Welcome back for the 4th game in this season's inaugural Grind Prophecies!

If you're just joining us, you've still got plenty of time to get into the game. I'll continue to post the basic guidelines for a few more games just to make sure everyone's got it down.

Grind Prophecies Rules November 2014

The TL;DR version:

  • The Grind Prophecies are a monthly contest, in this case it also includes the two games from October 29th and 31st and ends on the final game of the month on November 30th.
  • The goal is to earn points every game (contest) and to have the most at the end of the month.
  • Points are earned by participating in the contest post I'll publish for each game. You'll guess or answer (4) questions pertaining to the outcome of the game with an optional fifth question in which points are wagered.
  • You MUST submit your answers PRIOR to tipoff in each game. Late answers are thrown out.
  • The final two game submissions will be emailed directly to me so that the leading scorers can't play it safe and base their answers off of those who are closest in score.
  • The first place prize is a replica Memphis Grizzlies jersey of your choice! ($100 value!)
  • Anyone is welcome to play, but prize winners must be 18 years of age and live in the USA or Canada (excluding Quebec), but if you have a US address we can work something out.

Grind Prophecies Tips

  • Play EVERY game. Participation will garner you a lot of points in this contest.

  • Questions 1 & 2 will always be the same. Questions 3-5 will always be changing up.

  • The Grindmaster will almost always be the leading scorer, but could include others.
