  1. HANG ON……I was under the impression the Twilight pre-HAGEBOC was simply for practice and that the bonus was accepted but the points were simply a warm-up. So as to remain ‘pure’ in my next win, I refrained. Why are there scores at the bottom?

  2. It’s a warm-up, but we’ve always included the points from past warm-ups into the main competitions. I admit I wasn’t really clear on that, likely assuming that everyone could read my mind and/or specifically remember protocol from previous contests.

    I’ll leave it up to the group. The bonus is going to stand no matter what.

  3. I guess I read your mind, because I understood it was to be one point for guessing the closest weekend haul, and a half point (or alternative) for the midnight shows. Consider this sentence: “let’s kick off the contest with a quick single-point preliminary round”

  4. I know you mentioned it…but I assumed the points would just be for fun and stay on that post. A ‘preliminary round’ where there are points awarded, but they don’t carry over.

  5. I’m winning!

    But for the good of all that’s holy I will happily sacrifice my point if filmman is forbidden from using sexual innuendo ever again.

  6. Doesn’t Rise of the Guardians open this week, the kid’s movie?

    Guardians: 40 million

    Bonus 1: More
    Bonus 2: Twilight

  7. Oh, and here’s the first sentence from the Twilight HAGEBOC:

    “While HAGEBOC will officially begin next week,”

  8. The deadline extension was for Slim only correct? Surprised to see only five entries, but I’m wondering if the others think the deadline is noon tomorrow for them as well.

    Regardless, happy thanksgiving to you all!
