    I actually remember when this score was entered, just not by whom.

    The strategy itself is pretty simple, a derivative of titles such as "Plaque Attack" and "Cheeky Mouse".

    Todd, and another gamer I know from the Funspot area, Michael Sao Pedro, are awesome at this skillset, so I have no doubt that he can score this high. Its a matter of the score being a typo, only no way to know which way it goes +/- to the nearest 5 points.

    I'm perfectly comfortable with rounding his score down to the next 5-point mark and being done with it. This is one score where the do-ability of it is not in question...to me, anyway...it's just a simple clerical error. We have far more important matters to deal with here...a simple score correction is all that is needed.
