Don't know how these are scored, but I'm going to try a Soccer TD on this and see if a winner can be determined.

I do think anyone who starts a game and then refuses to finish it should be banned from all other board activities.

And now I can finally finish this up! (Phew!) I will not break ties (and yes, I know; you will be mad at me AGAIN for changing my policy); this is necessary because, quite frankly, I don't have time to break those ties at the moment.

So, without further ado, here are the standings: (if I left anyone out, just let me know!)

30th (36 pts): dhkendall
29th (34 pts): jkbrat
28th (24 pts): immaf
26th (18 pts): gamawire, dott888
24th (16 pts): lisa0012, TheyCallMeMrKid
21st (14): Vanya, econgator, Bamaman
Top 20:
20th (12): whatisbishkek
17th (10 pts): amorris525, psgola, BobF
13th (8 pts): trainman, CheezeWhiz, geolawyerman, Woof
12th (6 pts): Rackme32
11th (4 pts): teapot37
Top 10:
6th (2 pts) dnbguy, anotherclue, floridagator, cutlaah, FireAntsDefense

And our champions of The Return of Chronology are (with a perfect score to boot)....

jjwaymee, MarkBarrett, jepkid97, Kingrat47, xxaaaxx!!!

Thanks to everyone for participating and I will see you at a Chronology store near you!

Random = Cat Hat, so I guess that's why it was disqualified. But it was a truly random ordering of the events.

I'd hardly consider that cheating.

I agree. But I suppose it's the principle of the thing. Even if entering in a non-cheating fashion, an account with a history of cheating is still tainted, in many people's minds.

The actual order of the last four events was L J G H, and Random had M H C E. I calculated that Random would have finished with 64 points -- and in last place, of course!
