This Week in iQ Trivia – 20 January 2018

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

We had what we hope will be an annual tradition of Champions League Trivia, pitting the strongest teams from all the iQ Trivia shows across Sydney against each other.

And it was Team Bagpuss (who somehow manage to awkwardly shoehorn the name “Bagpuss” into their team name every week regardless of the theme) who came out ahead, which means they get a year’s worth of bragging rights. (And you just know they’re going to take advantage of that!)

They also built themselves a trophy, the Bagpuss Finger.

WINNERS

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

JACKPOTS

These three came is second last, but knew enough about Latin languages to be the only one to get the jackpot question.

These folks had a great night, winning first place in the quiz, and taking home the jackpot for knowing a lot about Vice Presidents.

INTERESTING MOMENTS

When they couldn’t think of the title of the film Role Models, one team gave us a surprisingly detailed description of the plot.

Two Jewish players were filled with self-loathing when they couldn’t remember kvetch as a Yiddish word for habitual complaining.

One of our players proudly proclaimed “finally being from Adelaide is paying off!”

And our favourite wrong answers of the week was one of our players being asked in a lightning round what MSG stood for, and took a chance with Mono Saturated Goodness.

See you next week.
