A deck of cards can be the ultimate weapon for deception. But this week's SNC is about the box. Not the card box. Just a box. Attached to this forum post is a picture of a box. Inside the box are cards. A lot of cards. To give you an idea of perspective, the box is about 6" tall, 15" wide, and 10" deep. That's a pretty big box.

This Saturday Night Contest is about one simple question: how many? How many total cards are inside the box? To give you some additional perspective, the box is sitting on a scale; that coupled with the dimensions (rough) of the box might help you out. Three guesses may be submitted by each member. The first person to post the accurate number of cards in the box wins. All guesses must be in on or before 11:00pm EST; the winner will be announced shortly thereafter.

If no one correctly guesses the actual number, the member who is closest will win. Winner takes home a 6 pack of Bicycle Guardians, shipped on the house.

guess b: space taken up by 144 decks (1 gross)......I just noticed the picture (didn't load before) and I see that the cards are NOT inside the boxes......so I've added roughly 8 more cards to compensate for the thickness of the card boxes.....and came up with a total of:

8640 cards

I'm going to say none, but then that may just be because I've become too used to thinking OUTSIDE the box.

Guess 3: 6480 cards.....it's a gross (if the measurements of the box is accurate) and I'm assuming 2 layers of 18 decks are missing....totalling 36 missing decks....it's what it looks like from the top of the box...so I've reduced my second guess by 2160 cards.....

#2 - 108
#3 - 104

That's my lot. (Kinda wasted my first one, "outside the box" doesn't really work when they are clearly inside :p)

Goodnight.
