The third last edition of Trivia Club at Hitch for 2018 saw both familiar teams return and also newcomers enter the field! Who might walk away from the 136th edition of our Black Label location with the Golden VHS?

Leading  Trivia Classic , our first round, were the Fighting Mongooses! Our returning Golden VHS winners held a four and a half point advantage on the Good Folks from Laramie Cigarettes, who were in second place and sticking around for the winter after a summer away! A point behind were Old Milwookiee, followed by newcomers The Swingerzzz, and rounding out the Top Five (top five, top five) The Sinking Ship!

This meant that  Game Show Games  held potential for the game to turn, and first up Old Milwookiee would almost nail the Countdown Takedown for the TOP TEN! The Swingerzzz would also get eight big points! Then in Survey Says it was The Swingerzzz with the TOP TEN, while Laramie Cigarettes nabbed eight points! Heading into the Combo Breakdown, the Mongooses who Fight still held the lead, but Laramie Cigarettes were close behind, with The Swingerzzz now hot on their tale! In the Combo Breakdown, Old Milwookiee would grab ten points but would finish third. Ultimately the Fighting Mongooses would outlast the Good Folks from Laramie Cigarettes, and decide not to double their Combo but still earn fifteen points as the last team standing!

With all that settled, the Fighting Mongooses brought their lead into  Tri-Pardo  but the night was far from over! The first question was chosen by Old Milwookiee and rolled for four points, while The Swingerzzz chose the second question and The Good Folks chose the third question and both teams rolled for TWENTY! This meant that forty-four points were up for grabs, naturally. The four points proved some of the hardest however as The Swingerzzz and Good Folks would answer the first question correctly, while everyone else lost points. The field would also lose points on the second or third questions, either cancelling out big points or digging a deeper hole! Save for Old Milwookiee! They took a swing on the second question, and though the first lost them points the net result saw Old Milwookiee in the lead before the Finale question!

In the  Trivia Finale , the unpredictability was not over as not only would Old Milwookiee get the last question incorrect but so would the second place team heading into the Finale, our newcomers The Swingerzzz! This meant that it came down to a familiar face off between The Good Folks from Laramie Cigarettes and the Fighting Mongooses! Though the Fighting Mongooses did have enough points to win by a single points... they did not go all in! This meant that winning on the night, by burning it down...

Winning their SIXTEENTH GOLDEN VHS and fourteenth at Hitch... THE GOOD FOLKS FROM LARAMIE CIGARETTES! Congrats to the Good Folk, Arnis, and thank you once again to everyone who came out to compete at our early November edition of the Greatest Game Show in Ontario!
