Re: F1 game

Time for the annual Anything Goes Formula 1 Game again!


Real short instructions (for those who just want to be done with this):

Choose three drivers from different teams from the list below.
(just post here or at Sports/F1 Game 2017 topic)


A little longer version (recommended even to those not really interested):

You may (and should!) also choose separately one or more drivers for the other (part of the) Game (if you want to know what that means, you'll need to read the long explanation below the list).
If you do, I would prefer you choose two (or more) to avoid players ending with same choice - but there's no rule against having same driver all season in Active Game. Also note that these choices are allowed to include both drivers of a team.

If you make no additional choices, the three drivers apply to both Passive and Active Game.

Full rules explanation:

There are actually two games (which are in fact added together for the absolute annual championship of AG F1 Game).

The Passive Game is simple: you just choose three drivers before season starts - I added the rule "of different teams" to avoid players making exactly same choices too likely - and those alternate as your driver, one for each race. You get the amount of points that driver get (in official final F1 results; this means for example that if half points are awarded from a stopped race, those are also our Game points). If the chosen driver isn't racing, your next choice will be applied; this even in event of driver leaving F1 entirely mid-season. If a chosen driver switches team, he still remains as your choice.

The Active Game - traditionally known as "Free (Choice) Driver" game - has the idea that players choose a driver before each GP. Since there hasn't been many players to follow through whole seasons on this, I first added the rule that whenever you haven't made a new choice you keep the previous choice. Later I've extended this to possibility to choose one or several drivers (to alternate similarly to Passive Game) straight at the start of season. Like in Passive Game, scoring simply follows the actual F1 drivers' championship points.

If a player participates Passive Game but not separately Active Game, The Passive Game score counts also for Active Game. Players may also participate Active Game without participating Passive Game.

Besides Active and Passive Game, the annual championship (aka Total Game) is decided by awarding points from final positions on each game at end of season points similarly as F1 scoring for each race (25/18/15/...)

For anything else in this game, I'm the judge, jury and executioner (of scoring and rule interpretations).


Small print

To increase participation, I'm this year adding rule that when possible, choices of players who have participated in previous seasons but have not now (before season start) posted any choices will have their last played season's choices used, if any of those drivers are still available.

Re: F1 game


MO, Petal... are you:

1. once again being uninterested, unwilling and uncooperative (or as I would put that, "playing hard to get")
2. actually paying attention to F1 and waiting till opening keewend before making choices
3. really good at reading rules

For anyone wondering "hey, I didn't play this?", I have added a new rule to the F1 Game that anyone who has played previously (and made choices that are still legitimate) is automatically in Game with former choices if they make no new choice before season start.

This applies to most people on this board...

Interestingly, I did this just in time to have eaglewings play; only driver still racing he ever chose is Massa, who is assumed to retire after this season.

Re: F1 game


AG F1 Game situation at 4/5 season:


Active Game:

Morwen Oronor: 306
Codex89: 275

Kaunisto: 216
Petal Alderin: 185

*=not actually playing Active Game, so Passive Game score counts as that too

Passive Game:

Petal Alderin: 238
EyeOfTheBeholder83: 221
Codex89: 220
Li0nh3eart: 220
rsmcc: 218
Morwen Oronor: 211
Kaunisto: 194
Nick: 185
Justbec: 174
Simelius: 169
DuffDan: 86
Barbara12: 80




Note about the (Active) Game: In previous years I have during last races ruled that players must choose different driver than leading player if that is needed to have mathematical chance to win the game. However this year, due the greatly increased number of participants (which is due the new "eternal participation" rule) and complications/conflicts of interest resulting from having two Games plus their combination deciding actual championship, I will only do this for last 3 races - as I already have failed to do so for some time now...

(This isn't something anyone really needs to be concerned of - unless Li0nh3eart or Codex89 wish to name specific replacement for Hamilton other than their regular choices.)
