MTM XII: The Halfway Point

Bobby: The halfway point has been reached and not without controversy, which will be discussed later in this update.

Spring Break audiences were slightly below average, but not alarmingly so with 18 teams at Blind Pig West and 16 at Amici. These figures were buoyed by a few visiting Atlanta teams and some 1st timers.

At Blind Pig – Very strong game by BBvBoE (8) ftw with 104. United (4) collect a sneaky 2nd with 90 and Earlliance (3) settle for 3rd with 86..

Phasers (4) – 74
FFA (1) – 63
JJ (7) 57
Denim (3) 54
Rash (4) 43
Kittens (3) 39

At Amici –

We ran with Clint’s 2nd ever game written and both have been pretty solid offerings as he seems to have a pretty good feel for how to cobble together a usable game. I mis-read #10 which led to me ultimately accepting 2 answers to the question, but the way it was written was correct, so that one was all on me.
#20 was initially thought to have been incorrect, but upon further review it was actually acceptable as read, meaning the result will remain. The question could have perhaps used a little more definition, but the way I read it and the way it was written were correct. It was one of our more difficult games in the last few weeks, but there’s nothing wrong with that from time to time… It IS tournament time and for every 100 point winner there should be a 75 mixed in … If you’d like to discuss or read the discussion on the question, check out the Triviaheads Page..

Earlliance (3) play well enough for bonus points – 71, followed by tournament outliers Pedophiles -71 who lose in OT, and United (5) with 67
