Joy Re: FHIA 17 tally game

Use a sharpie and number each banana on the end. It is still easy to use the same number twice, but you will catch it easier than counting in your head and guessing...did I count that banana or not? If you don't like sharpie you can use a grease pencil that wipes off later. Good luck and thank you again.

So, we don't know the winner yet? Or are you the winner? I embarrassingly am not sure if you are joking or not.

Illia,

As of 8/8/2013 at 12:01am there was no post about the bananas being successfully counted. I am sure G.W. will arrive at an accurate method of counting soon. The suspense was killing me so I at least congratulated the winner....

Hopefully me?

Okay so the game is delayed....at least let us compare notes on how we arrived at our numbers or what we would have guessed if we could have changed our guess. Maybe a range of...

I first tried to count the bananas showing..just like G.W. I lost track quickly. Then I looked up some stats about FHIA 17 like average production in field tests. So the average in this test was 13.6 hands and 16.6 fingers= 226. But Like G.W said his hands were more consistent with 14 fingers.
Then Abnsherk posted " There's 90-something showing on the front side.. what's that tell you.. :^). So I put up tracing paper to a blown up version of the picture, then I numbered each banana-113 bananas showing=doubled is 226...
G.W. said you cannot go over so I backed it off to 215.

Ok with an effort like that to figure it out I think you should win by default. The banana would have a good home with you.
