Qyburn auction is up to $335 and is in progress.

Explain this to me please.

Wouldn't mind some of that $20k aus.

Me and friends are running a calcutta auction among ourselves auctioning the characters one at a time.

The character bids form the prizepool.

We are up to Gendry will post a full list so far

Re: Game of Thrones TV Thread - ***NO BOOKREADERS***



So this is an example auction card. In a secret facebook group, people can bid for the right to "own" Euron Greyjoy. When 24hrs passes between bids, the auction is considered "won" and that person pays the fee.

Once all the 43 characters are auctioned (we are up to number 30 of 43) that will create the prizepool, and the prizemoney is shared as mentioned below.

It is possible to buy a character, and not get your money back i.e Jon Snow costs $1000 and only dies.

How much every prize is worth will be determined by the total bids, and for the deathpool element, how many characters actually die. If only one dies, they would get the whole 50% of buyins. In reality, 15-20 characters will die.

Its stupidly good fun, and I would recommend that 2+2 either runs their own auction, or simply take the values they were sold at, and draft them off at that price (reduced by whatever % to make the competition a good sweat/affordable).

FWIW, I have no intent on running a 2+2 pool as I CBF'ed dealing with international transactions etc...

Re: Game of Thrones TV Thread - ***NO BOOKREADERS***

Hello,

My predictions:

One of the white walkers stabs the Night King with a Valyrian steel dagger, then takes off its face and we find out it's Arya. Because it was Jon's Valyrian steel sword that killed off that group when he took out the leader. And Arya got that dagger from Bran.

Jamie turns face and his incest is forgiven once the Targaryen incest is revealed and everyone is cool with it.

Tyrion and Sansa get back together and make babies.

One more: we find out Cersei has been sleeping with the Mountain to ensure his loyalty and the baby is really his. The Mountain and Cersei get killed and the Hound adopts the baby.

They are awesome predictions and I had fun coming up with them. Did something about them upset you?

Re: Game of Thrones TV Thread - ***NO BOOKREADERS***

nah i just got in the habit long ago of never reading predictions itt because they almost alwyas came from undercover bookreaders. ain't nobody tryin to get spoilt

edit: honestly i thought i unsubscribed from this thread because i didn't want to read years of chatter while waiting- there's a 2+2er who works on set (seen receipts) and he reached out a while back and said it prob wont be back until summer 2019 at the earliest

Re: Game of Thrones TV Thread - ***NO BOOKREADERS***

also the plot leaks seem pretty intense these days, the night is dark and full of spoilers etc


so beware if that's important to you

'Littlefinger is alive' theory is hilarious. People never learned their lesson from the Arya/waif theories in season 6

Re: Game of Thrones TV Thread - ***NO BOOKREADERS***

yeah, maybe in the books idk, but in the show it makes basically zero sense for LF to have faked his death or whatever. part of the reason his storyline petered out is because they couldn't figure out anything else to do with him after BotB, and the rest was to give weight to the ascension of Sansa (and so something happened in Winterfell in S7) as a power-player.

for him to be alive ... for what?
and with like 6 eps to go, battle vs the WWs and/or a Dany vs Cersei feat. Golden Company showdown, they really need to throw LF back into that mix? don't even think they have the time for that really, even if they wanted to.

RIP Littlefinger
