This is a high quality game so far- Locoman was a fab spot, never heard of it myself!

Apterous says PELAGES is allowed, but if Susie and Oxford Dictionaries say it's a mass noun, should it be removed?

COLUMNS as an easier 7 in R8.

Maybe, but one of the example sentences talks about the "first pelage", so can't we have the second and third pelages as well?

Tony is a consistently good player- after watching his past few games, think we will be seeing a back to back run of octochamps.

Wow Tony's doing really good here. I agree with tom in thinking he could become an octochamp.

Interesting that DC got UBIETY but missed DUBIETY. Also DUENNAS later on.

What a great challenger, in more ways than one.
