This was a fairly tight game, with 7 points separating 1st from 4th. Round 4 was particularly brutal, as half of the field guessed wrong, while the best the rest could muster was one 6-pointer. Hashtag Team jumped out to at least a share of the lead for the first 4 rounds, then held on by no more than 6 points the rest of the way. Ultimately the better race was for 2nd place, as So On the Spot, Raise Your Hand if Your Pretty, and The Kid's Table were neck and neck for the entire game, with other teams coming in and out of the picture. Unfortunately, round 6 knocked The Kid's back, while Spot and Pretty raced to a tie for 2nd. On the tie-breaker, their answers to the length of the Great Wall of China were close. . .to each other. . . but no where near correct. However, Pretty was the closer answer, grabbing 2nd place. Hashtag team proved a tenacious defender, and fended off all comers. Plus they were having a great little party in the corner of the bar. A good time for sure. Well done Hashtag!

Great game tonight! This crowd is daring and unafraid. The number of teams going double or nothing was staggering, regardless of how many were unsuccessful. The amazing thing was how many succeeded. My first time at this venue, so maybe this is normal. Fun to watch!

For most of the game this was a four-horse race.Tequila Mockingbirds, There's Always Next Week, The Kid's Table, and The Oxymorons, ran neck and neck trough the first five rounds. In fact, after round five, we had a tie for 1st and a tie for 3rd. In round 6 Tequila was the only team in the place to successfully double, giving them the largest margin of the night, albeit by less than 10. Round 7 proved to be the decisive round as TANW and Kids successfully doubled. This knocked Oxy out of the running and pushed TANW past Tequila, into 1st place. Two points separated 1st and 3rd. A nail-biter to the end.

An awesome game to call. Well done Pineapple Hill gang!

Pineapple Hill Saloon was the room where it happened on the eve of July 4th, and just like their country, these competitors were young, scrappy, and hungry. Eight KT regulars duked it out with two newbies in a bloody battle of American wits so fiercely patriotic, you could easily have mistaken the Hill for Mt. Vernon.

There's Always Next Week and The Kids Table remained neck in neck as early as Round Three, trailed none-too-far behind by the plucky Tequila Mockingbirds, but it wasn't until Round Six that a few daring double downs by newcomers Miss Vanjee Miss Vanjee Miss Vanjee sent their rockets blaring straight into third place. Unfortunately, that bomb was burst before it ever reached the air as they bowed out of the competition for the last round.

For the drinking round, competitors were tasked with submitting an American themed pun or joke. Highlights included:

'3 Beers for the Red, White, and Blue!'

'Give me liberty, or give me meth.'

And the landslide victor Raise Your Hand If You're Pretty with 'Are you an American citizen, cause I'm wondering if you're free tomorrow night? ;)'

Complete with wink face.

Our final round brought our competition to a star spangled finish, as There's Always Next Week let their flag knowledge flag fly, successfully edging ahead with the seven point lead that would be instrumental in their victory.

Well done, kids.
