dang, just shy of placing. Must be a bit rusty; at least I'm still top-tier for Mario Awards section. Too bad I suck at the 'Shroom/UP award part.

Congrats FW on the overall win, as well as NSY and Ice on 2nd and 3rd (respectively).

I don't understand how you calculate the token amount and the bonus.

whoa third and it was really close to second

15 points = 1 token as opposed to last year being 20 points, and as for bonuses I just threw some amounts that looked good and then checked to see how it lined up with the ranking and it looks cool.  Shroom and UP awards only have 10 guesses so they have less for the bonus, then Fail has 15 guesses, and Mario has 30.  60 for 1st, 50 for 2nd, 40 for 3rd, 25 for most trifectas.

If you're thinking that the bonuses have some huge mathematical reason, they don't.  They're just good amounts that award certain things that don't push the token total above a reasonable amount, and also keep the ranking in proper order (i.e. 3rd place doesn't overtake 1st place in token amount, etc.)

did a lot better than i originally expected

in all honesty most of these guesses were pulled out of my ass

i remember doing a bunch of guesses well before which i had thought out and researched, but *bleep* that one appears to have melted off the face of the earth

so i had to do a bunch of last minute guesses which didn't bring in as much time or thought as i had wanted
