It’s no real surprise to regular readers of this space that the leader, by far, in winning Monday Trivia contests is Randy Harris. He has 21.5 wins (shared win on Monday Trivia No. 40) out of the 106 trivia puzzles Will and I (and a few guest authors) have been writing for more than two years now.
Now, I don’t know if people will be surprised to learn who holds the #2 and #3 spots. Maybe even the holders themselves will be surprised, although they should not be. Mike Schilling has won 14 times, and Mark Thompson won 12 times in his own right and one time won one-third, sharing the glory of winning Monday Trivia No. 45 equally with two others. So he’s in third place with 12.333.
Other strong performers have been Plinko (5.33), Johanna (5), and Tod Kelly (4.33). Between these six players, that’s nearly 60% of the total victories. Congratulations! Rounding out the multiple winners are Alan Scott, Michael Cain, and Tom Van Dyke with three each; and Dan, Karl, Kolohe, and Rod with two each.
Also five times, there was no winner. That’ll never happen again; we’ve informally abolished deadlines and over time gotten better at figuring out how to pace out hints that become progressively more helpful. This doesn’t mean we’re going to stop or anything — I just thought that having put together a leaderboard, I’d share the results.
Again, congratulations to all the Monday Trivia winners, of whom there are presently a total of thirty-six.
