Summer Hiatus Challenge 2017--Round 2, Day 2

Post by rjaguar3 » Tue Aug 08, 2017 8:29 am

Though the R1D6 replacement question is still outstanding, it looks like Clue Jungry has clinched the round 1 title, with a score of 416. Congratulations!

As a reminder, everyone who hasn't played round 1 is still welcome to play it for the wildcard points.

I also thank Clue Jungry for today's guest category.

On to R2D2 (DadofTwins already exhausted all the good Star Wars jokes).
