The race remained tight right up until week 10, when SynCaine bet on Midway and ended up with the perfect pick, which got him $95 million for the week, $40 million more than the second place pick. That jumped him up into first place overall and opened up a gap that nobody was able to close in the final three weeks, so the final top scores for the TAGN league for fall were:
- SynCaine’s Dark Room of Delights – $1,003,734,130
- Wilhelm’s Qeynosian Kinetoscope – $948,306,363
- Too Orangey For Crows – $926,452,645
- Cyanbane’s Neuticles Viewing Party – $914,543,237
- Po Huit’s Sweet Movie Suite – $885,407,281
- Joanie’s Joint – $838,079,152
The alternate scoring, based on a 1 to 5 point scale this time around since we had only about seven regulars, ended up as follows:
- SynCaine’s Dark Room of Delights – 42
- Too Orangey For Crows – 37
- Wilhelm’s Qeynosian Kinetoscope – 31
- Cyanbane’s Neuticles Viewing Party – 26
- Po Huit’s Sweet Movie Suite – 26
- Joanie’s Joint – 14
Bhagpuss and I swapped spots for the alternate scoring. During close weeks I was frequently in the pack but several spots down. I extended the final scores to six players as Joanie actually had the top score two weeks, which was as often as I won.
Congratulations to SynCaine for winning the season!
The winter, or “awards” season starts this week. I won’t be covering it on a weekly basis. But if it turns out to be another interesting race I will give a mid-season update.
