Encore Question of December 8th, 2001.
Played at The Frog & Firkin in North York Ontario.
Tonight I'm playing with Doug CRANKY, Marla ZIGGY, Bill MADDOG, and Dave COITIS. I'm in 2nd place and have a good score (over 20000) coming into the Encore round. I'm playing as LITBOX tonight when I have trouble with both boards the previous game and am trying to transfer names when the Playback game starts.
My game so far had gone like this: TuneUp....4500/5000...3rd/11...COITIS and ZIGGY win round with 5000. I didn't get a chance to answer the first question. OnBeat...11250/14000...2nd/11...I win this round...COITIS is in lead with 11500...seven right, one wrong, one not answered. JukeBox...16630/20000...2nd/11...MADDOG wins round and takes lead with 16053. COITIS board dies about three questions in. Triviaoke...22952/28000...2nd/9...CRANKY wins round.
So this would be the second week in a row the Encore question would be about Country music unless it was about Andy Williams. All of us risk 50% of our points. I bookmark Johnny Cash and Merle Haggard.
Encore Question:..."Southern Nights" was a big hit for this Rhinestone Cowboy.
Don't need my book for this as I know the song and the nickname of this artist. I say the answer before the answer screen comes back on.
Correct Answer:...5. Glen Campbell
NTN Extra Fact:...From 1967 to 1978 the Arkansas native had 21 hits make it to the Top 40.
I hold my postion in 2nd place and finish with 34428 points. There are no individual rankings displayed in our bar. I earn 3000+ points (as LITBOX) by meeting this week's standard which I missed seeing because of fiddling with my board. Our bar finishes 13th in North America with a 33310 average. Bill MADDOG wins.
Here's how the rest of the bar did: Player preEncore Final Rank MADDOG 23120 34680 81 LITBOX 22952 34428 87 COSMO 21972 32958 CRANKY 21960 32940 ZIGGY 21030 31545 METLCA 20377 30565 FRFINA 15125 x 10587 C FARF 12436 x 11192 KAREEM 6163 x 3081 actually left three questions earlier?
