Well, technically you and a friend could win one each. Which is why it seems baffling that Nvidia made 77 RTX 2080 Ti Cyberpunk Edition graphics cards.

You’ve got to take your hat off to the licensing folks at CD Projekt Red. We’ve seen Geralt of Rivia pop up in Soulcalibur VI, Monster Hunter World, and Daemon X Machina. (And on Netflix, obviously.)

But now that the launch of Cyberpunk 2077 is (almost, sort of) just around the corner, no doubt their efforts will be moving from the world of The Witcher to Cyberpunk.

The first salvo is this natty yellow graphics card from Nvidia. It’s the Nvidia RTX 2080 Ti Cyberpunk 2077 edition, and it’s going to be very limited edition. How limited? Just 77 of these cards will be manufactured by Nvidia, and you can only win them through a contest.

Now, this is all well and good. The RTX 2080 Ti is basically the top of the consumer graphics card tree right now, and you’ll have to put down over a grand to get even the most basic model. You can’t argue with the prospect of grabbing one for free as a competition prize.

But, as an exercise in basic mathematics, we invite you to spot what’s wrong with Nvidia’s proposal.

They made 77. And you and a friend can win one each, as a pair, by entering the competition together on Twitter, with reciprocal hashtags and whatnot. 77 is an odd number. You and a friend can win one. 77 is not divisible by 2. There’s going to be a remainder. There’s going to be an RTX 2080 Ti Cyberpunk 2077 edition leftover that nobody wins.

Can we have the 77th one for pointing out the flaw in your plan, Nvidia?
