Outlandish Swap V: The Fiery Cross

Scottish clans were originally a Highland way of life. The Highland clan was, above all things, a family; a family in which everybody believed they were all, from chief to blacksmith, descended from one founder or progenitor. They regarded themselves as very close kinsmen. This Swap is dedicated to such clan families and will be organized into four clans.

Results from Game 1, the Interactive Book Discussion

Lasses, Our first game is complete and we are now chatting with our new spoilees and spoilers and getting reacquainted with our clan. This was a very different challenge and it was great to see everyone share their thoughts on the different characters and answer our questions. For each of the questions, we had a phrase that would have earned your clan an extra point.

Question 1: Claire and the Scottish hospitality -- buzz phrase: Outlander/Sassenach/Englishness
Question 2: Tradition -- buzz phrase: Baptism
Question 3: Honor --buzz phrase: parole
Question 4: Claire as healer/herbalist --buzz phrase: draco seeds/alternative medicines
Question 5: Roger gentle/weak? -- buzz phrase: Roger's wedding present to Bree ( or Duncan's to Jocasta)

We would like to offer an extra point to Magaidh of Clan Fraser for mentioning Claire's Englishness, and thus having a different opinion on hospitality, and to Latharna Murray for offering alternative medicines that Claire used.

For the discussions in general, we went through each post to give the main scores for the challenge. This was truly a clan challenge, but there are a few noteworthy posters - Jeannette of Clan Fraser had the most loves (8) on any one post, Chloe of Clan Murray had the most posts per question and the most overall - 47 posts. Well done lasses! You have earned a special bonus point for your clans!

Points were awarded to each clan based on the number of participants in each question. If you participated in each question/topic, you earned your clan at least 5 points (one for each question). An additional point went to the person who earned the highest number of love, agree, funny, interesting, and disagree clicks in their posts per question (no educationals were used at all). There was no sneaker or early bird award in this game.

The scoring is as follows: participant points + click points + special bonus points + buzz phrase points = total

Beauchamp: 23 + 7 = 30
Fraser: 15 + 1 + 1 + 1= 18
MacKenzie: 12 + 2 = 14
Murray: 28 + 18 + 1 + 1 = 48

Well done, Lasses!
