Post Split Decision X: The Final Season (Farewell)
Now that Christmas is near, it's time for the Final Season, that's right, Final Season for a game I have ran for 10 years, but now it will end. This is

Split Decision X: The Final Season

That's right, this is the last season not because it has low playership, but I am moving on with film editing and other projects. And now that I have retired from predicting, this will be the last game I am running. But since I promised earlier this year that I would be back, I am back for one last time.

In case you don't know how to play, here are the rules. For each given film, you will be given films to predict the weekend gross for, but instead of giving a gross, you would give a range that you think the final gross will fall under. For instance, an example prediction would be

Magnificent Seven (range 5 million)

A prediction might be: 35 million to 40 million.

If the final gross falls within the range, you will get a point, if not, then no point.

The special elements have varied between season to season.
Season 2 brought us the Risk Booster (which will be back regularly)
Season 3 brought us Bid a Range (it's returning, but only a couple of times)
Season 4 brought us The Terminator (partially returning, but recycled into Midweek Showdown)
Season 5 brought us The Midweek Showdown (It's here)
Season 6 brought us The Stopper (Yes, it's coming, but only once)
Season 7 brought us Stump the Mod (Not returning, since creator is not predicting)
Season 8 brought us The Chase (Not returning, same reason)
Season 9 brought us Outrun the Beast (Ditto)
What will be new for this final season. Well its: Share the Wealth.

For selected games, a player will spend their points to team up with another player and whatever that player scores, they will get their points to add on to what they scored in the round. Confused, well, Let's say whatever points you have, you will spend 5 points to team up with someone. You will get your score, along with the points with the player you teamed up with. Let's say the player you team with scores 7 points, that would be a 2 point profit, but if their score was something like 3, you would have a 2 point loss. Get it, so it may help or hurt your score.

But where is the BEAST in all this, well, this is another new element because this time, he will not be the enemy, but he will be your friend.

BEAST: "Hello my friends, would you like some candy corn."

Okay Beast that was creepy. Anyhow, this element is called: Hall Pass.

Let's say if you don't have time to predict, but you don't want to lose the game, every player will be given one hall pass to use. If used, the Beast will send in the predictions for you, and will get the points he gets added to your score. Multiple players can use the hall pass in one game, but it will not be used in special holiday games, or big scoring games, only on regular 12 point games. You see, I told you the Beast if your friend.

The game is scheduled to start on October 14th, and will go on until Christmas Day weekend, and the winner gets a DVD of their very own choice. Are you ready to join, because this will be your last chance. This should be a fun farewell season. Spread the word and let's go out with a bang.

For the Final time, I can say.

Let the Games Begin

Our Special Guest: the Beast will do the intros.

Beast: Thank you, at you have the guts to retire, unlike Jimmy Fallon. Anyway, let's meet the players.

Algren - Not exactly a rookie (since he joined late last year) but not exactly the model for the title either. (Boooooooo)
Chippy - The Master of the Dailies. And I will get daily track of your mother. (ohhhhhhhhh)
i.hope - The season 2 and 7 winner, and hopes to win the triple crown...on his teeth (crickets)
Jack Sparrow - The fast starts get ruined on his excessive use of rum and terrible sequels (audience silence)
Omni - Season 1 and 5 winner, but should have a bus at the end of his name (cringe)
Rev - The guy who still lives in his mom's basement (audience silence), because he is always in the cellar (Oh, I get it).
SolC9 - The first triple crown winner, with his wins in Season 3, 6 and 9. He must be a little horse (throw tomatoes)
And last is Stuffp - Back for a second round, and ready to get out of the toilet. Because he likes to Stuff Pee (Audience hisses) Okay I give up, back to you host.


Thank you Pauly Shore. Anyway, details on the first game coming soon. In the meantime, there is no sign of Proud Ryu (The Season 4 winner). Oh well, the games will begin in just a moment.

Post Re: Split Decision X: The Final Season (Game 1 Begins)
The first game will begin.

Here is what you have to predict, and the ranges you are given to predict with.

The Accountant (range - 5 million)
Kevin Hart: What Now? (range - 3 million)
Max Steel (range - 2 million)
Girl on a Train (range - 3 million)
Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children (range - 2 million)
Deepwater Horizon (range - 2 million)
The Magnificent Seven (range - 1.5 million)
Storks (range - 1.5 million)
The Birth of a Nation (range - 1 million)
Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life (range - 1 million)


Pretty standard game to begin with. Your predictions will be due on Thursday at 11:59 pm pacific time. Do not be late. Send your predictions through private message only. Remember, there will be a penalty for giving a range besides the one that is given (for instance, if a 2 million range is given, and you give a 3 million range, you will get a one point penalty and the prediction will not count). Each one with worth one point each, so keep your eyes on the prize and let the games begin.

Please, no giving out scores before they are revealed. You don't want to ruin the surprise now don't you?

Anyway, here are the results for game 1.


SolC9 - 8
Algren - 7
Jack Sparrow - 6
Omni - 6
Chippy - 5
i.hope - 5
Proud Ryu - 5
Rev - 4
stuffp - 4


Nice starts to the final season so far. Then again, this game was pretty easy, the next ones will be harder. Anyway, some interesting notes: Everyone seemed to struggle with the openers, as only stuffp got The Accountant and SolC9 was the only one with Kevin's Hart, which gave him the edge. Game 2 results coming soon.

Surprise! Nothing matters.

Actually, I got the Kevin Hart range right too, but sure this is your game so lie to the people.

You are right, you did. Your score remains the same though.
