PCS: Mid-Season Final Standings

Grand Slam puzzles truly are the great equalizer for BCCSweet, but even with a cool 150 points in his pocket, ubragg's 4-for-4 streak to start the season was too much to overcome. The leaderboard is largely unchanged from puzzle 3, with exception of Jason leapfrogging Mr. LA Sports Czar with a successful solve in puzzle 4, and Golem's return to the PCS for the Grand Slam Puzzle.

PCS Season V: Mid-Season Top 5

It's no coincidence that the only two puzzlers with all 5 solutions under their belts have distanced themselves from the pack, but Puzzle 6 marks the return of the succubus! They'll have to maintain their frenetic pace to stay in the top spots from here on out.

As mid-season champ, ubragg gets the option of taking a prize from the SoSG prize bank or creating a PCS puzzle of his own devising. As always, the puzzle option can be completely reader-generated, handed off to SoSG's puzzle elves for development, or any option in between. The prize pack this time around could only be considered "Dodger related" on Star Wars night, but as we have a well documented love of all things Star Wars here, these mini-bobbleheads seem completely appropriate.


Ubragg, let us know if you'd prefer to have the mini-bobbleheads or a future PCS puzzle of your very own. BCCSweet, if ubragg takes the schwag, and you're not able to do the puzzle, for whatever reason, we'll make an appropriate substitute runner-up prize available.

Franklin Stubbs said...

"Next puzzle: July 12!" is what I meant to say when I first posted this.
