Pick a Number

I’ve told you about my favorite game before.

Number Line 1-100

Planet Money from National Public Radio is currently conducting an experiment using a similar game.

Pick a number between 0 and 100. The goal is to pick the number that’s closest to half the average of all guesses. For example, if the average of all guesses were 80, the winning number would be 40.

You can be part of the experiment until 11:59pm ET on Monday, October 10. The winner and an explanation will be posted on the Planet Money blog on Tuesday, October 11.
