This is brutally hard, but definetly an excellent port!

 

Solomon's Key: 122330

Never played this game before this contest started, and I really had fun learning it's first dozen or so levels this weekend. I thought the first few levels were hard, but it gets REALLY difficult around level 10!

Also, my 5200 system I won on eBay did not arrive in time so I will not get a score in for that game. Too bad too because I also got one of those Best Electronics upgraded gold controllers. Argh!

Scoring is 10/9/8/6/4/2/1 (Scoring for all 7 spots - provided they post a score).

As for the end date, I noticed too late I didn't have an end time on the date, so to avoid anyone stating I prevented them from scoring, posted a one week extension with a time limit on it.

Anyone else feel that the post-date extension isn't really fair to skosh? I hate being criticial, but if I were in his shoes, I'd be pretty annoyed right now. No matter when the end time was, he's been in the lead since Saturday evening.

 

Also, I think using that scoring system, I would be at 60, not 53. Not that it matters with the current rankings, but still... :-)

This is why I shouldn't trust (in my head) math... Two scoring updates occur...

One - Sdamon goes from 53 to 59 (10-8-9-10-8-6-8)

Two - Toymailman drops from 43 to 39 (6-9-10-0-6-4-6)

 

If Skosh wishes to file a protest, then I'll listen against the time extension. Until then, the game is still on.

Still think I should be at 60 = I'm at 7 points on Solomon's Key, not 6... right?

 

As long as skosh is OK with the time extension, I'm fine with it.

no problem, now catch him!

 

Can't do it... the more I think about it, the more I'm not comfortable trying to beat him at this point. I was certain that skosh won fair and square at midnight on Sunday, and I fully expected to see him be crowned champion at that point. Even if I could catch him this week with the extension (which is far from certain... the dude is a monster player!), I wouldn't feel right 'winning' under those circumstances. My current scores will be my final ones.

That is your choice, and I am fine with your personal decision. As I have stated previously, unless skosh himself speaks on the issue, I don't see him having any troubles with you (or anyone) giving it their all.

I will not "protest" however did expect things to end on the 12th. Whatever is decided regarding this is fine by me.
