Tonight, for the first time since December, 2018, I’ll be assembling a “team” of my own – with more than two players – for a My Tivia Live game. I have played as a “hired gun” in a couple of MTL tournaments since then, but haven’t gotten my own MTL “gang” together for quite a while! We played MTL games fairly regularly from 2016 to August, 2018.
I’ve actually been hoping a new MTL show would open up in my ‘hood! My team used to play at The Wurst Bar, but we lost interest in the trivia scene there, and the owner wound up hiring a different trivia company. The new company’s trivia nights only lasted about two months (if that long ).
We also played a couple of seasons at a “dive” bar called Powell’s, but one of players decided he didn’t want to play there anymore. My husband and I followed suit, and decided to stop playing there, too.
We tried out a Canton trivia spot late last year, but decided that spot wasn’t working out well, either. Sometimes you just don’t latch onto a trivia spot, for whatever reason. I hated the drives into Canton (I really, really don’t like Canton), and I was only able to get a couple of players out there. It just didn’t “feel” right, and the prizes were too elusive.
After that, my husband and I played MTL games occasionally, and played some tourneys as a “guest” player.
Tonight, I’ll have four players for this game (me, Mike, Brad and Evan). Let’s hope MTL can keep a show going here longer than Sporcle did last year, since it’s nice having trivia spots close to home!
I do plan to do one more Milan trivia game (until next spring) the first week of November. Speaking of Milan, it looks as though the Odd Side Ales tap takeover is done at The Owl. I jokingly asked a friend to bring me a howler of the hipster brunch stout when he plays there tonight (yuck)!
As always, we’ll see how it goes…
