at The Rec Room Roundhouse: Cookiefaced, November 5th 2019 TRIVIA CLUB CHAMPS

November 07, 2019

It was the 103rd edition of Trivia Club at The Rec Room Roundhouse, and as we continued trivia competition and community in Toronto, we also began our first season of League play at The Rec Room! What League play means is that points will be awarded by your final standings on the night and will give you 5 points for first place, 4 points for second, 3 for third, 2 for fourth, and 1 for fifth, sixth, seventh, etc! The team with the most League Points at the end of the season will get a prize, to be determined, with this inaugural League coming to an end on December 17th in six weeks! Points on the night will be used as a tie-breaker, if League Points are even.

 Trivia Classic  came to an end with the returning Champs from last week, Murderinos in first place! Yes, they were back and they were certainly up for the test against our regular teams at The Rec Room, and speaking of those regulars, three and a half points off of first place were The Questionables, our winningest team at The Roundhouse. Half a point back from The Questionables were newcomers The Dream Team! Two points behind third, were Cookiefaced, our reigning Grand Championship Trivia Royalty for 2019 at The Roundhouse, who themselves had a point and a half lead on the Tom Cruise Enthusiasts! In sixth place were The Team Who Shall Not Be Named, just half a point outside of the Top Five (top five top five)! Next in the standings were the Illuminat-EYE, followed by Broken B, who themselves had the lead on Quiz in my Pants!!! and Booty Enthusiasts. Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry, also known as Dead on the Inside, had some ground to make up on the top of the standings, but they weren’t the furthest away from the lead as that honor went to the Latin Lovers (but hey, they had love)!

 Game Show Games , with the large field in the Three10 space, shifted to a written format and thus also shifted the formatting of one of the games! Countdown Takedown stayed relatively the same though with a blind guess as teams did not know who guessed what! The Team Who Shall Not Be Named gained the TOP TEN, while The Dream Team grabbed eight points, Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry picked up six points, Cookiefaced gained four points, and The Questionables also made a couple of good points! Survey Says then shifted into a wider range of teams able to pick up the TOP TEN, as Cookiefaced, The Questionables, Hear My Cry, Murderinos, Broken B, and the Team Who Shall Not Be Named all guessed the number one answer correctly, while Tom Cruise Enthusiasts and The Dream Team picked up six points after guessing the number three answer correctly!

 Tri-Pardo  then gave us an opportunity to further separate a competitive field before the Finale, which would tonight prove tough indeed, but with Murderinos rolling the big die for fourteen on the first category, Roll of Thunder rolling for eighteen on the second category, and the Team Who Shall Not Be Named rolling for sixteen points on the third category that meant that a big forty-eight points were up for grabs! Hitting for the big triple was Murderinos, who brought their point total to seventy-nine points and kept their lead! Gaining thirty-two points form the first and second questions were Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry, as well as Broken B and the Team Who Shall Not Be Named! Gaining points from the first and second questions but losing points on the third were Cookiefaced and the Tom Cruise Enthusiasts who gained sixteen points a piece! The Questionables would gain points on the second question, but lose points on the third, for a net of two points.

This would lead the field to a  Trivia Finale  it which wagering was big, but the correct answer was bigger! Ultimately Dead on the Inside’s Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry would not wager anything and would end up runners-up as a result, as only two teams across the field would answer the last question correctly! Murderinos would be one of the teams felled on their return Finale and would not win back to back gold VHS to begin their Trivia Club story! The Questionables would also be felled by the Finale, but with keeping a point and a half back would finish in fifth. Underwagering but answering the Finale correct would be The Dream Team, who finished in third. Finally, the other team to answer that last question correctly…

Winning their ELEVENTH GOLDEN VHS and on the eleventh month of the year to boot, with 90 points to end the night, COOKIEFACED! They also grab the first five League points, while Dead on the Inside get four, The Dream Team get three points, Tom Cruise Enthusiasts get two points, and The Questionables, Murderinos, Broken B, and Team Who Shall Not Be Named get one point.

Congrats once more to Cookiefaced, and thank you to everyone who came out to compete at Trivia Club this past Tuesday! A post-event schedule change is that we will NOT HAVE TRIVIA CLUB NEXT TUESDAY, but will return on Tuesday, November 19th! See you across Canada on the 12th, and again in Toronto on the 19th!
