at The Rec Room Roundhouse 100: If only Alexa was here..., October 15th 2019 TRIVIA CLUB CHAMPS

October 17, 2019

One. HUNDRED. Events.

It's always an honor when we reach that three digit mark at a location. It means that Trivia Club has established a community that has allowed for kind of competition to support triple digits in events. The Rec Room Roundhouse joins Cardinal Rule, Lou Dawgs, and Hitch as the kind of location that holds a legacy within Trivia Club history. In the first fifty events The Rec Room had thirty-eight Champs... creating an atmosphere familiar in Trivia Club where anyone could win on the night. In the fifty events since then... ten new teams have won. Though an unpredictable thread continues it's within a community that has grown a friendly rivalry amoungst the competition!

 Trivia Classic  came to an end in The Hall with The Questionables in the lead, on their forty-third appearance! Two and a half points behind were Cookiefaced, making their thirty-second event. Half a point behind Cookiefaced, on his thirtieth appearance, was Dead on the Inside who on this night was known as If only Alexa was here... (as a corporate event for Amazon was just next door)! G2 & the Vegan Bagels were in fourth place, just a half point ahead fellow first-time participants Room 7A to round out the Top Five (top five top five). Just three points outside of the Top Five were The Pink Ladies, followed by Panzstein, and the Loner from England who rounded out the first round of Trivia Club!

Round two saw the  Game Show Games  begin with what else but Countdown Takedown! Though Cookiefaced had the leaders advantage they under guessed, but still walked away with two points! Grabbing the TOP TEN in the Countdown was If only Alexa was here..., with eight points going to G2, and Room 7A picking up six points, while The Pink Ladies grabbed four points! This meant that Dead on the Inside had found himself in the lead, and kept that lead even though If only Alexa was here... picked up four points in our next game, Survey Says! Getting the TOP TEN in Survey Says were Panzstein! Also grabbing a TOP TEN as we had our first double question night at The Rec Room in quite some time, were G2 & the Vegan Bagels! In fact the only team left pointless were Room 7A!

The night then turned to round three,  Tri-Pardo ! The Loner from England rolled six points for the first question, while If only Alexa was here... rolled nineteen points on the second question, and Cookiefaced rolled fourteen points on the third question! All together thirty-nine points were now in play! Hitting for the triple were are three regular teams, The Questionables, Cookiefaced, and If only Alexa was here...
This kept Dead on the Inside's Alexa in the lead, and with wagering for the  Trivia Finale  he put seventy points on the line, keeping eight and a half points back! The Questionables, going all in could not give them the win but it did only out a point and a half between themselves and first. Wagering all but one of their sixty-nine points were Cookiefaced, hoping for the kind of luck in the last question that you sometimes need to win that threepeat, possibly only the second threepeat at The Rec Room! Ultimately only three of the eight teams would answer the Finale correctly... and that did not include each of the top three teams before the Finale turn.

Finishing as runners-up were Cookiefaced, who finished with 137 points, but were blocked from their threepeat! Winning on the night, and joining first time winners at Cardinal Rule, Lou Dawgs, and Hitch respectively, Treasure Butt, We H8 Brittany (ft. PETE!), and Lt. Dance... was not a first time winner, but someone who had won their first Golden VHS since mid-June, at the 83rd edition of Trivia Club in The Roundhouse! Now a SIX-TIME GOLDEN VHS CHAMPION... IF ONLY ALEXA WAS HERE...! Dead on the Inside's last win was also on the edge of a threepeat, and it was a chance at a threepeat that was ended by The Questionables who would go on to fourpeat beginning with that win! The 100th edition always finds time for a game underdog, it would seem.

Congrats once again to If only Alexa was here..., also known as Dead on the Inside, and thank you to everyone who came out to compete both tonight and across everyone of our first one-hundred events! We'll see you NEXT TUESDAY and most every Tuesday after that for another edition of Trivia Club at The Rec Room Roundhouse!
