Encore Question of December 18, 1999.
Played at The Frog & Firkin in North York.
Tonight I've got two boards going as besides ROCKET, Mike has left to play pool and so I've taken over his DBA board (This is a different Mike then the guy who plays FERREL). There's a very small crowd playing tonight, the week before Christmas. There's no way I'll be here on Christmas or New Year's Day.
My game so far had gone like this: TuneUp...ROCKET...3000/5000...I'm 'splitting' unsure answers and DBA hits about everything. DBA...4500/5000. OnBeat...ROCKET...7250/14000...2nd/8...DBA wins round. DBA...9000/14000...1st/8. JukeBox...ROCKET...12346/20000...ROCKET wins round. DBA...14090/20000. Triviaoke...ROCKET...18311/28000...ROCKET wins round. DBA...19574/28000.
I hold the two leading boards but the whole bar is not having a good night. Might as well put 50% on the Encore question. I know a enough about Genesis, Yes, and Emerson Lake and Palmer. "Open your book to Gentle Giant" was a suggestion I agreed with.
Question:..."Giles, Giles, Fripp" was the original incarnation of this 1970s rock band:
I found this pretty quickly in my book either on the first or second flipping I did as I knew it was 3 or 5 and had enough time to tell the others.
Correct Answer:...3. King Crimson
I'm right and finish with 27467 as ROCKET. I earn 3000+ Players Plus points for meeting this week's 16000 point standard. I'm 500 something on the individual rankings. The bar is 437th (but later on the NTN.com site, I see we were given 32nd with a 23120 average) in North America.
Here's how the rest of the bar did: Player preEncore Final Rank DBA 19574 29361 4xx 20th on Top 20 Network board. ROCKET 18311 27467 5xx MADDOG 14635 21953 2427 BERGIE 13154 19731 3193 MOLSON 11393 17089 4104 VIKING 9918 14877 4867 KELLY 9660 14490 5001 LEAFAN 3304 4956 8290 JTC ? 1959 2155 9256
A look at the NTN.com site showed DBA was ranked 99th on their top 100 Playback rankings. A bar in West Covina California had the top 40 players in this game so that knocked the rankings down a lot. I went up to the poolroom to tell Mike DBA he was top 20 on the Network without even playing and wished him and his friends a Merry Christmas.
8:00pm...Countdown...4560/15000...8th/9...500+ points...I'm 6173rd in North America...bar is 403rd...STUNED wins...I'm here in time for the last eight questions after I find someone is on my frequency at the start.
8:30pm...Countdown...7035/15000...4th/9...2000+ points...I'm 2435th in NA...bar is 414th...I can't remember now who won. I have more frequency board problems.
9:00pm...Wipeout...8446/15000...1st/10...1000+ points...I'm 3072nd in NA...bar is 1045th.
9:30pm...SunSports Countdown...8504/15000...1st/11...1000+ points...I'm 64th in SOnt...bar is 10th in Southern Ontario with a 7348 average.
