19 For '19

Post by Shaggy365 » 23 Oct 2018, 20:16

Greetings one and all,

It's been a while, so I thought I'd come up with another competition (actually the 53rd I've run on here). You've heard of 20-20, well this is 19-19. I've come up with 19 questions for you to guess an answer. All you need to do is email or pm me your 19 answers. Closest to the actual answer gets 120 points, 2nd closest gets 103, 3rd closest gets 89, 77, 66, 56, 47, 39, 32, 26, 21, 17, 14, 12, 11, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 25th 1 point.

The questions :
1 - American Football - Total number of points scored in Superbowl 53 final
2 - Athletics - Total number of medals won by Team GB at IAAF World Championships
3 - Athletics - Vest number of the winner of the Men's London Marathon
4 - Cricket - Highest score by any player in the Ashes series
5 - Cricket - How many 6's will be scored in the final of the ICC World Cup
6 - Cricket - Number of test wickets taken by Jimmy Anderson and Stuart Broad in the Ashes
7 - Football - Sum of all shirt numbers of substitutes used in FA Cup final
8 - Football - Total goals scored by England in all international matches (including friendlies)
9 - Football - Total number of goals scored in League Cup semi-finals & FA Cup semi-finals
10 - Football - Total points scored by the teams at the bottom of all 4 English leagues on 31st December 2019
11 - Formula 1 - Number of races that Hamilton & Vettel both finish on the podium
12 - Formula 1 - Total points scored by new Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc
13 - Golf - Largest score in any round at The Masters
14 - Golf - Total under-par score from winning score in all 4 golf majors
15 - Horse Racing - Number of horses finishing the Grand National
16 - Rugby League - Total number of points conceded by St Helens in Super League season
17 - Rugby Union - Total points scored by Ireland in Six Nations
18 - Snooker - Points scored by loser in final frame of World Snooker championship final
19 - Tennis - Total number of aces served in the Mens singles final at Wimbledon

Good luck every-one.

Oh yes, entry deadline is obvious really, but has been extended until Saturday 5th January, since FISO was off-line yesterday.

An entry has flooded in. Hopefully the first of many, but definitely takes the award for the earliest entry into a competition at just 57 days before the deadline.

PM me close to the deadline, and I'll drinkledly type some numbers.

I'll have to do some "research" re No of matches in SL, how many England matches. The Ashes is here in the summer?

Back in the 70's a bod (from school, as I'm not that old :| )I knew did something similar for the year and ranged from Ski Jumping to I dread to remember :lol:

Thanks for running game, Shaggy365.

On questions below: assume goals in extra time, if played, will count, but not any in penalty shootout?
8 - Football - Total goals scored by England in all international matches (including friendlies)
9 - Football - Total number of goals scored in League Cup semi-finals & FA Cup semi-finals


And if entry numbers need boosting, perhaps deadline could be moved back as there's no relevant event in first week of January?

In any case, shall advertise game to like-minded folk when updating 2018 Predictor contest this Sunday: viewtopic.php?f=32&t=126900

Good luck!

Quite right.

Question 8 (as above) is the one I personally have struggled with the most. Hours of searching t'internet to find out roughly how many games England will play has proved fruitless, so it's been the random number generator on Excel for my guess at this one.

Finally got round to putting a league table on my site. Not very exciting at the moment, but at least you can see if you predicted at least 10 goals for question 9.

The first event has happened, and amazingly enough, no-one guessed the right answer. League table updated.

Another result - Total points scored by Ireland in the 6 Nations, which means an updated league table.

2 results to update (because I forgot the Grand National question), and the names congregating at the top of the leader board start to look familiar.

Another sporting event means another update. Something is telling me I should have put the questions chronologically rather than alphabetically. I just have this feeling it's going to end up on 31st December & there'll be something I've missed.
