at The Rec Room Roundhouse: Hot Sauce on Duke's Hat, May 14th 2019 TRIVIA CLUB CHAMPS

May 15, 2019

We returned to The Hall at The Rec Room Roundhouse, for an expanded night of Trivia Club at our Flagship location just in time for the seventy-eighth edition of Canada's Greatest Game Show! With the third week of events across multiple provinces, who would rise to the occasion and take home the Golden VHS?!

 Trivia Classic  came to an end with a razor's edge of a finish, as Spring Pea Soup were in the lead by half a point ahead of two teams! Yes, this mostly new team were in the number one spot after round round, and half a point behind them were our house team at The Rec Room, now known as The Questionables (and who were returning Golden VHS Champs with the highest score in Canada last week), who were tied with Hot Sauce on Duke's Hat! A point and a half behind two teams in second were Meow Meow, table mates of Spring Pea Soup! Rounding out the field in fifth were Quiz In My Pants, a new team with a familiar name, and just outside of the Top Five (top five top five) were Mack's Bitches!

 Tri-Pardo  then saw the ol' Trebek team, The Questionables, pick the first category and roll nineteen followed by Quiz In My Pants rolling eleven on the second category and Meow Meow choosing the third category and also rolling for eleven! This meant that forty-one points were on the line, and though no team would hit for the triple Hot Sauce on Duke's Hat would pick up nineteen points on the first question, while The Questionables and Spring Pea Soup would stay in second and first overall by both getting the second and third questions!

This meant that heading into the  Trivia Finale  that The Questionables now had a three point advantage on Hot Sauce on Duke's Hat, but Spring Pea Soup had a half a point lead on their nearest competition for the outright lead! Though it was a thin lead, with the blind wager the new team only wagered 15 of their 51 points, while The Questionable wagered all but one and a half points! As it turns out, it paid not to go all-in on this night as the difficult Finale question saw only one team answer the last question correctly!

Finishing the night with one and a half points, The Questionables were now 16 points away from 1,000 points overall at Trivia Club, but on this night they finished in third! In the runner-up spot were Spring Pea Soup, tripped up on the last question! Winning their FIRST GOLDEN VHS however, now a rare case of first and gold at The Rec Room, were HOT SAUCE ON DUKE'S HAT with 62.5 points!

Congrats once more to Hot Sauce on Duke's Hat, and thank you again to all the teams who came out to enjoy some Trivia Club goodness at The Rec Room! We will see you again NEXT TUESDAY on May 21st as you continue to not only compete against teams in Toronto, but also those across Canada at The Rec Room!
