OK, so that's the first three rounds down, with another three left to go. Here are the official third-round results:

kittens def wasp_f15ting (15-13)
Spoon of Ploff def idunnosomename (21-2)
hedgehog90 def Al The Funkee Homosapien (19-6)
Tension Knob def BlodwynPig (19-2)
Miles def Poirots BigGarlickyCorpse (16-7)
Pearly-Dewdrops Drops def alan nagsworth (17-7)
Cerys def QDRPHNC (19-6)
Crabwalk def Johnny Yesno (20-4)

So that leaves us our eight quarter-finalists:

Pearly-Dewdrops Drops
Spoon of Ploff
Tension Knob

Top tier wrongers all. Expecting some EPIC matches from here on out.

Anyway, take a breather tonight, and I'll post the draw in this thread tomorrow (Saturday) at midday BST.


A reminder of the rules:

Quote1. Each match will consist of two shots per player, except the final in which there are three shots per player.

2. The player with the opening shot (i.e. the server) can put what they want in their picture.  But all subsequent pictures (i.e the return) must contain, either visually or conceptually, an element of the previous picture.

3. The pictures will be 800 x 600, or 600 x 800 pixels in size, and must be still images.

4. Voting will take place by posting the name of your favourite in the game thread immediately after play has ended (i.e. when the 4th picture of each match has been posted).  The voting will last for 48 hours. In the event of a tie after the voting period has passed, the voting time will be extended by 12 hours, and if after that there is no winner, the next player to get a vote will win the tie.

5. Common sense prevails in image choice.

6. Pictures can be uploaded to places like imgur for those who have no webspace, but the picture must be displayed in the game thread.

7. In some cases it is necessary for one or more high-scoring losers to progress to the next round. High-scoring losers are simply those who get the most votes out of all the losing players in the round. If it comes down to two players who have the same number of votes, the player who lost by the smaller margin will progress as the high-scoring loser.

And a reminder of time permitted:  You have 72 hours to post an image from when the round starts or from when the last shot has been posted. Keep a look out on your game for when your opponent posts their shot, as it's from that time that the 72 hours start.

And here's your draw:

Tie 1: Tension Knob vs Cerys
Tie 2: hedgehog90 vs Spoon of Ploff
Tie 3: Crabwalk vs Pearly-Dewdrops Drops
Tie 4: kittens vs Miles

Those named first have until midday Tuesday BST to prepare and post their serves. Good luck!

Spoon of Ploff

I might need more time to post my serve, I'm not feeling very well.


I'm fine with that.  Hope you're feeling better soon.

Tension Knob

thanks for your patience C and SM, I'll definitely have something up some time tomorrow, I've been working on it this evening.


They've all been working on it by the time, etc.


With all the matches done and voting due to conclude early tomorrow evening, I'll aim to post the draw for the semis around 8pm BST tomorrow.
