In that case the answer is yes. I'll leave it to you to work out why claiming "three bells" is better than claiming "180 weed".

I (think I) know. It's because 1 bell is worth 75 points, and 75 x 3 is 225, better than 180!

I note, with some amusement, that the text accompanying the Tumbleweed forum on the home page has been changed from "the game you either love or hate" to "the game you either hate or really hate".

I think AC's in invalid. Due to Iain being 57 mins early. And AC making the claim before...

Sorry... I want to be on time going onto 2017!

To make this clear, I am happy to continue scoring and it isn't lack of motivation.
