Another great night at The Branch saw habitual carry over champs quiz on my...destroyed by their own popularity. Swelling out to an astonishing 14 members tonight saw them sacrifice 8 points, dropping from first to sixth or something! Paper planes nearly took out eyes as per usual and tonight saw the return of the Luke’s Shameless Self Promotion Round. Why would the shadowy puppet masters at head office in Krakow set questions pertaining to my upcoming Melbourne International Comedy Festival show? Could they want us to buy tickets? Perhaps we’ll find out next week..
What a great night of big smiles and happy teams - even when I read out 'Genitalia' they wanted me to say it even louder! With three teams competing to take the glory home, the winning team Har Grave Diggers won by just one point against competeting family team Peggy and the Pussy Cats. Last week's champions A Team came in third which was still a win as not all their team mates could make it!
Hooooo mama what a wild night we had at the Provincial Hotel. Nine teams came forth to do battle in the arena of knowin stuff real good. By halftime it looked like the Quizzical Trivialists were the team to beat, but after a blistering music round F**ck Boys Feat Basic Bitch took the gold!
We filled the house yet again at Grape and Grain for Trivia Tuesday! Eleven teams started the night, but there was only one winner of the exclusive $50 voucher. The paper plane competition had some interesting variations of build throughout the teams. Quite a few fell short of their destination and one flying too high had an emergency landing in the famous beer bottle chandelier. The cryptic round proved hard to decipher for the teams as the room fell silent as everyone had put their thinking caps on. Both coming in third place were Grape and...
After a huge weekend in Boyupbrook, WA, I lovingly made the treck back for the food, beer and trivia here at The Belgian Beer Cafe. As usual, plenty of cheeky and great conversation! Winners tonight of the quiz and also team name of the week are “CU in the NT” For a hint next week check out https://instagram.com/bensorensen1
Monday night trivia has taken off at The Kodiak Club, with 7 teams and a nearly full house of players. Prizes include food and drink giveaways, as well as vouchers for first, second, and second-to-last places! Last night, there were ties for all winners, with a final question face-off. Come check out Fitzroy's newest (and best!) trivia night every Monday from 7pm!
Another lovely night at The Skinny Dog last night. 8 brave teams came forth to do battle in the arena of knowing stuff real good. After beating the 'Ninja Girls Night Out', the proud people from the nation of 'Elmoria' put in a brave effort and came second place, earning a $25 bar tab in the process. But the grand winner of the night were 'We Need A Name', they might need a name but they definitely don't need any help!
Other teams will have spent their vouchers. Three teams, one epic battle, one winner, one runners up and one table of sexy losers! One table was made up of two couples on their first and second tinder dates respectively, and they joined forces to become the 'Cunning Linguists' and pulled in the second place prize, while first place was claimed by the returning regulars the 'Periodic Table Dancers'.
Huuuuuge night at The Penny Black. Fifteen brave teams came forth to do battle in the arena of knowin’ stuff real good (and enjoyed some great $10 burgers!). By half time it looked like 'My Couch Pulls Out But Barnaby Joyce Doesn’t' were a shoe in for victory, but after a blistering audio round 'The Young Divas' took the gold!
Host Connor travelled up from fancy pants Brighton to hipster Thornbury to deliver another Question 1 quiz at 3 Ravens Brewery. It is a cosy, warmly lit space with boutique in-house brewed beers, and snacks. The dog friendly bar's star of the night was the winning team's pooch Lucy, a big black distraction with her own jar of treats on the bar. As if previously winning team 'I'm Only Here to Establish an Alibi' (strategically split into two teams this week, 'You're Tearing Me Apart Lisa' and 'Beer: Our Drug of Choice') needed extra points for...
It was a perfect night to cram the crowd in and feel the heat. Regulars faced off as the American super group of girls returned after a multi-month absence, though fell short of a crown. 'The Mexican Drift' brought in a dozen ringers for a 30th birthday in their ranks and cordoned off the non-premium members for a back-to-back victory, and many new players learned the secret of a great night out at Trivia with Question One!!
'Coq Au Vin' love The Coq and they love to win! Last night they had a secret weapon... Cal, from 5th in the Pizza eating competition on Friday night to the podium on Trivia Night! Boom! Another great night at The Coq with people from all walks of life getting involved. Riley's birthday party provided lots of entertainment, 'The Flaccid Casanova's' were, well, flaccid, and 'The Crouching Arse' brought up the rear. Love was in the air last night! Back to the usual humdrum next week xx
Well it seems that love 'aint dead at all as many people decided that a romantic evening in the restaurant was more preferable than a night of trivia in the bar! Well nuthin's gonna stop us from getting it on! And we did! Four teams of full of singletons (we think) battled it out and in the end we had a tiebreaker! Lotsa fun. See you all back next week... once the romance has died off... Cheers
Tonight ramped up just a bit more than last week with a few extra players coming along to The Gold Diggers Arms. After the first round, the scores were very close with all teams within a couple of points. This trend continued for the rest of the night with the teams finishing very close. Well done to all who played and congratulations to our winners.
Another fine night down at The Provincial hotel, ten teams came forth to do battle once again in the arena of knowin’ stuff real good. As if the night couldn’t get more exciting, we had a tiebreaker for second place between 'Martins Martians' and 'The Fineapples', after a nail biting round 'The Martians' took the silver, leaving 'Wide Open Choad' victorious in first place.
It was a room full of brains as the final score was a close one! Winning by just one point, 'the Leftovers' took out 'the Killer Pythons' 29 points to 28 - while the joint third place teams; Mouse Trap and Mustang Sally's were not far behind on 24. All teams walked away with new found knowledge, particularly the chin of a famous songstress.
I am the first to admit I know nothing about sport. I am sure I could win Millionare or any other TV quiz, as long as I don’t have to answer any sport question more difficult than “What is the name of Donald Bradman?” So it’s nice that I’m learning through my preferred medium, story. Each week through the wonder of team name I get an update in the saga of football coach Sam Allardyce, in what has fast become known as the Ballad of Sam Allardyce. It’s a gripping tale of salaries and job jumping....
Grape and Grain packed out yet again for another fun filled night of Trivia! Instead of the usual paper plane competition and with Cupids Arrow looming, an Origami Competition was held with the theme of loooove. A puppy dog face, a love heart, and a few cranes were made, but taking the Free Drink was 'I'm Sweaty & Moist' with their origami piece titled 'Nine Months Later'; which was two cranes with a heart joining them and a little baby crane. After the first round we had 5 teams coming last all on 13 points. Keeping...
Epic week with many puns and jabs about Barnaby Joyce and the sanctity of marriage... and of course the baby bonus! It wasn’t all politically fueled satire, we did enjoy some great food, great beer and some brilliant trivia questions too! Book your table for next week and find a cheeky trivia hint each Tuesday here: https://instagram.com/bensorensen1. See you! :)
Monday night marked the first night of Question One trivia at the Kodiak Club in Fitzroy. The bar was overflowing with people there for both the trivia and the $1 chicken wings!
