SCORING ADJUSTMENT

Effective today, to make play more fun and competitive for all, we’ve adjusted the scoring system for price predictions for Eager Zebra’s PTP (Pick The Price) game.  In short, the higher the winning price for the auction, the more points you’ll score on your price prediction—scaling up to a maximum of 500 points.

For example, pick the exact winning price on an auction that ends at $2.00 or less and you’ll score 300 points. For each cent you’re off on your prediction (either over OR under), subtract 3 points (maximum 300).  Here’s an example:

  • Winning price is $2.00.  You predicted $2.00.  You score 300 points.
  • Winning price is $2.00.  You predicted $1.90.  You score 270 points.
  • Winning price is $2.00.  You predicted $2.50.  You score 150 points.
  • Winning price is $2.00.  You predicted $1.05.  You score 15 points.
  • Winning price is $2.00.  You predicted $1.00.  Zero points scored.

OR, here’s an example for an auction that ended at $8.00 (an auction with a winning price of more than $7.00 makes each cent worth the maximum of five points):

  • Winning price is $8.00.  You predicted $8.00.  You score 500 points.
  • Winning price is $8.00.  You predicted $7.90.  You score 450 points.
  • Winning price is $8.00.  You predicted $8.50.  You score 250 points.
  • Winning price is $8.00.  You predicted $7.05.  You score 25 points.
  • Winning price is $8.00.  You predicted $7.00.  Zero points scored.

NEW BADGE ON THE WAY

We’re also rolling out a new badge for a PERFECT SCORE in PTP.  A perfect score requires hitting the price prediction exactly AND scoring the maximum number of points for all the available Sidekicks.  Look for this badge to appear in the next 10 days, awarded retroactively, to all players who’ve achieved a perfect score from today forward.
