GRECO Week 3
« on: April 05, 2012, 11:37:50 PM »
Hey all,

Posting the GRECO Week 3 stuff now because I will not be in chat tomorrow. Send me your picks via PM by Monday, April 9th at 10 am eastern. But before you do, I am going to throw you one option to consider. We know for sure one pricing game that is going to be played next week 6 times. If we rule that game out of the picture, there are 25 other pricing games to be played. If you choose to not put that one pricing game on your card and instead try to predict as close to all of the 25 other unique pricing games as possible; there is a reward. If you go for this risk, are able to predict at least 19 of the 24 pricing games, and score at least 34 points with your raw score, I will triple your total score this week. However, be careful, for if you go for this risk and fail, I will divide your total score by 3 this week. So in addition to PMing me your cards, make a clear indication if you are or are not going for the risk. Feel free to PM me questions, but expect a delayed response. Week 2 results might happen tomorrow night, but because of travel and family time, might be postponed a couple of days.
Yeah...let's make this current shall we?

Nah, not this week. You can me one if you want to, but it won't matter whether you get in or not.

Let me remind you people that if you DO pick the game that's going to be played 5 times this week, only pick it once.

General reminder as well to PM me cards by 10 eastern. Week 2 results are going to be delayed due to the holiday weekend, I apologize.

When were Greco's week 1 and 2?  And would one have known about them?

They were this week and last week. Week 1 was you had to look at the tiny text in Unique's posts and Pm him the password, then he would PM you the rules of the game.

Week two was told in chat and also in his posts.

They were that past two weeks. They were sort-of secret. You needed a password and had to PM it to Unique. The password was hidden in some of his post. He also advertised it in chat.

Now, is there some sort of template I should be using, or am I supposed to make my own?

Guess I missed out on getting inside the velvet ropes....one of the problems of having a day job I suppose.

You just make a list #1 - 25 and list the games that you think will be played next week (remembering that #13 is a free space).  That is what I do.

I know its around here, but I'm trying to find the user who posted a link that contains a number of blank Greco Cards. He no longer posts here.

Apeminkie should have it. Again, if he even reads the site anymore.

It is indeed him. Thank you.

But sadly, the link to the cards is no longer valid.

Because I was an idiot and forgot to mention the Tie-Breaker GRECO this week, no Tie-Breaker GRECO. Instead it'll be determined in the other ways I mentioned, most number of GRECOS and then most number of overall games picked.
