Sun Spiderman
5x Big Stick
PotC or Mummy

and...isn't paying off. I was hoping Baby Driver would have the best ratio, but it's going to be The Big Stick.

Looking like Meg will have her first weekly win!

I don't think you had the single highest combo, but you may have been within like $2million of it. Great job!

For the record... you've copied me twice that I remember. I offered to change this time but you said it would have been cheating.

How do you see the other people in the group's picks? It always looks empty to me when I'm picking...

You can't see the other picks until Friday at 11am central.

I'm glad the person who beat me understand the game...NOT!

Yeah it took me a few weeks to even realize that you can pick the same movie for multiple blocks. I don't have time to read rules!

This was probably the closest week we've ever had. That was nuts.

It was basically if you spent 95% of your money on movies you were going to be within $3million of everyone.

This week will be even more difficult. So... with Dunkirk being the big movie to release... again, another movie that seems to be more fitting for Spring or Fall.

Purple_Hayes, Wilkins, and I get way into this. We get so excited every Friday to see everyone's picks that we send them to each other early and pinky promise that we won't change them after seeing what the competition picked.

A lot of difference strategies this week. The best players in the game did Dunkirk, 5x Big Sick, 47 Meters Down.
I could see Big Sick having the best ratio this week and if you did 5x that is an extra $10million.

Get with the program bmyoungs! That's why that week Baby Driver came out did so well for me. That was 8x2 million just because it was the movie with the best cost to revenue ratio.

Every week there is a movie poster with a little star in the corner. That's the winner.
