at The Rec Room Roundhouse: The Questionables, June 25th 2019 TRIVIA CLUB CHAMPS

June 26, 2019

What a wonderful summer day at The Rec Room Roundhouse that not only saw all kinds of competition but also an over-flowing crowd of teams coming to take part in Trivia Club at The Rec Room’s flagship location! Would we see a new Champion, or a returning winning?

 Trivia Classic  came to an end with a tie between two large groups there at The Rec Room for one person, yes tied atop the standings were Mary’s Masterminds and Mary Crushers! There’s Something About Mary! Two and a half point behind the Mary War were last week’s Champs looking to top a new milestone in The Questionables! The Rec Room’s regulars were looking for their tenth Golden VHS! They would have to deal with Cookiefaced however, who was just half a point behind their fellow regulars! Two and a half point behind Cookiefaced was Just an Average Guy… with Exceptional Hair! Dead on the Inside was taking a… positive bend with his latest team name? He has Exceptional Hair! Three and a half points behind Dead on the Inside’s Average Guy… with Exceptional Hair were Varsity Cluez, just outside the Top Five (top five top five), and rounding out the field were Alice’s Slippers and Abigails!

 Game Show Games  then began with Countdown Takedown, and saw Cookiefaced grab the TOP TEN, while Alice’s Slippers grabbed eight points, The Questionables notched six points, Mary Crushers got four, and Just an Average Guy… with Exceptional Hair nabbed two points! No teams nabbed a ten in Survey Says afterwards, but Mary Crushers grabbed another eight points, while Mary’s Masterminds got another two points!

 Tri-Pardo  then saw Cookiefaced roll the first category for five points, Mary’s Mastermind roll the second category for twelve points, and Varsity Cluez roll the third category for nineteen points! This meant that thirty-six points were on the line, and they were certainly weight towards the second but especially the third questions! Making the biggest gain in the third round were The Questionables who gained thirty-one points from the second and third questions! From the second question, Cookiefaced, Alice’s Slippers, Mary’s Masterminds, and Just an Average Guy… with Exceptional Hair all gained twelve points!

This meant that heading into the  Trivia Finale , The Questionables had fought their way forward to first place, while Cookiefaced were now in second place five points ahead of Mary’s Masterminds, who had gained an advantage on Mary Crushers (the team had lost seven points in Tri-Pardo) and with it bragging rights! Mary’s Masterminds decided not to fully wager all their points and neither did Just an Average Guy… with Exceptional Hair. The wager saw Dead on the Inside's solo Guy slip out of the Top Five, from fourth to sixth to end the night, even after getting the answer correct! Both Mary teams would answer the Finale correctly though Mary’s Masterminds would still finish a point and a half ahead of Mary Crushers!

Cookiefaced would finish the night with 101 points, runners-up on the night! Winning their TENTH GOLDEN VHS CHAMPIONSHIP, now the sixteenth team in the history of Trivia Club to do so, and the FIRST at The Rec Room to reach the milestone… THE QUESTIONABLES! The Questionables finished the night with 131 points as repeat Champs!

Congrats to The Questionables, and thank you to everyone who came out to The Rec Room Roundhouse and made it such a fun night! We’ll see you all again NEXT TUESDAY on July 2nd, on the other end of Canada Day Long Weekend for more Trivia Club!
