Is the scoring actually being changed or is that an artifact of an earlier page not yet changed? I'm extremely surprised to see draw-based pop up again if it's real.

Despite the weird scoring there's a 95% chance of a Nanook sighting!

Edit: life interferes, Nanook will no longer be present. But you should still go!

Kim likes SoS scoring. But Kim is not in charge, she's just the social messenger. :)
