1/10 of the bar equals 600 million. That's a lot of points. A more realistic goal would have been 1 billion points. I agree.....a better prize would make it more worth playing. Like a rare, an exclusive, or 5000 KC. I bet tons of more people would compete.

Thanks for bringing up that 1/10 or a bar = 600 million. Aside from it pointing out how unrealistic the goal was, it makes me feel proud of what everyone has accomplished already. As a community, we have almost reached 600 million points in Goober's Lab during our first contest. I think we should be proud of ourselves for our accomplishment, especially since I think many became frustrated (rightfully so) and did not play as much as they would have if the goal had been more attainable or the prize more significant.


CONGRATS EVERYONE - Regardless or whether we reach the goal, we have all done a terrifc job!

Does this mean I can stop playing now?

If they are using a formula based on how many people entered, it could easily be off. I know a lot of us have multiple accounts which we probably entered all of them into the contest but only play on one. But I'm not sure this could account for an error this large??? Obviously at about halfway through and just barely reaching 10%... it's impossible! I agree that they should award the prize anyway. We gave it a good effort.

I agree completely! So many in our community have done all they can -- some have logged many, many hours in Goober's Lab, going cross-eyed and numb in the process. Reading everyone's stories shows me there are some very dedicated people here. Last night I was reading the post of someone who is COMPLETELY COLORBLIND, yet still trying to help out! Can you imagine?! That's team spirit!

What formula gave them 6 Billion points?? Hopefully they will give 500 KC to those that spent all day playing Goober's Lab. Since they can track the points, I'm sure they can track who played!

OK. I'm up again. 11am here). So Ganz miscalculated. Someone call thenewspapers!!

So we've got two choices. Do we still go for the goal? (6,000 families at 1 mill pts each = 6 billion points). Or, would that make Ganz 'miscalculate' next week, also? Should we all just stop? Not sure. I do think y'all were right that they should only give prizes to peoel who actually play the game & contribute the goal.
MAYBE Ganz will have an epiphany and actually just award everyone the prize anyway, since THEY ******* up... Medical disclaimer: please do not hold your breath & wiat for this to happen, as you'll most assuredly end up dead.
WEll, I have local friends (I live somewhere else right now) coming over this afternoon, so I need to go bake some zucchini bread. ANd then we have other guests coming over for dinner. So I'll squeak in another 100,000 pts right now, then I'm off til tonight (since it's still Sunday in the states, I'm hoping it'll still let us play. If it started us 11 hours late AND cuts us off 11 hours EARLY, I'm going to have a major fit. Really, I would. Especially since our power was off here 9 hours in the middle - not giving uis much chance to earn the 1 mill we pledged as a family toward this contest. We'll still do our part, so Ganz can set a more reasonable goal for next week.

Bye WI firends!!! Sleep well!
