I am in

That is good news Rosco, now we are 6 (an even number) so we can make a start to the tournament.

If there are no more entries by the end of today, I will ask MrNumbers to make the draw and get the competition under way.

Oh it's not the end of today yet, right? 7 is a better number  ;D
But otherwise I will just skip it

No problem at all, jungleboy is waiting on the substitute bench to make it 8, so you are very much in.

Welcome aboard Sinscerly.

Tnx Steve,

Well I don't get it how the competition will be played, but I think I will find out when we'll start.
Also still feeling sorry for getting Dan fooling me with writing Old on your secret santa package :-[

Nobody knows how it is going to work exactly just yet, as I am still discussing it with MrNumbers. The idea, however, is that you play as many games as you can using the QF, SF and Final set-ups from the 'real' world cup. You have to play at least one of each, but you can play up to 7 (assuming there are 8 of us). Instead of points for winning, which means that, after a few games the tournament can only be won by a couple of people, it is based on points difference. This means that you can narrowly lose every game except 1, and win the other 1, and you can win the tournament!

The idea is to get everyone playing 'for the hell of it' using interesting collections of expansions. It should leave us all eagerly awaiting another game.

Will elaborate tomorrow.

PS. I am 60 tomorrow, so Dan was correct!  ;D
