The tie breaker is ambiguous. I believe it was meant to decide who was the winner if two or more posts correctly guessed the same price for the same item. I doubt if anyone thought that two different cards could both end up being the highest priced cards in the auction.
Just my fifty seven dollars and seventy seven cents worth of "FUN DEBATE"
Other opinions? Sam Majors
P.S. I think that if Post #27 is also declared a winner, and I think I can speak for him, he should and would refuse to accept any winnings as this is just a "FUN DEBATE"
All fair and fun points, Sam. The only thing is that the intent of the game is to find "the winner" so in that line of thinking, the ambiguity was less important than declaring "the" winner (a singular winner).
