to trivia.

Come out next week. You never know who's going to show up. Stay safe, people.

On a slower night, competition got to be fierce. No one was wielding weapons or anything, but the battle for the top spot was definitely on. Four unsuccessful double attempts were joined by two that worked to change the game, and we even got to take it down to a tiebreaker to determine third place.

At the end of the night, Dungeons & Flagons came out on top with 58 points and a $25 gift card. Dorks & Dolls took second and a $15 gift card with 53. Third place was split at 42 between Zombie Tsunami and Tequila Mockingbird; it figures that the guy in the Sharks hat (Go, Kings!) would win the tiebreaker when it came to shark trivia. Zombie Tsunami edged out TM by being the closer answer by a single foot to take third and a $10 gift card.

Remember to bring out friend, enemies, coworkers, and family.


ALSO!!! Next week is Halloween! Come in costume and get happy hour prices all night!
