Stiching Together a Win

It was a jackpot week, and it seemed like teams were stretching their collective brains in their attempt to take home the big prize.  When it was all said and done, Witches Get Stitches pulled away from the pack and won it all.

Round four brought a three way tie, and all three teams were within ten seconds of the song length.  Norfolk-in-Chance was closest, and snagged the honor of choosing next week's round two topics.  Here's what they chose for you all to study up on:

Birth Defects (human)
Ideal Gas Law
Banned Books
Real Analysis
NP Complete Problems
Curling (sport)
Hurling (sport)
Furling (sailing)
Pearling (knitcraft)
Dog Diseases
Famous Freaks (sideshow acts)
Medieval Torture Techniques
Hysteria Treatment

Next week we'll be back with a new jackpot.  Bring your friends and try your luck.  Maybe your team can take down a round or two and win it all.

Quoth the Gasm, it's a Winner!

It was a come for behind win for Quoth the Gasm, Nevermore as they jumped from third to first in the final round.  Pretty impressive stuff.  However, they failed to pull the jackpot at 50/50, so next week... someone has to win the jackpot, right?  Yes, yes, some team will win it all.  You had better bring your best team.

Even with Quoth the Gasm doing so well in round 4, one team did better. The Immortal Lobsters... Are Delicious with Butter swallowed up nine points and round 4.  We think it may be the first time for this team to win round 4, and these are the topics they choose for next week's round 2:
Del Taco History
Books by Neil Gaiman
Doctor Who
Bioshock Infinite
2013 NFL Draft
Honey Badgers
Early 90's R & B
Wipeout (tv show)
Killer Klowns from Outer Space
Kevin Smith
John Hughes films
the X Files (movie + tv - but not the comics)

Hopefully, we'll have a nice full house, a large jackpot, and another good game at Pub Quiz. Study up and we'll see you next Wednesday

Satan Wins Again

Pub Quiz can be a cruel mistress.  You can win two rounds, feel on top of the world, and almost have it snatched away from you. You can win two rounds, but still not end up in the top two at the end of the night.  You can not win any rounds, but play solid and end up losing in a tie breaker at the end.  All of those things happened this week at Pub Quiz.  When it was all said and done, Alana is Satan prevailed.  They've been on quite a streak lately, with several first place finishes.  However, they didn't pull the winning chip, so next week it's 50/50 odds.

Will you be on the team to win the jackpot?  To have a good shot, you had better study on these topics, provided by Multiple Sarcasms, our round four winner:
The Office (US version)
The Mindy Project (tv show)
The Land Before Time (movie)
The Beatles
The Definite Article (The)
The Cat Who Walks Through Walls (book)
The United States Constitution
The Guardians of the Galaxy (comic book/movie)
The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (book)
The Dark Side of the Moon (Pink Floyd album)
The Dark Side of the Moon (The Dark Side of the Moon)
The Meaning of Life (Monty Python movie)
The Hague
The The (band)

There you go, folks.  Study up, and we'll see you next Wednesday

V for Victory?

Riker, Almost a Palindrome, Almost had what some may call a bookend game.  They won round 1, hung on to first place through rounds 2 and 3, and then won round 4.  Pretty impressive stuff, worthy of our congratulations.  But, do you know what they didn't win? The jackpot.  Sadface for that.  But that means next week there will be 3 chips in the bag - 2 red & 1 blue.  Will your team cast aside Riker like a bad number one?  Will your team be a jackpot winner?  Or will Riker return engage for another victory?

Riker hopes you don't study these topics, but we think you should:
Vocalists on Broadway
Vidal Sassoon
Villains from Disney
Vidal, Gore
Venture Brothers Cartoon
Versailles (in France)
Voluptuous Vixens
V for Vendetta, the movie

Hopefully you don't vivisect your brain as you study up, and we'll see you next Wednesday at Pub Quiz.

One final note, you can hear an interview with your Pub Quiz hosts on Sunday morning at 9:30 a.m. on KFSR, 90.7.   We'll be on The Art of the No.

Ballin' dunked all over the competition this week.  They won two rounds, and were a part of a round 4 tie that helped them jump over everyone else for the win.  It was the first week for the jackpot, and unfortunately for Collins B. Ballin', their luck didn't hold through the jackpot draw, so next week there will be four chips in the draw.
