Flavor Town has nothing on us at World of Beer - Ft Worth! We're here again with PubGuys Trivia playing some FREE trivia from 7 to 9 PM! Each week they're serving up some delicious tacos during their Taco Tuesday special, while I dish out the challenging questions for all attendees! There are two separate games, giving all players two chances to win a $25 (1st place) or $10 (2nd place) gift certificate to World of Beer! If you missed this week here's a summary of what happens EVERY week:
This time around we had Fish Tots and Got Here Late in the game, with newcomers Neco joining us as well. Every game there is a Themed Round for Round 2, and this week was no exception. The theme for this game's 2nd round was: Music makes the world go 'round, so all of the questions and answers that round referenced a band or individual musicians. In addition to the Themed Round each team is given a Visual Round as well, in which they are provided with a visual guide that is due at the end of Round 3 for a possible 10 bonus points. For the Visual Round this game the teams were given the covers of the 3rd book in a series, and they had to tell us what series the book came from.

Replacing the Visual Round from Game 1 we had the Kitchen Timer Bonus Round, in which each team is given a time limit to add 7-10 points to their final score. The question for the Kitchen Timer Round this week was:
Name the seven countries of the former Yugoslavia that didn't exist in their modern form until 1990 or later.
The final scores for Game 2 were much closer, with a 1 point difference between 1st, 2nd, and 3rd! Fish Tots ended up taking 1st place once again, with Got Here Late taking 2nd place over Neco. Here's a question that stumped everyone:
