About Collision Brewing Company
Tonight was a first, at least for me: every table was occupied, we had 30 players in the room (not counting the baby)! One couple said they were there to play, but left just before we started; another couple showed up in the middle of Round 3, took their table, joined in mid-game and gave a good accounting of themselves.
The teams were all fairly bunched through the first 2 rounds. In Round 3, perennial contenders Gold vs. Gold missed on a double to score 0 points, then took a -1 in the Guess Who round to seemingly drop out of contention. After 3 rounds #momjeans and Karonnie led with 19 points, 3 clear of Brown Chicken, Brown Cow; after 4 rounds the 2 were still tied but Brown Chicken had narrowed the gap to a single point while newcomers Satanic Surfers moved into 4th place, 4 points behind the leaders.
Round 5 was when the game hit its stride. Butterbeer Beaches scored 9 out of 10 while first-timers Rooster and Late Comers (who joined in Round 3) scored 8 & 7 respectively to boost their positions, while no fewer than 4 teams converted successful double-or-nothing bids to score 20 points: Gold vs. Gold, Karonnie, Satanic Surfers and Brown Chicken, Brown Cow. At that point the standings read:
Brown Chicken 42
Satanic Surfers 39
Gold vs. Gold and #momjeans 32
Butterbeer Beaches, Karonnie, and Rooster each scored 8 out of 10 in Round 6 but watched Brown Chicken, Brown Cow, Gold vs. Gold (both for the 2nd successive round) and #momjeans convert successful double bids to shift the standings yet again. Brown Chicken now led comfortably with 62 points, 10 more than both #momjeans and Gold vs. Gold with Karonnie 1 point back in 4th. No one felt confident enough to double in Round 7 and Brown Chicken, Brown Cow coasted home with 6 points to win by 9. #momjeans scored 7 in Round 7 to claim 2nd place, while both Gold vs. Gold and Karonnie scored 5, leaving Gold vs. Gold in 3rd place and Karonnie out of the money by a single point.
It was a fun, competitive night and I look forward to seeing many of you back next week!
