 A fter two weeks away, it was great to be back at our Home Away and yours, Hitch, to begin February! We brought back some wonderfully competitive teams, saw some family values, and also saw some new faces look to win their first Golden VHS at our east-end trivia location!

 Trivia Classic  saw the Fighting Mongooses with the lead after the first round, even with a late entry from half the team! Fam White Shaym-Aliens, those Hitchens Cup winners now with more of the White family, were in second place after the first round! Tied for third place were newcomers Emotional Support Peacock, and our bar team at Hitch, Wookiee of the Year! Rounding out the field were returning team Falconhead, tied with another group of newcomers The Hotline Operators!

 Game Show Games  began with a Countdown Takedown that saw the field blanked by a tough number, indeed! Survey Says then saw Wookiee of the Year pick up the first TOP TEN of round two, with Falconhead grabbing eight points, and Emotional Support Peacock grabbing four points! Combo Breakdown was then a head to head to head competition which finally saw the Fam White Shaym-Aliens as the last team standing, outlasting Emotional Support Peacock, for THIRTEEN POINTS!

Having taken the lead from Wookiee of the Year, who had took it from those Fighting Mongooses, Fam White Shaym-Aliens were locked in four round three of Trivia Club,  Tri-Pardo ! Falconhead would role the first question for one point, joining the short list of teams to have done so! The second question would be rolled for twelve points by Fam White Shaym-Aliens, and the third question would be rolled for fifteen points by The Hotline Operators! With twenty-eight points on the board, a chance for the field to double-up or more, it was anyones games... especially if they could hit for the triple! Hitting for the triple were two teams, newcomers the Emotional Support Peacock as well as the Fam White Shaym-Aliens! The Shaym-Aliens had a six and a half point lead on the Emotional Support Peacocks, and in third were the Fighting Mongooses, after gaining sixteen points from the first and third questions!

This all led to a  Finale  with all varieties of wagers on the board, from all-in and more then all-in, to the Fighting Mongooses keeping four points on the board, and the Fam White Shaym-Aliens wagering thirty points! The Fam had protected themselves if everyone got the Finale incorrect, but had also given away the win if everyone got the answer correct... the nigh was now Emotional Support Peacock's to win! This was no normal Finale question however, it proved though enough to see two teams left standing with the correct answer. Finishing as runners-up on the night were Falconhead, making their first appearance since Hi#106! The winners on the night?

With their FOURTH GOLDEN VHS, bursting back into the lead at the last question, past the rest of the field... the FIGHTING MONGOOSES! Their 74 points is also now the highest score for the team in a Golden VHS victory, though still half of their personal best high score!
