New, 2 comments

Have you had a chance to play Ichthyomancy, the Fish Stripes prediction game for the Miami Marlins? If not, there is still a chance to jump in for the second half and join in on the fun! Check out the full rules of the game here and join us everyday as we predict the attendance, player of the game, and an extra Above and Beyond pick and pick up points. At the end of the year, we will be awarding prizes for second half and overall season winners! Start playing today!

Another week of Ichthyomancy is in the books, and the heavyweights of the game continue to duke it out one on one for the crown of top Ichthyomancer on Fish Stripes. The two leaders are beginning to pull away from the rest of the pack, but our challengers at third place in the overall season and second half games are still within striking distance.

The big movement this week was at the top of the leaderboard. Jigokusabre maintains the Ichthyomancy lead, but by the slimmest of margins over a surging Jeremy Hulme. But don't count first half leader SuperRadz out of the picture just yet; he had a second nice week in a row and is still 14 points back of the leaders. A good week at the plate and he'll muscle his way back into the conversation.

We have a change in order at the top five as well, with whambam surpassing oladipo_for_mayor for the fifth spot. With dgriot slowing in the second half, whambam may be able to catch him yet as well.

Jeremy Hulme was hitting on all cylinders this week, nailing almost every pick en route to a 15-point week! He needed all of those points, as second half leader pulled out a 10-point week as well. SuperRadz and whambam were also hitting on their picks this week, leading to a good week for the top four in the second half leaderboard.

Congratulations Jeremy Hulme, you are this week's Weekly Ichthyomancy Champion! This is Jeremy's second championship week in a row and his third overall; he is the only player with three championship weeks!

Jeremy Hulme takes over the second half leadership with his championship week, but Jigokusabre is still very close. One has to wonder what would have happened had Jigo not missed the Thursday game thinking it was an off day. Whambam is making his presence known, while SuperRadz has pulled even with Andrew Townes for a tie for fourth place in the second half standings. A few more consistently good weeks from SuperRadz and he could pull himself back into major contention for the overall leaderboard.
