Yeah, I was waiting to see if any more break participants are going to weight in.

I personally feel it should be by the box BUT the majority sees it the other way for now.

Like I stated before, I've never seen it done using straight hits. I've only seen it hits by the box and then any extra hits would be randomized off. I think this makes the most sense and contrary to what other people have said, I think this would make it easier on you to separate everything out by the box. Your the host so it's up to you. Just make sure you state your intentions.

Thanks. Most LCM in the past has always been good about having the correct number of hits, but you never know.

How was your case?

Then do the extra hits go in order or do they get randomized? Say for instance box 3 has 5 hits,the 5th hit being extra. Then say box 5 has 5 hits, 5th hit being extra and so forth. Would Extra hit #1 be the 3rd box extra hit or does the entire extra hits gets randomized?

I'm just wondering what order the extra hits would go. Do both lists get randomized (extra hits and slots)?

Just trying to work out the kinks so that we can all have a vote and have the majority rule one this break.

I still like option #2.

I'm used to seeing the extra hits being randomized at the end of the break. I think that is the fairest way. That way everyone has a new chance of getting something extra.

Photobucket is blocked at work so I will have to look when I get home.

How many boxes did you have out of the case that were totally worthless?

I don't mind extra hits being randomized at the end...but how would the order be? As they are pulled...like extra hit #1, extra hit #2...

I know the slots would be randomized...I was just in a break where the actual extra hits were put in random order as well as the slot order for the random hits. In other words...the extra hits were randomized separately then the slots for those hits were randomized.

I think they should go in order...meaning extra hit #1 goes to slot 1 (after being randomized).

Extra hits, like always, would be randomized to the entire group.

They would go in the order pulled.

I agree, they should go in the order they were pulled. That should be a given.

John,

Send me a PM, I have something to send you.

I may live in Silverdale, WA. but the Navy put me here and I'm not a Seahawks fan. I figured I would give something I have to someone who is. I remember a post of yours from last week so I thought you would be perfect for what I have.

Don't ask what it is because I want that to be a surprise.

Bill

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).
How do they get nothing. they would then be in line for the replacement cards from Panini

I just think it should go as usual. You post the hits slots and the name. That person gets a hit, if there are extras they get randomed off at the end. Lets not twist things up too much.

I don't mean nothing, period. I mean if the example I stated played out like that, none of the slot holder from what should be the last box broken would see a card assigned to their slot.

No. Swerve stated in the original post he does not have a camera. However this is not his first rodeo and he has the trust of the board. This is how he has run his prior breaks.
