The Bill of Rickies
There are two types of Rickies: Annual Rickies and Keynote Rickies.
The winner of the Annual Rickies is named the Annual Chairman, and retains the rights to the corresponding Twitter account for the full year. This position is awarded every January.
The Keynote Rickies winner is named the Keynote Chairman, and retains the rights to the corresponding Twitter account until the next keynote is held.
Annual winners roll over to preserve the order. For example the 2019 annual winner gets to go first for the next annual picks.
Order for the Keynote Rickies is based on the previous Apple event.
The Loser goes last.
To earn any points, everything written down in the prediction document must come true.
There are no half points awarded in any round.
Picks cannot be reused.
Correct regular picks are awarded with one point .
Correct risky picks are worth two points .
If your Risky Pick is wrong, you lose a point.
Picks must have been approved as “risky” by the two other hosts before the start of the game.
For Keynote Rickies the scoring window starts when the event begins and closes when the picks are scored.
The loser of theFlexies must compensate the winner of the Flexies by donating to the charity of the winner’s choice.
The amount of the donation is $25 per wrong Flexy made by the loser.
Hosts must make a minimum of five Flexy picks.
Flexies may be reused as future Flexies or regular picks.
The winner is determined by comparing the percentage of correct Flexies made by each host.
The money must be donated on-air.
A tie in either the regular picks or the Flexies is to be broken by coin toss. Jason Snell has a lifetime ban on flipping the coin, but Digital Voice Assistants may be used, even by Jason.
