I like the circle idea. I think that would greatly eliminate the possibility for a tie, even if you don't allow decimal places.

Or maybe instead we just require 4 decimal places. I think someone suggested that. Seems like the easiest solution.

Or, equivalently, increase the range by a factor of 10,000...

I guess. But for some reason decimal places seems more fun.

Is that because you're self-conscious about things that dangle down lower than you?

Or is it that you rarely get the point and decimals give an opportunity within your reach?

Awesome game by the USA. Pretty similar to this one... close, back and forth game, until the US just decided to take it.

I at least got the Swedish women prediction right
