This Week in iQ Trivia – 23 March 2019

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

WINNERS

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

JACKPOTS

We had a few winners this week.

We love when team that don’t do well on the quiz as a whole take out the jackpot.

This couple came all the way from Colac, Victoria and came last. Then they won the jackpot.

And this trio have often struggled with the quiz, but this week the stars came together & they had just the right nugget of knowledge to win $137.

They proved once again, that it can be done.

TEAM NAMES

You came up with a lot of interesting band names.

People of Colour with Attitude

Beige Floyd

Fleetwood PC

Cascading Pebbles

Linkin Playground

Gang of Babies

U1

Red Mild Chili Peppers

Manslaughter Heidi

Wink 182

John Deputy Mayer

Pureeing Pumpkins

Spandau Polka

The Jackson 5 Year Olds

Mildly Aggressive Garden

Tepidplay

4 ½ Inch Nails

Moderate Disorder at the Disco

And our favourite… Radio Handjob

TriviArt

Square Beard

Sensation Shoes

Lengthy Shaft

Pedantic Tunnel

Flying Pineapple

Voluptuous Taxidermist

Dirty Tramp

INTERESTING MOMENTS

LARP stands for Large And Randy People.

One team came to one of our shows on Monday, and enjoyed it so much that they came again on Wednesday… so we had to come up with an alternate bonus round on the fly as they had already heard it. Luckily we’re pretty good at what we do.

A team was sufficiently into Ariana Grande that they guessed that she starred in Gone With the Wind, and was the model for Botticelli’s Birth of Venus.

And one couple got married last Saturday & left for their honeymoon on Tuesday, but made a point of going to trivia on Monday because they knew they wouldn’t be able to make their usual weekly show.

See you next week.

New Venue – Tattersalls Hotel, Goulburn – Wednesdays

Goulburn has got a new home for trivia every Wednesday.

Starting on 20 March, Tattersalls Hotel in the heart of Goulburn will be staging the most interesting trivia in town.

It’s the best way to spend a Wednesday evening unless you hate interesting trivia, cheap drinks, and delicious food, in which case we’d prefer it if you stayed away and made room for our kind of people.

Make sure you get in for happy hour before the show kicks off for $4 schooners from 4 to 6, and the kitchen will have you covered when it comes to brain food.

You can get ahead of the game with our homework question.  E-mail us on homework@iqtrivia.com.au to have it sent to you every week.

And you can find out more on our Facebook page.

Call 9211 1687 to book a table, and we will see you Wednesday at 7pm.

This Week in iQ Trivia – 16 March 2019

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

WINNERS

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

TEAM NAMES

There were plenty of dad jokes.

The rotation of the earth really makes my day.

I just heard a joke about beavers, and it was the best dam joke I’ve ever heard.

Did you hear about the restaurant on the moon? It had great food but no atmosphere.

When is a door not a door? When it’s ajar.

Eat Mop Who (repeat this one out loud a few times)

Hi hungry/depressed/pregnant, I’m dad.

What did the cheese say when it looked in the mirror? Haloumi.

Why did the scarecrow? Because he was outstanding in his field.

How do you make a sausage roll? Push it.

What tree can you fit in your hand? A palm tree.

How much does a hipster weigh? An Instagram.

TriviArt

Crunchy Moustache

Serendipitous Hair

Sleepy Guillotine

Aquatic Accountant

Inflatable Future

Funny Sun

INTERESTING MOMENTS

When we asked for an Italian city, one team went with Mulan. Which was wrong, and is also a Disney film rather than an Italian city.

We asked a bonus question about Don Bradman’s most common test match score, and one player who hadn’t listened to the question ran up to us with 99.4 written down. First of all, that wasn’t his average. Second, we didn’t want his average, but the score he scored most frequently. It took a few minutes for one of his teammates to explain that to him.

Another team correctly identified that Guantanamera was a song from Cuba, but guessed that it was sung in Swedish rather than Spanish. (Or at least wrote down Swedish rather than Spanish.)

We asked for an actress who played a variety of films roles including Queen Elizabeth I, Katherine Hepburn, and Galadriel… and one team went with Queen Elizabeth I. Yes, they guessed that a Queen who died over 300 years before Katherine Hepburn was born, played Katherine Hepburn (and also herself) in film. Rather than, say, Cate Blanchett.

And one British couple on holiday liked our Monday show so much, that they came back to two more shows, finally winning on their third attempt on Thursday courtesy of some help from their family.

They REALLY got into our trivia.

See you next week.
