Theme Trivia Night – Buffy the Vampire Slayer (May 16, 2019)

Answers are in the comments…

A couple of us Buffy the Vampire Slayer “fangirls” (Angie and I) met up to do battle on a Buffy trivia night Thursday at Haymaker Ann Arbor. Our mission on this night was not to kill all of the demons guarding the Hellmouth ergo closing it for business permanently – but we did have fun slaying a few tough questions and reminiscing about that fun TV series! We both agreed that Spike was a better boyfriend for Buffy than Angel (LOL)! We also agreed that Dawn was ANNOYING! And we…both have “girl crushes” on Faith!

Faith was the “bad girl” counterpart to Buffy’s “good girl.”

 

And the questions, which WILL be very, very abbreviated…hope you’re all “five by five” with that!

2. Ghouls – What was the collective name of the four ghouls who appear in the episode Hush? 9

3. Birthplaces – What is the city and state where Riley Finn was born? Miss for 1. Knew the state, not the city.

Got two of these correct.

Final Category – Series Regulars

Name the six characters appearing in 50 episodes or more aside from Buffy, Willow, Giles and Xander.

Managed to get four correct…

Fun theme night! When you’re not paying to play, it makes it easier to “play for fun!” Next theme night “tentatively” on the agenda is the ’80s music night Thursday, may 30. We’ve done well with the ’80s theme nights in the past, we’ll see if we can keep that hot streak alive!
