About Collision Brewing Company
A good time was had by all tonight at Collision, and it was a very competitive game too; with 5 teams of "regulars", we dispensed with explanations and got straight to playing.
Trivia Trumps Debates and #momjeans each hit a successful double-or-nothing out of the gate, and the Moms nosed in front by a point after Round 2 19-18, with Trebek's Rejects 5 points off the lead in 3rd. Those 3 teams remained in those positions after 3 rounds, with Jeffrey Dahmer's House Of Ribs & Limoncello lurking in 4th, 7 points behind the leaders. In Round 4, the race began to take shape as both Limoncello and #momjeans took a -1 to fall out of contention while Trebek's Rejects took their first lead of the night by correctly answering the 10-point clue; Trivia Trumps Debates' 4-point answer landed them in 2nd, 4 point back while House of Ribs scored 8 (!) to claim 3rd, a further 4 points back. #momjeans bounced back with consecutive scores of 9 in rounds 5 & 6 to climb within a point of 3rd place after 6 rounds; Trivia Trumps Debate and House Of Ribs each scored 8 in Round 5 (and Ribs scored a 9 in Round 6) but Trivia Trumps Debate scored a successful double in Round 6; the 20 points catapulted them into 1st place. Limoncello, game to the end, adopted the "we're in last, let's double" strategy, doubling in each of the final 2 rounds....and scoring a zero in each case. They got 2 right in Round 7 but had doubled to take a zero; Trebek's Rejects did not double but, improbably, also scored a zero (to be fair, 3 was the HIGH SCORE in this round). #momjeans scored 2, falling just short of House Of Ribs (3), who took 3rd place while the Rejects finished 2nd. Hats off to Trivia Trumps Debates for a strong performance and a win on the night, finishing 8 points clear of the pack. Let's do it again next week...there will be cake for Adrian's birthday!
