EURO 2012 competition

30 May

I am organizing a competition for the EURO 2012 tournament. It’s a very simple one as it only asks people to guess the scores of each game and which team progresses in the tournament. Players get points depending on whether they predicted the correct winner or draw and then additional points if they also guessed the correct score. Finally, more points are earned for guessing the correct Golden Boot Winner of the tournament.

What’s great about this is that once this is completed and submitted (prior to the start of the tournament) you don’t bother with it again apart from the accumulation of points. It has enough luck so that almost anyone has a chance to win.

In case anyone wants to do something similar i am posting the rules below and I am also linking the excel spreadsheet i am using for the score prediction, group standings and then the knockout stage.

HERE ARE THE RULES:

  1. BY COMPLETING THE SPREADSHEET, AUTOMATICALLY THE TABLES ARE UPDATED
  2. EACH GAME WILL BE GRADED AS FOLLOWS WHEN YOU PICK THE CORRECT WINNER OR CORRECT SCORE:
    • FIRST ROUND
      • WINNER -3 POINTS
      • TIE- 6 POINTS
      • WINNER WITH CORRECT SCORE – 6 POINTS
      • TIE WITH CORRECT SCORE-  10 POINTS
      • EACH TEAM TO QUALIFY TO THE NEXT ROUND- 10 POINTS
    • QUARTERFINALS
      • WINNER OF A GAME – 5 POINTS
      • TIE – 8 POINTS
      • WINNER WITH CORRECT SCORE – 10 POINTS
      • TIE WITH CORRECT SCORE – 15 POINTS
      • EACH TEAM TO QUALIFY TO THE NEXT ROUND- 15 POINTS
      • NO CHOICE OF TIE ON OVERTIME DURING THIS ROUND. CHOOSE THE WINNER IF YOUR CHOICE FOR THE 90 MINUTES WAS TIE
