Just an idea, but anyone care to bet on the total casualty at all the squares by the end of this tournament?

Say, each player who decides to participate pays 1M gold to the winner. 

The winner is the single person who guesses closest (above or below) to the total value. In case of a tie, they split the pot?

All bets must be in by, say, 3 days before tournament ends, that is: 18th of March, 2012, 23:59 server time, as judged by the time stamp on the post.

Disclaimer: Participation and paying the winner is based on the honour system, no one is (currently) regulating this bet.

Bet: I pick 20.5 Million.

Note: I will now place my bet.

Let's have one betting post per person, edit your post to change bets.

Edit: test succeeded.

I reckon it is 9380000 (9.38m)    And this guess is mainly to add to the total jackpot of.. 2 mill! Sleepy

only a few more hours left to place bets! (I thought there'd be more interest that this)

1M gold is quite a lot, and I'd immediately invest it in cows and stuff instead of morbid bets. Ermm

Well, I say 18.512 M, and I have no idea where to look up the current overall casualties (as I'm too lazy to add up all the squares atm).  Thus it's just a rough guess...  =)

I really shoulda checked how much eachs quare already lost.. 9.3m losses was nowhere near high enough. I should have at least doubled my guess :P

**is waiting and seeing on command of Learner**

When I made my guess I think it was around 16M total so a lot of people were probably too low.
