    Declare us all winners for being optimistic.

    i think you either have to give it to the lowest bidder, declare the whole thing null and void, or give it through the end of next Sunday.

    i vote through the end of next Sunday and if there's still no winner, void it.

    NO. Have you not heard, the sky fell with Solo. Thusly all other movies have been cancelled.


    :D

    I am sorry for the delay, life 'n stuff has got me all tied up. I'll accept guesses a little later than usual, but please get any in ASAP.

    I vote the highest bidder wins. :p

    In all likelihood no game points will be awarded for the week. Sticking to the rules may be best here. The only reason it's up for discussion is, well, Star Wars!

    As for the fun prizes, I've had to adjust on the fly but I think I've figured all that out too. Like I've mentioned before, a hectic schedule has me scrambling to play catch up here, but by Sunday we should be back to normal.

    As for this weekend:

    Action point: $9m
    Adrift: $12m
    Upgrade: $6m

    I’ll say $3.2m for each of them and all Solo points are null and void as no one was anywhere near.

    Perhaps an addendum rule should be that a winner is only awarded if within +/- $10m range of the reported figure? ;)
