Quiz Cup of New York Season 4, Week 1 Recap – And We’re Off!

It wouldn’t be the Quiz Cup without a few surprises right off the bat. This week, the defending champions, Pierce Brosnan Runs Like A Girl, stuttered ever so slightly out of the gate due to an odd countdown question, and the slight uptick in difficulty threw teams all week long.
(Cue THIS AIN’T KINDERGARTEN ANYMORE & other random stone-cold machismo).

Really, though, there’s a reason that a QCNY Season is eight weeks long, and why you can get multiple kicks at the can every week. Trivia is a weird animal. Hard to tame, sometimes petulant, but when you master it, even for a few questions at a time, it can be the best friend you ever had. When you string a few facts together, suddenly the world is a little better, the sun shines brighter, the weather gets warmer, and everyone you meet is just that much more awesome. Discovering that you know something you didn’t know you knew? That’s a great feeling.

And with a record number of teams playing this season, we’ve got a massive wave of awesome washing through the city. Are you a part of it?


You can look at the full Week 1 score table here.

And we’ll end with one of the songs from last week’s audio round, from Scotland’s greatest-ever band.
