Here they are, folks! FInal scores to this year’s JGTAI. Teams in Yellow made the first team, and will get an invite and have a chance at a bonus prize. Teams in orange made the cut and will receive an invite. The two teams in red earned an automatic invite a few weeks ago. Teams in light purple are on the bubble…if teams ahead of them decline an invite, they could still get one.

The event will be next Sunday at the City Tap House at 5:30. More details are coming soon. If you have not made the cut, there is still hope. This is wild card week, and teams that win this week earn an automatic invite.

Invites will be sent out on Tuesday…if you made the cut, and are on one of the following teams, please shoot me your email so I can get you your invite (you can contact me at johnny at johnnygoodtimes.com):

Quizzo at North Star Starting Early Tonight; Sidecar Off for Tonight

Apparently there’s an American football game tonight that involves a team of local youngsters that the denizens of this fine town are just wild over, so we’re going to have to make some concessions. North Star starts at 6:30 tonight, so we can wrap up in time for kickoff. There will be no quiz at Sidecar tonight. We’ll get back in business there next week.

Also, a heads up: the Comcast quiz will be tomorrow at the Market at Comcast Center at 5:30 p.m. GREAT opportunity to earn JGTAI points if you’re so inclined. And it’s BYO, they’ll supply the ice. So bring a bottle of wine or beer and play some quizzo. Plus everyone who plays gets a free $5 to spend at the shops there. It’s a great deal and a fun quiz.

Ping Pong Robots, Quizzo Tonight

Ok, so maybe there won’t be Ping Pong Robots at quizzo, per se, but the video above is pretty freaking amazing. Earlier this week, I had the question: Former #1 ranked player Tim Bollo nearly lost to a robot in what Olympic sport earlier this year? The answer was table tennis, and here is some video of that match. Prepare to have your mind blown.

As for quizzo tonight, we start at Industry at 6:30. Perhaps the funnest quiz of the week, with the added bonuses of French Fry Faceoff and Name that Tune. REcently voted the 3rd best bar in Foobooz, the food and drink is terrific.

On to the Bards at 9:15 p.m. It’s rockin’ every week. Get there early to assure yourself a table. See ya tonight.

JGTAI Scores Posted

autumninvite

Here ya go, our scores through today. With a mere two weeks remaining in the regular season, the intensity level is heating up. Two teams got automatic invites, and 15 others will make the cut. But there are 3 teams tied for 15th place, another two teams one point back, and three more teams 3-points back. Further down, there are a few regular teams who are primed to make a last minute surge, such as Popesack, Sidecardigans, and Hooter and Chuff. And the points are going to start changing rapidly. There is a new BONUS opportunity on the Facebook page that can earn your team points in a hurry. This week, you can earn double points at Industry on Thursday night. Next week, I’ll offer double points at the quiz at Comcast Market (on Tuesday, November 11th at 5:30 p.m.) Get your A-team ready, it’s game time.
