Well I'm in the finals. I won by forfeit and the 1st player still had enough points to finish in 2nd place and make the final too.

I feel dirty.
I know the feeling! :lol:

Lost my last Gen X match 3(1)-9(6), but hey, I’ll take that 3-pointer!

Learned League registration closes in a week on February 14th. So, if anyone wants to organize private rundles, now would be a more opportune time to get started.

I kind of liked the symmetry of last season where you two were the only members of Rundle in the Jundle.

I am looking forward to repeating my second place finish in Rundle in the Jundle 5. In all seriousness, I think you have me figured out better than anyone defensively, including my husband. It's pretty scary (.803!?!).

I'm slow on the jump again, but I've signed up and hoping for (at least) one more to even it out again!

Playing along with the Barbershop 1DS, I'm a little surprised at how hard Q10 played (I knew it without the audio, having never played the game, but I think another recent-ish clue made me notice how few LLamas seem to be aware of blockbuster video games), and I'm shocked at the get rate on Q11. I mostly looked at the questions to see if there would be one about that group, but after reading the first three--two of which, to be fair, had lower get rates--I didn't think something that easy would be included.

For Q10, they didn't accept just

Bioshock
In the JIGeo 1DS, they accepted

Cartesian for Descartes
so never quite sure how the judging will go at times...

We are still at an odd number. Here I am once again, at the last minute, joining the private rundle. If anybody else wanted to get in but thought it was too late, it's not! Go ahead and sign up and make it a 10 person league.

My 11th place finish in the Mothers and Sons 1DS is thanks to it being a sneaky 80s TV quiz in disguise, and the fact I was smart enough to money those Qs. Could have been top 10 if I hadn't blanked on Q1.
