Grand National Day

Post by gessa » Sat Apr 14, 2018 8:54 am

One of if not the biggest races in the world, even people with no interest in the sport have a flutter on the race.
A fun comp just for the day as we have no game today. All welcome to play.

Rules : pick 4 horses for the race.

1st -10 pts
2nd- 7 points
3rd - 5 points
4th- 3 points
5th 1 point.

Cheers Gessa

It's like the Melbourne Cup in Oz. People who wouldn't even think about betting on the horses on any other occasion have a flutter.

Any more players. You don't need to know anything about horse racing, just 4 names that may mean something to you will do.

I've amended second place to 7 points.

In the event of a draw, then the player with the highest priced horse in the first 5 will be declared the winner.
