QUIZ RECAP

A rose by any other name might smell as sweet, but a trivia show that’s NOT King Trivia just can’t be as epic. Idle Hour was alive and kicking with quiztastic energy as we welcomed a slightly lower temperature into our humble, barrel-shaped home. With a lean 16 teams, we got down to quizness. 

Round One led to a strong opening start for Breakfast All Day, The Furious Jumpers, Drink-182, Quiz-ney princesses. But it was Montana in Round Two taking the early lead. They dropped down as Breakfast All Day caught a double in Round Three, only to see Montana out on top again at the end of the first half. It was a chaotic show so far, and still anyone’s game!

For our drinking round, we chose to honor International Cat Day buy having our teams name every jellical cat from the international hit CATS. Though they couldn’t name them all, the winner with most insane musical knowledge was Kingbeez. 

In the latter half of the game, a new challenger rose up from the middle. Furious Jumpers were in no mood for playing games (that didn’t involve winning). They through down double after double, leapfrogging the competition as they charged toward the lead. In the final round, it all came down…to a single point. 

 

We ended the night with a big win. Furious Jumpers, Montana, and Chonky!

INDIANA JONES THEMED EVENT AT IDLE HOUR RECAP

Wed Jul 26 2023

This quiz belongs in a museum…fit for KINGS! It’s an Indiana Jones themed trivia at Idle Hour, and 16 teams came out to play for big prizes. 

Round One led to a strong opening start for Top Menu Fortune & Glory, The Short Rounds

Round Two was a tricky bit of globetrotting, but Short Rounds took the lead with a big double. 

Round Three saw Short Rounds extending their lead with some expert knowledge of Indy’s friends and family, but that lead slipped to only a few points come Round Four. It was as tight a half as we’d seen in a while. 

Our Drinking Round asked our heroes to remember the scribes that brought these characters to life (and who were then properly credited). Fortune and Glory took the win and the free drinks. 

Those free shots inspired Fortune and Glory to push themselves to the next level, leaping up to second place with only a few points to spare. 

Round six was a game of quotes, and every team felt confident in their ability to recite the movies by heart. Henchmen sprinted past the competition into a strong third with Top Men now at second!

Round Seven came tumbling down like a giant boulder trap. With only eight correct answers, it would take a big win to unseat the leaders. 

 

We ended the night with a big win. Short Rounds, Henchmen, and Top Men!
