Trivia Q&A: November 19

We had a nice turnout last night, with 11 teams participating, and a lot of folks in the bar, as most teams had a large number of players, and it was a great atmosphere as well. We had the top four teams separated by just four points, but one of the teams tied for third, Impossible Club, got 4 of 5 correct in IQ Trivia to pull out the win with 42 points. Congratulations to Bob and Cato on a nice come from behind win.

We had a tie for second place, with both Deez Nutz+ and Impeaches & Cream at 41 points. We broke the tie with this question: “As of 2019, what is the current population of the nation of Lebanon?” Deez Nutz+ was closest to the answer (6.68 million) and took second.
