Quiz Results September 2014

The September quiz was a well-attended affair at La Cigale; the turnout was certainly more impressive than my promptness at putting the results online (sorry, everyone!). Seven teams fought it out for the honour of a bottle of Mumm or DUC, and whilst Spider Dawgs may have had to content themselves with the wooden spoon, they at least won a figurative tip of the hat for having the best team name. Smart Beauties took the honours, with the Cat’s Whiskers earning second place. See you all next month! Team Round 1 Round 2 Round 3 Round 4 Smart Beauties 8 32 42 51 Cat’s Whiskers 7 31 41 49 Puppies Dressed As Cats 9 31 41 47 Team Burton 7 28 34 43 Dream Team 6 28 35 41 Educated Guessers 7 26 35 40 Spider Dawgs 7 25 33 39...

Quiz Results August 2014

We had a quiz almost two weeks ago, you know. Here are the results, with many apologies for not remembering to put them up sooner. It was a nail-biter, but in the end Quiz Ass, Quiz Ass, Quiz Ass defended their title, though it took a tie-breaker to decide it (hat tip to Mark of Bestias Afuera for pointing out I’d accidentally given them a point too many during round three, and thus taking it to that tie-breaker). First-timers Patagones might have finished fifth, but just 9½ points is a remarkably short gap between fifth and first place, so well done to all the competitors – and see you next month! Team Round 1 Round 2 Round 3 Round 4 Quiz Ass, Quiz Ass, Quiz Ass 9 34 41 51 Bestias Afuera 10 34 42 51 Educated Guessers 9 31 39 45 Los Juntados 7 27 36 43 Patagones 8 30½ 36½ 41½ The tie-break was to guess the population of Palermo, the most populous barrio of Buenos Aires, according to the 2010 Argentine census. The closest guess would take the glory. Quiz Ass, Quiz Ass, Quiz Ass guessed 220,000 whilst Bestias Afuera rather ambitiously went for 1.1 million. The answer is 225,245....

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...
