*Fractional games are counted only when a player leaves early.
 Because QMs often do not record it when a player fills an
 initially empty seat, players who do this are counted as
 having played from the start of the game.

Round 6

Question 4 - We said "This poisonous plant or weed is actually very
  pretty, with purple and yellow flowers and bright red berries.  It is
  related to the tomato."  Selwyn of Sam's Spades said the mandrake.
  As it turns out, the name "mandrake" may refer to two different plants.
  The "true" mandrake, the one supposed to have magical properties, is
  Mandragora officinarum; this more or less fits our description, but the
  round was about "wildflowers of Ontario" and this is an Old World plant,
  found in Europe and Africa.  The other mandrake is Podophyllum peltatum,
  also called the mayapple or May apple.  This one is found in Ontario but
  does not fit our descrition, although some parts of it are poisonous.
  It has greenish-white flowers and yellowish edible fruit, and is not
  related to the tomato.  Protest denied.

Round 10

Question B2 - According to the QM, Ralph of the Misplaced Modifiers
  "pointed to his xiphoid process and moved slightly upward".  This
  description doesn't really tell where on his body he actually
  pointed, but from subsequent conversation it seems to have been
  about right.  The xiphoid process is indeed at the bottom of the
  sternum, as indicated on the diagram, so this is close enough.
  Protest accepted; steal canceled for Hal of Cellar Rats.

Question D1 - We asked for a Toronto team other than the Argonauts
  that had won the Grey Cup.  Stephan of Reach for the Tap said Parkdale.
  Parkdale lost to U of T in the inaugural 1909 game, lost to the Hamilton
  Tigers in 1913, and never was in the Grey Cup again.  Protest denied.
