Lately, the Hobo Goat Family Trivia Project has run on some tough times. We haven’t won since February 25. I was beginning to lose my confidence. Were we as smart as I thought we were? Had we lost it? Should we hang it up and quit?
Well, we are back, baby, and in dominating fashion. We had our first full OG trivia team in over a month and we brought the pain. They ran the quiz backwards due to April Fools Day so round 8 was first. We jumped out of the gate with a 14, using several great guesses to get us there. Round two was the movie clip audio round with a number in the quote replaced. We scored a 15 on that round and jokered giving us a 30. The only one we missed was the number of times a swallow has to beat its wings per second from Monty Python and the Holy Grail (the answer is 43). We had 7 on round three to bring us to the first scoring break. We were up by seven points and the rout was on. The night turned really fun at that point with a lot of chatter between the quiz master RJ and the rest of the venue. Rounds 4 and 5 we were perfect. In round 6 we got a seven. The music audio round gave us 13 points (we didn’t know a Katy Perry title and some pop song by Kelly Clarkson). At this point we were up five points and knew no one could catch us. Round 8, or the typical round 1, we scored the ocho again to close out the night.
In the end, our margin of victory was seven points. It was nice to be back at the top of our little Moontower Mountain. I’ve got my confidence back and a new streak has begun.
