Game of Thrones Contest
A lotta people are excited about the final season of Game of Thrones, which starts tomorrow night on HBO. There are a gazillion fan theories and a ton of speculation about who will "win". Some friends of mine and I have been discussing it from a purely military perspective for several seasons now. So I thought I'd make it interesting. I'm starting a pool for who you think will sit on the Iron Throne at the end of the series. The entry fee is 10 SCR. You are allowed three picks, ranked from 1 - 3. They must be specific named characters, so no "some random zombie" entries. You may name the same character for more than one of your picks. You may also pick nobody only under specific conditions such as, "The Iron Throne will be destroyed." All winners whose top pick sits on the Iron Throne at the end of the series will split 100% of the entry fees. All winners whose second pick sits on the Iron Throne at the end of the series will split 50% of the entry fees. All winners whose third pick sits on the Iron Throne at the end of the series will split 25% of the entry fees. I will match the entry fees for the the first ten entries. In the likely event of ties, the winners' payouts will scale. For example, If Entrant 1's first pick and Entrant 2's second pick sit on the Iron Throne at the end of the series, Entrant 1 would receive 67% of the entry fees and Entrant 2 would receive 33% of the entry fees. For example, If Entrant 1's top pick, Entrant 2's second pick, and Entrant 3's third pick sit on the Iron Throne at the end of the series, Entrant 1 would receive 57.143% of the entry fees, Entrant 2 would receive 28.571% of the entry fees, and Entrant 3 would receive 14.286% of the entry fees. For example, If the top pick of Entrants 1 and 2, the second pick of Entrants 3 and 4, and the third pick of Entrants 5 and 6 sit on the Iron Throne at the end of the series, Entrants 1 and 2 would split 57.143% of the entry fees, Entrants 3 and 4 would split 28.571% of the entry fees, and Entrants 5 and 6 would split 14.286% of the entry fees. Any specific conditions you state must be met in order to win. My picks are:Varys. Because he's extremely clever and the least likely to be in any actual combat.The Night King.Daenerys, but she's a White Walker. To be eligible, send 10 SCR to my wallet before the Game of Thrones season 8 premiere starts at 9 PM EDT tomorrow, and comment on this post with your top three picks in order. I will reply to your comment to confirm your entry. Any entry submitted after 9 PM EDT tomorrow will NOT be eligible and will NOT be refunded but will be added to the prize pool. Any wallet transfer without a comment on this post stating your picks will NOT be refunded, 'cause honestly if you didn't read this gigantic text, I don't have time to explain it to you. Good luck!
