ROUND 2 SCORES

Howlin' Howard's nifty Heirs to the Sons was very popular and he blitzed the round with a total of 26 points including 4 points for most first places entries. Gabe also had a decent round with Gallantry's A Mummer's Farce. He came second with 17 points and he and Howlin' are now tied on 32 points at the end of round 2. 

I encourage everyone to check their score. I am not confident I have found all errors but I am sorry, lack the brain power to do more checks, having just been thrashing around in acrophilia clues.

PS I have scored this way: 1st - 4 pts; 2nd - 3 pts; 3rd - 2 pts; 4th - 1 pt.

1. Games Are Man's Folly Jez Bell 1+1+4+4+1=11

2. Death Waits Raisin' Bran 1+1+ 4+3+2+1=12

3. Gallantry's A Mummer's Farce Dolourous Gabe 1+1+4+3+3+3+1+1=17

4. Go Amidst Much Force Ser Not Appearing 1+1+3+3+2=10

5. Heirs to the Sons Howlin' Howland 1+1+4+4+4+3+3+2+2+4=26

6. Turning Dragons Lady Blizzardborn 1+1+4+2=8

7. Hides Turned. Trials Settled. She Who must be Obeyed 1+1+2+2+2=8

8. Games Are Masterfully Fought Julia H. 1+1+4+3+3+1=13

9. The Dragon-ish A Free Shadow 1+1+1+1=4

10. Total Dicks! Fragile Bird 1+1+4+2+2+1+1+1=13

 
STANDINGS AFTER ROUND 2

A Free Shadow 2+4=6

Dolorous Gabe 15+17=32

Fragile Bird  6+13=19

Howlin' Howland 6+26=32

Jez Bell 2+11=13

Julia H. 11+13=24

Lady Blizzardborn 14+8=22

Raisin' Bran 11+12=23

Ser Not Appearing 10

She Who Must Be Obeyed 8+8=16
 
 
A very strong round!

I had intended mine to reference his predilection for picking the winning side.

Oh well.

Sadly, I think I only had 21 points last round.  You might want to recount that.

1 for vote, 1 for entry, 9 for three first place votes, 4 for most first place votes, 4 for two second place votes, and 2 for a third and a fourth place vote.

Apparently I never paid much attention to scoring when I was playing. I have scored based on 1st - 4 pts, 2nd - 3 pts, 3rd - 2 pts, and 4th - i pt, when I gather from HHs scoring that previously it has been 3 pts 2 pts 1 pt 1 pt.

Well perhaps I will never have to host again.

I don't mind the way I did it because it just makes it a high scoring game. It is perhaps a bit unfair to people who did well in the first round where the scores possible were lower - but we did add a player which took me over the edge where I thought we needed to have 4 favourite votes.

I'd rather just keep it as is. 

PS Have not yet received entries from a few players.

Hosts decide the scoring.  If you want 4/3/2/1 for first through fourth choices it's OK but it would be a change to what we've had in the past.  In my opinion, whatever scoring system you want is fine as long as all the players know what it is.

Overall standard went down a little this round I think. We're better than this.

Before I vote, does "Nifes" mean anything other than a misspelled word?

I looked it up. It seems to be a geological term for the earth's core, which is thought to be composed of nickel (Ni) and iron (Fe)
