How Many Pieces?-Contest: Winners Announced!

Hello people of Instructables! I have a few pro memberships that have been around for a while now, so I have decided to make a piece-guessing contest. All you have to do is guess how many pieces are in my Knex skeeball machine. The six people that guess closest to the number will win!

The contest has ended, so it's time to announce the winners: The grand total of pieces in the machine is 28,396! Below are the winners and what number they guessed. 

1st place: bethekind - 28,001
2nd place: mikeasaurus - 28,000
3rd place: Duplo for Daddies - 27,999
4th place: RCS82 - 27,850
5th place: Mountain Dew dude - 27,593
6th place: technicalrob - 29,666


1. Only one guess per person
2. Don't guess the same number as someone else

1st place: 1-year Pro membership and a patch
2nd place: 1-year Pro membership and a patch
3rd place: 1-year Pro membership and a patch
4th place: Patch
5th place: Patch
6th place: Patch

Below are some deconstruction pictures of the machine, just in case anyone wants to see them (it took a month to take apart/count pieces).

I feel like I just got schooled, 'The Price Is Right' style.

Haha, that's what I was thinking.
Hey, was my guess deleted or did I just DREAM that I had guessed ? ;-)

I'm not sure, I don't remember you ever posting a guess.
Hmmm, I did try, not that I was looking for winning, just seeing how close I could get.....it must have not "gotten through" (that happens sometimes from here....)

Id say around 5 million? Give or take a few hundred thousand.
