    Hazel's the winner after 2 cycles through the roster!!!

    Huggles!

    Question for players:

    In future Whiz rounds, in case of a tie, do you want a) a bonus round, i.e., an 11th round? or b) a player vote via PMs for the best non-matched phrase? And this latter feature, would you like it to be a part of all rounds regardless of whether there's a tie?

    The player whose phrase gets the most votes in that case would gain 2 points as a permanent feature, or as a tie-breaker.

    :D !!!!

    :D

    Thanks! [:D]


    About the questions [face_thinking], I think a vote for the non-matched phrases might be fun. As for them becoming a permanent feature, guess it might make things more exciting (not that they are not exciting as it is) because it might actually turn some of the scores around.

    Congratulations, Hazel! =D=

    A bonus round if there is a tie. I'm not a fan of the voting for each round. It takes some of the strategy out of the game.
