Trivia Rankings: 15 January 2020

January 16, 2020

You Quizlings continue to impress me with your high scores and all. Seriously. Another week where 75% of the scores are 60 points or higher. I refuse to intentionally make the questions harder overall but I may have to be a little choosier in the coming weeks just to keep you on your toes.

This week, we listened to some kissable music, messed with Sasquatch and lit up a New Jersey street. Plus there was this viral moment of the week…

Now check out the scores. Again. Very nice. I’m like a proud papa.

Trivia Rankings: 8 January 2020

January 9, 2020

Another great night of trivia! I tell ya, Quizlings – 2020 is off to a grand start. Some very high scores overall (and a very close match) so I think everyone’s upped their game for the new decade.

I will note some regulars charged me with being a bit contrite this week. Sure, I cop to it. I hate to think any question I wrote is confusing or misleading and I will apologize eight ways to Sunday if I feel anyone has perceived such an occurrence. Personally, I’ve always felt saying “sorry” loses you no face or cool points. Moreover, my intent is for everyone to have loads of fun and if any team feels sour about my questions or rulings then I am honestly very humbly remorseful. Keep me honest and keep those suggestions and constructive criticism coming.

This week we said “Aaaay!” to Henry Winkler’s resume, enjoyed some stately music and defined exactly why Pluto can suck it. Plus … ah, just say, “Maclunkey!”

Now check out the scores for this week. We’ll see you in sebben, Quizlings!

Now, that’s what I call a pre-Yule, pre-Chanukah, pre-Solstice, pre-Kwanzaa, end-of-the-year, end-of-the-deacade trivia blowout! Thanks to all you Quizlings for coming out to play with us. It truly is appreciated. Remember: No trivia next week but join us on January 1st, 2020, for our New Year’s Day Triviaganza featuring our New Year’s Raffle! Raffle tickets are still yours to be had if you bring yourself and an extra if you bring a newbie. See you next year/decade!

This week, we looked back on the 2010s, celebrated some Tar Heel tunesmiths and raced to the South Pole. Plus there was this unique Welsh tradition…

Now check out the rankings for the week. See you in 2020, Quizlings! (more…)

Trivia Rankings: 11 December 2019

December 12, 2019

Thanks to the Quizlings who made it out to play this week. A lower turnout, to be sure, but it’s the holiday season. People are out and about, dealing with holiday things that people do. Plus there’s exams and travel and, frankly, I’m surprised I made it out. Bottom line: I missed some regulars. Happy holidays and hope to see you soon.

The raffle tickets continue to be dispensed. Next week, wear an ugly holiday sweater, get an extra ticket. Bring a newbie, get an extra ticket. Draw me a picture of the War on Christmas, get an extra ticket (I get to keep the picture BTW). The New Year’s Raffle will happen on January 1st (we’re off on Christmas Day; already Fandangoed our tickets to see “Cats”). Getcher raffle tickets on 12/18 and 01/01! Must be present to win. All rights reserved. Trivia may be made in a factory that processes tree nuts.

This week, we gave shout outs to some rock and roll music, Dickens closing lines and cows that cause catastrophes. Plus there was this woke holiday classic…

Now let’s see how the teams stacked up this week. Hey, look at that! May I point out that 75% of the teams got a score of 60 points or higher? That is impressive, Quizlings!

December 5, 2019

Thanks to those who made it out to play on this fine December night. It was a light turnout, to be sure, but the competition was fierce and it was an extremely close game.

Remember to get a raffle ticket every Wednesday this month (except 12/25) and on January 1st when we will hold our New Year’s Raffle (must be present to win)! Get an extra ticket for bringing a newbie! Get an extra ticket for wearing an ugly holiday sweater (keeping in mind that beauty is, of course, in the eye of the beholder). That means you could get three tickets next Wednesday if you show up, bring a newbie and wear an ugly holiday sweater. (Get me: I’m giving out raffle tickets!)

This week, we chatted about balloon hoaxes, Tar Heel State parallels and Cold War toys. Plus there was this musical movie memory:

Come out to play between now and then. And bring a newbie for an extra ticket. Possibly other reasons to get extra tix as we move along. Follow me on Twitter for the scoop.

Newbvember is off to a grand start, however only one newbie was present this week. Better odds for the raffle but don’t get left out – bring a newbie (as many as you can wrangle) and get a raffle ticket for our weekly drawing. Spread the word! Newbvember continues next week.

This week, we sorted our musical billies, did cinema by the numbers and, like, totally got the sensation. And then there was this vegetarian support hotline…

Now, check out the team rankings for the week. We’ll see you next time, Quizlings!
