June 21 Trivia Rankings

June 21, 2017

A smaller than usual crowd this week (missing some regular Quizlings – come back soon ‘ciz we got ice cream) but the competition was fierce. A very close game, when all is said and done. And along the way we went Down Under, said “Goodnight, Moon” and met some billionaires. Then things got icy (sorry about that).

Oh and there was this invention map:

Some fun was had, some questions were posed and a winner was declared. Of course, there was more to it than that. There were four-letter words, Latin elements and a bark lion sentinel dog named Lucky. Plus, there was this musical monstrosity:

What a great night, Quizlings! Thanks to all who braved the icy chill and took part in a pretty impressive round of trivia (if I do say so myself – and I do).

December 21 Trivia Rankings

December 21, 2016

Happy holidays, Quizlings! And many thanks to those who came out to share a pre-Yule triviaganza with us. I guess if you could have made a meal off of the trivia this week it would consist of sufganiyah, provolone, salt, liver, Captain Morgan, Monster Energy Drink and, uh – candles. Not sure if that’s palatable but the trivia sure was fun. We’ll wrap up 2016 next Wednesday with some year-in-review questions and the December raffle (bring those newbies, wear those sweaters and post those fliers).

A fun pre-Turkey Day triviaganza. Thanks to the Quizlings who made it out. Thanks for all the hand turkeys. And thanks for taking that hefty Butterball off our hands (seriously, he was beginning to bum out the other poultry).

What did we learn? Something about turkey protuberances, escaping the Nazis (I hate those guys) and how it’s a nice day for a royal wedding.
