HARRY POTTER THEME QUIZ RECAP

Wed Sep 7 2022
| by Quizmaster Adam Korenman

Rush on down to Platform 9 3/4 because the train to Hogwarts is about to leave! That’s right, you muggles. It’s Harry Potter time here at Idle Hour, and 21 teams arrived to see if their house would win the day!

With the magic (and butterbeer) flowing free, we began our show. These Potterheads showed their true colors in Round One, throwing down some incredibly niche knowledge for this wizarding world. The Chosen One and 2 Hufflepuffs walk into a bar took an early lead. 

Round Two was more of a gut punch to our wonderful wizards, as quite a few double down…only to discover they had been bewitched by a trick question! The scores hardly moved, but Emergency Food: Prisoner of Appetizers leapt into third. 

Round Three proved another shocker…for the bottom of the leaderboard at least. The Hollywood Harpies flew up and snatched third place, though that didn’t immediately end the game and award 150 points like some kind of silly sport. 

Our Guess Who round caught a few teams off guard, and suddenly the game had its first solo lead: 2 Hufflepuffs walk into a bar! But could they hold their place?

In our drinking round, we challenged these mystical soothsayers to divine the total number of books sold in the HP series (and the worldwide gross of the first movie). After a tense tie-breaker, 2 Hufflepuffs earned free shots of Firewhiskey…but would it be enough to keep their winning streak alive?

Round Five saw Emergency Food reclaim their third place spot. In fact, they were clawing their way higher and higher toward that coveted champion spot!

Round Six challenged our heroes to remember the fates of the fallen throughout the series. While the top two held their ground, For Fawkes Sake rose from the ashes into third place, setting the room ablaze. It was all coming down to the final question. 

With their O.W.L’s completed, we were ready to crown our winners. In first place, 2 Hufflepuffs, a Ravenclaw and Slytherin walk into a bar, in second, The Chosen One (literally a single HP superfan), and For Fawkes Sake in third!

QUIZ RECAP

The heat might be breaking, but the intensity at Idle Hour knows no such limits. With the tables packed to the brim with eager champions, we set out on an adventure of trivial proportions. That’s right, it’s time for more King Trivia!

14 teams arrived in our barrel of fun for some incredible quizzical action, bolstered by soft pretzels and cold beers. After Round One, Here for the Host (#humblebrag) took the top spot, followed by Jackyboys and the veteran Snark Squad. 

Round Two challenged the teams to identify movies featuring prisons. However, our scores hardly changed as these cinephiles rocked this round to pieces. 

In our Theme Round, Snark Squad saw an opportunity for a clutch double and leapt into first place, followed by Jackyboys earning second in the Fourth Round. It was quickly becoming a game of musical chairs across our leaderboard. 

Our literature-themed Drinking Round took our competitors on a journey through their summer reading lists, but in the end it was Glonk Chomp taking home some free shots!

Round Five left Snark Squad holding their lead, but now second was locked in a 4-way tie with Jackyboys, Rock Lobster, Win or Booze, and Here for the Host!

In Round Six, with an amazing double up, Here for the Host leapt into first place and set up a possible win, but Snark Squad and Rock Lobster weren’t willing to sit by and let this happen unchallenged. 

As the final questions tumbled into place, we crowned our winners. Here for Host held the high score, but our leaderboard belonged to Snark Squad, Rock Lobster, and Win or Booze!

THE OFFICE THEMED EVENT VOL.1 RECAP

Wed Aug 31 2022

Fish your stapler out of the jello and harvest those mung beans inside your desk. It’s time for an extra special episode of The Office…trivia edition! That’s right, Dunder Mifflin. We’ve got seven rounds of pub trivia here at Idle Hour, and some amazing prizes to boot!

It was literally 100º, but that didn’t the dozens of Office fans that joined the fray to show off their knowledge of beets, boardrooms, and Battlestar Galactica. 22 teams wore their casual Friday attire and prepared to battle for glory the only way we know how…with QUIZZES!

Round One saw a small duo separate from the pack with a well-placed double down. Bippity Boppity Give Me the Zoppity and Sabre Sirens held the lead, followed by a somewhat cautious Somehow We Manage. What would happen next?

As it turns out, Sabre Sirens would stage a coup and jump into first place, knocking Bippity back to second. Somehow stayed in third, but only held their position by a few points. 

Rounds Three and Four passed with little fanfare, save Schrute Farms pushing Somehow back and securing third place. 

Our Drinking Round challenged the teams to determine just how many times Jim turned and mugged to camera across the ENTIRE series (653, if you’re curious). With the closest guess, Sabre Sirens earned the free shots, while 14-inch Plasma TVs earned stickers for a shockingly close second. 

Round Five proved a challenge even to these dedicated teams. Still, nothing would deter these paper pushers from their prizes. With a powerful surge (possibly from their free shots), Sabre Sirens leapt into first place, and Somehow We Manage returned to their home in third. 

Round Six pushed our teams to their limits. Bippity was hurting from their unseating and needed a big win, while Sirens were eager to just hold the lead as long as possible. Bippity not only reclaimed the throne, but Somehow We Manage emerged into second place! This was shaping up to be one for the record books. 

Round Seven was no joke, pushing even the most seasoned Office fans to the brink. Many left with their sense of self completely shattered, while others had their fandom rejuvenated. In the end, however, only three could be the big winners. 

With an amazing comeback, Somehow We Manage took the top spot, followed by Bippity Boppity Give Me the Zoppity and Sabre Sirens!

Come join us on Tuesday for a return to more trivia!
