Ian Joseph -> RE: 2018 Draft Prediction Challenge (4/8/2018 12:53:08 AM)

Just finished finalizing the challenge. Here are the stats.

* 17 questions + 1 tiebreaker
* 10 new questions, including 2 making their format debut
* First question ever with more than one right answer
* 8 Vikings related questions
* A big surprise

The contest is worth more points than ever. Themes remain players, teams, trades and of course, as always, Vikings. And the contest definitely extends into Day 3, so it won't be over after the 1st round like in past years.

See you in a few hours.

Thanks Ian!




Ian Joseph -> RE: 2018 Draft Prediction Challenge (4/8/2018 8:15:48 PM)

To clarify, the team that selects last is about the final pick of the draft. I'll re word the question.




Ian Joseph -> RE: 2018 Draft Prediction Challenge (4/14/2018 12:09:20 PM)

Murph, looks like you had two entries on accident. I deleted the one that wasn't the most recent update.




kgdabom -> RE: 2018 Draft Prediction Challenge (4/14/2018 12:32:45 PM)

Vikings picks only get bonus points if they are one of the entries selected bonus point teams. Right?

Ian Joseph -> RE: 2018 Draft Prediction Challenge (4/18/2018 10:24:04 AM)

That rat bastard ain't winning lol. Jaleel Johnson and his 10 points isn't in this draft.

But, to be fair, if he wins it again this year, I'll rename the contest after him.




kgdabom -> RE: 2018 Draft Prediction Challenge (4/18/2018 11:16:20 AM)

Delain if I don't win I hope your do. Good luck.




Guest -> RE: 2018 Draft Prediction Challenge (4/18/2018 10:03:51 PM)

Man I have not been paying any attention to the draft, or football.
My picks are gonna be interesting.

I am sticking to the facts, sirs. You guys can speculate all you want.




kgdabom -> RE: 2018 Draft Prediction Challenge (4/20/2018 10:26:38 AM)

Sorry, but one final question about the bonus points teams. If somebody gets any of the Vikings selections correct do they also get bonus points if the Vikings are one of their two bonus points teams?




Ian Joseph -> RE: 2018 Draft Prediction Challenge (4/20/2018 11:04:36 AM)

Like the questions about the Vikings specifically, as in number of trades, players selected, etc?

I was trying to clarify if we get bonus points only if the answer to the Question was Vikings or if we got bonus points for having the correct answer to any question involving the Vikings.
Example: If I get the Vikings last selection correct I get 20 points. If I have the Vikings as one of my 2 Bonus points team do you add 2 more points?




Ian Joseph -> RE: 2018 Draft Prediction Challenge (4/20/2018 12:54:18 PM)

Cmon dude. Weve been doing bonus points for three or four years.

No, you don't get bonus points for that. Why would you even think you get extra points for a non team oriented question, such as naming a player selected?

OK got it now. Just wanting to make sure I had it right.

They say there are no dumb questions.

They're wrong...but they say that.
