Matthew S Rutherford *It should say 'noise you can hear.' Well done me.

Matthew S Rutherford Three Hypertouch 9's-you're welcome, folks....
ME-01; #Mellor2020 storms back onto the podium for the first time since SC, equalling the 4th-highest score in this format. #Robjohns2020's slight disaster is giving #Sean2020's game a run for their money in funniest moment of the tourney.

Matthew S Rutherford

Matthew S Rutherford ME-02; Another underdog moment as #Thomas2020 sees off the heavyweights to possibly pinch an electoral vote in a much closer round, the top five separated by as many points.

ME At-Large; #Todd2020, having got off to a slow start, has kept some momentum going from MN to possibly take two electoral votes here.

Matthew S Rutherford

Matthew S Rutherford #Cappleman2020 was briefly leading in more than one ME race, but now finds himself in third in two of them. Current leader #Jim2020 will have to wait till Texas to try and extend his lead. #Worsley2020, #Artell2020 and #Drury2020 have all found their way onto the podiums in other rounds but are still waiting to break their deadlocks.

Callum Todd

Callum Todd My usual standard rule for hypertouch is don't do a risky word that'll be invalid and don't panic on the numbers and conundrum and you should get 10 points per round on average.

I made each of those three mistakes, one in each game here -.-

Jim M

Jim M I feel your pain, Cal. Some of the words I risked were mad in hindsight, for the sake of a point here and there.

Callum Todd

Callum Todd I find it's similar to stepdown rules: don't risk 9 points for the sake of 1.

Matthew S Rutherford ME-01 and 02 stay the same, but a change up to for the state at-large as #Tassier2020 takes a two-point lead by merely 0.6 seconds, possibly becoming the ninth player to take some electoral votes and preventing #Todd2020 from carrying his second state.

Matthew S Rutherford

Matthew S Rutherford It's been a good day for #Hare2020. Lead gained in UT and another round of Bush v Gore goes in ME At-Large. his favour here. Equalling #Worsley2020 on 87, he scores 5 maxes to Jack's 4. He nearly nicked ME-01 as well, but only managed 86 to #Mellor2020's 89. The leading pack all staying close to one another. So much for social distancing...

Bradley Horrocks

Bradley Horrocks Happy for the likely 2 points, doubt it will much difference in the end? Now to learn all the Spoilage stuff

Matthew S Rutherford

Matthew S Rutherford Possibly not much in the end, but for now you've overtaken #Mellor2020 in the standings and will overtake #Canuck2020 if things stay as they are.

Dave Robjohns

Dave Robjohns Nooo just leave spoilage ;)

Tourney round: Apterous Presidential Election: Maine

<< Minnesota | Texas >>

Notes from the organizer: Leaping to the Northeast and a twist. Because of reasons, Maine is one of two states who divvy their votes up by Congressional District, rather than use the winner-take-all system you all (well, the victors) know and love. The other is Nebraska, which will come in June.

Candidates, this means will face three games at the same time. Maine has 4 electoral votes to give, spread as follows.
GAME 1-For Congressional District ME-01, which gives 1 electoral vote.
GAME 2-For ME-02, again giving 1 vote.
GAME 3-For the state at-large. This gives 2 electoral votes.

Format is a Hypertouch 9 for all three games (that noise you can here is #Todd2020 celebrating and the rest of you wanting to kill me)

If you are worried about me going small, give it till Tuesday and your worries will fade away. All usual rules apply. Best of luck!

Ran from: 28 March – 3 April 2020. Format: Hypertouch 9. Matches: One-off. Approved.
