Good morning puzzlers! As always thanks for participating, and thanks to SoSG Sax for stepping in with his intergalactic brain teaser. I just hope Joe Torre doesn't read it and get any ideas for lineup strategies...
So on to the results: Newcomer steve (unrelated to SoSG Sax) gets 1st place for nailing it first, followed by yours truly, fanerman, loney fan, and jose. Several got participation points as well.
Below are the new PCS Rankings (to see how they're calculated, click here). Quad still has a commanding lead, although a rare off-day by both him and Orel has allowed some of the field to inch a bit closer, most notably loney fan. Jose is also quickly shooting up the rankings, and steve debuts impressively in 5th place. And remember, PCS Tour Points are based on only the 7 most recent puzzles, so pretty soon points earned from the earlier puzzles will start to fall off the back end.
And finally, you may notice a new entrant named 'Sax/Karros' tied for 6th. Yes, that is the combined brainpower of SoSG Sax and SoSG Karros. Since we obviously can't answer our own puzzles, we each play the role of puzzle solver for the other's puzzles, and accrue points in the same Sax/Karros bucket. We're coming after you, Quad!
