    While our Single Pick Game is based on dumb luck, this is a true prediction game. One where those of you who really follow football and know what's going on will have a decided advantage over the rest of us (like me). It comes down to being able to predict how well the teams will do in the World Cup.

    The process is very simple. Just tell us which teams will make it to what stage, and for every team you get right, you get points. The player with the most points wins. The winner will receive one week of colors, VIPship, and title. Prizes for 2nd and 3rd are possible, if we get enough participation.

    To sign up, just post your predictions in this thread in the following format:

    Teams that make the knockout stage:
    Teams that make the quarterfinals:
    Teams that make the semifinals:
    Teams that make the title game:
    Champion:


    Scoring is done using the following format;

    Pick the teams that make it to the knockout stage (1 point per correct team)
    Pick the teams that make the quarterfinals (2 points per correct team)
    Pick the teams that make the semifinals (5 points per correct team)
    Pick the teams that make the title game (10 points per correct team)
    Pick the team that wins (25 points for correct pick)


    BONUS POINTS: Get all teams correct that make the knockout stage and get a five-point bonus.


    Good luck to all!
