I thought it would be nice if we had a Geeklist to list all the World Cup contests here of the geek (or elsewhere if people want that). I will try to put a basic "how it works" in each entry. Thanks!

How do I enter?

One country must come from the Favorites group; one entry must come from the Contenders group; and one entry must come from the Dark Horses group. (See below for the countries in each group.) As a tiebreaker, please list the number of goals you believe the champions will score during the entire tournament.

Points will be awarded according to how far each of your three chosen teams progress in the 2018 World Cup. The following points will be awarded:

3 - Group Runner-up
5 - Top of Group
5 - Eliminated in Quarterfinals
8 - Fourth Place
11 - Third Place

How it all will work:

Each entrant picks eight teams— one from each grouping shown— to play for them in the upcoming World Cup.
Teams will then score points according to how well they perform during their potential nine-game run to the final.
Maximum of two entries per person allowed.
The winner receives the Geekgold Pool Total.
If two or more entrants share first place in the final standings, tied on total points, the prize pool will be split evenly.

I know that Mabby is running a little wager on the World Cup, but I figured that if people wanted to get a little more involved then maybe we could play some fantasy football. I've started a league in the McDonald's FIFA World Cup Fantasy game.

I also thought that I'd make it a little interesting, so I will offer a 100gg reward (plus whatever gets tipped to this post) to whomever wins the Chit Chat World Cup! And if that's not enough, I'll spice it up a little more and offer 10gg to anyone who finishes with a higher score than me!

Here is the link for the league. Alternatively, if you already have a team, the league code is: XKBJFBH9. Please sign up using your BGG username and/or use your BGG username somewhere in the name of your team so that I know who to give the gg to. Also, please thumb this post so that I can more easily tie people in the league to people on BGG.

So, what do you say? Who wants to play?
