Hi guys- taking inspiration from the existing forum-thread base game (thanks for running it Steady!), I've just created the official, automated Guess the Score Game system for CTB.

Basically for every game until the season closes, you can submit your entry on how many points the Clippers & the opposing team will score. Whoever gains the most points at the end of the season will win a Amazon gift certificate, with GC's for the second and third place winners as well.

Check it out here:

I haven't had the chance to extensively test it out, so if you found any bugs or run into any problems, please let me know. Have fun and good luck!

Dave

Weird. It says I'm too late for the laker game and won't let me post for the Dubs game until it starts.

Something to do with your clocks, I guess.

I got a score right for the Lakers game but didn't use this new system, just put my guess in the thread. I want my point!!!!!!!!!!! as I have never got it right till now.

I can't work out how to use this new system.

Yep you get a point just for participating. You couldn't enter your score before the game started? Did you remember seeing an error message? Anyone else getting the same problem?

Sorry David, I think a little correction is needed here, lol. (lakers?)

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

I have never guessed a right score until now, and then I get 2 right in 3 games and you tell me this.

Dude!

^^I know, I know- use the game system to enter and your entry will count in the future. There are 79 games left + playoff games, so plenty of other chances to get the score right. I don't see your entry there yet for the Rockets game, so go ahead & enter, and let me know if you have any questions on how to use it.

BTW congrats to clipsclaps on a 4 point score the last game!

Ok so I just clicked on the link and 2 boxes appeared for the scores and a big one for comments. Everything but those boxes appeared on the page yesterday. So it should be fine now.

Love this idea. Great addition! Smile

I think we should eventually develop it into an actual game prediction where the point spread gets you the win. Because if you say the clippers win 110-95 (+15) but they lose 93-95 (-2) you would get 3 points even though you were way off the actual game prediction. Whereas someone predicting a 96-94 loss (-2) wouldn't earn any points though they were more accurate with the actual game prediction.

This just seems like guessing rather than predicting. The person that puts both team's average point total for all games is likely to win out just by getting one or the other right. Just a suggestion.

^^Good idea and I actually I thought about giving point(s) for having the right spread. Maybe I will add that new rule starting in game 4.

Okay just added the new rule valid starting the next game and onward- if you don't get the scores right, BUT get the spread correctly AND get the right winner/loser, then you get 3 points.

Hey guys- starting the upcoming game & onwards, those who have received a rep OR made at least 20 posts in the last 7 days (dating back from the end of the upcoming active game), will get one extra point. So instead of 1 for participating, 3 for the right spread, 4 for guessing one score right, & 10 for both scores right, you'd get 2, 4, 5, & 11, respectively. Smile

Hey gang the new season is here (at least the pre-season), and I'm happy to announce that Guess the Score is back. Starting in game 2 of the pre-season, you can make your guesses and earn points towards winning top 3 prizes. There are a few minor changes:

  1. Guessing 1 score right is now worth 5 (vs 4 before)

  2. Getting the winner correctly + right difference in points = 4 points (it was 3 before)

  3. Getting the exact score right = 15 points (vs 10 in the past)

Have fun!

^^Right here:

http://clippers.topbuzz.com/guess-the-score.php

The link to the game is shown on the right side of the main page, below the Everything Else forum. There is also a link to it on gameday threads.

BTW I've just added a new way to get more points- if you picked the right winning team, you get 2 points despite not getting the scores or spread right.
