We found out that our trivia was sufficiently interesting that a player put away their sewing to focus on the questions.

One player was so thrilled to hear Hamilton, Jamiroquai, and Crazy Rich Asians that she shook with glee on each of those audio clues so much that we thought she might be having a seizure.

And we had a record performance in a lightning round. After being the last player standing at the letter M in round 3, he proceeded to answer the final 13 letters perfectly to complete the lightning round.

We’ve seen that before, but at a time when we allowed a lot more passing, and in that case they only had to answer three more questions at the end.

The entire room, even people who weren’t playing trivia, ERUPTED in applause when Andy nailed the last question.

See you next week.

And when they didn’t know what Sydney beach was mentioned in the Beach Boys song Surfin’ USA, one team made up lyrics to suit their answer. Which is worth a point.

See you next week.
