Well, I haven't done either. !+) !+)

But, if I had to choose, I think getting a pick 3 icon is harder. I think it's easier to pick the winners of games then the scores. Scoring is very unpredictable.

I think that you could luckily get a pick 3 icon. I think it takes a lot of skill to get good ladders plus some luck. And a perfect ladder is just insane. So I voted perfect ladder although I am 0-0 on those as well. !+)

LL you have to guess EVERY game right, pick 3 you just have to do it better than everyone else.

I think LL is much harder because it's all in my hands to boom or bust :-o

Ladders are tricky, don't get me wrong. I almost never pick all 16 games right (I I've done it maybe once) but the pick3 is way harder. I'm really bad for some reason at picking scores. I doubt I'll ever even come close to an icon in that game.

I have a pick3 icon on the darkside and the basketball side. I voted perfect ladder (although I guess it might be a bit tougher to get a pick3 icon here due to a higher amount of players...)

I think it's a perfect ladder. There is usually one huge upset at least each week which almost no one picks, and even should you pick it right, you still have to get the rest of the games right.

I have both icons. I think the perfect ladder may be harder since there's only been a few occasions that it's been done. That said though, ladder icons can be won fairly cheaply too. I've seen em get awarded with 4-5 wins before. That's all it took. So I think if you go icon for icon, pick 3 is harder. Unless you compare apples to apples and say perfect ladder to perfect pick3. In which case would be no contest. Hehe.

But my goal since taking over Pick3 two some years ago, was to make it the toughest game out there. Sounds like I am doing a good job at it. :-b

I got my ladder icon with 2 wins :-D

I for the life of me cant get a pick 3 icon. Play every week, have finished 2nd, 3rd, in the top 10 multiple times...just cant put it together with everyone else sucking.

How about everyone not play in Week 3, and I can win it. That would be great.
