What a great night for some trivia! The sponsor of the event was AmeriLife, Barbara and Annette came out and were entertained by the residents. They brought door prizes which consisted of gift cards, Sudoku, wine and delicious snacks for the players! They did an excellent job being the MCs and time keepers.
There were 21 playing teams and two spectator teams who were full of cheers when they got a question right and “boos” if they missed it!
For those that haven’t played before, the game consists of six rounds of questions which are made up of three questions each. The teams bet points on their answers. The halftime question had seven possible answers and teams received one point for each correct answer. The final question was worth 20 points and teams could bet a minimum of one point; if they bet 0 points they lost all 20 points. At this point of the night it’s all about strategy when betting on the final question. Most of the teams were close going into the final questions but the majority got the answer correct!
The categories vary each Trivia Night but here are a few of the questions from the May trivia. Answers are at the bottom.
1. Star Wars: Which character was the first to speak in A New Hope?
2. Music: Which Beatle member is barefoot on the iconic album cover of The Beatles “Abbey Road”?
3. Sports: Which type of pitch was banned from professional baseball in 1920 due to the death of Ray Chapman?
4. Final Question – Trivia Categories: Name the six categories and their color in the original Trivial Pursuit game.
Eight team members work together as one to come up with the answer and have three minutes to submit it!
The winning team members each received Wildhorse Grill gift certificates.
