Default [Dixonary] Round 2799: FAMPLE Results

Despite waiting 47 hours, not everyone voted.¬* I didn‚Äôt mean to wait that long‚Ķ oops!



The winner of round 2799 is Chris Carson, whose definition "To move in a tossing, bubbling, or rippling manner, as choppy water" received 3 votes, plus 2 points for guessing the correct def.



There were 3 players in coveted second place with 3 points each: Tony Abell, John Barrs and Nancy Shepherdson.



The true definition was 6: "To feed a child", which 3 perceptive players guessed.
