    True enough write.

    Just don't assume one word I used marred or mangled the story. It's still clear and concise. Standard gamer in length and description.

    But using words like corralled -- unless you're talking about horses -- is just BAD writing.

    So in addition to corralling a bunch of boards, did your boy also drain a few treys, dish some dimes and tally in double digits for the third time in as many games.

    No, no and no.

    And, he's not my boy.

    I couldn't care less who ever wins a game.

    There's only one thing to say:

    You suck, SoSueMe. You suck.

    Your quest for cleverness continues. You may have a long wait.

    Seriously, So Sue Me, corralled is just a bad word...even by the defnition you posted it doesn't fit.

    How about collecting caroms? Is that acceptable? :D

    Edit: That might be a record. I hit post three times and each time a new reply had been posted...from So Sue Me to DyePack to Spnited.

    Well, at least the quality and intelligence of the poster kept increasing...until you interrupted it.

    Got to agree with The Old Man.

    If you need to rely on finding weird terms to avoid repeated use of the word "scored," you are not being modern, you are the worst kind of dinosaur: the woolly thesaurus. All those hack cliches have been around a long time -- or did you think today's third-rate TV and radio announcers made them up?
