Default [Dixonary] Rnd 3059 CHATOYANT - The Results

Your dealer obviously performed poorly in word selection this time since the landslide winner for this round was the American Heritage Dictionary with 8 votes for the true definiitiion of "Having a changeable luster", over 50% of the total. However, as the AHD is excused from dealing by the Rules, Mike Shefler whose unnatural 5 earns him the dealer's laurel. Debbie Embler holds the honored second place position with unnatural 4.
Five players were tied for third position with 3 points each.
Cory still refuses to perform the drudgery of scoring so any errors that crept in below are the fault of your dealer who begs pardon.
