I think #1 is the best option of the 2.

1) Hits based on a per box basis. Each box advertises 4 hits so, anything pulled after the 4th hit in a box would be set aside to a) either fill a missing hit in another box or b) randomized at the end of the break.

Either works for me. I personally think 2 would be easier to do for you (assuming we'll have a hot box or two if they do those again).

Either option is fine with me...what about the extra hits going to the team listed instead of randomizing them off?

I think its gotta be option 2. Just because I know, lets just say I have slot 25 and a big hit lands there, but its the 5th in a box, well, I would be highly annoyed to see it randomly assigned later ...

Anyhow, definitely voting option 2

I vote Option 2, less headaches and anything left over at the end gets randomed.

For the lack of time to go through this thread, has a date and time been established for this break?

Slacker! To my knowledge Steve, break date hasnt been established as I'm not sure Swerve has the case tracking info to determine when its gonna land.

I don't ever remember doing straight hits.

I think it should go like option 1. There are 4 hits to the box (supposed to be) so for example slots 1-4 would be Box 1 Hit 1, Box 1 Hit 2, etc.

If a hit is missing, you can either give that person an extra hit from a box that had one or contact Panini to get the missing hit. That's exactly what happened to me on the Absolute group break and I'm fine with the host of the break getting my card from Panini.

If we do it with Option 2, what happens in this example....Lets say 4 boxes were each short 1 hit......That means that Slot holders 93-96, who should have gotten the hits out of box 24, WILL GET NOTHING!


I say you have to do it hits by the box. It makes the most sense (at least to me).

Very good point, and is part of the reasoning I went with option 1 myself.

Case is shipping today so it will be here on Friday. So, Friday night break! Hopefully there will not be a UPS ordeal like last time.

You still haven't answered how this break is going to be done, hits by the box or straight hits?

As I previously stated, I think it should be hits by the box. Please read my comments on page 17 of this thread.

Bill I just opened a 24 box case of this and every box had the intended number of hits and 1 box had an extra hit. I hope this is true for this break.
