June 12 Trivia Rankings

June 13, 2019

Huzzah! It finally happened! The indyweek made me a real boy! Or something like that. As metaphors go, it’s not my best (apologies).


Thanks to all the Quizlings who made it happen. We will continue to thank you and reward you as much as we can and, while it is far too early to think about this kinda stuff, dare I hope for a twopeat?

Anyway, we gave you some free grub and some wild, weird trivia. There were some Dunkin Donuts gift cards as well (and there will be more in future). So keep coming back, spread the word and don’t miss a single week!

What’d we talk about? How to properly play Uno, for starters. Then there was something about some planetary opposition and a Tony-winning meth dealer. Oh, and there was this ASMR commercial…

Now here are the team rankings. See you next time, Quizlings!
