25% of the number of people who reaching various acts will be the number of prizes awarded in each class up to some limit. How will it work if a non-multiple of 4 number of people are in the bin?

  • Rounded down? (conservative, but then if only 3 people reach Act IV, for example, nobody wins)
  • Rounded up? (4 to 5 people would see everybody's odds go from 25% to 45% chance to win)
  • Rounded down but minimum of one?
  • Could also be rounded traditionally (I.e. down at 5, up at 7, discretion of the team at 6) – LessPop_MoreFizz May 17 '12 at 22:18

    We'll buy one of the prizes and cut it into pieces, of course – David Fullerton May 18 '12 at 3:39

    @LessPop_MoreFizz If it was rounded traditionally then it would also be up at 6. – Mr Smooth May 18 '12 at 3:42
  • Maybe everyone will win. Or maybe bees. Lord, I hope it's not the bees... – agent86 May 21 '12 at 12:29

Good question - since this wasn't clear in the rules, here's what we'll do:

If less than 4 people finish a level, we will still award one prize. If more than 4 people finish a level but it's not a multiple of 4, we'll use traditional rounding rules to determine the number of people to win prizes.
