Guesting is Besting

Doomed to Lose Forever stepped in for the regular hosts this week, and they brought the challenge.  It's always hard to host, and they did an admirable job on the questions & hosting.  Each of the four rounds were won by different teams, a little guy we always shoot for.  At the end of four rounds, they even had an overall tie. Surprisingly, the two teams were right next to each other.  Conejos Sin Cabeza Con Cervesa was beaten on the tie breaker by one of the two teams we had on the night named We're Just Here So We Don't Get Fined.  As with every guest hosted game, it was a winner take all jackpot so We're Just Here had a nice little payday.

Next week, Adam & Ed will be back behind the head table. It's 50/50 odds on the jackpot so there's a good chance another team can take home a nice jackpot.  We hope to see you next Wednesday at the Landmark.

Also, if you want some extra trivia in your life, check out Sequoia North on Monday nights.

Mas Finas Ganar

We had a great night of Pub Quiz this week. We had 17 teams, and 9 of those teams finished over 30 points! For those of you that don't know, our goal is for the winning team to finish around 30, but you all crushed it this week.  Los Jugadores Mas Finas won the game at 35 points, which is great, but not quite our record score.  The were solid in each round, and were able to pull ahead of everyone else.  However, they weren't able to pull the jackpot chip, so the odds will be 50/50 for our game on February 4th.

On January 28th, we will have a guest host. We usually have one of you teams run the show, come up with all the questions, and we play about 4 times a year. This time, we'll be out there, and Doomed to Lose Forever will be hosting. Whenever we have a guest host we consider it a stand alone game, so whatever team wins will automatically take home the jackpot (no drawing).  So, it's always a good time to play.

Adam & Ed will be back at the hosting table on February 4th, when the jackpot will be 50/50 odds. But we will still see you next week.

Hey, Mr. Tambourine Man

This week at Pub Quiz we celebrated our 5th anniversary. That's right, back in 2010 we started throwing trivia out at you, and some of you have been with us every week since.  We appreciate every person that's played along the way, whether they have played one game or tons of them.  Thank you all so much.

This week's game started out close, but one team grabbed the lead after round 2 and built on it.  Michael J. Fox is Terrible at Stealing Tambourines was that team, and they ended up with 34 points and the win.  However, they didn't pull the jackpot chip, so next week there will be 2 reds & the winning blue chip in the bag.

New Year, Same Satan?

We returned from our holiday hiatus to an exciting Pub Quiz match.  Eleven teams squared off, some new, some old, some returning from their own hiatus.  Each round went to a different team, and when we reached the end, one team was one half point in the lead over two other teams.  That one team, Alana is Satan, who won the last game of last year.  Not a bad way to end last year or start this year, we say.  However, they were unable to pull the jackpot, but it was only week one, so that will start building with better odds.

Next week, Pub Quiz will be celebrating. Yep, it's time for our annual cheer to us.  In case you don't know your Fresno Pub Quiz history, we played our first game, in the front room of the Landmark, on January 13, 2010.  Yep, we've been at this 5 years!  So, come out and join us on Wednesday as we not only have a great game of trivia, but as we celebrate the years.
