HOA Trivia Night gets people thinking!


Shelbi Mascheri

The first Trivia Night of the year really got people thinking! The sponsor was Select Rehabilitation Hospital of Denton, hosted by Darla Powell and her two co-workers, who loved the game and stayed entertained by the residents. They brought door prizes which consisted of gift cards, blankets, wallets, and delicious snacks for the players! They did an excellent job being the MC and time keepers.

There were 22 playing teams and three spectating teams and they were full of cheers when they got a question right and boos if they missed it! We started with some tougher questions, but the second round brought some teams in the lead!

For those that haven’t played before, there are six rounds of questions which are made up of three questions each and teams bet points on their answers. The halftime question had six 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 1 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 February Trivia. Answers are at the bottom.

1. Sports: What US city was the first to host the Olympic games?

2. Music: Who was the first woman to be inducted in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame?

3. Animals: What is a group of frogs called?

4. Final Question – Movies: What was the highest grossing film in 1972—and for a time was the highest grossing film ever made?

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.


Village Idiots 65 points – 1st Place

Fresh Start 64 Points – 2nd Place

Wits End 63 Points – 3rd Place
