Sweet, Suite, Bro

We were glad to be back at the head table this week, testing out your brains.  It was a good game with four different rounds winners, a lead change, and a tie at the end.  I'm Not A Proctologist But I'll Take a Look won that tiebreaker over the Sieve Pros.  However, they weren't lucky enough to pull the week 1 chip so the jackpot will begin to build.

Rabbits Deliver, Death from Above Kills It

We had a guest host last Wednesday and they did Rabbit-y good job.  As with any guest host, they brought their own individual flavor and a different take on questions.

In the game, one team had the interesting twist of being tied for first in three rounds, but losing them all on the time tie breaker.  That takes some skills. They did manage to win round 3 outright, and all those good scores helped them end up with a 2.5 point on all the other teams.  That team, Death from Above.  They soared above us all and killed the winner take all jackpot.

Next week, Adam and Ed return to their normal hosting duties.  We'll see you Wednesday at Pub Quiz!

A Special No One Wants

We welcomed you back to Pub Quiz with a fun, yet challenging game of trivia this week.  Thirteen teams showed of a variety of knowledge and took their shot at winning it all.  The Fire Squids and Lucky Cats started strong, with Rabbits with Bad Habits right behind. Next Mission: 4.5 Billion Miles to Mickey and Minnie made a strong run at the end, taking rounds 3 & 4.  But the real MVP was Jared's New Deal: Free 6-incher With Every Kids Meal.  They didn't win a round, but they did lose out on two very close round tie-breakers.  And at the end of it all, they had a 2 point lead on every other team.  Their game continued to be strong all the way through the jackpot draw where they snagged the blue chip and the big prize.  As the second place team on a jackpot night, Fire Squids won their money back.  Congrats & thanks to everyone for a great night of Pub Quiz.

Next week we've got a guest host.  Like we do every 3-4 months, one of the regular teams of players takes over the question writing and runs the night.  That guest team will be: Rabbits With Bad Habits.  Adam & Ed will be out in the audience, testing their knowledge just like you.  Whenever we have a guest host, it's winner take all.  So bring your wits, bits of random trivia and your best team and be the big winner.

One final note: our friends at Sequoia North Pub Quiz start back up next week at their new home.  You'll now find them on Tuesday nights at Guri's Grub House.

Squids Can Be Found on the Mall

We've been enjoying our vacation. We're sure the Landmark enjoyed their vacation, and we hope you've enjoyed your vacation from Pub Quiz.  But we also know we're ready to get back at it.

A little recap of our last game on July 1st.  Alana is Satan took and early lead in the game, but it was close in every round. By round three, they had dropped back into a tie for first with the Fire Squids, one of our newer teams that have been making a decent showing each week.  They pulled off a perfect 10 in round 4, and Alana is Satan was only able to conjure up a 9.5, giving the Fire Squids their first win ever.  However, they weren't able to pull the lucky chip and so the jackpot was back to the sea to continue to grow for another team to try and catch.

Next week there will be 1 blue and 2 reds in the bag, so the odds are getting better for you all.  A little heads up: every couple of months we have a guest host game.  One of you teams takes our place at the head table, writing and asking all the questions and we play alongside of you.  Whenever we do this it's a winner take all jackpot night, which is always lovely.  Our next guest team will be up very soon, so be on the lookout. Also, if your team would like to get on our guest host waiting list, come talk to us.

We'll see you next Wednesday at the Landmark. As always, registration begins after 7 pm, game starts at 8.  Teams of 1-6, $5 a person.
