Pub Trivia – 12/15/15
Last week at Sam’s again second place had to be determined by the tie breaker question. It was “Trivia Newton John” who guessed closer to the correct percent of calories from fast food that American adults consume (11.3%) beating out “I Wanna Be Sedated” (third place). That left “Flip-Flop Beat Down” with the win because of perfect score in rounds 4 and 5.
This Tuesday will be the last of the year. Next Tuesday December 29th we’ll be taking a break enjoying the time with family.
Pub Trivia – 12/08/15
Last week at Sam’s “Wookie F’ers” slipped and fell behind, giving “Drex” a clear shot at third place. The last round had two teams tied for first. The deciding factor was the tie breaker question. “I Wanna Be Sedated” from Virginia Mason was just a little closer, earning them first place. “WTF James” was second.
With the holiday season in full stress mode there is no greater reason to take some time away for some needed stress relief. Join us next week as we detox, intox, and have fun.
Pub Trivia – 12/01/15
Last week at Sam’s the field changed a lot on the way to the last round. Despite their condition, “Pregnant Turkeys” finished in first place with a stellar final round. Reeling from the loss “I Wanna be Sedated” came in a close second. Third place went to “Group Therapy” wearing NHL Legend Gordie Howe’s jersey. Then out Perfectly Average Team were using their college degrees at the “Center For Applied Trivia”.
Pub Trivia – 11/24/15
Last week at Sam’s we’ve heard of light years and dog years, now it’s “trivia Adjusted Years”. Apparently it made them younger and smarter, finishing in first place. Then giving a whole meaning to recovery, it was “Group Therapy” in second place. Losing the three way tie it was “Wookie F*#k*rs” in third place. We added several teams during the game so we had a Perfectly Average Team, “Gluten Free Lap Dances”.
Pub Trivia – 11/17/15
Last week at Sam’s we had a few new teams. Playing consistent throughout the whole game, our winning team, “1 in 2 1/2 Men Has HIV” did a fantastic job. Then our second place team, with a tip of the hunters cap to the holiday and the NW, was “Tofurky Hunters”. Finally, sneaking into third place by a slim lead was “The Wookie F#$k@rs”
Pub Trivia – 11/10/15
Last week at Sam’s the last two rounds the standings changed dramically. “Group Therapy” previously in second place ended up our Perfectaly Average Team. Making a time travel statement, it was “Killing Baby Hitler” that made a jump from the middle of the pack to win the game. Then right behind them was “Probiscus Monkey” that made a similar jump only to end up two points behind putting them in second place. Don’t forget ‘Animal farm’ – poop holes.
We’ll see you on Tuesday.
Pub Trivia – 11/3/15
Last week at Sam’s round two was tough, but a few teams rose above the others.They went on to compete for the win. In a throw back to the old printers “PC Load Letter” ended up winning, with “Quiz In Your Pants” coming in a respectable place. It sounds like our Perfectly Average Team has completely abandonded their road to recovery in favor of their own form of ‘Group Therapy’.
Pub Trivia – 10/27/15
Last week at Sam’s while grabbing a few beers and waiting for a show to start at Neumo’s “Brain Storm Troopers” decided to try out pub trivia. They did so well they got third place and dominated round two ‘Scary Movie Characters’. Then, if you’re going to be one you might as well be “The Betty White Supremacists”. They were good enough to get second place, even after a hard music round. It started out a gentle rainfall then ended up a torrential downpour as “Hurricane Patricia” swept first place.
Pub Trivia – 10/20/15
Last week at Sam’s asking the thought provoking question, “Is Serena Our Kam Chancelor?” they came in third. Right in front of them, in second, were “The Wookers” paying homage to the upcoming movie release. Doc showed us the future and “McFly on The Wall” showed us what they could do, by winning the game.
Pub Trivia – 10/13/15
Last week at Sam’s they missed another ‘Group Therapy’ meeting and came out drinking, again. The second place helped ease the bar tab pain. Then our winners ‘2 Legit 2 Quiz’ turned one of the highest rounds of trivia ever. They almost won the pitcher in the music round. Our third place team ‘Star Bellied Sneectches’ back from summer vacation had a fantastic ending, just not enough to clinch first.
Don’t forget Sams eat free. Anyone Named Sam, Sammy, Sammantha, (well you get the idea) on October 21st eats free. See Facebook, or tavern for details.
(Sorry, photo did not turn out for Team 2!)
Pub Trivia – 10/06/15
Last time we quizzed at Sam’s instead going to a meeting at the community center several members decided to have “Group Therapy” at the bar. It paid off they won first place, getting part of their bar tab paid for. Our second place team missed winning by just a few points, but they’ll catch a “Midnight McMuffin” as comfort food on the way home. Our third place team was taking a break from their “Apodment Gang” and needed some food and drink. The winnings were a good way to pay for it.
Pub Trivia – 09/29/15
Last week at Sam’s, tipping their hat to the UK’s Prime Minister were our winners “David Cameron’s Piggies”. Then our second place team ripped their name from the headlines too, “Spewing Like VW’s Emmissions”. It was our third place team though that really told it like it was, a “A Sh!t Show From The Get Go”.
Pub Trivia – 09/22/15
Last week at Sam’s for the first time ever, Charles and his rag tag team “Sam’s Steam” marched their way past the other teams and laid claim to first place. ‘The Wookie F ‘ers” were the closest answering the tie breaker question, winning second place.

Pub Trivia – 09/15/15
Last week at Sam’s returning team, renamed “Gotta Risk It For The Biscuit” rose and fell throughout the game finally ending on the rise, winning first place. “Finger Puppet Mafia” was a close second doing well in the music round. Then “And In Frirst Place With 250 Points” crushed the first few rounds, ending up with third place.
Pub Trivia – 09/08/15
Last week at Sam’s traveling all the way from Nottingham England were the “Clueless Honeymooners”. They moved from fifth to third with a fantastic last round. They said the ladies held them back, but I think that’s what helped “Depth Perception” do so well, earning second place. Then sweating the last round and questionable answers were the first place winners “Bumbershoot Me”.
Pub Trivia – 09/01/15
Last week at Sam’s “Deez Nutz 4 Prez” grabbed second place away from “Robama” by a narrow margin, we used the tie breaker. It was “Angie’s Pipe Cleaners” that did well in the music and Know-It-All rounds securing the overall win.
Pub Trivia – 08/25/15
Last week at Sam’s despite some technical difficulties in the musical round “The Wookie F@#$ers” scored a near perfect round. It helped them move up the ladder just not climbing enough to get to first place, they finished second. Right behind them was the team that wears their heart for beer on their sleeve, “Malty Love”. The first place team didn’t just pull on the cord for their stop, no the had to yell it out “Stop The Bus and Let My Brother Jack, Off”
Pub Trivia – 08/18/15
Last week at Sam’s in the last round the “$3 Billz” moved from seventh place to third. Not so good with pop culture, they thrived, almost having a perfect round, and surged ahead. “Amazon – Live – Work – Cry” stayed strong at first place. While “Blue Barracudas” took second place. Combining two protests in one were “#AmazonLivesMatter”, one of the best new team names of the night.
Pub Trivia – 08/11/15
Last week at Sam’s we had several new teams. “Jeff & The Holograms” just appeared and made their way to first place. Bernie wasn’t the only politician on The Hill this week, we also had “President Trump” in second place. Then in third place, paying homage to ‘The Simpsons’, were “Boo-urns”
Pub Trivia – 08/04/15
Last week at Sam’s in the last round we saw “Quiz in My Pants” drop from second to third place. Them first place was determined by the tie breaker. This put “Cecil The Lion, DDS” in first place and the returning team “World Cup Dem Balls” in second.
Pub Trivia – 07/28/15
Last week at Sam’s late comer “Fried or Fertilized” moved up the pack fast to finish third. In fact that seemed to be the theme of the night, being late. “Everyone is Late” finished first despite the team trickling in slowly. But as always “Better Late Than Pregnant’, came in second.
Pub Trivia – 07/21/15
Last week at Sam’s Jared was “The Last Samurai” and became the Perfectly Average Team, of one. Then superhero “Dayman, Champion of The Night” was knocked out out the money round and got third. Team “Oreo Speedwagon” won second place by one point. Then, minus the full crime donkey title, it was just “Larry” winning overall.
Congratulations go out to James & Brianna Snyder for the birth of their twin girls Madison and Mia. We wish you and your family all the happiness.
Pub Trivia – 07/14/15
Last week at Sam’s our winners had one thing to say about being downgraded from a planet “Pluto – “I’m Back Bitches”. Second place was “Chris’s Convoy” with “All The Dogs Are Barking” in third place. And Iranian Warheads fourth, just barely knocked out of the money.
Pub Trivia – 07/07/15
Last week at Sam’s for the first four rounds it was a close race. Release dates of songs in the music round seemed to create some distance between teams. Then the final round really put them to the test. It’s named ‘Last Call for know-it-alls’ for a reason. Our first place team “Gouda Girls” didn’t mess around, scoring several near perfect rounds. Adding two new members really helped, even though one was a guy. He said he was goudasexual. Not sure what that means but it apparently qualified him to be on the team. Second place, “Larry The Crime Donkey” is almost always in the money round. a testament to a well rounded team. Finally new comer “Les Etoiles” which I tried hard to pronounce correctly, did a fantastic job, ending up as the “Perfectly Average Team”.
Sam’s has a new edition, The Milkshake. It’s absolutely amazing. Alcohol and dairy, my favorite. It’s a drunken dessert….
Pub Trivia – 06/30/15
Last week at Sam’s it was close right to the end between the first and second teams and the third and fourth. In the end “The Closers” were knocked out of the money round. So “The Wookie F#@kers” ended up in third place because their answer was closer. Hell any answer would be closer than none. Paying homage to the US women’s soccer team, “Hope Solo’s Childcare” was ahead the behind, finally acquiescing and winning second place. I’ve heard of country poultry even urban ones, but never “Ghetto Chickens”. Maybe they are more street wise then their country cousins. Well winning first place certainly gave them cred.
Last week at Sam’s with freshly painted rainbow cross walks, and more bears than live in the woods, Pride was in full swing on The Hill. Our winners were “Totally Using Cell Phones”. Leading from the start they never looked back. “Larry The Crime Donkey” took a step down from last week, coming in a close second. Sitting next to some teams can sometimes be painful, especially when they smell like “HippoFartz”, our third place team. Just take a bath, jeez. We had a great night, cold beers and Hot food…yumm.
Pub Trivia – 06/16/15
Last week at Sam’s the top 4 teams were separated by 5 points after two rounds. Then by round four it was down to three points, and in the end it was just two points. Unlike the Cav’s Warriors game with an 8 point spread. Good job Golden State. We used the tie breaker to determine the second place team. “Trivial Refugees” lost by a narrow margin to “Black Hawks Down”, who took second. That left “Larry The Crime Donkey” to reclaim first place after several weeks at second and third. A job well done, especially during the music round where they were one song name away from winning a pitcher.
Pub Trivia – 06/09/15
Last week at Sam’s five teams were within 4 points of each other throughout the game. But it wasn’t until the music round that “WTF Patty” with Patty now present, crushed it by knowing not only the new but also the songs from the 70’s and 80’s.They tied “Larry the Crime Donkey”, who in the end lost the tie breaker question, giving “WTF Patty” first place. “TacoCat” who did a fantastic job, but realized the music round was their kryptonite, dropping them from first to third. Scoring a perfect score in the picture round won “The Bimbos” a pint, only the second team to do so.
Pub Trivia – 06/02/15
Last week at Sam’s two teams tied for second place after the final round. They both had the EXACT correct answer for the tie breaker. So I had to go back trough the last three rounds and see who had more points. That’s the first time that’s ever happened. “Larry The Crime Donkey” narrowly lost out to “Klasey’s Angels” for second place. Then ‘TacoCat” who lead the whole time ended the night in first place.
Sam’s has a new edition, The Milkshake. It’s absolutely amazing. Alcohol and dairy, my favorite. It’s a drunken dessert….
Pub Trivia – 05/26/15
Last week at Sam’s all the teams were with-in just a few pints of each other after four rounds. Not only is that very rare, but also a bit challenging for the teams. Winning by just three points “Gender Neutral” made the switch and manned up to take first place. Finally she showed up just in time to get her picture taken. Seriously “WTF Patty?”, took second. After a long sexless weekend, the “Horny Toads” took second place. All of the teams did a great job and had a blast. We hope to see you on Tuesday night.
Pub Trivia – 05/19/15
Last time at Sam’s we learned literary prowess can earn you beers. It seem that teams either excelled in round 2, Couples in Literature, or they sucked. Then the music round, Bands Playing at Sasquatch, did some in too. Having a well rounded team or just being smart really helps. Two ladies from “O’Trivia Newton John” came on their own and ruled the roost. They did some very “Cunning Stunts” to win the game. Second place, was another group of ladies. Sad at loosing by ONE point they were “Angry Beavers”. Third place was the “BBW’s of ISIS”. They tanked the music round but crushed round 2. They’ll be back with a rounded out team to be contenders for first place.
Pub Trivia – 05/12/15
Last week at Sam’s our top teams switched places throughout the game. Until the final round when “You Only ‘YOLO’ Thrice” won first place. A hanging chad error put them in second place until they pointed out the error and rightfully took their crown. In other words the host screwed up, but made it right. That put “Mentally Gifted Morons” missing out on first place again. There’s guy can’t catch a break. Then just a few points behind but still in the running “Iran Into Yemen” came in at third place.
Pub Trivia – 05/05/15
Last week at Sam’s “I Want My $100 Back” was in second place the whole game. Until the end it looked like they were coming up fast on the leaders. But we ran out of rounds and they ended up staying in second place, missing out by just one point. Blending the Japanese paper folding with the days holiday, were our winners for the night, “Cinco De Origami”. The third place team, “The Wookie F#@kers” almost left, surprised that they won money to help pay the tab.
Pub Trivia – 04/28/15
Last week at Sam’s Kipper really wanted to let everyone know that she’s “Not Just a Pretty Face”. Her team went up against last week’s and this week’s champions “Trivial Refugees”, who scored nearly perfect in rounds one and two. While her team did not out score the winners, they certainly did well in the picture round and ended up only a few points behind. The third place team just wasn’t focused, always asking “Why So Serious?”. Everyone had a great time.
Pub Trivia – 04/21/15
Last week at Sam’s three teams were tied at the second. By the fourth they were separated by just one point each. Then at the final round “Gifted Class Rejects” fell from first place to third, losing by just three points. They did score nearly perfect in the music and picture rounds, perhaps it was the delicious burgers that did them in.
That left two teams with tied score in the end. utilizing the tie breaker the win went to “Trivial Refugees”. Which left “The Bimbos” in second place. All of the teams did a great job and had a blast. We hope to see you on Tuesday night.
Pub Trivia – 04/14/15
Last week at Sam’s two teams tied for first place right out of the gate. It wasn’t until the third round that ‘Trivial Refugees” managed to eek ahead and stay there till the end, winning the game. They have been playing Brainstormer Pub Trivia for years all around Seattle. Great to see you at Sam’s. What happens when the weather dips below zero at the Alamo in San Antonio? You get a “Frozen Fort” our second place team. Then as a complete surprize, (The) “Ohh-Geez” showed in scoring enough to take third place.
Pub Trivia – 04/07/15
Defending their fifth place title from the week before “Leanne’s Sluts” moved up in the field and improved their standings this week ending in second place. Our winners also improved their place this week. “The Bimbos” had a close win with just a few points to spare. Listen to Marissa. Then newcomers “Chic Shack” crushed the handout round, ‘Back to Black’ and scored third place.
Pub Trivia – 03/31/15
Last week at Sam’s Tavern right up till the last round it looked like ” Car Ramrod” would take the checkered flag. But having trouble in the final stretch, they ended up scoring just enough to be our Perfectly Average Team. “The Bimbos” made a were well with in range to take it all, they made a fantastic sprint in the end. But came up just ONE point short, and got second place. First timers, an eclectic mix of friends, gleamed from past winning teams having played trivia at many other venues. The “Blue Barracudas” had a solid game throughout winning first place, especially in the end when Ramrod came up short.
Pub Trivia – 03/24/15
Last week when we played trivia at Sam’s “6th Grade Scarred Me 4 Life” was in first place until the last round, then the fear of finals and a ruler to the knuckles became overwhelming. They dropped to third place. Hanging their heads in defeat thinking ‘it can’t be happening to us, not meow’ . Then as if out of no where came “Car Ramrod” with full lights and siren, they cruised into first place. They derived much of their power from the mustache. Then like a quiet sneaky Ninja our second place team crept up on their target like “The Killas” that they are.
Pub Trivia – 03/10/15
At Sam’s when we quizzed last during the last two rounds were very weird. “Keri Me Home” in first place at the end of round four, didn’t do well in the music round, dropping to fourth place. Which opened up possibilities. In the music round one team named all the artists and songs correctly, which would have won them a pitcher, but they left… So, “The Bitches” lost out. Only the second time we would have given out a pitcher. Then in the final round the winner came down to guessing the weight of a Burmese python, the tie breaker question. It was “The Bimbos” who ended up clinching the title. Hey “H8r’s Gonna H8” and this time they weren’t angry at anyone but themselves, second place. Tic-tac-toe…(the correct answer in the first round they crossed out). That left last weeks winners “You Only YOLO Twice” with third place, by just two points.
St. Patricks Day (March 17th) we’ll be taking that off to celebrate, then returning on March 24th.
Pub Trivia – 03/03/15
Last week every team scored 100% on round two: Candy. We certainly know our sugary snacks. Mmmmmm. the next few rounds helped separate the teams even more. But really it wasn’t until the last round that “You only ‘YOLO’ Once” took a decisive lead to win the game. Then returning and sincerely missed team “Don’t Fing Swear” picked up steam and came from no where to score third place. They narrowly lost (by three points) to second place team “Nipples of Mystery”.
Pub Trivia – 02/24/15
Last week at Sam’s Tavern we had a last minute entry, “Thunder Pussy”, a stong challenger to our three week leader and still champion of the number one spot, “The Bimbos”. But then beating out everyone else for second place was the team that was far from “Next to Last”. Then rounding out the trio of winners was third place, a late arrival, Mother and Daughter, “Team BC”.
Pub Trivia – 02/03/15
Last week several new teams joined us. Our second place, “The Bimbos” came out of nowhere, underdogs for the first several rounds. Scoring the highest in the last two rounds really moved them up. In the last round “Velociraptors” pounced on the returning team “Left Shark Lushes” to claim third place. Then returning team “A is For Alone” feeling superstitious decided to keep their name, despite their growing numbers. They out-scored every team in every round except music. What a fantastic night.
Pub Trivia – 01/27/15
Last week we rotated first place several times. She said, “really they are on their way”. Our second place team started solo then grew one person at a time, but kept the name, “A is for ALONE”. Then combining the British subway warning and the growing economic class separation was our third place team “Mind The Gap”. But in the end no one could handle “Brady’s Soft Balls”, our winners. He did say in the press conference, “he doesn’t like people touching his balls”.
Pub Trivia – 01/20/15
They didn’t travel from the other side of the city for nothing. “Crosstown Neighbors” won the big prize. They recruited other players and are now a force to be reckoned with. While normally thought of as playful and outgoing, “Corgi’s 4 Life” were tenacious. It came down to the last round, they lost but by three points, placing them in second place. Our final place is third, though it’s from Se7en, “Gwyneth Paltrow’s Head in a Box”.
We had several great team names, hopefully next time they make it into the top three and I can share their creativity.
Join us Tuesday and enjoy the BEST Bloody Mary in Town, with the most amazing burgers.
Pub Trivia – 01/13/15
Last week the body was the focus of team names. A team from the local writers non profit, Hugo House, came in third place, with “Dickens in My Mouth”. Classic and classy, a good fit for the hill. Our second place team was seriously competitive. Despite their name I don’t think they wanted to resort to a “Throat-Punch”.
They been told to get it checked out by a doctor. But our third place team said it only “Burns a Tad When I Pee”.
Pub Trivia – 01/06/15
Music and movies go together like a hipster and plaid. That’s just what happened last week it was songs from movies, and our fourth place team, “Muffin Top” won the round by a landslide. Unfortunately it wasn’t enough for them to beat “Marky Mark’s 3rd Nipple” our third place team. They not only had one of the best team names from the night, but also the best quote came from them. “It’s Superman, G@d Damit”. Just ahead of them from the other side of of the city was “Cross Town Neighbors”. Then our first place, putting their law degrees to work to cover their bar tab “EB’s Big Adventure”. The last round sealed the win with a near perfect round.
