I did this before in 2010....and then in 2014.....
Back again! The winner gets $20....or a candle light dinner in Vancouver.
As long as you signed up as a forum member before today, you can play!
First download the excel file
2018 World Cup .xlsx.zip
If you want to play, here’s all you have to do.
1.Post your interest in this forum. (That way I’ll know whom I should be expecting an email from.)
2.Make your picks on each game (winning team or tie game)
3.Rank your Teams in order of who think will win the world cup.
Email the excel sheet to firstname.lastname@example.org with your picks and place in the subject line: ‘(your forum name) picks’ by Friday June 8th
I'll look after the rest!
Here’s the rules.
1. There's a yellow column for you to make picks for each game. If you guess the correct outcome, you'll achieve the number of points listed for the county or tie. Example: In the first game if you pick Russia and they win, you get 1.33 points...If they don’t win, no points are awarded for you. If you picked the tie, and it finished in a tie, you would get 4.82 points, other wise you get nothing. And so on all the way down the list.
2.The player with the most points after the round robin will get be assigned their first choice of team for the round of 16! If there's a tie in points, tiebreaker goes to the forum member who emailed me their list first.
3.The second player will be assigned their first choice of team, unless it's already taken and they'll get their second choice, and so on all the way down the list.
4. If there's less than 16 people that sign up, then it will go back to the top of the list and I'll continue to assign teams until all of them are taken for the round of 16.
I'll submit my own list, and if I win, @annatar and @Bob Kudelski and @Jammer - KO94IIsnes will retire from SNES forever.
