The first UK Charts Archive Wiki Christmas Game of 2013. Predict chart performances of Christmas songs, and predict the Christmas No. 1.
For Christmas Chart Run Predictions (not to be confused with the main game) you may predict the debut (or re-entry) position as well as its performance until it drops out. There is no official deadline for these predictions, but you may not predict a song after its entry into the Top 100 or Top 40 in the Chart Update. For predicting the Christmas No. 1, you have until Wednesday 25/12/2013 4:00PM (Christmas day) to predict the song.
The scoring for predicting the chart runs works very similar to the Chart Run Predictions Game, except you are allowed to predict the debut or re-entry of the singles. A correct match is worth 500 points and each position out is 10 points off 500. or example, predicting song X to be at 63 on its 12th week when it actually ends on 80 awards the player 330 points, because the player was 17 positions out, which is 10 times 17 (170) and 500 take away 170 is 330. If you predict the single to drop out too early, each week it stays in the Top 100 is -20 off your total score. Also, if the single drops out before you predict it to dropout, each extra week you predicted it to stay in the top 100 is -20 off your score.
Once the single has entered the Top 100 or Top 40 Chart Update, you may not change your predictions for that single.
You do not have to be exact on the actual week, for example, predicting song X to debut at 78 on 14/12/2013 when it actually debuts at 78 on 07/12/2013 still awards 500 points.
Predicting the correct Christmas No. 1 awards 1000 points. If you predict an incorrect No. 1 which is in the Top 100, you get 10 off 1000 for each position out. You may also do a chart run prediction for the Christmas No. 1.
