ExpectNet Free Version
An ExpectNet baby pool is a place where expectant
parents and invited guests can guess the gender, weight, length, and
birthdate and time of the new baby! The basic game is free, and among the
features shown below, it includes:
- Set the game up for one baby, twins, or triplets!
- Choose English or metric units!
- Lock the game so that no more guesses or changes are allowed as the due date approaches!
Unlock the full potential of your baby pool by upgrading to the full version!
Once the baby is born, those
guesses are compared to the birth stats to determine an overall winner
and a winner in each category. Penalty points are assigned depending
on how far the guess is from the actual value. To calculate a player's
overall rank, the points from each category are totalled. Points
are assigned as follows, however they can be changed by the game host:
- incorrect gender: 400 points
- birth date & time: 5 points/hour
- weight: 5 points/ounce or 0.2 points/gram
- length: 10 points/inch or 4 points/centimeter
The winner is the person with the fewest points.
This is one of many possible methods of calculating an overall
winner. For a game with multiple births, an overall winner is calculated
for each baby.
In order to host a new game you have to
register. You will
have an Account Page where you can set up and monitor
games that you host, and/or monitor your guesses in other people's games. Each
game consists of a Game Page that shows all the guesses that have been entered
and calculates the results after the birth. If you host a game, you will also have a Game Control page
that allows you to change the game settings
including how many guesses participants can enter, whether English or metric units
are used, and what the game greeting contains.
