Re: TD 449 - The Sheeplympics (Q6-8 Revealed)

Isn't the winner of the sheeplympics the one who sheeps the most?

However, and I alluded to this as well in the...

TD 449 - The Sheeplympics (Final Standings)

If everyone's going to drop Austen, may as well pick it up, right? Dropping Q6 as Opus discussed is probably the right play, but this is why I think there's a case for dropping Q7 as well. There's an equally narrow answer range with questions that, for the most part, are not particularly difficult....
