Tonight we celebrated bartender Alexis's birthday (Oct. 31) and got ready for Halloween with a special themed game. There was a great turnout for tonight's game and it was super competitive with lots of lead changes throughout the 5 rounds.
My weekly favorites:
In the end, team "Happy Birthday Alexis!!" won after very strong showings (near perfect) on the Audio and Candy rounds. They were able to hold on to their lead through The Final Countdown. Team "Who's Joe Mayo" snuck into 2nd Place on the final round and took home the $20 bar credit.
Thanks to all for playing!
Special Halloween themed questions tonight!
Free answer is: "silly string"
Tonight was an intimate but competitive game between 6 of our regular teams. We had two(!) "mitosis" questions and it was also the birthday of our favorite manager, Tony!
The rounds were:
After the game was done, two regular winners prevailed. First place went to "The New Originals" and second place went to "Yung Pervs". Congrats to our winners, thanks to the other players, and happy birthday, Tony!
Another Monday means another game of trivia. After scorching you all last week with some real stumpers, this week should be a bit more approachable.
We've got General Knowledge, Movies, a Picture Drinking Round, a round special to today, and The Final Countdown. And, as always, we'll have delicious beer on tap.
Tonight's hint is: "mitosis"
See you all at 8:30pm!
Tonight was the start of "Season 2" of our Doodad Trivia. Every game is a standalone competition but I do keep week-to-week rankings to see how your team does over time. Tonight's game was a very challenging match - the questions were hard but the teams stuck it out. (Sometimes the questions are hard... come back next week and we'll take it easy...)
Our winners tonight were "Just Hoppy To Beer Here", with the "New Originals" making a big push in The Final Countdown to finish up in 2nd place. There was a three-way tie for 3rd place.
The five rounds were:
The final standings were as follows:
The championship game was a very competitive match but after all the rounds were played, team Yung Pervs is our first champion! They are the winners of the 1st Place cash prize, trophy, and bragging rights until they have to defend their title in the next Champions' Game.
Congratulations to them and to the other teams for a great stretch of weeks. Don't forget you can start accruing points toward next Champions' Game starting next week!
Tonight will be the conclusion of the first “season” of Doodad Trivia and our first "Champions' Game".
The top 8 teams will face-off in a single game challenge to crown a champion. Other teams are welcome to come out and observe and/or play along, but tonight only the top teams will be scored. (Others can score themselves when we go over the answers).
The top 8 teams eligible for tonight's game are:
The first substitute: Doodad, Where Do You Get Your Pens?
The second substitute: We Thought This Was A Gay Bar
NOTE: If a team does not show up, the first substitute team will be eligible to play. It's like flying "stand-by". So if your team is right below the cutoff, you still have a chance to participate!
No teams will be allowed to sit outside. Other rules are same as usual. Full rules will be explained prior to starting the game.
This is a special reward to our most loyal teams. But we appreciate all of you and a new season will begin next week!
I will continue to keep all-time statistics for your participation in our weekly Doodad Trivia games, so keep coming back after this championship game to improve your overall stats and to start building stats toward the next champions game.
