Blog > The 25 million postcards guessing game!

Remember when we celebrated 20 million postcards last October? Well, 9 months have passed, and we’ve already sent five million postcards more! So it’s time to start the traditional guessing contest once again! :)

For those not familiar with the game, it goes like this:

Every member has a chance to submit a bet for the day and time on which they think the postcard number 25 million will be registered. The bets need to be submitted on the contest page.

And of course, there are prizes for the best guesses, sponsored by MOO!

The member who guesses the exact minute when postcard number 25 million is registered will win a pack of 40 MOO postcards (20 classic, 20 luxe) + a surprise set of 100 postcards.

Post Post Post

But there’s more! If you’re not the lucky one, you could still win something: each of the 4 next best guesses (before or after the registering time) will also win a pack of 20 postcards from MOO!

Some rules: each time slot can only be chosen by one person, so the first person to pick that slot gets to keep it. You can change it at a later stage, if you want, but only from the available time slots left. We will close the bets when there are 1,500 postcards left to postcard 25,000,000. Check the contest page for more details.

So… what are you waiting for? Ask your lucky stars or open a spreadsheet to make your calculations… but be fast! Slots tend to run out quickly!

PS – MOO is having a 25% off sale until July 21st! If you follow the link to the special page for postcrossers, a small percentage of every purchase you make reverts towards Postcrossing – so with each pack of postcards you buy, you’re also helping the project. Win-win! :)

I wonder what percentage of the 25 million were "real" postcards? I know some have produced postcards specifically for Postcrossing use, do you think Postcrossing has led to an expansion of what is considered a postcard?

This great project keeps going from strength to strength and proves, I think, just how much good there is in the world. I am loving registering the cards I received today - each of which have brought a smile to my face for one reason or another and I am hoping the cards I sent which are being registered today are doing the same for their recipients. I am looking forward to placing my guess for the 25,000,000th postcard. Best of luck to everyone and long may Postcrossing touch all our lives in such a positive way.
