Post Number N Wins: First Person To 256 Edition

Postby threetwoone » Mon May 28, 2018 1:08 pm UTC

I’ve randomly generated a decimal number between 0 and 1. When someone reaches 256 posts in this thread, I will multiply this number by the number of posts made and round up. That post is the winner.
Because Post number N wins is getting way too fast, you have to wait 2 posts before you can post again.
Because I know the winning number N (even though this will be less effective here), I will not be posting here until the end and will just edit this for any clarifications.

It won’t likely be either of those posts. The winning post will be N times the number of posts made, rounded up.

So the winner will be post 0 or post 256?

It'll be some number between 1 and 256, if I read the rules right.

I don't think you have. The game ends when a single player has made 256 posts, but the number is chosen based on everyone's posts, so it will be between 1 and whatever the total number of posts is.

That... Is more complicated than I thought.
