Thread: IBN 2013 Eurobasket Prediction Game

  1. #1

    Default IBN 2013 Eurobasket Prediction Game

    Since no one has started a prediction game thread, I am volunteering to run the game this year. If someone else was planning on doing this, I will gladly step aside. Just let me know.

    IBN Eurobasket Prediction Game: The Rules
    Submit your predictions each game day to this thread. I will publish the results at the end of each game day (as well as cumulative results as the tournament progresses).

    Please enter the results in the following format:
    ESP-CRO
    If you think Spain will beat Croatia by 12 points, enter in:
    ESP-CRO 12
    If you think Croatia will beat Spain by 31 points, enter in:
    ESP-CRO -31

    The game's points are calculated as follows:
    * if your prediction of the winning team is correct = 3 pts.
    * if you predict the exact point difference of the final score you get 5 extra pts (3+5 = 8 pts)
    * your point difference prediction is off by 1, you get 3 extra pts (3+3 = 6 pts)
    * your point difference prediction is off by 2 = 2 extra (3+2 = 5 pts)
    * your point difference is off by 3 = 1 extra (3+1 = 4 pts)
    * your prediction of the winning team is incorrect = minus 2 pts

    Please note that if you do not predict the winning team correctly, you are not eligible to receive any of the extra points. (e.g. ESP beats CRO by 2, you predicted -1, you do not get an extra point for being 3 away from the actual score because you did not predict that ESP would win the game).

    Good luck everyone!

    Thank you Chris, you're possibly the most appropriate member for this task anyway.

    Thread sticky'ed.

    PS: I think it should be ok to alter predictions until the start of first game (of the day).

    I actually did not hahaha. Well I would change, but I'm stubborn, though you might want to add a -2 to my score right now.
