Trivia Rankings: 4 December 2019

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:

9 October Trivia Rankings

October 10, 2019

Where’d the people go? Seriously, a lot less Quizlings than last week. I have to assume we have a large Jewish contingent that was away atoning. G’mar Hatimah Tovah!

For those that were there – wow, a very close game and the second four-way tie for first place this year (perhaps, ever).

What’d we talk about? Some Down Under geography, some filthy rich US Americans and some burger chain role playing. And there was this seasonal song …

Now, let’s see who did what to whom and when …

October 11, 2018

Note: Halloween Triviaganza is still on! Prizes for our favorite costumes (including that Golden Ticket) so dress up for a night of treats only (no tricks) this October 31st!

This week, we talked politics with Tay Tay, stood on the Four Corners and chowed down on some spinach courtesy of our pals in Asia. Plus there were these two songs – yet one title:

What an amazing night of trivia, Quizlings. A light turnout but a bright turnout (check out those scores!) nonetheless. Remember our Halloween Trivia Bash in just a few weeks – prizes for costumes that move us.

I love my Quizlings! Honestly, you lot need to understand that. Wednesday night trivia is the highlight of my week (sorry, family) and all of you kind folks who come out to play each week make that happen. Many thanks for that.

What happened this week? We learned how long it takes to get to the moon, who really invented the telephone and how quickly we forget losing running mates. And then there was this boxing moment…

July 11 Trivia Rankings

July 12, 2018

It was great to see folks out again for an evening of Tomato Jake’s Trivia after a week off for America’s birthday. We got some cool ice cream to offset the heat and some cool trivia to satiate our brains.

The Dog Days of Trivia continue all summer long so bring those pooches out to the patio to get entered in our gift basket raffle (date: TDB, at the end of the season – you must be present to win). I will offer opportunities next month for those who don’t have pets to proffer for prizes.

What did we learn this week? Dinosaurs are cool (except when they sing and dance). Sparky has a lot of Tay Tay on his MP3 player. And corn pone is not what you think. Plus there was this incredible Kentucky-fried guest appearance…
