Far from ashamed of my 11.7 on this quiz, may I point out that DAR ran it, point for point, and collected a perfecto? She identified the year Banff was created a national park (1887), the target of the Treaty of Neuilly (Bulgaria), and a bunch of other stuff which reduced me to a thoughtful 878, or worse. I hope XTRAIN passes on my congratulations to the seasonable witch.

Unexpected, strange, and thrilling.

That's impressive. I was visiting Houston once when that happened. I am happy to note that I did make one contribution to an old music question.

It didn't register when I saw the Final Leaderboard. RHINO, a long time contributor to these pages, finished 2nd with a 14.9. Since I have so few first hand acquaintances in the Buzztime community, it was especially thrilling to see that two of them finished 1-2 in what is often my favorite quiz. Good job, Dave!

Perhaps owing to the competitive excitement of two Showdown tournaments being held simulataneously, the scores in this companion quiz have been strikingly high. In the last session (Nov 15), I had a 12.1. I've won a few BrainBusters with a score like that. This week I finished 198th. Yikes!

I'm carrying an average in the mid-13's in Brainbuster, but I shall always remember DAR as the first Buzztime player who genuinely blew my mind. Damn, she is magnificent.
