It was a cold Wednesday night at Farside that brought out a wonderfully competitive group of teams! For the twenty-seventh edition of questions at the warm and Friendly Neighbourhood 'side, all teams were returning, and ultimately looking for victory!

 Trivia Classic  shook out, proving just how competitive the night would be, with both 2 Fast 2 Curious and the Fighting Mongooses tied for the lead! Three points behind them were the returning Fuck Billy Zane, and three points behind them were the returning Brewers Yeast Infection! Though the Fighting Mongooses and 2 Fast 2 Curious were notable for their number of appearances throughout 2016, 2017, and 2018, it was not for nothing that Fuck Billy Zane were making their third consecutive appearance at Farside, while Brewers Yeast Infection had made almost as many appearances as the Fighting Mongooses at our Friendly Neighbourhood location at Gerarrad and Broadview.

 Game Show Games  then began a consistent shake up of the standings on this night, as our first game Box Office Bullseye saw Brewers Yeast Infection get five points, while 2 Fast 2 Curious grabbed two points! Maybe staying to true to their name, 2 Fast 2 Curious grabbed another two points in Survey Says, while Fuck Billy Zane nabbed the TOP TEN! Though the Fighting Mongooses had found themselves in the lead for Countdown Takedown, Fuck Billy Zane would grab another TOP TEN and the lead, to head into our third round!

 Tri-Pardo  saw Fuck Billy Zane with 46.5 points, the Fighting Mongooses with 43.5 points, Brewers Yeast Infection with 42.5 points, and 2 Fast 2 Curious suddenly in fourth after unfriendly Games with 37.5 points! Still, the night was far from over! The Fighting Mongooses rolled five points for the first category, Fuck Billy Zane rolled seventeen points for the second category, and Brewers Yeast Infection rolled thirteen points for the third question! All total, thirty-five points were on the line! The Fighting Mongooses would add seventeen points from the first question, while Brewer's Yeast would grab twenty-two points off the first and second questions, but Fuck Billy Zane would keep their lead heading into the Finale, with points from the second and third questions, even after 2 Fast 2 Curious hit for the triple to bring the team into second place, just four points off the lead!

Our  Trivia Finale  on this night saw the most points left on the table by the Fighting Mongooses, who left six behind to hedge his bets. Fuck Billy Zane had only half a point left behind however because hey... why not? Winning by seven and a half points, ahead of the runner-up 2 Fast 2 Curious, the team that had defeated them two weeks prior... with 152 points, making them the forty-seventh team to cross the Sesquicentennial Mark, for their FIRST GOLDEN VHS... FUCK BILLY ZANE!
