You Played for the Moneypenny and Got It

It was a jackpot night, and we had a nice game with four different teams winning rounds. And, there were several round ties.  We had a rarity, where two teams tied in round 1 at the top, and they picked the exact same time for the song.  Fortunately, they were cool about it and split the chips.  We're Playing for the Moneypenny also tied for the top spot on 2 rounds but lost them on the song length tie breaker. A very strong round 3 pushed them out into the lead and they didn't let up. Their play got them the win, and the guaranteed jackpot. Before the Cock Crows Twice, Thou Shalt Gasm Thrice took home the 2nd place prize.  Next week the jackpot starts over, so take your shot.

Holy Shit! They Broke Mutual Masturbation was our randomly chosen team for round two topics and here's what they came up with:
Evangelical Lutheran Church of America
The Mother Sauces
Quidditch through the Ages
English Premier League Soccer
Scandinavia and the World (comic)
Classic American Coctails
Knitting Notions
Pre-2007 Tori Amos
WW 2 Aircraft
Emperor Norton
Exalted (2nd Edition RPG White Wolf)
Bars in Castro, San Francisco

Hit the books and we'll see you next Wednesday.

Guest Hosts Are Always the Best Hosts

We love guest hosts. Not only does it give our brains a week off from coming up with questions, it also gives us a chance to play.  Thanks to Fresnocity for filling our shoes this Wednesday.  Congrats to Alana is Satan on their win  and taking home a stand alone jackpot.

Next week, we'll return to our normal format with Adam and Ed at the front table, testing your knowledge. Remember, there will only be 1 chip in the jackpot bag, so if your team wins the game, you'll win the jackpot.

Don't You Want Me, Riker was randomly selected for Round two topics a week ago, and here's what they think you should study up on:
Famous Jesus Christ quotes
High Fidelity (movie)
Famous UFO encounters
Loni Anderson's Plastic Surgeries
James Bond's villains
Pootie Tang (movie)
Jason Mraz
Dollywood Theme Park
Geography of Scotland
Wild West Outlaws

It looks like we all have our work cut out. Get your study on, and we'll see you next Wednesday at Pub Quiz.

Where Would I Periodically Find That?

This week we had our second alternate night game on a Tuesday.  Thanks to the 12 teams that were able to make it out.  It was a good, close game, and again, there were 4 different round winners.  The team that won the game, It's Boron, Dumbass, didn't even win one of the rounds, but were consistent enough to pull off the victory.  They weren't able to pull that jackpot chip, so in two weeks, they'll have a chance to take it all home.  And so will you.

Wait a minute, two weeks? That's right.  Next week, we return to our Wednesday night game on 4/16, but we'll have a guest host. Fresnocity is stepping up to the head table, and they'll be writing all the questions for the night. As always when we have a guest host, it's a stand alone game. That means no topics and an automatic jackpot.  If your team can outsmart everyone else over four rounds you'll get paid!

Don't You Want Me, Riker? was randomly selected for Round 2 topics for the game on 4/23, and we'll post those next week.  That game will also be a winner take all jackpot, as we'll be down to 1 chip left in the bag.

Thanks again for being flexible players and working with our wacky schedule over these last two weeks.

He Loves Zombies, Zombies Love Your Brains

Going into this week, we were a little worried that we might be the only people that showed up for our Pub Quiz. We didn't know if you would think the change of night was an April Fools joke or what. We didn't know if everyone had their Tuesday nights all filled up.  Fortunately, most of you were still able to make it. We had fourteen teams flexing their mental muscles all over each other.  The game had four different round winners, and every round was won by an 8 or better.  Look at the big brains on you all.  By the end of the night, PS, Adam Hearts the Walking Dead managed to be the brainiest.  However, they were the luckiest, and didn't draw the jackpot chip. Next week, it will be 1 in 3 odds.

Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 Was Commandeered by Barney Stinson was randomly drawn for round two topics, and here's what they chose:

Talladega Nights
Chuck Ragan (musician)
Game of Thrones Season 4 Ep. 1
Rick and Morty (tv show)
Baking Terminology
Moonstruck (movie)
The Fifth Element (movie)
Giant (movie)
Rebel Without A Cause (movie)
The Three Stooges - original
Health Care Associated Infections
Banshee (tv show)
The Americans (tv show)

If you don't know, now you know. Study up.

Remember, next week's Pub Quiz will be on Tuesday again. We will return to our normal Wednesday slot on April 16th.
