    Hi Tori 
    Thank you for the reply 
    I will have a look 
    Could you tell me more about the Football competition you have going on?

  • Tori_ScopeTori_Scope Posts: 3,999

    Scope community team

    Sure @GingerNinja2020. A list of upcoming games are posted each week, plus one bonus game. You reply to the new post each week with your predictions for what the score line will be, and the number of predictions you got correct will be counted up and added to the table. Hopefully that makes sense? Let me know if you have any questions! I'll also tag @WestHam06 in here, as they help to run the competition :)

    Hi @GingerNinja2020
                                         How are you? Welcome to the community and thank you for joining us, it's great to meet you. @Tori_Scope has done a brilliant explanation of the football competition but please do ask any questions you may have. I'm happy to post on your wall when the fixtures come out and when the table is updated if this helps and the competition is something you feel you would like to join in with. Please do just let me know. Also, you only have to make predictions on the game week's you want too, so there is no pressure if you do miss a week. Hope this makes sense. I read you are a Derby fan, please may I ask, how are you feeling about your season so far, what do you make of Rooney? Thank you

    Thank you @Tori_Scope :)

    Thank you @Tori_Scope :) 
    I join in please 
    This season is the worst season I seen in years can’t remember the last time we started so badly 
    Rooney well where can I start I mean he is good at free kicks but he is slow and always passing round the back instead of going forward 
    Also he probably is earning more money then the other players in our team and we could have probably used that money on young quality players instead 
    But I am a Derby fan till I die so hopefully we go up this season after a terrific start lol

    You've listed a great selection of games there @GingerNinja2020, especially Uncharted and The Last Of Us, those are two of my favourite video game series of all time. 

    I would definitely suggest getting involved with the video games thread that Tori listed above, it'd be great to have your contributions there.

    hi @GingerNinja2020, if you have Facebook you could just log on there and do a search for groups near you? 

    I don't have any suggestions.

    I don't know if they run in-person meetups, especially at the moment, but there is an unofficial Derby County FC forum you could join @gingerninja2020

    I'd definitely recommend searching around for video game groups online, as Ross suggested :)

                                         Brilliant to hear that you want to join in, I will post on your wall when the next set of fixtures are up in the Coffee Lounge, I look forward to seeing you on the competition :) I have to say I agree with what you say about Rooney but hopefully the season will start to improve. Good on you for sticking with your club no matter what, I'm just the same, even when things get bad :) Thank you.
