What It Is

Challenge you and your friends to a custom rugby world cup pool. Everyone makes picks for each match. View each other's picks and standings after each match.

Accrue points based on the outcome of each match. Don't worry, we do all of the calculations..

 

Object of the Game

The object of the game is to accumulate as many points as you can, for the entire tournament. On our standings page, you can view pool standings for the entire rugby world cup tournament, at any time.

 

How It Works

There are 20 teams in 4 different pools; A, B, C and D. There are 5 teams in each pool. In stage 1, aka the "pool stage", of the rugby world cup, each team plays in a pool plays the other teams in that same pool. There are 48 stage 1 matches on the stage 1 picks sheet. The 48 stage 1 matches are known and scheduled, after the final draw is completed in December of the preceeding year, roughly 6 months before the first match.

For stage 1, each team will play 3 games, in round-robin style. Each team will play each of the other teams in the same group. The top 2 teams from each group, 16 teams in all, will make it to stage 2, the knockout phase of the world cup tournament.

Stage 2, the knockout phase, is bracket style, win or go home. Each round of the cuts the remaining number of teams in half, until the final, which will produce the world cup champion. There are 16 stage 2 games, which includes the 3rd and 4th place match.

Teams for stage 2 games will be enterred into the system, shortly after they are determined.

 

Scoring

We have 4 different scoring options to choose from.
Straight Pick em
» 1 point for each correct pick
 
Ranked Pick em
» For each correct pick, users will receive the number of points equal to the confidence rank that they entered for that game.
» The goal is to score the most points, which may not equate to the most wins
» The "catch" is that ranking numbers can only be used once
  • Put high points on your most confident pick
  • Put low points on your least confident pick

 
Straight Pick 'em - Losses count negative

Other Options

Pool administrators can abdicate their admin prividges, to avoid any chance or thought of impropriety, from other poolies. We ask that the pool administrator send us an email requesting us to remove his admin priviledges after all the settings have been configured and all expected players have joined. This is so no other admin tasks are required.
