 I t was a reserved end to the month of October, an intimate night at the Original Home of Trivia Club, surrounded by friends! Last Place Team continue their unbroken appearance streak with a twenty-second appearance in a row, and were joined by Rated T For Team for an entirely civil trivia war! Newcomers the Van Cats also joined in on the night, adding to the fun and unpredictability.

After the first round, the Last Place Team had a half point lead on The Van Cats, with Rated T for Team six points behind The Van Cats. In Game Show Games we then saw Rated T for Team blanked on Countdown Takedown, while their friends on the Last Place Team took the TOP TEN for their very own! The Van Cats kept close with eight points from the question. Survey Says saw the top ten missed out on, but Last Place Team hit six points, while Rated T for Team picked up four points, and the Van Cats were now blanked!

Then the night around to the C-C-Combo Breakdown portion, which proved as competitive as expected... as Rated T for Team were the first to fall, unable to unlock the pun behind the Shrek Christmas special... but Last Place Team DID in fact know it, Shreking The Halls for an additional SEVENTEEN POINTS!

With the Last Place Team in the lead heading into Tri-Pardo, we would have to see if those last four questions could make the difference! In Tri-Pardo, Rated T for Team were able to grab the twenty point question, for a great boost, but both The Van Cats and the Last Place Team got the first and third question correct for thirty points! This put the Last Place Team into an impressive position heading into the Finale, but their competition on the night were still very much within range! The Van Cats went all in! Rated T for Team went all in, save for one point... and the Last Place Team left sixty points on the board, which pushed them past Rated T for Team if they got it correct, but if all teams got the Finale correct, then The Van Cats would instead be the winning team!

Fittingly though, the only team to get the Finale correct... was our winning team... the LAST PLACE TEAM, who won their FIFTH GOLDEN VHS CHAMPIONSHIP!


The Last Place Team are the 19th team to join the Five Timers Club, doing so in their first 294 days as Trivia Club participants! This puts them in good company with Team Name, who were able to join the club in the exact same amount of time! The Last Place Team also extend their Iron Team streak (with the Iron Man streak still belonging to PETE!, natch), with a twenty-second consecutive appearance!
Congrats once to Last Place Team, whose Major League VHS will no go on the mantel beside Office Space, Total Recall, Robocop, and Highlander! Thank you as well, to all the wonderful folks who come out each and every Wednesday night at our Original Home of Cardinal Rule! We'll see you all again NEXT WEDNESDAY, once again brought to you by Amsterdam Brewery!
