56th TA77.net Pick em' Invitational (Enter by 1/11)

Post by kensrs » 06 Jan 2020, 09:25

Congrats to Chang for winning number 55

All yes/no questions.
If you enter by 1/09 and win you get 2 videos, if all right 6 videos
If you enter by 10/27 and win you get 1 videos, if all right 3 videos
Last chance to enter is 1/11 at 12pm PST

You guys hit 17 entries you win a free video, my entry is included.
If you hit 17 by 1/8, I'll give you 4 extra free videos on youtube.
If you hit 17 by 1/9, I'll give you 3 extra free videos on youtube.
If you hit 17 by 1/10, I'll give you 2 extra free videos on youtube.
If you get 17 by deadline, I'll give you 1 extra free video on youtube.

Here is what I am offering this time:
1. If over 1/2 of you beat me, you get an extra free video from me.
2. If we hit the number players listed above this week, I will release an extra free video for you guys, this is super easy number for us to hit.
3. Anyone who wins the contest and goes 8 for 8 will win 5 free videos of your choice that are already out. I might not have everyone on file but should have most for you.

So you guys have every reason possible to enter.

Here is the schedule for this weeks contest, just pick Y or N for each question.
Whoever gets most picks right wins, if there is a tiebreaker we go to the tie-breaker question.
If we are tied after the tie-break question, I will award the win to whoever posted their picks first on this thread.
All entries before the first game will be counted towards contest numbers, any picks after the first game will not be eligible to win. Unless otherwise specified above.
My entry does not count towards your goal so if goal is XX entries, you need to get to XX entries + me to get any free videos. Unless otherwise specified above.

NO CHEATING, I CAN SEE IP ADDRESSES SO DON'T ENTER MORE THEN ONCE, IF YOU GUYS CANT GET ENOUGH PEOPLE INTO A FREE CONTEST TO WIN FREE VIDEOS, IDK WHAT TO SAY. JUST DONT CHEAT!!!!

NEW TO THIS CONTEST: Only the first 10 questions count, UNLESS one of them does not happen for some reason. For example a game is cancelled, then the 1st tiebreaker would act as the 10th question and count. If that were to happen, tiebreaker #2 would be the first tie-breaker and if there was a tie for some reason after that first tie breaker, whoever answered first would be declared the winner.

6 - eyegug
6 - kensrs
5 - Chewprthdog
4 - Artibus
4 - Chewie212
3 - Chang
3 - chennaibar

Came down to tiebreakers betwen eyegug and me
First tiebreaker was: Will the team that scores last win the Super Bowl? (Y or N)
Answer was Yes as KC scored last
Eyegug and I said yes

Second tiebreaker was heads or tails, it was tails but we both guessed heads

Third tiebreaker is who gets them in first but I don't count for that one so it was a tie, we are co-champs of the 56th and he gets a free video
