About Collision Brewing Company
Not even a blizzard could keep tonight's game from taking place; the storm kept attendance from the record numbers of recent weeks, but a good turnout turned into a great game, complete with a tie for 1st!
Tequila Is Not A Patronus made a statement right out of the gate, converting a successful double-or-nothing to jump 6 points clear of the nearest competitors (#momjeans, who scored 6 of a possible 6 in Round 1). #momjeans were high scorers in the (Lady Gaga) Picture Round....with 3 of a possible 8; Patronus, 4-Way Stop and newcomers Meatloaf and Mim&Maple each got 2 right. Trebek's Rejects, #momjeans and Patronus each scored 5 of a possible 6 in the Theme Round; Tequila Is Not A Patronus had originally (erroneously) been given a score of 6 and self-reported a missed answer, a point which would have repercussions later. Mim&Maple were the only team to correctly answer for 6 points in the Guess Who round; the other 5 teams all figured it out at the 4-point clue. Tequila Is Not A Patronus again got them all right, scoring 10 of 10 in the Find The Connection round, while Meatloaf and Trebek's Rejects each scored 9. At this point Patronus were 8 points clear of #momjeans and 10 points in front of Trebek's Rejects and Meatloaf.....when out of nowhere, Mim&Maple converted a double in the (license plate motto) handout round to jump from last place into a 1-point lead over Patronus (4-Way Stop's failed double bid dropped them out of the running). In Round 7 both Meatloaf and Trebek's Rejects went all out, trying for doubles; sadly Meatloaf only got 8 right and Trebek's Rejects agonizingly got 9 of 10, each team netting a zero to end their night. Leaders Mim&Maple finished strong with 8 points in Round 7; incredibly, Tequila Is Not A Patronus scored 9 to finish in a flat-footed tie with Mim&Maple, necessitating the rarely-used tiebreaker. (At this point Tequila Is Not A Patronus jokingly asked if they could have back the point they had given back by self-reporting) Though neither team's guess was remotely close (to the number of pubs in which Bruce Masters has had a drink), first-timers Mim&Maple were closer and took the honors for the night, disappointing Patronus who had led wire-to-wire.
A great time was had by all, hopefully the weather will cooperate more next week. See you all then!
