Euros 2016 Prediction Score Game (Inter-Forum)

Post by daib0 » Thu Jun 02, 2016 7:41 pm

I don't want to step on your toes at all, but I'd like to mention we are doing a complete game which goes right through the tournament on about eight to ten forums or so. Have a quick look, for example, on the the Blackpool BHS Forum: http://www.backhenrystreet.co.uk/thread ... 1B7y5GLTGg

If you liked the idea it would be fairly easy for me to co-ordinate on here too, but like I said I don't want to get in the way if it's at all confusing with anything else ... but seeing as you've been really splendid participants over the last few seasons on the Inter-Forum games I figured it might be up your street!

what d'ya say lads?!

Yep, that's what I think, can rely on some of the regulars on here. OK, HERE GOES!!!




Euros 2016 Prediction Score Game (Inter-Forum)

Introduction


The "Euros Match Scores Game 2016" is on this forum together with just a very few other special forums. But each forum will have its own individual competition, you play against each other on here and not against other fan club sites, though I will give the highest points of all for top placings just for interest. It’s a fun competition, you make a prediction and then sit back and enjoy! Who’s in on this?
Reading - Royals Rendezvous
Blackpool - Back Henry Street
Peterborough – The Posh Forum
Sunderland – Black Cat Chat
Leeds – LUFC Talk
West Ham – Cockney Boys
Liverpool – Talk the Reds
Wigan – This Northern Soul
Bournemouth – Court Offside
Blackburn - RoversTalk
(probably) West Brom - BaggiesZone



It will be divided into some 8 stages, as we progress through the competition. At first with taking note of the scores for the home nations games, and then from the knock-out stages each round for all remaining teams.

What is the basic idea of the competition then?!

For the group stages and all rounds up to and including the quarter-finals you make score predictions and there are points (max. 6 per game, always at least one point even if totally wrong for making an entry!) awarded after you give your guesses of the EXACT scores (later on, for the SF & final these points go from 1 to 10 and with extra bonuses, but that will be made very clear when we arrive there!).

Each stage will be a separate little comp in itself and according to your prediction scores each round OVERALL finishing place points will be awarded to people for the first five placings. That is in terms of points 5 - 4 - 3 - 2 - 1 (and there may be ties on each placing so there could be more than five people with points per round).

The following stage will also have its own 5-4-3-2-1 points so these are added on to the first scores and so on. You go mounting up your prediction score through the tournament. The overall winner is he or she who has most points from adding up ALL the stages. The top predictors can truly claim they are experts at this!! Obviously though, if you miss a round or two you have less chances of finishing high up, though anyone can join at any point and is welcome.

It will be dead easy, simply giving a score prediction before-hand. For the semi-finals and finals there will be higher points available for each individual game prediction, and a few extra bonus points available on the table; however from those round winners we will award the 5-4-3-2-1 marks for the finishing positions of excellence as normal.
However – for forums not arriving at three or four or five participants, I’ll also be posting the added up points for EACH match in an inter-forum list, so still very much worthwhile taking part …

In the knock-out stages we are looking at FT at 90 mins if a result produces a winner, OR at 120 mins of play (end of Extra Time) regardless if the game produces a result or is a draw and goes to penalties – meaning that the 120 mins score is the DEFINITIVE for us so this could be a draw (therefore penalties are NOT counted as part of this game ... )


Careful!

The Euros 2016 kick off on 10th June but as we do not know who will proceed to the next stages or rounds you will need to tune in regularly to this topic after the group matches have finished.


Let’s get started!!!

First maybe read through the complete spiel on this http://royalsrendezvous.co.uk/topic/10499304/1 , or if not just follow my example next post and that’s it!
For the group stages and all rounds up to and including the quarter-finals these are the points (max. 6 per match) awarded after you give your guesses of how you see the EXACT scores (later on, for the SF & final points go from 1 to 10 and with extra bonuses!).

POINTS to be gained ...

EXACT SCORE with correctly named winning team 6 points

RIGHT RESULT and winning goal margin correct (e.g. you say a team wins 3-1 but it finishes 4-2, or 2-0) or a draw 'one goal out' (e.g. you say 1-1 but it is 2-2) 4 points

RIGHT RESULT (but winning/draw goal margins out) 3 points

WRONG RESULT but reward for an entry! 1 point
+ Postponed or Abandoned? In this unlikely event the game is void, but you are awarded two points for the inconvenience!

Editing of any of the predictions is allowed up to kick-off time of the first match played but then are counted as definitive ... but please, it is YOUR responsibility to tell me on the thread or by PM if you change your entry otherwise I may not see it!


------------------------------------------------

SO TO KICK OFF …

a reminder of what matches we are talking about as the competition opens up, I’ll need your predictions for THESE matches first:

A – First batch of group matches
We ONLY need the home nations score (as shown below), not every game played!
Group stages: first games (all times CET)

That's the stuff :)
Sounds like lots of rules but it isn't - just give the scores as we go along and I'll do the rest, no problem ...
