at The Rec Room: Team Name, May 1st 2018 TRIVIA CLUB CHAMPS

May 03, 2018

It was game one of round two, not in the Trivia Club playoffs, no... in the NBA playoffs! As such, the trivia world at The Rec Room became something of a Jurassic Park on Tuesday night! Not only did we begin early at 7pm, but the later half of the night stretched through first half of the basketball game for an all new experience!

 Trivia Classic  saw Team Name returning for the first time in several months, to lead the field! Kung Foo Pandas weren't far behind in second, enjoying some candy as a result, with Trebeks Rejects and the Toronto Booze Jays rounding out the initial field.

In our second round of  Tri-Pardo , it was a whole different game as we lost two teams in the Pandas and the Booze Jays but gained FIVE other teams! Of those new teams, the 360s chose the first category and rolled eight points, S1 rolled five points in their first episode for the second category, and Quiz In My Pants rolled nine for the third category! This meant that one of the lowest point totals in Tri-Pardo, twenty-two points, were up for grabs! Hitting for the triple, and getting all three questions correct, were Team Name and the 360s! This meant that Team Name held an ever stronger lead on the pack, and the top second round newcomers the 360s, were only two points ahead of the third round all night competitors, Trebeks Rejects who had gained thirteen points from the first two questions but lost all but four on the third question!

In the  Trivia Finale , sensing the position of the field and having not won a Golden VHS since the 13th edition of Trivia Club at The Rec Room, Team Name learned from an earlier mistake in their last out and only went about half in, while the field leapt forward to catch up! It proved maybe the toughest question however... and even though some good guesses were forwarded nothing really landed, and thus...

Winning their TWENTY-FIFTH Golden VHS, and the fourth in eight appearances at The Rec Room, was TEAM NAME! They had held on throughout the night, and in doing so had become the fifth team to join the FIVE x FIVE TIMERS CLUB, along with the Cunning Stunts, Electric Mayhem, The Bastards, and the M. Night Shaym-Aliens!
