2017 FIFA Confederations Cup Challenge - MWCBoard Edition

Recommended Posts

My first ever game/challenge created on this forum, so here it goes:

This year, 8 teams will participate in the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup and this is the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup Challenge! MWCBoard Edition!

Here are the basic rules:

1 point per correct group stage result picked. 

3 extra points per correct group runner up picked.

5 extra points per correct group winner picked.

10 points per correct semifinal winner picked.

15 points for picking the correct winner of the 3rd place game.

30 points for picking the correct winner of the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup.

Whoever accumulates the most total points wins the challenge!

Im going to start by making this competition with a maximum of 8 different posters. If there is more demand for this game than originally anticipated, then I think we could expand the number of competitors to 10 players, but to start we will try to find just 8 posters willing to play.

Last day to enter this challenge will be June 16th, 2017

If you want to participate in this challenge, please indicate so in this current thread, then go ahead and post your predictions in this thread as well:

FYI - @ExplorerSunDevil: I'm adding the Sign-Up list here and I also edited your predictions post to correct the math. You had Germany and Chile tied with 6-points in Group Play, when you meant 7-points.

Also, calling @jdgaucho for that 8th spot. This looks like something you may be interested in.

I'd join and if it's a go we should move this to the sports board...I never come this deep into MWC Board territory.

I can certainly expand to 10,

EDIT: I just want to be careful because there are only 8 teams in the tournament and and we might get a lot of entries with mostly the same picks

^Thank you, Mugtang/Moderator for correcting that miscue of mine!^

According to your posted picks, you actually have:

Russia 1-1-1 4 points

Mexico 1-1-1 4 points

So are you picking Russia to advance on point differential?

Also, a typo in Chile vs Cameroon match.
