The rains brought all the trivia holdouts to the bar, and they were eager for a big show. Fortunately, they found themselves at Idle Hour with King Trivia, the best game in town! 27 of the meanest teams you ever did see slid into our barrel-shaped ballroom with money on their mind, and only seven rounds separated them from victory. 

Veterans and newbies alike launch an assault of answers as the show began, leading to a massive tie after Round One. However, by only Round Three, Quiz Kid Donnie Smith had taken a sizable lead. Behind them was a tie of biblical proportions trailing all the way to the center of the pack. 

During our Drinking Round, Noho It Alls took a big swing to guess the year for our This Day in History quiz, earning a free round of shots for their team. This energy boost…did not directly translate to their points, but was a victory nonetheless. 

Coming out of Round Five we had a sudden upset, as Camp Mohawk snuck away with the lead, followed by a trio of tied teams. This game was suddenly in anyone’s hands…but could they hold onto the ball? 

Round Six was another intense hustle, but Mohawk held their lead with Charleston Chiefs close behind. In fact, the first ten teams were only points apart as we closed in on the final question. 

With the last answers turned in, our champions emerged. Camp Mohawk took the top spot, Charlestown Chiefs in second, with Big Ronnie and the Chandliers in third!

As we near the end of March, only one championship bracket is on anyone’s mind: KING TRIVIA at Idle Hour! 

24 teams arrived in our barrel-shaped bar to throw down with the greatest trivia show in town. It was standing room only as this QM and DJ Pandora took the stage to start the game. 

As usual, we started with a tie that had nearly half the assembled teams fighting for the top spot. Cliques were made, alliances and betrayals abound, and only a rare few were ready to face the tribe at the elimination circle. Er…I mean one team miraculously took first place only two rounds in. My new dad is Pete might have secured an early lead…but could they hold it?

As it turns out…NO! Real Housewives of Noho snagged the lead the very next round. It became a back and forth that no one could break, and it only drove the teams beneath crazier. 

Since we all needed a quick break before launching into the back half, we took time to honor National AG Day for our Drinking Round. The QM tricked out a combine harvester on John Deere’s website and challenged the teams to price it out. With the closest guess, Big Ronnie and the Chandliers took the free shots, much to the chagrin of the assembled teams. 

Coming into the final stretch, we saw the crown trading hands once again. It was a real scrum between our top 10 teams. 

As we jumped past Round 5, Ace Tomato Company took a sudden and strong lead away from our tied competitors. It was truly anyone’s game. When Round 6 ended, the scores were nearly locked together. What would happen next?

As it turns out, A NEW LEADING TIE! Real Housewives and My new dad took the top spot away from Ace Tomato, leading to a final showdown in Round 7. This was as tense as we’ve ever seen things in Idle Hour. 

When the dust settled, we had a clear winner in the game: Real Housewives of Noho, My new dad is Pete, and Ace Tomato Company. 

Join us next Tuesday for more King Trivia action!

QUIZ RECAP

It was days before St. Paddy’s day, and all through the pub, not a question was asked, except by this Bub. That’s right…it was TRIVIA TIME! 22 teams joined us for an exception evening of guessing and gabbing, with an absolutely packed house starting the big holiday party early. 

Our first few rounds were marked by an intense, 6-way tie at the top of the board, however we found our leader by Round Three: There’s Something About Putin!

As the questions kept flying by, Putin and Real Housewives of Noho became our neck-and-neck leaders, fighting for every point they could. Though not on a breakaway, they managed to hold the top two spots all the way to Round Six!

During our Drinking Round, we challenged our teams to name the number of words in Shakespeare’s Julius Caeser. With the closest guess There’s Something About Putin took the shots as well! They were on a roll…but could they hold their lead?

As always, it came down to the final round to see who would win all the marbles (or, in this case, gift cards). The teams through out everything they had, left it all on the court, and another three or four metaphors for playing a mean game of trivia. But, alas, there can only be three winners. 

Our top spots went to There’s Something About Putin, Real Housewives of Noho, and a surprise third from Kingbeez!

Join us every Tuesday at 8pm for more King Trivia.
