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.

Game 9 (book discussion) Results

Fiona Fraser back to report some more game results...for our final game, the book discussion, we had a total of 17 participants (plus the chieftessess, but they were ineligible for point earning). The scoring for this game is a little different from the last one, so I've explained it below.

Each question you answered earned you 2 points. If you chimed in on all 4 discussions, you earned an extra 2 points (I'm lookin' at you, bartlebean, violetdawn, pepperpurl & georgethegirl!). As this was a team challenge, if you participated at all, you earned an additional point for your team (7-Beauchamp, 5-Murray, 4-Fraser, 1-MacKenzie).

In lieu of the early bird and the sneaker awards, bonus points were awarded to the person who garnered the most interest (i.e. the most clicks - 35, to be exact -- mostly in agrees), and the person who made the most contributions to the thread overall. In this case, both of these categories are won by the same lass...Pepperpurl! Congrats on earning an extra 2 points for clan Murray!

Our final points award is the random drawing by my boys, done of the participants who took part in all 4 discussions. Bartlebean is the winner of that one! Congrats on winning 5 points for clan Beauchamp!

Point totals for this game (participation points + 2 points for participating in all 4 discussions + number of participants from your clan + bonus points + 5pts to the drawing winner)

Beauchamp: 36 + 4 + 7 + 0 + 5 = 52
Murray: 26 + 4 + 5 + 2 + 0 = 37
Fraser: 12 + 0 + 4 + 0 + 0 = 16
MacKenzie: 4 + 0 + 1 + 0 + 0 = 5

Stay tuned for more game results this week!

Game results -- game 7

We're a might out of order here, lasses, but we wanted to get you some results! We will be getting the results to games 4-6 (and 8) to you soon, don't worry. So without further ado... the participants were:

Beauchamp: Caroline, Ealasaid, Besse, Nemetona, Muirne, Lady NF, Elspeth

...and the extra point winners are:

Early Bird - Caireann

And of course all of those with perfect scores earn an extra point (which we did not add separately, but is there, I promise!), and one lucky lass from that group will win an extra 5 points

...and that lass is...(insert drumroll here):
Magaidh! Congrats!!

Point totals (for this game only) are as follows:

Beauchamp: 71
Fraser: 11 + 5 (perfect) = 16
