***Thanksgiving NFL Contest! Congrats Wolf-Dog!!!***
 
3 Attachment(s)
This is my first go at a contest, been awhile since the last one. I thought it would be fun to have one for Thanksgiving. This will be how I give back my thanks to the forum, since it has unknowingly given me alot in the last 8-10 years. Rules will be simple, and ANYONE can play. One entry per person, and you CANNOT edit your post after it has been submitted. ANY EDITED POSTS WILL BE VOIDED! The contest starts as soon as I post this thread and ends at noon ET on Thanksgiving. The prize will be a standing liberty quarter and 10 clad Ike dollars (pictures to come). Im also thinking of throwing some mystery items in there :present: Scuba (RIP Robert!) gave me about 40 Ike dollars for the gift exchange last year, and I think it would be nice to pay some of them forward and back to other forum members. You must guess the scores of all three games, and add all six numbers together. For example:

Bears-20 =30 points
Lions-10

Raiders-17 =47 points =111 total points
Cowboys-30

Bills-13 =34 points
Saints-21

Another example:

Bears win- 30 points
Cowboys win- 47 points
Saints win- 34 points

111 total points.

It does not have to match this format, but It should look somewhat close to the examples above. I'm not eligible to win, but I'm going to use my guesses above just for kicks. Please do your best to not make duplicate guesses, meaning dont copy someone else's answers. If somehow we have 2 winners, with the EXACT same guesses, the one who posted their guess first wins. If NOONE guesses the exact number, I will choose who is closest. I will contact the winner either late Thursday/ or early Friday to obtain a shipping address. I.will o ly ship within the U.S. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them here, or PM me. Happy Thanksgiving, and good luck!!! :turkey: :happythanks: :pilgrim: :turkeyday: :goodluck:

Edit*** I'm adding a bonus incentive, if someone guesses the exact score, guesses the correct teams to win, AND the correct amount of points for each game I will add a walking liberty half dollar to your winnings.

No problem there, but to be eligible for the bonus walker half, I'll need to know which teams you think will win each of the 3 games. Appreciate your kind words and participation!

102-Randy
105-GKL
111-ME
116-Pumptech
118-Scotty dog
120-Ugadigger

cellrdwellr 11-25-2021 12:14 PM

Entries have ended, good luck everyone!

cellrdwellr 11-25-2021 04:04 PM

First game

Bears win 16-14 for a total of 30 points. It doesnt look like anyone guessed the exact same score, but ben_ks was closest with 32 total points. We still have 2 more games, so good luck everyone!

cellrdwellr 11-25-2021 08:34 PM

Second Game

The Raiders upset the cowboys 36-33 for a total of 69 points. Add the 30 points from the first game and we have a total of 99 points so far. Game 3 is underway, I will try to stay up and update the thread after the game, but no promises :laughing: if not I will crown the winner in the morning. Good luck and hope everyone enjoyed their holidays!

I'd like to point out that I did my math wrong, and the total should be 133. Sorry about that.

cellrdwellr 11-25-2021 11:21 PM

Final game

The bills crush the saints 31-6 for a total of 37 points. Add that to the 99 points from the 2 games earlier and we have a grand total of 136, making WOLF-DOG the winner. Congrats Garrett, I'll send you a PM in the morning to confirm your mailing address. Thanks for playing everyone!!!
