Re: Riddle me this.
 
Top fine = Luck.


Top anything = Luck

If there was no luck involved, the same person would win -- everytime.

But that's not what happens, and in any given competition there are 10 or people with enough skill to win it, one person just happens to have the pieces fall "just right", etc.

In someways, the competition in question was a lot harder, because you had to finesse it. You had puzzle well enough to get a fine, but not so good that it tips over to "good". Kinda like needing a double 2 in darts for the win, instead of a triple 20.

It makes for an "interesting competition"

That being said, for the first one awarded -- kinda tacky.
