A very close game of Catchup.

An 8-deep tie in Catchup.

If you haven’t heard of Nick Bentley‘s game Catchup, go now. Just go. Read the rules, play the game, love it.

On his blog, Nick recently asked about the closest possible score in Catchup. Since Nick already talked about why the game cannot end in a tie, it doesn’t make sense to talk about a tied game, but one can talk about having the first few groups being tied. In his post on close games, Nick gave an example with the first seven groups tied. We’ve come up with an example where the first eight groups are tied.

We’d like to thank Nick Bentley for making such a lovely game. Hopefully we’ll have more to say about it later.
