For i.hope it's not about winning a game, but winning with a 100 pt differential.

Well, at least I'm currently best of the rest for the year.

True, but I always figured any advantage from predicting late is offset by the disadvantages.


Clearly not in this instance. He is third.

Well, if you think it's an advantage, you're free to predict late next time and see if it helps. Every other example we have goes the other way. Just ask Jack Sparrow! He also predicted late and he's in last place! :)

Avengers moved up a week to April. Should we predict it?

In this game? No way. If in the May/June game, then yes ... just start it a week earlier.

True. Let's start the next game a week early and get Avengers there. This game it would be too much of a rush. The release date anyways is 27-April so it shouldn't be that big of a stretch. We could still predict by 24th or 25th as I highly doubt reviews will be out before Wednesday now with the WW day and date release.

We can predict by 20th April, which is seven days before the game starts (like always, right?).

Pretty much. I missed out on a lot of films by predicting late.

Was there a title mistake? The scores don't show any signs of Groucho taking the lead?

A bigger April Fool's would have been "Algren takes the lead". But kudos on doing one anyway. :thumbsup:

Well, I figured if I used myself, no one could get angry at me for getting their hopes up. :)

I've been holding off updating, thinking that "Humanity Bureau" would get just one more review so it can get a rating...
