‘Browncoats’ Grab Trivia Night Crown in Razor-Thin Finish

It’s often said, “Every point counts.”

Whoever said that no doubt was at tonight’s Trivia Ninjas Trivia Night at Zaffiro’s Pizzeria and Bar at the Parkwood 17 Marcus Theatres complex in Waite Park.

Just 21 points separated the top four teams. 21. That’s less than half the value of a question that everyone gets right. And it’s the tightest finish your Trivia Ninjas have seen yet.

And when all was said and done, “The Browncoats” took top honors this week — winning by just 8 points.

1. 3,365 — The Browncoats    
2. 3,357 — Bubba Ho-Tep!
3. 3,352 — We Won a Lifetime Achievement Award…Twice! (The Most Interesting Trivia Team in the World)
4. 3,344 — Steel Curtain
5. 2,919 — Jolly Jokers
6. 2,518 — Snow, It’s Not Just for Winter Anymore (The Team That Changes Its Name Every Week)
7. 1,985 — Rinke Noonan
8. 1,980 — Team Penguin
9. 1,680 — Sunshine and Rain

By the way, welcome to our three new teams:  “Rinke Noonan,” “Team Penguin” and “Sunshine and Rain.”  We’re glad you’ve joined us!

There were stories of gallantry (another word, by the way, that begins with “GAL”). For example,”We Won a Lifetime Achievement Award…Twice!” scored the night’s only trivia hog by being the only team to correctly identify a screenshot of the arcade game “Pengo.” But “Achievement” missed the win by misidentifying “Missile Command” as “Defender.” Sigh.

As for “The Browncoats,” they’re just thankful teammate Frank came up with “Gallifrey” as the home planet of “Dr. Who.” That was good for 250 points for both “The Browncoats” and “Bubba Ho-Tep!”

It all made for an exciting finish. Will things be this close next week? Join us at Zaffiro’s Pizzeria and Bar at 6:30 on May 8th and find out!

Always remember, any team can win on any given night. It all depends on how the categories and questions fall.
