    Default Football Manager - The Board Game, Game Thread



    This sign-up is to be contested by fifteen players as specified in the next post, who must be prepared to get involved, and they will have the top two leagues of the English league system open to them. Clubs may be bought and sold freely at the estimated value of that club. Clubs may also be bought and sold amongst yourselves for fair prices (agreed between you in PMs). The currency used will be, simply, points - these can be gained based on how the club does, as well as affected by random board game events. Each club has a value in points, which is simply related to the value, and is updated at the beginning of each season. Points gained by positions in competitions are weighted based on reputation, so that a club with a lower reputation gets more points for the same achievement as one with a higher reputation. This makes things more interesting and rewarding for things like small clubs having good cup runs.

    When buying/selling clubs between players you must obey the following rules:

    - You may choose to make offers through PMs (more secure and more likely the selling party will notice and respond) or you may choose to discuss and barter in thread.
    - If you choose to barter using PMs, both of you must copy me in to the messages so as to prevent any dishonesty or discrepancies in the deal.
    - No backhands/bribes (clubs must be sold for a minimum of 75% of their value.
    - If an offer of 150%-200% is rejected by the selling party, one or both of you must make this known to either myself or the entire thread. There will then be a vote involving all players on whether the sale should be forced or not. Of course, there are vested interests other than whether the offer is fair or not - Who is currently in a better position and therefore most dangerous? Who does the voter want to see come out with a result? Has the voter got some kind of an 'incentive' based on a random board game event?
    - If an offer of 200% plus is rejected (again, this must be made public) then a 21-man FIFA board (found here) will make an executive desicion as to whether the sale should be forced.

    I am not intending to reveal all of the possible events now - these shall be unveiled as an when they are earned by the players. Most will be posted in the thread to invoke the jealousy, or, amusement of your peers. However, some (red and green events) will be kept private, and communicated through PM. As can be seen in the image of the game board above,

    Possible squares to land on:
    - Point based events (blue)
    - Club based events (yellow)
    - Vested interest events (red)
    - Sabotage events (green)

    Turn actions are taken after the board game events take place - although you have a choice whether you want to risk the event or not. On average, 70% of the event cards have positive outcomes, meaning that overall it is a risk worth taking. However, some of the negative cards, especially in the most dangerous event types, sabotage and vested interest, could really scupper your chances of winning this board game. You will have a maximum of 2 days to reply to your turn, otherwise it is passed. If this happens three times in a row you'll be evicted from the game.

    Every time GO is passed, you earn 10000 points (£10M). Each turn, a 6 sided die is rolled and that many places are moved. You then have an opportunity to do business (all but player-player offers - these are negotiated in your own time and ANNOUNCED when it is your turn). If you land on a coloured square, then your event will be made known, but you will be unable to act on it until the next turn at the earliest. Turns are passed consecutively as in any conventional board game.

    During your turn, you may:

    - Hire and sack managers at will (at a price of the addition of a year's wages of both managers).
    - Pump money into the clubs' bank balances.
    - Choose which clubs are affected by random board game events relating to a club.
    - Buy and sell AI-owned clubs at will (can buy more than one per turn now; first season is over - but now we are further in to the game, this is unlikely to happen often). (You may not re-buy a club you have previously sold unless at least 1 year (4 turns) has elapsed since that sale)
    - Announce purchases/sales of clubs from/to other players.

    You may not:

    - Ask to do any of the above when it is not your turn.
    - Request any extra information (including screenshots) from those you've been given.
    - Request specific player transfers, or facility improvements unless earned during the board game.

    You may take money out of your clubs balances in order to buy new clubs, or pay off debts. However, this is not advised - if you take money from a club, the fans will dislike you and you will be unable to rebuy that club for three seasons once you have sold them. It also runs the risk of putting that team into administration, whether initially, or in the long run. If this happens, although you will retain control of the club, no points earned via competition wins etc will be awarded to you, until your team is out of administration. You may also take out loans from the CSE Investment Bank. The bank has made a statement regarding this near the top of page 2 of this thread.

    Hiring managers is a simple process. To sack your manager, you have to pay a years' wages in compensation. To hire one, it is free so long as he is unemployed. If employed, you again have to pay a years' wages in compensation. Should the person you are attempting to hire be in a non-managerial role, or without a job, he will take up your managerial position without a fuss. However, if he is in a managerial role, the chances of him making the move to your club is governed by relative club reputations, and a slice of luck. You may only attempt to make one managerial appointment per turn, so if you are rejected by your favoured applicant, you will have to wait until after the next quarterly update to try again. You may attempt to appoint the same manager in as many consecutive turns as you wish.

    The overall aim, as previously stated, is to be the last man standing. That is, when no other player is left with any clubs. Each and every time a player is left with no remaining clubs (through either forced sales or relegation from the Championship) they are eliminated from the game. Each player will get the opportunity to purchase a club at the beginning of the game, with a draft to select this choosing order. Do not think that you can make offers to force the sale of a club straight away - this must wait until either the third season or until all 44 clubs are owned by players. There will be an update every season quarter in game, after every player has had a turn. That is, there will be four rounds of turns each season.

    I produced a random draw to decide who would have first pick of the clubs. This was completely random, I can assure you, using the online dice roller service linked to in the OP. Much of this game will have to be based on trust - I have no reason to cheat so please do not question any result you or others may get - it is completely random.

    Anyway, you each have 25000 points to begin with (equivalent to £25M) to buy your first club. You may buy one club only until your first turn, when you may do anything you like according to the rules in the OP. The draw to decide the order of picking resulted as follows:

    1 - Long Tym Toon - picked
    2 - Stefan Guillermo - picked
    3 - Coach Crane - picked
    4 - Uncle Scrooge - picked
    5 - Sergio Gonzalez - picked
    6 - Symon Krajnik - picked
    7 - Lionel Aguerre - picked
    8 - Abdul Al-Salami - picked
    9 - Phill Ewles - picked
    10 - King Tikki-Man - picked
    11 - Aidan Galashan - picked
    12 - Moon McNamee - picked
    13 - Arthur Bach - picked
    14 - Mike Jablonski - picked
    15 - Kieran Hayden - picked

    Please pick your clubs in order of preference (and of course valued no higher than 25k points). Pick as many clubs as your position in the draft to make it easier and faster to complete this first phase of the game. For example, if you are Phill Ewles and have been drawn 9th, pick 9 clubs, listed in order of preference, and you will be given the most preferred club which has not been selected by one of the previous 8 players. I hope everyone fully understands this.

    Lionel Aguerre's picks:

    1. Middlesbrough
    2. Cardiff
    3. Bristol City
    4. Hull
    5. Millwall
    6. Notts Forest
    7. Leeds


    Just to clarify (as I'm not sure it's made entirely clear above) When our turn is up, I'm assuming you will be "rolling the dice" for us, but does this happen before we get to do any of our "turn actions", or after?

    Also, how long do we get for each turn?

    Club selection is now fine.

    Turn actions are taken after the board game events take place - although you have a choice whether you want to risk the event or not. You will have a maximum of 2 days to reply to your turn, otherwise it is passed. If this happens three times in a row you'll be evicted from the game.

    Look at the positive side: you can watch what everybody else does first and then strategise your turn accordingly

    I'd rather you'd picked the full 13 sides just in case, but seeing as Scunthorpe have one lower-pecking order pick and Doncaster haven't even had that, it's likely you'll end up with one of these anyway.

    Still waiting on Moonshine and bergtaur to make their picks and then we can begin.

    The order of the random draft to select clubs will be the same order in which the game turns will go around. However, in order to decide whereabouts in that chain we begin, the classic board game rule comes into play. All fifteen players will roll their virtual die, and whoever rolls the highest number will begin. In case of a tie, all of those with the highest number will roll again, and so on, until we have a winner. Understand? Right.

    Long Tym Toon to roll first... and it's a 1! Unfortunate for him, but he leads the way at the moment...
    And now Stefan Guillermo... It's a SIX! He's definitely going to be in with a shout of being the first to play.
    Coach Crane follows this up with a 4, not good enough unfortunately.
    And then Uncle Scrooge die is a little tight - only giving him 3.
    Sergio Gonzalez is up next, and rolls a 3 himself.
    3 is the magic number it seems, popping up for Symon Krajnik too. Not sure he'll be thrilled with that, however.
    It's back up to a 4 for Lionel Aguerre, still nobody close to challenging Guillermo.
    Abdul Al-Salami won't be changing that, he only gets a 2.
    Phill Ewles now... Another SIX! He's got a good chance of starting.
    King Tikki-Man with a big, fat 1. Still, if Phill Ewles wins, he will be going second.
    Aidan Galashan gets a 1 as well, not according to the masterplan there.
    A slight improvement for Moon McNamee - only a 2 though.
    A third SIX! Arthur Bach with this one.
    Mike Jablonski picks up a 4, that won't be good enough for him unfortunately.
    And a four as well for Kieran Hayden, concluding the first round.


    Into the second round we go then...

    Stefan Guillermo was our first man to get a six, and this time he gets... a 3. Disappointing.
    And now it's Phill Ewles. He rolls a 5! The first five to come out today, and he's in pole position now.
    Arthur Bach stands in his way, needing a five or six. But it's a 1!


    ---

    Phill Ewles it is who will begin! And he'll do it now, rolling for a third time. It's a 2, so he moves to square 2, which is blank. No option to pick an event card for Phill, but he still has all other turn options open to him. 4000 points in the bank, waiting on Chimpos now then.

    Well it's nice to start if a little daunting, I don't think there;s much I can do with 4k, unless Alex Fergason wants a big pay cut and another challenge before he hangs up his teacups!

    I'll finish my go doing nothing.

    Am I right to think that barry the second a.k.a. King Tikki-Man is next to pick, or have I misunderstood the format?

    Yeah i am next but i think i need to wait for the dice to be rolled, once we've all had a go i reckon it will get quicker and easier to understand

    Yep, you're right. And King Tikki-Man rolls a 3, moving him to square 3 of course, and our first possible event of the game! It's yellow, so that means a club based event, which will directly affect the player's club; in this case Bristol City. Barry, do want to risk taking an event card or pass it and continue with your turn?

    Just to remind you, the negative event probability is between 25% and 40% for the four event types - so you may say it's a risk worth taking.

    If it were me, seeing as there's 4 types of events, I'd write up the events and then map them to a deck of cards

    I suspect things won't really start to get interesting until people have started passing go.

    We've got our first card taker! Just so you're all aware, I'm using that same online dice server (hey, I'm lazy!) which I have mapped to a list of pre-written events. I'm not going to reveal what the value of the die roll is; just the event itself.

    Okay, so, King Tikki-Man - A wealthy fan donates £10M to your club


    Bristol City's bank balance will therefore be increased by this amount. Is there anything else you wish to do on this turn?

    Good start for Tikki-Man there

    In that case, it means Aidan Galashan is up, and he rolls a... 1. Not going to get him very far around the board but it does mean he is eligible for a point based event! AidanofLFC, would you like to risk it?

    Aidan Galashan - You win a Harry Redknapp lookalike competition. You win 15000 points


    Aidan, is there anything else you wish to do on your turn? Especially considering you now have a rather handy 26750 points.

    Very possible, you're now the first owner of two clubs.

    I'm assuming that's it for your turn, so over to Moon McNamee, who rolls a.. 5! Which moves him nicely round to a point based event of his own. Do you wish to risk it?

    Moon McNamee - Advance straight to GO.


    This of course means you pick up the 10000 points that comes with it. Anything to be done on this turn?

    Arthur Bach is next, and he rolls a 4. No special events for him but it does mean that there are no more than one player on any one square as of yet.

    Alright, well in that case, we move on to...

    Mike Jablonski, who rolls a 4. Nothing doing for him event wise, but with a bit in the bank, is there anything you wish to do, spartans5?

    Hey dave you still alive...im itching to get to my turn.

    Also had an idea that prehaps you could roll everyone at once, and then send PMs to ask if they want the card or not.

    May make things faster as everyone would have a pm in their box, and could reply whenever, then you could send the replies back.

    Then again may make it more complicated for you.

    I don't know.....all i know is im itching to get my turn

    I quite like this idea, as it would possibly move things along faster. One hurdle that would need to be overcome, though, would be that of everyone acting simultaneously when the turns aren't simultaneous. How do you get around the idea of person 4th on the go and person 10th on the go trying to buy the same unowned club? obviously the person earlier in the turn would be able to buy it, but would you then have to get person 10 to re-do their turn?

    I know what you mean, this format will take a while. The only problem is that when people start to use their points more on each turn and buy clubs etc, having everyone have their turn simultaneously could get really confusing. It might have to happen though, I agree.

    Haha, yeh i realised after i posted.

    Just i started the post, then got called out at work, so had to go do a job, came back and had to finish the post.


    Anyways i don't know if it would be possible, but i was thinking more like this.

    Dave posts everyones rolls. Asks everyone to PM their decision regarding do they take a card , if they landed on a points/events space

    Dave waits for all the replies and then posts a summary on the forum, such as;

    "Coach Crane landed on a points card but decided not to take a risk, what will his next move be,
    Arthur Bach also landed on a points card but took the risk and unfortunatley misfiled his tax returns and loses 5000 points" Etc
    Then he asks everyone to post their move for that turn, if they are buying other clubs, or pumping money into the club, hiring managers etc.

    Dave waits for all the replies and then posts summary on the forum such as;
    "Coach Cranes turn first and he decided to put all of his remaining points (9750) into the reading bank balance, lets see if that pushes them into a promotion spot.
    Arthur Bach went next and decided to not do anything after recently being fined, prehaps to hide from any media backlash" Etc




    Just my ideas, if they are rubbish then its cool, but either way loving the idea and thread

    I think we'll finish this round as is, and then try the all-at-once method. It can't be any worse, surely?

    Alright then, we move on to Kieran Hayden, who picks up his die and rolls a... 3! A club based event for him, but does he want to take it?

    I wouldn't have said that!

    Through continued youth investment, your youth facilities increase by 4 levels
    So... I'm assuming that you'll be unveiling the 'masterplan' this turn then?

    So after Kieran Hayden's botched publicity stunt, we move to Long Tym Toon, who throws a 5. Will he take the plunge with a point based event?

    The Government introduces a points tax to help reduce the deficit. Pay 10000 points
    The first of our negative point based events, a shame for Long Tym Toon but his business rivals are probably secretly (or not so) delighted. With a negative points balance I'm sure there's not much left for this turn...

    It's Stefan Guillermo next, and he rolls a 3. Would you like to risk the club based event?

    Yes, I might as well risk it...

    Stefan Guillermo rolls the same as Kieran Hayden before him, and gets the following message...

    Through continued youth investment, your youth facilities increase by 4 levels
    Anything to be done this turn, Mr Guillermo?

    Can I invest £5m into the club?

    You sure can.

    Coach Crane, next, and he rolls a 4. No event for him, but almost 10000 points in the bank, there could be something happening. Anything to be done this turn?

    Coach Crane would like to announce the takeover off Preston North End.

    Hoping that two teams will serve him better in being the first promoted championship side.

    This may bring him down to a measley points total but you have to speculate to accumulate.

    Indeed you do!

    It's Uncle Scrooge now, and he follows up that new purchase by rolling himself a 5! Possible point based event, but does he want to take it?

    You are victorious in a tightly contested crossword competition against David Beckham. You win 15000 points
    Is your new found wealth going to be utilised while it is still your turn?

    Was it really that hard to beat Beckham in a crossword competition? :P

    And our next competitor, Sergio Gonzalez, rolls a 2. No event for him, but is there anything he wishes to do with his 7500 points?

    Very good then, Symon Krajnik it is, and he rolls himself a 5! Would he like to take the point based event on offer?

    You win a Harry Redknapp lookalike competition. You win 20000 points
    There's certainly a few of these competitions going around...

    Anything to be done now you have some cash in the bank?

    Alright then, that means it's Lionel Aguerre, and with his throw of the die he earns himself a 3! Club based event for him - but will he take it?

    I feel I would be a fool to not take a chance at this early stage - hit me!

    A board room traitor has disappeared with £5M of the club's money
    I'm sorry to inform you of this. It won't have any immediate effect on your points total, however. Anything you wish to do with your remaining 2000 points?

    Well in that case it means our final player this round is Abdul Al-Salami! He rolls a 4, which doesn't move him to an event square. It does however, allow him the opportunity to spend his remaining points. Does he wish to do so?
