Wow! And not just, "Like, wow.", but I mean really, "Wow!" In parsing the actual movement of
play at last night's King Trivia Pub Quiz, we had one of those evenings where the lead shifted
from team to team like the ball in a rugby match!

Beer Logic started off strong with a definitive first place out of eleven teams with Pickles on a
Plate second. Then Scott's Totts swiped the lead pushing Beer to second and Pickles to third.
Beer got first position back from them in round five with the IFFY!/Blood, Bath & Beyond Alliance
catapulting into third! Suddenly, IFFY!/BBB, leaps into first in round six with Bumble Bees
appearing out of nowhere into second place with a well timed Double-or-Nothing, while Beer fell
back to third! Then, Stealth Texas, true to their name, snuck up in round seven with their own
Double-or-Nothing and tied IFFY!/BBB for first place! Stealth won the tie breaker, IFFY!/BBB
ended up in second and the Bumble Bees took third... Quizmaster Lou felt so bad for Beer Logic
that he awarded them a fourth place prize anyway. The infamous Get-Out-of-Death card. (Don't

Whew! Excitement. Great questions from our quiz writers as well. The visual round money quiz
was especially inventive. Quizmaster Lou aced this one at home and found it perplexing that not
more teams Doubled-or-Nothing on it, but then again, we now live in an age where plastic has all
but replaced currency and let's face it, who's ever seen a $1000 dollar bill? (Actually, one
newbie team was scoring so badly, and missed all but one of the denomination questions that they
quit the game and left the pub after round two!) Excellent mash-up on round six, throwing in
science fiction books and authors, as well. That gave the geeks a chance to get in on the action
and they did. (Quizmaster Lou admits to being in this class, I aced this one as well, even
though I guessed three of them!) And to top it all off, the round seven Jacksons & Wilburys
shifted the dynamic 180 degrees, causing drama in the eleventh hour! All in all, a great quiz.

From Unknown: "Pain makes you stronger. Tears make you braver. Heartbreak makes you wiser.
And alcohol makes you forget all that cr*p!" Have a wonderful weekend everybody!
