Trivia Seattle Style

More trivia! With Mefites! Outdoors is an option if the weather is good or we just want the fresh air. Warning: Since restarting, there have been no questions about Central European rivers. After a rocky start, I am pleased to report the onion rings are better than ever.

More Trivia. More Onion Rings. More Winning.

Let’s follow up on the very enjoyable victory of last week, where the admixture of non-regulars (non-Metafilterians, even!) was essential to our success.

T(rivia)hird time’s a charm

MeFi trivia must not succumb to entropy in 2020. There are onion rings to be consumed and arch-rivals to be defeated.

Twenty Twenty Trivia Time

In the body of the post, I propose to describe the life-altering event that Metafilterians will experience as they gather at the George & Dragon, greet those attending for the first time (or the first time in a long time), greet the grizzled veterans of past battles and flex their metaphorical mental muscles.

By George, it’s time again for some head scratching.

We’ve spent a sufficient amount of time resting on our laurels. Let’s gather again for trivia and onion rings. As always, if you haven’t come before, please consider joining us. We were all starry-eyed neophytes at one time and are living proof that trivia causes no immediately perceptible harm.

Trivia like it used to be.

Trivia reboot! Let’s re-establish (that there is a hyphen) our dominance in the trivia world. If you’ve attended before, come again. If you’ve never attended we’d love to see you. We do not let the trivia interfere with enjoying each other’s company.

Wait - no trivia last week?

Yes, sometimes less important things interfere with the one true transcendent experience that is trivia at the George & Dragon. Let's gather once again this coming Tuesday to enjoy triviality. Come if you can!

Again with the trivia?

Yes. Join us. Onion rings. If you’ve thought of coming for the first time, have come before but not for a while, or are a regular that missed the 20th birthday triumph, here is your chance. This is a happy occasion to be shared.

Trivia: Just ask the Axis

Stretching the hometown hero Jimi theme: Let's do it again! We failed to win this week but were still able to review cgc373’s recent book acquisitions. They were, as usual, edifying and inspirational. But seriously: we did not win because you were not there. Do you want that on your permanent record for another week? I thought not. See you next Tuesday!

Nothing is actually Trivial.

*sssschchchsssss* Hello? *ghghssssghss* Can you hear me? *ssssssss* My illness has carried me to the Other Side and I must warn you of danger. The being who will present itself as Skys#*craper at the George & Dragon on Tuesday is not me. Rescue me but, more impor#(4’tantly, save the known universe by attending trigggghhvia night and wresting my very existence from the grasp of this ghoulish conspiracy, by corrapprmectly answering the trivia challenges - and ignoring the tempting, but erroneous, answers offered by the odious PseudoSkyscraper. Save me. Save humanity. [more inside]

Battered but victorious, we move on into the future. Join us! In your thousands! Imagine a world in which all trivia teams, everywhere in the universe, are composed solely of MeFites. That, my friends, is a future we can make happen, if only you - yes you! - believe. If only you act. If only you will share in our onion rings. Join us. [more inside]

Trivia Yet Again

Well, one of our Nemesis teams showed up in full force last week and defeated us 34-31. While it was refreshing to be challenged, it was not refreshing to lose. You could be the difference. As mentioned previously, if you haven’t attended before or haven’t in a while, we would love to have you with us. Some of us who attend frequently are not instrumental in achieving victory, so please don’t feel intimidated. As a bonus, more inside is a response to ChrisR’s challenge for team names playing off our usual “Manifest Destiny’s Child”. I have taken some liberties with his criteria. [more inside]

United we stand. Divided we sit, eat onion rings and win.

Trivia: Torn asunder from within by our burgeoning ranks, let us find a way forward that makes us one again. Unless there are seven or more of us.

Trivia Early Warning System - In compensation for last week’s secretive alert. MeFites needed! Last week proved (as if more proof was needed) that ChrisR and I are not sufficient for victory.
