Hey guys just a heads up that the Guess the Score game will restart again shortly with the first Lakers preseason game of the 2016-17 season after the break from the Summer League Games which kicked things off.

More than enough games still to play, plus every selection is not going to be an automatic loss predication this year.

Yeah it's a bug where if the scores are not refreshed for the game that was just over (current game), it shows the next Laker opponent as the current game's. I should be able to fix that shortly.

I disagree that it's restrictive. If you pick your score early you get a choice of score but are at a disadvantage to last minute team news.

If you wait till just before the game you have the advantage of knowing who is and is not playing that night which is a clear advantage. By not being able to pick a score that has already been taken is the consequence.

From the game day thread.

Congrats Skyeword for being the 2016-2017 Lakers NewsSurge Guess the Score Game champion with 340 points! clapping clapping-hands Super w00t violin music1 party1 kickass

Same goes for userpete1037 who was so close with 337, and kkennon1 not far behind getting third place with 329.

Thanks to everyone to played! I will be sending out the Amazon gift certificates codes shortly- winners, please check your PMs!

As a surprise, I would also like to reward those of you who did not place in the top 3, but scored over 200 points. PM me by the end of the week and I will provide you with a free promo code for the Pro version of the Lakers NewsSurge iOS app (sorry the Android LNS app does not support promo codes).

BTW please discuss any possible rule changes- for instance Tempy would like it where one cannot guess any of the same scores entered beforehand. I had made a compromise for this season where you cannot have the exact same set of scores for both the Lakers & the opposing team, but you can have one of the same, and I think it should still stay that way. But if most of you want the change, it's not a problem with me.

I like it the way it is, as far as being able to guess one of the scores the same. I just think point needs to be changed, where you get more points for guessing both scores right, say 18, than 10 for one score, and right team win. And 5 for one score and not getting right team win. Or something like that, where you get a lot more points for both scores, and getting one score and right team.

I like those ideas- what does everyone else think?

Everything will change when we sign PG13, re-sign Orange Julius, we have KuzMoney, The Two Ingrams, Lonzo and his brothers with L.A.BRON begging to join us!

And Super Liberal Pop becoming our coach.

Now THAT'S a team!!!

Can Cousins, Kawhi and Klay be far behind?

Now, off to the dispensary!

Hey guys- the 2019-2020 Guess the Score game starts with today's summer league game!

Going forward, I've made the following tweaks to the game:

  • Guessing the exact right score now gets you 20 instead of 15 points

  • If you guess one team's score right, but you don't have the right winning team, you get 3 instead of 5 points

Participation is free as always, and the top 3 each gets a prize in the form of an Amazon gift card at the end of the season. Good luck everyone!
