Q: The actual weekend gross is $21.0 mil and I predicted
$20.7 mil, why does it say I was 45% off when I'm clearly extremely close?
A: BOFC is a daily prediction game. The accuracy of your Friday gross is
added to the accuracy of your Saturday and Sunday grosses giving a total daily
accuracy for the weekend. Your score is broken up into Weekend and Daily
accuracy. You have to be accurate for each day in order to win, not just
for the total weekend.
Q: How Do I Win Points?
A: You win points based on the accuracy of your prediction. Accuracy
is determined using the following formula:
abs (Your Prediction - Actual Gross) / Actual Gross * 100 = Accuracy%
Daily total accuracy and point conversion.
0 - 15.0% = 10
>15.0 - 25.0 = 7
>25.0 - 45.0 = 5
>45.0 - 75.0 = 3
>75.0 = 1
Weekend total accuracy is listed below (% is percentage off).
0 - 1.0% = 10 points
>1.0 - 3 = 7 points
>3.0 - 5 = 5 points
>5.0 - 10 = 3 points
>10.0 = 1 point
Q: Do I have to play the bonus rounds?
A: nope, only if you want extra points.
Q: Can I lose points?
A: read carefully, for some of our new features, you are betting your
points. If you lose the bet, those points will be lost. Currently though,
there is no way to lose points.
Q: My point total is wrong. How do I fix it?
