Yes congratulations, my game is flawed, we all failed to get any points today! Zarte is too good for all of us! :(

I don't understand how you get no points.

I don't understand how you get no points. That doesn't seem right to what you were saying last time.

Ok, since my game is causing so many problems, I'm sorry to say but I'm offically calling off the game. Until I can sort the flaws in my game, we will not play it here. Sorry for all the inconvenience caused! :(

You're telling me to unsubscribe? Look I'm sorry if I'm being annoying but please just say what you mean by that.

Don't worry Ryan. It's me who's doing that. I'll just keep quiet. I won't say anything more about it. No reason to call it off now.

So there you have it, congratulations to the 17 People who predicted Zarte won (Which he did!)

My Predictions were as follows in case anyone was wondering and here are the results:

QF1 (14 June): Zarte Siempre vs Jan Pask (Zarte wins by 70 Points) (Actual: 105) (Score: 0 Points)
QF2 (15 June): Toby McDonald vs Philip Aston (Philip wins by 10 Points) (Actual: 7) (Score: 3 Points)
QF3 (18 June): Chris Thorn vs Dougie Mackay (Chris wins by 30 Points) (Actual: Dougie wins by 29 Points) (Score: 0 Points)
QF4 (19 June): Phil Davies vs Paul Harper (Phil wins by 20 Points) (Actual: 12) (Score: 8 Points)
SF1 (20 June): Zarte Siempre vs Phil Daives (Zarte wins by 40 Points) (Actual: 24) (Score: 16 Points)
SF2 (21 June): Philip Aston vs Chris Thorn (Philip wins by 30 Points) (Actual: 12) (Score: 18 Points (Note that I would've gotten points still as I guessed who won correctly.)
GF (22 June): Zarte Siempre vs Philip Aston (Zarte wins by 10 Points) (Actual: 10) (Score: 0 Points)

My score would have been 45 Points off the block for this Series' Finals. I will take all your recommendations and tweak it such that it is playable for Series 79's Fnials come December!

Shouldn't you have got less than zero for QF3 as you failed to predict the winner of that game?
I thought I was good at Countdown until I joined this forum

I'm basing it on the rules of my flawed game. I am taking your point into the consideration for Series 79. Thanks for pointing out to clarify though!
