Contest #9--September 2013. PLEASE Thumb this list to keep it seen!

ORIGINS: As I was rummaging through the archives of BGG, I ran across a series of contests called "I'm with stupid!" I thought it was a clever game, but a insulting name. Kind of like buying one of those "..for Dummies" or "Idiot's guide to..." books. So, I thought I would host my own...

Here how it works:

1) Entry fee is 1 gg. Please tip this header.

2) Give one response for each of the 11 entries below. Try to match an answer with as many people as possible, you will get 1 point for everyone who answers similarly, this includes yourself. GeekMail the answers to me with the subject:
I am part of the majority September 2013

3) Do not discuss answers. Do not POST your answers on this geeklist until after it ended!

4) On September 30th (or close to it), I will tally the results and post them, and deliver prizes!

--1st place = 50% of all tipped.
--2nd place = 25% of all tipped.
--3rd place = 10% of all tipped.
--4th place = 1 shiny

Note: Any extra donations will automatically be added to the prizes.

5) You may enter more than once. However each new entry must have 11 NEW responses that you have not entered before. You can only win once. (Example: you submit two responses and win 1st and 2nd. You officially will win 1st and your 2nd entry will be ignored and the next person will win 2nd) BTW--this will never happen.

6) The game used in each geeklist list item is off-limits for that question.

7) I will allow comments in order to take suggested questions for next month.

8) I will enter a set of answers as well, however I will not be eligible to win. (I only skim off the top)

9) A tiebreaker will be inserted as number #11. Closest without going over will win the tie.

10) Good Luck!

11) When you are finished, please take a moment and thumb you favorite questions. This will help me make the next contest even better!

Question #9 is now officially the "The best gets ZERO" question.

SPECIAL RULE: The most popular response will get no points!!! Try to answer with the 2nd most popular response.

Name a category that you score in a standard game of Yahtzee.

What will be smallest number tiebreaker response that is NOT repeated by another entry?

Edit: no decimals, fractions, zero, negatives, or anything else tricksy like that!!


Edit #2: Let me try to write this better.

Pick any number. (Positive integers)

The smallest number that is not repeated is the tiebreaker winner.

In case of any tie, the person closer to the tiebreaker winner(without going over) wins.

If that is a tie....then it is a tie.
