I wish someone (not me) would develop something for Science or Fiction such that the rogues will enter and lock their answers before hearing the others. There's obviously a bit of group think going on and this week was a perfect example. It could also randomize the order in which they present their rationale and the order of the reveal.

I don't mind the way they do it now, and in fact it's interesting to hear the byplay as one is influenced by another. I try to select my own answer before any of them starts. I'm wrong far more often than if I used a random number generator to pick my answer. So much so that it's an event when I get it right. Steve's choice of order is fine with me. I don't view SoF as a contest among the rogues. I view it as a test of my own acumen.
