We returned to our longest-running location, the Black Label location, for a limited time in 2020… yes, Trivia Club was back at Hitch! Would we see a new Champion raise the Golden VHS or would we see a returning Champion for the 161st event at Queen and Leslie?

 Trivia Classic  came to an end with Cuba Gooding Junior Bacon Cheeseburger in the lead! The returning Matt Smith, in all his solo glory, had the eight point lead on Wookiee Mistake who finished the first round in second! A point and a half back in third were our good friends from The Sidekick, who were known as Coopa Bading Sr. (we all had been watching "What Dreams May Come" before Trivia Club this past Monday, FYI), and the Sr. had a three point lead on the one man Mega Mongoose making his 55th consecutive appearance at Hitch! Half a point behind Travis was Arnis, The Good Folks from Laramie Cigarettes! Rounding out the field, five points back from the Top Five (top five top five) was Omlettes Pancakes + Syrup!

 Game Show Games  then brought out the first TOP TEN in Countdown Takedown, which went to the Good Folks from Laramie Cigarettes who were in fact given the number by Mega Mongoose! Mongoose however went lower, and ended up with two points themselves! Wookiee Mistake got eight points, Omlettes got six points, and Cuba Gooding Junior Bacon Cheeseburger grabbed four points, while Sr. was left pointless! Survey Says then gave Omlettes Pancakes + Syrup the TOP TEN, while Cuba Gooding Junior Bacon Cheeseburger got eight points, Wookiee Mistake picked six points, Coopa Bading Sr. got four and Mega Mongoose nabbed another two points!

This meant that heading into  Tri-Pardo , Cuba Gooding Junior Bacon Cheeseburger still held the lead, but Wookiee Mistake had made up a bit of room, while The Good Folks had found their way into third place! For the categories, Omlettes Pancakes + Syrup picked the fist and rolled two points, while Good Folks picked the second and rolled for TWENTY POINTS, and Coopa Bading Sr. picked the third category and rolled for fifteen points. This meant that thirty-seven points were on the line! Ultimately, four of our six teams would hit for the triple as well, with only Bading Sr. grabbing less with twenty-two points added from the first and second questions, likewise for Omlettes Pancakes + Syrup who then lost fifteen points on the third question for a net positive of seven points.

This meant that heading into the  Trivia Finale , it was a balance of wagering and answering correctly as always with our blind wagers! Mega Mongoose left one point on the board, while The Good Folks did not wager three points… and everyone else went all in! Almost all teams then went on to answer the tricky final question incorrectly!

All except for our now TWO-TIME SOLO GOLDEN VHS CHAMP… Matthew Smith, on this night known as CUBA GOODING JUNIOR BACON CHEESEBURGER who finished the night with 158 points, his first solo Sesquicentennial Mark! The runner-up on the night at Hitch was The Good Folks from Laramie Cigarettes who finished with those three points left unwagered!

Congrats to Cuba Gooding Junior Bacon Cheeseburger once more, and thank you to everyone who came out to compete at Trivia Club this past Monday. For more Hitch nights, we will see you again on January 28th on the days after the Royal Rumble (which you can watch at Hitch too, by the way)!
