Drunk Viking and Blake Whitney would like to cordially invite you to succeed them as Field Gulls’ Hawkstradamus.

Drunky won for his 2014 guesses; Blaky won last season after scoring points on four separate questions, winning two of them. All you have to do to join those guys in everlasting glory is outscore everyone else on the quiz below. (Hey: If you know the future, be sneaky and still get some of the questions wrong on purpose, so we don’t burn you and stuff.)

Just like last year, the quiz will contain individual questions, team questions, and league questions. Just like last year, you’ll need to place in the top three of all entries to receive points. Just like last year, the reward for winning is threefold: fame, bragging rights, and 144 Gullbux.

Good luck, not that you’ll need it, future winner.
