About Longmont Public House
Tonight was a great night, starting with the room being so full that the Quizmaster had to delay the start of the game in order for one of our regular teams to be seated! The 8 teams included two first-timers who played on a lark and stayed through the end of the game. Kids Under The Table, standing in the foyer while awaiting their table, missed on a double-or-nothing in Round 1 and started with zero while all other 7 teams were tightly bunched within 2 points. Brown Chicken, Brown Cow and Longmont Analytica each successfully doubled down in Round 2 to jump ahead of the pack; Kids Under The Table, Sass Club, #momjeans and Paging Rick Stoner all hit a double in Round 3 making for a tightly-bunched field (1st place was 29 pts., 7th place was 20). A score of -1 in the Guess Who round dropped Rick Stroner out of the running while the rest of the field stayed closely grouped, while successful doubles by The Kids, rown Chicken and #momjeans separated those 3 fro the pack. No fewer than 5 teams successfully doubles in the Handout (Not your average Karaoke" round (Freedom of 76 also got all ten but did not double down), leaving 5 teams within plausible range of winning entering the final round; a failed double attempt dropped Longmont Analytica out of the running.
Sass Club (with a constitutional scholar in their ranks) and Longmont Analytica each successfully doubled in Round 7, naming all 9 Supreme Court Justices. Brown Chicken, in position to win, got 8 of 9 but chose to double and finished, painfully, 4 points back in 3rd place. The Kids Under The Table, who started the night with a zero, came all the way back, and their 8 points in the final round was enough to edge Sass Club by a point for the win. It was arguably the best night ever at the LPH, and certainly the most competitive. Looking forward to doing it again next week!
