Very very interesting point Fatt!!!!! But as long as members choose their number from 12 to 4455 will be qualify for the contest. I also believe that luck played a big roll in here, since the draw could go small, middle or late in numbers plus need to be the 5 closest...

Sorry, I can not attentive, but I did not see the condition "there is no room to get 4 more numbers after the 2nd provided number." Thank you.

I didn't win, so this has no bearing on my choice, but I don't think valid number selection should matter, personally.  I've never played lotto in my life and have no idea how it works haha.  I just guessed a number in the range and hoped for the best.  Other people probably did the same.

Hi fatt, thanks for the long post.
I will do my math and compare it to yours.

In any case, I had thought about numbers that can never be exact winning numbers before writing the instructions, and chose not to complicate the rules. My rules did not require posting numbers that could be exact winning numbers, so all guesses "make sense" and I see no "lack of attention to the rules". The winners are those whose guess was closest to the concatenation of the drawn numbers, regardless of whether the number they chose could have resulted exactly from the drawn numbers.

An example: if the first number drawn was 20, then the second number would obviously have been at least 21, so 2019 could never have been an exact guess, and even less so 201. However, if the first two numbers had been 20 and 21, the number to guess would have been 2021, and both 2019 and 201 would have won over, say, 4546, which could have been an exact guess in case the first two numbers drawn had been 45 and 46.

Hope that clarifies.

Sure, not being a native English speaker/writer, just let me know if my rules could have been interpreted differently. In any case, I am choosing the broadest reasonable interpretation and not going to disqualify any entry...

LOL I used the impossible 1849 because it's my highest rating. I never win anything despite entering every contest on offer, so I wasn't too worried about the rules. And my assumption was correct again. What fatt calls lack of attention to the rules I call time optimization.

@BRS: ...and it's not even lack of attention, as there was no such rule! Tongue

@fatt: sure, you're welcome! An independent review of the result is always useful!

In the case of Karis, the last two numbers were considered, so the upper limit was 4849.

The hour is too late here in Germany for a full post, for now let's just say that I can confirm fatt's analysis (many thanks!).

The five lucky testers of Rubicon, in order of posting, are Chicobo (243), rocketman222 (296), clannewton (305), incarnation (48), and Gauguin123 (496). Congrats!
The number in parentheses indicates how close they were to the lucky number 2729.

Tomorrow I'll declare the qualified testers and post further instructions.

I chose # 729 and the winning number was 2729, 3 out of 4 is not bad Approve, can i have a consolation prize.Wink

Anyway... I think overall the method of play was very cool and clever, mixing chance and strategy to pick the numbers. Arg0 did a great job setting the rules, you just have to read them carefully and not jump into conclusions.

...and here are the qualified testers for Rubicon, selected by me and Oscar (in order of posting):
AndySmith, patrickhrdlicka, NextLevel, JimT, elmo51

In making the selection, we considered the quality and quantity of previous testing, the players' playing characteristics and styles, and their (declared) knowledge of Nexy. We also tried to strike a balance for testers who applied for both Rubicon and Karis.
Yet, two testers were selected for both Rubicon and Karis, because we are also interested in combined reviews. Thus, in exchange for receiving both a Rubicon blade and a pair of Karis rubbers, AndySmith and patrickhrdlicka, please review them both separately and in combination. This also applies to Gauguin123, who won both contests as lucky tester.

All selected testers, both lucky and qualified, please send me a PM with your real name and shipping address. You will then receive instructions on how to proceed with your order, on top of which you will get the free blade and/or rubbers.

Thanks to all for participating!

Thanks for the opportunity. I should say that Nexy really did a lot to promote their blades and rubbers on our forum - over the last few years there has been a lot of testing, posting, reviewing - a lot of time and effort to promote Nexy and TT in the US. Best of luck and happy wishes to all in the new 2017!

Just ordered my copy of test Rubicon from the Nexy's store. Too bad they only use a rather expensive EMS service for shipping but I guess Nexy prefers that packages go with insurance and delivery guarantee.

To all testers,
if you get high shipping costs (higher than say $30-$35), please use the contact links/forms on the web pages of the shops (and/or the email address I sent you via PM) to get in contact with the Nexy staff and wait for their reply before finalising the order.
As I could see from the emails I am put in CC, you will normally get a reply with a reasonable shipping quote and if you are charged more by the online shop, they will refund the difference.

Testers,
in case shipping costs via EMS (about $30-35) are too high for you, the staff at Nexy proposed to ship parcels under 2kg via Korean post, which costs $10-18, depending on the destination country. It is cheaper, but will take around 20-30 days for delivery.
If you are fine with that, contact Nexy via email or the contact page on the shop, before finalising your order.
