We’re back, baby, and we’re better than ever!* Fall Brawl II kicks off on September 13th, and we can’t wait to see you nerds onscreen again. Sign-ups begin today! You can register here. We had a whopping 50 teams vie for the title last year, and despite our ever-so-slight return to “normal”, we know there are at least a few dozen who still prefer the virtual format. For the others of you who have returned to live quizzing, worry not….you’ll have the opportunity to do both.
For those unfamiliar- your team plays weekly in a private 45-minute Zoom session with a JGT-certified host, giving you a chance to interact with friends near and far while playing your favorite brand of trivia. Sessions are available Mon-Thurs between 7 and 10:45 PM Eastern.
SCHEDULE: Season starts the week of September 13th. 8-week regular season followed by 2 weeks of playoffs/consolation games. 9 games guaranteed to all teams.
LEAGUE FORMAT: Depending on how many teams we end up with, it’ll either be broken into divisions with “head-to-head” matchups each week, or kept as an overall seeding format with a tournament bracket for the playoffs.
PRICE: $425 per team, with $25 of that going to charity (PPERC). $200 deposit due by 9/13, balance due by 10/4.
Here they are, our scores with one week left to go in the regular season. Those brackets at the bottom are starting to get interesting. SLTS takes the top spot back over, and a couple of new teams hop into the Top 14: FFSF the Jawns, while Super Spreaders and Pop Fit drop into the hoi polloi. One final week to play before the playoffs, might try to make this one a bit tougher so we can see if we can make some of those numbers bounce around.
The Oscars are on April 25th, and we’re ready to celebrate. J Michael will be your host for our first annual Ultimate Oscars Pregame Quizzo. Questions about the past 91 years of the best films of all time (and, well, some bad films that somehow snuck into the mix). Furthermore, Oscars is a great party night, so we’ll have Bartender Dan (below) teaching us how to make a couple of Oscars specific drinks. Here’s how that will work; you sign your team for the quiz ($40 gets your whole team in for the quiz) then a few days before the quiz, we’ll send you an email with your zoom invite and the ingredients for our Sunday night drinks. And we’ll wrap the whole thing up just in time for the Oscars to begin. Hope you’ll join us!
Quite a bit of movement on our leaderboard after a tough Week 2 quiz. That includes a spectacular collapse for the Super Spreaders, who went from our Top Score to out of our First Fourteen (the teams that would have a first round bye if the season ended today). Congrats to Quarantine Spirit, who have taken over the top spot. And remember, you can click on brackets at the bottom to see what the tourney would look like if the season ended today. (Shout out to Carl for making that page happen…really freaking cool).
