    To be clear - this is just the same video reposted. No new stuff here.

    Right, EduGeek special mini-comp time:

    • Watch the video in the post above and have a guess at how many entrants we had in this latest competition
    • 1 guess per EduGeeker (if you forget and post more than 1 guess, I'll take your first punt and discount the 2nd)
    • Closest to the correct answer gets a little mystery prize (not sure what it is myself yet, probably tasty or fun or maybe even both at the same time *mindblow!*)
    • If 2 are equidistant, we'll push the boat out, declare it a draw, mint a new gold medal and get you both a prize
    • Post your guess publicly right here in the thread
    • Once a number has been guessed it has been claimed and no-one else can guess that total (if 2 or more users post the same guess, I'll accept whichever shows up first in the thread and give the later guessers another chance)
    • You do not have to have entered the main competition to have a guess, so anyone who missed the cutoff can get involved in this littel extra bit of fun
    • Open to ALL EduGeekers who have a UK address we can post to
    • I'll leave it open until midnight on Saturday 22nd Feb 2014 and announce the result on Monday 24th Feb


    As it's a very special occasion, just this once, I'd like to invite the gods and admins to join in too, so @Dos_Box, @ZeroHour, @Ric (did I miss any?), come on down and have a punt if you think you're good enough/want to have a go. Just our tiny little way of saying thanks to EduGeek itself, as well as the users - I promise that no hint of endorsement will be inferred (or tolerated - raaargh!)

    Few things to consider when making your guess:

    • More than Stocktober2 (most entrants we had in a single comp before this one)
    • Less than 1000
    • There are some numeric clues in the video, but don't be misled...
    • Quite a lot of entrants were removed after serialising the tickets due to duplicate entries and other disqualifications like international addresses (not to mention Max the dog!), so it might not be as high as the evidence suggests.


    That's it - plenty of time to make a guess, so think carefully before you post your single guess.

    Gooooood luck!
