Re: The CoC Predictions Game

Another prediction about this Champion of Champions... ...the long standing game high score record of 146 will finally be beaten. My new prediction is that 150pts will remain unbeaten for fewer than 3 years. Yeah, I've got some funny inkling about that too, but it will not be easy for any player......

Re: Spoilers for Thursday 17th January 2019 (COC XV, QF 4)

What an absolutely amazing game. Commiserations to Tom who played superbly, and to Zarte for getting the highest ever score! (Despite dropping pts on a round!). With the greatest of respect to the remaining candidates, I cannot see Mr Siempre being surpassed at all, but we shall see........
