Trivia Recap – Game # 685 – June 10, 2022 – Virtual Sporcle “Pub Quiz” Format

A final trivia question about time zones resulted in a brief bout of bickering between us two players. These things happen in trivia games. But I’m just gonna say – if you HAVE to ask a host to clarify what they mean with a final question, it probably means you won’t get it correct! More about that if you read on…

1 Animals – Frogs, salamanders, and newts are examples of what class of animal, which gets it name from the Greek meaning “having two modes of existence”?

2 ’60s Music – In the 1960s, what band released albums titled Surfer Girl, Little Deuce Coupe, and All Summer Long? Two children of Boomers are gonna be hard pressed to miss this…

3 World Cities – What world capital city is the most populous metropolitan area with an English name that begins with the letter “C?”

4 TV Hosts – Matt Lucas and Noel Fielding are the co-hosts of what TV competition cooking series centered around pastries and desserts? No clue…miss.

Got all of these correct.

5 Fruit – What fruit with a “B” name, which has comparatively large seeds and a deep maroon color, is a cross between the European raspberry, European blackberry, American dewberry, and loganberry?

6 Poems – The poem commonly known as “Over the River and Through the Woods” was written for what holiday, as referenced in its official title?

7 Math – Excluding the number 1, what is the 1st positive number that’s both a square and a cube? This was all my trivia pardner Mike here, maff is not my thang…

Mystery Round Two – Current Events

Answer the questions about events that have taken place recently.

M1. On June 3, Ann Turner Cook passed away at the age of 95. She was an educator and novelist, but was best known as the face of products by what company, due to a drawing of her made when she was a baby?

M2. In late May, a climate change activist smeared pie on the case holding what work of art at the Louvre?

M3. During a friendly match against Uruguay, the U.S. men’s national soccer team wore orange armbands in support of what?

M4. What is the name of the first named storm of the 2022 Atlantic hurricane season, a tropical storm that caused flooding in Cuba and Florida?

Got all of these correct. We were in fourth going into the final with 50 points.

Final Category – Time Zones

Name either of the locations in the U.S. that are located in the Atlantic Time Zone.

We asked the host if territories would be included as correct answers but he gave no real answer yes or no. So we opted not to go with a territory for our answer and…got it wrong. It happens, sometimes you zig when you shoulda zagged. No point crying over spilled trivia!

As always, Go Pods, and stay classy, tropical storm Alex!
