    Yes, you're correct, I shouldn't think I can rely on my memory without checking. :embarrassed:

    Sorry Sarah, you will have to choose between Krystle and Karen for the first match and between Cliff and Valene for the second match (without choosing 2 Knots Landing characters) or I won't be able to count your vote.

    If I don't see Sue Ellen's name I get lost for about 10 minutes.

    Why is it that my choice not to vote for Krystle is being questioned but when @Victoriafan3 and @Michael Torrance chose not to vote for Gary in the last round nobody said anything?

    To me that is the same thing.

    I only checked to see that your choices weren't from the same soap so I didn't realise you were voting for 2 rivals in the same match!

    It is, maybe I haven't read all the posts.

    The reason behind the 1-vote-per-soap was to avoid one or two soaps dominating the game.
    But when you have the option to ignore the other soaps then that rule is rendered null and void.

    Soap fans aren't logical nor consistent, just like the plotlines in the shows that we love.

    Well to me it's not about the soaps the characters represents since I love Dynasty too. It's about the characters. I prefer Karen over Krystle so I chose not to vote. However if it had been a choice between Alexis, who was my favorite Dynasty character, I would have picked her over Karen. So it's about who is up against who.

    Heck I almost picked Fallon over Karen in the first round but after giving it some thought I realized that I loved Karen more.

    The general rule @Karin Schill is - always pick your favourite, no matter who it is, unless Sue Ellen is in there and then always... always pick Sue Ellen. :D

    I get that, but if you're "forced" (per Angela's rule) to choose Krystle because you had voted for Valene, then that's what makes the game unpredictable.
    If it was more important not to vote for Krystle then you should have picked Karen & Cliff.

    It's all about difficult choices:D

    Although the preference is for participants to vote in both matches, no one is "forced" to and an abstention is absolutely fine.

    However, I agree with @Willie Oleson saying that when characters from the same soap appear in both matches and you have chose who vote for across both matches, people will vote in unexpected ways which can lead to surprise results and makes the game more enjoyable. For example, in normal circumstances there are few characters that I would vote for over Lance Cumson and Jock Ewing never would have been one of them but that's what I did because I wanted to vote for Richard in the other match. I think making those decisions adds to the fun of the game.

    Ultimately, it's just a game and the results don't mean a great deal beyond the preferences of around 18 forum members. So play the game anyway you like, as long as you remain within the rules, and just enjoy it.

    Nobody? Or @Willie Oleson ? I think I understand why he didn't say anything when I did it. We disagree on so many things, he has to choose his battles and focus on the big things only. :floor:

    1. Krystle - loved her ding dongs with Alexis. The lily pond cat fight when Blake had to referee was pure Dynasty.
    2. Cliff - an important part of Dallas, in my opinion. Valene was great in KL but I gotta vote Cliff.

    Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm ....

    Krystle at her best was sublime, but Karen was probably more consistently good value. So KAREN.

    Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm ...

    Val v Cliff: both wonderfully neurotic, unpredictable characters who both arguably ran out of steam towards the end of their original runs. And if it were just about the original series, Val would have the edge, but New DALLAS Cliff ("I did not kill JR!") swings it. So CLIFF.
