We wrapped up Cutthroat Points Pyramid with a live Winner’s Circle for both the winners and losers brackets. I had 7-8 windows open, a bi-polar timer running, and a peanut gallery full of wisenheimers.
In our loser’s bracket it was very close. I think. I set the timer to count down from 4:00 and it rolled past the 1:00 mark with the round still going for Melissa. When I stopped the timer, however, it read 2:78. WTF? Annette came in with a time of 3:35 to solve. So sticking with the true cutthroat nature of this place, what do we do? Declare a badass mutha effin tie, that’s what! Melissa likely edged Annette by a little, though Annette was entering her answers one tap at a time on her Kindle. So I guess a draw works for me.
In the winner’s bracket there were no timer malfunctions. One player solved the board before the regulation time was over, clocking at 1:53. The Cutthroat Points Pyramid champ is…
Congrats. His enthusiasm for the game never wavered from the day he signed up. I still remember his passionate response when asked for the second time if he’d like to play: “Ugh, sure.”
Thank you everyone for playing and I hope you had fun. The only things that sucks about being on this side is not being able to play. If you have any suggestions for how the game should have been different, please let me know. I’ll be back with a different game before the month is up.
