Last One Standing - Game 1

Post by dunc » 02 Aug 2018, 17:41

As we are all, by definition, supporters of Posh, I am assuming we are more interested in what happens in League 1 than in the Premier League.
Therefore, I was proposing to run this competition this season on League 1 fixtures only.
It also has the added advantage of normally being played over one or two days, rather than Premier games played over three or four days.
There is also the benefit of a 46 game season, rather than 38 game season, so we should be able to squeeze an additional game in over the season.

Last One Standing - Game 1

Post by dunc » 02 Aug 2018, 17:41

All you have to do is predict a team that you think will win in each week.
Everybody and anybody can and is welcome to enter.
Each contributor can have up to two entries, but must be separately marked.
Round 1 is for games to be played on Saturday 11th August 2018.
Deadline for entries will be at kick off of the first game of the round.
If you miss the first game, there will be another one in a few weeks time.

To progress to the next round you have to pick a team that wins.
If the team chosen loses or draws you are out and must wait until there is a winner of that game and a new game follows.
In the event that nobody picks a winning team -
All those that pick a team that draws will effectively stay in, those that lose will be out.
If all teams chosen lose then the game is null and void and all players are eligible for a new game.
For the following rounds of each game those that are still standing will be required to pick a different team than previously chosen.
You may pick a team already chosen by someone else in each round.

Every Game Winner during the season obtains a bye in Round 1 of the Grand Final.
The Grand Final will commence on or shortly after Fixture Week 38.
This means that the player will enter the Grand Final in Round 2 and will also mean they have an additional League team to choose from for each round of the competition.
In the event of a player winning a second Game during the season they will obtain a second bye for Round 2 and therefore enter the competition in Round 3.
