SOTM 6 - Building a pyramid of predictions.

    Recommended Posts

    We all know pyramids, they are great for storing dead Egyptian people inside. 

    They are also famous for being bigger on the bottom and smaller at the top. Kind of like a triangle. 

     

    So that is what we are going to build. Our own pyramids. I am going to list a whole bunch of different unknown (or known) values. You just have to build a pyramid as tall or as short as you dare. (So basically you list the predictions with the highest value at the bottom and lowest at the top. 

     

    Here are the values:

     

    12 Days of Deadpool Total box office

    Aquaman OW total 

    Into the Spiderverse domestic total

    Mary Poppins UK total in dollars

     

    The Grinch's December total

    Glass's domestic total after 7 days

    Escape Room's WW total

    Bumblebee's China total

     

    $100M - Arctic Dogs' domestic total 

    Mary Poppins combined total but just for domestic Saturday and Sunday grosses, no weekdays. 

    How to Train Your Dragon's OW doubled. 

    $80M 

     

    So your pyramid can be anything from 1 prediction to 12 predictions high. And here is the scoring. 

     

    For every successful step of the pyramid (as in the value above is smaller than the one below), score 6,000 points. 

    If the pyramid is perfect and at least 4 steps high, double the score. 

    If there is an incorrect step. Lose 5,000 points from the score and then resume the pyramid, but now correct steps score 4,000 points. 

    If there is another incorrect step. Lose 10,000 points from the score and then resume the pyramid, but correct steps score 2,000 points. 

    If there is another incorrect step. Lose 15,000 points from the score and then resume the pyramid, but correct steps score 1000 points.

    If there is another incorrect step. Lose 20,000 points from the score and also lose an additional 5000 points for every remaining step. 

     

    There is no abstaining as you can just put one random thing down and score 6,000 points. 

     

    Deadline is the weekly deadline.

    I am quite ill, so in case that scoring is not clear here are some examples:

     

    Player A predicts 5 things and those result in values as follows:

     

    20M

    40M 

    60m
    80M

    100M

     

    He scores 6,000 x 5 x 2 (perfect bonus) = 60,000 points

     

     

    Player B predicts 6 things and those result in values as follows:

     

    20M

    40M 

    60M

    30M
    80M

    100M

     

    She scores 6,000 x 3 - 5000 +  4000 x 2 = 21,000 points

     

     

    Player C predicts 12 things and those result in values as follows:

     

    10M

    20M

    30M

    70M

    50M 

    55M

     

    60M
    80M

    100M

    85M

    90M

    100M

     

    They score 6,000 x 3 - 5000 +  4000 x 4 - 10000 + 2000 x 3 = 25,000 points

    Okay, as I have realised clarity is not the best with this. Can you specify which prediction is supposed to be the highest one. 

     

    I am assuming it is number 1 is biggest and 6 or 9 or whatever is the smallest. 

     

    is that right for @WrathOfHan and @Mike Hunt

    I went from lowest to highest. Should it be the other way around?

    If you clarify which is highest and which is lowest, then it does not matter too much.

     

    For scoring purposes, it will start at the highest value and move up to the lowest.

    That was the intention, but then folks started numbering stuff too and that's when disease ridden delirious old me wanders whether the numbers are meant to mean anything and I get all confuzzled.
