Apologies everyone, I somehow managed to mangle the first three definitions on my score sheet.  This means I announced the wrong winner.

Sorry JohnnyB.

 

The corrected votes are as follows, with 3 players on 4 points – Paul, Tim B and Daniel.  Help!  I am too stressed to find the rules. I know it’s not Paul, but will someone please tell me who the winner is.

Hi Ann,

It's not Paul. Natural points (4 + 0) always beat a score that includes the 2 points for gussing the correct defintion (2 + 2). So that leaves Tim B and Dan.
The next tie breaker rules are the 4-round and 5-round rolling scores. I forget the details of those but in this case Dan is miles ahead of Tim, so that makes Dan the winner and next dealer, and Tim the "real winner".

However, Johnny has already dealt a new word. I think Johnny and Dan should determine whether to go ahead with Johnny's word, or hand the deal over to Dan.

Cheers,
Hugo

Don't feel bad, Ann. Some people have dealt much more error-filled rounds. Like me, for instance.

And kudos for the great-looking chart.

Based on longstanding precedent documented in the "Real Rules" we'll stick with Johnny's woid.

If he wants to punt one of his future deals over to me as payback I'm fine with that.  Although I think I recall being a backup not too many rounds ago so maybe the karma should go elsewhere. :-)
