The World is Not Created by Genius – Part II

Continuing the discussion of “The World is Not Created by Genius“, I wrote a Chinese blog and created a simple AJAX application to facilitate this game on the Internet. If you haven’t read about the previous article, it is also good. You can play the game first.

The Game

  • Gather a group of people (I have done it for you. Currently, at least 200 persons have entered their numbers already)
  • Each person write down a number between 0 – 100
  • Calculate the average of all these numbers
  • The one who guessed closest to 2/3 of the average number wins

Now you are one of the participant. Please think carefully, and choose a number that seems most promising for you to win the game.

Your name: Please note that the name you entered is public

The number you choose: between 0 to 100

Here is the guess result of the latest 30 paticipants. Check out your position in the game. For explaination of the game, check out my previous article The World is Not Created by Genius.


P.S. AJAX make it very easy to create collaborative application like this, and embed it into a HTML page.

P.S. 2. Please pass the game on to invite more people to participate in the game. The more people involved, the more interesting the final result will be.

  1. It is better to show the result in a new page. Otherwise, the last guesser will be a winner like me. :)

  2. Hmm I agree and disagree… In a way you are right but I thought to be smart and say a bit less than the last number, result is that the total number is (of course) a bit lower than I said lol

  3. Anyone good on Game Theory and Probability out there. There must be a way to determine the winning number.
