Congratulations to Can't Stop Winners

Saturday, November 15, 2008


The Can't Stop Premiere Event was a great success. We had four tables running simultaneously, for two hours. And, it was my first time DJ'ing! Thanks to everyone who said I have a great voice. Everything ran pretty smoothly. The only real glitch was when I forgot to reset all the scoreboards at the same time, so only one board was showing the correct results. But that just gave me more chances to announce the running scores to everyone.
It was a very close event, with the lead changing off several times over the course of the event. In the end, our final winners were Aries Oh, Eoland Elvehjem, Ingeborg Apfelbaum, Samantha Poindexter, and Seth Troell. They each won their own Personal copy of the new game. Congratulations!

is the scoring for the world rankings different than local ones?

There's a notecard in the scoreboards that explains the scoring.

Yes, it's different. Local scoring gives you points for each game: 50 points per column claimed, and 1-10 points for each marker on the board at game end.

World scoring works according to the same ranking algorithm that all the other Procyon games use. It's based on Google PageRank. You get points for beating other players, and you get the most points for beating a lot of different players, and for beating players with high world ranking scores.
