Fantasy Formula 1 2016 Season

Post by Katzkatz » Wed Mar 09, 2016 5:43 pm

Get ready for the annual Retro Gamer Forum's Fantasy Formula 1 competition. I have entered my Magic Cats' Racing. You're allowed two teams each. Here's the link :-

Hopefully, we'll get enough people in for cups and so on.

Mods - please sticky this. :D

I've been champion in 2013, then 3rd in 2014 and 2015, time to re-claim my title! I'm in with Arc of a Diver and Tall Ships Go :mrgreen:

I've joined, though I picked by teams a bit too quickly, and I can't edit them now :? Oh, well.

I used to do 'Pure Fantasy Formula 1' about 8 years ago (with these same team names), along with a Fantasy Film one, too.

Fantasy Film one? How did that work - and what was it about?

Good that we are getting new people in. The more, the merrier. Plus, it makes getting the cups awarded easier.

It was excellent. I was 9th in the whole world once.

You picked actors and a director, and possibly a film studio, then it went on the takings of the films. For example, if you picked someone from Star Wars, it would cost a lot (like Lewis H in F1), and JJ would be like Mercedes, then you'd have to pick cheaper people to make up your film (like the F1 teams). In the end you had something like a studio, director, and maybe 3 actors. You then saw the takings each week to get points. :-)

I could never get on with that league - always seemed overly complicated.

BUT I am in another league with people at the pub and it looks pretty good - so I set up one for here......
