The guessing strategy might not work. Without any way to coordinate the guesses, the people in North America may be guessing the same exact, wrong, exponents as the people in Europe and Asia. And out of those suicidal folks, most would take the easy way out (like throwing themselves off a cliff) instead of being subject to the wizard's torture before dying.

I doubt more than a billion would be alive after two months. At this time of the year, there might even be more deaths from hypothermia than from starvation.

With that said, I'm guessing 300 years for both the prime and the Moon landing. By that time, memory of 2017 will have faded considerably, and there'll be some debate about whether a return to 2017 conditions is even desirable after all.
