Unfortunately, looks like Barker's Bargain Bar has been retired. When preparing your cards, make sure to not include it.  :cry:

I've had BBB on my card for the past number of weeks, I was beginning to wonder where it was.  :-?

I'll send mine in a little bit.

And don't forget that this is the purple wheel week, so Bargain Bar could very well still be played this week. :D

People are tired of the f**kery and drama, but if we'd actually talk to each other sometimes instead of a whole bunch of private conversations with other people, it'd go a long way to perhaps fixing the problems most seem to see in the site.

Maybe it's a good thing that I'm not playing anymore...
Well, this week was supposed to be a return to normalcy, but that's clearly not allowed.  Since you feel there is no need for this week's FPG to continue, I feel there is no need to continue as an FPG host or a G-R.net member.  Since most people are so desperate to push me out of here, why delay it?  I would have preferred that everybody publicly admitted it rather than string me along for the last two days, but it is what it is.  I am hereby resigning as FPG host and moderator, effective immediately.  whammy007 is the new permanent host.  No R-rated rant or airing of grievances from me.  Just a polite "goodbye for good".

An out-of-the-ordinary purple Wheel makes this Week's out-of-the-ordinary CARDS stand out even more.  Nobody took the challenge of incorporating Gas Money as a center square; in fact, almost everyone seemed to leave the game off their CARDS altogether.  Good thing, as it wasn't even played!

The biggest out-of-the-ordinary thing I noted going through the CARDS was how close everyone was to being eliminated this Week.  It was only through luck that many of you folks survived.

Our top-scorer, with a (measly, compared the previous Week's highs) Score of 27 this Week was Enzo Aquarius.  After Day 4, he held second place at 14--no GRECOS, no PATTERNS.  Two of the three SPACES he marked on Day 5 gave him the two GRECOS he needed to vault out of elimination.

Close finisher Chad1787 didn't mark a single SPACE on the bottom row of his CARD, but a GRECO and a PATTERN created by the same two SPACES (One Away and Plinko) gave him a close-second finish.

Third place went to Flerbert419 who, for marking only 12 SPACES (the last two Days he only marked two SPACES total), managed two quick GRECOS.  cu2010's GRECO and Footix's "Lucky" PATTERN saved elimination for the two players, considering there was some rather curious picks on each CARD.

Sadly, we must say goodbye to our lone female player, FieldsFan336.  No luck means for no win this Week, but it may have been saved with a better placement of Plinko.  Who knows...

What we do know is that we're halfway done with the Season.  What will be in store in the final few Weeks?  Will there be a twist?  Will there be more unexpected drama?  Will there be more prizes?  To answer those questions: "I don't know", "You can bet your dauber on it", "As long as the Sun's in the sky", "Not likely"...not necessarily in that order.   :oldlol:

Ohbeforeiforget, congratulations and a raffle entry go out to cu2010, Enzo Aquarius, and Flerbert419 for correctly guessing five cars would be won [out of 11!?]!
