I still remember attending my first Trivia night back in 2013. A group of my coworkers were discussing some options for happy hour venues and when we saw that a spot down the street was hosting a Trivia Night, we decided to go for it. I was instantly hooked. When the opportunity arose to join the Last Call team, I was ecstatic. Working with a talented and creative team to spread my love of trivia across the country-what could be better! I currently manage sales and outreach in our west coast areas. Outside of work, I love to travel and am also an avid equestrian and Disney movie lover.

Round One

 

Today’s game kicks off with a Movies Trivia question about a popular 90s comedy. And if the decade has you feeling nostalgic, be sure to check out Episode #6 of the Podcast for a whole round of 90s Trivia!

 

Next up, a Book Link Trivia question calls on our Team to name the author of three fantastical children’s books. Spoiler alert: This actress starred in a film adaptation of one of this author’s most well-known works.

 

The round concludes with a Food Trivia question about the origins of the brand name “Spam.” Have you ever wondered what Spam is made of? According to the brand, it includes these six ingredients.

 

Bonus Question

 

Today’s Bonus Question takes a closer look at the answer to the Food questions from the first round. The Trivia Team is challenged to guess how many countries Spam is sold in. They start by estimating the total number of countries in the world and narrowing it down from there. Listen in to see how close your guess stacks up!

Round Two

 

Now that we’ve got our minds all warmed up, let’s get physical. In today’s theme round, we’re pushing ourselves to the limit with Exercise Trivia!

 

Round Two begins with a Health & Fitness Trivia question about some acronyms and terminology that are often used in a popular fitness program. Learn more about some common – and not so common – forms of exercise here!

 

Next, an Anatomy Trivia question asks the team to drill down to the muscles at work behind the movements. Adding muscle-building movements into your workout plan can have a number of benefits. Evidence has even shown that it can reduce your risk of several serious diseases.

 

Round Two concludes with a Supplements Trivia question about a natural substance that’s popular with athletes. Speaking of natural substances that have been used for their physical benefits, did you know about all of the ailments peppermint has historically been used to treat?

 

Final Question

 

It’s time to wrap up the game with a multi-part Final Question. The category for today’s final is Television, and it’s time for all of you TV foodies to shine!

 

The Trivia Team is given a list of four food shows and asked to place them in order by the year that they premiered from earliest to most recent. While none of the players are avid fans of the shows, there are several interesting methodologies they use to talk through the question. Could you help the Team land the right answer?
