Is there still space in the rundle? If so, what sort of variety (i.e. A-E) are most people? I wouldn't want to join and end up being easy prey for people :/
There's plenty of room. It has traditionally been a mix of rundles, weighted slightly toward the "A" end of the spectrum. I wouldn't worry too much about being easy prey.

I'm in a private rundle that's mostly A rundlers (note: this is not the Jboard rundle) and it's still really fun. I've had at most 5 wins in a season, but I've always managed to avoid last place, and it is SUCH a great feeling when you do beat or tie someone who is way better than you (it happens every season!). The way I see it, my regular E rundle is for trying to win, and my private rundle is for playing against people I know and having fun.

Thanks for setting this up. I look forward to playing against other boardies in LL74.

It has varied the last three times, but it currently has several A Rundlers (Boson and I enjoy battling more frequently over the breakfast table), and B and D is represented. I know I normally have at least a couple 2 or fewer correct total answer days, and am entirely beatable to anyone when that happens. We are already at 6, and there is plenty of room for more. Last time we had a total of 12, and a wide range of skill levels and A-E rundles. It is also fun playing against some of the people we chat with online. :-) Come, have fun! (Or at least get more practice assigning defense points!)

Is there going to be another Rundle in the Jundle?
It looks like I missed the deadline. I'm really sorry about that. It will definitely be back for LL74.
I hope so! It made things a little more dull for LL73. :-) If BigDaddyMatty is not able, is there another Commissioner's Circle member willing to step up?
Thanks for reminding me! Here's the info. Come one, come all!
Rundle name: Rundle in the Jundle 4
Password: jboardisnumber1
Registration for the private rundle ends tomorrow morning at 9:00 PT. We are currently at eight, which is a pretty good number, but it would be great to get even more.

Looks like rookies can't join, or I would--but next year!

You need to be at the premier level ($50+ annually) to join a private rundle. I don't think rookies are specifically excluded, but since your first season is free, you likely haven't paid.

Enjoy your rookie season!

The jboard private rundle is looking pretty fun - we need one more to get an even number. Will it be you?

The way I read it, you have to be both a non-rookie and paid--I may have to read it over again.
