Trivia Q&A: September 27

We had 12 teams in for Trivia on Wednesday night, and while the crowds have been slightly down the last couple of weeks, we still had another great night of Trivia Q&A. We had three teams separated by four points going into the final round, and the IQ Trivia scores were on the lower side, as no team got more than two correct. But for the second straight week, the same two teams finished forst and second, as our friends from DIMS got the win, getting 42 points. Congrats to Ken, Mike and Derek on their win. Second place went to Something Inoffensive with 38 points, and OS East finished third with 34 points.
