Default [Dixonary] Round 3222 INTERBASTATION Results

The dictionary definition of INTERBASTATION was "[Obsolete] Quilting". I
was alarmed when the first two fake defs I received were sewing related.
Johnny B's even had the word quilting in it, so I combined his def with the
real one. Luckily no other sewing defs appeared, so I continued with the
word. Three players voted for the real def, giving me a D3. One of those
was Johnny, but he gets no credit for voting for his own.

Mike Shefler takes the next deal with an unnatural 6, leaving Nancy
Shepherdson as the real winner with a natural 5.

My scoring spreadsheet was a bit put out by the combined def, so if you
spot any errors please speak up.

Over to you, Mike.
