I invited people to play and kept the game going for a week. I was hoping for a few more participants than I go but it was nice to get 76 people take the time to play.
The winning guess was 15 and this was guessed by a single individual who did not leave a url but whose google username makes me think their name is Dalibor Smid: so congratulations and thanks for playing :)
The distribution of the guesses is fairly traditional for this experiment with peaks at the guesses that are 2/3s of the previous peak (66,44,29, 19 etc...).

I'm going to leave the game up there and reset it. I'll let the data store fill up until reaching 200 people and then reset it again (assuming 200 poeple ever decide to play :) etc...
So if you want to have another go please do go play:
