It was a fun time ... the waitress was very impressive on the dog questions, but then came the

"Pink Floyd (yeah) ..... The Wall (ahhhh)"
Wizard of Oz answer ... bummer.

Wish I had not left during tiles, I would have loved to play craps with everyone. VA had asked me earlier if I played the Dark side, sounds like it was the night for it.

Thanks Wizard for a great event.

Stickler.... The rule does not specify any yard line the ball must be kicked from, it only specifies where the ball is placed before the snap. Since field goal yardages are listed as to where they are actually kicked from, and not where the ball was snapped from, all answers stating a yardage are therefore wrong.

By the way... how many correct did Jeopardy Champ teddys get? Would my 4 have been in contention for a top 10 finish?



Yes, I could have phrased that one a lot better. I think Teddy got a 9.

Is Taiwan not a country or something?

Teddy would have beaten me, then; I got 7. I think the bug is "cicada" FWIW, in case anybody wants to fact-check it, rather than how you have it spelled in the answers. I should have had 8, but was trying to time myself similar to what you-all had to do and blanked on Rosalyn's name, despite owning all the C&H collections. Epic Fail. Also knew Mt. Mitchell (my inlaws' ashes are up there) but marked myself wrong for "Clingman Dome" which is part of that area. I also blew the tie-breaker, which wouldn't have been necessary anyway. GG to you all and thanks for posting the Q&A's, Wizard!

I had a fun night of debauchery with other forum members and it was good to meet Wizard, teddys, DJTeddyBear, RS, NewToCraps, miplet and VegasAces. I always suck at trivia but was amused when we started betting on whether or not the blond bartender would correctly answer various trivia questions, starting with "How many red stripes are on the USA flag?"

I had never attempted to learn how to play Pai Gow Tiles, so I wasn't about to get schooled at the table in Harrah's while my money was at stake. I stood over DJTeddyBear's shoulder and got a lot of information from him (i.e. I asked him a lot of questions.) I think it was about 9:50 when we flocked over to the craps table. I stood back and watched at first but after a round of watching everyone seven out by the third roll, I decided to buy in and play Don't Pass & Don't Come when it was DJTeddyBear's turn to shoot. He cheerfully forecasted that having a dark side player would turn things around. Henceforth, the point was almost always 6 or 8 and almost each shooter made the first point. Half of my Don't Come bets lost as well.

I understand that a logical time to have a forum meetup is during the annual Global Gaming Expo, but I think we should do this more than once a year! The blond bartender had fun with us and so did the Pai Gow dealers. One dealer exclaimed "Already?!" when the next dealer came to the table. She said it was the first time that time flew by like that. Even the pit boss enjoyed the comradery and said players at the PG table are usually angry.

I'll post more in depth when I'm home, in front of keyboard, and not on my iPhone. But yeah, a good time was had by all.

I believe the phrase I used was "What a dickweed move... You're going down, buddy!" I think we both broke about even on my roll, but I otherwise got my ass kicked.

Yeah, it's hard to get people to agree on a date. Personally, I find it hard to make more than two trips per year. My next trip is in SIX WEEKS, for the Cutting Edge show.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition.

Wasn't able to go this year but last year's meetup was fun. I think any event where a bunch of prop bettors get together makes for great entertainment.
They asked me how well I understood theoretical physics. I said I had a theoretical degree in physics. They said welcome aboard.
