 I t was a frequent flyer night at our Original Home of Cardinal Rule, with three teams that have made at least fifty appearances on the west-end going question for question against one another, alongside relatively new faces to the fold (teaming with the bar, who truth be told have seen a thing or two)!

After the first round of Trivia Classic, it was certainly a head to head battle with Last Place Team grabbing the early lead with 25 points to there name. Just two points behind were a returning Team Name, ready to go head to head with a team that indeed shared a few similarities! Russell Hardest were making their third appearance at Trivia Club, making a good name for their good name in third, with Trivial Knowledge rounding out the field!

With gamesmanship in Game Show Games, Last Place Team grabbed the first TOP TEN in Countdown Takedown! They would also grab the second TOP TEN in Survey Says, while Russell Hardest and Trivial Knowledge also grabbed eight and six points respectively. Yes, after a tight first round, Last Place Team were stretching the lead in round two, and it continued when they took the Combo Breakdown for a SEVENTEEN point swing, while Team Name were the last team to break down with six points to their name of team.

This meant Tri-Pardo left Last Place Team in a position to hold their lead, if not build on it! The first question was worth 7 points, while the second question was worth 19 points, and the third question was 14 points to win or lose. Team Name hit for the triple and picked up all available 40 points in round three. Trivial Knowledge wasn't far behind, picking up an additional 33 points. They both picked up ground on Last Place Team, but the LPT still held the lead with 26 in the third!

With the Finale ahead of them, Last Place Team looked to solidify their win and set a new personal best high score. And they could, just as long as they could get the Finale correct…
Team Name 23 8 0 6 40 (75) 152
Last Place Team 25 10 10 17 26 (85) 173
Trivial Knowledge 12.5 4 6 0 33 (55.5) 0
Russell Hardest 17 6 8 3 5 (38) 1
Which they did! Team Name finished as runners-up, crossing the Sesquicentennial Mark for the fourth time, finishing with 152 points! With 173 points, winning their NINTH Golden VHS… LAST PLACE TEAM! As mentioned, their ninth VHS, Charles Bronson in Cold Sweat (Cold Sweat!) also set a new personal best for the team on their nineteenth consecutive appearance!
Congrats to Last Place Team, and thank you once again to every team that came out this past Wednesday! It was wonderful fun to have you at our Original Home of Cardinal Rule! 217 and going strong, the summer ahead, we'll see you NEXT WEDNESDAY for the next edition of Trivia Club!
