Celebrity Goo Game News
The following list shows all changes made within the last year. All entries are written by Scott Hardie.
March 2, 2023: The game sometimes called it "difficulty" per goo and other times "intended difficulty." It now consistently uses the latter term. (Thanks for the suggestion, Chris!)
February 23, 2023: The page for a round of the game will no longer attempt to show an empty list of players ("Players this round: .") if it's a brand-new round and no one has solved a goo yet.
January 14, 2023: The Current Scores page now mentions when each round's winner will be declared. I have also finished converting all mentions of "season" to "round" across the website (leaving alone a few deliberate exceptions like in old TC comments).
January 11, 2023: Rounds in the game's new format no longer show the date range when browsing by round. (There's no need to say that the goos were from "January 2023 to January 2023" in the round called January 2023.)
December 30, 2022: I fixed a bug assigning the last goo of the month to the wrong round. December's goos will remain unchanged, but it should be fixed starting with January's goos.
December 26, 2022: I fixed a bug that was assigning goos to the wrong round when they're in the final week of a month.
December 4, 2022: The game format has changed, with a simple scoring system, a monthly schedule, and more. A full explanation is in Tragic Comedy.
June 23, 2022: I removed the parameters of the game's longest streak ("from [goo 1] to [goo 2]") from the Player Achievements page.
