katchphrase: Attached is the original blueprint of our Wordydomination hatched to plan on 30 September 2017 @ 2:45 pm.
Playing Coop is both easy and hard. Easy because you don't have to beg for games in the Wordy room. Hard because you have to learn to work together with your partner for 3 months; take out the "me" and become "us" and "ours".
What Trail and I have achieved this season is not just teamwork but synergy. We both had recognised and worked through each others strengths and weaknesses. Trail with his high scoring words is lethal; when he is on that mindzone I content myself with getting the x, z, j, q out of the way so he can maneuver his way to find us the words that racks up the points. It doesn't hurt that he knows so much medical and scientific words.
I bring in the speed. My boggling skills acquired through years of playing the 3-minute game come to the fore when we need a lot of points in a short time like when we did a one-day race against pdb and nickynin with them being 10,000 points ahead with 3 hours to go.
I also bring in the patience and the calm (I think).
Trail, aside from his genius, brings in the entertainment.
Getting through a season in Coop is not just a test of skills but also of will and spirit. It almost broke ours when we woke up on the 2nd day and jimmyjim and phillyboy had left us with an 80,000 points margin. But that was also the day we vowed never to be outraced ever again. You can both blame them for setting the momentum of the season. I am sorry to hear that illness had prevented them from continuing with the season. It would have been such a race!
Congratulations to all who broke through and made it to the board. It is not an easy feat.
We can see a few that seem to already eye the next season's leaderboard, good luck!

katchphrase: As if the challenge to get to 5 million wasn't enough, we added an extra challenge of landing at exactly the right spot. Thank you for, first, indulging that crazy idea of landing exactly at 5 million and second, for telling me last night that we can do it when I gave up on the idea, and third, for directing our moves earlier so we could end exactly where we planned to. You are a great partner.
Back at you
Love you back. xoxo
katchphrase: The Man in the Arena
- an excerpt from a speech by US President T Roosevelt
It is not the critic that counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and come short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

I thought I was screenshot queen but it looks like I only have 26 usable data in the 72 days since we started this challenge. It is still good to look at how far we have come and how this journey is made more meaningful having shared it with Trailblazen.
