Encore Question of July 18, 1998
Played at Frog & Firkin in North York.
Tonight I'm in 3rd place with 15598 points. I haven't won a round in this game. FLAVOR had the lead with 18423 points. I put 50% on the line and heard him say just before the question appeared he hadn't risk enough because of a glitch in his board so his friend ENIGMA in 2nd may just pass him. There were eight players in the bar.
Question:...Fred Wesley, Maceo Parker and Bootsy Collins all got their start with his band.
I didn't know this and found I spent most of my time writing their names down in the 30 seconds of time I had. I only had heard of Bootsy Collins because of him in the band 'Parliament Funkadelic' but didn't have any time to think of the ultimate influence in flamboyance of these five choices. Bill MADDOG thought it was Miles Davis or Ray Charles. I put in '1'.
Correct Answer:.....3. James Brown
I'm wrong and fall to 7th of 8 in the bar. Actually there were only two people right but many bet low so they didn't lose much. FLAVOR wins with 22108 as he was right and had risk 20% but that was enough to hang on from the other right person. I finish with 7799 points and that is 3627th in North America. The bar is 1076 on the continent. I earn only 1500 Players Plus points as the bonus was a rather modest 12000 point standard.
9:00pm...Wipeout...4720/15000...2nd/4...4898th in North America...bar is 2118th in NA...500+ Players Plus points...TAXMAN wins...getting here before the 7th question would have helped my score.

11:30pm...Countdown...10103/15000...2nd/6...1183rd in NA...bar is 520th in NA...1000+ points...FLAVOR wins.
