at The Rec Room Roundhouse: We Showed Up For 8!, February 5th 2019 TRIVIA CLUB CHAMPS

February 06, 2019

It was another excellent night of Trivia Club at The Rec Room Roundhouse this past Tuesday, with the upper-level of the Three10 restaurant playing host to a wide array of competitive teams for a night of game show goodness that took a number of twists and turns, and decided who walked away with Some Like It Hot!

 Trivia Classic  came to an end with a three-way tie at the top of the standings, as returning Golden VHS champs Suck It Trebek were neck-and-neck-and-neck with Vaccines Cause Adulthood, and The Areola Grandes! Rounding out the Top Five (top five top five) were Berfday! (happy happy) and former champs We Show Up For 8! After the exclamatory teams were familiar faces Palliative Erotica and friends of the Grandes, I Thought This Was Speed Dating… with Triple A rounding out the field!

Berfday! then led off the  Tri-Pardo  round with a two point roll on the first category, while The Areola Grandes followed that up with a nineteen point roll on category number two! Finally We Show Up For 8! rolled eight on the third category! Twenty-nine points were on the line, and luckily that second category was gettable in a way that evened out the difficulty of the first and third! All teams gained nineteen points, while We Showed Up For 8! added on another ten points (being the only team to get the third category correct), while I Thought This Was Speed Dating... and our newest Team With No Name lost those ten points, and the other teams had varying success or kept their winnings simply at nineteen!

This led to a  Trivia Finale , wherein We Showed Up For 8! knew they needed to go all-in to risk Suck It Trebek catching them, though We Showed Up left two on the board while Suck It Trebek left one on! All other teams went either all in, or hedged their bets and tried their luck with a zero wager… hoping for the downfall of the field, with Palliative Erotica having the edge on Berfday! by three points, if all teams were to answer incorrectly!

When the dust settled, and the answers in the positive… WE SHOWED UP FOR 8! had won their SECOND GOLDEN VHS in four appearances, ending the night with 90 points and besting the team that won against them the week before, as Suck It Trebek finished as runners-up!
