Well, we hit 10 pages, and there's probably a less than 3% chance anyone else was able to catch up to you. :sam:

@Steave - Can we get the full rundown on the rules please? Oh, and give '77 his official victory certification...

Do I want to give you the rules?
What if I want to run this game again?

Yeah okay.

It's a basic grid system. Numbers on one axis, letters on the other.
Score a point by taking a spot on the board. You can't score on a spot someone else has already taken.
Has anyone figured out how you steal points from someone else?

@Steave - Congrats on the first WGARS thread to reach 10 pages in years!
@Dodger77 - Congrats on winning!

So, I still don't get how the letters come in. I was personally going off a theory that each number no one had guessed yet was a point. I still don't understand steals...

:sam:

Luckily, I have my own game now, where I understand all the rules...

Stealing happened when your moves bookended another persons squares on the grid.

For example, if Dodger77 had squares A4,A5,A6,&A7 and Kitoba had square A8 and then had a move which placed them on A3, they would take all of Dodger's squares in the line.

Huh interesting. I was doing the same thing kitoba was doing, just throwing numbers out there because that was what was working.

That's actually very cool! :kiki: Too bad I didn't figure it out :sam:

So where did the letters come from? was it the last letter you posted before you mentioned a number?

It was the first stand-alone number so I had a lot of Is & As.
As I mentioned, I was being quite liberal with what I would count as a valid number or letter so "You too" would have been a valid move. I also had a row and column on the grid for a zero variable (letter or number on its own)
