January 23 Trivia Rankings

January 24, 2019

Another week, another game, even more Girl Scout Cookies. Thanks to all the Quizlings who came out to play (the rest of you, come back soon – you are missed!) in a contentious round of TJWN Trivia!

FYI – Mega apologies for the wonky question. If it helps (and it should), throwing out the said question had zero effect on the rankings.

What did we do this week? Well, we didn’t stop believin’ for a start (thanks, Journey) and we headlined Coachella with Tame Impala and we made some rather juvenile Uranus jokes (aren’t they all?). Plus there was this completely-not-just-made-up television show…

Now let’s check out the team rankings. Interesting note: not a single tie this week!

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.

Girl Scout Cookies, a Hello Kitty treasure hunt and a dam tiebreaker. What’s not to love?

Seriously, Quizlings, what a night! Tougher than usual? Depends on whom you ask. But the scores look more along the usual lines than last week’s Potter-filled fluke. Along the way, there were doughnuts and beers and playing cards. That’s a fun night no matter how you slice it.

Misfortune Cookies

February 28, 2017

A word of warning. Never haggle with a girl scout over the cost of Savannah Smiles. They budge on price as much as Carmax does. Plus they get stroppy when you try to pull the Jedi mind trick on ‘em. “I think these cookies are $2 per box and not $4.” Nope, doesn’t work. And they are much shorter than you are, so when they kick – ouch.

Not saying I got into a scuffle with a gaggle of Brownies outside Old Navy. I’m just saying it wasn’t the best day ever.
