* The Adony Score is calculated by counting the number of games parties at which a game was played without considering how MANY times in a day that game was played. This eliminates from considerations game frenzies where a particular game is played many, many times in a single day. ¥ The current score is called the Mike Score which is calculated by weighting each game by a standard length value (the supposed "standard time" it takes to play the game). Instead of each game you lose counting for one, it counts for this length. The idea is that losing long games is harder than losing short games. ¥¥ The Dave Score is the 10 minus the number of times we had played this game up to the beginning of the year (with games that have been played more than 9 times assigned a value of 1). Note that this number won't change during the year no matter how many times a game is played. A loss is then weighted by that factor instead of the normal 1. This means that you can score much higher if you play games we don't play much (and, of course, lose) -- the game less traveled score. ¥¥¥ The Jeff Score is a combination of the Dave and Mike scores: we simply multiply them together.
