 D evil's Night Trivia Club #103 at Hitch, was in the detail! It was an all-time kind of night for not one but three teams, with a costume award being handed out to those who earned it AND a returning team taking our Home Away by storm! Spooky!

 Trivia Classic  started things off with an entertaining round of questions capped off by an intense Royale, which saw Wookiee of the Year lead by pack by one and a half points over our Costume Award winners and most recent VHS winners at Hitch, participating on this night, the Fighting Mongooses! Four and a half points behind them were the West Virginia Losers Club, and rounding out the field with a still impressive total when all was said and done, were Team Rocket and The Ghouls!

Our second round of  Game Show Games  began with a Countdown Takedown that gave the Fighting Mongooses the lead with our first TOP TEN of the night, while the Losers Club picked up eight points! Team Rocket then picked up the TOP TEN in Survey Says, while Wookiee of the Year grabbed eight points, the WVLC nabbed six points, and the Fighting Mongooses picked up two points. Combo Breakdown then saw a wildly competitive back and forth from all sides, with the West Virginia Losers Club outlasting their closest competition in the Fighting Mongooses and picking up FIFTEEN POINTS and the lead, to head into round three!

Yes,  Tri-Pardo  would not be taking the coal out of the night's fire on this Devil's Night, as both the West Virginia Losers Club and the Fighting Mongooses hit for the TRIPLE, and picked up forty-nine points as a result! The first category had been rolled for eighteen points by the WVLC, the second category had been rolled for twelve points by Wookiee of the Year, and the third category had been rolled for nineteen points by the Fighting Mongooses! Wookiee of the Year picked up thirty points from the first and second category answers, while Team Rocket themselves grabbed twelve points!

On such a night, heading into the  Finale , it was then all on that Devil's Answer to see if the fifth team could cross the TWO-HUNDRED POINT total at Hitch! Yes, not only that but the unheralded West Virginia Losers Club were able to tie the all-time high score set pre-Ico Era by the Electric Mayhem! They were... but still new to the game, they left half a point on the board. When in doubt, leave something behind. Wookiee of the Year went all in, as did Team Rocket, while the Fighting Mongooses wagered twenty-five points even though they themselves were in range to also top 200, if not grab the second highest score of all-time.

All-time scores were set on this night. When the Finale flames finally went out, it was the Fighting Mongooses in third by with a personal best high score still, their first time across the 100 point mark, with 135 points. Wookiee of the Year crosses the Sesquicentennial Mark for the second week in a row, notching a new personal best as well of 175 points... but finished as runners-up! The winners?


Now with the High Score in the history of our Friendly Neighborhood bar, Hitch! Just half a point off of our All-Time High Score of Trivia Club... the WEST VIRGINIA LOSERS CLUB with 234.5 points! Not too shabby for their first win at Trivia Club, since competing as Ed Norton's Erection at our Birdman sponsored Cardinal Rule event on October 22nd, 2014, and first win at Hitch since competing at Hi#082 on January 9th, 2017, as Hidden Fences!

Fighting Mongooses 44 10 2 5 49 (25) 135
Wookiee of the Year 45.5 0 8 4 30 (87.5) 175
West Virginia Losers Club 39.5 8 6 15 49 (117) 234.5
