Race to the Bottom (Adam "DC" Derelict)

Welcome to Race to the Bottom, where your goal is to create the LOWEST grossing cineplex. The rules are pretty simple: spend a minimum of $900 to try and create the lowest grossing cineplex bearing in mind the following bonuses/penalties (note that scoring has changed to keep the full season competitive for as long as possible):

Imperfect Cinema (lowest possible grossing line-up): -$5,000,000
Blank Screen: +$2,000,000
Worst Performer:

  • 1-3 Screens: -$2,000,000 for each screen
  • 4th Screen: -$1,500,000 Bonus
  • 5th Screen: -$1,000,000 Bonus
  • 6th Screen: -$500,000 Bonus
  • 7th and 8th Screen: No Bonus

Good luck!

    It was a tough week in power ranks. We had the third highest best score and the fourth highest penalty of the season. Only 4 people were able to break 300 with La Llorona costing a lot of people over 100 points by itself. Here were the top five for week 11.

    @brandonj - 237
    @plexy - 269
    @blinkh87 - 295
    @guyett - 298
    @exxdee - 307
