It wasn't a trick. If you'd claimed 16 points I'd have stuck to my word. You shot yourself in the foot there!

All right, I won't prolong the agony any more. Both Tube Geek and I have declared we can't win. If Tube Geek agrees, then I'll let AC make an uninterrupted 22-point claim so that the game can finish. Tube Geek - the ball's in your court!

I think that would be nice - or I'll wait for another time like 23:-- when no-one else is around!

Maybe we need to amend the rules to allow for situations where one player's so far ahead that the others can't catch him/her. Otherwise they could simply force a stalemate. At the moment, if neither TG nor I claim again, you can't win, however late you stay up, because you made the last claim.

No l, if you let me claim, without word from Tube Geek I'll just wait until then!

Here's an idea - for future games the winner could be the first person either to get to 300 points or to develop a 100-point lead. Do you think that might work?

Yes, I agree, and think that is a good idea.

OK - if Tube Geek agrees then I'll make the necessary changes at the end of this game. You'd have won already if they were in place!

I won't make any more claims in this game. If Tube Geek wants you to win, all he has to do is make one more claim and then let you claim your final 22 points.

That 100 point lead thing is a good idea!

It was actually only 22, but you won anyway!


I won't start the new game yet, I'll wait for GB to change the topic title. Also, can we have a bit of a break before the next game?
