Staying with the usual low bar of 'classic' around here:

2018-04-30 22:15:38 Ian Volante got it first. You have 0.0 seconds left.
2018-04-30 22:15:38 Time's up and Ian Volante was the only person to get it, solving it in 60.0 seconds and receiving 18 bonus points. The answer to RIPEMIL was IMPERIL.

The reaction to people finding out today's duel is Dutch Speed Stepdown Letters Attack was quite something.

Don't worry about it - everyone says some stuff that they don't mean or don't intend.

Hardly classic but made me chuckle

Joyce Phillips finished a classic game with Judith Young, winning 91-75.
Judith Young left the room.
