at The Rec Room #50!!!: Suck It Trebek, October 2nd 2018 TRIVIA CLUB CHAMPS

October 03, 2018

FIFTY events at The Rec Room Roundhouse, and we are only just beginning with Trivia Club! Following up our first anniversary celebration in The Hall, which saw our first Royalty at The Rec Room crowned, we were more then happy to follow-up festivities with a nice big round number at The Rec Room! Our fiftieth event at The Rec Room saw new teams and returning teams, and a competitive night of questions go all the way down to the wire!

 Trivia Classic  came to an end with a tie atop the leader board, with Quiztopher Knowlans neck and neck with Yak Attack! Two points off the lead, in third, were Jacket Off, who themselves had a point advantage on Suck It Trebek. One point behind Suck it Trebek was Okay, Terrific! to round out the Top Five (top five, top five), while Ryders rounded out the field just two and a half points off of fifth!

 Tri-Pardo  then saw Ryders roll for three points on the first question, while Quiztopher Knowlans rolled for nine points on the second question, and finally Yak Attack roll for TWENTY on their second of three attempts! This meant that thirty-two points were on the line in round two at The Rec Room! Jacket Off would gain three points, while Ryders and Yak Attack would both gain twelve points, while three teams, Quiztopher Knowlans, Suck It Trebek, and Okay, Terrific! would all hit the triple and gain thirty-two to bring those three teams into the lead before the Finale!

The  Trivia Finale  saw most teams go all-in, with Quiztopher Knowlans looking to gain their first Golden VHS and holding their fate in their hands, while Suck It Trebek would have to balance knowledge and luck while leaving one point on the board. One point was all that was needed against Okay, Terrific! but of course the margin of error was razor thin!

When the dust cleared on our FIFTIETH EVENT... the winners on the night would win their THIRD GOLDEN VHS in ten appearances, with 87 points to their name, SUCK IT TREBEK! Runners-up on the night were in fact Yak Attack, one of only three teams along with our night's Champs and Jacket Off, to answer the last question correctly!
