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

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

We have a new record score, as this team hit 82.5.

JACKPOTS

Whether they knew the answer to our question on the flag of the Northern Territory or they just got lucky, this team won cash.

They knew a lot about South American politics, and pigs.

And they knew a lot about eggs… and New Orleans.

INTERESTING MOMENTS

One team had trouble figuring out where the Gulf of Finland was, and a team made up entirely of Brits had apparently never heard of Sheffield.

When they forgot to do the homework question on actors who played the role of Pi in Life of Pi, two teams tried their luck with Peter Pi-per, Popeye, and Pi-thagorus.

One team mixed up Ferris Bueller’s Day Off with The Silence of the Lambs. We would kind of like to see those movies combine.

And a drunk douchecanoe twice yelled out the answers to questions we asked, so we came up with alternate questions on the spot & told him to shut the hell up. Attention douchecanoes… we have a microphone and we will use it to turn a room full of trivia patrons against you.

See you next week.

INTERESTING MOMENTS

A random passer-by passed through our quiz and started singing along with Cab Calloway.

When we asked a science fiction question, one player looked at her teammates and said “Come on nerds. Why do you think we brought you here?” Clearly it was to come up with answers like “Marty McJedi.”

Someone recognised a song being sung by Fred Astaire, but thought it was sung by Avril Lavigne… somehow.

And in front of a room full of colleagues, an accountant failed to accurately calculate how many doughnuts you would have left if you had a dozen and ate 12. She may already have been fired.

See you next week.
