Great to see a bunch of new faces here at the Arsenal tonight!  Our usual Nerdz must be out of town, which means we had a new winner!  Shave My Back (pictured first) started off in the lead in the very first round and held on the entire time.  They matched a few teams with the successful double down in the third round as well as a strong connection round (where they got 9 out of 10).  They were definitely in the zone.  Congratulations on getting first!  Our second place team, 2 Teams 1 Stadium (pictured second), are no strangers to the winner's circle.  They returned to it tonight with a second place finish after a head to head match with Shave My Back.  They were only four points shy of first place; the only two rounds they didn't match Shave My Back was in the Guess Who Round and the final round.  They were still happy to go home with a $20 gift card.  The third place finisher is new to King Trivia and the Arsenal, but they commemorated the experience with a $10 gift card!  Not a bad start to a successful career!  Congratulations Team Kween (pictured third)!

The Nerds Take a Knee team (AKA I can haz Nerdz) took the Pro wrestling themed round to the next level.  They doubled down successfully, identifying all the former wrestlers turned actors, and proceeded to keep the rest of the teams on the ropes all the way to the final round.  Shave My Back (pictured 2nd) grabbed every folding chair they could find and smashed them into their competition, but could only get within one point of the Nerdz (pictured 1st).  Meanwhile, in the main bar area, the Primorsk Players (pictured 3rd) were waiting for their big moment to body slam the Nerdz.  Unfortunately, the Primorsk Players slipped on the top rope (in preparation for their big leap) and fell to a third place finish.  Congratulations to all our winners tonight!

It was a photo finish tonight in the packed Red Room at the Arsenal!  There was a lot of fresh blood in the room tonight, people that looked strangely familiar.  It's almost like I saw some of these people on TV somewhere.  But I digress...

In the end of the game tonight, Shave My Back (pictured third) and Uhhh... Emily? were tied for third.  The tie breaker question asked for the fastest timed mile ran by a male.  Shave My Back guessed within 2 seconds of the actual time!  It was an amazing way to finish third!  Meanwhile, at the top of the board, the teams were battling for first by naming the most mother sauces in French cooking and the 5 spices in the Chinese 5 spice blend.  Not a topic many people knew besides one guy in Jerome Made Us Do It.  It turns out he studied the 5 mother sauces in French cooking in preparation for another quiz game he likes to play in his spare time.  I couldn't remember the name of that game, but it sure helped Jerome Made Us Do It clinch the $50 gift card tonight!  Not to be forgotten, Those Bastards! (pictured second) held on long enough to secure second place and the $20 gift card by playing it smart until the very end.  Congratulations to all the winners and thank you to everyone for coming out tonight!
