This week's trivia at World of Beer - Ft. Worth with PubGuys Trivia had over 32 players, meaning no ants were in attendance. I sincerely hope that's the case every week, to be honest, since we ARE playing in a food establishment, but I digress. Once again we had a rousing game of FREE trivia, in which everyone in attendance had TWO chances to win a $25 (1st place) or $10 gift certificate to World of Beer - Ft. Worth! That's right: there are two games from 7 - 9 PM, with the scores reset in-between, so even if you can't make it to Game 1, Game 2 is always there in the wings, waiting. If you're curious about what goes down, here we go!
We had some big-time players this week, with some of our most winningest teams like Fish Tots, Jerk Store, and Got Here Late showing up for a trivia showdown. Coming back from last week we had Pop Quiznos joined by HELP, putting up a valiant effort against the trivia juggernauts. Each week there is a typically a Visual Round and a Themed Round for Game 1. This week, for Game 1 only, there actually was NO theme, so each team got a bonus point just for being their lovely selves (isn't that nice?). There still was a Visual Round, however, and that theme was: Movie Dragons. Each team was given a visual guide depicting various famous dragons, prompting them to name the movie the dragon came from for a chance at 10 bonus points.
In the end it was a three-point game between 1st, 2nd, and 3rd. Jerk Store took 1st place with a score of 24, with Fish Tots in 2nd at 23. Honorable mention goes out to Got Here Late in 3rd at 22. Here's a question that stumped everyone:
What Israeli ex-prime minister was sentenced to 6 years in prison for corruption in 2014?
There were a number of answers involving Netanyahu, but they were unfortunately incorrect. This question is so obscure I'm not surprised nobody got it, the correct answer was:
A few people joined between Game 1 and Game 2, taking the player count to 32, but the teams stayed the same (except for HELP changing to DON'T HELP). This time there was a Kitchen Timer Bonus Round instead of a Visual Round, and there was actually a Theme for this game's 2nd round as well! that Theme was: Birds of a feather, so all the questions and answers that round had something to do with birds. The Kitchen Timer Bonus Round that replaced the Visual Round from Game 1 gave each team a time limit to answer the following question, worth 10 points:
Alphabetically, what are the first ten of the seventeen modern-day countries in the area known as The Middle East?
When all the dust settled, we had Fish Tots taking over 1st place with another one point lead over Jerk Store, essentially flipping the winners from Game 1. Here's a question from Game 2 that stumped everyone:
In what country is Angry Bird producer Rovio based?
We may need to slip in more GEEKDOM themed questions, since nobody got this question correct. The most common answer was Japan, which was incorrect. It was actually:
With the weather getting nicer, and a cool refreshing beer waiting for you when you come on down, I don't see any reason NOT to join us at World of Beer - Ft. Worth with PubGuys Trivia!
