Professors’ Trivia Night, 2018
May 16, 2018, saw the second annual installment of our department’s trivia contest, held in a dank pub basement, and featuring solely the professors in our School…. and the daughter of one of said professors.
Last year’s event is archived here.
Previous installments of public trivia night which I have hosted are archived in these links: 2016, 2017, and 2018. And, to be blunt, this year’s Professors’ game was a watered down rehash of the 2018 public game. But, for the sake of completion, I’m blogging about it anyway.
Teams were separated along gender lines, because we’re progressive like that. The men’s team was creatively named “The Boys”. And the women discovered that they were all alumni of Queen’s University, so called themselves The Queens. I exercised editorial licence and renamed them The Estrogen Queens, since we badly needed some health sciences content in our team names, and “The Boys” clearly weren’t pulling their creative weight.
