Summer Movie Wager 2017

Postby Tyler » Mon May 01, 2017 1:24 pm

NEED GUESSES BY THURSDAY!!!!!

Correctly guess the top 10 grossing movies of the summer.
Box Office Mojo says "The Summer Season is defined as the first Friday in May through Labor Day Weekend."

Getting number 1 or number 10 dead-on gets you 13 points (each).
The rest of the scoring goes like this:

10 points for numbers 2-9 dead-on
7 points if your pick was only one spot away from where it ended up
5 points if it was two spots away
3 points if your pick is anywhere in the Top 10
The scoring is tabulated so that you get the SINGLE HIGHEST point value for each pick- that is, if you get number ten right, you don’t get 13+3, you only get 13.

2013 Winner - bbous13 with 50pts
2014 Winner - Huss Buss with 55pts
2015 Winner - Wags83 with 52pts
2016 Winner- bmyoungs with 42pts

Thanks Danny for getting it in already. I don't think there is a guarantee #1 like there have been some years.

I feel fairly confident in my movie selections but not at all confident in the order in which I put them.

Pretty solid list, but I think you missed a HUGE one.

Would if I could. I have to teach origami today. Maybe YOU could come here during lunch and visit and learn AND get my list.

I'm pretty sure I know what you're talking about. I might be kidding myself thinking it won't be as huge (or I might just be hoping that because it's dumb).

Did you send me the list? I haven't seen it.

I narrowed it down to 12 that I think could be in, but doing the order is rough. I compared previous franchise movies and hope that helps me.
