It was the first SNOW DAY of the new winter season, with Hitch bringing you a nice toasty warm night of Trivia Club! For our 157th edition of Trivia Club at the Black Label location of Canada’s Greatest Game Show, we were joined at our longest-running location by the faces you would come to expect, as well as returning Grand Champions, and even faces from our past on the west end! Who would win the Nickelodeon classic, golden on the outside but orange on the inside, Snow Day?!

 Trivia Classic  came to an end with a competitive field tightly knit, as former Hitchens Cup winners Smartly Pretty made their return for the first time since the Chase for the Golden VCR in April to Hitch! On this night Matt & Pat were known as Auto-Erotic As-Quiz-iation, and held a seven-point lead on the nearest competitors the reigning Hitchens Cup winners the Frosty Mongooses, who themselves were making their fifty-second consecutive appearance! On this night with their sixtieth appearance overall, the Mongooses have also made more appearances at Hitch then the Trusty Rumpets, giving them the third most appearances in the history of Trivia Club at Hitch behind only Wookiee and The Good Folks! The Mongooses were only half a point ahead of the Good Folks from Laramie Cigarettes, who held a point and a half lead on Scott’s Tots! Scott’s Tots were former competitors at Cardinal Rule, who had gone by such names as Lowered Expectations back in 2015 and 2016! Two points behind them were Wookiee Harrelson to round out the Top Five (top five top five) which had fewer points between second and fifth, then first and second!

 Game Show Games  then saw Auto-Erotic As-Quiz-iation strengthen their lead with the TOP TEN in Countdown Takedown, while Good Folks from Laramie Cigarettes gained an advantage with eight points sliding into second against the Frosty Mongooses who picked up six points. Then in Survey Says, the TOP TEN proved out of reach, but Frosty Mongooses grabbed the eight point answer to regain second place, while Scott’s Tots grabbed six points, Wookiee Harrelson nabbed four points, and As-Quiz-iation made a couple of good points!

Then in  Tri-Pardo  we saw Wookiee Harrelson roll the first category for ten points, while Scott’s Tots rolled the second category for eleven points, finally Frosty Mongooses rolled the third category for twenty points, making for a two-thirds traditional Pardo round, with a total of forty-one points up for grabs! Though no team hit for the triple, Wookiee Harrelson swung into second place with a thirty-one point round from the second and third questions! Auto-Erotic As-Quiz-iation were able to keep their now four point lead however with twenty points to give them sixty-nine (nice) points after three rounds. Gaining twenty points but losing eleven were both the Good Folks and the Mongooses, for a nine point total in the third round. Scott’s Tots were able to shift into fourth place, half a point ahead of the Good Folks with an eleven point answer on the second question however!

This then brought us to the  Trivia Finale  which gave a potential turn to the night as wagering on what proved to be a tough last question of the night meant that really anyone could win the Golden VHS on this snowy night! Finishing as runners-up, in fact, with three points were the winners from two weeks ago the Frosty Mongooses! Our champs on the night however were the only team to answer that last question correctly!

With 138 points (doubling up on that 69 points, nice), winning their ninth Golden VHS in fourteen events at Hitch, making them the lone fifth winningest team in the history of the location, and making them a TWELVE-time GOLDEN VHS CHAMP overall… Smarty Pretty, on this night known as AUTO-EROTIC AS-QUIZ-IATION!

Congrats once more to Smartly Pretty, or Auto-Erotic As-Quiz-iation, and thanks again to everyone who came out to join us on this chilly and snowy on the outside but warm and toasty on the inside, edition of Trivia Club at our longest running location! We will be back in TWO WEEKS on November 25th for the antipenultimate edition of Trivia Club at Hitch for 2019!
