So what do you do when you want to call attention to your rapidly-growing, buzz-inducing prediction app?
You get inspired by the world of sports, you get further inspired by the friendly competition and trash-talk you see in said app, and you come up with a decisive championship tournament.
But what’s great about the result of this inspiration–Play The Future’s Ultimate Future Tournament (UFT15 for short) on Tuesday, March 15–is that it’s actually two tournaments in one.
On one hand, UFT15 pits 15 people who make their living forecasting today what will happen tomorrow against each other in a one-day, winner-take-all, fortune-telling brawl of blazing brains and crystal balls. These 15 are all-stars in their fields; from high-powered venture capitalists, pollsters and academics to the less corporate but way more mystic card readers, psychics and astrologists. And they mean business, because when the day is done, the overall winner takes home a whopping $25,000; $15,000 of which goes directly to the charity of their choice.
On the other hand, UFT15 is also open to the Play The Future player community at large…that’s you guys! Nothing changes, just play along as usual…although we suspect you may be a little more careful, as the day’s top point-getter on March 15 wins $1,500!
UFT15–one day, 15 questions in 15 hours. If this goes well, which we believe it will, there will be many more such special events from Play The Future.
Nonetheless, we’re calling this the Soothsaying Smackdown of the Century; one in which you can root for your favorite prediction superstar…AND become one yourself at the same time!
So, what are YOU doing March 15? We predict…you’ll be predicting!
