Congrats 1SO, impressive performance there.

I'll console myself with the podium (only counting the actual people on the list).

This isn't technically over until Thursday, right?

Very long shot, but Moana (4.2M on Monday) is closing the gap on Fantastic Beasts (1.3M on Monday). Probably too slowly though.

The game is still not over. I will be posting the final result in a few days. As films in 11th to 14th place can score it is possible to not have all your picks in the top 10 and have them all scoring.

I still don't know what those three score columns mean...Not that us non-top-ten people have a right to be heard or anything...

Score is the players combined score based on where they guessed a film would place and where it actually placed. A player gets 15 points for a correct guess. Here is the table of points scored:

Actual \ Guess12345678910
1151312111098765
21315131211109876
312131513121110987
4111213151312111098
51011121315131211109
69101112131513121110
7891011121315131211
878910111213151312
96789101112131513
10567891011121315
110000012345
120000001234
130000000123
140000000012
150000000001

Note: It is possible to score points for a film that finishes up to 15th place

Scoring Films is the number of films selected by a player that received at least 1 point
Films Out is the number of films selected by a player that have passed there planned release date (clearly with Kidnap the release did not happen so I should have updated the date)

Does that make sense?
