 N umbers were in the air, as we brought our fourth night of Trivia Club to Farside! The newest home of the Greatest Game Show in Toronto also saw four teams on the night, but surprisingly it wasn't four that was the number on the night… but six!

 Trivia Classic  came to an end, and it was the Cunning Stunts making their first trip to our eighth ever location (the only location that they haven't visited being our first limited location, Wychwood Pub), and leading the field. Three points behind were the Fighting Mongooses, four-time Golden VHS Champs, looking to notch the rare feat of two wins in one week! Four points behind the Mongooses were newcomers Val Kilmer, and rounding out the field were another pair of newcomers NOFX.

 Game Show Games  began with Countdown Takedown seeing the Cunning Stunts put a little gamesmanship in play for the TOP TEN! Val Kilmer picked up eight points, while the Fighting Mongooses got six points. The Stunts notched another TOP TEN in Survey Says, while NOFX picked up eight points! Finally in Combo Breakdown, it was the Fighting Mongooses fighting back towards the lead with a FOURTEEN POINT swing as last team standing, while all the other teams were out with three to their names.

This then led to  Tri-Pardo , with the Cunning Stunts leading but the Fighting Mongooses not far at all behind! Val Kilmer rolled the first question for six points, while the Cunning Stunts rolled a traditional fifteen points for the second question, and the Fighting Mongooses rolled for nineteen points on the third question! This meant that forty points were up for grabs! The Cunning Stunts grabbed twenty-one points from the first and second questions, but the Fighting Mongooses grabbed twenty-five points from the first and third questions... bringing the Golden VHS Champs from Monday two points away from our winningest all-time Trivia Club team! Both gaining nineteen points were Val Kilmer and NOFX!

With the  Finale  of Trivia ahead, on the night, it was the Stunts with the slight advantage on the Mongooses and the field open behind them. The Stunts wagered all but one point, while the Mongooses left eleven points behind! Val Kilmer left five points behind, and NOFX went all-in! Ultimately with the Finale question, only one team would be tripped up in the Brouhaha... and that meant...

Winning their SIXTY-SIXTH GOLDEN VHS, and becoming the first team to win at SIX different locations (surpassing the M. Night Shaym-Aliens for most wins at different locations), going from sixty-six points... to one-hundred and thirty-one on the last question... the CUNNING STUNTS!
