And just like that, it’s over. For the Number 1 seed, It Was The Best Of Teams, It Was The Worst Of Teams, to not win the top cash prize, either the #2 or #3 seeds had to beat them fair and square, a feat that only one team had been able to do to them in the last two months.
It was a tough room, and the longer quiz (76 questions!) meant that only the true champions would make it through unscathed, and so it happened. I Didn’t Choose The Trivia Life, The Trivia Life Chose Me, covered in tons of fake tats and other accoutrements, pulled it out, winning the top prize of $500 and four free passes to the Trivia Championships of North America.
Second Place went to the top seed, worth $200 and four passes to see Blue Man Group, plus other prizes. The bronze went to Actually, It’s All About Ethics In Pub Quiz, garnering half-price tickets to TCONA and an excellent package from American Geode.
Everyone got books, DVDs, theater tickets, and other prizes, just for being good enough to make the finals in the first place. It was fantastic, and we can’t wait to try it again in a few months. To say we’re grateful for your patronage really doesn’t do our feels justice. You guys are awesome, and we want to keep getting better for you.
Here’s the final score list. And here’s a gallery of all the teams, plus some other action shots from the night.
