How do you do that, you ask? By coming out every Tuesday and playing some FREE trivia with us! Each week there's two chances for a team to win a $25 or $10 gift certificate to World of Beer - Ft. Worth, so there's also two chances for you to get the perfect present for your beer-loving family members. Even if you don't win, a gift certificate is always a welcome gift for anyone who frequents downtown Ft. Worth. Here's what happened so you can prepare for next week:
We had an even bigger turnout this week than last week, with over 40 players going at it with us at World of Beer! With them, pretty frequently, we had Got Here Late, Fish Tots, and Sand Crackers. We also had some newcomers with Jia Boys, PD-1 Beasts, and First Pass taking on our regulars. Each game there is a Themed Round for Round 2, and the theme for this game was the miracle of flight, so all the questions and answers that round had to do with aviation or airplanes. In addition to the Themed Round each team was provided with a visual guide, worth 10 points, with the theme of "J" Movies. That meant that the guide had snippets of movies that start with the letter J, and each team had until the end of Round 3 to put down 10 answers and bring them up. Coming out on top, with only a two-point lead over 3rd, was Fist Tots, followed by Sand Crackers. Here's one that stumped all but one team:

Still with us we had Got Here Late, The Avengers, and Hoes for Sho. Once again, we had a Themed Round for Round 2, and this time it was Billy boy, so all the questions and answers that round had to do with various celebrities and presidents with the name Bill. Unlike Game 1, Game 2 had a Kitchen Timer Bonus Round worth 10 points. The teams were given a time limit, at the end of the game, to come up with 10 answers to the following: in terms of number of passengers per year, what are the 10 busiest airports in the world? This allows for teams that didn't do very well on any of the three-point questions to come back with a surprise win. This time Fist Tots took 1st place once again, with Got Here Late and Tank's Tots (formerly Jia Boys) tying for 2nd. After a tiebreaker question Got Here Late took 2nd place for this game as well. Here's a question that stumped everyone:
We received: Saint Patrick, Saint Valentine, Saint Paul, and Saint Crispin, but they were all incorrect. The correct answer was:
