Guess my age (in Contests)

Eorlas December 19 2006 3:59 PM EST

Since my birthday is tomorrow, I decided to host a little contest. The rules are simple, for each guess, send 5k to The Third Age and you may guess as many times as you like. The person to guess correctly receives the pot.

Bonne Chance!

With rules like those, this contest won't work ;)

I take it we are suppose to be guessing the Year rather than the day/month?

Flames Fame December 19 2006 4:09 PM EST

what day were you born on m-t-w-t-f-s-s???

Eorlas December 19 2006 4:09 PM EST

No, just simply guess what age I am (Ex 25, 63, 32..)

Ok then, how about 2k per guess?

bartjan December 19 2006 4:11 PM EST

The problem is that after someone makes a guess for 2k, anyone else after him will post the entire range between 0 and 120 (to be on the safe side), and has a much larger chance of winning...

Ok. So let me try again. I asked someone if 5k was too much and they said no so I'm going to bump up the send amount back to 5k. BUT the new rule is, a limit of 2 guesses per person.

As by suggestion, the starting pot will be 30k and additional guesses will add 2k to it. Limit 2 guesses per person

Those of us with good memories had a slight advantage, considering you've said it in Chat before. xP

The other advantage OB is that you actually have chat ;)
