Re: Spoilers for Wednesday 18th October 2017 (Series 77, Prelim 76)

The panel above the letters board has, as of this episode, been changed from a textured bronze to a flat blue, and looks much the poorer for it. I imagine there's a boring behind-the-scenes reason.

This game (http://www.apterous.org/viewgame.php?game=1578356) has certainly been nominated sufficiently to qualify for GOTW, so I suspect it's a bug.

So, after the game I thought I'd have a look and see who had pencilled it already but in Lexplorer, it said the word hadn't yet been pencilled. Is this a bug or is it just that the Lexplorer pa...

Can Spoilage rules be put up somewhere, or is it meant to be a mystery format? The in-game rules tab brings up something that says "Octorock", and Spoilage doesn't appear on this page. (Not sure whether this is a bug, or whether I should request it as a feature...)
