For fun, I thought that we should have for a limited time only, a Powerball Challenge similar to the Dash for Cash in another forum where by, for 10 drawings, participants will make prediction as in Maddog Powerball Challenge, we would crown the winner after best of ten.

I doubt PB jackpot would afford us the luxury of high jackpots, but we would play till the end of the Super challenge.

 I see there are names at the top of the official Maddog Powerball Predicition Records Board. This would make us all even and give us all a fair chance. 

We have been sharpening our prediction skills for a while, I think is time to shine.

Participants must sign up and are responsible for participating with that period and before the deadline, ie before the drawings.

I think this might help revive the Maddog challenges.

The winner gets the official "Maddog Super Powerball Challenge 2006" logo under their comments box (or whatever that area is call) with the aid of some experts here on LP as prestige.

It will help those of us that are too shy to post their predictions to actually post the numbers the play.

Participants names will the listed at the top of every Challenge.

 

What do you guys think? ( This is not the first official post)

    Editgap, it's a good idea. Also, I accept this mini challenge and will sign up This MADDOG's Super Powerball Challenge will also accumulate toward my MM and PB prediction thread for 2006. To win this challenge, you have to make the most number of hits for ten drawings just for fun. In case of a tie, we go to tiebreaker in best prediction until we find a winner. That way, we'll crown our first champion of 2006.

      I am somewhat confused as to the specific process of, and/or the format in, the proposed challenge. But, I think I could figure it out by observing what others are doing here.

      Anyway, trying to have some fun on this website, I would sign up in this challenge.

       

      BTW, Just6ntlc and Editgap, 

      Would only the hit ratio count here?  I am asking whether (0+1) is treated as equal to (5+1)?

            Well, it is the same thing that we are doing except we would wipe the records clean for just this TEN drawings whereby, we will find the best of ten to give every predictor a chance to prove themselves.

             

            About the scoring, I was thinking, if you get one number correctly in one draw, it counts as one to your overall score. (ie 1 + 0) = 1. All the numbers you get correctly just accumulates till the end of the game.

            What do you guys think of scoring it that way?

              Maddog should probably comment if we will start this for the next drawing.

              Also let people who are posting their predictions know of what we are doing.

                It's an OK challenge. However, we have a 2006 MM and PB prediction thread that will be more important to determine who's the world champion (MVP) of this year. Editgap, I would only accept 3+0 or better and matching PB or better. Editgap, for example, if I get 1+0, then it will be no score for me. If I get 0+1, then I get 1 point. If I get 3+0 or 2+1, then I get 3 points.
