 T wo weeks after a record-setting night of high scores, we returned to Hitch to pit the best teams on the east-end against visitors, against new faces to see who might walk away with the Golden VHS!

When Trivia Classic was said and done, it was a broad slate of potential, with Tiny Tim's Tragi-Comic Transient Totalitarian Tyrant-Topplng Titty Ticklers owning the lead though not too far behind the recombined forces of Tim (yes, with half of Girls Gon Get It), were the visiting M. Night Shaym-Aliens celebrating Joel Day 2K17! Happy Joel Day, Monday! The Good Folks from Laramie Cigarettes were in third place, with Wookiee of the Year in fourth, and newcomers Team 309 in fifth, while the returning Japolski rounded out the field!

Game Show Games then brought a mix of results to the forefront, with Wookiee of the Year grabbing the first TOP TEN in Countdown Takedown, while Tiny Tim's... grabbed eight points with a cagey wager, and all other teams were shut out. Then in Survey Says, it with Japolski with the TOP TEN, with the only team being shut out being the Good Folks from Laramie Cigarettes! Laramie would not gain any more luck, as a back and forth C-C-COMBO BREAKDOWN battle between the Folks and the Wookiee ended on the wire, with Wookiee of the Year grabbing another NINETEEN POINTS, bring their impressive round two total to 37 points!

In Tri-Pardo it was a mix of possibilities, with M. Night Joel Day grabbing five points, after the first question being answered incorrectly ate into the points of answering the second question correctly! With both the second and third questions correct, Wookiee of the Year and Tiny Tim's Tragi-Comic Transient Totalitarian Tyrant-Topplng Titty Ticklers each gained thirty-five points, which still left Wookiee with the four and a half point advantage on their rivals. The biggest mover however, with a clean triple and an additional forty-five points to his name, was the Good Folks from Laramie Cigarettes!

So in the Finale, Laramie had brought himself within thirteen and a half points of the leaders, Wookiee of the Year, and Tiny Tim's... were even closer behind. With an extra ten points from round two and three however, the M. Night Shaym-Aliens were furthest back and needed everything to go their way. On this Joel Day, however, it was not to be... as all teams got the Finale incorrect, but the last team standing when it was all said and done, always unpredictable with seven points on the board, and now the newest member of the Five Timers Club...

ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED: FIVE TIMERS CLUB!

THE GOOD FOLKS FROM LARAMIE CIGARETTES won his/their FIFTH GOLDEN VHS! Yes, he continues to be the second-winningest solo competitor in Trivia Club history other then PETE! Continuing the one-man legacy since PETE! went quiet with the Last Question at Lou Dawgs.
