re: Footbal Fever 2014 World Cup

Heya Peeps.

 

I've been thinking of setting up a World Cup game that would be accessible to all and not necessarily for those more versed in the beautiful game. The easiest option would be to have a sweepstake where people pick a random team and the winner takes all, but that doesn't seem like much fun if you happen to be unfortunate enough to get someone like Scotland... Oh wait, they didn't make it :p, but you know what I mean.

So the idea i have runs roughly like this

Players randomly pick 4 teams, 2 from the top half of the draw and 2 from the bottom. Players who roll 2 teams in the same group will be able to roll again.

 

Points are rewarded as follow

     5 points for a win

     3 points for a draw

     1 point for a loss

Teams would also receive 2 points per goal scored

an additional 2 points would also go to the team with the 'Man of the Match award (according to the official website)

 

At the end of the knockout stage players will receive points based on their position

     10 points for 1st

     5 points for second

     3 points for 3rd

     1 point for 4th

 

Additional points are also earned depending on what round the team gets to

     1 point for last 16

     3 points for quarter finals

     5 points for semi finals

     10 points for finals

 

To make it a bit more interesting deductions could be made for the following

     -1 point for a yellow card

     -2 points for 2 yellow card (leading to a red card)

     -3 points for a straight red

 

How does that sound. Because the picks are random it doesn't require any real knowledge of the game but can still offer a bit of fun.If you've got any ideas for improvement please let me know.
