  • Welcome to T4U!
Look, I know there is already a lot of tennis games, and people may not have much time. BUT this tennis game will have the least work load. When you enter for a tournament you can do WHICHEVER matches you want and how many ever matches you want. It's a "high-risk=high reward" kind of game. Also, it's an ongoing thing, which means that points are added up for each tournament the entire year.

To keep it simple, I'll make it only for masters and Slams.

THE POINT OF THE GAME:

The name is called "Sets". So it makes sense that the point of the game is to predict the number of sets of a match. You can choose WHICEVER MATCH YOU WANT within the round. You can do up to 2 matches per round. If you get the prediction right, you get a certain amount of points.

There are also other things you can predict along with the sets. This includes picking the winner of the match. Also, you are allowed to predict an "Extra" for the match for a large number of points. This can be the # of breaks of serve, # of tiebreaks, score of final set, and time of match. You don't have to do an extra if you do not want to.

Again, this will be an ongoing thing, so you tally up the points for each correct thing predicted.

So who's in?  :)) :))

Let me clarify for you

1. Pick a match in Round 1.
2. Predict the number of sets for that match.
3. Pick a winner for that match.
4. If you WANT to, you may predict the final set score, time of the match, number of service breaks, or number of tiebreakes.

You get a certain amount of points for each correct decision. Number 4 is optional.

You can do this for up to 2 matches for each round of the tournament.

Questions?

I'm not sure if I have time between FITD, Suicide tennis, FTM, etc. But I guess I would try :dunno:

Neither do I have time, so I'm only doing it for Masters and Grand Slams. Plus, it will be an ongoing tournament, so you can do it as much as you want or as little as you want.

I'm thinking maybe getting some of the less gaming posters to play it once the first Masters tournament comes by. Such as JayR, nick the greek, and Viruzzz.

I'll ask Scott to make it in the gaming thread once more people post about it.

 i like the idea. even more importantly, i like the spirit behind it.
 
its people engaging more and doing something to have more fun here.
 
failure consists only in not trying and not trying out new stuff.

you just have to make sure to remind us at the castle captain. :)) :))
 
the game takes only a second to play. the problem is that we tend to forget sometimes. i know i do when i am out doing things.
 
this makes it 3 cool games here that we can have some fun with: fitd, suicide tennis, and now your game.

I'll try it, although I think the rules have to be a little more strict...

Thanks my friend  :) I'll make the rules stricter when Scott checks his messages and creates a section in Tennis Games for it.

I sent several PMs and asked in the Guidelines section to the administrator to make this in the Games section, but he never replied. I think Scott is VERY busy at the moment.  :(

EDIT: He just sent me a PM that he would create it.  :))
