Euro 2017 PREDIXIT, the prediction challenge
« on: July 07, 2017, 04:14:02 AM »

Pit your wits against Europe's best predictors in our game for UEFA Euro 2017 in the Netherlands!

The score prediction competition is open to everyone. You can try to take your 'team' to the top of the league table. If you finish 1st, as well as the glory of victory, you'll win this genuine* Dutch passport which might come in useful in the future.


To be sent to the winner by email (3D printer required)
* fake

How to play:

Copy the form below and guess each team's score in the match. You can post it in this thread, or send me a PM, or email it to:


To keep it manageable for everyone, I've just given you 9 group matches to predict. They include all the games in England and Scotland's group. Later there will be 7 knockout matches, details to follow.

If you want more hints, you can look up the FIFA power rankings lol, the Euro qualifiers, or each team's recent results.

(Late entries - just a thought. If you start after July 16, that's no problem. For the so-called "league", I'll give latecomers some score, like 1 point per game missed.)


Rules:

3 points for a totally correct prediction

You'll acquire points by guessing any of the following:
- right result (1 point)
- right goal difference in the match (1 point)
- one team's score correct (1 point)


For example England v Scotland, if

you say 3-0 and it ends 2-0, that's 2 points (right result and one team's score)
you say 0-0 and it ends 2-2, that's 2 points (right result and goal difference)
you say 2-1 and it ends 0-1, that's 1 point (one team's score correct)

Submit your guess any time before kickoff. The seven knockout matches (QF, SF and final) will have 4 points per game.

can score predictions be sent in (daily) so that the outcomes of earlier matches are known?

God, can you imagine the media's 'Brexit' puns? Luckily this thread rises above that, er..  :-[
