The Elevegeddon Is Upon Us!

Behold the 2009 Barfly Trivia Challenge Bus champions, Freaks of the Industry!
They won $100 cash, and a cheap trophy, for dominating the quizzery on this annual adventure. Jealous? You too, can ride the bus, but you’ll have to wait another year for Triviology to go mobile again. 14 mighty teams battled it out . . . and battle we did! Sarah put the “fight” in team Boyfight:
. . . and she may or may not be responsible for the mysterious black eye which appeared on the face of a wrestler on an opposing team:
. . . see?. . .

But what, pray tell, is this mysterious “Elevegeddon”? Well, Triviology currently rocks forth at 11 different venues, and to achieve the “Elevegeddon,” your team (or any individual members) must simply play at all of them – wins aren’t necessary. And the benefits of achieving this feat, aside from the obvious glory of marking your territory all over town? Wellsir, completing the Elevegeddon grants you one (and ONLY one) tally point towards “Titanship” in my annual tournament, The Clash of the Trivia Titans, which is held each February.

During the tournament, everyone is welcome to participate in the first quiz of this two-tiered competition, The Olympian Open. Whoever wins the Open becomes the wild card seed to compete in the main event, The Titan Invitational, and will quiz up against other teams who have earned their Titan status by gaining a particular number of wins during the preceding year. So, let’s say that the qualifying number of wins is 15 this year (it won’t be as high as that, though!) – if your team only has 14 wins, and you score an Elevegeddon, that extra tally point bumps you up to Titan status!

To keep track of the venues at which you’ve played, I have made quiz schedules which resemble punch cards. Grab one at any of my trivia nights, and your trivia jockey will initial it to verify your attendance, after the quiz. 11 venues – collect ‘em all! And remember, playing trivia at the sparsely attended venues increases your chance of victory! Play now at Ella Street Social Club (Mondays @ 7:00) and Hutch on Holgate (Wednesday @ 8:00) before they get all super-popular and you have to show up way early to get a seat!
