How to “Party Jelly Bean Challenge” Guide
Here are the 4 jar levels
The numbers underneath each picture indicates winners in that jars range. These are not every winner but a huge chunk of the winners.
This is my personal strategy… When I open up the Jelly Bean Jar I see which level I have. When I see which of the 4 I have I take one of the known winning numbers in that range I guess it. If it is SO CLOSE I guess all of the numbers surrounding that number.
Say I open a low jar and Guess 187 and Get SO CLOSE I then guess 186 185 184 188
I usually go in order of the numbers. You have 5 guesses per jar in the Parties.
If I open a jar and guess a winning # from previous and get Great Guess, I then take another winning number than is more than 12 away from it and guess it.
Say I open a low jar and guess 187 and get Great Guess I then take the next winning # that is more than 12 away. Sometimes I do it lower and sometimes I do it higher. I would guess 174. If I get a Great Guess Again I try the next winning # higher than the 187 and guess 206.
The strategy of guessing the numbers surrounding a known winning number has netted me so many jars.
Lowest Range – Winners
220 x 5
Highest Jar – Winners (Even though this is the highest jar it is not completely full. There have been times when The SO CLOSE gets over 500 in this range)
474 x 5
475 x 3
476 x 3
477 x 2
490 x 2
From our experience we have yet to come across a full jar over 600 beans. Also, we have not had a full jar of 500 beans. There have been many different opinions on the amount of jelly beans in a full jar. This thread is based on our experience only within a 600 jar range.
Here are the approximate ranges we have narrowed it to:
600 range jar
So Close…………..Within 1-11 beans away approximately
Great guess………Within 12-54 beans away approximately
Not a bad guess..Within 55–85 beans away approximately
You’re way off……86 beans or more beans away approximately
This range is our average range that we experienced. We have encountered a few jars where the ranges had an even greater deviation. We will make changes to these ranges as we continue to work on the party jars.
Unlike the 10,000 jelly bean challenge jars that have a different picture for every 99 numbers., we have seen 4 different pictures of jars with 4 levels only.
Lowest (just above bottom of label): 150-233 approximately
Middle of label: 234-349 approximately
Just above label: 350-454 approximately
Highest: 455-515 approximately
It helps to schedule your jelly bean game last. You will be able to continue guessing until the party ends. The extra time is very helpful when using multiple pets.
