Just asking, but do I not get any bonus points for answering Ohio twice?


And I will admit beforehand that I really didn't understand the whole bonus structure.

Sorry! I missed it.

If you answered a state twice, you got a -1 bonus. If you answered a state three times, you got a -3 bonus. If you answered a state four times, you got a -6 bonus.

Your max total bonus could be -15.

I think, for me at least, the Politics Sheep well has run dry (for the time being). But my next game will be in the Movie Forum.

I hoped for the middle but fell into the bottom half. Oh well, at least I finished ahead of CRM114.

Congrats Pharoh!

I can't find the thread for the next one. Forum issues?

Congrats, Pharoh. Good job Bussy.

The Missouri is the big one -- it separates Kansas City, Kansas from Kansas City, Missouri (and, more generally, Kansas from Missouri). Once I realized that the Missouri is the eastern border of Kansas, I realized that Kansas can't possibly be on the Mississippi (and it's obviously not on the Great Lakes or a coast).

It helps that I just finished reading this:

I realize that this post was 9 days old, but I was out of town and just now finished reading this thread (which is still surprisingly entertaining), but I couldn't help responding to this:

I had 4 KSs (Q 1, 20, 23, and 31) and 3 PAs (Q 7, 12, 17). Shouldn't that be 9 bonus points?

Any suggestions for a Movie Sheep game? I love suggestions.

One of your Kansas questions was an incorrect answer.
