It was Back to the Future Trivia night at the World of Beer in Arlington, and once again, the theme night did not disappoint. Though I was unable to snap some photos of our wonderful costumed individuals, I can tell you we had a few Marty McFlys in the crowd, as well as the lovely Lorraine Baines, and even a 1955 Biff Tannen. With a fantastic crowd poised to go back in time, or possibly into the future, we settled in for a great night of trivia. In a slightly different format, we shifted away from the theme rounds for each game, but added the beloved Kitchen Timer question, and a visual round for each game. The result was more points available for each team, and a better chance we would not end with a 5-way tie at the end of the game. And, in typical PubGuy fashion, it worked like a charm. The crowd loved the extra questions, and we had 2 awesome games with clear winners.
In the opening stanza, we saw a flurry of teams all with excellent scores toward the top of the leaderboard. From The Power of Self-Love to The Power of Butt-Love, and from Grays Almanac to Delorean Gray and His Sidekicks and even Biff's Your Daddy, we enjoyed the great team names. When it came down to it at the end of Game 1, Quiz in My Stinky Lomax behind the knowledge of JimmyLo was able to edge out the powerhouse This is Our PLC for the win.
For the Power Hour, despite a tremendous effort by Go Flux Yourself and quite the rally by This is Our PLC, the team of Griff's Your Daddy was able to capture the victory.
At the end of it all, everyone had enjoyed a tremendous night of trivia and we are left wondering what the next major theme night will be that is sure to rock your faces. If you have ideas for a theme night, you can always tweet it, post it to our facebook page, or simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Though the Back to the Future theme night did not count as a PubGuys Trivia League night, don't forget to keep an eye on those standings and plan your weeks accordingly. There are only a few weeks left in the League, so you won't want to miss out on your chance and a hefty cash payout.
As always, remember to follow us on the major social networking sites, and thanks to all the teams that posted your lovely photos for us. We truly appreciate it. Now tag yourselves and tell your friends so they can join in on the fun!
It's time for me to make like a tree, and get the heck out of here.
