    you and Rocky need to pick different numbers if you both want to play, though.
    one of you can be $163.51 and the other needs to be $163.52 or something.

    Our Lord and Commander accepted it. :p Just see us as one bet and you only need to give out one price. I don't want the price anyway (unless it's something really cool). #ObeyingOrders

    You're both right. ;)

    I'll keep it listed as a team guess, though for the sake of the game and its integrity any potential points / Cantina prizes to be awarded will go to @NinjaRen only.

    And besides, even if you are officially-unofficially a team, you could just enter individually and double your chances at winning... :cool:

    So are we not following the "cutthroat" Price is Right strategy of going 1$ higher than someone to "knock them out"?
    --- Double Post Merged, May 23, 2018, Original Post Date: May 23, 2018 ---
    Hmmmm.....I am hearing some stuff now through my Box Office channels.....I think all of you may be shooting high this time.

    Put me down for $130M for SOLO

    I'd actually be in favor of something like this, since we were all (unfortunately) so far off and we would have no winners for Solo. What does everyone else think?
