Another really solid turnout this week as we had nine teams competing. Each round was really neck and neck with the Email Extra coming in handy for our winners in Round 1. Our big winners of the night, Not Alderaan (who week and week out have fantastic Star Wars related team names), won both rounds 1 AND 3 this week. Round 2 was taken, just barely, by the always competitive RIP GOP (their team name changes week to week). All in all it was a great night. The Boggle game was greatly appreciated by our friends of the Drake Alums. Looking forward to seeing everyone back next week for another great show!

Hello all you fine folks! For those of you who weren’t there you missed a pretty great night of Mind Games Live at the Old Chicago in Roseville. We had seven very competitive teams going back and forth throughout the evening. The first round prize of a $20 Gift Card to Old Chicago went to Deadpool 2016 after they beat Late to the Party in a tie breaker question. Our second round prize of a GC for a free pizza went to Late to the Party, one of our week in and week out power house teams at OC. The final prize, a $25 GC to Old Chicago, went to The ‘Bou for their round three dominance. Each round was pretty close having at least three teams all within two points of first. Thanks for playing and we’ll see you next week!
The last couple weeks at Old Chicago in Plymouth have been delightfully busy & competitive for Mind Games Live! Shout out to these teams who came out last night: Brooks, Excelsior, F4, Generic Team Name Here, Kirsty, Kit & Co., Me gustan las tortugas, Pink, Pooper Scoopers, Rascals, Road Rash, Shiny, & The Guild
Special thanks to Rascals for adopting my brother into their team!
Pictured below are F4, The Guild, and a very blurry Rascals group (featuring my extra-blurry brother).
It was a night of gambling on what the competitors would answer. Some people hated it. Most people hated it. The following teams gave it a shot: Hot Pursuit!, Beer Makes Smart, The Guild, Snuggly Ducklings, Pi, Road Rash, The Komeback Kaylas, Rascals, and Lluvia Morada.
Pictured below are Road Rash, Pi, and Lluvia Morada.
Sorry for my absence, dear MGL friends. There have been some wonderful winners the last 3 weeks, but unfortunately today you will only see tonight’s.
We had a whole bunch of teams playing tonight; unfortunately I have failed myself and failed to capture them all for you. Here are the winners, though!
Pictured below are Average Joes, El Gremio, and Cookies.
U-S-A! U-S-A! The US Women’s National Team is going to the World Cup finals, and America turns many years old!
After the USWNT beat Germany, we played a little round of trivia. Props to these guys for playing: Average Joes, BZEE, Star Spangled Monkey, Rascals, Soggy Waffles, Ropa!, The Guild, Inconsistently Constant, SS, and Snuggly Ducklings.
Pictured below are Monkey & The Guild:
It was another perfect night, weather-wise, in the Minneapolis area. As a result, the competition at OC was slim with only 6 teams: Road Rash, Rascals, Drinks on the House, Manbearpig, and Salsa de Carne.
Pictured below are The Guild & Salsa de Carne!
Tonight was an exciting night, with Lebron getting beat and all, which is probably why we just had a small group of teams playing. Thanks to Ballena Asesina, Dino Park, Heart Attack of the Clones, Rascals, Road Rash, The Guild, and We’re Bringing Monkey Back for playing!
Round 1 was Rule of Thumb, which saw a 3-way tie between Ballena Asesina, Heart Attack of the Clones, and The Guild after they each played perfect rounds and their e-mail extras. Ballena came away with the W – lots of people overestimate just how icy Greenland is!
Round 2 was Go Mental, which Rascals totally owned.
Round 3 was Word Winder, and Ballena was the only team to play a perfect round – very impressive!
Ballena Asesina took away the W overall!
Also, these losers felt sad that they hadn’t been on the blog in a while, so enjoy this adorable picture of Road Rash! They aren’t losers in spirit or in real life, only in tonight’s Mind Games Live game.
It was a beautiful night in the air conditioned room of OC. Thanks to everyone for your patience with my technical difficulties; fortunately there weren’t any visual rounds tonight! Teams out tonight were The Guild, Shave Those Sideburns, Werewolf Bar Mitzvah, Team Ham, The Krig Pen!, Onion Rings, Cinq, Rascals, and Road Rash
Pictured below are our winners, The Krig Pen!, The Guild, and Rascals.
Tuesday I was over the moon, still coming down from a high after seeing PRINCE in person with my own two eyes. Unfortunately, I only had 9 teams to share that joy with. Summer is here in Minnesota, though, and I totally understand that you don’t want to hang out in a bar on one of the few nights when the weather is perfect.
Thanks to 50 Shades of Gray Goose, Más Cencerro, Psyched, Rascals, Road Rash, Shuck It Trebek, Snuggly Ducklings, Stratton Oakmont, and The Guild for coming out!
Due to technical difficulties, the beautiful faces of these winners will not be shared this week.
