Ken and Peggy Sue do an excellent job of keeping us entertained with trivia each week, but they needed a week off for Ken to recoup from surgery (get well soon Ken!). So……

Team Biker Barn took home the win last time, thanks in part to their great team members including Carlos & Raisa, Mary Bramlett, and Ray Jacobsen who wowed the crowd with his WORM for the win.

New quests, even more fun – and of course, QUESTICLES! See you Thursday – the most fun adult game show you’ll ever see!

Karaoke – Every Friday!
