Quiz Night August 2014

The bitter, biting cold of those couple of early mornings in mid-July has passed, and before long spring will be in the Buenos Aires air. Before it really arrives, though, there’s still time for us to squeeze in one last bout of winter trivia*, so make your way to La Cigale for the August edition of the Buenos Aires Pub Quiz! *I am aware that September’s quiz will take place in winter as well, technically. But early-mid-September rarely feels like winter in this city. The rules, if you need reminding of them: Three rounds of 10 general knowledge questions, one alphabet-themed round of 25 questions Teams of up to 6 people allowed AR$15  per person Prizes for the winners and runners-up The quiz will take place on Monday, 11th August, starting at 7:30pm at La Cigale: 25 de Mayo 597 (corner of Tucumán).

Quiz Results July 2014

On the evening after Argentina’s World Cup final loss to Germany, we were treated to a second titanic head-to-head tussle in just over 24 hours, as reigning champions the Educated Guessers were challenged by the only other team brave enough to show up, the newly-formed Quiz Ass, Quiz Ass, Quiz Ass. It was an evening of high drama as – true to Argentina’s 1986 World Cup victory – Quiz Ass raced into a comfortable lead before throwing it away towards the end and then pulling away again towards the death. Hard luck, Educated Guessers, but we hope to see you again in August! The scores are right here. Team Round 1 Round 2 Round 3 Round 4 Quiz Ass, Quiz Ass, Quiz Ass 10 35 40 50 Educated Guessers 8 32* 40 48 *Educated Guessers awarded an extra point for giving the Quizmaster cake during the half time break. This was a one-off due to only two teams being involved, and will not be accepted as a regular...

Well, there’s always the Buenos Aires Pub Quiz to occupy you for one of them, at least!

Quiz Results June 2014

A good time was had by all at the June quiz, and after the Educated Guessers found themselves one of three teams tied in second after the first round, they took control in the subsequent three rounds to emerge victorious for the first time since they started competing in the Buenos Aires Pub Quiz – congratulations to them! Huge thanks also to one of their number, Leigh, who leant me his phone for the team photos after I realised I’d left my memory card at home… The scores and team photos are below. See you all next month! Team Round 1 Round 2 Round 3 Round 4 Educated Guessers 6 30 38 48 Team Miguel 5 29 37 46 AAK! 6 28 36 45 The Four Musketeers 7 28 37 43½ Boca Boozers 6 23 31 36...

Quiz Results May 2014

Thanks to Stella for reminding me of this (I’m still new, you’ll have to bear with me)! I never put up the scores and pictures from last month’s quiz, so here they are now. Cat’s Whiskers took an early lead in the first round, maintained it by being one of three teams to get full marks on the alphabet round, and then extended it in the last two rounds to run out winners by three points. Full scores and all the team photos are below. The Quizmaster acknowledges a mistake was made with on question – the one about the Beatles’ first U.S. number 1 – but fortunately it didn’t affect the final standings. It won’t happen again (or if it does, I’ll just keep talking over anyone who complains). Team Round 1 Round 2 Round 3 Round 4 Cat’s Whiskers 9 34 44 52 The Dean 8 33 42 49 #VeryGrosso 7 32 42 48 Educated Guessers 6 30 39 43 Little Blue Pills 8 31 38½ 42 Devridiens 6 30 38 42 Hard Cock Cafe 5 29 38 42 Smarty Pints 8 32 42...
