### Post number N wins 2: This time it's actually impossible for flicky to win

Continuing from

faubi's game.

I've randomly generated a secret number N from 1 to 1000. Whoever posts the Nth reply to this thread wins the game!

However, the number is secret, so no one will know in advance what the winning post will be. Once this thread reaches 1000 replies I'll reveal what the secret number N is and who posted the winning post. The more posts you make, the more chances you have to win (though as usual, double posting is not allowed). Since I know what the number N is already, I won't be posting in this thread until the reveal at the end.

I'm not doing any kind of hash thing like faubi did to verify the number, but I am PMing it to myself so that I can check what it is wherever I am as long as I'm logged into the forum.

With all that said, let's go!

Also, since I can't post in the thread, if there's any clarifications I need to make I'll simply edit them in at the end of this opening post like faubi.

You really going to make us wait for 1000 posts?

Very likely. Or maybe in a couple years

it only took the other one a few weeks. Of course, that was with flicky posting.

The first one started in January. I predict this one to take over a year.

After the second win of the bump game, I was thinking about how there should be a rule where the winner cannot participate in the next round

Does that mean you're going to post 10 times?

I'll be so happy if someone wins with just a couple posts. But even happier if the game ends within 4 months

I tried to do that last game, would have been amazing.

Theoretically, a post which is a player's only post is just as likely to win as any given post which is one of a hundred posts by a different player.

Yes, any post is just as likely to win as another post. Which is why this post right here is the winner!

@flicky

At game end you should just quote the winning post so we have a chance to guess the winner.
