    Marshall's Marshalls wins

    Team Word Scramble

    This is a simple challenge yet requires teamwork from a decent amount of people to not make it too much for a couple because it is fairly big.

    Here's challenge and the rules.

    I have 50 names I need you to unscramble. The deadline is Wednesday at 8PM EST. Whichever team gets the most right wins.

    The tiebreaker goes to the team that turns it in first, so technically if you get 50/50 and turn it in you win the challenge. But this should take you guys at least a while unless you're insane. If you turn it in first and it's not 50/50 I will not announce anything until I have received answers from both teams. I put a few gimmies in there and some harder ones so I'm hoping nobody hits 50 and we can get a definite non tiebreaker winner :up:

    IMO the best idea for this is to try and spread it out to your team. Maybe teammates give the captain PMs of what they got so far and he can let everyone know what to go for and what's already been figured out.

    Each of these words is a persons full first and last name. Each one of these people is alive fyi. The words themselves are not in order but these are the categories of people I chose from. Basically your hints.

    10 Dolphins players past and present
    15 Athletes (MLB, NFL, NBA, Soccer)
    10 Famous People (Actors, commedians)
    5 Movie Directors
    5 Authors
    5 Video Game characters

    AIM or any kind of instant messenger is nice for this challenge IMO. Easier to spread out such and collaberate in a chat room if you go that route

    You said each one of these persons was alive. Does that include video game characters? How can a video game character be alive?

    I have no clue if there's Russian or European names. There's only a couple really odd names. But they're all legit. Some are just hard as **** at least IMO.

    Just roll with it. Everyone else is alive. The other 5 are video game characters. I don't think that screws up too much. :tongue2:

    I misspelled #41 by a letter. Damn weird spellings to normal names (which goes for myself too lol) but honestly I don't know if it helped much. I turned one of the A's into an E. :)

    We really needed fresh eyes. I poured through lists of the Miami Dolphins roster. Can't remember how many times I looked at Trace Armstrong and Richmond Webb. Two of my favorite Dolphins. Sick to my stomach that I missed those. :pity:

    Congrats Marshalls Marshalls.
