Remember the xkcd bracket? Let’s try and make one, right here!

How in the world does this work?
It’s simple. You PM me literally anything (following the site rules, of course), and after a few days, I’ll collect everything and make a bracket out of them! Multiple items are encouraged, but please don’t go overboard with them.

Okay, but what do we do with the bracket?
We run it, of course! First, people submit a bracket prediction. Then, we run the bracket using voting. Correct predictions on round 1 give 1 point, round 2 gives 2 points per correct prediction, round 3 3 points, round 4 5 points, round 5 8 points, etc. (It follows the Fibonacci sequence) Whoever has the most points by the end of the bracket wins.

Bracket submissions end on (expired on 2019-02-05 12:28:36).

It’s been one day and already we have 15 different items in the bracket from 4 people! I’m aiming for at least 32, but more would always be appreciated.

Do we have to predict the whole bracket?
