(For those who don't want to read the whole thing) Top of the scoreboard: Iron Maid remains on top with 30 points, but cwinslow with 26 and Benga with 25 are definitely moving up there!
Bottom of the scoreboard: Four more player have been eliminated in addition to the two that were eliminated earlier. Prince Jazbo, traffic133, and crazycolin have managed to deadbeat themselves into the negatives. DaveH assassinate the wrong target and knocked himself down to -2. We therefore have 98 active players. Whydelilah, however, will not be invited this week, because he seems to be absent from CC for the last week. At present he still has a positive score in this tournament and is not eliminated, but that could change if he deadbeats one of his remaining active games. Anyway, for now I'm not inviting him, but it is without prejudice and he can return if he reappears. There will therefore be 97 invitations this week: 15 six-player games and 1 seven-player.
Marat, friend of Robespierre, Jacobin deputy to the Convention, and editor-in-chief of L'Ami du Peuple, was a fiery orator; he was also a violent man, quick to take offense. Some saw him as an intransigent patriot; for others he was merely a hateful demagogue On July 13, 1793, a young Royalist from Caen, Charlotte Corday, managed, by a clever subterfuge, to gain entry into his apartment. When Marat agreed to receive her, she stabbed him in his bathtub, where he was accustomed to sit hour after hour treating the disfiguring skin disease from which he suffered.
David, Marat's colleague in the Convention, had visited him only the day before the murder, and he recalled the setting of the room vividlly, the tub, the sheet, the green rug, the wooden packing case, and above all, the pen of the journalist. He saw in Marat a model of antique "virtue." The day after the murder, David was invited by the Convention to make arrangements for the funeral ceremony, and to paint Marat's portrait. He accepted with enthusiasm, but the decomposed state of the body made a true-to-life representation of the victim impossible. This circumstance, coupled with David's own emotional state, resulted in the creation of this idealized image.
Week 7 games have been created and invitations sent out.
Sent out map 8 invitations. I was rather tired so there were a couple of hiccups along the way, but everything should now be correct except one. There was an invite that should have gone to "Breal" which instead went to "Brea" -- luckily Brea is not likely to accept it and it should expire normally tonight.
Two bullets fired on a Sarajevo street on a sunny June morning in 1914 set in motion a series of events that shaped the world we live in today. World War One, World War Two, the Cold War and its conclusion all trace their origins to the gunshots that interrupted that summer day.

I made a horrible mistake. I assasinated the wrong objekt in Game 12247653. Sorry and I understand if this gives me a warning or elimination of myself. Even though it isnt a defence to use, I must say I play alot of Terminator so that is why I made this mistake. Sorry again.
EDIT: Read the rules. - 7 points for me. That is a good uphill now.
This is the Week 10 update. For those who are wondering, that means we are launching the 10th map. There were four weeks where I didn't have time to launch a map, so in actually chronological time this would be called Week 14.
