NTN Encore Question of April 22nd, 2006.
Played at the Joe Mercury's in Toronto Ontario.
Tonight I'm playing with two boards as ROCKET and LITBOX with Rob COSMO, Sean METLCA, and Phil PLBAAB.
My game so far had gone like this: TuneUp...ROCKET...5000/5000...1st/12...my two boards win round. ..........LITBOX...5000/5000...1st/12. No guessing this week; If I didn't know it right off, I could eliminate the wrong answer. OnBeat...ROCKET...13000/14000...1st/12...my two boards and COSMO and PLBAAB co-win round. ..........LITBOX...13000/14000...1st/12. 8 right and 1 wrong was great and better than what I deserved because I got help on three answers and guessed one. JukeBox...ROCKET...17809/20000...2nd/12...PLBAAB wins round. ...........LITBOX...17834/20000...1st/12. Triviaoke...ROCKET...24414/28000...2nd/11...PINA wins round. .........LITBOX...24442/28000...1st/11. I didn't take any -250s this round. I switched once to avoid a -250 and the guys stopped me from switching to the wrong answer twice.
Now the Encore answers come up. Ok, they're all Rolling Stones songs but what will it be? Rob is thinking matching songs with albums which wouldn't be my strength.
Encore Question:...In 1985 which Stones song did Mick Jagger and Tina Tiurner perform at Live Aid?
I should know this because I bought the 1985 Live Aid concert DVDs within the last year but I've so far only played the first two out of four discs and haven't got to their appearance yet. I know I've read the complete play list in the booklet and noticed it wasn't The Rolling Stones playing as a band at the show. [Keith Richards and Ron Wood appeared with Bob Dylan]. Well '5' sounds the best (Phil's mentioned it right away) and I think I've heard it before maybe from remembering the original performance or playing my home taping of the concert in the last five years. They ask me what I'm going with and I tell them but they have their doubts and split off. Well, that will be the second week in a row that the Live Aid concert has helped me. I finally had played through the second disc two weeks ago and heard the Simple Minds set so doubted Rob's Encore answer last week and changed my answer in time.
Correct Answer:....5. It's Only Rock 'N Roll
[NTN Extra Fact:...They also performed 'State Of Shock'.]
I'm right and win as LITBOX. I finish 3rd in North America with 36663. The bar is 4th in North America with a 32260 average. I earn 3000+ points for making this week's standard which I didn't notice. I place 3rd on the bar's Hall of Fame. [ntn.com keeps us in 4th place out of 1894 bars].
Here's how the rest of the bar did: Player preEncore Final Rank ntn.com rank LITBOX 24442 36663 3 9 ROCKET 24414 36621 4 10 METLCA 23746 x 11873 6230 1039 COSMO 23329 x 11665 6296 1080 PLBAAB 22163 33244 12 28 PINA 18537 27955 1125 113 TCB 17881 26821 1485 145 HEVY D 14343 x 7172 7723 2573 PUHACZ 12767 x 6384 7973 3086 SLEDOG 11479 17218 4534 603 CHAVEZ 11337 x 5669 8200 3584 [ntn.com listed 8135 players]
Other games:...I'm visiting so don't know what my P+ points are.
7:30pm...Countdown...ROCKET...4403/15000...4th/7...?+ points...I'm 5326th in NA...the bar is 13th in North America with a 9724 average... SLEDOG wins...I'm here in time for nine questions.
8:00pm...RaceDay predictions...I've never played this before but we have to guess placements of the NASCAR race that would be run later in the night. I know nothing about stock car racing and wouldn't be around late enough to find the results. I immediately forgot who I'd voted for.
8:30pm...RaceDay Countdown...ROCKET...734/1500...4th/11...1000+ points...I'm 664th in NA...bar is 687th.
.........LITBOX...731/1500...5th/11...1000+ points...I'm 670th in NA...SLEDOG wins.
I just wait for the third clue on each answer except when Phil can say that the Busch brothers got in trouble for drunk driving or crashing their cars when racing. We think that TCB rigged this game to play in our absence last week. He's running a perfect game through the first round. He's enjoying watching Montreal Canadiens on television win their playoff hockey team while the car race is on an unwatched monitor the other side of the bar.
10:00pm...Retro TV Countdown...ROCKET...14014/15000...2nd/11...1000+ points...I'm 41st...SLEDOG wins.
.............LITBOX...13994/15000...3rd/11...1000+ points...I'm 42nd...bar is 9th in NA with a 13968 average.
lots of help this game.
