If your aim is to unseat reigning Hawkstradamus Drunk Viking, this is your chance.
I've prepared 20 categories for you. Each question is worth five points to the winner, three to the runner-up, and one for third place. Collect the most points by February 2016 and you can be the site's next fortune teller.
Sounds easy enough but you've probably set up 12 billion rules for me to follow. I know you, man.
Yeah you do. For ease of compilation, please arrange your answers in this way:
A) answer (tie-breaker if applicable)
etc, all the way down to T) answer
- - - - - - - - - -
Failure to follow instructions will disqualify you. Tie-breakers are all optional.
- - - - - - - - - -
You may skip a question. If you don't want to win.
Actually that's all the rules. Try not to get banned between now and February though.
Is this just like last year's contest?
No sir ma'am. New features of the 2015 Hawkstradamus Challenge:
- Zero Percy Harvin questions
- No "Do We Win The Super Bowl Or What" questions
- Some quirky questions, some expected ones
- Points remove any subjective grading from the process
