WINTERTIME IS HERE, HUZZAH!

WELCOME TO THE SUPER MEGA STREAMLINED SEXY SMOOTH WINTER GAME 2018!

 

Looking for a fun and frantic way to quench your predictioning thirst until next summer rolls around again? If yes, the winter game is where things be at. The game will run from Friday November 2nd (There is no week zero this winter) until Monday February 25th. So that means that all grosses and predictions will only count until Monday February 25thAs for structure, the main focus is on 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 (Spur of the Moment – You will learn to love these  ) 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 that gets released during the course of the winter game (If you think that some film listed on BOM for a 22 screen limited release is going to explode to $750M domestic, then go ahead and predict it).

 

 

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

😎 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 25,000 points. For every film you call in the exact spot, you will get 50,000 points (total). So you must think this out thoroughly. You will also lose 15,000 points for every film in the top 15 that you call incorrectly. So, for example, if you say Rogue One will be in the top 15, and it misses the top 15, you will lose 15,000 points (PLUS whatever you miss the gross by).  

 

If you are able to call the top two positions right, in order, regardless of the gross, you will get a 50,000 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 are able to call the top four positions right, in order, regardless of the 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.

 

 

The more in depth scoring is in the spoilers:

OTHER ADD ONS:

 

If less than 10 players successfully predict a film to finish in the top 15, those players will score a 50,000 point bonus.

If less than 5 players successfully predict a film to finish in the top 15, those players will score a 75,000 point bonus.

If 1 solitary player successfully predicts a film to finish in the top 15, that players will score a 150,000 point bonus.

 

 

 

BONUS STRUCTURE.  
 

9 of the 15 films correct, regardless of order and get a 50,000 point bonus

 

Call 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 175,000 point bonus.

Call 12 films correct, regardless of the order and you will receive a 250,000 point bonus.

Call 13 correct, regardless of order, and you get a 350,000 point bonus.

 

Call 14 correct, regardless of order, and you get a 500,000 point bonus.

 

If you call all 15 correct, regardless of order, you will get a 750,000 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 50,000 bonus points

Call a film’s gross to within 5 million to get 35,000 bonus points

Call a film’s gross to within 10 million to get 25,000 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 5000 bonus points

Call a film’s gross to within 50 million to get no bonus points

 

Call a film’s gross to within 50.01-80 million lose 10,000 points and lose 1,000 points for every subsequent 10M you are away. *If the film finishes in the top 15, the maximum points that can be lost are 25,000. If the film is not in the top 15, there is no upper limit for points lost.  

 

The closest predictor for each of the top 15 films will receive an additional 40,000 points to their total (no matter how wrong that prediction may be)

 

If anyone can predict at least 4 of the top 15 to within 50 million, they will score a bonus 50,000 points

 

If anyone can predict at least 6 of the top 15 to within 50 million, they will score a bonus 75,000

 

If anyone can predict at least 8 of the top 15 to within 50 million, they will score a bonus 100,000 points

 

If anyone can predict at least 10 of the top 15 to within 50 million, they will score a bonus 150,000 points

 

If anyone can predict at least 12 of the top 15 to within 50 million, they will score a bonus 250,000 points

 

 

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 DOUBLE points if the gross misses by more than the 50 million allotted to you. If however you call a film incorrectly in the top 15 but you are within the 50 million, YOU WILL NOT GET CREDIT FOR THOSE POINTS

 

If you don't enter a gross for a particular film in the top 15 and you've put that film in your top 14, the gross will be assumed to be the same as the film in the position you predicted below it and will be scored accordingly.  If you don't enter a gross for the 15th film, the gross used will be that of the 14th placed film you predicted. 

 

If you DO NOT enter any grosses, you are assumed to ABSTAIN from entering the gross for the top 15 and you will lose a score equal to worst score for grosses - 10k.  If the lowest score is +ve then you will lose 10k for grosses.  (you will still receive all points associated with the positions of course

 

 

 

 

 

B: DOMESTIC TOP 7 WEEKENDS (READ CAREFULLY)

 

NOTE: THIS IS NO LONGER EXCLUSIVELY OPENING WEEKENDS.

 

Due to platform style release schedule of award targeted films before the proper release date, 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 from Winter 2014 occurs again, the 100 million ‘3rd weekend’ or whenever it was would be that film’s qualifying weekend. A film cannot qualify twice however.

  

A film’s weekend will always be deemed its 3 day Friday to Sunday gross (including Thursday previews). 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 20,000 points

For each film in the exact spot you receive 10,000 bonus points (so 30,000 total)

 

Call top 2 in order and receive 40,000 bonus points

Call top 3 in order and receive 80,000 bonus points

Call top 4 in order and receive 120,000 bonus points

Call top 5 in order and receive 200,000 bonus points

 

Call 3 of the top 7 correctly (any order) receive 25,000 bonus points

Call 4 of the top 7 correctly (any order) 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 150,000 bonus points

Call top 7 (any order) receive 250,000 bonus points

 

For every incorrect film lose 10,000 points

 

The more in depth scoring is in the spoilers:

GROSS ACCURACY:

 

 

Call a film’s gross to within 1 million to get 50,000 bonus points

Call a film’s gross to within 2.5 million to get 35,000 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 15 million to get 15,000 bonus points

Call a film’s gross to within 20 million to get 10,000 bonus points

Call a film’s gross to within 30 million to get 5,000 bonus points

Call a film’s gross to within 40 million to get 0 bonus points

 

Miss the gross by more than 40M 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 20,000 points.

 

Predict 4 of the top 7 to within 30M and score a 50,000 point bonus

Predict 5 of the top 7 to within 30M and score a 100,000 point bonus

Predict 6 of the top 7 to within 30M and score a 175,000 point bonus

Predict 7 of the top 7 to within 30M and score a 250,000 point bonus

 

 

 NEW RULE!!! - If you don't enter a gross for a particular film in the top 7 and you've put that film in your top 7, the gross will be assumed to be the same as the film in the position you predicted below it and will be scored accordingly.  If you don't enter a gross for the 7th film, the gross used will be that of the 6th placed film you predicted. 

 

If you DO NOT enter any grosses, you are assumed to ABSTAIN from entering the gross for the Top 7 Weekends and you will lose a score equal to worst score for grosses - 5k.  If the lowest score is +ve then you will lose 5k for grosses.  (you will still receive all points associated with the positions of course)

 

 

 

 

 

😄 TOP 12 WORLDWIDE TOTAL GROSS

For each film in the exact spot you receive 15,000 bonus points (so 40,000 total)

 

Call top 2 in order and receive 50,000 bonus points

Call top 3 in order and receive 75,000 bonus points

Call top 4 in order and receive 125,000 bonus points

Call top 5 in order and receive 200,000 bonus points

(You will lose double these points if the film doesn’t make the top 10 WW.) *If the film finishes in the top 15, the maximum points that can be lost are 25,000. If the film is not in the top 15, there is no upper limit for points lost.

NEW RULE!! - If you don't enter a gross for a particular film in the Top 10 Domestic and you've put that film in your top 9, the gross will be assumed to be the same as the film in the position you predicted below it and will be scored accordingly.  If you don't enter a gross for the 10th film, the gross used will be that of the 9th placed film you predicted. 

 

If you DO NOT enter any grosses, you are assumed to ABSTAIN from entering the gross for the Top 10 Worldwide and you will lose a score equal to worst score for grosses - 10k.  If the lowest score is +ve then you will lose 10k for grosses.  (You will still receive all points associated with the positions of course)

 

 

 

😧 MULTIPLIERS MULTIPLY THE FUN!

Predict which 5 Domestic wide releases have the largest multipliers. The multiplier will be determined by the films total gross divided by their opening Fri-Sun (Incl Thurs previews) gross.

 

A film will only be eligible for this list if: (If a film fails to meet any of these requirements, it will lose either 10 or 25k depending on its gross)

l  It opens before February 1st 

l  Is in more than 1,500 theaters in its first weekend 

l  Makes more than $40M.

 

POINT SYSTEM:

Call a film correctly in the top 5:  30,000 points

Call a film correctly in the top 5 and in the correct place:  50,000 points (including the above 30)

 

Chosen film does not make top 5 – Minus 10,000 points

Chosen film does not make $40m – Minus 10,000 points

Chosen film does not make $40m AND does not make top 5 – Minus 25,000 points (total)

 

Call 3 of the top 5 – 25,000 points

Call 4 of the top 5 – 50,000 points

Call 5 of the top 5 – 100,000 points

Call 3 of the top 5 in the correct positions – 40,000 points

Call 4 of the top 5 in the correct positions – 80,000 points

Call 5 of the top 5 in the correct positions – 150,000 points

 

GROSS ACCURACY:

There are no gross/multiplier predictions required only placements.

 

E: RANDOM FREE QUESTIONS

 

This winter we have three generous risk-free questions to start you off:

 

RFQ1:  Predict which film will finish closest to each of the following milestones domestically by the end of the game:

 

A: 50M

B: 100M

😄 150M

😧 200M

E: 300M

 

RFQ2: Predict which film will finish closest to each of the following milestones Worldwide by the end of the game:

RFQ3: Predict the highest grossing film of each month by the end of the game:

SCORING

Predict the second placed film – 10,000 points

Predict all 5 first placed films – 75,000 bonus

Predict all 5 first or second placed films – 25,000 bonus

 

 

This is everything. There will be no big list of preseason questions this winter. Instead, there will be three POTM (Preseason of the Month ) questions. These will all have a deadline of the start of game.

 

Oh and the Survivor is back, that's always fun!!!

 

***ONE FINAL NOTE***

 

The official Deadline for this game is November 2nd. There is no Week Zero or backup second deadline. That is it!

When u make ur predictions....here

 You can pick 1 as a backup option in each category in case a movie exits the games timeframe. This movie will then be used in place of the movie that exited
