Congratulations to all our participants and thanks for playing this season.
Don't forget that all stats reset next week with the start of Season 5 - so come on out and start building those wins!
Other teams can play along but scoring will prioritize the top 8 teams.
NEW - Mulligans
Maybe mulligan is not the right word, because these are less a 're-do' and more a "we're really not sure but want to make sure we get a point". Mulligan sounds way more fun than 'free pass'.
Each team will be granted a certain number of 'mulligans' that they can use for answers they do not know - perfect for answers where you have absolutely no idea. These cannot be doubled, but will get you a guaranteed point on normal answers where you'd otherwise be guessing or leaving a blank.
The number of mulligans is determined based each team's season score. The score of the 8th place team is subtracted from all teams. Then a scale factor is determined such that the top team gets 6 points (1/2 of a perfect season score of 12). The other teams' scores (8th subtracted) are multiplied by that same scale factor and rounded to the nearest whole number. This results in a distribution between 6 and 0, with allocation per relative ranking of teams.
This formula seemed to result in a reasonable balance between granting a slight advantage to the top performing teams without giving away too many free points that it makes the end result a given (the max number of 5 being determined so the top team could have one per round) This is the first time we're trying this; if it sways the game too much, we'll re-evaluate for next season. But we're going to try it.
We would prefer all teams competing in the championship to sit in a visible area - either at the bar itself or on the main floor area of the bar. For this week only, any of the top teams can have a table reserved for them. If you would like a table reserved for your team, please message me on Instagram or send me an email.
