I was very confused by some of the guesses in that game. Why did so many people guess near 50 in round 1? Why did everyone go for the unstable equilibrium in round 2 instead of the stable one near 4.5? Why does Calamitas' strategy make sense? Why the random square roots UoS? I just tried to guess how far off the stable equilibrium people would be guessing, and in the first two rounds I way underestimated.

Props to faust for submitting an exact fixed point all three rounds.

I picked what I wanted my guess to be to like 1 decimal place. Then I squared that, picked a random number close to that, and submitted the square root of that, something with a bunch of decimal places. It was just a lazy way to have a lot of decimal places to make ties less likely. By the 3rd one I thought there was really no chance of a tie anyway but I just did it to keep the pattern.

But ties are good :-D

"If there is a tie for the winner, each tied player scores 9 points,

**MINUS** 1 per additional player who tied with them"

Doesn't sound so great to me
