    A glorious New Year to everyone as we play our first game in 2018…  The Year of the Dog!  Any dogs out there?  I’m a dog.  Woof!  It’s up to all us dogs this year to make sure we show tolerance and empathy towards the people we meet to preserve our karmic balance, especially if we wish to avoid unnecessary conflicts.  But enough philosophizing!  Onto the recap! 

    !2 teams showed.  12 teams played.  Welcome to newcomers Longboard Surfers.  Welcome back to long absent Foot Clan, who decided to just drop in and take first place!  Stealth Texas snagged second and Blood, Bath & Beyond solidly took third. 

    It was a challenging set of quiz questions this week.  The Theme Round and Find-the-Connection Round engendered the most pain, although the Guess Who Round frustrated a lot of eager beavers who tried to cash in on the big points early on instead of waiting for the confirmation clues and settling for less points.  C’est la vie. 

    Gambling is the devil’s snare which catches the greedy as evidenced by the number of failed Double-or-Nothings that occurred.  Hmmm…  Maybe there’s something to be said for careful consideration and balanced judgment?  Quizmaster Lou thinks so.  Then again, where would we be without the drama of agonized victories and glorious defeats?  Until next week, I remain, loyally yours.
