I don't think this counts as a spoiler...but people...please make sure you use headphones today for the Just Audio ML, especially if you're at work.

I actually remembered to create the private rundle with time to spare!

Rundle Name: Rundle in the Jundle 8
Registration Code: readytorundle
Thanks!
Is there room in the private rundle for new players? I've been in a different one for a year, but they've lost a lot of members recently and aren't very talkative any more.

All are welcome! We haven't been so talkative in the private rundle - except here on these boards, which is sort of the point. It is a rundle open to all denizens of JBoard. I should caution that the last few seasons there have been some very strong A-rundle players, so I treat it as a lesson in humility (like all of Learned League, really).

I think that there were three A Rundle winners in my last group, so humility is a lesson deeply ingrained by this point. I'll join up. It currently stands at an odd number (5), so it may be that I am ejected into private Rundle limbo.

Hope everyone shows up for my Clowns ODS on Wednesday :O)

And good news! I’ll be back on the ODS schedule next October with Curses. Seemed like a good follow up to Clowns ;)

I'll toot it for him then. I played this as soon as it came out and enjoyed it a good deal. It's still live, so go play it if you have the inclination.

I have about a 40-60 preference not to participate, but am willing to play to make an even number. I am currently signed up as the "odd man out" (number 13), which will accomplish exactly that unless two more people want to play. If you go in to join and will be number 15, PM me and I'll drop out.

With a couple of lucky guesses, I ended up getting my 2nd ever 12/12 on a 1DS (Things You Learned in Kindergarten). Ended up in 5th, but if I had moneyed any of #s 3, 9, 11, or 12 instead of #2, I would've won the thing. Oh well, them's the breaks...but I'll be happy with a tie for my highest-ever 1DS finish!

As I mentioned above, I had mixed feelings about it anyway--I was going to let the coin flip of odd vs. even decide for me. As it turned out, I heard about another private rundle that needed a single and joined that, so it's :) all around.
