Glad you enjoyed it. I figure running this game cost me about $500 in work hours.

Never again. But it was fun to do once.

At any rate, my best Sheep showing yet, I believe. And congratulations to Groucho!
No, you came in second when I very luckily won the third, I believe, politics sheep game.

But I also matched the SheepMate, which was worth -7. Or am I not understanding how the SheepMates work?

I didn't mind the Sheepmates since they really didn't have a massive impact. What I hated, and as since been refined or scrapped, was the huge multiplier equalisers. They unfairly altered the game.

For SheepMate points, you have to have given the exact same pairing. So all of those people said BOTH Palin and Obama.

You're right! I better fix it. That acutally makes Obama/Palin no longer a SheepMate bonus as well. Corrections forthcoming.

Is it too late to challenge this one? While I followed the instructions, I have it on good authority that chowderhead chose Jim Wright haphazardly, not carefully as he was supposed to. Mine should be considered unique.

Not sure a Hellfire missile counts as "dropping a bomb" actually.
