Trivial Progress

So, inspired by my foray earlier this week and foiled by the Crofton Bowling Centre's decision to have a tournament today, I headed off for a semi-birthday-related outing with Ben, Martin, Paul and Rachel to Jasper's Crofton to play some more trivia.

In a blatant display of narcissism, I'm going to start (continue) to take pictures of my high scores and post them. As you can see, I had a pretty decent Countdown (#1 at Jaspers for January and #14 nationally for that game) and a #4 Wipeout. (Paul and Rachel got #3 locally on a later Countdown but tragically did not take a picture of the moment.)

NTN 2007

It's been a year since my last NTN update. At the time, I was #17 on Santa Fe Cafe's list of Players Plus Points. (Basically, most frequent players.) Well, Santa Fe dropped trivia, so I switched my home location to Joe Senser's Bloomington. I don't really have any location in Maryland I go to frequently, so this seemed as good as any other.

I'm #13 on their list, but with half as many points as #12 and half again as many as #14, I probably won't be moving soon -- no matter how (in)frequently I play.

Tonight I was at my "home" location and did fairly well at "Showdown" -- around #200 nationally, and the best scoring Joe Senser's has seen in the past 12 months...

Games People Play

I've updated (and renamed) my gaming page, partially motivated by a post Martin had about a new BoardGameGeek widget that lists your most recently played games. Looking at the page now, there's a mix of what I played last Friday & Saturday with friends (which explains the overlap with Martin's list), games I've played online and games my nephew roped me into playing at Thanksgiving. I'm missing some games on the list, but that's OK.
