You and I are very close on the leaderboard!

Do we get to play in the playoff? Even if only against each other? I have:
Damefox - 3465
LesY - 3203
BrianMac - 3169
Laura - 3053
Al Sisti - 2187
Cindy - 2170
FrankieHeck - 1696...

Sound about right?

Al - I think you're looking at the scores from only one of the puzzles, not the cumulative score.

Clean is much better than with an error...you will earn more points for that one than me.
Thanks for that Brian. Scoring noobie here.
You scored 3203 on Puzzle 4 compared to my 3169.

You were right, but let's call it a tie! :)

Do you think we can play along with Puzzle 5?

I believe they're going to release the playoff puzzle for non-finalists prior to the finalists solving it.

Thanks, my mistake, I refreshed and it was up.

4. 24:55, no errors (or "clean" as people in the know seem to be saying!)

I completely don't understand the high scores, I can't even read the clues that fast!

Yeah, says it'll be released for non-finalists. Rankings I have so far (out of 1642) are:

Damefox - 135
LesY - 290
Laura - 488
BrianMac - 500
FrankieHeck - 614
Al Sisti - 649
Cindy - 679

Don't know if we have a chance to leapfrog with #5 (I could kick myself for the four errors in #2 due to "overwriting") ... but good luck!

Btw for those listening on the livestream - this is pretty much what their Tuesday podcast sounds like. Seinfeld-like fun about nothing. And puzzles. It's great.

I'll be doing the "normal clues" version of the playoff - if anyone's brave enough to use the hard clues, I think you get bonus points for that.

16:04, clean. "Easy" clues. That would've been un-doable for me with the hard clues.

13:20 with easy clues, but two errors. Home life is starting to interrupt me here...I'll use that as my excuse ;-)
