View Full Version : garnett_21's Xmas Contest #4 - Guess the Number!

This contest has two parts to it, and is very simple. First part is to correctly guess how many different cards are in my Minnesota Timberwolves PC. The second part, which does not begin until a winner is determined for the first part, is to correctly guess how many different players are in my Minnesota Timberwolves PC! Very easy, right?

Rules:
1) Open to all members, including SCF staff
2) One guess per half of this contest, per member, per hour. Please wait 30 minutes between guesses though - meaning, if you guess at 12:45, please wait until 1:15 until guessing again.
3) No editting of posts!
4) If noone gets the exact number 24 hours from the date of this post, the closest to the exact number without going over will be the winner, and the second part of this contest will then begin. In the second part, if noone gets it by 24 hours after this portion of the contest begins, the closest to the exact number without going over will be the winner. You do not have to participate in the first part of the contest to participate in the second part.
5) In order to give to as many members as possible, if you have already won one of my Christmas contests, you are ineligible to win this. If one member wins two contests, the contest that he/she is closest to getting right will be the contest he/she wins. The other contest that said member won would go to the 2nd place participant (or whichever place is the first participant to not have won a contest). If contest winner cannot be determined by the first option, I will just pick randomly which contest member would win. This is all subject to changing, but one member cannot win two contests.
6) Winner will receive a random card of mine. It may be an insert, a numbered card, a rookie card, or some other sort of card. It will be mailed in a PWE in order to save on shipping so I can run several contests. Also, there will be two winners for this contest, as stated above.

Thanks & good luck!

Winner! I own 1417 different Wolves cards - now 1419 after my Christmas breaks and today's mail.

Part two of this contest begins immediately and will last until someone gets the correct number, or at least 24 hours, whichever is shorter. Good luck all!

Updated...those who have already won are ineligible to win again, but you can still guess to help the others who haven't won by eliminating more numbers :-)

can we guess twice? rule #2 is confusing. it says one per half, then says every half hour.

You can guess one time per hour, but wait 30 minutes between guesses...the half was for the first half and second half of the contest, as there are two parts to this contest, and two prizes...first part is already done though :-)

dwighthoward - your guess of 138 was too early...you guessed twice in the 11:00 PM hour last evening. I still put the number on the first post, but please just be aware of the time! Thanks!

Updated...keep the guesses coming...only a few more hours til I shut this down!

There are only 161 players to appear in a game for the Wolves...plus coaches and the few players who never appeared in a game (Quentin Richardson, for one, who did have cards produced of him in a Wolves uni), it's probably about 175 max...so, you can guess again even though it hasn't turned to the next hour yet ;-)

Noone yet...you can guess again in the 1:00 PM CST hour though, as the contest doesn't end until at least 1:16 PM CST (28 minutes from now)...but, I may let it run a little longer, since I'm signing offline for a bit right now.

Contest is closed to entries. Noone guessed the correct total, but GFOX was closest with his guess of 99. I have 102 different players/coaches in my collection.

Thanks to all for playing, and congrats to all the winners!
