Re: NFL Football Pool Game XI

Sooo…it looks like there may only be 3 of us this season. Is there any way I could convince you two to join the TVCH board, where I originated this game? IMHO, it is a lot more fun to have more people to play against.

At TVCH, there is also the option of playing on a 3-person team. You make your picks just like always. In addition to getting an individual score/rank for the week (and Season Average), you get a Team score/rank for the same. It just adds another fun dimension to the game. It is not required to join a team. Like I said, it’s just another fun option for the game. I wouldn’t be able to be on a team with you two though, since I’m already on a team at TVCH.

If you decide to go to TVCH, we could still continue the game here if you like, while you try out the waters at TVCH. Then, just in case you end up not liking it there, we can continue here as usual.

I’d need us to decide as a group what we want to do by next week. I’ve told the TVCH folk that I am considering merging the 3 board’s games, due to lack of players here and on WOP. I told them our scores from this week would carry over, and if you join/form a team, I’d make the individual scores you get this week to be retroactive for a team score for the season as well. Usually I don’t allow a team score to be retroactive. But this is a bit of a different circumstance than usual. So I hope everyone there will also agree to it.

I will attest to the gang at TVCH. They are all a great group of people. Can’t really explain in detail how great they are. But just rest assured you wouldn’t be walking into a gang of axe murderers or anything like that. LOL.

Let me know here what you think. And if you are willing to join TVCH, then I will provide a link, and instructions on how to join.

OK, still waiting for what you think of merging with TVCH. FYI, I've heard back from everyone at WOP except 1, and it looks like they'll be moving over. Hopefully you will too?

In the meantime, here is a link to the main forums page, with a small link at the top to "join."

http://www.tvclubhouse.com/cgi-bin/foru ... ?pg=topics


You won't be able to access the rest of the forum until you are a member. THen you should be able to access the main page of the Game there, here's a direct link to it:

http://www.tvclubhouse.com/forum/read.p ... 1442343048

You might also all be interested in a "Pick 3 Game another board member runs. It's one of those where you pick a QB, RB, WR each week, and you can only use them once in a season. Here's his game:

http://www.tvclubhouse.com/forum/read.p ... 1442162288


Please let me know what username you sign up with at TVCH (if it's different from here), so I can be on the lookout for you. I can also alert the Mods to be on the lookout and expedite your membership approval.

I just ran out of time, I have to go get ready for work. So I will try and post results and the Game Open Announcement tonight when I get home. That will depend on if our houseguest is in "bed" or not when I get home. She's sleeping in the living room, which is where my computer is. If she's in bed, then I'll have to wait till the morning to post everything. Sorry!
