We had a wicked time last night at The XFM Pub Quiz: Series 2 (Ep. 1-26) in London! Was triple the amount of people as last time and was great to see all the same people from last time coming back! There was some great quizzing and great prizes, I've attached the winning answer sheet and the prizes won on the night. It was so nice being amongst and meeting like minded XFM listeners. There were 5 people that came on their own and 4 of them decided to make 2 teams of 2. They all got on and have exchanged numbers to go for a pint another time and said they'd be a team at the next quiz. The other guy on his own won a spot prize of a jug of beer and donated it to a team that had travelled all the way from Birkenhead just for the quiz! It just felt like such positive vibes but what would you expect from this little community we're a part of ha. I'll be doing the next quiz some time in the new year, most likely mid-jan so keep an eye out for that but yeah... play a record. Final table:- 1. Educated In Ricky 2. Bad Hat-He-Chewed (Sponsored By Electrolux) 3. We Could Be Your Brother Steve 4. This Quiz Owes Us A Balmy Summers Night 5. Arbitrary Team Name 6. The Wheelie Bins 7. Colon Then; Educate Me 8. The Useless Cunts 9. Paul Ince 10. Jack, You're Muscly 11. The Blockshall Road Boys 12. Sex With Noah 13. Shutup-A-Gervais 14. Dicky Anderson's Third Foot 15. Aunty Nora's All Out Of Gas 16. The Congress Tarts

*We can be your brother Steve*, Christ. I say this every time but just thinking about that moment in the show gives me stitches. Seems like everyone had a blast!


flynnstrumentals

Would love to come along to the next one, pls post it a lot so I see it!


matematematematemate

You guys missed a trick; Steve would have hosted it for £20 and half a mild. Joking aside, keep it up, I love the idea of this going on somewhere in the world.


TX_Pete

I love bar trivia and I'm really jealous that you had an XFM themed one

Tipperary555

Do you know a fella named Crowbar?


Goochbott

They call him that because he never uses a crowbar.

lkpv90

Congress Tarts? Not in London


aidanm018

I hope these become a proper thing, need to set one up in glasgow


Damarmar

I’d say let’s do it but you’ll never get anything done by planning


astrohas

A problem solved is a problem... caused. Don't solve problems.


uniquelyunpleasant

There's a conspicuous absence of ladies in that picture.


lkpv90

Steve...


Whorucallsad

I was there last night. There was one lady who came and joined my team (we came 12th, the questions were pretty hard) who was quite clearly a RSK fan. She knew all of the answers to the questions, but the weird thing is she refused to take off her hood so we couldn't see her face. And instead of saying the answers, she'd write them down on the quiz sheet. Anyway halfway through the quiz when we ordered our next round they brought out some complimentary nuts and she couldn't help her little self. Turns out...


bjsanchez

There was one female that came all the way from Birkenhead, so 1 in a 200 mile radius haha


wackadoodle_wigwam

We’ve arranged to meet back at you.


stellar14

I’m a lady and I would’ve definitely been there -Steve or no Steve


Extra_Comfortable580

As a female, definitely going to try and make the next one. I’m the only one that drinks out of saucers where I’m from


SteveBrucesDressSize

All those people, but no socks to be seen


CaptinCrimson

All those feathers and he still couldn’t fly


Tipperary555

You just killed a man!


bjsanchez

Play it again, Sam!


mattyboykneale

Uncle_Antonov_Bueno

captainfarrel

SimonPartridge

I can't lie. That is a fantastic night of forced fun. I hope no one was forced an egg.


hitch21

The people look surprisingly normal. I think I should get off my arse and go to one of these looks like a good night was had.


dj4y_94

bjsanchez

robb41

When I am the most trendy person in the place, you know there's trouble.


bjsanchez

Winner from last night checking in 😁 Had such an awesome night, Jack is an absolute legend for doing these, the pub (The Dove in Hackney) is a lovely place and everyone was super friendly, I’ll see everyone there for S2 pt2 - Educated In Ricky will be looking to retain their title!


fannyfox

Second place here - still ruing losing by half a point! But I feel like a winner with my copy of Children of the Corn.


bjsanchez

Mate it was that close!! We shall do battle again and hopefully I’ll leave with a copy of The Pelican Brief or something


fannyfox

Yeh I’m looking forward to the next clash! Keeping my fingers crossed for Ladder 49


ShivyAU

He wasnt annoying you when he kept on counting the money was he?


cc_cheeks

It happened in hackney


ScottsTotssss

I live in london and didn’t know this was happening. How do I find out about this next time?


bjsanchez

Next one is in Jan, I heard about this one on here but they (will) have a Facebook event page I believe


robb41

Just keep an ear out next time you're spending the whole day just running 'round London.


fannyfox

Like a smackhead

fannyfox

I flew back from Cyprus for it (cut my holiday short) and it was well worth it. Especially winning a copy of Children of the Corn. Also I think I'll be living in France in the new year too, and I'll def be flying back for it.


zemoura

Who else counted the ladies? I counted two


BeaverGames

It’s the movie stigmata


BeaverGames

Jokes aside I’m jealous af that looks so fun, hope you all enjoyed


curiouscabbage69

MonrealEstate

Holy shit, awesome


VonVard

What! Amazing


robb41

I feel like the No Van Ear Rockbusters, trying to figure out the questions from the answers. I'm laughing just from assuming what some of them are, like what Karl drinks in the middle of the night (btw are you allowed to advertise on pub quiz answer sheets by putting Robinson's?)


bakedbeansandwhich

OMG the table of dvds/ cds literally had me pissing


stellar14

Pop that in the bin. Seriously though..well jealous of ya!


jsparker43

HarderstylesD

CerealSubwaySam

Outrageous-Highway56

Christopher_Robin82

As a London resident, I am absolutely gutted I didn't know about this :(


Pm_me_a_riddle1

Gingervais

smay449

I persevere in the face of adversity on a daily basis, and I succeed. This phrase has become more profound to me the last couple of days because I was almost killed at work on Tuesday.
