Well we got through it this time.
Such a strange experience, very difficult to explain. I didn't feel particularly tired/bad at any point. It felt like a sort of dream state, but with each dream being vivid then all of a sudden you don't remember that lifelike dream you just had. So when you're part-way through the challenge and you're looking back it doesn't feel like you've been going long.
Anyway from what I've heard the guys following the stream estimated a score comfortably in excess of the existing World Record. But it will take a long time to go through the footage and count the scores up.
Would be chuffed if we are the new World Record holders. Mainly for my dad, he'd get a lot more joy out of it than me I think.
Recordings of the attempt will remain on here: Scrabcast1

After hour upon hour of putting the plays into Quackle and spreadsheets it looks like with 7 games left to include (the games were all streamed online but the internet went down a few times, so I need to piss about getting the footage for the last 7) that we're going to beat the existing record of 196,525 points by about 500-700. That's less than one completed game, about 4-5 minutes of play.
I'm more knackered counting the thing than doing the 24 hours. That was the easy part. I don't know if the probable record will last long enough to get in print, but I'm quite looking forward to getting the final score worked out and then getting that certificate from Guinness.
Thanks, haven't thought of an appropriate way to celebrate yet.
I need a vacation. Need to find somewhere nice, get my backpack and go camp there for a few days. Get in some walking as well of course.
Crowthorne would be appropriate.
