      Game 6 of 13 April 2008:

      FelixK gamely pointed out that I'd forgotten that he ended up as
      junk, so 0 pts rather than 1 pt. So, revised corrected result and
      table:

      AndrewM......Won, Survived,Flag planted...6 pts
      StaniaM......Won, Survived, MVP...........6 pts
      JosepA.......Won, Survived................5 pts

      BobR.........Lost, Survived...............1 pt
      StuartF......Lost, Survived...............1 pt
      FelixK.......Lost, Junked by board-laser..0 pt

      So the updated league table looks as below: AndrewM re-regains
      topspot from StuartF; JosepA regains third spot from BobR. StaniaM
      enters the league in 4th place ... thus demonstrating that the
      formula allows a new player to shoot up into contention, but probably
      not to take topspot in one go.

      The league formula makes it nicely volatile. E.g if AllanM, lying
      16th, played and scored 6 points as Stania just did, his rating would
      go up from 0.333 to 2.333, raising him to 10th, perhaps 8th if some
      others lost and slipped down; do it a second time, and he'd rise to
      3.250 and probably 3rd spot ...

      For those who are interested in such things, the formula is:
      cumulated points divided by games played+1. If a tie, league-position
      goes to the most recent having a result.

      MVP is fairly new. Most Valuable Player. It is an extra point for the
      player who inflicts most damage on the opposition, minus damage
      inflicted on friendlies.
