About Collision Brewing Company
It was a packed house tonight at Collision, and in spite of some technical issues (read: quizmaster errors) we had quite the spirited, and close, game. Trivia Trumps Debates jumped out to the early lead, doubling successfully in Round 1 and notching the high score (7) in Round 2 to lead Trebek's Rejects by 7 and #momjeans by 8 after 2 rounds. We had two teams of newcomers tonight, and 4 Beers and a Bux were steady if unspectacular; they threw caution to the wind in Round 7 by trying a double because they were 7 points behind the 3rd place team and took a zero but still finished a respectable 5th. The top 3 were unchanged throughout most of the night until 1st-timers Insert Team Name Here converted a successful double-or-nothing in the Find The Connection round to catapult into 2nd place, just one point behind Trivia Trumps Debates. At the other end of the standings, Limoncello and Slingers were battling to stay out of the cellar; Limoncello nosed Slingers for 6th by a single point. At the top of the standings there was a battle for 1st place, and a battle for 3rd. Trebek's Rejects were in front of #momjeans by 3 after 5 rounds but acted on the old adage "go big or go home"; they went for the double (and the lead) in Round 6 and ended up taking a zero, eventually finishing 4th, 1 point behind #momjeans. Meanwhile newbies Insert Team Name Here had closed to within a point of the lead but both they and Trivia Trumps Debates each scored 8 & 7 in rounds 6 & 7; Trivia Trumps Debates held on to win by a point while Insert Team Name were left to ponder the 2 points they left on the table by not registering their team.
It was an SRO crowd tonight, let's do it again next week before we break for Thanksgiving!
