Thanks to all pirates, captains, and The Game Crew for a great event. Every team finished The Game. Bravo!

PICTURES can be found here at the moment. We may add more pictures and make a real picture page later.

Notes:
-Hint #4 for Message in a Bottle was worth 20 minutes. Hint #4 on Pirate Flags was worth 15 minutes.
-Thanks for your patience waiting at the Fountain and Cannon Green.
-Sincere apologies to A Most Ingenious Paradox. Waiting time was not figured out before the awards ceremony, so Bluebeard's Ballers were mistakenly awarded Third Place. They chose the prize of the "Dead Man's Chest" DVD, so maybe you can all get together for a screening.
-Click here for a graph of ranking during the game for any crew that broke the top 5 (note A Most Ingenious Paradox's sprint to the finish). Info for the Fountain, Jack's Game, and Key #3 are combined due to a lost time sheet (ol' Jack be hittin' the rum).

Trivia:
-Easiest Clue: Wanted Posters. Average Time: 15 min. Average Hints: 0 min.
-Hardest Clue: Pirate Flags. Average Time: 92 min. Average Hints: 30 min.
-Most Time Consuming Construction: Fountain Rum Crates
-Inspiration for The Keys: A microwave turntable
-Charlestown, a Carribean city mentioned in the Message in a Bottle, was a center of piracy in the 17th century. This is where Black Smoke James built his 3 keys in our story (and therefore, where the players would be forced to use the keys). It was burned to the ground in 1684, then rebuilt and renamed in 1695. It is now the capital of the Bahamas. So, Princetonians, what is the new name of this city?
