So, here's where we sit.

I have ten puzzles left. We have five players. I'm also running out of steam on this game that has been going on for half the year (I'm also debating bringing back my trivia contest). So here's my plan:

Two more games, five rounds each. Everybody plays.
Letter values doubled the first game, tripled the second game.
Maybe no bonus round?

And then we'll declare this game over. Yea? Nay?

Assuming no major objections, Game 9 will start tomorrow with Senza Cervello first up.

Can I just have the real cash and we call it quits? :lol:
In lieu of that, your plan sounds good.
And I like the Trivia or Name that City games. ty.

I wouldn't mind taking a break from this for some trivia. Save what you have...maybe we can come back to it later and get some more people to play.

That was another consideration. I don't have any trivia prepped, but I figured (with July 4th coming up) we could take a week or two off and start up a trivia game in mid-July.

Though the last round of trivia kind of faded, in it's hey-day it was far more popular.
