Well for me it would have been a easy choice - the Mooecow thread was a guy so out of his depth that he copped a fair bit of razzing for trying on what looked to be a hopeless basket case. As the thread on he learned then began to really make that truck come together till it became restoration magic. The results were jaw dropping esp given what Mooecow started with... and then he did it again with the Divco. The first is easily the more memorable just because of what he started with.

Or I could have picked KB's WRC rally tank but we havent really been showing that one off

And without further ado, some stats:

  • This game featured 51 players, in a three-way tie for the second-best showing (with Sheep Game #3 and #5). Of the total, 4 of them were new players; Many thanks to our new players astrollinthepork, blindjoe, Jeherrin and slidebite!

  • In all, there have been a total of 125 players across all seven Sheep Games, with an average of 49.85 players per game (up 0.15 from Game #5).

  • Of those 125 players, 13 have played in all seven Sheep Games. Many thanks to our ironmen/women once again: Bajaha, CAT INTERCEPTOR, InitialDave, IOwnCalculus, KozmoNaut, leica, meatpimp, Naked Bear, NitroSpazzz, sadnessboner, Seat Safety Switch, Somewhat Heroic and Terrible Robot.

  • 34 players have played in four or more Sheep Games, while 45 players have only played one Sheep Game. The average number of games played per player is 2.85, up 0.39 from the sixth Sheep Game.
