    Everyone will have 1 week from today to submit your box. The list of bottles you plan to submit should be sent to me no later than midnight on Feb 22nd.

    Remember, no swag!

    Use this time to scout/study/stalk/stare at from afar the others participants. Gear your boxes to things that they will like, not necessarily what you like. This will help propel your box to the top and forever be known as the king poobah of all boxes! Hopefully everyone has updated/added to their wants list. Please try to do so if you haven't!

    Feel free to talk trash, brag, and even give hints so long as you don't really give anything away, haha.

    Cheers all, let the games begin!

    150 to 250 ounces, right?
     
  15. BulbMan

    BulbMan Aug 15, 2010 Colorado

    I believe that to be correct. Not an ounce more or less.

    But that having been said, 151 oz. of whale-ish-ness could be the winner!

    The Bulbman is correct. It will be interesting to see if a big whale surrounded by small fish wins this or if a nice mix of medium fish wins it, or something else entirely different. I still haven't figured out my plan of attack yet.

    As I prepare my list, someone out there better be in the mood for some big-ass stouts.

    Couple of box stats here. Currently sitting on 228.8ozs , Average R.avg is 4.523 and Average BA Score is 99.27. Unless something significant happens between now and Friday this is the Box I'm rolling with.

    So when people feel that their box is ready (mine is close), just send a BM me with the title MY BOX. These messages will not be opened until the deadline so that I do not get to see anything that others don't get to see.

    I like the box stats idea. Here are some from mine:
    Nine beers for ~ 218 oz.
    rAvg = 4.35
    All with wants > gots.
    Total Wants = 3,570
    Total Gots = 1,547

    My box is up to 193 oz currently, but not quite done.
    Avg BA score = 95.3
    Working on finishing it today!
     
  23. BulbMan

    BulbMan Aug 15, 2010 Colorado

    99.27.. Damn! I don't think I could do that if I tried!

    I keep tweaking my list back and forth, up and down. Currently north of 95% Avg BA score for 10 beers, and total wants > 4,600. Details to follow!

    I'm not sure how Sam could enter a box for this BIF, let alone run it. No way he has the ammo. I've seen his cellar. /s

    Picked up what I think will be the final piece to this puzzle.

    This box IMO is a bit of a beast, but maybe I'll be completely blown away by other people's boxes. Hesitant to even offer all this deliciousness up!

    Nervous for this thing to play out!

    Sam, dated picture of your beers prior to the deadline! Haha, only kidding!


    I plan to send my list over tomorrow!

    I have no problem sending my list to someone if that's what you guys would like! I just figured in the end, it doesn't matter much as people will still need to vote on it and it wouldn't give me any real advantage.

    The good thing about this BIF is that you can't really get screwed. You get what you put in, maybe EXACTLY what you put in lol. I have no idea where my box will rank, but I'm shooting for somewhere near the top!

    Btw, all voting will be shown publicly to all.

    No worries at all. Just playing. I'm waiting until a bit closer to the deadline. Gonna see what else I acquire over the next few days.

    After the 22nd box deadline, we will probably have a week to do ranking, then a week to do selections, then I would like everyone to ship the following week. So 2-3 weeks-ish.
