January 16 Trivia Rankings

January 17, 2019

A tough week of trivia, Quizlings! Do not kick yourself over your scores because everyone had a down night. Interesting note: this week’s average score was 44.6875 compared to 58.26 last week and 52 for the week before. The pendulum swings back and forth and what seems hard one week may appear to be a cake walk the next. Be back next week for more triviawesomeness!

And remember: When (if) we top last year’s attendance record of 136 I will personally double the first prize that week! Also, when we hit our 500th game sometime this year, I will also double the top three prizes! Don’t miss a week of the fun.

This week, we flew Sandpiper Air, reintroduced iguanas to the Galapagos and got a new tattoo with Ariana Grande. And we got Girl Scout cookies. Plus there was this cinematic memory:

Now, check out this week’s team rankings. BONUS – I’ve ranked them the usual method and per capita, just for giggles. Very interesting results that way.
