at The Rec Room Roundhouse: The Questionables, May 7th 2019 TRIVIA CLUB CHAMPS

May 09, 2019

In our second week of Trivia Club Canada-wide at The Rec Room, we returned to The Hall at  The Rec Room Roundhouse  for the seventy-seventh edition of Canada’s Greatest Game Show on May 7th! For this surprise occasion we were joined by a few new faces and a wide array of regular teams as well! Who would break through for that Golden VHS glory, and who would also be awarded our new Cineplex Gift Card prize as well?

 Trivia Classic  began with Team Name returning to take the first round lead on the field! They had a one point advantage on our second place team post-Classic, The Questionables! Formerly known as Suck It Trebek, a name meant with love and with enjoyment of a Saturday Night Live meme, The Questionables were trying something different, while still keeping our Jeopardy host in their hearts! In third place after the first, three points off the lead were returning Champs Cookiefaced! Half a point back from Cookiefaced were Jerry Superstar! The Integals rounded the Top Five (top five top five)! The Craic Is Mighty returned from a few months away, and were three and a half points away from fifth but two points ahead of Dead on the Inside, who were returning for the first time since their second Golden VHS, as Settling For Less!

 Tri-Pardo , our second round in The Roundhouse, then saw Jerry Superstar! pick the first category and roll for fourteen points, followed by The Integals picking the second category and rolling for nineteen points, and finally Cookiefaced picking the third category and rolling for fifteen points! This meant that forty-eight points were on the line in the second round! Both Jerry Superstar! and The Integals gained nineteen points, while The Craic Is Mighty lost ten points! Settling for Less gained a bit more, with an eighteen point swing, while Cookiefaced gained thirty-four points to stay in third place! Third, because staying in second after hitting for the triple in round two and gaining all forty-eight points were The Questionables… while also hitting for the triple and keeping their ONE POINT LEAD were Team Name!

 Trivia Finale  wagering then saw most teams go all-in, though The Integals left two on the board, and Settling For Less decided not to wager a single point! The Questionables only kept one point behind… and Team Name? They left thirteen points back, opening the door for the team formerly known as Suck It Trebek! Team Name were able to answer the last question correctly, but finished the night as runners-up with 133 points!

Finishing the night with 143 points, a new personal best for a new team name, and their SEVENTH GOLDEN VHS at 77th edition of Trivia Club on the 7th of May, the most all-time at The Rec Room… THE QUESTIONABLES! Well done to the team on their new era at The Rec Room Roundhouse!
