Due to the fact that TC only has two members currently, we have decided not to run a full betting competition, but to introduce to you a smaller but similar event. Ladies, gentlemen and robots we welcome:
Cold Winter Snap Competition
In each round a small selection of games will be published. Players can pick 2 to 5 winners from the coupon. Alternatively they can pick the 'Draw Option'. Here is an example coupon:
2 Miner Business v Bombastic 14
2 Flagging*** v Apple Spy 17
4 Scout of Order v The Fantastic Disconnector 4
6 Up M’arshall v Colon Hell 2
3 General Vague v Major Look Major Stare 5
DRAW OPTION 4 (At Least 1 Draw from Games Above)
The number beside each selection represents the amount of points available should that selection win. A player’s score for the round is determined by multiplying the points of each selection together. If any selection fails to win that player scores -5 points for the round.
If you pick the draw option and that loses you also score -5 points for the round. All players start with 0 points.
There is a twist. One or more selections each round will be marked with the Snap Symbol (***). In the example, ‘Flagging’ has this honour. If Flagging fails to win, any player who selected ‘Flagging’ will instantly be out of the competition.
There is another twist. You do not have to bet in each round, but if you have more than 0 points and you choose not to bet in a round, your points will be halved.
Only players with a positive number of points will be able to bet in the Final Round.
EG1 I pick Miner Business, Flagging and Colon Hell. They all Win. I score 2*2*2 = 8 Points
EG2 I pick Bombastic and Apple Spy. They both Win. I score 14*17 = 238 Points!!!
EG3 I pick the Draw Option. There is 1 Draw in total from all the games in the coupon. I score 4 Points.
EG4 I pick General Vague and Scout of Order. General Vague wins, Scout of Order loses. I score -5 points.
EG5 I pick Flagging and The Fantastic Disconnector. They both lose. As Flagging is marked with the Snap Symbol I am eliminated from the competition, but at least I had a good time and lived dangerously.
We hope you enjoy the Cold Winter Snap Competition. Prizes may, but likely will not be available. Round 1 Coupon is published below. Please place your selections in the threas below. If you have any questions, feel free to ask here: http://forum.strateg...tion-questions/
(DISCLAIMER: Any selections that involve matches that have already started will not be accepted. Whether a match has or has not started yet may not be immediately obvious, if there is any doubt then it will not be accepted. Please select responsibly. If you feel you are selecting more than you should be then there are plenty of numbers to call but we won’t be issuing any here)
Most seriously, have fun.
Lots of Love,
The Cold Winter Snap Competition Staff (Staff can play too!)
