Unfortunately a couple members are having latency issues so we yeah, still waiting.  I may end up with some unexpected free time this evening.

Before I started playing video/computer games, I played card games all the time.  :D

So, this is over now and I'm voting for @rkelly17.  I think there are only two of us competing, so he must be voting for me.  Are we co-winners, or is someone else voting?   ;D

Indeed, I am voting for @slink.

While we are at it, how about a challenge that looks for the most aesthetically pleasing settlement. I've been trying out the flat map mod and when you put it  on the flattest setting it gives a huge canvas for avenues, plazas, and all sorts of things.

I was finally able to finish reading both blogs. I do not know how I can decide between the two; they are both excellent! I particularly enjoy the whimsy and the twist that @slink's story took at the end. And I enjoyed the history and attention to detail of @rkelly17's story.

A very difficult choice! Since I have to chose one though, I will chose @rkelly17's. I feel like both should win though!

After reading through both for the fourth time, although I love the surprise ending of @slink 's story, I have to go with @rkelly17, only because I am forced to make a choice. I really enjoyed both.

Looks like it's too close to call from two of our best players!  Thank you for playing and giving us great stories to go along with a great game. 

@slink ties again and @rkelly17 notches another win in his Banished stick he uses to beat his opponents with.

Congrats to both of you. Thank you again!

I am flattered to tie with a professional writer.  :)  My writing experience as a professional scientist was in writing progress reports, year-end reports, and project-end summary reports.  My career as a scientist consisted of collecting my own data, and then presenting theories and predictions based on the data.  The only difference between science and science-fiction is the degree of imagination used in the theories.  ;D  Then there is faith, in which the practitioners invent their own data, as well.  Climate science tends toward this latter category, in my opinion.  ::)
