(REVISED January 16, 2020) Captain’s Log – Trivia Game Highlights (2020)

 Editor’s note: This will be an ongoing “log” of all of the trivia games that me and my trivia team play in 2020 beginning the week of January 6, 2020 and will be periodically edited/updated. Information provided in this “log” will include game scores, prize winnings (for regular games and tournament games), players in attendance, the number of teams in contention, game winners and final questions. To view full recaps of trivia games, click on the category “trivia recaps.”  

Log entries for regulation Sporcle Live games will be denoted in orange. Log entries for regulation My Trivia Live games will be denoted in blue. Log entries for non-regulation games in both leagues will be denoted in black

As a change from the 2019 captain’s log, I will be providing answers to the final questions in the log entries. I’ll also continue to “attempt” to provide answers to all of the questions in game recaps (in the comments section), though occasionally I may be too busy and won’t be able to do it.
