Encore Question of January 31st, 1998.
Played at The Keg-Sheppard Centre in North York.
Tonight by the time of the Encore question, I am the only player in the game. I have an excellent 5000/5000 start in the TuneUp round. My friend Paul left at 10:30pm and two other players also quit or left after the game started. My score is 19782 until now. I decide to risk 50% and with this question, I feel very confident what the question will be.
Question:...Which is not a Top 10 for Huey Lewis and The News:
Well exactly the question I thought it would be. I click in and write down the question and choices.
Correct Answer:...4. I'll Be Your Shelter
(The answer also says that it was Taylor Dayne that had a hit with this song, I was thinking of the band Lone Justice [their son was simply 'Shelter'] before I saw the answer. Didn't matter, I knew the other songs by Huey Lewis).
I'm right and win with 29673 points. I'm sure I earn 2000+ Players Plus points. I finish 146th in North America. The bar is 2471st on the continent as I am the only player here. I am Number 1 on this bar's Hall Of Fame board for this game but this place is no pushover as 2nd is 28589.
9:00pm...Wipeout...9855/15000...2nd/6...PVJ wins...1000+ points...1481st in North America...bar is 1229th in North America...(If I'd have gotten here in time for the first three questions, I may have won this game too).
9:30pm...Wipeout...14075/15000...1st/5...1000+ points...13th on NTN Top 20...19th overall in NA...bar is 1286th.
10:00pm...Playback (see above).
11:00pm...RetroTV...12796/15000...1st/1...1000+ points...217th in NA...bar is 2530th.
The bar Maxwells (ie Maxwell's Mix) was the continent's best bar in the 9:00pm and 9:30pm games. That bar is about 2 blocks north of where I was. Players AUSPAT and DAVETV showed up in the individuals Top 20. MOLSON came over from across the street at The Frog & Firkin after the music trivia and said the F&F had fixed their linkage with the NTN network and that DAVETV and AUSPAT had already left Maxwell's. F&F had finished 17th of the top bars with a 27608 average for their best five scores. There are some smart people within a one mile radius. I was sick for the last few days so decided I'd get home early and not join the F&F crowd. I must have looked funny playing in a parka to block the blast of air conditioning from above.
There's a ROCKET at Mr. Mikes in Haverhill Massachusetts who often finishes in the top 20.
