The June 2015 BA Pub Quiz brought five teams together for a midwinter clash of trivia prowess, and a spirited battle for second place. Top spot only ever belonged to one side, though, as Bestias Afuera brought Cat’s Whiskers’ run of wins to an end by an impressive margin of six points. Oliver’s Army won the honesty prize (there is no prize for honesty) for pointing out they were playing with an extra player – but had four points deducted (one per extra player per round) all the same, and finished bottom as a result; better luck next time to them and everyone else!

Team Round 1 Round 2 Round 3 Round 4
Bestias Afuera 9 34 41 ½ 49 ½
Cat’s Whiskers 7 30 36 ½ 43 ½
Educated Guessers 5 28 33 ½ 41 ½
Los Pochoclos 6 20 26 ½ 32 ½
Oliver’s Army* 7 (-1) 20 ½ (-1) 27 (-1) 35 (-1)

*Oliver’s Army played with seven players throughout – one more than the six per team maximum – and as such forfeited one point per round. The scores given in the table refer to the number of points they actually won, but with 4 points deducted they ended the night on 31.

Cat's Whiskers had to settle for second this month (though they got the same bottle of fizzy wine shared between fewer people, so who ended up winning really?)
