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:

 

 

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

 

 

OR

 

 

  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.

 

 

 

Example Scoring

 

 

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!)

Hi guys,

what fantastic gamblers you all are. I see that I am the pick of the draw here. Why not put your money on me? I feel odds on to beat Hielco :-)

 

Particularly sevenseas's choice to go with Hielco I find a bit disappointing and worrying too since I sometimes play friendly with him. He should now what I am capable of...

 

I guess I cannot participate due to the fact that I am playing one of the games now am I?

Greetings, and hoping to surprise you all,

Moghedien

Hey Scottrussia,
of course not. In some sports betting on yourself or your opponent gets you arrested. I will try my best to upset him no matter if I bet on myself or not. If staff says it is ok to bet on your own game of course I will bet on me, myself and I.

Hahaha, sorry Moghedian :)

 

I'm not much of a gambler.. as much I want the outsiders to win I pick the safer odds. ;) Indeed I've played you many times and we have had many fun and interesting games.  You have a lot of talent and play the game very well, even when I win it's never an easy game. 

 

However, Hielco, Sohal, Enigma, Morx and all the top players are eons above our level. They're just too good at this game. Minus the lucky wins we might get every 10 games I can never beat them properly.


I play as Sevenseas & Don't Cry

maxroelofs,

 

You cannot choose who is allocated the Snap Symbol. For this round, the Snap Symbol has already been allocated to... maxroelofs! This means that any players who selects maxroelofs to win will be eliminated if maxroelofs does not win.

 

For the record your selection of Carlo Magno, Sohal, Zoografos is accepted.
