16 October Trivia Rankings

October 17, 2019

Man, I love my Quizlings! You guys never cease to surprise me. Last week, we had a four-way tie for first; this week, we had a four-way tie for third place! Very close game, no matter how you slice it.

Remember: November is Newbvember! Bring a newbie to play our brand of triviawesomness and there could be prizes in store. Also, bonus hint: keep in mind any hall of fame that has nominees or inductees is fair game. (Personal note: the word and and an & mean the same thing.)

This week, we attended a mad tea party, celebrated women in Hollywood and roomed with Paddington. Also, there was this seasonal tune …

Where’d the people go? Seriously, a lot less Quizlings than last week. I have to assume we have a large Jewish contingent that was away atoning. G’mar Hatimah Tovah!

For those that were there – wow, a very close game and the second four-way tie for first place this year (perhaps, ever).

What’d we talk about? Some Down Under geography, some filthy rich US Americans and some burger chain role playing. And there was this seasonal song …

Another wonderful night of trivia! Thanks to all the Quizlings who came out to play.

August 28 Trivia Rankings

August 29, 2019

Another great week of trivia that, in all honesty, you should kick yourself if you missed. Seriously, we proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that our universe is nothing more than a simulation. Me, I enjoy being composed of nothing but ones and zeroes and, given the chance, will take the blue pill every freaking time.

Big Announcement! The Dog Days of Trivia continue through September. We will raffle off that DDOT gift basket on September 25th – the night we celebrate our tenth anniversary! You have to be present to win the basket but why would you want to miss the revels? Also, you can get extra raffle tickets all month long for any reason I’ve previously offered extra tickets this summer (check old posts and Twitter if you don’t recall).

This week, we were all about some Spider-Man foes, NFL retirees and Gopher State locales. Plus there was this time-traveling cola…

Rain, rain, go away … come again on Arbor Day. You know Arbor Day, right – the day all the ‘andsome sailors ‘ang out by the docks. Thanks to all the Quizlings who braved the damp conditions to play our brand of triviawesomeness. We’ll do it again next week as the Dog Days of Trivia continue. Donate to a certified 501 (c) animal charity, show me proof and you can get a raffle ticket for our end-of-summer drawing!

This week, we dealt in Harry Potter spoilers (Voldemort is his dad!), Tay Tay kitty names (Burn After Reading is a horrible name for a pet!) and Fresh Prince solo fare (keep the roof blazing!). Plus there was this not-totally-made-up TV series…

August 15, 2019

What a lovely evening for trivia. Despite the threat of rain, Quizlings flocked to Tomato Jake’s to try their skill at the coveted prize of a $50 gift card. It was  a close game but we eventually found our winnah!

Thanks to the Quizlings who brought dog and cat toys to donate to charity. They received raffle tickets for their generosity. Want your raffle ticket for our Dog Days of Trivia gift basket drawing? Bring a pooch to the patio or, next week, bring a donation to the Pet Food Pantry (nonperishable unopened bags/cans only, please). One ticket per Quizling per week.

This week, we talked about constellation twins, Dickens villains and impeachable prezes. Plus there was this PSA from the past…

And an insurance pitchman with wheels…
