Weeknights may not be as exciting as weekends; that’s simply a given.

You can’t really stay out too late (without a seriously rough morning at work the next day, that is) and it’s already hard enough to wrangle your friends together for a night out.

So what could be better to accompany a few beers during an easy pub night than a quick game of wits, knowledge, and the occasional stroke of good luck?
