DingDingDingDingDing!

We have a winner already! And a runner-up!

Congratulations to schroberts, who completed Crossword LF-1 first, with dazzling speed and accuracy!
schroberts wins 5 Survivor forum points! (1 for being first to answer the puzzle, and 4 as the first winner in Luxtoberfest 9...)
Nice start to the festivities, Ms. Schrobaire. :)

A big huzzah goes out to engie too, the oh-so-close runner up! Not to worry, Texan, we all slow down as we get older. :P


And of course, both our charming winners also take home pie.

Yummy Lux Sunday Brunch Pie. Is there bacon, you ask? Would it be Lux Sunday Brunch Pie without bacon?

Rhye wonders how fair it is to be assigning points to people who have not been drafted yet...

I completed the puzzle hours ago. (At least I think I have the right answers.) I didn't submit it because I didn't think it was an "official event" that would give points to people. I'm not trying to brag--I think anyone who tried to solve the puzzle could do so easily and quickly.

I'm not upset, and I don't challenge the accomplishment of Schroberts or Engie, but I wish it had been made clear that this was a sanctioned event that could have some effect on Luxtoberfest.

I guess I will know for next time.

This crossword was posted in the official Luxtoberfest forum, no? And I was pretty clear in the Survivor thread that all Luxtoberfest forum games would be included in the overall meta-tourney, no? There shouldn't have been any confusion. I would suggest you submit your final crossword answers asap. Who knows? Maybe TSK will give you some points for being second on the same day as Schroberts?

Sorry, Millty.

The crosswords were in the Luxtoberfest Forum, which I thought would make it clear they were an official event. (Only mods and official game hosts are able to start threads there.) Nonetheless, Survivor points may be issued by the host for a number of reasons (instances of sportsmanship, for example), not just "official" events. And Schroberts was incredibly quick with her answers.

If we have such a close race that these five points make the difference between two teams, we're in for quite a show!

Ok. Fully my bad then. I withdraw my appeal.

Congrats to Schroberts and Engie.

I will still submit my answers, just for laughs.

No, not fully your bad, just a misunderstanding. No hard feelings, I hope. And if you choose to submit your answers, I promise to laugh.

Especially if you missed 12 Across.

Oops, sorry. 5 down should read "With 15 across... " (fixed). I know the clues are a bit fuzzy. I'll try to clean them up when I get home.

DingDingDingDingDing!

We have our winners! It's getting tough to stump you lot. Thanks everyone for playing.

4 Survivor points to the a-maze-ing n00less cluebie. That's 3 points for his brilliantly speedy first correct answer, plus 1 point for solving the bonus clue!
2 Survivor points to the wonderful WhirlPlaid, for second place.
1 Survivor points to the marvelous Milltycoon, for third place.

This calls for more PIE...

Aww... okay. You appear to have caught me in a generous mood. But if I were an Inglorious Asshat, I'd ... never mind. :smt077


2 Survivor points for engie, for second place on the Pre-Luxtoberfest crossword.
2 Survivor points for Milltycoon, one for third place and one for his patience,
