      As you can see, a lot of people thought it was the Beatles. So a reminder is in order :) - if you got the correct answer off the bat, I will tell you so you don't guess in the final list. And the correct answer appears only once in the list, so if you see the same answer more than once, you can strike them off right away.

      I missed a couple of our regular player's answers - are you guys not seeing when the thread is updated to show the Initial List? I change the title and everything....

      BigBlue guessed 1.
      Zhaneel guessed 2.
      Apollo, sageridder, and TomB guessed 10.

      Scores:

      sageridder: 12 (8 + 1 for initial, 1 for final, and 2 for correct answer)
      TomB: 12 (8 + 1 for initial, 1 for final, 2 for correct)

      Apollo: 10 (6 + 1 for initial, 1 for final, and 2 for correct)
      Zhaneel: 9 (7 + 1 for initial, 1 for final)
      BigBlue: 8 (6 + 1 for initial, 1 for final)
      EricBess: 7 (5 + 1 for initial, 1 for other person's guess)
      Nightstalkers: 4 (2 + 1 for initial, 1 for other person's guess)
      train: 4 (3 + 1 for initial)
      Melkor: 1 (1 for initial)

    Hmmm... I've missed it a couple of times, Spidey. I'm not sure why. Perhaps I just happen to be online when you make the update so when I come back, it doesn't show as having any new posts. I'm really not sure.

    Well, if your browser only refreshes the screen once in a while, that could happen... before you log off, refresh the main forum screen one more time to see if any posts came in while you were on...

    I usually update them in the morning though around 7:00 AM EST and I don't usually see you on then...

    Edited the above scores as Zhaneel did give me a final answer and out of the four Beatles answers, chose Nightstalkers. So she and he got another point each...
