    you can wait until I replace the pic with the latest guess splashes on it - but be aware that it will be a quiet replacement at a random time (may not be for another two days yet - choice is yours), so keep on top of post #2 ;-) [that goes for everyone]

    the games are not literally in the picture, I just know what grid location they are in - does that help you any?

    @2/0

    I think you should really tidy up those first two posts. It's kind of lazy/sloppy not to... And also update the picture with the guesses so far. Why? Just to make sure everyone sees how your fun game is working in practice. You then don't need to update it for a few days.

    LOL. Great fun. I do think though it would have been cooler if the game code was on a piece of paper somewhere in the picture, and you would then show us a zoom-in at the end! e.g. open a door or window, move a car, or just zoom in onto the grass... :D

    PS. How do we know you wont "cheat" on this? You could keep everyone guessing to the very last square if you wanted to! How do we know you have even chosen the correct spot yet, and will stick to it? Perhaps PM the answer to the w1z or someone else here in the forum. Put it in a password protected ZIP or something. Just to keep this game straight.

    Oh, and are you sure about this 48hr wait? That kind of drags this on... according to my earlier post, if every 48hrs rather than 24hr, then the average game might drag on from 10 to 20 days. yawn. You should target this game to start and finish within a week.

    Top man

    If he's prepared to take the time out to do this then fair play - great idea!

    I'll go for

    W-16-block 2

    FF-5-block 4

    no you! lol. I dont give a hoot about the games. But it's fun to play along :). However, what I can see is that 2/0 can play this on and on for as long or short as he wants, and just says, "ok, you won" whenever and to whoever he wants. OK, so who cares if he does this? Well, IMO, if you are going to run a competition or game of some sort, keep it straight, or you will end up getting these sorts of things banned on TPU. :pimp:

    2/0 is giving away something for free. I, for one, appreciate that.
    These little contests are for fun and to get people involved. The actual prize is usually secondary, especially if you don't have great odds of winning.

    There is no reason for 2/0 not to be honest about who wins.

    Also ... coming up with contest ideas is not easy. I try to get creative with my little contests and sometimes you get good participation, sometimes not.
    I like the fact he is attempting something different. Whether it works out well remains to be seen, but it's a novel approach and pretty interesting.
