Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner

The top three teams this week all finished within three points of each other this week, with Expecto Patronizing Remarks one point ahead of Los Pervertibles De La Noche.  However, Expecto didn't pull the jackpot chip, and so next week there will only be two chips in the bag.

Mary Poppins (movie)
The Justice League (comic books)
The films of John Hughes
Les Miserables (the musical)
Beatles song lyrics

Evil Dwelt, won

It was a dominant win for I Made Evil, Dwelt: Lewd, Live Ed Am I this week.  They were a song tie-breaker away from winning all four rounds.  They ended up with 35 points after winning rounds 1, 2, and 4 with Los Pervertibles de la Noche taking down round 3.  As dominant as I Made Evil, Dwelt: Lewd, Live Ed Am I were on the night, they still didn't pull the jackpot, so next week there is a 1 in 3 chance.

Here are the topics picked by I Made Evil, Dwelt: Lewd, Live Ed Am I for next week's round 2:
Ginny Weasley
Sirins Black
Neville Longbottom
Moaning Myrtle
Severus Snape
Nymphadora Tonks
Mad Eye Moody
Norbert the Norwegian Ridgeback
Oliver Wood
The Grey Lady
Bellatrix Lestrange
Victor Krum
Gellert Grindelwald
Minerva mcGonagall

Yep, those are all Harry Potter characters, so get your muggle on.

Commander Rikurry and Rice Tastes Success

Another week, another good time at Pub Quiz.  When it was all said and done, the top 3 teams were all within 2 points of each of, and the next 4 were only another 1 or 2 points off of that.  And even though it was so close, one team actually managed to win rounds 1, 3, and 4.  That team, Commander Rikurry & Rice.  They ate up the competition but were not able to pull the jackpot chip from the full bag.  So, next week the jackpot starts to build.

Since they won round 4, as is custom, they chose topics for next week's round 2.  Here's what you should study:
Plate Tectonics
Diseases You Can Die From
South Lake Tahoe Nightclubs
Las Vegas, Nv.
They Might Be Giants
Friar's Club
Giant Garter Snakes
1920's Burlesque
Foods Outlawed in California
Armenian Food
Hermaphrodites We Know and Love, Again!

There you have it.  Study up and enjoy.  We'll see you next Wednesday at Pub Quiz.

Duckie For the Win!

It was another good week of Pub Quiz at the Landmark on Wednesday.  A couple of lead changes, a late rally and an overall tie made it fun for us, and hopefully for you as well.  When it was all said and done, Duckie Would Like to Thank the Academy were the winners, and they pulled the jackpot chip.

Attack of the Quads won round 4, and that helped them into the overall tie but they just missed on the tie-breaker.  However, they still chose these topics for next week's round 2 for everyone to study:
Words that start with the letter A
90's cartoons
80's cartoons
Dumb and Dumber (movie)
G-code (manufacturing)
California 8th Grade US History Standards
California 7th Grade World History Standards
Non-deterministic Finite Automata
World Geography
College Mascots
RuPaul's Drag Race (tv show)
1990's TGIF Lineup
1990's Nickelodeon Shows
African Countries & Capitals - just names, not facts

Study up, and if you feel like another night of trivia, hit up Sequoia North Pub Quiz on Monday nights.
