This Week in iQ Trivia – 26 May 2018

Here’s what you may have missed this week at iQ Trivia.

WINNERS

If you won this week, here’s evidence just in case anyone doesn’t believe you.

JACKPOTS

They won $250 in the jackpot for their expert knowledge on Mad Max films (which is a lot less when split between nine people, but is still worth having.)

These three knew a surprising amount about Harry Potter actresses (and the correct spelling of their names) and took home over $100 despite coming in second last in the quiz.

TEAM NAMES

We sincerely hope you don’t follow any of the rules for horrible people that you mentioned in your team names.

Lower back tattoos are classy and timeless

Starving African children don’t exist if you can’t see them

Order the lobster and ask to split the bill

Rush onto the train before people get off

It’s totally ok to leave your kids alone in Portuguese hotels

We’re right, even when we’re wrong

Guns don’t kill people, I do

People who clap when the plane lands

Heteronormativity

During a movie is a really good time to check Facebook

Never apologise as it admits fault

Old people should stand up on the bus

Walk into blind people and tell them to watch where they’re going

INTERESTING MOMENTS

iQ Trivia expanded to New Zealand… sort of.

The cousin of the founder of iQ Trivia asked for advice on how to put together a quiz, and got a whole quiz customised to Kiwi tastes.

One of our quizzes was won by a team of one. It’s rare, but it can happen.

One team immediately got the answer to a bonus question, but their runner showed it to us upside down and was told the answer wasn’t “olləH”. They still managed to return with “Hello” before anyone else could respond.

There were virtually no guesses on one of our bonus questions on toys that had changed colour to be more gender neutral, and when one team was brave enough to venture a guess of the Easy Bake Oven and was correct, half of the room immediately called out “I thought that was the answer!” Sorry. Saying the answer AFTER we’ve given it to you doesn’t get you any credit.

And one of the better wrong answers we got on the new titles of Meghan Markle included the titles of Princess of Rangas & Mother of Dragons.

See you next week.

When asked what specific thing DJ Khaled doesn’t do, one team said he didn’t make good music (in addition to not “reciprocating” with his wife.)

See you next week.

Interesting Question of the Day – 18 May 2018

The Proclaimers had a hit with a song claiming they would walk 500 miles, and that they would walk 500 more.

If they were to walk 1,000 miles from their home in Edinburgh just to fall down at your door, how many countries could they potentially be in?  (We are assuming they can walk on water and over any obstacles that might be in their way.)

The first new player to comment with the correct answer within two countries wins a free drink at their next iQ Trivia show.

Team Name Bonus Point – Week of 13 May 2018

We want you to write a horoscope this week.

But instead of being full of the standard horoscope clichés, we want it to be brutally honest or depressing.

Capricorn – Your children will exceed you in every way and you will be forgotten.

Aries – You will fall asleep watching Netflix again… just like last night.

Sagittarius – Your ex is NOT coming back, and they’ve already forgotten about you.

Libra – You will not meet your soulmate today, because the likelihood that the one person in the world to whom you are perfectly suited lives in the same city as you is infinitesimally small.

Give us a brutally frank or depressing horoscope and you’ll get a bonus point.

Have an interesting week.
