Annual Championship Week for Trivia Club came to an end, not with an annual event but with a return after a little more then a month away, to The Ace! Yes, it was more then enough time from our newest home of Trivia Club, for the thirteenth event at our late night lo-fi establishment! We had a return competitor from this week, and well as even more familiar Trivia Club faces, to bring together a wonderfully competitive collection of participants!

 Trivia Classic  came to an end with 2 Fast 2 Curious leading after the first round! Yes, the team formerly known as Last Place Team, and all-time high scorers at The Ace, had a one point lead on our Trivia Club house team on the east end once again making their way out west, the Fighting Mongooses! In third place after the first were the returning Bill Murray's Receding Hairline! Which is not to say the hairline of Bill Murray is returning, but the team also known as Krang's Abs and Pizza Day! and also alumni of Chillasaurus, were making their fifth appearance at The Ace for trivia! One point behind them were were Lovers In A Dangerous Time, with Riley and Tom, the name on this night for Lt. Dance's Anthony and Gabe, rounding out the Top Five (top five, top five)! Rounding out the field finally, were Love Machine!

Our second round of  Game Show Games  saw our teams shuffle for the lead, with Lovers In A Dangerous Time grab the TOP TEN in Countdown Takedown, while Bill Murray's Receding Hairline nabbed the TOP TEN in Survey Says, with the Fighting Mongooses getting enough points from the first two Game Shows to take the lead from 2 Fast 2 Curious, heading into Combo Breakdown! It was a Can Con kinda Combo Breakdown, and musicians from both sides went head-to-head as 2 Fast 2 Curious and Bill Murray's Receding Hairline took the prize of the year to this point in longest Combo Breakdown... and boy was the ending dramatic, as Bill Murray's Receding Hairline outlasted 2 Fast 2 Curious, and then doubled up on their Combo to nab TWENTY POINTS as last team standing, taking the lead for themselves as well!

 Tri-Pardo  then saw Bill Murray's Receding Hairline roll for twelve points on the first question, while Lovers In A Dangerous Time rolled for fourteen points on the second question, and finally Riley and Tom rolled another fourteen points on the third question! This put a potential forty points on the line in round three! It would prove a turner point for what was up until now a tight night points-wise, with Bill Murray's Receding Hairline losing twenty-right points, while both the Fighting Mongooses and Riley and Tom lost twelve points! 2 Fast 2 Curious however would gain twenty-six points, avoiding the third question but answering the first and second correctly!

This suddenly put 2 Fast 2 Curious into the drivers seat heading into the  Trivia Finale , and though they went all-in on their wager, the field would have to have some luck on their side and have their opponents get the answer incorrect while they answered correctly... because one team would only be able to take home their first Golden VHS of September 2018 (yes, even the Mongooses, who had experienced a tough Hitchens Cup run)!

Ultimately the Fighting Mongooses would have to settle for runner-up, as they were one of the two teams to answer the Finale correctly, and finished the night with fifty-eight points! With 145 points however, and winning their second VHS at The Ace, and their FIFTEENTH GOLDEN VHS CHAMPIONSHIP overall... 2 FAST 2 CURIOUS!

 ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED : FIFTEEN-TIMERS CLUB!

2 Fast 2 Curious, the team FKA LPT, are the twelfth team to win at least fifteen Golden VHS tapes and join the most recent team to do so just last Monday, The Good Folks from Laramie Cigarettes! The next closest team, likely not surprisingly, with 13 VHS wins are the Fighting Mongooses. 2 Fast 2 Curious are also six appearances away from being just the sixth team 100 appearances at Trivia Club!
