Ladies, gentlemen and robots - from the makers of the Pyramid Lottery - we welcome the return of:


Cold WinterSnap Competition


In each round of WinterTourn 2018 a small selection of games will be published. Players can pick 2,3,4 or 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 in orange 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 in total 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 anothertwist.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 WinterSnap Competition 2018.

I hear you asking about prizes. Calm down, there is a £50!!! prize for the winner, subject to the conditions in small print at the bottom of the page.

The coupon for Round 1 will be published in this thread once the draw has been made. Please place your selections in the threads below. If you have any questions, you may also ask them in this thread.

(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 WinterSnap Competition Staff (Staff can play too!)



Conditions for the £50 prize:

1. The winner of the Cold Winter Snap Competition is the player with the most points at the end of the tournament.
2. To be eligible for the £50 prize, the winner of the Cold Winter Snap Competition must have scored a positive number of points in each round of the competition where a coupon is published
3. To be eligible for the £50 prize, the winner of the Cold Winter Snap Competition may never select only 2 or 3 picks from each coupon (i.e. the player must have selected either 4 picks, 5 picks, or the Draw Option in each round of the competition where a coupon is published)
4. Only one entry per person is permitted. Only entrants that participate in WinterTourn 2018 as a player are eligible for the £50 prize.

Hi
If I pick someone to win and he draws but then wins the rematch, does that count?

Good question.

No - only the first match counts - otherwise the 'Draw Option' would never happen.

I used to play against a few drunken idiots in College and University. I just recently discovered this game online, playing my first matches against real-world opponents. After 100 games, I'm now one of the top 10 players in the world.
