The astonishing thing was that the last game, #640 lifetime, completed a row of exactly 80 wins in each of the 8 categories - Red vs. Blue, Odd Hexes vs. Even Hexes, and Odd Legs vs. Even Legs. Also astonishing: the accumulative Red points over 176 games exactly matched the accumulative Blue points - 5,095 each!

here's a picture of the last game, midgame:

Blue has given Red the First Sea Snake at the lower left in Turn 17, and then Red gave Blue an answering Snake at the bottom center in Turn 18. Red's Snake actually cashed a Red point, along with 3 Blue points and deleting 2 of Red's claims. 2 + 3 - 1 = net 4 points, same net as Blue's Snake to Red.
