Champion of the 3rd Flush game

Please take a look at "The list of points for each phrase". The phrase (word this time) with the most points, "football", got the sympathy of 58 participants.

The four most often selected words were football, baseball, soccer, and ball. But no one choose these 4 words perfectly. 8 participants chose the 5th most selected word "basketball" instead of "ball" and so all got the highest score, 154. CONGRATULATIONS!

We drew lots, and "Patrickov" came out tops. CONGRATULATIONS! You got drawn first and you are the winner.

We will send the first prize, a nikoli.com original T-shirt, to "Patrickov" so let us know what size you want. "Bosuonparedo, monkeyfish, achan1058, JacquiO, VulpesX, aaarizpe, BryanC" were drawn second and you win a copy of Penpa 2011 by Nikoli. Winners, please tell us your name and address, with post code, and we will get it off.

Results for all participants

This list has the points for all the participants. Remember the question was: "What do you imagine when you hear "Sports"? Please tell us four phrases that popped into your head.".

Rules for the word game "Flush".

Please answer the question with four phrases that popped into your head. The number of players who write us the same phrase becomes the points you get for a phrase. The sum of the points for your four phrases becomes your score. The player with the highest score becomes the winner.

We will consider capital and small letters the same, but singulars and plurals, spaces, or other little differences are judged as different. So "Blue bird" and "blue bird" are the same, but "Blue bird," "Blue birds," and "Bluebird" are all different.
