the contest ended with no one able to guess my top three in the list of ten. many guessed two out of three and so to be fair, what i did was to rank my top ten and used the pointing system to pick the winner. here's my top ten ranking
 Thailand  Nepal  Japan  Laos
 Russia  Mongolia  India
 Turkey  Maldives
if you have China in your list it will equate to 5points, Maldives with 3points and Turkey with 1point. so you can compute your score and whoever got the highest score gets the price. are you the highest? two got the highest answer and the first of the two to comment here will get the price. good luck to the two and thank you to all those who participated. watch out for weekly contest in December.even if you did not win, make sure you have this issue, it's too cheap for its price. you'll rarely find it but it's usually available in Fully Booked.
