I don't believe you for a second when you say you were playing it to make a point. You took it seriously enough.

That's what you thought :wink:

Do you remember a while ago when I introduced "Grumbleweed" and "Stumbleweed"? Did you not get the message then?

[Oh hell, I accidentally posted the scores in the game thread, creating an inadvertent spoiler. Sorry.]

Scores as at 23:59 29/08/2015 - weekly totals in brackets, overall totals in bold.

GuyBarry (3675) 25275
DavidC (2475) 18975
leamfarrar (2625) 5475
Going Und. (2475) 2480
tubeguru (0) 600
h. traveller (0) 375
tractakid (0) 18
moley (525) -1200

Quite an impressive comeback from Going Underground there, pushing tubeguru into fifth place, and a strong performance from leamfarrar, who actually came second on the weekly totals. My lead over DavidC is increasing though - will he be able to catch me up?

All right, they're not in bold, but I'm sure you can tell which is which :)

Well he will if I carry on posting spoilers like that one :)

I don't know. If he did, he needs to brush up on his jokes.

Scores as at 23:59 05/09/2015 - weekly totals in brackets, overall totals in bold.

GuyBarry (4800) 30075
DavidC (4650) 23625
leamfarrar (1200) 6675
Going Und. (1575) 4055
tubeguru (0) 600
h. traveller (0) 375
tractakid (0) 18
moley (0) -1200

Another strong performance from Going Underground, who could be challenging leamfarrar for third place soon. DavidC was actually ahead on the weekly totals for most of the week, but I just managed to sneak ahead at the end, so my overall lead is up slightly. Not much activity from the rest of the field...

Well he hasn't fooled either me or DavidC, so it's clearly not working very well...

Unless I'm very much mistaken, tubeguru's claim of "600 bells" at 12:57 is invalid:
The Rules wrote: - A spoiler followed by a claim for points:

The points claim is invalid, and the points will be deducted. The "game clock" will be reset to the time of the spoiler.
Which means a penalty of 45000 points. Have I missed something?

Is it likely that 25 days have passed since the last valid claim or spoiler? If not, I'd say it is indeed invalid ...

It was such a ridiculous claim that I thought you must be exploiting a loophole. But if you want me to deduct 45000 points, I'll do so.

Odd way to play...
