Trivia Q&A: March 27

We had a terrific turnout on Tuesday night, with 18 teams in, and a very raucous Trivia crowd at that. Everybody was really into it, and the scores reflected that. We had a four-way tie going into the IQ Trivia round, and I don't believe that has ever happened before. But the team of Admiral Crunch pulled out the victory, as they got 4 of 5 correct in the round to win it all, with 46 points. Congrats to them on their first ever Tuesday Night Trivia victory.

Second place went to DIMSUM with 43 points, and third place went to Mike Pence's Gay Wet Dream (who jumped over a whole bunch of teams by also getting 4 of 5 correct at the end) with 39 points.
