On yet another competitive night of Trivia Club at our Original Home of Cardinal Rule, teams were tested, teams were introduced, and a team that worked so hard to win their first Golden VHS... looked to repeat!

Last Place Team, our returning Champions, had the top score after the first round! They held a three point advantage over fellow west-side mainstays the M. Night Shaym-Aliens! Rounding out the intimate field in the first round were 3 Bitches and a Dick!

Entering during round two of Game Show Games, were the Electric Mayhem! Fresh from a Toronto FC win they were ready to compete! Countdown Takedown, saw the Mayhem pick up their first eight points, while the M. Night Shaym-Aliens grabbed the TOP TEN! The Shaym-Aliens grabbed another TOP TEN right after that in Survey Says, while Last Place Team added another eight points! The only team not to gain any Survey Says points were the 3 B's and a D! The competition then rounded around to C-C-Combo Breakdown... which saw Last Place Team outlast the field for SEVEN POINTS! Playing it safe, even with a few potential combos to add to the breakdown, Last Place Team walked out to the second round with an additional point over the Shaym-Aliens!

We then rounded to Tri-Pardo, which saw 3 B's and a D lose ten points, and the Electric Mayhem (looking to win their first Golden VHS since they threepeated to begin March) gain ten points, while the Last Place Team and the M. Night Shaym-Aliens both gained thirty points and with that, Last Place Team kept an ever slimmer four point lead on the M. Night Shaym-Aliens rounding into the Finale! In the Finale, it was was all the more dramatic as the Shaym-Aliens went all in, but the Last Place Team left enough at the table to be the last team standing if all teams got the answer wrong... while losing the advantage to the Shaym-Aliens, and giving the Electric Mayhem a window to win if the top two teams on the night got the Finale incorrect!

However, it was only the M. Night Shaym-Aliens who zigged when they should have zagged, and one week after winning their first VHS in twenty-one appearances, the LAST PLACE TEAM are suddenly repeat champs winning their SECOND GOLDEN VHS in twenty-two appearances! In the process they notched a new team high score mark, with 138.5 points! Ever competitive, the Electric Mayhem finished as runners-up.

Congrats once again go to the Last Place Team, hopefully you hadn't gotten used to how the Championship felt last week because it's not over yet! Thank you as well to the wonderful teams who came out to compete, and who add so much to Trivia Club each and every week. We'll see you again NEXT WEDNESDAY for more trivia goodness!
