Group W back on top at Frank's

The dynamic duo known as Group W won at Frank's for the 9th time in 13 attempts this week, defeating two-time champs Lil' Roy Screams Again 150-136 and topping 9 other teams in a heavy turnout, high-energy game. As always my attempt to photograph them went awry, and although I snapped a shot of the pair enjoying their winnings at a booth, when I developed the negative I ended up with what appears to be a promo photo of America's most favorite '70s mime couple, Shields & Yarnell.

I Don't Know! had a miserable 39, and then screwed up further by leaving before I announced winners, depriving themselves of the Last Place Prize. This was then awarded to the one-man force known as
Alex, I'd Like to Buy a Vowel for $200, who went home with a copy of Quarto. This was the second week in a row that the Frank's Last Place Prize was a game beginning with "QU-." Here we see Alex... displaying his Tiger Style Quizzo Sucking technique. Grrrr. In the other extreme, third-place Prufrock played largely on his own and scored a 110.

Scores follow:

Beautiful Gold:
Group W 150
So-So Silver: Lil Roy Screams Again 136
Shameful, Shameful Bronze: Prufrock 110
