    Default Hey! How about a SuperBowl Lottery!

    visit-red-300x50PNG
    No

    cost to enter. You just have to be a customer; ie: have purchased something other than the free samples sometime in

    the last year or so.

    We start a SuperBowl Lottery thread and everyone can take one guess on the final score.

    One guess per customer and once a score is guessed, it is taken and nobody else can use that exact

    score.

    Winner gets $100. gift coupon. How about that?

    Just let me know what you think? Don't start

    guessing scores here.

    Yea, just figure out how to determine

    who wins, because it is likely the exact score won't be guessed.

    ex: Do you have to get the winner right, or

    is it just closest to each team's points?

    Hey Einstein! It says "don't start

    guessing scores yet." :-)

    That is a problem about determining the winner. How about we add up how many

    points off a contestant was on each of the two teams' scores; then whoever has the lowest "points" wins. EG:

    Let's say the final score is Pats 21 Eagles 28; then Einstein has a "score" on our game here of 21 and the fact

    that he picked the Pats to win doesn't mean anything. OR.... we could eliminate everyone who picked the losing

    team to win and then do the "sum of the off-points" thing with the remaining folks. OR???

    This sounds good, Bruce: .... we

    could eliminate everyone who picked the losing team to win and then do the "sum of the off-points" thing with the

    remaining folks. OR???

    The winner should be someone who picks the winning team.

    But anyway you decide to do

    it, you know there will be participation. Or as it was once said, "if you build it, they will come."

    Default Let the SuperBowl Lottery Begin!!!!

    Pick the (closest) final score of the SuperBowl (this Sunday, isn't it?) and win a $100. gift coupon at

    Love-Scent.com. In lieu of an exact match, the winner will be the person with the *closest* scores... AND who

    predicted the winning team acurately. See example above for details.

    Should we post it here

    now??? I would recomend a total score plus predicting the winner. For example if the eagles win 24-21, then you

    would want to predict the total score to be 45 with the eagles winning. Trying to figure out who is closest

    otherwise will be a lot of work for you Bruce.

    Yes, post here now.

    MMan.

    Good idea, but let's stick with the original plan. It's not so much work and will be a more accurate judge of

    who's the best guesser.

    Question

    Lets see if me have the right

    idea...

    The winning team + the exact scores WINS, and if there is NO correct exact scores...

    The

    winning team + the one who's sum is closest to that of both scores added together WINS, yes?

    picks the winner and the lowest sum

    of the amount of points the person was off for each projected score.

    2 off on eagles score and 5 off on

    patriots is 7.

    0 means you got the exact score, and would obviousl be the lowest sum.

    Yeah, like he said. He didn't

    get that "Sage" ranking for nothing apparently.
