We Will Remember

Another good week of Pub Quiz this last Wednesday. Eleven teams challenged their knowledge and each other over at the Santa Fe Basque. The game moved around, and four different teams won a round. The lead moved around just as much, and when it was all said and done, Never Forget 7-11 dispensed a 10 in round four and grabbed the win. However, they didn't snatch the winning chip, so next week it will be 50/50 odds on the jackpot.

We hope you'll join us at the Santa Fe Basque for Fresno's best pub quiz next week. Take your shot for the win and for the jackpot.

Last Week's Recap

Last week, 5 of the 7 teams playing scored above an 8 in round 1. Your hosts, Adam and Ed thought maybe we had been too easy on you all. After that, no team scored above a 7 in any round. So, things got a little tougher. Rabbits Holding Out for Ringo Star held on to the lead pretty well for the first three rounds, but the Fire Squids grabbed a share of the lead in round 3 and inked out enough in round 4 to win the night. However, they didn't pull the jackpot chip, so Wednesday there will be 2 red chips and the jackpot chip in the bag.

We'll see you Wednesday at the Santa Fe Basque.

Real Close But So Far

It was a fun night last Wednesday at Pub Quiz. Eleven teams squared off over at the Santa Fe Basque. I Bet the Republican Has Air Conditioning grabbed the lead early, and stayed in first place all night. In an interesting twist though, they never won a round due to time tie breakers. And, at the end of the game, we had a tie at the top, with Alana is Satan pulling into the top spot as well. After our tie breaker question, Alana is Satan was deemed the winner. However, they were not successful in pulling the jackpot chip, so that will begin to build.

Join us next Wednesday for another great game of Pub Quiz at the Santa Fe Basque.

It Would Be

It was a smaller night at Pub Quiz this week, which might have helped out some teams since it was a 50/50 drawing on the jackpot. However, Wouldn't President Trump Be Punishment Enough didn't leave it close. They grabbed the lead in round 1 and never let it go. Even with an "off" round four of 7, they still won handily. They were also lucky enough to snag the jackpot chip.

Next week, the jackpot starts over, and we'll hit you with more high quality trivia. We hope you'll join us at the Santa Fe Basque on Wednesday.

Mas Finas Win

Another good week of Pub Quiz at our new home, the Santa Fe Basque. Four teams jumped out with 9 points in round 1 and it looked like it could be a crazy, high scoring game. However, the remaining rounds calmed the scoring down a little. After round 2, two teams had separated themselves away a little from the pack. They stayed tied after round 3, but a perfect 10 in round 4 pulled Los Jugadores Mas Finas solely into first place and the win. However, they didn't pull the jackpot chip. So, next week it'll be 50/50 odds on a nice jackpot.

See you next Wednesday!

Welcome to our new home

Wednesday was our first Pub Quiz at our new home - Santa Fe Basque. Their will be a little bit of a learning curve as we figure out how to best arrange the room for our players, but we think everyone had a good time.

The game started as a close match between Are Landmark Tokens Good Here? and Alana is Satan, as they traded wins for rounds 1 & 2. The Fire Squids made a run to get back in it, taking down round 3. However, Alana is Satan conjured up a 10 in round 4 to really shut down the competition. However, they didn't pull the jackpot, so next week there will be 2 reds + the jackpot chip in the bag.

See you next Wednesday at the Santa Fe Basque. Check out the food, and super cheap beers & cocktails.

Registration starts at 7:15, game at 8. Teams of 1-6, $5 a person.
