About Collision Brewing Company
After last week's climactic (pun intended!) turnout, numbers were down this week due to Lent (yeah, right!) and an excellent game to boot. We had 7 registered teams at Collision this week. Mim & Maple (& friend) were high scorers out of the gate, scoring 6 of a possible 6 in the 1st round; Fantasia 2000 and Tequila Is Not A Patronus each scored 6 of 8 in the Picture Round to move into a 3-way tie for 1st with M&M. Fantasia 2000's 5 (of 6) was the high score in Round 3 as they moved into a 2 point lead but were promptly caught by Mim & Maple in the Guess Who round (M & M were the only team to answer correctly for 8 points); Limoncello & Tequila Is Not A Patronus each took a -1, damaging their chances. (Side note: Patronus guessed George W. Bush for 10 points; when the 8 point clue said the person had earned a "Masters in Philosophy", they cringed noticeably) In Round 5, Fantasia 2000 made their move, tallying 10 of a possible 10 to move 3 points clear of the field; #momjeans (a party of 2 this week after last week's blowout), Trebek's Rejects and Mutha Smucker all scored 9. Limoncello finished strong with 8,8, and 5 down the stretch but could not overcome the negative point in Round 4. #momjeans correctly answered all 10 questions for 10 points in the Handout Round...but were eclipsed by no fewer than 4 teams who successfully converted double-or-nothing bids: Fantasia 2000, Trebek's Rejects, Mutha Smucker and Tequila Is Not A Patronus. (Mim & Maple went for the double but only got 9 right, effectively eliminating them on the night) Fantasia 2000 entered the final round ahead by 8 and cruised home to the win with 8 points; Trebek's Rejects coasted home in 2nd place while Tequila Is Not A Patronus came all the way back (after their -1 in Round 4) to nose out Mutha Smucker for 3rd place by 2 points.
It was, as always, a fun night and I look forward to doing it again next week. The good weather is coming, soon we will be spilling onto the patio!
