Muse #376 - and I loved it a lot
One of our team members had their birthday recently and we all played trivia games online. And I am glad to say that I sucked at it.
We played several rounds that I quite enjoyed playing - but ended up dead last at least 3 times. Not even giving random answers got me some points. In one round, all my random picks ended up giving me a score of - Zero!
Well, this just confirms my lack of interest in trivia, especially in the categories played which included entertainment, sports, music, and movies. I placed last in 3 of them and next to last in one. I was middle of the pack in geography. And no one dared to pick my favorite categories - history, sciences, and the arts. Seems those are not the favorite kind for general trivia players.
But then again, I was sure that I would end up at the bottom even before I started. So, it was no surprise that I ended up there. I am a slow thinker in most situations where I make deliberate choices from multiple perspectives - and rapid-fire trivia games are not suited for that. One needs to know the answer or come up with the best guess by elimination quickly, neither of them being my forte.
In summary, I sucked at this gameplay but had the most fun in being a loser. No one can beat that. For sure. And I can bet on it.
