World Cup Pool?

Postby SaintsCanada » Wed Jun 04, 2014 4:11 pm

Any interest in doing one here?

Here's how my friends and I are doing ours. I'm certainly open to alternatives:

Group stage: Pick all 4 teams in order 1-4 for each group.
1 point for each team you correctly pick to qualify.
2 bonus points if you pick the whole group in correct order.
Maximum of 32 points available

Second round: 3 points for each correct pick
Maximum of 24 points available

QF: 5 points for each correct pick
Maximum of 20 points available

SF: 8 points for each correct pick
Max 16

3-4 place game: 10 points for correct pick.

Final: 12 points for correct pick.

The reason for the inflation in points each round would be so that it stays competitive as we move on. Without it, somebody could run away with it by the end of the second round, making the last 2 weeks of the tournament irrelevant to our pool. The first two rounds comprise 56 out of 64 total matches, so I think we need to make the later rounds more rewarding.

We also have a golden boot pick. If you nail the actual golden boot or joint golden boot winner, 15 points (more than one person could win the full 15 points). If nobody gets it right, then whichever of our picks scores the most gets 10 points, or if it's a tie, the 10 points are split evenly. The reasoning being that if 2 or 3 people win with a measly 3 goals or something, you shouldn't win a full 10 points.
