This Week in iQ Trivia – 26 January 2019
Here’s what you may have missed this week at iQ Trivia.
First of all, we have a new winner of the iQ Trivia Champions League.
And one of this week’s teams tied the record score at an iQ Trivia quiz, with 80 points.
Of course, they used their team name to heap scorn on the music bonus round, and then proceeded to get 5/5 on it.
From now on, if you’re going to slag off one of our bonus rounds, you had better have the good grace to fail at it.
If you won, here’s evidence just in case anyone doesn’t believe you.
One team misspelled a region of Italy by a single letter & missed out on the jackpot. We confirmed the spelling, and they were one letter off on the English spelling, and a different letter off on the Italian spelling.
We hope you’re all being good, because your versions of hell would be horrible.

One team vandalised the Wikipedia page of Jonathan Thurston when the homework question asked for his middle name. It didn’t stay vandalised for long though, and everyone came up with the right answer in the end.
When we asked a question on Irish singers, we informed the crowd that Conor the Irishman at the bar was happy to give you the answer if you bought him a drink.
We asked what animal’s name is derived from Latin for hairy cat, and one team went with Platypus, because “plaity” describes a way you can wear your hair, and “puss” means cat.
When we asked one team to choose between two options on a 50/50 question, one player sagely noted “it’s definitely the first one… or the second.”
We allowed an Italian man named Marco to pronounce the names of Italian seasons, as his Italian pronunciation was marginally better than ours.
See you next week.
