Well I claimed something like 348768734 bells the other weesk, but that was clearly invalid.

I saw 8 bells the other day. Have we had a valid claim for 9 bells yet?

Ah, I assume you're asking because you claimed 11 bells earlier?

I think 11 hours is the longest we've gone without a claim. Unless you count all the time from the 30th of January, 2005 to when the game started. 8)

Seems to be not sure what the longest valid claim is now though?

We're almost into the realms of 20 bells now.

Due to some technical upgrading, the current round of tumbleweed will end some point tomorrow morning.

Scores will then be collated - a new tumbleweed section hopefully should be back by the end of the weekend.

Gosh, you had fun in 2011 ... and I see history repeating itself in some respects.

For clarity, please would you confirm whether the current rules are :
- the message at the start of this thread at 18 Jun 2011, 21:00:12
- the message in this thread at 27 Jun 2011, 12:06:28
- somewhere (probably the scores thread) within the last few months
- somewhere/sometime else

Thanks,
DavidC

Seeing as this is a huge claim, it is probably the largest claimed. Is this a 4 year cycle?

Hi, I was just wondering if you can post weed instead if bells on the game. For example, instead of '3 bells' could I put '36 weed'? Thanks!

No. Three bells is a claim for three hours, which can only be claimed as "three bells" or "180 weed".

"36 weed" is an invalid claim.

Sorry forgot the rules! I meant to put 180, not 36! But that's been answered anyway!
