    I have took it upon myself to be the host of the 2012 Cambridge Applicant Game.

    It's just a fun little game, make time pass quicker and we can all support each other in a different sort of way!



    The object of the game is to best predict who will get a Cambridge offer this year.

    The rules:

    You must send me your prediction for 5 people who will get offers through a private message.

    I will then send you a number that I have assigned to you. Your number, along with your choices will then be added to this main post (with your identity kept secret).

    The winner is chosen by being the person with the most correct guesses.

    I would like everyone, as a twist to the game, to add a 'kicker' (basically, a 6th choice which will be kept completely anonymous from everyone but me) in case people tie and get 5 out of 5 correct. If even after kicker, it is tied then we will split the 'loot'.

    Whoever wins must be +repped by every person who has entered the game, as a prize.

    If any clarity is needed, please comment on this or write me a PM. I will be spoilering the choices for anyone who doesn't want to see.

    I will also be taking part by entering my entry in at some random number when the time comes.

    Yep. 5 of them you think will get an offer, and an extra which you're maybe not as confident with just in case (I'm keeping the last one private as to not hurt feelings etc.)

    As Tateco said I will be updating it with all entries after they're closed (midnight tomorrow night). Don't want to put all the entries up, only for one more person to be added and posting 'entered' on this thread, otherwise it gets a little too obvious haha
