Double or Nothing!  Blessing or Curse?  That may have been the philosophical question that plagued players on Thursday night’s King Trivia Pub Quiz game at the Lion & Crown Pub.  The race for first place was between usual champs the Ninja Turtles and ascending stars Pickles on a Plate, with the Turtles gaining the lead in Round Two with the aforementioned Double or Nothing ploy.  Following suit, Pickles Doubled or Nothing their way past the Turtles in Round Five and maintained it to grab First Place!  Ninja Turtles got Second and Stealth Texas snuck in a double or nothing in Round Six netting Third Place!  

IFFY!, not ones to sit idly by while scoring is going on, double or nothinged their way to last place, with enthusiasm and aplomb.  So too, Beer Logic and Ship It!.  I guess the maxim is, there’s no shame in having the lowest score since there ain’t no fourth place prize! 

Special mention to Finding Theon for best improved score and a hearty welcome to R.O.U. S. (if you’re a fan of Princess Bride, you what I’m talking about) for a spirited and well played game.  All righty, then!  Until next week, I remain…  Humbly yours…  Quizmaster Lou.
