Well, my human friends  we have come to the last war of the 9th Tour of Duty.
No one can say this is not a long war fought by dedicated, patriotic fighters!
I salute you my human friends.

So what happened in June? Who were the victors?

The Challenge
The USA fielded 16 magnificent heroes & heroines, who snatched 6997 pts = 50.2% of the spoils of war.
The UK & Co fielded 13 (unlucky for some) fabulous warriors, grabbed 6946 pts = 49.8%
Wow.. that was close. A nose! A hairsbreadth! The width of a feathered arrow! Congratulations to my American buddies. You snatched victory!
The USA won the Challenge battle by 0.4%.

The Survivor
The USA sent in 8 human missiles, grabbed 1848 pts = 39.8%
The UK & Co sent in 13 (not unlucky for some) bigger, better, faster human missiles, won 2792 pts = 60.2%
A moments silence and empathic regret ... whilst we all sombrely contemplate the havoc and slaughter. USA, my beaten up friends, you were thrashed on that one.
The UK & Co won the June Survivor battle by ..... a lot.

Two battles = one monthly war.
The UK & Co = 55%
The USA = 45%

A smashing victory to the woadwearers ... yet, a noble defeat for the USA who managed to break the stranglehold of UK supremacy by winning the Challenge but it was not enough ... and sadly met their nemesis on the Survivor.
Take heart!
The 10th Tour of Duty is set to begin.
And I'm honoured, pleased and rather chuffed to brag that some of you have fought in all of them. Thank you.
Don your flak jackets, gird your loins and bravely wade into the fray again for world domination is not written in stone until one side surrenders.
And me? As a practising pacifist I don't wear combat gear, just a rather snappy tuxedo. I shall amble over to the smorgasbord and partake of the mouthwatering goodies on offer, with my medical bag of bandages and splints tightly gripped in my flipper.

See you there my friends .... I shall cheer you on!

Greetings absent human friends.
Well .. not absent anymore now the glitch has been fixed.
There is a human saying that things come in threes.
So true! The human race is very wise.
First , my broadband went down on my remote ice floe HQ headquarters. My router was accordingly given an honourable burial .. and my new ally is called Fibre Optic. Isn't it quick!
Next, my flags got filched.
Finally .. it was time to fix the third glitch. My access to my Admin panel.
and now, after all that I had a little down and a glass of shandy .. before scampering back to the two battles to see how my heroic warriors and fabulous patriotic quizzers were doing in their eternal war of attrition for global supremacy.

As we all know ... the April war was never won, or lost, come to that. We will never know. Spooky that, isn't it.
But ..... war resumes.

The May Challenge.
The USA fielded 16 storm troopers who nabbed 7387 points = 47.2% of the spoils of war.
The UK & Co fielded 11 wondrous heroes who snatched 8277 pts = 52.8% of the bigger, better spoils of war.
The UK & Co won  the May Challenge by a convincing 5.6%
Hip hip hooray to the UK (I'm waving my flippers here)

The Survivor
The USA sent in 8 braves, won 1947 enemy scalps = 43.2%
The UK & Co woadwearers, won 2565 trophies of war = 56.8%
The UK & Co won the May Survivor by a cracking 13.6%

But the two battles make for one ferociously fought war.
Final Result .. for May
The USA = 45.2%
The UK & Co =54.8%

Victory to the UK & Co .... again!
Time to run the victor's flag up the pole ... time to commiserate with the non-victor's who will never ever surrender!
And hey .. I've missed you. It's nice to be back.

Pengy congratulates you and will now hotfoot it over to hoist the Union Jack. I expect some nibbles off the smorgasbord for performing this selfless duty.
But this is the second month the fighting in the muddy trenches has been close ... a hairs breadth .. just over 1 measly percent between victory and defeat.
What will April have in store for my wonderful and fabulous human fighters as you enter the gladiatorial arena once again.

Greetings human friends ..
I've rattled my abacus and this is nailbiting stuff! Wriggle to the edge of your seats and read on.

The Challenge

The Uk & Co fielded 13 woad wearers, snatched 5860 pts = 48% of the crumbs.
The USA won the February Challenge by a 4% lead! Well done my American buddies ..you showed them you're a force to be reckoned with!

With the opposing armies winning one battle each who was the victor?
Two battles make for one monthly War.
This is close ... closer than it's been for ages .. closer than my feeble brain can calculate offhand. After some vigorous rattling of my abacus.
Final stats:
USA = 49.75%
UK & Co = 50.25%

The UK & Co won the February War by a measly, meagre 0.5%.
Wow. A mere smidgin.
Come on USA .. you're coming back! I shall be cheering you along and waving my flippers at you as you take on the Great UK & Co once again. Everyone pile into the fray!
