This week, unlike last week, World of Beer - Ft. Worth had some great weather, so we had way more players show up this time. As usual the beer was flowing and the kitchen was pumping out amazing food for all the guests. We had 9 teams and about 37 players this week, with quite a few out on the patio with their furry friends. One of our regular teams returned this week as well, and they sure put a hurting on all the other teams in both games. If you have someone who's a smarty-pants, and knows a wide variety of "useless" information, be sure to bring them out next week for FREE trivia at World of Beer - Ft. Worth with Pubguys!
As mentioned previously we had one of our regular teams that hadn't been out for a few weeks, Shit Show, come out this week and sweep both games for 1st place. A few of our other regulars, Got Here Late and Aimee's Balls, gave it their best shot with Aimee's Balls taking 2nd place in Game 1. The theme for the Themed Round in Game 1 was Georgia, meaning all the questions/answers for that round had something to do with Georgia. New teams Lame Ducks and Da Fur Peeps came close to 1st and 2nd, but unfortunately couldn't make it happen. Here's a question that stumped everyone:
What is the size of an Olympic-sized swimming pool?
Most teams said 50 meters, so they received partial credit. We needed the length and width, though, so the correct answer for full credit was:
50 m (164 ft) x 25 m (82 ft)
This game was tough on everyone, with the highest score only being 22 points even after the Kitchen Timer bonus round. For those who don't know the Kitchen Timer bonus round takes place at the end of the game and could net a team anywhere from 8-10 bonus points. This week the theme for that round was the top 8 smartphone markets in 2021. This game Shit Show took 1st place again but Lame Ducks took 2nd place away from Aimee's Balls this time around. The theme for this game's Theme round was the letter Z, which took a lot of teams by surprise. Here's another question that stumped everyone:
Who co-wrote the song "Justify My Love" with Madonna?
This was a 3 point question so everyone was wracking their brains for the answer. Several teams said Prince, which would make sense, but they were wrong. The correct answer was:
Hopefully the weather stays amazing next week at World of Beer - Ft. Worth, so we can have more teams and another great time with Pubguys trivia! Don't forget it is Taco Tuesday every week, so you can get some delicious low-priced tacos while stretching your brain muscle. There's also always a chance that a brewery will show up with free samples and cool swag, so pop on by if you're in the area. I'll be there next week, hope to see you too! Until next time!
