You've got to admit, that's a really nice score, even if it isn't that common. On the other hand, there is this: That was the first Buccaneer game ever to end in that particular score.
So we'll give you a pass, and pass the prize for last week's contest on to this week's competition. Those are the rules of Guess the Score after all. Any prize not won in a particular week is added to the next game's bounty.
And what a bounty this one is shaping up to be. Since no one has won the Guess the Score contest in the last five weeks, this week's guessing game will be played for a half-dozen rewards. New on the prize table this week:

So here is the entire windfall up for grabs this week in Guess the Score:
