Have you never seen the game show called, "The Price is Right"?

The one who gets closest to the right number without going over wins. Or, in your contest, can one be closest from either direction, over or under? And if both directions apply, what happens in a tie? (For instance, if one person was 3 under the number, and another was 3 over)

Not being difficult, just anticipating possible issues and attempting to help you avoid them. It's why official contests must legally have a disclaimer and rules a foot long in 8 point font.

I have a vague memory of seeing it as a teenager in the 60's.

The infamous bunch of bananas is still green and enjoying our rainy season. I recently updated the list of guesses ... see the 1st post in this thread if you'd like to add yours too!

Very cool! IF all the cold weather is behind us, I guess they will ripen up in spring for you!

Nice to see I have the average / median guess number. Although the standard deviation has me a bit worried..... haha

Did the contest end? If not, I'm guessing 98 bananas.
