The 3 predictions made on 26 Dec had a mistake of 0%; 7% and 31%. So average 12%.
Compared to other predictions not very good, but also not very bad HeadlinesPremiums as well as non-premiums are welcome in this restaurant.
At entering you have to choose what your major reason is to join: eat or date?
Date: at the start you play one game at the same time and two weeks later max 2 games
Eat: you start with two games (max) and a third after two weeks.
Except for the number of games you can play in parallel, there is no difference between date & eat. For premiums the default is eat, for non-premiums the default is date.
PlanningStart first games on 15 January. You need to be able to start your game(s) at that moment.
I will reconfirm that date latest 12 January. In other words I hope that at least 25 people entered on 12 January.
Ok it will start on 15 January, but I still need some more reserves, so please join Mac Dinner DateAs the most of you, I also don’t consider the Mac as a standard restaurant. Still I would like to organize a kind of Dinner Date at the Mac. The group of 25 people is too large for one big table. To solve these issues we do it as follows:
All people are divided over 5 tables (5 people each) for the explanation of this dinner date; to prevent problems with really hungry people you get directly a Mac Donut. In fact what will be told is to get some fun you all have to go to different tables for the different things to eat. Again there will be 5 tables of each, but you have to go to one specific table that I will point out to you (you get 48 hours after getting a message in your inbox to enter your place). For your Big Mac ® and your banana Milkshake you even have to go to your specific place. The French Fries will be in large bowl, so you can pick at any time some fries out of the bowl and no fixed places there but still you will get a specific table to prevent all 25 go to the same bowl. Using the windmill system I arranged the tables for all of you in such a way that in the end of the Dinner Date, you will have met all of the other participants. Since I expect that you would like something extra we also already arranged a Mac Flurry. Basically that is it; in case you are still hungry you can get anything at the McDrive but anyway you simply will drive home.
You start at one table, but since everything is served on different tables you have to walk through the restaurant soon. The hungry people can directly begin at two tables. The dating people might look around a bit first, but after 14 days also should start with using two tables At that moment the hungry people can even use three tables in parallel.
To summarize you will get a Mac Donut, a Big Mac, a banana Milkshake, French Fries and a Mac Flurry. After that you have to drive home (optional: McDrive). Start with 1 or 2 tables; after two weeks 2 or 3 tables depending if you came to eat or to date.
I expect that you all will enjoy your time at my restaurant.
The recipesFor some people it will be already clear how this results in the recipes, others can look at post 3. All tables have 5 places and in fact it doesn’t matter if you understand how we came to the following recipes:
1) Mac Donut: USA, standard, seq, escalating, unlimited, sunny
2) Big Mac: Brazil, standard, seq, flat-rate, chained, sunny
3) Banana Milkshake: Caribbean, standard, seq, flat-rate, unlimited, fog
4) French Fries: France, standard, freestyle, flat-rate, unlimited, sunny
5) Mac Flurry: Imperium Romanum, standard, seq, flat-rate, unlimited, sunny
6) McDrive: World 2.1, standard, seq, no spoils, unlimited, sunny
ScoreAs score we use the windmill score. You will get more tulips in case you leave a table later. You will get for each game 21, 17, 13, 9 or 7 tulips depending on your position. The winner gets 21 tulips
In case there is at the end of the competition a tie in number of tulips collected, the results of game(s) in which those persons where in together will show there relative position.
Any needed reserve will get the same number of tulips as the person at position 7 at that moment. Furthermore he -or she- will get one extra bonus tulip.
PredictionsPredictions like this are easily not 100% correct, see my earlier tournament with predictions:
link. The problem is that they really are only predictions.
• Expected start first games at 15 January.
Invitations send on the 15th. So here a score of 100%• Expected start last game on 25 February.
In reality last invitations send on 1 Mar, that is 4 days too late. Prediction made on 26 Dec. 25 Feb - 26 Dec = 61 days. 4/61= 7% mistake• Expected the very last game to be finished at 10 October
In reality the last game ended already on 14 Jul. Calculating in the same way that is a mistake of 31%
