I think 40. This, (unless somebody ninjas me) is post 55. There is the OP, dupes from needscoffee and Springtime for Spacers and 12 other non participating posts, (including this one).

Top 10 is a lot better than I usually do in these.

I think the key to winning is the questions where the #1 is only about half the players. Sure, the conchs are worth a lot of points, but most of your competitors will also get those points.

I have accidentally posted twice to this thread, second one is at 49. When I posted this one the board timed out and I assumed it hadn't posted. naturally this first one is the one that should stand. Only one change, I said plaster for 8 the second time.
