Trois, Trois Again.

This last Wednesday, Team Riker was dominant. If At First Commander Riker Doesn't Suceed, He Trois, Trois Again kept at it, and won round 3 and 4 of the game. That helped them pull away to a victory by a few points, finishing with 31.5 points on the night. And, they won the jackpot (there was only 1 chip left). Congratulations to them for such a great evening.

Remember, next Wednesday is Halloween, so we won't be having Pub Quiz. We figure that there will be a lot of people out and about in the Tower District, and that the Landmark will be jammed with ghouls and ghosts. So, we'll be back on November 7th. Check back on November 2nd for topics for that game...picked by If At First Commander Riker Doesn't Succeed, He Trois, Trois Again.

Second Satan Win in a Row

Alana is Satan likes winning.  They've done it the past two weeks, each time right around 29.5 points.  And, they did it on a tie breaker question.  Congratulations to them on their win.  You, on the other hand, may want to congratulate them on not pulling the jackpot chip.  That means next week is a guaranteed jackpot for the winner of the game. Will Alana is Satan make it three weeks in a row, or will your team knock them off?

Round 4 was also won on a tie breaker, and Assphincter Says PFFT! chose these topics for your study:
Jane Austen Movies
Grandma's Boy
Electronic Music
U.S. Constitution
Y G Entertainment
Children's book authors
The Walking Dead (tv show)
Steven Seagal movies
Modest Mouse
Ancient Rome
Family Guy (Season 1)
Catching Fire (Hunger Games series)

An interesting mix for you to study, and you better get on it if you want a shot at the jackpot.

Final Note - Don't forget there will be no Pub Quiz on 10/31, but you're welcome to come down and join the Halloween fun at the Landmark.

Alana is Satan and a winner

We love a close game, and this week didn't disappoint. First place finished with 29.5 points, right ahead of a three way tie @ 29 points.  And, there were 3 more teams within 2 points.  What a night.  By the way, Alana is Satan developed a lead in round 3 and hung on for the win.  Congrats go out to them for the win, but they didn't pull the jackpot, which means 50/50 odds next week.

Round 4 was won by My Super Gravity Licks Your G-String Theory and they chose these topics for you to study:
State and Federal Payroll Taxes
Stephen Hawking
Robert Heinlen
Super-string theory
Top Gear UK version
Life and Career of Maggie Smith
Fresno Brewing Company
Castle (tv series)
The Freedomland by Jonathan Franzen
Music Theory
United States Presidents
In N Out Secret Menu
Elton John
Peter Gabriel's album So

A final reminder - Halloween is a Wednesday, and it usually can get a bit crazy at the Landmark so we're not going to fight the crowd.  No pub quiz on the 31st.

Pub Quiz Wouldn't Cut PBS

Our latest Pub Quiz was another close game that came down to a really close finish. So close that it ended in a tie game.  The Pervertibles and We Heart Big Bird Too both managed to get 30.5 points.  They both missed the tie breaker question, but when it was all said and done We Heart Big Bird Too was closer for the win.  However, the didn't pull the winning chip, so the jackpot rolls over again. Next week wil be 2 reds & 1 blue.

The Pervertibles won rounds 1 & 4, but as we mentioned before, didn't win the game.  However, they did choose these topics for you to study.  We hope you have some popcorn handy.
