I'm in. It is an even-numbered year, so I'm sure to win.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I like the idea of paying upfront especially when there are 30 people involved. However, with some of the sites the names are shown and some people dont like that.

I would vote to pay up front. Maybe if there is name sensitivity for some, then some volunteer (Wizard or Mission?) could receive funds from those people and put them on the fund holding site.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

I think that I'm going to do the flat entry fee again, but we're going to go back to the honor system. I think it was a condition of WoN's donation that I collect the entry fees prior to the start of the contest, but I could be wrong about that. Either way, there's really no good reason I should need to hold everybody's money for seventeen weeks. It's honestly more of a PITA for me than anything else, because half of it is in the form of Amazon Gift Cards. I thought only a little of it would be. I really don't need that many Amazon Gift Cards...lol


I agree to a flat fee.
20 bucks. I think thats whats its always been?
Open to everyone.
Honor system for anybody that has participated b4
New players, i think its a good idea if Mission or somebody else trustworthy hold.

By the way I am in of course.

I got a plan, we take all your picks we reverse them like one of those twilight zone episodes where everything is the opposite. You say "black" we go white.

It's always a plus when the game gets interest before I even have to do anything!

Plenty of posts to answer, so here we go:

-The entry fee is going to be $25 again.

-All players must have a join date on or prior to July 1st, 2018.

-I'm going to do $75 for the, "Most Average," prize and $75 for the, "You Suck," prize. However, each player to win one of those prizes will get $50 and the remaining $25 ($50 total) will be used to pay what they owe the winner.

-If I am the, "Winner," then the, "Most Average," and, "You Suck," players get $50 each and all other winnings go to whoever comes in second place. I will also be defending the, "Most Average," and, "You Suck," prizes. Essentially, my taking any one of those three spots just saves me $50.

-I'm really more inclined to go with the honor system than paying anything for any service. Paying for a service is just EV down the toilet for everybody.

-Thanks for the stats, MidWestAP! I was thinking about compiling that and you beat me to it!

-I really think we could go honor system. This was always meant as a fun little game. I don't even think anyone bet anyone else the first year, I think I just gave $50 to whoever won.

The honor system is destine for controversy,
people will join simply because it's free and
when it's time to pay you know whats going
to happen.
