As if the saga of the longest election campaign of all time wasn’t enough, fan of The Gurgler have sit through not one but two election night tipping games. This is in addition to our Election night Bingo which was part of our 2016 Election Guide that we forgot we did some time ago.
But some people can’t get enough of Election related stuff, and this is aimed squarely at the two people who visit our website who fall into this category.
So, get your election pencil and tipping mindset ready for the Golden Colston O Chee MMMMedal Senate Tipping Game.
HOW TO PLAY
It’s easy and impossible, and will take only a bit longer than folding the 13.5 metre Senate voting paper small enough to fit into the ballot box this Saturday. Well for those suckers who haven’t voted early.
There are only 37 different Senate Parties on offer at this election, and the inconvenience of having to select at least will not only cause a surge in informal votes but will take a shitload less time than our tipping comp.
Your job is to tip all 37 Senate Parties in order of their share of the primary vote, sounds easy because it is. Sorry no independent as that becomes too hard for us to ignore to mark.
We have supplied a list of all the 37 Parties on offer, with a short explanation on the principles to assist you to put them in the right order. This may even make your choice on Saturday easier. Pirate Party first, then others 2nd to 6th preference.
HOW TO ENTER
Using the below table, put your selections in the first column somehow and send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject Golden Colston O’Chee – why not check out the prize on offer after the table too.
