Contest is ON!!

Update: Make it quick. The last guess will be taken today at 8 pm CST.

Ok kids, this is Mini here. Unfortunately Scott had to work this evening and was short on time so I'm helping out a bit.

Lets start out by restating the rules:

#1. One guess per person.
#2. Guess the number of nuggets in the bowl. The closest number (under or over) wins.
#3. Spread the word, if one of your referrals wins you get the second prize marble. Make sure your referral mentions you along with their guess!
#4. If your referral sends someone who wins I will make a second marble. (Are you kidding do people honestly think there will be nested refferals? Then both of the people will get a marble..I will continue this down the line for up to 3 marbles.)
#5. Submissions are valid for one week from today (3/6/08 - 3/13/08 11:59:59PM CST). Winner will be announced on Friday 3/14/08.
#6. That Cat is not the prize. Shop kitty is essential!
#7. The one outside the bowl counts.
#8. Postage to anywhere in the world is already been paid for by the ads that I put up last week. No fear guess away, no strings attached!

I will start it off with 1. I was sent from MiniMolli's blog.

PS> the marble and the ornament are the exact same color which is "Olive Green".

Cheers and good luck,

Scott.

Referred by Scott. :P

Gnat of Glass said...

You can't be your own referrer(spelling?) Chunk. Get someone else here to be referred by you then use them as you referrer you hose.

Nysidra, this means I could win my own prize. I think that would cause a rip in the space time thingy.

Jewels said...

I'll step up to your challenge, and I'll up the ante. You know I'm the best at these!

My guess: 313 nuggets, that's including the one on the outside... ;)

Now, my ante: If I win, I'll send the 'last' place winner one of my own hand-made creations.


OH, and that gorgeous olive ornament will be just DIVINE in my window, especially against my lovely new sage velour panels.

I am really interested in possibly purchasing one of your pumpkin's. Will you have them available to buy online? If so, do you have any idea when? I am looking for one for a graduation present the first of June. Any hope? Will you ship?
thanks so much!!!

I am guessing 1 cat and a 12 pack of beer. ;) No, seriously, 117 is my guess. I never win at these games.

JLee said...

This is so cool! I think I'll say 133.

Eternally Curious said...

My guess is 299 + the one on the outside = an even 300!

Not Ashley said...

my guess is 303. Referred by Jewels.

Gnat of Glass said...

Wow, looking like a bunch of guessing going on. This one is going to fun.

As far as selling my pumpkins as luck would have it I just got done setting up a itsy account. MiniMolli and I are currently trying to figure out how to work out the shipping and out ancillary stuff but we are close.

Keep guessing guys!

javajo said...

Using the most precise algorithms and volume analysis methods, i.e. I eyeballed the dang thing, I came up with the magic number of 216 nuggets, one beer, and one kitty cat. I can get you my address when you award me these mighty fine prizes. Oozing with confidence. More more games pleeeese.

ray said...

400

G3T Films said...

I don't think there's any doubt I'll win this... by applying the Tradesky Quotient of Inwardly Reducing Linear 3D Space I can say without a doubt there is 420.

Of course the non-existant nature of the Tradesky Quotient means there's a possibility of a 100% error rate in all calculations.

Wonderful pieces Gnat, and great choice in colour.

Ace said...

The pieces are beautiful! I should visit more often to ogle.

I'll guess 247, plus the one on the outside, for 248.

Jewels sent me.

kev said...

281, referred by Jonas

EXSENO said...

OK I'll be stupid and guess 421, because the bowl looks kinda big.
But you don't have to give me the prize even if I'm right, I just want to guess

EXSENO said...

I changed my mind give that prize. lol

Diana Crabtree said...

I was referred by rich. He really wants another marble.

I am going to guess 500.

Can I please have the cat?

jin said...

275

I actually prefer to get the referral marble prize because my black swirlie marble is ever so lonely sittin' by himself all day long and he told me he's soooo very attracted to the green chickie marble!

What?! So I talk to my marbles, it's not like I've lost them tho!
Harumph!!!

angel said...

after careful analysis and mathematical measuring and such like, my guess is 245 nuggets in the bowl!!!

angel said...
