2013 Summer Hiatus Challenge -- Round 3, Day 1

Post by DadofTwins » Mon Aug 12, 2013 1:11 pm

There was a scoring controversy regarding R2D6, so we don't have an official Round 2 winner yet.

And yes, the controversy was entirely my fault. It's one thing to bait people into negs, which is to some extent a legitimate way to separate those with knowledge from those without. But this clue implied a possible correct answer that was, well, not.

So, if your answer to the R2D6 10-pointer was 1) the name of the single island (not the two-island country name), 2) in English, and 3) correct, you already have the 10 points, so you dn't need to play the RQ.

Otherwise, pretend that clue didn't happen and play this one. And accept my sincerest apologies.

On we go.
