I hear you, Denise. I *had* all the points, but an ISP meltdown and scheduling snafus on my part made me 8 minutes late for solving November 20th's puzzle - you know, the one where Aaron was giving out FOUR Tanga points because he was feeling guilty.

sigh...

It's still tough accepting that "hole" in my "perfect" world....

And I'll add my voice to the Eternal Choir: Let us use the Tanga points for something!

Eh. I've already missed out on two due to Gencon Socal so missing more isn't a huge hardship. Too bad it's sunday really. I've got plans that will suck up at least 7 hours.

I missed a couple because of BGG.Con and because my admins at work were nice enough to disable my laptop this last weekend so I couldn't use it in the hotel room.

I have solved them all, though.

I wonder if they'd take submitted puzzles?

Dammit, my average solve time is 12 hours.
That means I'll only complete 2 of the puzzles!

Aldie,

When will you be extending the adblock feature I pay for to filter out threads like this?

Pony up some more cash for the threadblock feature. I figure if you toss in a few hundred a month, someone will code it for you.

New puzzlethon rules
We changed the rules for the puzzlethon. We had intended for the puzzles to expire after an hour but we have been convinced that it is better to allow answer submissions for all of the puzzles for the whole 24 hour period.

Aaron.

So that is 24 hours for the first puzzle and declining to just 1 hour for the last puzzle correct?

So let's start predicting what CyberMonday is. I predict they start selling DIY borg implants. I'm going to get the Age of Steam brainchip(tm).

Apparently there will be a new item for sale every hour too...so if you see notice of a game for sale on Tanga in the next 24 hours you won't have long to respond to it.

Me...I'm hoping for a Wii. Probably not, but you never know.

Oh man, a Wii sale would rock. I suppose I'll have to be checking in every hour while I'm at work tomorrow.

According to the Tanga site, it looks like new items come up when the old ones sell out. Considering that they started off with a whopping $12 discount on an iPOD shuffle, it could be a while. [Note: the iPOD's are nice, but the shuffle is really for tweeners who just want to get their feet wet with this whole mp3 thing, I don't see it as an impulse buy from savvy web consumers looking for a good deal - mostly on boardgames]

And looking at Tanga's own comments page, most people just want this item to go away so we can get to something good.

Hmm...I misread that. Hopefully they don't have too many ipods

I see the binoculars are back . . .

It might be a while before those all move.
