Yes, this is the problem I had with this question too and it also applies to my answer.

Ultimately, I felt that Mad Men had its best season this year, so I think that counts as hitting its stride.

Palaver chose to be a Republican.

Dooku and I will be Assassins.

Re: DVDTalk (Reverse) Sheep 2009 — The Year in Revue

First, let's see what Palaver does. He's got 9 people under him:

Fist of Doom
Dooku
JasonF
NORML54601
chowderhead
Tracer Bullet
orangecrush
bootsy
U6C84

They all get +1 for a total of 9. Half of that, rounded up, is 5. That is Palaver's bonus (-5).

But many felt that seasons 2 and 3 were lacking, with season 4 being a return to form.

Let's review:

Assassins give the top three players +15, +10, and +5. If they are currently in the top 3 overall, they avoid that penalty and get -15 as well.

With there being a tie for 3rd, that means that these four players will feel the wrath of the Assassins:

Damfino
wishbone
sauce07
Suprmallet

Damfino gets +30.
wishbone gets +20.
sauce07 and Suprmallet get +10.

The roles that Dooku and I picked are of the Assassin. We take down the top 3 players only, without a bonus to our score. Because we both were assassins, it made being in the Top 3 especially painful.

As far as sales figures go, I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt, as long as someone shows that they are reasonably close to 1MM.

Is the game about a movie sequel really a sequel to the game about the original movie? Hmmm ...
