Euro 2016 Pontoon

Recommended Posts

Lads...help me out. We're doing this at work, rules are thus:

Here's how you play:

1. Choose four teams you think will score a maximum of 21 goals between them across the tournament

2. Every time one of your teams scores a goal, you get a point. Score more than 21 points, and you’re bust and out of the pontoon.

3. All goals scored from kick-off on 10 June 2016 to the last whistle of the final on 10 July 2016 count, except penalty shootouts.

Considering just picking 4 teams from the same group.

Pretty cool idea. 2 strong teams and 2 weaker teams? I'd have to give it a good think.

As i'm really bored, from 2012:

Group A:

Group Stage = 14

Knockout = 2

Total = 16

Group B:

Group Stage = 16

Knockout = 6

Total = 22

Group C:

Group Stage = 15

Knockout = 8

Total = 23

Group D:

Group Stage = 15

Knockout = 0

Total = 15

So take from that what you want regarding just picking a group :D

or start with 2 teams (like 2 cards) and then after group stages its a stick or twist type of thing so pick another team if you feel your too low etc.

Hmm, there's an extra set of fixtures this time around though to consider, as well.

I like Andy's Idea.

2 Teams for the groups.

Ability to stick or twist at every round subsequently. (maybe stopping at the Semis?)

We're playing it with 2 teams at start and through groups with option to stick or twist each round up to semi (ie 5 cards)
