With Trivia Club beginning it’s third year of competition at The Rec Room Roundhouse, that also meant that we could see the Grand Finale of, and leg two, of a multi-week competition for The Roundhouse Royale! Trivia Club’s competition to crown Trivia Royalty at The Rec Room saw unexpected twists last week that left our group of regular teams at a disadvantage but far from out of the running!

 Trivia Classic  saw The Questionables with the round one advantage on their fellow regular teams, and a brand-new team in the mix! On their fortieth appearance, The Questionables had a ten-point lead on newcomers Yardie aka Jam Rock! In third place, one and a half points away from Jam Rock were Cookiefaced! Having almost won last week, Cookiefaced would once again have to look to catch up! The biggest lead from last week for teams on this night belonged to One Mean Oedipis, the newest name of our returning team otherwise known as One Mean Oedipis who was one point behind Cookiefaced tonight but had six points on the field! From last week, Hold Me Close Tiny Answer had not returned to see how their 86 points would play out, now fully following in the foot steps of Rhymes with Regina from last year's anniversary results!

 Game Show Games  began with Countdown Takedown, as it is want to do at The Rec Room Roundhouse… and wouldn’t you know it… Cookiefaced grabbed the TOP TEN, and One Mean Oedipus grabbed eight points, while The Questionables were left pointless! Though both teams were still behind The Questionables, both teams had very much closed the ground on The Questionables first round advantage! Survey Says then saw Cookiefaced add another TOP TEN, which meant they had taken the lead on the first time tonight, while One Mean Oedipus added another eight points which meant they were now in second as The Questionables gained two points in the second round!

 Tri-Pardo , our third round, then saw The Questionables choose the first category and roll for nineteen points, while One Mean Oedipus picked the second category and rolled for sixteen points, and finally Cookiefaced picked the third category and roll for eighteen… this meant that huge fifty-three points were on the line! Gaining thirty-five points from the first and second questions, were both The Questionables and One Mean Oedipus, which meant that Dead on the Inside’s One still held his one and a half point advantage! Speaking of advantages however, Cookiefaced HIT FOR THE TRIPLE in round three, and picked up all fifty-three points!

This meant that heading into the Trivia Finale, Cookiefaced had ninety-seven points! Before even wagering, they could surpass Hold Me Close Tiny Answer from last week, but of course Cookiefaced had to think about the two other Five Timers Club members from The Rec Room Roundhouse! Cookiefaced wagered eighty-eight points, while The Questionables wagered sixty points and One Mean Oedipus wagered fifty-five points! As the dust settled…

One Mean Oedipus finished the night with 129 points on the night, good for third, having been out-wagered on the night, but with the 6.5 points from last week Dead on the Inside had 135.5 points and were the runner-up for The Roundhouse Royale anniversary competition! Finishing this past Tuesday with 132.5 points as the runners-up on the night were The Questionables! Our winningest team at The Rec Room finished with 133 points overall for our second anniversary, good for third!

This meant that COOKIEFACED would finish the night with 185 points and would not only win their EIGHTH GOLDEN VHS Championship thanks in part to their eighty-eight point wager, but would also become the second annual TRIVIA ROYALTY at THE REC ROOM, as the top team standing after The Roundhouse Royale! Not only that, but two weeks after a new high score was set… Cookiefaced had reset the mark with the NEW ALL-TIME HIGH SCORE at The Rec Room!

Congratulations once again to Cookiefaced, and once again thank you to Cookiefaced, The Questionables, and Dead on the Inside for helping establish such a competitive community of trivia at The Rec Room Roundhouse this past year! It’s been an exceptional time hosting trivia at The Rec Room since September 2017, and exciting seeing how it has grown not only in Toronto, but across Canada!
