Competition- How many? Winner announced on Monday

Community Member

Hi all, just thought of this old game where you look at a jar full of something, then guess how many is in the jar ..., I always liked trying to count whatever it was from all angles. I remember counting coloured Jellybeans and another one with marbles. This one is a photo of marbles in one of those 1kg flour containers. If one turns it around one would see all different sized marbles in the container.

Well feel free to guess as many times as you like.

The winner will be announced on Monday.

I attempted to turn the photo around, but could not work it out. Anyway not to worry.....

Guess away!

Hi T,


the container is 22cm tall from top to bottom.

and 10cm wide.

and the marbles are tipped out and being counted at this very moment as I am typing.

Mmm, so I need to revise my estimate down a bit I think.

Unlimited guesses you said.

So ........... 122

Yeah guess as many times as you want T. So far you are obviously the closest.

Yeah I am, arent I? Ha ha. Because as you already know how many are in there, you obviously cant guess.

I was always hopeless as these guessing games. Way off the mark. No doubt I am here too.

Anyway, I started high and am working my way down.

Next guess ............ 87

Ah way to go T.... you are still the closest
