Post Split Decision IX: The Beast Returns (Winner Announced)
It's Halloween time. You know what that means. It's time for the Christmas game, known as...

Split Decision

In case you don't know how to play, the basic gameplay is when predicting a movie, you give a range instead of a straight up number. Like for example.

Gone Girl (range - 5 million) - 35 - 40 million

If the actual number falls within that range, you will get a point, if not, you will not get the point. Don't forget, that I use the actual number to determine range, meaning that if the number was 34,999,999 or 40,000,001, then it is declared wrong.

The Risk Booster will be back. But more importantly, it also marks the return of....The Beast!!! (boo). That's right, the reigning champ is back and is ready for another crown.

The Beast: "I guess that makes you all the returning chumps." boooooo.

Wow, he is cocky. Well anyway, The Beast will not play the first or last game. Some of you may have pointed out the unfair advantage the Beast had last year, now it's going to be different. The Beast will be penalized for wrong risk boosters. And this year, there is new element that will give you a chance to keep distance from the Beast, it is known as...Outrun the Beast. On selected days, you will have a chance to try to beat the beast during a round. How is works is that based on your score from the previous round, if you decide to challenge the Beast, you would have to beat the Beast by two points. If you do, then you get the points you collected from the last round and add it again to your score, along with the score you got from the present week. If not, then not only do you not get the extra point, but you will not collect the points from the present round. There is another catch to this. You have an option to beat the beast by one point, if you do, they you get half the points you got from the previous round. Here is a bigger one, if you want to try to beat the beast by three points, then you will get double the points added from the previous round to the current round. Got it. It will be easier once the round plays. Just like the Chase game show.

Game will start next week. The winner will get a DVD of their choice, and will take pride in finally dethroning the Beast from the crowd. If you want revenge, sign up.

The game is alot easier than described. You just have to give a range of where the weekend gross will end up (like if the range of 5 million, an example of a prediction would be 25 - 30 million). If the gross falls within the range, you get a point. You usually predict ten films per game.

I don't think that's where the confusion lies. It's this "beast" crap that just complicates what seems like could be an enjoyable game.

Let the Games Begin.

Here are your Contestants

i.hope - Season 2 and 7 winner. He hopes to be the first 3 time winner.
Jack Sparrow - Didn't join last season, but he is back. Looking for his first victory.
Omni - Season 1 and 5 winner. Looks to be the first three peat winner, and this time he is serious.
Rev - The consistent cellar dweller of the bunch. He hopes to get out of last place like the Astro's did.
SolC9 - Season 3 and 6 winner. Was the runner up the last two seasons and hopes for revenge and a third first place finish.
stuffp - One of the two rookies joining our ranks. I may have a field day trying to spell his name right when reminding him to predict.
zwackerm - Another rookie with an even harder to spell name. Will always be last in terms of players alphabetically.
And last, and least is The BEAST - The victory from last season, with some assistance of unfairness and steroids and hopes to win and help the moderator save his money like a scrooge.

Nice, more players than last year (but no sign of season 4 winner Ryu). I hope this is a trend for the big 10th season. Details on the first game, coming in just a moment.

Game 1

Here are the films to predict

Goosebumps (range - 4 million)
Bridge of Spies (range - 4 million)
Crimson Peak (range - 4 million)
Woodlawn (range - 2 million)
The Martian (range - 2 million)
Hotel Transylvania 2 (range - 2 million)
Pan (range - 2 million)
The Intern (range - 1 million)
Sicario (range - 1 million)
Maze Runner (range - 1 million)

Nothing special, just an easy way to start the game. Predictions are due on Friday at noon pacific time. PM the predictions to me. No public sharing of your predictions please, it will spoil the game.

The BEAST - "And I will spoil your chances of winning."

Just ignore him folks, he won't play this round, he will chase you for the second round. There will be a one point deduction for every time you give me a range that is not the amount that is given (like if you put a 3 million range for a film in which I only asked for a 2 million range, got it). Watch those ranges and let the games begin.

How are we doing with this? Look forward to the first round results.

By my own account I might have scored just a measly 2 points or something.

Here are the Results for game one.

i.hope - 6
SolC9 - 6
Jack Sparrow - 5
Omni - 5
zwackerm - 4
stuffp - 3
rev - 0 (x)
The BEAST - n/a

The scores are quite close for the first round. Easy right. Now it gets more interesting, not only will there be risk boosters, but also, the BEAST is loose. That's right, he is in the game now. That being said...The Chase is on!

Films to predict for this weekend.

Steve Jobs (range - 4 million)
The Last Witch Hunter (range - 3 million)
Paranormal Activity 3D (range - 3 million)
Jem and the Holograms (range - 2 million)
Rock the Kasbah (range - 2 million)
Goosebumps (range - 2 million)
The Marian (range - 2 million)
Bridge of Spies (range - 2 million)
Crimson Peak (range - 2 million)
Hotel Transylvania 2 (range - 2 million)

Risk Booster (Remember, this is not mandatory, but you can predict at your own risk)

Yes or No? Will Steve Jobs hit 20 million.


There is the second game. But this time, we have a new player. Here on the Chase you player, unleash...THE BEAST.

boooooooo.

Beast: "Thank you, you are only encouraging me. I will make sure that the other players will be rocked by my kasbah."

Ohhhh, lame catch phrase. Anyway, the Beast will now play the game. If you want to accuse of cheating, don't worry, the Beast will reveal his predictions prior to the deadline, so that you all can compare your scores to the Beast. Remember, keep these scores to yourself until the scores are tallied. Anyway, PM me the predictions before noon pacific time. Watch your ranges, and watch out for the Beast, and get those predictions in.

It wasn't this form of cheating that we were worried about in the last game Scottie ;)

Is it too late for me to join (albeit with 2 strikes)? I was out on vacation and didn't know the game had started.
