    The Arena's Streak for Colors

    Welcome to The Arena's Newest game: Streak for Colors

    (No actual streaking involved)

    This game is very much based on espn.com's [link=http://streak.espn.go.com/?addata=2008_STREAK_PAGE1]Streak For Cash[/link]

    Playing this game is simple. There are no sign-ups.

    Each week, on Sunday, athletic (and sometimes, other random) events will be posted for the coming week. Simply pick up to one selection per day to enter. The idea is to build as long a streak of correct picks as possible. You don't need to make a pick every day, and not picking will not count against you.

    So, how do you win? And, what can you win?

    Well, there are two ways to win.

    Pick twelve correct in a row, and you win 24 hours of colors. Extend this streak, and win even more! Every time this streak goes an extra three consecutive correct picks, you add another 24 hours of colors, up to a maximum of 7 days of colors. The colors will start when you streak ends or you reach the maximum possible prize.

    The second way to win this is to get the greatest number of picks correct in a month, regardless of how many you get in a row. The user who does this will 24 hours of colors as well. Longest single streak will be the tiebreaker.

    Please note that a tie does not end a streak, nor does it extend it.

    And that's it. Just pick one thing right every day, and you win! Get a long streak, and you get colors.

    So, if you're ready, let's streak for colors!

    Correct. One match up per day.
    Correct, you play against yourself. And, you can always donate your colors to a sock.

    24-23, 49ers right now. And not only did I pick Arizona here, but I chose "48 points or more" in this game on the ESPN one.

    Sidenote, Warner is still a beast.

    And hopefully he gets the ball back.
