The dates offered by WHALES (and I'm informed, Buzztime advertising) indicate that it'll be played on Wednesday. Not West Park Station's night to howl, IDJT, but it would be great if some significant fraction of your group could squeeze in an extra game.

I haven't been playing Six, but I'll see if I can drum up some local interest to get Minnesota represented.

and so they have...as best-1-of-2 after 2 weeks, B-52 stands in 6th and West Park Station 10th. In fact for all 32 locations, the best-1-of-2 rank is the same as the week 1 rank by itself, due to game 2 being so significantly lower than game 1. If game 2 stands at the end as being so significantly the hardest, then game 2 will be almost entirely irrelevant.

Congratulations to AKBAR and friends. We at B-52 thought our 55.5 site score would have kept us in the competition, but Stewart's Brewing Co done us down. Well played!

Our bar, Mad River, is having a private party tonight and won't let us play trivia. Buzztime wouldn't let us play elsewhere and transfer our score. So we'll have to forfeit this one.

Wow, that is huge unfortunate. I might imagine there being some similar situations around the country with this thing being run as deep into December as this (last year wrapped on September 21).

The real tournament will use your 47584 from 11/8 and keep you safely in the top 10 (you were 2nd on the 4 of 5 basis). But yes alas this boots Mad River from the bracket simulation. Good fortunes to you in the real final.

Let me ask this question of Commissioner Whales: if I knew in advance that my group would be locked out, whether by a Christmas party or equipment failure, natural disaster or arson, etc., could I PM you requesting that my group's site be changed for the purpose of the bracket competition? I would plead that it's the group and not the site which is of the greater importance.

I would say there is certainly precedent for that kind of flexibility. But I couldn't imagine that this SB BS pet side project of mine could ever rise to the level of interest of say a McCarthy or Sandbag or Mudee. A simulation can be simulated multiple ways simultaneously. I might write it up both ways for posterity.

I happen to find your brand of BS very interesting, and I know several Buzztime players who are not registered on New Scaratings but are following this thread as guests. I know that all the dark horses got bleached out early, and that all four of your semi-finalists are among the top six qualifiers in the Smartest Bar Tournament; and that the two top-ranked teams in that Tournament are squaring off in the finals of your bracket competition. Imperfect comparisons aside, what's not to like?

I've never had, and never will have, an individual score as high as that site score. But as a Countdown player I've had plenty of 15's followed by 12.2's.

Best wishes to both West Park Station and Arlington Crystal. As for the Buzztime trophy, my group is still in the hunt.

MERKIN, at Teasers, is ominously silent.

Never silent, just not on line.

Clipper, Czarge and I and some of the other buys will be there Wednesday.

Pregame handshakes to all.

Handshakes all around, indeed. Our scrappy little team at Stewart's managed to claw our way into tenth place. We're delighted just to be able to sit at the big kids' table for the finals. Best wishes to all!

I am shocked (SHOCKED!) to find that in the world of Buzztime, "Holiday Movies" means movies that are being released right now, which is technically a holiday season.

Congrats to the prizewinners!

I think it is interesting that the lists do not match up at all except for this year. Congrats to West Park Station for accomplishing the first sweep!
