We were back at Farside for more of Toronto's Greatest Game Show at your friendly neighborhood 'side bar! Not only did a remix of Trivia Club's traveling house team take part in the action, but we also had a wonderful selection of newcomers also take part in the night's events!

 Trivia Classic  ended with an unpredictable result after the result, as The Losers Club led the field with 31.5 points, but did not end up staying for the second round! Filming shoots equal early mornings y'all! Tied for second place after round one were Tacos de Chorizo, but the date night also took the team away from Farside after the first frame, and thus the other team tied for second, Ozma, now found himself in first! Half a point back from Oz were the Cloud Pleasers, a certain special mix of M. Night Shaym-Alien members plus an all-new addition on the night! Rounding out the first round Top Five (top five, top five) were Gary Larson!

 Game Show Games   began with Ozma grabbing the TOP TEN in Countdown Takedown, while Cloud Pleasers grabbing the eight points! Gary Larson grabbed the TOP TEN in Survey Says, while Cloud Pleasers enjoyed another eight points, and Ozma nabbed six points. Finally in Combo Breakdown, Cloud Pleasers took the pop culture bent on the Break and were the last team standing with FIVE POINTS to the two points from Ozma, which finally took them two points ahead of Ozma for the first time on the night!

Now in first place, Cloud Pleasers held pat on a wavering  Tri-Pardo   round, which was the smart decision as both Gary Larson and Ozma in their first time out... went all out on the three Pardo questions, which included a first category rolled for two points by Ozma, a second category rolled for TWENTY points by Gary Larson, and a third category rolled for nineteen points by Cloud Pleasers, for a potential forty-one points! Forty-one points lost by both Ozma and Gary Larson, meaning that the Cloud Pleasers had suddenly shifted very much into the lead before the Finale!

Separated from the two other teams though, Cloud Pleasers still went all in on the  Finale  question, as did Gary Larson and Ozma, less by habit and more now to fight their way out of the negative they had found themselves in!

Those Shaym-Aliens were too far away to catch however, as Ozma finished as the runner-up on the night, and CLOUD PLEASERS finished as GOLDEN VHS CHAMPS! It was the first Golden VHS for the Cloud Pleasers remix of Shaym-Aliens, and third VHS the M. Night Shaym-Aliens at Farside making them the early top team in Chinatown East, while also being the twenty-seventh victory all-time for the M. Night Shaym-Aliens!
