 INTERESTING MOMENTS

A team that really needed points went for it in the bonus round when we were looking for a US state with 3/4 of the letters being vowels. Their guess… Philadelphia. Which is neither a state, nor does it contain enough vowels. But they went for it and we salute that.

The blokiest team at one of our shows turned out to be big fans of Shania Twain. Don’t let preconceptions deceive you.

A math question about John Travolta’s film career saw one team get every element of the math correct, and then forget to actually do the math. You’ve got to finish the job people!

Someone complained that by playing an audio clip of Breaking Bad, we made them watch the whole series again. We make no apologies.

See you next week.

INTERESTING MOMENTS 

One of our hosts gave a clue that a word we were looking for was 6 letters… when the word was militia… which is seven letters. Because sometimes counting is hard.

There was a debate over whether or not Russia counts as a European country. By the way… it is.

One team responded that there were no smart asses on their team. Which is untrue. We can state without fear of contradiction that their team is made up ENTIRELY of smart asses.

See you next week.

They did. And they still managed to come in last.

 

Next week will be quiet with most venues shut down, though we are planning an online show for those of you who get bored having time off.

INTERESTING MOMENTS

One member of one team chose the special subject, and then wasn’t there the next week. He has since been banned from choosing special subjects.

A bonus question on countries NOT including the letter “I” drew guesses of China, Indonesia, Brazil, and Nigeria… from veteran players who really need to learn the alphabet.

One team answered a question on European geography with “Czech Republic or Czechia or whatever they’re calling themselves this week”. Yeah, we’re going to be walking that line until that question gets settled.

When we announced that the answer to one question was “sexual harassment”, one team at a corporate show applauded. Whether or not they were sent away to a training seminar we’re not sure.

When we asked a bonus question how long Great Britain had been an island, one team guessed zero years. Zero. As in Great Britain is not currently an island. Which is an obviously wrong answer… which was still closer than everyone else’s answer, so they still got a point.

We had to explain that Don’t Stop Believing, a song released over a decade after the Beatles broke up, and over year after John Lennon was shot, was not a song by The Beatles.

See you next week.

INTERESTING MOMENTS

A nurse got a question on nursing wrong.

Rail workers got a question on Australian rail gauges wrong.

On the other hand, following a bonus question about math, one player spent a few minutes working out the answer exactly. There were no points to be gained by it, he just really wanted to be precise.

And that was worth a point.

We played Our House by Madness, and one team answered that it was “that song from the Chemist Warehouse ads”.

When asking about the country with the southernmost IKEA, we had to explain that Antarctica is not a country, and also that there aren’t any IKEA outlets there.

INTERESTING MOMENTS

A player came to iQ Trivia for the first time because she was shortly going to be appearing on The Chase and wanted the practice. She came up to face the challenge of naming animals on the Chinese Zodiac. Here’s hoping she swears less on national television.

When we asked for an adjective for TriviArt, one new player immediately leapt to “voluptuous”, not knowing what the purpose was. Her mind was just consumed with the word voluptuous.

How many actors played Pi in Life of Pi? How about 3.14159? (Well some of them were quite small so maybe they don’t count as full people.)

Who built the Labyrinth in Greek mythology? David Bowie.

And one player aced a couple of questions on Hanson… before indicating that she had a Hanson tattoo.

And perhaps the biggest story of the week… one of our hosts became a father.

Congrats to Nikkita & Joe on their new arrival. We expect to see David down at trivia soon.

See you next week.

Unusual things overheard during quizzes and presented here devoid of context… “I told you, I am an expert on sperm!”

See you next week.
