Remember my "Half serious," switch offer? Does anyone wish they had switched with me? ;)

Fun game, thanks Wizard! I didnít realize when I made my picks that this was a version of the three vendor problem.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

For some of the questions could I have picked ANY number as a selection, even if the number was not a whole number , for example, prop 3. Total points, would 50.5 points have been a valid or invalid selection for this prop?

I didn't want to ask this until after the game, because I had already submitted my picks
If we were allowed to pick a ".5" number as well as a whole number, it would have meant "less chance" of splitting the 100 points for each question (for the props that required a number as the selection)

Also, thanks for the prop bet challenge, as It made a fairly "boring" game a lot more enjoyable.

This was Wizard's game, but I suspect a pick of 50.5 points (for example), would have most certainly been a valid selection. (If I were in charge of the game, I would have allowed it without a moment's hesitation.)

I found it interesting that of 47 players, no one selected the MoV to be 10.

That is interesting.

I actually considered an MoV of 6, 7 and 10 to start with, but I thought too many people would pick 7 or 10, so that is why I picked 6 ( a lot of the "yes/no" questions would split the points, so you had to try to be the "only winner" on something, to give yourself a good chance of coming out on top).

At least I didn't come "last", I think I was 2nd last : )

I show Tommy711 winning, with 223.61 points.



Congratulations Tommy!!! It will take two or three more months for the second version of my book to be out. If I forget to reach out, please PM me after I mention it to settle up. Or you can have the old version now with the cards.

Nathan is second with 123.08 points.



Congratulations for winning Ms. Runner Up, Nathan! We almost did it. It looks like we made SOOPOO sweat that bet hard. That would have been epic if we had won. Free copy of my book to you too, when its out, or you can have the old version now.

Give me a few minutes to double-check everything.



My thanks to Ed and Charlie for scoring everything. I know it was time consuming and I appreciate your help.

Finally, my thanks to all who played. Let's do this again next year.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Thank you Wizard for making a fun game out of the biggest Dustbowl of game! :D If it weren't for you, this game would have been completely crappy. ;) Wow! I won Runner Up! :D I was not expecting to win Runner Up! There was a Celebration of Oscar Categories who could have won and it was titled,"It's An Honor To Be Runner Up," or something like that. Reminds me of this game. :)
