League Scores: scores and stats

Ottawa Trivia League: sponsored by the law firm of Burke-Robertson LLP

In the Ottawa Trivia League, the same game is played in every location, with the scores compared against one another. Each week, the top team anywhere in Ottawa gets 10 pts, the next highest gets 9 pts, then 8, and so on. (These are raw scores, without handicaps). Every bar's winner gets at least 1 pt. After 10 weeks, we determine a winner and start again!

We can let you know about pub trivia news, such as cancellations, score changes, new locations and other trivia events around town. when new games come up.

House rules:

  • A "country" or "nation" is any UN member, plus the Vatican, Taiwan and Kosovo.
  • A "movie" never means a TV movie, unless specified otherwise.
  • If we ask for a pope or a monarch, we also want either the regnal number (Richard II) or the sobriquet (Richard the Lion-hearted). An answer of just "Richard" is assumed to be Richard I. (Exception: Elizabeth can refer to either one.)
  • We're indifferent to Junior, Senior and so forth. We won't penalize you if you say John Jacob Astor IV when it's John Jacob Astor III.
  • We usually use gender-neutral terms, so "actor" might mean a female actor, unless its the Oscar for "Best (Supporting) Actor."
  • Teams We Miss (Who Never Got Ranked Above)

    1. Barley Mow: Mooseheads, Bengals, Bagger Vances, Barley Yobs, Special Edz, Groundhogs, James' Posse, Unsocialbles, T42, Jora, Salty Dogs, Dandelions, Repeates, Ladies in Waiting, Order of Evil Monkeys, Paul Paquet Fan Club, Hot Buttered Elves, Trivids
    2. Bank Oak: Venon and Spice to the Maxx, Otherwise It Would Just Be Dodgeball, Eleven Days Until the Emperor's Parade, Leon Carls, North Bay Rugby

    Special guests: In thePhoto Gallery, we have some shots of the Mow, including images of the nights that Ed Broadbent and Global News came over, as well as shots of me and some of the teams. Don Newman also shows up from time to time.

    First game: The very game at the Barley Mow was on September 7, 1998, although there were two games before that in the Kanata location. We began at the Royal Oak in September 2006, and then the Arrow & Loon, which followed in January 2009. The Pump started January 2010, and things pretty much exploded from there.

    Highest score (single game): This depends on how you look at it.

    • The Unsocialbles are the only team to ever register a perfect score, doing so in 2000 when the maximum possible score was 35.
    • In 2002, we started a 50-pt game. The highest ever score was registered by Fran Mahovlich (sic) who got 49, missing only the number question.
    • In 2007, we started league play and a 55-pt game: the record had been 53 by Nautically Themed Pashmina Afghan, set in July 2011, until the Streetcars beat it, at 53.5, in 2015.
    • Since we started the 55 pt game, the highest known number of points "per capita" is 46, a record set by Megan MacLeod of Simple Minds at the Wellington Oak. In 2015, a man from Baltimore scored a 49.5.

    Highest score (season): In 2013, Nerd Alert got 80, beating Narwalrus's 77.

    Highest score (first round): With the small team bonus, it is possible for a team to have more than 20 pts in Round One. In 2012, President's Choice became the first to do so, scoring 21.5 at the Bank Oak. In 2014, Lack of Creativity matched this at the "Other Bank," the Oak at Gloucester.

    Biggest handicap: The Wirecrats hold this record, at -15, set at the Wellington Oak, beating the record they had set at the Mow. The Wirecrats and Team VI are the only teams to ever have active handicaps in three bars at once.
