Trivia Club returned for its post Sesquicentennial event at Hitch this Monday, and with it brought a collection of regular competition to continue their ongoing battle for the Black Label location!

 Trivia Classic  came to a close with the Fighting Mongooses leading the field, a familiar position for the team that had taken that position as the all-time team, during the last three years of Hitch! Seven and a half points behind was a familiar face however, the connecting team of our time on the east end, The Good Folks from Laramie Cigarettes! Two and a half points behind them? By Wook or By Crook! Yes, the Wookiee behind the bar was very familiar as well! Rounding out the field was The Sinking Ship, making a return appearance for the first time since his birthday Championship in May!

 Game Show Games  then began with Box Office Bulls-eye putting the pressure on the field, which the Fighting Mongooses followed for five points, while The Good Folks also notched five to keep things close! The Fighting Mongooses followed this up with the TOP TEN in Survey Says however, before By Wook or By Crook grabbed the TOP TEN in Countdown Takedown!

 Tri-Pardo  then began with The Good Folks from Laramie rolling for 12 points, followed by the Fighting Mongooses rolling a TWENTY, and ultimately The Sinking Ship doing almost as well with a nineteen point roll. This meant that fifty-one points were on the line! By Wook or By Crook answered the first two questions correctly for thirty-two points, while The Sinking Ship, The Good Folks from Laramie Cigarettes, and the Fighting Mongooses all hit for the triple, giving a huge boost for the field and putting the Fighting Mongooses in place to score 200 or more points for the second time this year!

That would be a possible landmark if they could answer the  Trivia Finale  correctly. With all teams going all in, save for the half a point by the Good Folks and a full point from The Sinking Ship, it came down to that last question as well! And wouldn't you know it... one team would answer incorrectly. That team wouldn't be the Mongooses however.

Finishing the night with 208 points, giving them the fifth highest score all-time at Hitch to date, for their TWENTY-FIRST GOLDEN VHS... FIGHTING MONGOOSES! The Fighting Mongooses have now scored 200 plus points twice in 2019, and join the Electric Mayhem, The Electric Bastards, and the M. Night Shaym-Aliens in scoring 200 plus points three times!

Congrats once more to the Fighting Mongooses, and thank you once again to our regulars for coming out to compete at our long-running Home Away of Hitch! We will see you again in THREE WEEKS on August 12th for the next edition of Trivia Club's Monday night live event!
