UPDATE: This contest is over. PoppaPickles and CincyDojoer were the 1st and 2nd place winners. Congrats to them! Nobody won the bonus prize since nobody picked Malik Jackson would score the game’s first touchdown. Here is how the contest was won…

  • 713 Entries were received
  • 252 of those entries accurately predicted the Broncos would win
  • 8 of those 252 people accurately predicted the total score would be 34
  • None of those 8 predicted that Cam Newton would pass for 265 yards
  • PoppaPickles was the closest guesser (without going over) with 247
  • CincyDojoer was the next closest by guessing 246

Whether you love the game or you hate it, we all come together once a year to watch the biggest event on television. And, if you’re like us, here at the Dojo headquarters, you’re rooting for old Peyton Manning to prove the critics wrong and write one of the greatest stories in sports history! (Yes, we’re located in Denver, can you tell?)

Over the last few weeks, we’ve shirked our traditional cigar contests for football Pick’em Contests instead, rallying the Dojo Nation for an epic last half of quite an entertaining season.

And now, with the final game set for Sunday night, we’ve gathered together a collection of prizes fitting for the occasion!

Grand prize

If you know your limited edition cigars, or if you’ve been on the Dojo app in the last year, you know a cigar titled Sensei’s Sensational Sarsaparilla! In this case, you are also aware of the sought-after nature of these, dare we say, unicorn cigars… These rare and tasty morsels have been sold out for well over a year now, but we have a secret vault where a few bundles remain—Master Sensei himself has cracked the vault for this weekend’s 1st prize!

To sweeten the pot, we’re tossing in a 2-pack of the event-only Liga Privada “A” cigars! Make sure to study your football statistics this weekend, you’re going to need to be on your game to win this 1st prize!

1st place will also receive a shirt, so make sure to include your size in the pick’em questionnaire.

Bonus prize

Our bonus prize winner will receive a 5-pack of Leccia’s new Luchador El Gringo in the bizarre “Frog Splash” size—a box-pressed 4.5″ x 70! This winner will also receive a 3-pack of the very rare 2015 Macanudo Estate Reserve cigars, featuring a 10 year-aged Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper!

The bonus prize winner will also receive a shirt, so make sure to include your size in the pick’em questionnaire.

The bonus prize will only be awarded should someone correctly guess the player who will score the first touchdown in the game. First correct guess wins (only 1 prize awarded).

Our contest this week will be held on Sunday, February 7th. The winners will be announced on Sunday night (or Monday morning) following the big game.

To enter, simply choose the winner of “The Big Game”. As there will likely be many correct guesses, there will be multiple tie breakers. Our first tie breaker will be: guess the total combined score in the Panthers vs Broncos game. The second tie breaker will be: guess the total passing yards from Cam Newton. The third tie breaker will be: guess the total passing yards of Peyton Manning. And the final tie breaker will be the person to submit their picks first. Tie breakers are only used if necessary.
