ThinkGeek's 4th Geek Trivia Night was a triumph

Geek Trivia Night

So many geeky brains in one room! <3

We're making a note here: HUGE SUCCESS.

Despite some snow challenges & rescheduling, our fourth Geek Trivia night was EPIC! This is also marked our Geek Trivia Night one year anniversary, and you chuckleheads managed to make it one of the best nights evar.

There were plenty of old & new faces, and everybody brought their A-game.

There was no "Best Dressed" category, but the Suddenly Cylons were definitely in the running for it! Bow ties are cool.

After a year of hosting these, we were a bit nervous and had to wonder, "Will this be as good as the last?" The answer: YES. The difficulty of questions was increased this time (or so we think... seriously, though, challenging a room full of geeks is tough!) with question rounds such as the "Name that sidekick" and an audio round where you had to name the movie based on the theme song... played on the ukulele. But some of you stepped up to the plate and really delivered. For the rest, we know we definitely had your brains churning! Mwahaha. Mission accomplished. We're a bit disappointed that no one got to wear the dunce cap AKA chicken head mask. Even though we egged you on. You know who you are.

The prizes & feared Chicken Head of Doom.

The Council of Elders were the judges for the night. They decide your fate!

With Pi Day so near, we had to celebrate with pie of course. Our volunteer monkeys created beautiful pies just for the occasion. The contestants might not have had the chance to appreciate their masterpieces, but sure looks like they enjoyed it!

Mmm, pie. Secret: It's just graham crackers, cherry pie filling, & whip cream.

EAT!!!

The winning pie-eating contestant from the team Mind Palace! That's a look of joy & happiness, we're sure.

Still trying to finish the pie even after the winner was announced. The pie was *that* good.

By the end of the night, the scores were all very close; it could be anybody's game. The final wager round would decide everything. Being ever so generous, we let the teams choose their fate: Do they want the "Easy" or "Hard" question? You all made us proud when there was a hearty cheer for "Hard!" Steve the MC may have even shed a tear.

If you were there, you might remember that not a single team got it right that night. The question: What was the first toy the LEGO company ever produced?*

As we watched several teams' scores drop to 0, there were a few teams remaining. They had wagered well! (With one team betting 0 points... you know who you are.) The final results were: The Away Team in first, League of Evil Exes in second, and Mind Palace in third. Congratulations to our winning teams!

First Place Winners: The Away Team! They each won $75 gift certificates & R2-D2 USB Car Chargers. Second place won $35 gift certificates & Star Trek U.S.S. Enterprise D Pizza Cutters. And third place won $25 gift certificates each. Congratulations again!

Thank you to all our attendees for making Geek Trivia Night a wonderful time! We had so much fun and hope to do it again soon. Thank you to Steve the MC and all the TG staff volunteers as well. We couldn't have done it without you! If you have any comments or feedback, please feel free to leave it in the comments section below.

*Answer: A wooden toy duck.
