Trivia at Michael Diversey's

Congratulations to the two teams from our group that tied for first this past Sunday! Definitely a hard fought competition.

For those new to the group, we usually form up two teams, sometimes three (8 person max per team), so we'll have a sign on the table(s) indicating that it's us. We're usually at the back of the bar. Trivia starts promptly at 8 o'clock so we try to get there a little early to get settled in. It usually ends around 10:30 and some of us stay afterwards to hang out.

Trivia at Michael Diversey's consists of 5 regular rounds with 10-12 questions each and a speed round to finish things up.

Round 1 is a picture round.

Round 2 is a general trivia round but all 10 of the answers are themed. So maybe you have the answers "Ford Bronco" and "Lincoln Logs." At that point, the theme might be car brands or U.S. Presidents. Figuring out the theme gets you 2 points and can assist you in figuring out some of the other questions.

Round 3 is typically a music round. You get ½ a point for the artist and ½ a point for the song title.

Round 4 can be anything.

Round 5 is usually chosen the week before by the team that comes in fifth place. You are also allowed to double one of the first 5 rounds. So if you are pretty sure about all twelve answers in a particular round, double it to get 24.

The sixth round is a speed round. It consists of one question with 30 possible answers. It could be something like "Most populous cities in the U.S." or "current members of the Chicago Blackhawks." There's really no telling until he reveals the question. At that point you've got about 4 minutes to write down as many answers as possible.

On Sunday afternoon, the M.C. will post the topics for the rounds on Facebook and clues for Round 2 on Twitter.  I'll copy and paste them in the comments section so you know what you're getting yourself in to.

The team that came in fifth this past week chose a picture round consisting of characters from the tv show "Arrested Development." Apparently there's some guy named Bob Loblaw on there. You should probably be able to recognize him.

Hope to see you all on Sunday!

      I looked earlier to see if today had something to do with The Beibs but it doesn't. Was thinking that with the theme and the repetitive songs. Turns out his birthday is March 1st. I regret that I now know that and will never forget it :(
