Congratulations to our user Smor for being the top scorer in this week’s episode contest. He’s one of only four people to reap perfect 100% prediction accuracy while predicting “Hardhome,” however he took the lead with 1,400 points thanks to locking in the best odds throughout the week. If eligible, as per our contest rules, he will win a $100 Amazon gift certificate.
This user’s winning predictions were that nobody listed in our predictions center would die, that we would see a white walker, that Tyrion would have a drink, that there’d be no full frontal nudity and that zero dragons would appear.
The white walker question is the one that stumped the most people, as only 39% of our users predicted we would (finally) see one in “Hardhome.” The vast majority — 61% — were predicting we would not see any white walkers this week. Click on the left-hand chart for the episode’s full odds.
Smor earned 1,400 points for correctly predicting all of this week’s questions. However, if he had placed his special 500 and 200 point bets on any of the questions he got correct, he would have wound up with even more points and bragging rights. That’s where the strategy — and fun — comes into play here at Gold Derby when making your weekly predictions.
You can now predict next week’s episode, “The Dance of Dragons” at Gold Derby, so be sure to visit our predictions center and make/update your forecasts before voting closes Sunday at 5 p.m. PT. The eligible user with the highest prediction accuracy and most points will win a $100 Amazon gift certificate.

Remember that coming out on top doesn’t just mean answering that week’s questions correctly. You also have to use your three big bets (500 points and two of 200 points) strategically to score the most game points. If you bet on a longshot who pulls off an upset, you can really rack up the points, so don’t take them for granted.
