The Mindbenders have done their bit. Now let's hope the pesky pirates fall off the plank.

Time to change the ruling when it's a tie. Points must be totalled between tied teams methinks.

You can't just add the points up - the questions were different for all teams.  You would have to introduce an indexed score based on actual scores compared to mean scores for each game played......  :-)  (or something like that)

My argument is that the questions should be the same for all teams, how you reprogram the computer is beyond me.

Games have rules, and they are only games.

If aggregate points are counted it:

a) becomes a different game

b) it is within the realms of possibility that lower teams on a table by games won, could have higher aggregate points than the winners.

I too know nothing of how the computing works on this but it sounds as if Shortbread wants a team decathlon - how easy it for decathlons to be played by both teams and individuals?

Anyway I'm content. WELL DONE MY TEAM - THE SUBSTITUTES!

If both teams agree I can send a tie-breaker challenge but otherwise the draw stands.

The competition stays how it is, changing the programming would be a huge amount of work and not needed as this is a team vs team comp and when 2 teams play they get the same questions to get the points.

Leave it be it was only me thinking out loudly.

Cheers, I didn't want to change anything with my decathlon comment, merely wanted to reinforce tthe idea that we're all just playing a game with rules ( that I never read). Many thanks for all your work.

I think we're happy to call this one a tie which is a perfectly honourable result.  There'll be another Kevvie next month where any differences can be settled (until the following month!).  By Wednesday this will be last week's chip wrappings.

Congratulations to the Mindbenders and Mariners. 

Thanks to the Army for putting up with my mediocre playing this month.

No tournaments this coming week but the following week is the 100th Decathlon so make sure you are signed up to be in the running for the centennial honours.
