How Many Beads in the Jar?

Posted by Matt on November 17 at 03:05 pm

If you guess how many beads are in the jar, we’ll give you a $100 Lima Beads Gift Certificate!


The rules are simple:

  • You have until 2pm EST on Monday, November 24th, 2008 to make your guess(es).
  • Guesses can only be submitted in the comments of this post.
  • The winner will be the closest guess (without going over).
  • If there’s a tie, the earliest entry will be the winner.
  • You can guess up to once per day. At the end of the contest, only your most recent guess will be considered.
  • If someone guesses the exact amount, we will announce it immediately. That person will automatically be the winner and the contest will end.

The Prize

The winner will receive a Lima Beads $100 gift certificate. The gift certificate can be used for absolutely anything in the Lima Beads shop and must be redeemed within 1 year. The winner will also be announced on the blog, so the whole beading world will know how incredibly awesome you are!

The first person to guess within 25 beads of the actual amount will receive a $25 gift certificate, so hurry and start guessing, but remember — you only get 1 guess per day!

Helpful Hints

We’ll be giving you a new hint every day. These hints won’t be free, it may take a little bit of research to get the numbers :) Here are a couple of hints to get you started:

  • 11/17 – The dimensions of the jar are 3.5″ W x 3.5″ D x 7″ H
  • 11/17 – The number of beads in the jar is less than the length of the Mississippi River (in miles) divided by 2
  • 11/18 – The Atomic Number of Lithium is not one of the digits in the answer
  • 11/19 – The answer is greater than the number of fluid ounces in four U.S. gallons of milk
  • 11/20 - The number of beads in the jar is less than the number of words a picture is said to be worth
  • 11/21 – The Final Hint! Some of you are soooo close. Remember that when we look for the closest guess on Monday, only your most recent guess will be used. There will not be new hints over the weekend. Today’s hint requires a bit of research, but the payoff if better! The hint: The number of beads in the jar is within 100 of the population (as of 2007) of Holly Ridge, NC USA.

    We wanted to show you someone holding the jar so you could get a better idea of how large it was…. So, we had Matt go out on the sidewalk and Rachel took pictures of him holding the jar. It turned out to be a hilarious good time. Here are some photos…

    Hi Everyone!

    Someone that guessed yesterday won the $25.00 for being within 25 or the correct answer!

    We’ll tell you who it was at the end of the contest.

    The $100 Gift Certificate is still up for grabs because no one has guessed the exact amount yet.

    Remember, you can guess up to once per day and only your most recent guess will be counted at the end of the contest.

    This is the Final Hint! Some of you are soooo close. Remember that when we look for the closest guess on Monday, only your most recent guess will be used. There will not be new hints over the weekend.

    Today’s hint requires a bit of research, but the payoff if better!

    Today’s Hint is: The number of beads in the jar is within 100 of the population (as of 2007) of Holly Ridge, NC USA.

    Hey Kevin and Matt — are you going to check/announce a winner over the weekend or not look at the entries until Monday? I’m trying to decide if I should keep guessing over the weekend or just stick with my Friday entry.

    Great game – thanks!!

  317. Kevin
    Kevin says:

    Staci H-

    We were just talking about this! Matt, Steve, and I are going to do our best to keep an eye on the comments over the weekend. If we see someone guess the winning number (I almost just typed it by accident), we’re going to announce the winner. If no one guesses exactly, we’ll close the comments at 2PM EST on Monday and announce the closest guess (the winner).

    Have a great weekend everyone and thanks for guessing. We’ve had LOADS of fun with this. We’ll definitely be doing similar things in the future.

    So, here’s for leaving it at 43 choices…

    My guess today is 778.
