I'm 29% sure you should have scored a point during the last round. Steave?

Technically, I think the one post that would have earned her a point didn't because that move had already been used. Not 100% sure on that though.

Hey Insp! You want to play catch?

Now I'm worried this game is going to devolve into everyone helpfully giving me more and more obvious hints that I fail to figure out.

But am I really trying to help you, or am I just finding clever ways to earn the 5 or so points I need to catch up with Dodger77?

Yep.
I missed it because the number was to large to fit on my chart and was put down as a footnote.

Also because Insp wasn't on the scoreboard when it should include every player, even those with no points.

Oof. Sorry about that.

*Gently hands Insp a super ball*
Here's a ball. Perhaps you'd like to bounce it?


Kitoba:
With my twelve to your seven, all I have to do is keep pace with your posts. I don't think there's a way to close the gap. In essence, what I'm saying is

Post, post, post as much as you can.
You won't catch me, I'm the Dodger-bread man!

POOF!

You may have 2 moves there, but do they C-O-U-N-T?

Uh oh. In A.D. 2101 war was beginning?

Actually, there is a way to catch me. But as long as Steave is disinclined to reveal how to do it, I think I am okay.

Crap, and I thought I understood the game... there must be an additional secret rule no one has figured out yet. Well, if there are 50 ways to leave your lover, and 51 ways to love your lever, then there surely must be 52 ways to score points in the Steave game....

Is it really a secret rule if it's right there on Page 1, Post #3 though? But like I said, we have no idea how to accomplish it so we're kind of stuck.

I am getting excited because we're almost to the seventh page (Just a couple more posts!). This will have been the quickest round in a long, long time!

Could I do something like "Dodger77 -63 points"? It can't be that easy! Or maybe that's too greedy. Maybe I should do "Dodger -1 point" or "d77 -3 points".
