Chasmmi's Winter Game - Grey Ghost is the WINNER!

Recommended Posts

WINTERTIME IS HERE, HUZZAH!


WELCOME TO THE SUPER FUN HAPPY SLIDE WINTER GAME 2015!

This will run for the most part like the summer game that we all know and love. There may be one or two twists and turns along the way (such as this game will not start in May but October), but it will for the most part be the game that you both deserve and the one you want right now.

The game will run from Friday October 16rd until Sunday February 21st. So that means that all grosses and predictions will only count until Sunday February 21st.

As for structure, it is as you would expect, there will be preseason general gross predictions and a sprinkling of bonus questions. Then during the game itself, there will be weekly sets of questions as well as the good old SOTM questions too. So let’s get to the predictioning:

A: DOMESTIC TOP 15

Predict the 15 films you believe will gross the highest over the course of the winter game along with a predicted gross. You may choose any film for this list so long as it receives a US cinematic release between the dates of October 16th and February 21st. (So if you think some indie film, currently down for being released in 7 cinemas nationwide, is going to go on to break 200M, go ahead and predict it [Hey American Sniper sort of did that last year).

Therefore your top 15 predictions should look something like the following:

1) Avatar: 485M
2) Ernest Saves Christmas 46lM
3) The Tom and Jerry Movie 411M
4) Ironclaws! Fists of fury. 325M
5) Honey we ate the kids 232M
6) The Really Amazing Spiderman, We Promise it Really is This Time 4: 177M
7) Halloween Part Ninety Three 155M
8) BSG: The Movie 118M
9) Sparticus 2: The Quickening 115M
10) Hans: A prince’s Tale 112M
11) Snow White and the 7 Gigolos 109M
12) Aliens vs Ja Ja Binks 104M
13) We Bought a Nuclear Powerplant 101M
14) Tetris The Movie 95M
15) On the Cusp of Yesterday 92M

POINT SYSTEM:

For every film you call correctly in the top 15, in any order, you will get 15,000 points. For every film you call in the exact spot, you will get 25,000 points (total). So you must think this out thoroughly. You will also lose 10,000 points for every film in the top 15 that you call incorrectly. So, for example, if you say Hunger Games will be in the top 15, and it misses the top 15, you will lose 10,000 points (PLUS whatever you miss the gross by).

And one more caveat to this is the double whammy rule. If you call a film to hit the top 15 and it misses, you will lose points for missing the top 15 AND you will lose points if the gross misses by more than the 40 million allotted to you. If however you call a film incorrectly in the top 15 but you are within the 40 million, YOU WILL NOT GET CREDIT FOR THOSE POINTS.

If you are able to call the top two positions right, in order, regardless of the gross, you will get a 75,000 point bonus.

If you are able to call the top three positions right, in order, regardless of the gross, you will get a 100,000 point bonus.

If you can call the top four positions right, in order, regardless of gross, you will get a 150,000 point bonus.
If you are able to call the top five positions right, in order, regardless of gross, you will get a 250,000 point bonus. This is not as easy as you might think it is.

If you are a genius and can call the top 10 right, in order, regardless of gross, you will get a 750,000 point bonus.

If you can call 12 right in order, you get a million bonus points.

OTHER ADD ONS:

Call SPOTS 3-6 correct, regardless of order, and receive a 100,000 point bonus.
Call SPOTS 9-12 correct, regardless of order, and receive a 100,000 point bonus.
Call ANY 6 SPOTS in the correct place (eg: 3rd, 6th, 8th, 9th, 12th and 14th) and receive a 200,000 point bonus.

BONUS STRUCTURE.

Call 6 or 7 of the 15 films correct, regardless of order and get a 50,000 point bonus

Call 8-10 of the 15 films correctly, regardless of the order, and receive a 100,000 point bonus.

Call 11 of the top 15 correct, regardless of order, receive a 200,000 point bonus.

Call 12 films correct, regardless of the order and you will receive a 350,000 point bonus.

Call 13 correct, regardless of order, and you get a 500,000 point bonus.
Call 14 correct, regardless of order, and you get a 700,000 point bonus.
If you call all 15 correct, regardless of order, you will get a 1 million point bonus

This does not eliminate the bonus points originally mentioned, it will just add to them.

GROSS ACCURACY:

Call a film’s gross to within 2 million to get 30,000 bonus points
Call a film’s gross to within 5 million to get 25,000 bonus points
Call a film’s gross to within 10 million to get 20,000 bonus points
Call a film’s gross to within 20 million to get 15,000 bonus points
Call a film’s gross to within 30 million to get 10,000 bonus points
Call a film’s gross to within 40 million to get 0 bonus points
Call a film’s gross to within 40.01-60 million lose 10,000 points and lose 1,000 points for every subsequent 10M you are away.

The closest predictor for each of the top 15 films will receive an additional 10,000 points to their total (no matter how wrong that prediction may be)
If anyone can predict at least 10 of the top 15 to within 40 million they will score a bonus 75,000 points
If anyone can predict at least 12 of the top 15 to within 40 million they will score a bonus 150,000 points

 

B: DOMESTIC TOP 7 WEEKENDS (READ CAREFULLY)

NOTE: THIS IS NO LONGER EXCLUSIVELY OPENING WEEKENDS.

Due to the staggered release/crazy hold nature of winter/Oscar time, this section will no longer be exclusively opening weekends but rather any weekend in general. This means that if a repeat of the American Sniper situation occurs again, the 100 million ‘3rd weekend’ or whenever it was would be that films qualifying weekend.

A film’s weekend will always be deemed its 3 day Friday to Sunday gross. So if a film opens on a Wednesday, only the BOM reported Friday-Sunday 3 day will count as the weekend total.


POINT SYSTEM:

For each correctly predicted film, regardless of order you receive 10,000 points
For each film in the exact spot you receive 5,000 bonus points (so 15,000 total)
Call top 3 in order and receive 50,000 bonus points
Call 5 of the top 7 correctly (any order) receive 75,000 bonus points
Call 6 of the top 7 (any order) receive 100,000 bonus points
Call top 7 (any order) receive 150,000 bonus points
For every incorrect film lose 7,000 points

GROSS ACCURACY:

Call a film’s gross to within 1 million to get 30,000 bonus points
Call a film’s gross to within 2.5 million to get 25,000 bonus points
Call a film’s gross to within 5 million to get 20,000 bonus points
Call a film’s gross to within 10 million to get 15,000 bonus points
Call a film’s gross to within 15 million to get 10,000 bonus points
Call a film’s gross to within 20 million to get 5,000 bonus points
Call a film’s gross to within 30 million to get no bonus points

Miss the gross by more than 30M and lose 10,000 points (You will lose these points even if the film doesn’t make the top 7 OW.)
The closest predictor for each film will also receive a bonus 10,000 points.


C: WORLDWIDE TOTAL GROSS

Predict the top 10 grossing films of the Winter, worldwide.

POINT SYSTEM:

For each correctly predicted film, regardless of order you receive 20,000 points
For each film in the exact spot you receive 10,000 bonus points (so 30,000 total)
Call top 3 in order and receive 100,000 bonus points
Call top 5 in order and receive 200,000 bonus points
Call 8 of the top 10 correctly (any order) receive 100,000 bonus points
Call 9 of the top 10 (any order) receive 150,000 bonus points
Call top 10 (any order) receive 200,000 bonus points
For every incorrect film lose 10,000 points

GROSS ACCURACY:

Call a film’s gross to within 10 million to get 50,000 bonus points
Call a film’s gross to within 25 million to get 35,000 bonus points
Call a film’s gross to within 50 million to get 25,000 bonus points
Call a film’s gross to within 75 million to get 10,000 bonus points
Call a film’s gross to within 100 million to get 5,000 bonus points
Call a film’s gross to within 150 million to get no bonus points

Miss the gross by 150-200M and lose 10,000 points. Then also lose an additional 1,000 points for every subsequent 20M you miss the final total by. (You will lose these points even if the film doesn’t make the top 10 WW.)


D: TOTAL GROSSES

Predict a total gross for each of: Top 15 Domestic, Top 7 W/E and Top 10 WW (This does not have to have any mathematical connection to your predictions in parts A-C). This will look something like:

Top 15: 3 Billion dollars
Top 7 W/E 475M
Top 10 WW: 8 Trillion Dollars

POINT SYSTEM:

For each prediction if you are:
Within 10% of the final total. score 10,000 points
Within 8% of the final total. score 15,000 points
Within 5% of the final total. score 25,000 points
Within 2% of the final total. score 40,000 points

If all three predictions are within 10% score a bonus 15,000
If all three predictions are within 8% score a bonus 30,000
If all three predictions are within 5% score a bonus 60,000
If all three predictions are within 2% score a bonus 100,000


E:THE STAR WARS PREDICTION SAGA

Predict the top 5 Overseas (so not North America) territories for Star Wars: The Force Awakens over the duration of the game. Also predict one back up in the event of the film not being released there in time (looking at you China!)

POINT SYSTEM:

For each correctly predicted country, regardless of order you receive 15,000 points
For each country in the exact spot you receive 10,000 bonus points (so 25,000 total)
Call 3 of the top 5 correctly (any order) receive 40,000 bonus points
Call 4 of the top 5 (any order) receive 60,000 bonus points
Call top 5 (any order) receive 100,000 bonus points
For every incorrect film lose 10,000 points

GROSS ACCURACY:

There are no gross predictions required only placements.

LET THE GAMES BEGIN!!!


HERE ARE YOUR PRE SEASON BONUS QUESTIONS THAT MUST BE ANSWERED BEFORE MIDNIGHT OCTOBER 16th.

NOTE: In the event that a film gets pulled from release completely, if this schedule change occurs before October 11th, a new film will be added to replace it. Players will then still have 5 days to change their answer as they please (anybody who predicts the removed film and doesn’t change in this time will automatically have their prediction assigned to the new film).

If the film exits the schedules after October 11th, then for yes/no answers, the question will be considered void, for questions with multiple answers such as 1 and 2, the option will be removed from the game and the question will continue.

20) Will Star Wars still be in the domestic top 10 at the end of the game?

I was hoping it would start this weekend. October 16 is too late. It puts The Martian, The Walk and Pan out of the game.

Quick question about weekends: Are we allowed to counts second and third weekends of movies that went wide in weekend one?

 

It's the best single weekend, whenever that may be. If Star Wars opens wide to 45M and then in week 7 has a 195M 3 day weekend, then that 195M weekend will be the qualifying weekend of Star Wars' run.

As defending champion, I have to vacate my title since I won't be around through most of December including Star Wars OW due to personal commitments in India. Best of luck to everyone and I will be back next year for the title again  :P  :D

Nice post.

I am happy with the new weekend rule.

Why are there no more make-up?

Chasmmi, what about a "delay" rule? If a movie is delayed to a date that is nearer than 17 days to the deadline, than you use a make up and the movie doesn't count.

Pah!!! That's like no more than 4 weekly questions and maybe 2 SOTMs that you miss (two of which you can get make ups for).

 

Filmovie won the 2014 summer game practically without participating at all during the season. This is clearly just code for chickening out mixed with a lacl of faith in your pre-season predictioning skills :P

By make up, I assume you mean back up. It was removed partly due to the later finish of the game meaning a delay into January won't bump a film out of the game mixed with the fact that over the course of the last winter and 2 summer games, I believe only one film managed to disqualify itself after the game had begun and I think only 1 person had chosen it.

 

I wanted to add the element of danger back t the top 15 predictions :)

 

as for delaying, it just creates gray areas, and I want to make things as black and white as possible.

North America excludes Mexico, right?

 

Yeah, it's North America in the box office sense, as in USA and Canada.

 

Mexico is overseas. I just wrote North America to stop anyone randomly picking Canada.
