Game of Thrones

House of Stark vs House of Lannister in the Game of Thrones For Trivia Night 2019, we joined forces with another table to pull off our theme. Like it is every year, the evening was a hoot. We came in like 4th or 5th trivia-wise, but none of that really matters as it’s all for […]

But she had the original, definitive version on cassette, Jeremy had a VHS player and I was able to borrow a screen and projector. A week later we congregated as storms brewed outside and watched the 1979 film about gangs and dressing […]
