Greetings everyone. Well it was my 2nd gig as a sub and all in all it was a very fun evening. Brouwerij West is an awesome venue with tons of space and tables for the teams. It's a very easy setup for the Quizmaster since the house provides the sound and music! Richard the manager was an outstanding host and made me feel right at home. He even helped me out with my 1st senior moment of the night! I brought 2 color copies of the pictures for the picture round but forgot to make black and white copies for the teams. Richard very kindly made me some copies. My lovely wife Anne also came to be my assistant and did a great job keeping me on track.
The game got off to a great start and all teams were engaged and having fun. It was a 6 horse race right up to round 5. Round 5 brought out the gambler in 5 of the teams and they all doubled.........and missed! Counter Intelligence actually had the correct answer (UK) but crossed it out and put England, a heartbreaking zero for me to record. Had they kept UK they probably would have sealed 1st place. Round 6 saw 3 teams double and nail it which then turned it into a 3 horse race. Great Minds Drink Alike and Counter Intelligence were tied at 56 heading into round 7 with That's A Tasty Burger nipping at their heels with 47. In the end Great Minds Drink Alike pulled away with the win with 67 points with Counter Intelligence 2 points away with 65! Just shows how crucial those 2 points for turning in your pen can be. That's A Tasty Burger finished a strong 3rd and it was a very exciting finish. A shout out to Brewsual Suspects who only had 1 player who scored a very respectable 43. Mild Stallions fought very hard and doubled unsuccessfully 4 times but you gotta admire their fight.
My 2nd senior moment was forgetting to read the answers to Round 7, I went right to the results! Gonna have to work that one out.
I also debuted my Iron Man action figure (picture attached) as the 1st place trophy. Great Minds got to have their picture taken with him and got a real kick out of the fact he talks!
My sincere thanks to all for allowing me to host and for such a great game. Peace to you all........Quizmaster Greg
