Default [Dixonary] Round 3211 SUBLITION Results

I thought your fake defs for SUBLITION were really good, but there was no
hiding place for the dealer. Voters were drawn to the real def - number 8,
the ground colour - like moths to a flame, leaving me with a D7. Two
players tied for first place, having gained 4 votes as well as guessing the
real def. Of those two, Paul Keating is marginally ahead in the rolling
scores, so he takes the next deal, leaving Johnny Barrs as the real winner.

Over to you, Paul.

Default [Dixonary] Round 3211 SUBLITION Results

For some reason, my spreadsheet dropped the asterisk from Shani Naylor's
score in the summary table. It was shown correctly as 3* in the list.
