  3. So this was supposed to be the start of the new game and I flubbed it. We are still starting a new game and there will be some new rules, but I won’t have them drafted until this evening.

    • Your predictions will still be valid, but the proximity of your selection to the final result will determine part of your point totals…and duplicating numbers of other players is still ok, but with limitations (don’t do it on more than a couple of predictions if you can avoid it.

      • Also, are you going to weigh the prediction total more than the prediction rank? Seems like getting the right total is a lot harder than the right rank. ?

        • Most likely, you’ll have two groups of point totals and instead of having an overall winner, we’ll just have group winners…which I also need to finalize at some point…and get to the ones from last year I hadn’t yet finished.

    • I will try to reread the rules before 10 PM PST Friday night (unless you are changing that) and revise my predictions accordingly. Yay for the new start! (I thought I was going to have to play catch up for the rest of the year.)

      :)
