Maddy’s Halloween Trivia Recap – October 26, 2011

DAMN that was some exciting trivia. Double Trouble (formally Double Fault) jumped out to an early lead thanks to their knowledge of scary book authors, but they just couldn’t hold it.

Google Santorum took Round 2 (“Boo”) but was still behind Maple Leif Eriksons* and Occupy Maddy’s, who were tied for first in the overall standings.

The Regulars** moved into a tie for first with Fool Me Twice after a stellar Name that Candy Round 3. But cold they hold on? The answer is yes. Team LAM took the last round but Regulars knew just enough scary movie taglines to hold on to the lead and bring home the $50 prize (which of course immediately went towards shots).

Last place went to Raising Euro Zone who earned everyone’s favorite Halloween candy, raisins.

Full Results and prize distribution below.

Round 1: Candy corn OR Glow in the dark witch PEZ dispenser

Double Fault went with the candy corn (did i mention the PEZ dispenser was glow in the dark?)

Round 2: Witch PEZ OR strobe light thingy for your pumpkin

Google Santorum took the PEZ.

Round 3: Stobe light OR big bag of M&Ms OR a copy of Breaking Dawn: The Twilight Saga in paperback that I got from CVS.

Of course, the M&Ms.

Round 4: Strobe light or Breaking Dawn.

Team LAM (bunch of chicks) took the Twilight book.

It's SCARY how low these scores were.

*I was wearing a Viking helmet. And I’m Canadian. So very clever.

**Just to be clear, these guys are regular drinkers, not regular thinkers. So congrats to them.

Maddy’s Trivia Recap: October 5, 2011

Knox Guilty jumped out to an early lead thanks to their knowledge of the Shift key, but it was all downhill for them (and everyone else) in what turned out to be statistically the hardest Round 2 in the history of Maddy’s trivia night. Amanda Knox Boots and Kills breezed through the Columbus Day-themed third round and just couldn’t be caught in final showdown.
