It was a full house at the Lion & Crown Public House on Thursday’s Quiz night with fourteen teams competing furiously for top prizes.  Two things about last night’s gathering:  1)  This Quizmaster has never seen so many Double-or-Nothing’s in one game, and 2)  I have never seen so many high scores before, either! 

This led to an interesting post-game discussion when one of the Blood, Bath & Beyond team mates walked up and asked me, “How many points are possible in a game?  Quizmaster Lou is sure that he was walking the path that previous King Trivia types have traipsed before, so if any other quizmasters or admin staff are reading this, let me know your take on the subject.  As for our little corner of the universe, we came up with 114.  This would be under the ideal conditions of getting every answer right, successfully Double-or-Nothing in every possible round and applying your two point bonus for team registration.  Of course, there are always variations.  Round Seven doesn’t always have ten questions and some quizmasters award/subtract points for ancillary merits/violations.  So the number could be slightly lower or higher depending on quiz specifics and local conditions.  Still, we think 114 is a good bar. 

That being said, Shredder Squad took First Place with a whopping 90 points!  Pickles on a Plate won second with 79 points and the Ninja Turtles kicked it with 76!  Hell!  The Bumble Bees came in fourth with 75 points and fifth place was 64 points by Blood, Bath & Beyond!  Even newbie team, The Shiblets, who clearly didn’t know what they were getting into (but had a ton ‘o fun just the same) successfully Doubled or Nothing in the last round!  Ahhh…  The fun.  The fun. 

QM Lou signing off for now!
