I think the latter would confuse things and put people on edge about winning. It'd lead to heavier feelings of disappointment especially after making it to the finals. Better to keep it simple. What you could do, is make it so the person wins the number THREE times first instead of simply twice. But you only mention the winner so as not to make people feel that "Damn so close!" feel. Hahaha.

Keep it simple. In my experience as someone who helps organize raffles at my local university for programs, the more complicated a raffle, the worse the results and feelings. Keeping it simple usually works the best.

I like the first idea. Maybe you could give free numbers and then the next number is $2, the next is $3,and so on. That would be pretty cool.

That's a clever idea, but there is a large scale of different age groups here, and not everyone can afford to pay $2 for a virtual ticket. I want it to be as fair as possible for every member here, so everyone will get one number. =)

I think Indigo has a great point. The more complex we make this, this more emotions have a chance to boil over. I know the excitement of making it into the final "round" would be very high, but the downfall would also be steep. One round. You know your odds won't be great, so you won't get your hopes up. And you can be REALLY excited when you win.

I don't think I've gotten a chance to thank you for putting this together, Kaiden. So thank you. You're putting in a lot of effort for a complete stranger.

:D I love the thought of making someone so excited you couldn't slap the grin off their face. I also know how exciting it is to get a top of the line fish imported. Just makes me excited all together. :)

I'm excited so much for this. I hope I win but, I know small odds so I'm trying not to get my hopes up.
