Well done Tube Geek! I, as the old champion, present with the metaphorical cup of Nimbleweed! When will we get the next game?

Don't you mean Nimbleweed?

Probably start it on Monday, I think. Should we just hijack this thread, to save some space?

We're only on Page 8, and I imagine that the new rules will make the games shorter.

Yes, well done Tube Geek. Just to confirm the final scores:

Tube Geek 1800
A Challenge 1332
GuyBarry 408

I'm happy for the next game to start on Monday. Wasn't really in the running for this one because I had a lot of other things going on, but hopefully I can take part more in the next one.

I take it you're both happy with the new scoring system?

Should we raise the winning post (not gap needed or maximum)?

Could do, I suppose - the scores certainly increase a lot faster in this version. What do you think it should be?

By the way, if either of you wants to keep score next time then I can send you a copy of my spreadsheet - all you need to do is input the time, player and size of each claim and it calculates (nearly) everything else.

2100 or 2400 (even 3000, though a bit high) is what I would recommend.

I will also do the scores for a few games if you want me to. Send it through tomorrow morning, as I presume you need to Email it to me, do you?

I'm happy with 2160, as it is still an exact amount of hours, rather than 2100

Yes, that's a better idea, as you said. Unless GuyBarry has any objections, I'll for the scores, and the game is to 2160 not 1800 (bold in rules and the rest not).
