I'm feeling cautiously optimistic about the future of this game after last night. We had eight teams and twenty-seven players on hand, and three of the teams and twelve players were first-timers. At halftime, "Tardy Boys," a trio this week(not all of whom were boys, by the way)had the lead with 710 points. Newcomers "Burt Reynold's Mustache," a squad of seven, was in second place with 530 points. "Hamma THyme," a trio, was in third place with 510. The quartet of "Trebek's Rejects" was in fourth place with 490. 450 points put "Wednesday Eve," a duo back for the second straight week, in fifth place with 450. "Nameless on Main," a trio again this week, checked in with 400, followed by a new duo called "Out on the Town" with 390 and another new trio "Team Julie" with 290.

After the second half had been played, "Tardy Boys" had extended its lead with 1990 points. "Hamma Thyme" had moved into second place with 1470. "Trebek's Rejects" had also made a move up the leader-board to third place with 1410. "Burt Reynold's Mustache," had slipped a bit to fourth place with 1350. "Nameless on Main," finished regulation play with 1320, good for fifth place. Right behind was "Out on the Town" with 1310, followed by "Wednesday Eve" with 1250 and "Team Julie" at 1030. As you can see, all eight teams broke the 1,000 point barrier and that does not always happen.

The category for the final question was "U.S. Cities."
What city...
-whose 2020 population was 504,258, making it the thirty-seventh largest in the U.S. and the third-most populous in its state
-which is the most populous U.S. city that is not a county seat
-which is the location of Organ Stop Pizza, home to the world's largest Wurlitzer theater organ
...was ranked America's "Most Conservative City" in 2017 by Pew Research Center? (Answer below)

None of the eight teams answered the final question correctly, so it came down to the wagers. "Tardy Boys" bet 951 to finish with 1041, good for first place and $62 in cash winnings. "Team Julie" made a smart bet of zero points to finish in second place with 1030, claiming $42 in cash. ("Wednesday Eve" saved 750 points for third place and "Nameless on Main" kept 640 points in reserve for fourth place.)

Thanks to everyone who played and we'll see you next Tuesday.

We had eighteen players on six teams for last night's debut of the "Blitz" format. At halftime, with 570 points, the trio of "Hamma Thyme" had the lead. 540 points put the duo of "Pray for Mojo in second place. Third place was held by "Wednesday Eve," another trio, with 410. Yet another trio, "Nameless on Main," was in fourth place with 390. Our returning friends, "Nickleback," playing for the first time in months, was in fifth place with 300 points. "Late Arrivals," a duo which joined midway through the half, checked in with 150.

The second round saw "Hamma Thyme" extend its lead to finish regulation play with 1410. "Pray for Mojo" remained in second place with 1080. "Wednesday Eve" finished the round with 910, followed by "Nameless on Main" with 870.

Only "Hamma Thyme" answered the final question correctly. With its wager of 751 points, "Hamma Thyme" finishe din first place with 2161 and claimed $54 in cash. "Pray for Mojo" wagered 741 points to finish with 339, good for second place and $36.(Once again, if any of the teams near the bottom of the scoreboard had bet zero points, it would have finished in the money.)

Thanks to all who played and I'll see you next Tuesday.
