Things began picking up last night after a slow start to 2022. Twenty-five players on seven teams were on hand for the game. At halftime, forty questions into the night, the trio of "Hamma Thyme" had the lead with 1500 points, aided by a stolen riot and a successful 200 point wager on the round's "Daily Double." The four man "Pray for Mojo," was in second place with 1350, augmented by a stolen riot. "Herding Cats," a duo again this week, was in third place with 1050, also having pocketed a stolen riot. With 850 points each, "The Independence Squares," a quartet this week with two new players, and "The Monkees," a sextet, shared fourth place. First timers, "The Swamp Crew," a team of five, checked in with 650. We had a solo artist, who called himself "A&K Unhinged," bail out at halftime.

The remaining six teams played another forty-two questions in the second half and when regulation play ended "Pray for Mojo" had racked up an impressive 4950 points. "Hamma Thyme" had slipped to second place with 3600. "The Independence Squares" rallied to third place with 3550, having stolen a riot. "Herding Cats" was in fourth place with 3250. "The Monkees" finished with 2750, supplemented by a successful 300 point wager on the "Daily Double." And "The Swamp Crew" closed out the round with 2450.
