Awaiting Clarification A game played on our forum: Margin Mania

    It would be great to get this game added to the system.

    It's like Survivor, where players pick one team per week.

    But with Margin Mania they get a running score:

    * If your team wins, you get positive points equal to the score difference (the margin) added to your running total.
    * If your team loses, the margin is deducted from your running total.

    Highest score at the end of the season wins.

    So there is NO elimination involved like there is with survivor?

    What about players that do not make a pick for that week?

    The mod at the moment uses random.org to randomly pick a valid team, and anyone who doesn't make a pick gets that team.

    There is also a Joker system. You get three jokers, and can use them any week.

    Whatever score that team gets for you - positive or negative - is doubled.

    What I see with this game is that the top 50% of players are in the mix even up until the end. A badly played Joker can drop or increase your score by a large margin.

    This is the 2021 thread:
