yhm_episode_images.jpg

Every year, we make a wager on which movies will make the most money during the summer movie season. In this episode, we will argue about who will be the big winners at the box office. Play along and let us know which movies you think will be the top 10 of the summer.

Featuring: Abi Porter, Bethany Allen, Josh Porter, Matt Hughes, Patrick Porter, and Tyler Hanns.

Spoilers: Oceanโ€™s 11, The Great Muppet Caper, and Avengers: Infinity War, Becoming Christopher Robin, and the trailer for Mission: Impossible - Fallout

Game Rules: Based on domestic American totals, name the top ten movies of the summer that will make the most money at the box office. You are also allowed three wildcard choices that can earn you extra points if they make it into the top ten. The summer movie season begins May 1 and ends on Labor Day. We like to add a $5 buy-in with a movie gift card awarded to the winner.

Scoring: Getting number 1 or number 10 dead-on gets you 13 points (each). The rest of the scoring goes like this: 10 points for numbers 2-9 dead-on, 7 points if your pick was only one spot away from where it ended up, 5 points if it was two spots away, 3 points if your pick is anywhere in the Top 10, 1 point for each dark horse that makes it into the Top 10. The scoring is tabulated so that you get the SINGLE HIGHEST point value for each pick- that is, if you get number ten right, you donโ€™t get 13+3, you only get 13.
