I think the scores need updating a bit more often than that! I currently make it Tube Geek -11, GuyBarry +12. Agreed?

I agree with me on -11, but I make it 21 for you. What have I missed?

Hey, that's not right - you must have claimed those 50 points before you were entitled to them! I got in before the time.

Here are the scores so far by my calculation:
TubeGeek -159 (+34, -45, +5, -5, -100, -50, +2)
GuyBarry 3 (+20, +1, -10, +1, +1, -10)

Agreed?

Yes, I posted it before you replied! :D

Yes, missed the -10 for you!

I'm aways wrong, why don't you become the OGTS (official grumbleweed two scorer)

OK, I'll just post the scores as I go along. One of the beauties of this game is that (unlike Tumbleweed) there's no such thing as a "spoiler" - you're simply predicting the amount of time to the next post, regardless of what it is. You can post anything you like in the game thread and it doesn't affect the game.

Score update:
TubeGeek -219 (+34, -45, +5, -5, -100, -50, +2, 0*, -100, +40)
GuyBarry 129 (+20, +1, -10, +1, +1, -10, +25, 0**, +1, +100)

*Invalid claim of 500 points
**Invalid claim of 100 points because no valid claim had been made since my claim of 25 points (rule 3). I fell foul of my own rules there!

Well you've just made a successful 100-point claim, so maybe things will turn around...

The gap has closed considerably:

Tube Geek -19 (+34, -45, +5, -5, -100, -50, +2, 0, -100, +40, +100, +100)
GuyBarry 39 (+20, +1, -10, +1, +1, -10, +25, 0, +1, +100, -100, +10)

I'd forgotten how much fun this game was. Doesn't anyone else want to join in?
