  • .5 – 2 In The Pink, 1 In The Think defeated the field of three other teams, who finished with zero points @ Hi#017 on May 26th, 2014, and also set the record for the lowest total points for a winning team.

  • .5 –  Chillasaurus with 1.5 points defeated Last Place Team with one point @ CR#239 on November 8th, 2017.
TIES
  • CO-WINNERSSPARTACUS and Sailor Mercury’s Boobs are the only teams to ever tie, in victory, and share a Golden VHS. They did so at the second ever Trivia Club in May of 2012.
  • ALL-WAY TIE - CR#049 was the first time that the entire field tied after the Trivia Finale, and a tie-breaker was used, which the Cunning Stunts were the only team to answer correctly.
  • SUDDEN VICTORY - LD#081 was the first time that two teams had tied, tied again on the fifth question tiebreaker, and forced the Sudden Victory Box Office Bulls-eye! (647) 241 – 2325 (Lt. Dance) and The Electric Mayhem (Kevin, Matt, Pete, & Nish) each scored 132 points in the Finale, then both went all in with 20 tie-breaking points on the Fifth Question, and finally with the Sudden Victory Bulls-eye, Electric Mayhem were within 19 million of the actual Box Office of 2012’s Sherlock Holmes, while (647) 241 – 2325 were within 8 million... for the Golden VHS win!
  • TIE-SNATCHERS - LD#113 saw Lt. Dance once again tied up with a team at the end of the night! This time, The True Believers (Lt. Dance's Colm & Anthony), who scored 76 points in the Finale alongside The Schmeg$, needed only the Fifth Question tie-breaker for the Golden VHS win (also, oddly enough, the second time they had won Snatch on Golden VHS)!
  • FIRST & ONE-HUNDRED AND THIRTY-SECOND -  CR#191 saw two teams in their first tie-breaker. For Ivanna Wynn it was their first night out at Trivia, while for Team Name it was their one-hundred and thirty-second! Both teams went all in with 20 tie-breaking points on the Fifth Question, and with Team Name getting the Fifth Question incorrect, newcomers Ivanna Wynn won their first Golden VHS with the correct answer!
GOIN’ PETE!
PETE! has won a Golden VHS at five separate locations (Cardinal Rule, Lou Dawgs, Handlebar, Hitch, and The Rec Room), or as part of The Bastards, SPARTACUS, Cunning Stunts, Pete & Krissy, SHARK (Attack), We H8 Brittany, the Asquith A’s, Smokey & The Bearded, and The Dime Beggars. Not only was he the first person to win a Golden VHS at four separate locations solo, he’s also the first person to win a Golden VHS solo! Also, other then select members of the Cunning Stunts (Mark P. and Dylan K.) or Electric Mayhem (Kevin M. and Matthew S.), PETE! is the only individual to have won more then 40 Golden VHS tapes either by himself or with a team!

GUEST HOSTS
For the first time since Trivia Club began in April 2012, that’s approximately 136 Trivia Club events, Russel Harder took a vacation and TWO Guest Hosts filled in. Mark Piggott at Cardinal Rule & Matt Smith at Lou Dawg’s. Matthew Smith has also later Guest Hosted another edition of Trivia Club, this time at Cardinal Rule.

LOCAL TROTTERS
Johnny & Sarah were the first team to win a Golden VHS at two different locations (Cardinal Rule, and Lou Dawgs BBQ), doing so as the Super Awesome Notorious Trivia All-Stars @ CR#009, and Matthew McConaugHEY Arnold @ LD#001.

ONE FOR ALL, ALL WITH TEN
For the first time in the version of Countdown Takedown, our Price Is Right-style Game Show Game in which teams have to guess a number connected to a specific question without going over, all competing teams chose the same number and thus all teams were awarded 10 points. It was a, potentially over confident, Team Name that set the pace for four other teams @ CR#182.

BEGINNERS LUCKY MONTH
MAY 2014 was the first month at Cardinal Rule wherein two first-time teams won the Golden VHS in the same month, with The Best Bloomin' Team winning @ CR#064 & The Burger Weaklings @ CR#065.

FIRST, FIVE, AND ONE-HUNDRED
Our first two locations to celebrate one-hundred events, Cardinal Rule and Lou Dawg's BBQ, both saw teams win their first Golden VHS at the event. Treasure Butt won CR#100, while We H8 Brittany won LD#100! If that wasn't enough symmetry for you, both teams won on the night of the Century Mark with a total of five points! To close the loop, Treasure Butt were on hand at LD#100 and finished as runners-up with a single point. Our third location to celebrate one-hundred events did not feature Treasure Butt, but it did see a team win their first Golden VHS at the location! Lt. Dance's Estelle Getty Lee won Hi#100, and did so with much more then five points.

THE MORGAN DYNASTY
The Morgan’s are not only the first family to win a Golden VHS separate from each other (to our knowledge) but they also did so at three consecutive events as part of Electric Mayhem @ CR#062, The West Philadelphians @ Hi#016, and the M. Night Shyam-Aliens @ LD#007, between May 7th and May 13th of 2014.

THE SUMMER OF MAYHEM
In August 2014, The Electric Mayhem won three out of the four weeks at Cardinal Rule, losing only the third of the four weeks by half a point to Team Name!

THE ONE IN ONE AND TWENTY-ONE
With their May 3rd, 2016 victory, Treasure Butt won their first Golden VHS @ LD#099 after twenty-one prior appearances, the first appearance being September 23rd, 2014 @ LD#022. Treasure Butt did however win twice, on their first two appearances, at Cardinal Rule in 2015.

THE TWO IN TWO AND TWENTY-TWO
Last Place Team took twenty appearances at Cardinal Rule before they won their first Golden VHS at their twenty-first event @ CR#174 on July 27th, 2016. Their first appearance was January 6th, 2016 @ CR#145. Their second Golden VHS? The very next Wednesday, at their twenty-second appearance on August 3rd, 2016.

TWO FOR TWO AT TWO
Lt. Dance began their Trivia Club legacy at Lou Dawg's at the 33rd edition of the show, under the name Popcorn Gallery, with a big win GoldenVHS win to end 2014! Three weeks later, at the first Lou Dawg's Trivia Club event of 2015, the 34th edition, they won their second Golden VHS in as many appearances, this time under the name Gmail Roulette! As impressive a way to start things off, as that was, on their first appearance at Cardinal Rule later in 2015, on July 29th they won the 124th edition at our Original Home, as The Best Friends Gang! It would take another 65 events, and 479 days, but on their second appearance at Cardinal Rule, this time known as Fantastic Beats and Where 2 Drop Them, Lt. Dance would win their second Golden VHS!

TRI AND TRI AGAIN
With their December 7th, 2016 victory Trivial Knowledge won their first Golden VHS @ CR#193 after thirty-seven prior appearances, the most appearances at a single location before a Golden VHS victory. With their first appearance at Trivia Club being May 13th, 2015, that is a total of 1 year, 6 months, and 24 days before breaking through to the Golden circle. Their second victory took place on July 12th, 2017, at CR#222, only 187 days later.

GRAND PRIX HOT STREAK
In 2017 the Cunning Stunts won three Golden VHS in one calendar week across two locations! Winning the March 29th Golden VHS at CR#207, the April 3rd Golden VHS at Hi#088 to begin the Grand Championship of our fifth season, and finishing off their week long hot streak with a third win on April 5th at CR#208 once again. In 2015 The Electric Bastards won four consecutive events over the course of three weeks across three locations, during the our third season's Grand Championship! The first win was at LD#047 on April 14th, followed the next day at CR#109 on April 15th. With the next weekly Lou Dawgs cancelled, the next win was April 22nd at CR#110, capped off the following Monday at Hi#039 on April 27th. Four in a row, and an almost consecutive row of Triple Crown wins.

THERE AND BACK AGAIN
The Man with the Candy was the third Golden VHS Champ in our time at Hitch, winning Hi#004 on October 28th, 2013. It was their second appearance, and though they had appeared at the first event as well, they would participate intermittedly afterwards. So much in fact, that they're SECOND Golden VHS win would not come until Hi#090, on May 1st, 2017... a full 3 years, 6 months, and 4 days after their first Golden VHS. This is the longest time between Championships.

HOW WE ROLL
With the 200th edition of Trivia Club at Cardinal Rule, we began what we call the Ico Era of Trivia Club! No longer would the three categories of the third round be worth 10, 15, and 20 points respectively, now a d20, or 20-sided die, or (as we enjoy calling it) an icosahedron would be rolled and THAT would decide the point totals of our three Tri-Pardo categories. These are the critical hits and misses.

  • CR#200 saw a 10 rolled for the first category, a 15 rolled for the second category, and a 20 rolled for the third question. Because of course that happened. Why wouldn't it? 
  • Trivial Knowledge was the first team to roll 20 two times, three times, and also to roll 20 and roll 1. 
  • CR#215 and Hi#098 are the two events with the highest rolled Tri-Pardo with two 20's rolled, and an additional 18 rolled for 58 potential points up for grabs of the possible 60 points available in the Ico Era's third round. None of the teams were able to answer all three questions correctly at CR#215.
  • Hi#098 saw the M. Night Shaym-Aliens earn the most points in a Tri-Pardo, getting all three questions correct for a total of 58 points. Five days prior at CR#231 saw Last Place Team earn the most points in a Tri-Pardo at Cardinal Rule, getting all three questions correct for a total of 56 points. The M. Night Shaym-Aliens however also have earned the most points in a Tri-Pardo at Cardinal Rule, with 57 points at CR#238.
