FPG 2/26/21 - RESULTS
« on: February 26, 2021, 01:01:48 PM »
When I was inputting everyone's lineups in the spreadsheet this morning, I was noticing a lot of very similar second halves. I was a little worried about those lineups coming to fruition, but I should've been worried about that first half. People did a good job of figuring out the first couple games and then things went downhill. Less points for slotting, less games chosen; there's a big gap between the top 3/4 and the rest of the group. Here's the rundown:

Spelling Bee - 11 picks. tpir04 and Jarod nailed it, 9821 gets 1x PA, Sweeper and Wayo gets 2x PA.
Most Expen$ive - 7 picks. 04 nailed it and was the only one to pick it for a loss. Cephas gets 1x PA, Jarod and Flerb get 2x PA.
Clock Game - 4 picks. Plinkoman, Sweeper, Punchy, Wayo get 10K each, Wayo also receives 4/16.
Balance Game - 6 picks. Punchy and Wayo nailed it.
Now... or Then - SANDBAG.
Card Game - 3 picks. Punchy, I, and Tan8 each get 15K.

We got our first sandbag in a while and that's the biggest thing. 04 had a perfect 1-2 and then couldn't capitalize on anything else. Wayo might have predicted Bee incorrectly, but he had a better 3-4 and that gave him the win.  Punchy also got Balance and got game 6 as well. That covers most of the lineup and our top 3 with Wayo at 10/30, 04 with 9/38, and Punch holding 8/32. Come back next time as we get accustomed to the March season and hope we don't go mad with basketball. I will see you all then!

When Kev informed me I had a blind spot on Race, I felt like I wasn't doing so hot today... but somehow my Bee/Clock half actually happened, no 4 prizers, Math was actually bait and successfully avoided by me thanks to Clock, and yet another regular GP. That's FPG for you.
S4x... the show's stabilized into something decent now, I guess...

With the way my scores have been lately I wasn't really expecting more than 3/10. Maybe one or two games, correct, but slotted wrong. So you can imagine my surprise when I nail Bee and ME, for 8/36 not even halfway through. Aaaand then came Clock Game. Was it due? I guess so, but again Math was some awfully delicious bait that I seasoned with 6 CP and a PA, putting a real damper on my spirits and setting a precedent for the rest of the show.

That was a really weird back half too, never in a million years was I going to guess NoT; maybe in two weeks and even then I don't usually slot rare games like it and others. Card we had last week, it usually skips a couple weeks at a time which it didn't here.

So yeah, best performance in a very long time, for which I am proud, but...darn you Wayo :P
