Major kudos to all of you plastic addicts!

Good question, I actually forgot there was any sort of prize on the line.

Yeah, I don't know who changed that for me, but I did some volunteer testing for them when they first released their disc line (some of which are admittedly quite good).

It was kind of a bummer to see Kilgus come in after all the damage control Scott and the testers did and kill it all again. It was about the time I stopped reviewing. I had said I would review as long as he stayed off the forums. The guy just struggles to get out of his own way.

I know for me personally I knew I didn't have enough knowledge to win, but I seemed to be a bit ahead of the curve in terms of figuring out who had what slots correct. So I was willing to show exactly what I knew cuz I figured I'd never get it myself anyway.

If anyone wants to facilitate another one of these I'd be happy to pitch in a few discs.

I was wondering if anyone would pick up on that. I tend to get tunnel vision when I'm trying to get to the bottom of a problem. It's hard to get the blinders off and see some of the clues that are right in front of your face.

I knew when BM guessed the Yikun clone that it was only a matter of time.

It damn near broke my heart to see his guess! Hahaha

Yeah for a while I was trying to obfuscate my guesses, kind of like you do in a game of Clue to keep others from figuring out the things you know, but then it was taking too long and I knew everyone would get to all the ones we currently had correct eventually anyway. So I just started guessing all of the correct ones along with everyone else. Fun game! Wish I hadn't been super busy this morning and could have had a few more guesses, but that's life. We should do this again sometime; maybe I'll set one up next time Mastermind-style.
