Last night, we had our best night in almost two months as thirty players on seven teams were on hand. Twenty of the thirty folks were first timers and we sure hope they'll come back for more fun. At halftime, forty questions into the game, "Old People," a sextet, had the lead with 1500 points, supplemented by the half's only stolen riot. With 1050, the duo of "Childrarium" was in second place. "Dis & Terry," another team of six(with four first timers and two Trivia Riot veterans), had 900 points, despite losing 250 points on an unsuccessful wager on the "Daily Double." A new team, "Rob's Not Here," a trio, was tied for third with 900 points, as well. Newcomers, "The Misfit Toys," a quartet, was in fifth place with 600 points. "We Not Dem Boyz," a trio, was in sixth place with 400 and another new team, "5 Engineers and a Paralegal" had 300.

Unfortunately, two of the new squads bailed out at halftime, leaving five teams to battle it out. After another forty-two questions had been played, "Dis & Terry" had taken the lead with 4200 points, aided by the round's only stolen riot. "Childrarium" had held onto second place with 3450. "The Misfit Toys" had scratched and clawed its way to third place with 3000, followed by "Old People" with 2999, having lost 601 points on an unsuccessful "Daily Double" wager. "We Not Dem Boyz" finished regulation with 800 points.

We began the night with five teams made up of seventeen players, but a team of two bowed out fairly early(due to not feeling well), so at halftime, we were down to four squads. "Pray for Mojo," a quartet this week, was in first place with 1750 points, aided by a stolen riot. The trio of "Hamma Thyme" was in second with 1350, having successfully wagered 150 points on the "Daily Double." With 1250, the five-person "Herding Cats" was in third place. That left the trio of "Betty White Supremacists" in fourth place with 950.

The second half saw two more stolen riots and when regulation play was over, "Herding Cats" and "Pray for Mojo" were tied with 3650 points. "Hamma Thyme" had stayed close with 3150 and "Betty White Supremacists," which lost 1,000 points on an unsuccessful wager on the second "Daily Double," had 1450.

The category for the final question was "Beer."

All four teams answered the final question correctly. Both "Pray for Mojo" and "Herding Cats" wagered all of their points, so the score remained tied at 7300, so for the first time at 3 Trails Brewery, we had a tie-breaker question.

Tie Breaker Question: How many "Peanuts" comic strips did Charles Schulz draw in his career?

"Pray for Mojo" guessed 15,000 and "Herding Cats" guessed 18, 262. The correct answer is 17,897, so "Herding Cats" took first place and its cash prize of $41 and "Praf for Mojo" settled for second place and a cash prize of $27.
