    I’m sure many of us are taking a break from fantasy football over the summer, but for those who are looking into the official euros fantasy game, I have setup a boards league.

    League code: 14MHTKUI01

    Now to figure out the rules/potential strategies!

    Thanks thunderdog.

    Was looking at the rules of the UEFA one last night. During a 'matchday' (a round of fixtures over 3-5 days) if a player doesnt score many points you can sub in one of your bench in the hope that they do. You can also sub in a new captain in a round of fixtures. So you can pick a captain in game 1, see how he does and if youre happy with his points hold on to them, if not choose another captain for the following nights game and the night after if he doesnt perform and so on.

    The 'Limitless' chip is interesting, is like a free hit except you can spend as much as you like on transfers over the £100m budget. Theres a wildcard chip there too which I presume is best used after the group stages have finished and half the teams are knocked out. Other than that there are 2 free transfers in every round.

    Im not sure if I'll play it yet, probably will but not in a hurry to sign up yet. For those playing it seems very active gameplay, with games coming thick and fast and the ability to sub in non-performing players and captains you'll have to have your head in it making new decisions every day for all of the group stages which lasts 12 days.

    I like the format, it's the same/similar to last one with the subbing players in and out rule. It just adds a bit of extra fun to watching the games. I will sign up to that boards league next week.

    I always like that structure I'll be in. I really hope they try ufpl again one day.

    Think i'm set to go with this:

    How are our teams looking?

    Currently sitting on
    Krul
    Pavard P.Torres Mendes Kjear
    Hazard Erikisen Klassen
    Mbappe Lukaku Arnautovic

    Hradecky Wijndal Yazici Malinovskyi

    Not sure on Krul yet as he might not be starting and I think Arnautovic might get dropped too but its hard to find starters at his price of 7m, only really Benteke and DCL are available but they're likely on the bench.

    Kane has the highest forwards ownership with 43% so far. Im wondering are people overlooking Benzema on only 10%, even though its the 'group of death' I fancy France to beat both Germany and Hungary with ease.

    I'd say I will probably run a 10 person league, 25 each, 200 for 1st, 50 for 2nd.


    I haven't even done my team yet, but would people have an interest in that if I did?

    Ok, I think that would be 7, so that’s a start to work with.

    I’ll sign up to the game and create a league and we can sort out PayPal or Revolut payments over the next 3 days (can’t do bank transfer)

    Moved house recently so only getting a chance to look at the euros now. A fair amount of work involved in planning out the team.

    @CSF, I’ll join in the paid league if there is a spot left

    Anyone also doing fanteam (via bethard)? I put a few teams in-a lot less team management involved in comparison to the UEFA game. Fairly similar to fpl. Pretty impressive prize structure with 230k for the winner.

    I did fanteam for the premier league but didn’t give it enough attention to make any serious gains

    Procrastinated on this and looks like it's full now. If a spot opens up let me know. No worries if not.

    Yea I'm in it for the money. I hate the website though so I'll only keep playing if I'm in the running for a payday. I prefer the format in the UEFA game but the bethard one is easy enough to jump into given the fpl like format.

    My league is full now, so anyone who hasn't been in touch with me yet, no need to do so now.


    Anyone who has paid me, please sign upto the league in time for deadline. 7 of the 10 signed up already.
