King Trivia is a lot like the post office. Whether rain or shine, the show must go on. With Los Angeles getting all of its weather for the year out in one go, we threw up some umbrellas and got to work on the greatest game in the land. 

22 teams arrived in our barrel-shaped paradise for amazing food and better trivia with a QM that brings just as much energy as he does free candy. There’s only one way to find a winner, and that’s to play, so we got right down to quizness. 

Round One wasn’t too much of a stumper, but with a gang of mostly new teams there wren’t many willing to risk everything with a double. Ghosted by the Hostess, Here for Host, and Emergency Food: Carrot Cake of Sadness tied in first. 

Round Two really highlighted the quality disparity between the first and second Jurassic trilogies. Emergency Food certainly found a way to leap into first place and prepare for, what would become, a perfect sweep. 

Round Three became the beginning of a race for second and third, with Here for the Host claiming silver and Ghosted in bronze. 

Round Four shifted the lineup a bit as Breakfast All Day shot into third behind Here for the Host, but the scores were neck and neck all the way down to 12th place. 

Our Drinking Round honored National Fragrance Day as we asked our teams to determine the best and worst smells in the world. With a narrow victory, Bribed the Host (in name only) took the free shots!

Round Five was a theater nerd’s dream, and one team came to play. In fact, Emergency Food was the ONLY team to figure out the connection, giving them a clear lead heading into the finals. 

Round Six saw Breakfast knock Here for the Host out of the leaderboard, and Plague of Frogs jumped into a tie for third. After a tense seventh round and a quick tie-breaker, we had our crowns ready. 

Our winners for the night were Emergency Food: Carrot Cake of Sadness, Plague of Frogs, and Breakfast All Day!

Another rainy day, but there’s no need to stay home and binge the latest season of Guess Who Ate Sandra’s Shoe. Idle Hour has the setup to keep you dry, fed, hydrated, and FILLED WITH TRIVIA! That’s right, it’s Tuesday friends, and that means the king is in!

20 teams braved the foul weather to join us in glorious questionable combat. And with three prizes and a drinking round to award, this QM was about to make like the weather…and let it RAIN!

Round One was a simple affair for our practiced patrons, and we ended with the normal massive tie for the top spot. In fact, only two teams neglected to throw down a double.

Round Two was practically a nightmare for Quentin Tarantino: picture after picture of famous feet, but all clad in shoes! Panda Boots was the only team brave enough to double it up, and they took the top spot. 

Round Three put the luck of the Irish to the test. While Panda held their ground, 720 of Emotions and 80085 launched up to a closer second. 

Round Four saw our leaderboard lock into place. Panda Boots had first, 720 in second, and 80085 in third.

Drinking Round honored our national day of Pi, and it was Move Over Jay Z that took the free shots!

Round Five saw Jay Z step up to third place after locking down that connection. 720 slipped down into fourth and seemed to be out of the fight!

Round Six Ended with Panda on top and a FOUR-WAY TIE for second. 80085, Move over Jay Z it's Gay Z, Quiz-Team-A Aguilera, 720 of emotions. 

Round Seven was an epic finish, with teams throwing out monster doubles like there was no tomorrow.  

Our winners for the night were Panda Boots, , Move over Jay Z it's Gay Z, and 720 of emotions!

Clear skies and french fries brought out the crowds as King Trivia returned to the barrel-shaped battleground of Idle Hour for another epic event. Hot food and cold drinks fueled the throng of trivia titans for what would become a night to remember. 

32 teams crammed into the bar for the most epic game of pub trivia ever performed. With the bucket o’ candy primed and the QM properly caffeinated, it was time to start the show. 

Round One was an easy setup for most of our teams, but also separated the Wild Wendys from the Cautious Cathys. Doubling down is the name of the game, but with so many teams we ended up with a massive tie.

Round Two asked our teams to identify famous green celebrities, both real and fictions (okay, mostly fictional). After some classy doubles, we had a four-way tie at the top: Diana Spencer’s Gifts, 720 of emotions, We Cool, and Emergency Food: Cocaine Gummi Bears. 

Round Three was a theme that had our teams thinking about the mad science behind the produce section. Diana Spencer’s Gifts and Emergency Food locked into a heated tie at the top. 

Round Four saw Idle Sour take second, but could they maintain their position against such tough competition?

For the Drinking Round, we had a series of tougher and tougher questions about cereal (like you do).  Morella Panthers managed to knock out the other contenders and win the free shots. 

Round Five taught our teams not to mess with Texas. No change in scores, but 720 of Emotions and Snark Squad won “best wrong answers.”

Round Six put our teams to task for not knowing their WNBA teams, but it was Agents of the Zeitgeist that shook the court by taking the lead!

Round Seven was a nail biter, but we ended up with a clean line up of winners. 

When the dust settled, we crowned Agents of the Zeitgeist, Diana Spencer’s Gifts, and Idol Sour!
