WINNERS

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

JACKPOTS

They knew a lot about electricity, and won cash.

TEAM NAMES

Here’s how you changed song lyrics.

I’m to sexy for my yurt

Little red courgette

Goodbye aubergine

Baby got crack

I got 99 problems but the rich ain’t one

I was made for loving poo

Everything I do, I do it for Prue

Christians let us all ring Joyce

Blue seal in the sky with diamonds

It’s a long way to the shops if you want a sausage roll

Apple bottom beans

Who lives in a pineapple by royal decree

Ilya’s mom has got a lacy thong

Lets get quizzical

The logical thong

Rap cod

Smack my twitch up

Highway to smell

Stairway to Devon

We will wok you

Don’t go Jason Waterfalls

Come on baby light my spire

I will let you down, I will make you curt

Hit me scabies one more time

TriviArt

Hairy Book (with actual hair from every team member)

Ferocious Shirt

Smashing Cones

Oily Flute

Irish Grief

Flowery Trump

INTERESTING MOMENTS

Abdul, one of our regulars, chose to have his birthday at trivia.

He had also chosen the special subject of his own birthday, which naturally, he and his friends aced.

When we asked for the most spoken language beginning with the letter B, more than one team answered “bullshit”. They’re not wrong.

We had to explain to one team that England does not begin with an I. (Well not in English.)

While we were doing a lightning round, one team was trying to photograph the answers off our answer sheet. For that, we assessed a penalty that left them with the lowest score ever at iQ Trivia, which was -1.

And in the same lightning round, one player dropped the ball on a question he really should have known. After the show we found out from his boss that next week he’s having his annual performance review, and that his mistake would be brought up. Yes, iQ Trivia is apparently branching off into HR consultancy.

See you next week.

This Week in iQ Trivia – 11 May 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

They took first place in the quiz, and then allowed another team to choose the jackpot subject as they’ve never won when choosing the subject themselves… and then they won the jackpot.

TEAM NAMES

You have some frankly ridiculous fears… and maybe a few reasonable fears.

Coming last at trivia

Clive Palmer becomes PM

Human eye contact

Beards

Velvet

Turtles

Being watched by a duck

My inner demons don’t like me

Not having a smartphone

Looking after primary aged kids at the beach

The only song on the radio is Love Shack by the B52s, forever

Walking over grates, uneven pavements, or sewer covers

My boyfriend kicking me in the face while we sleep, because, you know, we sleep head to toe, obviously

I cover my feet with a pillow at night so I don’t get stabbed

Trivia hosts

TriviArt

Crocodile Schnitzel

Swimming Pig

Artificial Noun

Fancy Host

Existential Bottles

Sweaty Bird Wine

 

Drunk Leonardo DiCaprio

Hungry Squirrel

INTERESTING MOMENTS

On a jackpot question about the timing of a WWI battle, one team went two years before the war began, and one team went 26 years after it ended (taking them right into World War II.)

We asked about the label on a bottle of Jack Daniels, and someone went to the bad and ordered a “Jack Daniels and… something.”

One team who doesn’t drink, up an DONATED their bar tab to another team that promised to give it a good home.

And we helped raise over $9,000 for the Steve Burroughs Foundation at a charity trivia night.

See you next week.
