Good game. The only problem is between the keyboard and the seat!

Final High Score Tables Updated for May 16nd ABUG......

First, thank you all for participating, I hope you had a great time.
This was a very close standing in this competition and it was Arcadian who won without winning either round which shows the value of decent scores during the rounds. Great win on the second Virtual ABUG HSC Arcadian. =D> =D> =D>

That was fun! My first time joining in on an HSC, and it was great to get to see people’s faces, even if I could only make it for part of the tail end of the day! Thanks to all who organized and ran this :)

It'd be really nice to see a lot of the players who played in this tournament in the high score competitions. I notice there's some cross over but a lot of the players in this competition don't play in the formal competition (not that I can talk as I don't play in this one) :( . The more, the merrier I say :) .

Thanks Ed as always for your efforts, I can't believe I actually won a high score competition, they were indeed some very average scores I racked up!!
