Five teams took part at Whispers On Havana this week, along with your substitute Quizmaster....and we ended up needing to go to the tiebreaker question to determine a winner! NOLA Bitznitz went for a double-or-nothing in Round 1 and took a zero; having learned their lesson, they did not attempt another double and were steady and strong throughout to claim 3rd place. Regulars Big Dogs could only muster 1 point in Round 2 and were within shouting distance all night but could not quite catch up to the top 3, finishing 4th; Gibby's Doesn't Want Me could not overcome the -1 they took in the Guess What round and came in 5th.
First-timers Boom!! were consistent all night and led all the way...until Budz Buds scored 10 out of 10 in the Handout Round (6) to draw level entering the final round; when those 2 teams scored 8 in the Round 7, they finished with 44 points each, making the tiebreaker necessary. Budz Buds' guess was within 159 of the correct answer (# of passes thrown by the New Orleans Saints in 2012; no, really!!); Boom! came within 81 to claim the bonus point and the win. Thanks to all who played, and to the regular Quizmaster for leaving everything in a "plug and play" mode for me. Cheers all!!
