Per the rules, water squares win a pair of water wings as a consolation prize if the booster lands in the ocean.... TRUST ME I did NOT want to win this. But win it I did (along with three others) ...

Except of course it's not "floating in one piece" so I'll take my water wings shredded... In spirit. Because I didn't really win.

We all did.

I think the proper prize is that SpaceX ship the rocket debry pieces to everyone who picked the square the debris fell on :D As Elon mentioned the droneship was blasted with shrapnel so there odd to be tons of memorabilia on various squares ;)

I hope that the piece I'm awarded from my square (K-21) is one of the hydrocoptic marzlevanes from the turbo encabulator.  It would make a great centerpiece for my flown hardware display. :)

You might be able to crown 1 water landing champion if we get video! ;)

So obviously no grand prize winner, but this just gives a reason to play again whenever the next FH is ready to fly.  If by some chance SpaceX releases imagery that can confirm where in relation to the ASDS the booster hit, I'll be sending a set of rocket floaties to the corner picker which was closest, even though it did not survive impact, just because the whole launch was that amazing.

I'll help you with that.

So who won?  There was a brief video by spacex that shows the landing attempt.

Nobody won because the center core completely missed the barge.

Any debris that scattered across the deck does not count.

Because the Falcon Heavy Test Flight was successful, it has inspired thousands of people to consider changing the future of space travel.

Yes noone won the primary award, but the water landig bonus was to be determined after video evidence was available which corner it hit closest.

Here is the relevant quote from the rules (emphasis mine)...
Quote
if you pick a water square, and it winds up floating in one piece you will receive a pair of rocket floaties for your efforts!
Definitely didnít stay in one piece, so no winner.
