If you didn't notice Sunday, we didn't get showdown tokens either. I am one of the few here who uses them and I am out. Support says they should be coming. I am 23-0- with 2 Stalemates, is this close to any record ??

I never use mine - will sell you some cheap. And, since no one got them this week, we are all still in the same relative position. I assume you are you, and not your son, by the way.

My showdown percentage is nothing to talk about but I still do them as soon as I get my token - doing pretty well lately. I am very impressed with your showdown prowess! I would be surprised if that weren't a record here - so far!

Speaking of showdowns, has anyone else noticed a bug in the amount of points awarded once you get to a certain point? It appears that the maximum amount is 214,748,364 points, even though 10% of your points may be higher. I thought this was just a bug with my account, but I noticed a bug in the "report a bug" section where another player earned the exact same number of points. Anyone have any insight about this?

That's the upper limit for showdowns because of some logarthmic limitation in the program. At least that's what someone who knows what a logarithm is told me. Wagers top out at a cool billion, but I think that was limited a couple years ago, dunno why.

Wagers were limited by a vote of those over 1 billion or so making it fairer for new folk to catch old folk.

I think it was Kaufman who posted some time ago explaining the computer-reason for the limitation on both wagers and showdowns. Didn't understand it then either, so I sure can't explain it.

Ah, those Welshmen!

You probably still have the first penny you earned, Alan.

The limit on wagers is artificial -- imposed by Justin some time back.

The limit on Showdowns is computer-based; without getting into the tech talk, it's a consequence of the way the relevant numbers are stored.

I have 147 I would just give you if I could. I'll never use the stinking things. The last showdown challenge I did against someone was on 11/17/07 and I lost. The one I did before that was on 10/19/06 and that in a sting of 8 that I did in about a months time...I only won 2 of those. So I have given up on staging showdowns....I honestly hate to even respond to them and will wait until the last day, and sometimes the last few minutes before they expire, to do anything about them because I dislike them so much. If Justin can figure out a way to transfer showdown tokens then I'd gladly give them away.

Oh, my

My last two showdowns.

First against a lady from India. Sure enough the enough was about an obscure Asian word. -72000 points

Today against a young Australian. Sure enough a question about British royalty.

Go figure.
