Brand New Game Show Coming to Snooker Island

Postby Pink Ball

NEW GAME SHOW COMING TO SNOOKER ISLAND AND SNOOKERY DOOKERY!

'Think Pink' is a new predictions game show coming to Snooker Island and Snookery Dookery this May.

It will reward posters with a deep knowledge of the entire tour and not just the tour's top players.

The top 96-ranked players after this year's World Championship final will be split into 16 groups of six. Group One will contain the world's top 6 players, Group Two will contain players ranked 7-12, Group Three will contain players ranked 13-18, Group Four will contain players ranked 19-24, and so on until Group Sixteen, which will contain players ranked 91 to 96.

Contestants will pick one player from each group and one wildcard – anyone not ranked in the top 96 – meaning they will have a team of 17 players in all.

You score points in each ranking tournament (except the shootout) if a member or members of your team make it to the quarter final or further. Triple points will apply to the World Championship.

HOWEVER

You score more points if players from one of the lower-ranked groups advances to the quarter final or further.

For instance, if your Group One player makes it to the quarter-finals of a ranking event, they pick up one point; two points for making the semi-final; three points for losing the final; and four points for winning the tournament.

If your Group Two player makes it to the quarter-finals of a ranking event, they pick up two points; four points for making the semi-final; six points for losing the final; and eight points for winning the tournament.

If your Group Three player makes it to the quarter-finals of a ranking event, they pick up three points; six points for making the semi-final; nine points for losing the final; and 12 points for winning the tournament.

It goes on like this until Group Sixteen. If your Group Sixteen player makes it to the quarter-finals of a ranking event, they pick up 16 points; 32 points for making the semi-final; 48 points for losing the final; and 64 points for winning the tournament.

If your wildcard makes makes it to the quarter-finals of a ranking event, they pick up 25 points; 50 points for making the semi-final; 75 points for losing the final; and 100 points for winning the tournament.

This game show does not include invitationals but does include all ranking events other than the shootout.

Whoever has the most points by the end of the 2020 World Championship is the champion.

All you have to do to enter is post that you'd like to enter on this thread before the opening day of the 2019/20 snooker season.

The template will be posted on May 7, 2019.

Don't pick him then.

Looks a bucking excellent format.

I want in.

Let me know if I can help in any way - I am rubbish hot with spreadsheets. In fact many people consider me the GOAT at Excel.

I think I should be okay, BadSnookerPlayer, but I'll let you know if I need any help.

I'll add you to the list of contestants.

Yes. It's called 'Leap before you Look' and is designed to suit O'Sullivan fans. Only O'Sullivan fans can play. They must select one player, and it must be Ronnie O'Sullivan. 10 points for every time O'Sullivan enters a tournament. Everyone finishes level at the end and everyone is happy.

One question, Pink Ball. Do we get to say a name for a group in one tournament, and then another name in another tournament, or is it just the one player for each group during the whole season? Anyway, I'm signing in this tournament!

I'd like to see some bonus points for amount of times he tourists off a tournament or venue, but it's your competition. :shrug:

Count me in. :dance2:

I’ve decided the shoot out can’t be included because it’s by far the most likely to have shock quarter-finalists and would end up having the biggest say in the destination of this title. Which is just not right.

Every other ranking event will be included.
