Guess the Pieces contest!
So recently, I’ve finally finished counting all the pieces in Convolution. I thought it might be a cool idea to make a contest about it. There will be separate categories with points awarded in each category. The one who has the most points wins! You are allowed to give ONE guess for each of the categories.
Here are the categories and the scoring system for each one:
1) Grand Total: Guess the grand total of the piece count. The closer you are, the more points are awarded. If you are within 50 pieces, you get 10 points, within 100 you will get 8 points, within 250 and 6 points are awarded, within 500 and 4 points are awarded, within 1000 and 2 points are awarded, and within 2000 1 point will be awarded.
2) Most Common Piece: Here it is simple; just give your guess of the most used piece/part in the machine, and the amount of times it occurs. You will get 2 points for guessing the correct piece/part, and another 2 points if you are within 50 of the amount of pieces used.
3) Least Common Piece: Just as simple as the second one, guess the least used piece/part in the machine and the amount of times it occurs. 2 points will be awarded for the correct part/piece and another 2 points if you correctly guess the amount of times it is used.
4) Price Total: In this category, simply give an estimate of what you think the price of the machine would be if you were buying it piece by piece from the K’nex website. Prices are based firstly on the K’nex website, and if the piece is not found there, the price will be based on the price of the K’nex User Group. Prices are calculated in USD. If you are within $25, you will get 6 points, within $50 and you will be awarded 4 points and within $100 and you will be awarded 2 points.
For reference, my room measures 2.28m(7’6’’) high, by 3.65m(12’) by 2.74m(9’).
Also, here are some pictures and the video for reference as well.
Best of luck to everyone. The contest deadline will be February 10.
