Blog > 60 million postcards coming up... guess when!

A few years ago, we accidentally heard about a pub in Bournemouth in the UK auspiciously called “60 Million Postcards” and thought “Wouldn’t that be a great place to throw a party when Postcrossing reaches 60 million postcards?!” And then… you know… The pandemic came and everything changed, naturally. We’re a little sad we can’t fulfill this silly plan, but not all is lost — we can still have our traditional milestone guessing game!

60 million postcards!

If you weren’t around for one of these before, the idea is simple:

Every member has a chance to submit a bet for the day and time on which they think the postcard number 60 million will be registered. The bets need to be submitted on the contest page.

Easy, right? Just place a bet for the minute you think lucky postcard number 60,000,000 will be registered according to your own predictions. Feel free to have a look through Postcrossing’s statistics page if that helps, or maybe crack a fortune cookie (or some eggs?) to come up with a good time slot — anything goes!

And naturally, there will be prizes! The postcrosser whose bet is the closest to the exact minute when postcard number 60 million is registered will win a box set of 100 postcards, and the 6 next best guesses (before or after the registering time) will receive a pack of 20–30 postcards each. 🎉 Hurray!

Some rules: each time slot can only be chosen by one single person, so the first person to pick that slot gets to keep it. You can change it at a later stage if you’d like, but only from the available time slots left. The bets will be automatically closed when there are 1000 postcards left to postcard 60,000,000. Check the contest page for more details.

So, give it your best shot… but be sure to do it soon as good slots are usually taken quickly. Keep sending postcards, and good luck everyone!

You can stilm have the party when Germsny reaches the ID DE-60000000 - that cannot take very long - or you ask the pub owner to change the name to 70000000 postcards and celebrate when that number is reached.

I've participated in this game for several of the previous milestones...only came "close" a couple of times to the actual guesses, However, it's also fun to see which Postcrosser sent and which Postcrosser received that upcoming awesome "can't believe it's the 60 millionth" postcard.
We're all winners with Postcrossing.
