Mystery Round #2–Countries with Two Borders

1. China and India (they said we got it wrong, but later accepted our answer)

2. Finland and Norway

3. Argentina and Brazil

4. France and Spain

We got 1 through 3 right. Had I been paying better attention, we would had four.

Final Wager Question #2

Movie Firsts

In 2017 what black woman is scheduled to play the President of the USA in the live-action feature film, Crossbreed. This actress won the NAACP Image Award for 1-800-Missing ten years after winning the MVT Movie Award for Best Kiss.

No team got it right. We didn’t even think of her. I don’t know if ANY team actually considered her.

Low, low scores for the final. Don’t Forget to Strip Your Bartender and Cool People and Jeff tied for first with 95, and instead of a tiebreaker, they invited both to the finals. No team got a final question right!
