    Ha! To be fair though, you joined the game in the 2nd or 3rd week last time out and STILL won! ;)

    As @Meister Yoda said, it's +/- $10m, which is obviously far easier with smaller movies - big bucks stuff can be more of a challenge. Last year for example when we were guessing for No Way Home opening weekend, Meister was the 'closest' with $213m... which was some $57m short. Then the following week the 'closest' guess for Matrix Resurrections was $20m too much, so in both cases no-one got any points for those movies :D
