My dailies were close to Beast numbers but the weekend range for it was much lower. Regardless I don't think I will get any of those four...ugh.

For the Risk Boosters, Hunger games got only 62.89% of the top ten, so the answer is no. Friday gross accumulated for only 44.395% for the weekend gross, so the answer is no.

The Beast got 4 points total for the weekend. Let's see the challenges.

SolC9 - 13 (by 3 points and is successful, so he gets 6 points added to his score). He only missed Night Before, falling one shy of a perfect game, which would have gotten him an additional 5 points.

i.hope - 8 (by 1 point and is successful, so he gets 3 points added to his score).

Proud Ryu - 8 (by 1 point and is successful, so he gets 2 points added to his score).

Omni - 7 (by 1 point and is successful, so he gets 2 points added to his score).

Jack Sparrow - 6 (by 1 point and is successful, so he gets 3.5 points added to his score).

stuffp - 4 (by 1 point and failed, so he loses the 4 points).

Algren - 2 (by 1 point and failed, the risk boosters got to him, so he loses the two points).

Here are the adjusted scores.

SolC9 - 19
i.hope - 11
Proud Ryu - 10
Jack Sparrow - 9.5
Omni - 9
The BEAST - 4
stuffp - 0
Algren - 0
zwackerm - X


Wow, looks like Solc9 will make a big jump here. Let's so to the leaderboard.

At the half way mark, here are the scores.

Jack Sparrow - 44
i.hope - 44
SolC9 - 41
Omni - 30
The BEAST - 25
zwackerm - 25
Proud Ryu - 21
stuffp - 21
Algren - 14

Wow, it is now a three way race. SolC9 is really catching up. Ryu is making his move as well. Thanksgiving game is coming up, and since this is a game for giving thanks, the lower seeds will have specials just for them...

BEAST: "Yes, the specials are on TV, ha ha."

Okay. Anyway, details coming up in a few moments.

Thanksgiving games is up. Here is what you have to predict.

(3-day weekends on all films only)
The Good Dinosaur (range - 9 million)
Creed (range - 5 million)
Victor Frankenstein (range - 4 million)
Spotlight (range - 1 million)
Carol (range - 0.2 million)
Legend (range - 0.1 million)
The Night Before (range - 1 million)
Secret in their Eyes (range - 1 million)

Risk Boosters (not mandatory, but special incentives are involved for correct risk boosters).
Hunger Games (range - 10 million)
Spectre (range - 2 million)
Peanuts Movie (range - 2 million)


That's right, limited releases as regular predictions and regular films for risk boosters. The reason why I said special incentives for Risk Boosters is because for this game, the each Risk Boosters is worth a different amount based on scores. If Jack Sparrow, i.hope and SolC9 get them right, they will get 2 points for each Risk Boosters, if Omni down to stuffp get them right, they will get 4 points for each Risk Booster correct. For each one Algren gets right, he will get 5 points for each. For each wrong one, it will be two points off for all.

THE BEAST: "See, I told you Thanksgiving is for generosity. I need all the help I can get."

Go stuff yourself Beast. Anyway, the predictions are due Wednesday at 11:59 pm pacific time. Get those predictions in on time, and have a Happy Thanksgiving, and don't overeat on the turkey like the Beast will.

Thanksgiving Game scores are in.

Proud Ryu - 16
The BEAST - 10
Omni - 8
zwackerm - 8
SolC9 - 6
Jack Sparrow - 5
stuffp - 3
i.hope - 2
Algren - (-5)

Risk Boosters really helped Ryu a lot as he is the only one that got all of them right, giving him 12 points extra. Algren got all of his wrong, resulting in a negative score. All in all, the lower seeds took a little advantage of the inflated scores for risk boosters. Let see's if it shook up the charts.

With only 5 games to go, here are the standings.

Jack Sparrow - 49
SolC9 - 47
i.hope - 46
Omni - 38
Proud Ryu - 37
The BEAST - 35
zwackerm - 33
stuffp - 24
Algren - 9

It is still a three way race, but Ryu is gaining big time, and Omni, and gasp, even the BEAST are making their moves. Looks like the risk booster rule is keeping most people in the race. You know what can mess up people's scores, the next game. Next game is the infamous penalty for guessing game. Let's see what we have to predict...

Here comes the infamous penalty for guessing game.

Krampus (range - 5 million)
The Letters (range - 3 million)
Hunger Games (range - 5 million)
Good Dinosaur (range - 4 million)
Creed (range - 4 million)
Spectre (range - 2 million)
The Peanuts Movie (range - 2 million)
The NIght Before (range - 1.5 million)
Spotlight (range - 1 million)
Brooklyn (range - 1 million)

The ranges may look easy, but do not be fooled, this is the infamous penalty for guessing game. That's right, any wrong answer, you will lose two points. But for each one right, you get two points. Think of this as all risk boosters. You have to predict at least half of them. As usual, predictions are due on Friday at noon pacific time. Watch those ranges, and save the BEAST some left over turkey, he can use some more.

THE BEAST: "Yes, and all of you can use more humiliation."

Whoa, well, get them in.

And I just barely missed with a high end of 12.8.

Similarly, I missed Peanuts by 0.1 with a low end of 9.8. :pinch:

The Beast reveals all.

The Letters (range - 3 million) - 0-3
Hunger Games (range - 5 million) - 18-23
Good Dinosaur (range - 4 million) - 16-20
Creed (range - 4 million) - 13.5-17.5
Spectre (range - 2 million) - 4.5-6.5
The Peanuts Movie (range - 2 million) - 3-5
The NIght Before (range - 1.5 million) - 3.7-5.2
Spotlight (range - 1 million) - 2-3
Brooklyn (range - 1 million) - 1.7-2.7

The Beast is playing it safe by not predicting Krampus due to it unpredictability. He should be playing it safe...

BEAST: "I'll finish your line, I should be playing it safe by eating less leftover turkey."

You should have said spoiler alert! Predictions are due tomorrow at noon, get them in.

The BEAST - 14
Jack Sparrow - 14
i.hope - 12
Proud Ryu - 12
SolC9 - 8
zwackerm - 8
Omni - 6
stuffp - 0 (X)
Algren - -8

The Beast not predicting Krampus worked out, but it also worked out for the top scorers too. The Good Dinosaur was the only stumper for most. stuffp did not predict, so a strike for him. Let's see how it affects the score.

Only 4 more games left.

Jack Sparrow - 63
i.hope - 58
SolC9 - 55
The BEAST - 49
Proud Ryu - 49
Omni - 44
zwackerm - 41
stuffp - 24
Algren - 1

Sparrow pads his lead a bit. The Beast jumps in the standings, in a position not unreachable. The next game will be the last BEAST challenge of the year, but this time, there is a twist to it.

Films to predict.

In the Heart of the Sea (range - 3 million)
Legend (range - .2 million)
Hunger Games (range - 1 million)
Krampus (range - 1 million)
Good Dinosaur (range - 1 million)
Creed (range - 1 million)
Spotlight (range - 1 million)


Only 7 films to predicts. Well, it is a boring weekend, but what will make this more interesting is the way I will do the BEAST Challenge. In this challenge, you have to beat the BEAST. If you do, you will get 50% more to your score, but if you fail, you will not get the points (this way, the top three will still be leading if they fail). If it's a tie, then it's a push.

THE BEAST: "More like push overs."

Whoa. Anyway, predictions are due on Friday at noon pacific time. BTW, it challenge is on for everyone, you have no choice. So good luck and give a beast his bottle.

Oh my, I didn't even check how I've been doing in this. With only 1 point after all the hard work I put into it ;) I might as well not bother any more.
