The room was packed, we had 19 teams present. Everybody really wanted to prove themselves smarter than the other team – or maybe just maybe they wanted that bottle of alcohol. Not entirely sure, I know all I would want is the honor of…. Nah I can’t even type it with a straight face. I would play for the alcohol! Anyway, back to the rounds. We were going to have a guest round by Adrienne, but she was unable to make it. So Will did his magic trick and re-created a Space round from memory! A really nerdy round that made people go: oooooh! But most teams didn’t do that bad. For the four rounds by Josh, we had some literature, some recent history, a picture round and 80’s music! Before you all freak out about literature, calm down, it was all books about or for children. Okay, now you can freak out. The literature we have forgotten all the details in. Recent history, that pretty much explains itself although not sure everything Josh asked should be categorized as RECENT! The picture round was secret agents from TV-shows or movies. If you didn’t know the show/movie you wouldn’t get anything, but if you had the right show and knew the actor and character you had the chance to get lots of points. With 80’s music nothing could stop the dancing! Which continued at Pyro – both the dancing and the 80’s songs! Awesome awesome night.
Sample questions: For the sport nerds out there the Muhammed Alis fights shouldn’t have posed a problem. For the rest, “The Thrilla in Manila” was against Joe Frazier and “The Rumble in the Jungle” was George Foremann. The answer to the perhaps tougher question regarding Saturnalia is: The masters would serve the slaves! From this week’s quiz we are going back to childhood literature. Taj Lindman wrote children’s stories about Snipp, Snapp and Snurr, three boys who had adventures, and also Flicka, Ricka and Dicka, three girls who also had fun children’s adventures. The boys and girls were all distinctly from a certain European country, which one? And yes, those are their names. To pick the next sample question I had a little help from Alex Brown from Hot Tamales I’m sweatin’. He chose the following: Which famous musician turned to politics in 1995 and got himself elected to US Congress when he was upset over his inability to open a restaurant in Palm Springs, CA. He unfortunately passed away a few years later in a skiing accident?
Winners: By choosing the name “In for a week, in for a win” the guys really put pressure on themselves. The question was if they could live up to it. The answer was yes! They put on a good show and got 50,5 points! Kidney’s – with their slightly modified name (Kidney’s come and go, but fingers don’t) due to Ben’s little accident last week – were strong competition none the less and won 2nd place by scoring 48 points. Third place went to Turtles in Time! Not sure what that refers to, but they got beers for their 43.5 points. Well done everybody!!!
DON’T FORGET NEXT WEEK IS APRIL 10TH AND WE ARE DOING EXTRA SPECIALS IN HONOR OF LUSH’S 10TH ANNIVERSARY!!!!!
