 W e return to Hitch for the 102nd edition of Trivia Club our Friendly Neighborhood weekly game show goodness on the east end! Hitch brought out an excellent mix of new faces and returning teams, and ensured that we would walk away with an all-new Golden VHS on the night!

Round one of Trivia Classic saw our house team on the east-end, The Good Folks from Laramie Cigarettes in the lead! A point and a half behind them in second place were Gettin' Quizzy Wid It, newcomers to Hitch and to the east-end! Past regulars from Another Round Trivia, they were game to test themselves at Trivia Club! Two points behind them were Wookiee of the Year, on both sides of the bar! Finally, rounding out the field were the family team, wonderful folks Ash Can!

Round two, our Game Show Games, then began with Countdown Takedown! The Takedown saw Ash Can taking a swing and a miss on the first guess, while Gettin' Quizzy Wid It got their first TOP TEN! The Good Folks picked up eight points, while Wookiee of the Year picked up six points! Survey Says then saw Ash Can grab that TOP TEN, while the Good Folks from Laramie took two points for themselves! It all wrapped up with a tricky Combo Breakdown, that saw Wookiee of the Year as the last team standing for THIRTEEN POINTS, out lasting the Good Folks from Laramie Cigarettes!

This meant that heading into Tri-Pardo, Ash Can would have to make up more ground on a tight three team race at the top that saw five points separating everyone else! The roll for the first category was worth ten points, the roll for the second category was worth sixteen points, and the roll for the third category was worth seventeen points! This meant that forty-three points were up for grabs in our third round! Ash Can were able to get the second and third questions correct, though were dinged for ten points on the first question! Getting the second and third question correct, avoiding the first question, were Gettin' Quizzy Wid It, the Good Folks from Laramie Cigarettes, AND Wookiee of the Year! This meant that heading into the Finale that yes, they were all three still separated by only five points.

For the Finale, wagering was surprisingly even with Ash Can leaving a point and a half behind, while Gettin' Quizzy Wid It and Wookiee of the Year each left a point on the board! The Good Folks from Laramie Cigarettes did math a little differently and took their space between the other two teams... and left a full fifty behind just in case! This paid off for Laramie Cigarettes, but only because in getting the answer incorrect they would finish in third place!

Getting the Finale question correct, and finishing in the runner-up spot on their first night out... Gettin' Quizzy Wid It! While, finishing ten point ahead of them, with 157 points on the night... the twenty-first member of the FIVE-TIMERS CLUB with their FIFTH GOLDEN VHS... WOOKIEE OF THE YEAR!
