    Not unless he doesn't want to. His bet works with this thread.

    I respectfully disagree. This thread's wager is for TFA. Wayne's bet changes it to the entire ST. Now we'd have to wait until 2019 to get the results. Also, the original wager states that Plagueis's name being mentioned doesn't count, whereas part of Wayne's bet hinges on Plagueis's name being mentioned.
    See my confusion?
    Sorry if I'm being annoying, I just feel these things would be altering the bet that people have already committed to.

    If @Wayne wants to start a new bet that Plagueis will be present in the ST as a whole, he's fine to do that. For now, look at his bet as just Plagueis's name will be mentioned in TFA.

    Most of our bets are setup that a name mention of Plagueis in TFA doesn't count ? So is he making a wager with people other than us?

    I think with the ones in this thread, but he extended his bet to be over the whole ST. If Plagueis is mentioned in TFA, @Wayne will be on the winning side.
    So if he wants to start a new bet to fill the entire ST, such as "I bet Plagueis will be the main villain of the Entire ST" or something along those lines.

    good point. people made their wager under the impression that a name drop of Plagueis doesn't count. Wayne's bet nullifies that? I think folks are going to take issue with that.

    I think we can all agree that too much info is unnecessary. Yes x will happen or No x will not happen answers are enough.

    @Jedi MD's original bet what that Plagueis will be in the movie, mention doesn't count. @Wayne's bet is that Plagueis will be mentioned in TFA.
    If Plagueis is only mentioned, Wayne will win the bet, along with those who betted saying he will be mentioned.

    In the original bet Wayne can't win because Jedi MD's bet mentions are not applicable. His bet is too far outside Jedi MD daffy72 and my bet . If the character of Plagueis is not in the movie but is only mentioned or referenced we still win. Anything outside that would be changing the bet.

    I'm betting 40 officially that Plagueis will not be in TFA.

    Edit: This is my first wager...to whom do i transfer the credits?

    See, I read this as Plagueis is not in the movie, and if his name is mentioned in the movie It doesn't count as Plagueis being in the movie. He has to appear physically on the screen.The mere mentioning of his name doesn't count as the bet. You can't wager on the name drop part (for this thread.)
    We are either betting that Plagueis appears physically on screen or he doesn't.

    Perhaps OP can clarify? It seems a few of us have interpreted it differently (nobody's fault, it happens.)

    Transfer to Wuher.

    Yeah i'm not sure a reference should count. I was thinking he may be referenced but my bet was in regards to whether he will be physically present in TFA.

    And thanks. I'll do that now.

    As was mine. They could mention Plagueis for any number of reasons.

    He is NOT AROUND anymore though.
    I guess the only sticky wicket would be if they showed him in a flashback or a hologram. They would be showing the past. I would think if it was a flashback we still win? Right?
    That's like saying Laurence Olivier was in Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow
    He wasn't -really- though. He was just a hologram.

    I doubt he will even be mentioned again though. Look how important Tarkin was in the Empire. That poor bastard never gets a mention.

    @Darby is correct in his interpretation of the bet. Mentioning Plagueis does not count and referencing him would still mean that those betting against Plagueis would win. One caveat though, if another character talks directly to an unseen character and calls him Darth Plagueis than that would count as Plagueis being in the movie although no physical character is. Just a mere naming of Plagueis does not. I hope that clears things up

    Okay thanks @Jedi MD!
    @Wayne and @catfish are out unless they change their bets to says Plagueis won't be in the movie.
