Winners of the MGA’s Annual Battle of the Brains 2023

Who won and lost at this evening of fun and quizzing for Monash HDR students?

The answer: Everybody won!

Because fun was had by all at the MGA Annual HDR Trivia Night on Thursday, 15 June 2023.

While many of the 140 participating students were content to make merry with a splash of competition over free pizza and drinks, some took their trivia a little more seriously…

Winners: Sliding in sideways with a ‘re-brand’ came 2022 returning champions from the Faculty of Science, Mighty Morphin’ Power Cascade Arrangers with a score of 135 points!

Runners up: Not so far behind came two other teams: Reviewer #2 at 131 points and Missing Factor of 2 at 130 points.

Wooden Spoon: 7 Dwarves, who should be commended for their LOLs when they got their award.

Best team name: They don’t know that we know that they know that we don’t know. But what we want to know is what do they know that we don’t? Hmmmm.

Thanks to all the HDRs who came along and made it such a fun evening! Scroll down for a list of the final scores (and fabulous team names) plus photos from the night.
