Trivia Rankings: 19 February 2020

February 20, 2020

A light attendance, that’s for sure, but a very close game awaited those brave enough to show up. Missed a lot of regulars and I don’t know what will disappoint me more – to find out you were watching the debate or at the supermarket buying milk and bread in a meteorologist-fueled panic. Nonetheless, fun was had by all (well, most, I think). We’ll do it again in seven, Quizlings.

Quick note: April 8 is the first date for our new start time! 7:30pm is when Wednesday Night Trivia kicks off as of the second week in April. Spread the word and don’t miss a minute of the triviawesomness.

Another quick note: Nominations are open for Best of the Triangle. We would honestly love to be nominated for Best Trivia Night in the Triangle (last category in the Out & About section) at indyweek.com. Follow the instructions and thanks in advance for your help.

This week, we visited EPCOT on Jupiter wearing see-through yoga pants. Or something like that, it’s hard to remember. Plus there was this movie classic not called The Man On Lincoln’s Nose

Now check out these close (and high!) scores. Really, this is very impressive.

If you missed Wednesday night trivia, you missed a fabulous Lincoln’s birthday game of trivia and a lovely crowd that came to play. Your presence is always appreciated and it is fantastic to see so many familiar faces. Of course, there are always regulars we miss when they go away so please come back soon ‘cuz Sparky has abandonment issues.

This week, we moved with the speed of sound, made the first phone call from the White House and hit the gridiron with a knockoff NFL. Plus there was this video game match up…

A damp night out and a small yet competitive crowd of Quizlings inside. That’s the makings for a great game of Wednesday Night Trivia!

Note to anyone not in attendance the last couple of weeks: Due to popular demand, Tomato Jake’s Wednesday Night trivia will have a new start time at some point in the future. Date TBD but we want to give it a few weeks to get the word out. 7:30pm will be the new time, allowing folks to get home a half hour earlier. Stay tuned for more information.

This week, we ran the Krispy Kreme Challenge, played some sports of the 2010s and drilled some holes into some very undeserving skulls. Plus there were these pop cover kids…

Now, check out the scores for the week. Another extremely close game folks. Seriously, the Quizlings are good and the winner often comes down to a single question.

Another fantastic week with a very close and some great teams that came out to vie for the top spot. Thanks to all who made it (and the rest of you – please come out soon ‘cuz we miss you).

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.

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…)

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!
