Quiz-gasms Were King

There were several royal related names among the pop culture references by teams this week.  Hopefully, the future possible king of England learns of us at some time.  But when he does, will he learn of We'll Be Giving You the Quiz-gasms Next Week?  Perhaps.  They were good enough to win round two, and good enough to string together a top score and were crowned champions.  Alas, they were not lucky enough to go King Arthur style and pull the winning chip from either a stone or the bag.  The jackpot will carry over to two weeks from now.

Like their name implies, the Gasms will be guest hosting next week.  For those that don't know, periodically your regular hosts take a week of and play from the other side of the table.  Another team volunteers to create all the questions and run the show for the night.  So next week, the team that has Gasms in their name will be hosting.  Like always with guest hosts, it will be a winner take all match - the top team of the night automatically wins the jackpot!  So, it's always a good chance to show up, flex your brain muscles, and take home a good prize.

One final note - through July we haven't had our Round 2 topics.  Now is your chance to let us know your opinion.  Should we go back to Round 2 topics chosen by a team?  Should we continue to create 4 rounds of trivia like we did in July?

The Spoils Go to the Victors

After three rounds last week, three teams were tied for first. However, one team wanted it all, and so they answered 8 of the final 10 questions correctly and took home the win. Congratulations go out to Spoiler Alert: Space Mountain Isn't Really in Space. Not only did they win the game, they also won the jackpot.  Next week, the jackpot starts fresh.

One final note: the Landmark is a restaurant/bar. They do not allow outside food or drinks. Please do not bring unapproved outside food or beverages into The Landmark. They can lose their liquor license if the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control catches patrons with outside items so it's a matter of regulation. If you're hoping to celebrate a birthday or other event during pub quiz with baked goods, call ahead to check with the manager and see if what you'd like to do is kosher with them. Their bar and restaurant, their rules.

See You Soon

It's true, Pub Quiz will be back this week.  We hope you enjoyed your vacation.  But, we also hope your brain didn't atrophy in your time away from the game.  This week jackpot odds are 1 in 3, so you've got a good chance of taking home the jackpot if you can win the game.

This week, we will have a game theme of California Theme Parks.  Remember all your good times on family vacation?  Remember making out in line for that ride?  Remember smelling terrible after that water ride?  Collect your memories and we'll see you Wednesday night at Pub Quiz.

No Longer Underperforming

First and foremost, we'd like to thank Fresno Filmworks for donating tickets to an upcoming showing.  The tickets went to the best name on the night, We Twerk Hard for the Money.

The Spectacularly Underperforming Multiple Drunkgasms won round one, and although they weren't in first every round, they stayed close enough and pulled off the win.  But, for the second week in a row, they didn't pull the jackpot. It continues to build!

Remember, the Landmark is closed next week, so Pub Quiz will be on vacation.
