    Bobs.  We get Bobs.  A fascinating and most informative Round Three on “Bob’s Your Uncle”.  Difficult and rewarding for its choice of Roberts.  Only one team knew who Robert Fitzsimmons was.  Well done, King!  And the hue and cry for simpler Bobs went up.  How come they didn’t ask me who Bob Barker was?!?  Hilarious!  I guess bobbing for Bobs isn’t as easy as it looks. 

    Welcome to new teams 2 Girls 1 Cup, Nitro Panther and Fred & Barney.  Welcome back to Rockafellas and Guess-a-Lot.  Congratulations to the Hilltoppers who came with more of their clan and grabbed first prize.  Stealth Texas assimilated the second place award and Ship It! took third. 

    Quizmaster Lou’s Tips

     It’s interesting to watch how the various trivia teams react to the question sets they are given during game play.  A leading team’s morale can go from ebullient to crestfallen (or vice-versa) at the announcement of the next question set’s subject matter.  The crowd at the Lion & Crown in Allen was no exception when Round Seven’s focus centered on the 2018 Oscar  nominees for best original and best adapted screenplay.  The 2018 Academy Awards ceremony was the least watched in the award’s history.  The L&C’s teams were mostly clueless, commensurately.  Pens dropped.  Walk outs.  But this should get players thinking in a strategic mode.  Pay attention to the list of Question Sets announced at the beginning of the game and prepare how to play your best guesses and Double-or-Nothing’s accordingly based your knowledge of the categories given.  Quizmaster Lou has spoken…

    Have a safe week, everyone!
