    Can we get some clarification on the definition of "closest estimate" for the final answer? Are the three winners basically the three closest to the actual number (provided they got the other questions right)? Or are we allowing a decent margin of error for the estimates?

    Dangit I thought I would have gotten them all correct until those screenshots. I made a joke on the last one though hope that doesn't disqualify me.

    the fable question is tricky because Lionhead never "announced" the game gnere...
    the uproar among fable fanbase was caused because people thought that the game was a "gnere" after seeing the demo, but Lionhead never announced it as "that specific gnere". In fact... they later state that the game IS NOT "that gnere"

    Guessed the last one. I have got the other ones right. Does it matter who submits it first? What if the answers get leaked online like last year's final scavenger hunt?
