Results from HQ September 2017

Are you sitting comfortably?
Prepare for nailbiting stuff ... for anxiety attacks and brown paper bags .. for excruciating tension and palpitations as I waffle on and extend your purgatory.
Okay, sadism over and onto the results. And boy was it close!

Who won in September?

The Challenge
The USA fielded 14 crack troopers, snatched 7140 points = 52.7% of the spoils of war.
The UK & Co fielded 10 superhuman patriots, grabbed 6414 pts = 47.3%
The USA army won the Challenge battle.

But was this lead enough to guarantee another conquest? My American buddies have done it before , month after month .....

The Survivor
The USA fielded 8 magnificent troops and bagged 1749 pts = 48.2%
The UK & Co fielded 11 heroes and heroines and won 1880 pts = 51.8%
The UK & Co won the Survivor battle.

Man (and woman) the barricades USA, the UK are coming!
One battle each .... both close results.
I'm rattling my abacus like a Dervish here! Isn't it exciting!
I've taken out both the Star & Stripes and the Union Jack and ironed both, ready for hoisting proudly up the mast .. but there can only be one victor in this ferociously fought eternal war.

Two battles.
One win each.
But .. overall
The USA = 50.45%
The UK & Co = 49.55%

The USA won, by a measly 0.9%, the September War.
That is close! Hasn't been that close for months. They're coming my American friends! Whilst I fold away the Union Jack and proudly honour our USA quizzers victory and hoist their flag I can feel a tingling between my fishy shoulder blades ... the UK are watching, waiting in the trenches and intend to storm to glory.
I'm a pacifist pengy ... I know these things.

Everyone, pile back into the new monthly fray. All leave is cancelled.

Greetings humans ... it's your garrulous pengy referee once again.

The monthly war is getting close .... two fabulous armies battling it out with neither side willing to surrender.

So how went August?
The Challenge
The USA sent in 15 crack troopers, snatched 7940 points = 51.9% of the spoils of war.
The UK & Co fielded 10 human dynamos , bagged 7365 pts = 48.1% of the goodies.
The USA won the August Challenge battle! But it was close. Closer than last month ... the UK & Co are ferociously fighting back!
Do my American buddies have enough of a lead?

The Survivor
The USA won 1968 pts = 50.05%
The UK & Co won 1964 pts = 49.95%
Wow! This required a hi-tech kick of my abacus for fine tuned precision. Only 4 points between both armies, a mere sliver of a penguins oily flipper! I don't think the Survivor has ever been so nailbitingly close.
I feel for you UK ... I really do .... so close and yet ... denied victory by 4 measly points.
The USA won the August Survivor.... just.

Two battles make one war.
The USA = 51%
The UK & Co = 49%

Congratulations to the USA for another fine win ... but ... be careful, for the woadwearers are regrouping, girding their loins and sharpening their quizzing skills and scrolling wheels .... as last month, in July, our American friends win was a whopping 9% , now whittled down to a mere 2%.
Brave American warriors, for you are indeed brave and awesome, you are been reeled in for the kill. Did you tremble then? Can you hear their footfalls coming? Storming through the trenches , chasing on your heels, hungry for victory.

Everyone pile into the trenches and let battle commence!

Results from HQ July 2017

Greetings again staunch patriots and wondrous quizzers!

July was the first engagement  in the 11th Tour of Duty of the renowned and infamous, long running and never ending cross-Atlantic tussle between the two greatest nations on the planet.

Yes, I mean you, so sit up straight my human friends. And be Proud!
After months (dare I say, years) of domination from the great UK horde my American buddies, who, let's face it,  don't know the meaning of surrender, had made a terrific comeback and were stamping their superiority on the battlefield since January. That is ... until June, when the UK & Co rose from the ashes and swiped victory.
Is this the beginning of a UK fight back?
A return to UK dominance and global rule?

We shall see ... there are no second places in this war ... only losers!

The Challenge
The USA fielded 15 awesome troopers who grabbed 7954 points = 56.7% of the spoils of War.
Wow! I bet you're way ahead of me ...
The  UK & Co fielded 12 determined woadwearers, who bagged 6063 pts = 43.3% of the crumbs. What a brave, but failed resistance.
Yes . The USA won the July Challenge battle , and if I may humbly say so, even as I tremble in awe of their might  .. in a magnificent way.

Come one UK!  Pengy loves an underdog so I'm cheering for you here as I rattle my hi-tech abacus to see if you managed to avert disaster and do something truly spectacular on the Survivor battle.

The Survivor
The USA sent in 9 bionic wonders of human engineering, snatched 2011 pts = 52.2% of the spoils.
The UK & Co enlisted 11 fabulous fighters, bagged 1843 pts = 47.8%

A big groan just rolled across the Atlantic .. did you hear it? It registered on the Richter Scale. The Earth trembled.

The July War result.
The USA = 54.4%
The UK & Co = 45.6%

Someone hand me a tissue (one monogrammed with the Queen's Royal Arms) ... quick. This is dire stuff. The wonderful USA are running amok, stamping on those who stand in their way. You have to hand it to them .. what a fantastic win by fantastic players. So UK & Co .. what are you to do?
There will be wailing outside the railings of Buckingham Palace ... but remember .. 'We will fight them on the beaches'.... or, as it not commonly known but also ascribed to that wondrous statesman .. "And we’ll fight them with the butt ends of broken beer bottles because that's bloody well all we've got".

But ... as this pacifist Pengy doesn't condone either violence or alcoholism... just virtual internet wars ... I say, less violence, more love!

Until we can attain that high noble humanitarian aim I advise the UK to get enlisting, to get busy nibbling the performance enhancing treats  kindly provided by Quiz Beagle (or pinch what Qmel is giving our USA friends)... and wade bravely into the trenches.
Remember .. you are not alone. Your versatile, multi-talented referee is also your sympathetic medic well fortified with splints, bandages and aqua vitae.
