Yes folks, its that time of year again! This is the fifth year we'll be running the NFL Football Pool Game here on Sound Machine. My how time flies!!

I'm getting a late start at it this year. But since the Pre-Season is just for practice anyway, and doesn't count towards the Season Average, I think we'll be ok.

Here's hoping we get everyone to return to play the game, and maybe even a few new players!!

OK, I should give a brief overview of the game to refresh memories, and for anyone new contemplating playing.....

The game is fashioned after the basic Office Pool you see at work, where you pick the winning team of each game played that week. You get a certain amount of points based on how many games you guessed correctly, as well as two Bonus Questions.

Each week, I post a "Game Open" announcement in this thread. You make your picks by posting said picks in the thread for that week. Scoring is based on the percentage of points you earned, in comparison to the amount of points available to be earned that week (this is based on the number of games played in a given week).

Your score for the week is then averaged to scores from other weeks to get your Season Average ranking.

Here are the results for Pre-Season Week 1:

1. 69.118 The Aceman
2. 68.971 Marianne
3. 63.088 chadwick
4. 62.206 cavies79
5. 56.176 Russell


For the pre-season, I'm just using one workbook for all three boards to post the recaps. You'll find your board in the appropriately marked tab in the workbook, as well as a tab for all the combined boards. When the Regular Season starts (and progresses), I'll have a separate workbook for each board that will track a variety of interesting stats.

Access the preseason recap here:

RECAPS

If you get a password prompt, click on "cancle" and it should bump you to the workbook. If you have any trouble accessing the workbook, let me know and I'll try to fix the link. Or e-mail me at fbpoolgame@comcast.net and I'll just e-mail the recap to you.
