So as many of you know, today is my birthday... turning the big three-zero (30). Instead of people giving me presents, I'd like to give something back to you guys as a gift for showing my appreciation of the community here. So today I am announcing the...

:n64: GUESS THE CONTROLLERS GAME!!! :n64:

What is the prize?
The prize for this contest will be coming out of my collection - and it is a Japanese boxed Gold controller! It is complete in original box, controller is brand new, and it has the original paperwork and cardboard insert! I will work out the shipping costs with the winner. :mario:


How do I win?
This game is similar to the "how many jelly beans" game and it's very simple: all you have to do is guess the total number of N64 controllers that I have at this very moment. The person who comes closest will be declared the winner. You are allowed to go over (we are not using Price Is Right rules) - which means that if the actual number is 64, and Person A guesses 60 and Person B guesses 65, Person B will be the winner because they are closer (even though they went over).

What qualifies as a controller?
I will count any controller that is able to be plugged into an N64 console and all of the buttons on it works. Here are more details:
- I will count used/old/unboxed controllers
- I will count brand new, never used controllers
- I will count controllers that are sealed
- I will count controllers that are boxed or in console/full sets
- I will count 3rd party (not made by Nintendo controllers - an example will be ASCII or Hori controllers)

Who can play?
Anyone who has at least 10 posts and have been a part of our forum for at least 1 month. I'm sorry for stipulating this rule but since this is my game/contest and my goal is to give back to the community, I want the prize to go to someone who has been on our forum for some time and is a recognized member.

How do I guess?
Each person is allowed 1 guess, and you simply post your guess in this topic. Simple as that :)

When is the game over and the winner announced?
I will let this contest run for 1 week. All entries (posts) that are entered before October 10th (my time, Pacific time zone) will be valid. I will reveal the answer and winner on October 10th.

I have just finished counting all of my controllers, and the answer will surprise you! In case any of you want a hint, feel free to head over to my gallery (click here) for a starting point on guessing how many controllers I actually have. Remember to read the section above on what counts as a controller and what I'll be counting. Don't base your answer strictly off the pictures from my gallery, as I've collected a lot more since then and there are definitely items in my collection that did not show up on the pictures!

Good luck to everyone! :mario:
