Mastermid & Pyramind Results!

It’s a big day for results as two champions were crowned. A number of you were on hand to witness one of them, so we’ll lead with the bigger story after the break. Who is your new Cutthroat Junction Champ? 

Take it away, Kelly…

In other Cutthroat Junction news, we had the a Mastermind best two out of three match for the CJ Championship. Mike Rivet won the title this way last month, so naturally, Melissa helped him pick it again for their match.

Match One
Green, Orange, Red, Red

Mike: 4 guesses
Melissa: 5 guesses

Match Two
Purple, Blue, Red, Blue

Mike: 5 guesses
Melissa: 6+ guesses

Melissa didn’t finish the second one, but declared herself retiring in shame when I told her it was over, and for the first time, the champion defends his gold. Look at li’l Rivet, becoming a dynasty! Who’s next for our champion? Keep your eyes on Musical Chairs, challengers.


Congrats, Michael! In the other other news, we wrapped up Cutthroat Points Pyramid with a live Winner’s Circle for both the winners and losers brackets. I had 7-8 windows open, a bi-polar timer running, and a peanut gallery full of wisenheimers.

In our loser’s bracket it was very close. I think. I set the timer to count down from 4:00 and it rolled past the 1:00 mark with the round still going for Melissa. When I stopped the timer, however, it read 2:78. WTF? Annette came in with a time of 3:35 to solve. So sticking with the true cutthroat nature of this place, what do we do? Declare a badass mutha effin tie, that’s what! Melissa likely edged Annette by a little, though Annette was entering her answers one tap at a time on her Kindle. So I guess a draw works for me.

In the winner’s bracket there were no timer malfunctions. One player solved the board before the regulation time was over, clocking at 1:53. The Cutthroat Points Pyramid champ is…

BEAU [redacted]!

Congrats. His enthusiasm for the game never wavered from the day he signed up. I still remember his passionate response when asked for the second time if he’d like to play: “Ugh, sure.”

Thank you everyone for playing and I hope you had fun. The only things that sucks about being on this side is not being able to play. If you have any suggestions for how the game should have been different, please let me know. I’ll be back with a different game before the month is up.

Final CJ Points
Beau 25, Margaret 20, Brooks 20, Kelly 15, Novak 10, Bret 10, Will 10, Gilman 10, Annette 8, Melissa 8, Michael 7, Pope 7…and everyone else 5.
