    I saw this game on different forum that I visit for a different sport, & I liked it I thought people would like it here so would share this game (big difference between sharing & nicking ) on here to see if anyone wanted to have ago. Basically, it's a reverse pointless. i'll ask a few questions probally 7 you have give me the answer You believe is most popular with your fellow forum members & amount of people that give that answer determines how many points it's worth.

    For example, I could say name a 2015 F1 engine supplier & the answers might go as follows.
    Ferrari - 5
    Player A
    Player B
    Player C
    Player D
    Player E

    Mercedes - 3
    Player F
    Player G
    Player H

    Renault - 2
    Player I
    Player J

    Aces
    Honda - Player K

    So everyone who said Ferrari would get 6 pts, those that said Mercedes would get 3 pts, Renault would get 2 pts & any answer that only given by 1 member is an Ace & gets 1 pt. Techically there are no wrong answers in this game, only popular & unpopular ones, so if 2 people answered Cosworth to the above question then that answer would be worth two pts, even though Cosworth left in 2012. The points you get for each of the 7 questions will be totalled up and final points will be distributed as follows for the overall leaderboard in true f1 fashion
    1st - 25
    2nd - 18
    3rd - 15
    4th - 12
    5th - 10
    6th - 8
    7th - 6
    8th - 4
    9th - 2
    10th - 1

    If there are any ties for a position, the points will be split (for example if 2 people are tied for first, the points on offer for first and second would be shared 25 + 18 = 43, so it'd be 21.5 points each). Answers preferred to be sent to me via PM just in case that it might influence other people towards an answer to any of the questions.

    Not sure how many rounds people would like but, if its popular I could do 1 to go in the same weeks as the grand prixs & have an overall champ in abu dhabi. Depending on interest probably need 10ish could start it on Saturday

    Ive decided to start I will start this tomorrow because I thinking that once we start it will all make sense & once it starts we might get more participants. We will always have at least 2 f1 questions & will have a week to before I revealed the results

    With just 6 entries so far. i thought id amend the scoring system for now to old 10, 6, 4, 3, 2 & 1. & the 1st leaderboard was closer than the 1971 italian gp, the top 4 were only separated by a single point

    cider_and_toast - 23 pts
    teabagyokel - 23 pts
    F1Brits_90 - 23 pts

    Jos the Boss - 22 pts
    Greenlantern101 - 19 pts
    ATL11 - 8 pts
    ________________________

    Championship standings
    1) cider_and_toast - 7 pts
    = teabagyokel - 7 pts

    I thought the opening round was tight & if That was 1971 Italian gp. Then this must be the 2006 indy 500 because Just when you think it cant get tighter it does another 3 way tie at the top & just 2pts separate the top 5
