LaVonne, congratulations on another victory! You played a great season, solving nearly every goo. Between this and the hall of fame, this seems to be your year. :-D

Erik, Chris, Russ, you all earned nearly as many points as LaVonne, so well done! It was a tough season.

I for one am glad the cats and pagoda are back. It feels like a big improvement over the badges. What do you think?

Someone pointed out that Chairo doesn't seem to have come up even once this season. Checking the data now, I don't see any record of it happening. I'll look into it and mention in the news page if I change any code. Thanks for bringing that to my attention, player.

The winter 2019 season begins tomorrow with a two-week theme right off the bat. Enjoy!

I was gunning for you at the end. I just needed a cat at the 11th hour to pull ahead, but alas, the odds were not in my favor.

I was hoping for luck, while you were winning with skill.

Well played! Congrats on another win!

Congrats to your second victory! A hard fought battle to stay at the top all the way through the season.

Congrats Lavonne! A well played season.

Thanks, guys, for the nice comments! I'm thrilled to have a second victory! It was a tight race to the end and, frankly, Erik, I thought the win was yours, particularly since I was current on answers and you still had six to play. My strategy (if you want to call it that!) was merely to play every day that I logged onto the site, and not worry about the scores of others, cats awarded, etc. I never liked being in the top spot because cats didn't seem to find you as much....kept waiting for others to pass me, but it seemed a "wait game" was the method of play for most everyone. Just lucky, I guess! That's why I love the Pagoda and Cats....anyone can win! Need that --- cause you guys are all tough, outstanding players!

You're right, Scott! It was an awesome year --- doesn't get much better than 2018! Can't wait for Winter season to start --- good luck to everyone!

It's probably too late for that now, but I'd like to wish everyone a merry Christmas, even if it's just Chinese food and a movie. Is anyone having a particularly good or bad holiday weekend? Go »

The Veracity of Political Correctness

Watching a tv drama the other day, I was struck by a line of dialogue that I've heard said by various people over the last couple of years, since Trump's campaign first picked up steam and dredged up all kinds of racist comments in public: "It's like e Go »
