    A couple more have indicated they intend to play (motorkas, Forklift Horseman, etc.)

    Talked with jksoft, and the plan is to have the game up for preseason review 2 weeks before the first race at the end of March. We will go over the user interface at that time. So far, there has just been one strong and one weak vote to keep the buy-in at 60 instead of 75. More folks will need to come forward with these sentiments to counter the push for the increase.

    Last bit: jk has decided against formally playing in the game due to management control and any perceived conflicts. While I am sure it would be unlikely to have him challenged for propriety here, one can only honor and respect this principle as a means for making ones way through life when bad people show impropriety all over the place. His efforts to support the game will not go unnoticed.

    I just realized there are four new (regular) riders to the grid: Martin, Marini, Bastianini, and Savadori. So...get used to some new numbers: 89, 10, 23, and 32, respectively. Who will be top rookie?

    I never even figured out how to score myself last year and still got second by only a point I believe lol. Just throw your money in and guess every weekend who you think will be the top 15 and in what order.

    Perfect score is 140
    Your pick's maximum points is where you place them.

    E.g. 3rd place is 16 points in MotoGP
    You picked Marc for First, theoretical 25 points, but he finished 3rd, so you get 16.
    Jack Miller you had in 10th place, but finished 1st, you only get 6 points. Since the 10th place position only gets 6 points, that's the max you can get from that rider. Therefore, you will have no rider receiving 25 points, since you chose the wrong winner/position order.

    Hope that explains it.

    yeah, that's the numbers. what's more important are the picks.

    here's how winners are picked:

    1. get some darts
    2. take sticky notes and write rider numbers on them
    3. plaster a wall or object of choice with them
    4. this step is not optional: drink rum (or the like)
    5. once enough confidence is achieved, toss darts at sticky notes. first dart: first place, second: you know the deal
    6. take notes of order or plug into web-interface right away
    7. if it's a rain race, step 5 has to be done with darts thrown over your shoulder backwards.
    8. once you have set your picks, do not ever, under any circumstances go back and change the picks. you will end up messing with the universe and the price for that is ending up outside the top 10

    good luck

    Drink rum. Pick top 15 finishing order. Drink more rum. Wake up, see how you did. Drink rum if you did poorly, drink rum to celebrate if your did great.
