January saw out return to Hitch after too many weeks away, indeed! Our Black Label location held its 139th event, and its first of 2019 this past Monday and brought back all the familiar competitors at our longest running location! 

 Trivia Classic  finished with a tight race, as the Fighting Mongooses returned to defend their 2018 ending, extra Festive, win at Hitch and held a slight one and a half point lead on our bar team of Wookiee Crisp at that! This Wookiee of the New Year had a slight one and a half point advantage of their own on The Good Folks from Laramie Cigarettes! Rounding out the field, larger then the solo team usually behind the name were The Sinking Ship, four and a half points behind The Good Folks!

 Game Show Games  saw The Good Folks from Laramie grab the TOP TEN in Countdown Takedown, while Wookiee Crisp followed it up with the TOP TEN in Survey Says! Wookiee Crisp would prove their game was on point as the last team standing in an especially tough Combo Breakdown for an extra five points!

This meant that heading into  Tri-Pardo  it was our bar team with the lead! Wookiee Crisp got the first category as well and rolled seven points! Fighting Mongooses rolled the second category for six points! Finally The Sinking Ship rolled the third category for ten points! This meant that twenty-three points were on the line! It was a dangerously third round however as only The Good Folks would come out in the positive with six points! This meant that they had found themselves in the lead heading into the Finale as well!

In the  Trivia Finale , it would come down to the wording of it all, though The Good Folks had half a point advantage on the Fighting Mongooses if everyone got the answer incorrect... only two teams would find their Finale answer correct! Runners-up on the night were The Sinking Ship, while the GOLDEN VHS CHAMPS to open 2019 at our longest running location winning their SIXTEENTH GOLDEN VHS and fourteenth at Hitch... FIGHTING MONGOOSES!
