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.

Sorry not sorry

I just realized that you can sing Van Halen’s Panama with the word “trivia” and now I’m sharing that knowledge with you.

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!

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!

Three-by trivia

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]

Trivia in Mission Bay?

Spark Social - a pile of food trucks and fire pits Mission Bay- hosts trivia on Wednesdays. It’s been a minute since we’ve had an SF meetup - would folks be interested in grabbing some drinks and truck food, doing some mingling, and answering some questions in a few weeks?

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.

TEWS* ALERT

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.
