About Longmont Public House
This week's game was a great one for two reasons; one, there was a full house which always makes for a fun atmosphere, and two, the lead jumped back and forth among several teams all night to make the competition exciting. In the end the night was almost won by a group of first-timers!
No fewer than 4 teams hit on a double-or-nothing bid in Round 1: Brown Chicken, Brown Cow, Kids Under The Table, Longmont Analytica, and MGBK. Brown Chicken and Analytica each got 6 out of 8 in the picture round to share a 1-point lead after two rounds, at which point the real fun began. Kids Under The Table and Spork each hit a successful double-or-nothing in Round 3, moving The Kids into 1st place by 5 in front of Analytica and 6 in front of Brown Chicken. Longmont Ananlytica, #momjeans and Spork all got 8 points in the Guess Who round to jump Analytica into 1st place, with Brown Chicken 3 points back and both Kids Under The Table and Spork 4 points behind.
*Two things worth mentioning here: MGBK correctly answered the 10-point clue in Round 4, and first timers Band Of Bezonians were at this point dead last, with 14 points through 4 rounds and a full 10 points behind the 6th-place team*
In Round 5 (Find The Connection), Band of Bezonians, Brown Chicken and MGBK each successfully doubled, moving Brown Chicken into 1st place by 2 points in front of MGBK, with Longmont Analytica 11 points back in 3rd. Brown Chicken's 9 out of 10 in Round 6 moved them a point further ahead of MGBK (60-57), while a 2nd consecutive successful double by the Bezonians moved them into 3rd with 54 points; a failed double try by Kids Under The Table dropped them out of the running.
Brown Chicken, Brown Cow scored 9 in the final round, leaving the door open for others; being unsure about one of the answers, they elected (wisely, as it turned out) not to double. Fully 5 teams out of 7 hit successful doubles in the final round: MGBK, Band of Bezonians, Spork, #momjeans and Kids Under The Table. The first two of those vaulted past Brown Chicken, who faltered late to finish third. All credit and congratulations to MGBK, who won the night with an excellent late push. But I must also point out first-timers Band Of Bezonians; trailing the field by a wide margin after 4 rounds and sitting on 14 points, they doubled successfully in each of the final 3 rounds, scoring 60 points and leaping into 2nd place (3 points behind the winners).
Thanks to all who played, and to the great staff at LPH, for an entertaining night. See you next week!
