You Wouldn't Have a Child If it Wasn't for Me

We almost doubled up our teams this week, with thirteen groups getting down in the back of The Landmark for some Pub Quiz. Fire Squids Are Your O.G. and You Will Respect Us As Such grabbed a two point lead in round one and never looked back. FKA Riker and I'd Like To Order a Beer tried to keep it close, and Fox in the Rabbit Hole took the last round, but the Squid was too strong. But, their fire was extinguished when it came time to pull the jackpot, next week there will only be 3 chips in the bag.

We will now get back to our creative process and see you next Wednesday for Pub Quiz.

Ties, Ties, Ties

We had a tidy little game of Pub Quiz this last week. Seven teams squared off at the Landmark. The first two rounds had some strong scores across the board. FKA Riker used perfect 10's in rounds 2 and 4 to take a top spot, and Alana is Satan had a 10 in round 2 and strong scores in each round to also be at the top. FKA Riker won our tie breaker, but didn't pull the jackpot, so that will start to grow.

We hope to see you next Wednesday at the Landmark. And if you want some trivia on Monday night, check out our friends at Sequoia North.

Do You Want Me to Buy Applesauce?

This week's Pub Quiz started with our players questioning if they could win the Powerball jackpot, our jackpot, and we suppose that one team was asking if they could win their fourth game in a row.

The game was a nice one, with 4 different teams pulling in a round win. There were several round ties, and the lead moved around a bit. After 4 rounds, we had a tie at the top. Perennial bridesmaid, Alana is Satan was there, and a regular team trying out their own new name of Bye Motts...Hello Wins was their. And closest to the elevation of Cripple Creek, Colorado was Bye Motts...Hello wins. This was that team's first time winning, and they capped the night by grabbing the jackpot. Alana is Satan took home the consolation second place prize.

Next week, we'll start a new jackpot run. Bring your team, your quirky knowledge, and have a good time with us.

Also, the new Landmark owners have informed us that they'll only be accepting the round winning chips on Wednesday nights, and are encouraging you to use them the night you win them. We hope we'll see you next week at Pub Quiz!

Al B Sure We Might Have a Winner Next Week

We kicked off the calendar year, and we're quickly closing in on finishing up our sixth year of hosting Fresno's best Pub Quiz. This last week, we had ten teams square off. The game was a fun one, and it had it's twist and turns and stayed close throughout. When the four rounds were done and dusted, we had a three way tie between 20 Megatons of Kimchi, Alana is Satan and the Fire Squids. Alana is Satan was closest on our tie breaker question, but they didn't snag the jackpot chip. So, that means next week will be 50/50 odds - which is way better than a powerball drawing. Of course, the payout is a lot smaller, too, but we hope you join us on Wednesday to take your shot.

If you want to practice, warm up your brain, or just get more trivia in your life, we also recommend you check out our friends Sequoia Pub Quiz, which is Monday night's at Sequoia North.

One final word of encouragement - keep using those tokens so we keep them in circulation.

Doctor, Doctor

We hope you had a wonderful NYE and are closing out this holiday season in style. And thanks to everyone that played Pub Quiz with us this year.

In our last game of the year, on December 30th, thirteen teams squared off at the Landmark. 4 different teams won rounds, and we had a couple of round ties decided by song length speculation. And when it was all over, the winning team was the same as the previous two games. Yep, 2015 was closed out by a 3 game streak. This week, that team was named Misdiagnosis - Turns Out the Affluenza was Actually Assholitis. But, like last game, they were unable to pull the jackpot so it will keep growing.

Our next game will ring in the new year on January 6th, 2016. We hope you'll join us.

And, if you're looking for a little trivia before that, our friends at Sequoia Pub Quiz kick off on Monday, January 4th.
