About Collision Brewing Company
Wow, we had a GREAT turnout tonight at Collision on the Night After Christmas...and a great game too! The teams were tightly bunched after one round but #momjeans jumped out in front to stay with a successful double-or-nothing in Round 2 for 16 points, moving them 9 points clear of the pack (all other teams scored between 5 & 7). The Holiday Movie Haiku round 3 was excellent, and 8 of the 9 teams scored between 3 & 5 (of a possible 6 - more on team Grace later). Both Slingers and newcomers Team J got a little overanxious and took 1 -1 in the Guess Who round, dropping them out of contention for the night; Grace (featuring the Quizmaster's daughter) were the only team to correctly answer the 10 point clue - the Waldorf education paid off there! All teams but one scored between 7 & 9 of a possible 10 in the Find The Connection round, at which point #momjeans were still comfortably ahead, leading 4-Way Stop by 7 and Butterbeer Beaches (back after a long absence) by 8. In the handout round (#6) the Beaches nosed past 4-Way into 2nd place, outscoring them 7 to 5 (#momjeans were again high scorers with 8). Trebek's Rejects were steady throughout but could not quite catch 4-Way Stop for 3rd place; they finished 2 points off the podium after no fewer than 5 teams (including the top 4) converted successful doubles in Round 7. Newcomers The Baconators were in the middle of the pack all night but a failed double bid in Round 7 left them in 8th place, while 1st-timers The Pants Are Square scored 10 out of 10 to claim 6th. A note about Grace, the team containing the Quizmaster's family: their 1 (of a possible 10) in Round 3 left them in last place, but 10 points in Round 4 bumped them up to 6th. A failed double try in Round 5 dropped them back to last until a successful double in Round 7 shot them into a dizzying but respectable 5th place. In the end, 4-Way Stop took 3rd place, a single point behind Butterbeer Beaches (in their triumphant return). Everyone took a back set to winners #momjeans, who (again) cruised home to win by 9 points. Just a great night all around.
We're doing it again the night after New Years Day, with the hair of the dog etc. See you then!
