Default [Dixonary] Round 2928 RESULTS - [ ASTROBLEME ]

Well, here at the finish time, only had 8 voters ... my delayed start
possibly made for some oddness there....

I rarely combine defs, but the next dealer's bluff was contained in

So Daniel Widdis and Dictionary.com are the next joint-dealers. (wink)
Real Winnah laurels for Efrem Mallach & Tim Bourne at 3 natch points each.

Sorry for your win, Daniel!
