Sparrow, Arth doesn’t vote on these questioning proposals. Voting def isn’t a very good idea.

CoV against Given that A is ‘01’, B is ‘02’, C is ‘03’, and continuing in that manner until Z is ‘26’, what is the number made by concatenating all the values of each letter in the Theme in order?

For example, if the theme were ‘Dog’, the number would be 041507 or 41507.

If I were speaking out loud, it might be ambiguous, but I wrote, “each letter in the Theme,” not “each letter in ‘the Theme.’”

Punctuation is unimportant.

Rodlen:

“the Theme” can refer to “the Theme” or the Theme itself…

If we applied that same logic to the current Ruleset, this game would be hopelessly unplayable.
