    Let's do it again! Same rules as the last wager.

    I bet 40 credits that Episodes VIII's first scenes does not start Luke and Rey on the planet "Ahch-to"

    This is hardly a wager. Ahch-to is a hidden planet, and any first scene we see on it will be of Luke and Rey at peace. Every Star Wars film has started with either an establishing shot of the bad guys, or an intense action moment. Never of the good guys taking a break from fighting. If anything, Luke and Rey will be a sidewipe cutaway after the First Order is shown doing something ominous and obviously evil.
    I'm plopping 40 on NO.

    It's hard to argue with that logic...I'll bet 40 for "no" too .

    As acting game master it'd be very helpful if you could when you make a bet add @Duke Groundrunner to your post to any of the gambling threads when placing a bet to help me keep track of all the bets made.

    I'll go with "No" for 40 Alex.

    Every Star Wars movie so far has opened with a shot of a Starship and planet/celestial body.

    ANH - Star Destroyer and Tatooine
    ESB - Star Destroyer and planet/moon in background
    ROTJ - Star Destroyer and Endor

    All Bad Guys

    TPH - Republic Cruiser and Naboo
    AOTC - Padme's Ship and Coruscant
    ROTS - Venator Class Star Destroyer and Coruscant

    All Good Guys

    TFA - Star Destroyer Finalizer and Jakku moon.

    So far, bad guys.

    I understand the desire to look at past trends for predicting the future, but thus far this does not seem to be a good strategy for the Sequel Trilogy. The teaser poster is nothing like previous SW posters. A lot of people expected the movie's title to start with or contain an action word, like "Strikes" or "Attack", but it does not. The title card is red, which has only happened for ROTJ in the past, which hardly makes a trend. It is entirely possible that this movie will start differently than other SW films.
