World Cup Prediction Contest is conducted in two stages, group winners and match-play winner.

<Stage 1>

You have to pick 2 teams that will advance out of group play (does not matter first place or second place)

For each correct pick, you will be awarded (handsomely) <ONE POINT>.

16 points possible for this round.

<Stage 2>

Knock out!! Once the bracket is set, you will be asked to predict each game's winner, all the way to the final. (Round of 16, quarter-finals, semi-finals and final game)

https://goo.gl/images/eaPgUJ

Round of 16 <TWO POINTS> for each correct pick

Quarter Finals <FOUR POINTS> for each

Semi-Finals <EIGHT POINTS> for each

Final <SIXTEEN POINTS> for picking the winner

In other words, 16 possible points will be up for grabs for each round, for a total of 80 points.

*** *** *** *** *** *** *** ****

Sample Prediction:

Group A: Egypt, Saudi
Group B: Iran, Morocco
Group C: France, Australia
Group D: Iceland, Nigeria
Group E: Serbia, Switzerland
Group F: Sweden, Mexico
Group G: Tunesia, England
Group H: Japan, Colombia

<You do not pick knock out winners until bracket is final>

Round 16: Iran, Morocco, Australia, Nigeria, Switzerland, Mexico, Tunesia, England

Quarter-Finals: Morocco, Australia, Mexico, Tunesia

Semi-Finals: Australia, Tunesia

Final: Tunesia

<Group play prediction must be made before Russia-Saudi Arabia game starts>

WannaBe: <Penguincw> Well, it's an 'elimination' game, so I'd agree with the decision, in one NHL playoff game, (not even a real elimination game), but with team down 4-1 with 5 min left, goalie got pulled. I mean, imagine, if you are the road team, game 1 of 7 series; and you are ...

  Jim Bartle: At least tpstar's games are here to be played through, and he's let us know his real name.

Your posts directed toward tpstar are outright senseless and offensive.

I can't wait, I grew up watching the ol' B & W on local Channel 5 KTLA on Saturday afternoon in L.A. with the intro of 3 blind mice.

Just watching the trailer, I was giggling and laughing... (I know, grown man, laughing at eyes being poked at and people getting hit on the head with a hammer... Sad. But I'm gonna go and watch it!!!)

I know my company does 'some' screening on social media sites.

That party last Saturday for St. Pats day, watching NCAA basketball? Pictures are nice/cool, it shows that you are well-rounded and have friends, and social-ble.

Picture of you slobbering drunk, all over your girlfriend/wife, maybe funny, but, not nice. =)
