LOST Numbers Game Season 6 Competition
Well here we are again. Season 5 is over and we have a long wait until Season 6. With filming starting soon and in the effort to avoid spoilers, sign ups for the LNG are earlier than last year.
There are a number of changes this year including, different categories, new characters, and a new point scheme.
This year I have made it even tougher for spoilers to even effect any sort of results and meaning a tougher competition!! Once any major spoilers are released that could effect the LNG sign ups will be stopped. So sign up ASAP.
You can also chat about the LOST Numbers Game on the Spoiler TV Forum by clicking HERE!
Below you can find information about all of the changes, the rules, how to contact me and of course the sign up form.
Please note it is only one entry per person and the winner at the end of Season 6 will receive a LOST related prize (last season it was Amazon vouchers won by Eminga).
There is a new point system for Season 6. I will be using the LNG Weekly point score system for the season game (See How to play below).
This year instead of 23 Characters to choose from there will be 50 characters!! Meaning it is going to be even harder to decide who to pick. Some of the new additions include, Charlie Pace, Bram, Ji Yeon and Fan Favourite Vincent.This year there is:
Aaron, Abaddon, Ana Lucia, Ben, Bernard, Boone, Bram, Charlie P, Charlie H, Charlotte, Christian, Cindy, Claire, Daniel, Danielle, Desmond, Eko, Eloise, Ethan, Frank, Horace, Hurley, Ilana, Jack, Jacob, Ji Yeon, Jin, Juliet, Kate, Libby, Locke, Michael, Mikhail, Miles, Naomi, Nikki, Paulo, Penny, Pierre, Radzinsky, Richard, Roger, Rose, Sawyer, Sayid, Shannon, Sun, Vincent, Walt, Widmore
Finally there are two new categories this year to replace Character Centric and Episode type so that spoilers can not effect this competition. The two new additions are Numbers Appear and 108 Seconds.
Numbers Appear: Guess how many times the numbers will make a unique appearance in an episode,
108 Seconds: Which character will appear at 108 seconds.
How To Play
As you know the numbers are 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, and 42.
In this game each number represents a minute in the episode, you have to guess which character (from a pre selected list) will be on screen at that minute (this is based on an episode being 42 mins long like on the DVD). So for example during an episode you would have:
4 minutes - HURLEY
8 minutes - JACK
15 minutes - WIDMORE
The 42 minute character is the last person to be seen during the episode before the LOST End title.
So the idea of the competition is for each number you have to guess which character will be on screen at that minute. You can also receive Bonus points for guessing the amount of times the numbers appear and which character appears at 108 Seconds.
The following is a points break down:
4 Mins = 4 Points
8 Mins = 8 Points
15 Mins = 15 Points
16 Mins = 16 Points
23 Mins = 23 Points
42 Mins(last person on screen) = 42 Points
And the more you get correct the more points you can gain, because your total would be multiplied by the amount correct. So for example:
Example 1 -- 42 Mins correct = 42 x 1 = 42 Points
Example 2 -- 8 Mins and 15 Mins Correct = (8+15) x 2 = 46 Points
Example one may have got the higher minute correct but because example 2 got 2 correct their points score is multiplied by 2.
There are also two bonus points to gain as well:
Guessing how many times numbers appear: 108 Points
Person who appears at 108 Seconds: 108 Points
So each episode you can receive 864 points or over the season 14688
Rules and Guidelines
These are the rules and guidelines for the LOST Numbers Game. They have been made as fair as possible and my decision on any matter is final.
Episodes are based on the 42 Minutes of running time and adverts are not included. Myself and a panel of forum staff will sit down and enter who we think appeared on screen at that time. Any disagreements will be discussed until all members are in agreement on which character goes with each number. This decision is final.
For a character to be counted the front or back of their head has to be on screen. Any other body part (sorry Doc Artz) will not be counted.
If the LOST titles (the lost sign) appear during one of the minutes, the first character seen after the titles will count for that minute.
If no character from the pre-selected list is on screen on one of the numbers the first character as close to that exact minute will be the one selected.
If a number of characters are on screen at the same time, the character closest to the left corner of the screen will be counted.
The 42 minutes person is the last person to be seen in the episode before the titles, NOT the person who is there at exactly 42 minutes.
The same set of numbers appearing on screen multiple times will only ever count as 1 (Numbers appear category)
My decision is final on the rules and any decisions regarding them. People will be notified of any changes to these rules (not that it will happen). Anyone found to be cheating or using multiple sign-ups will be removed from the competition.
