You wouldn't have got the points, so probably just as well!

That is not a post containing the single word "play"! So it's not a valid "play" post, which means you lose another 10 points and anyone else can make a "play" post.
Damn, forgot that rule!

Also, after a few rounds of this, shall we play a bit more Grumbleweed?

Do you mean Nimbleweed. If you do mean Grimbleweed, it needs a rules patch up!

Invalid "snap" from TG (should have been at 11 seconds past). Another 10-point penalty!

Urgh, was looking at the one last night!

Also, is it OK if play posts are in red, so that it is easier to see them when searching for the time?!
