AusTAR Pick 'em game- Scoring in progress
« on: March 20, 2011, 10:01:53 AM »
Any interest in this at all?

I'm hoping to run a Pick 'em game in the same style as Mswood when TAR: Australia rolls around, so I'll stick this here to hold the place/gauge interest in the potential for this game.

Any thoughts or comments on such a game would be much appreciated.

As  joab says it will depend if we can watch it on youtube, as we do with TAR.
Also if you start the game will you or another Ausie provide us with the promos each week?

I'm testing the means to get the promos at the moment. I will tentatively say that if they appear on the Yahoo7 website I'll be able to re-upload them to a place where everyone can see them. I'm also looking into ways to do this for the episodes themselves, but I am reasonably confident that they will appear on the website for catchups, whether or not they'll be restricted by country is yet to be seen.

I think it depends on 2 things...

IF we can see it. Keeping up with China Rush and TARA has had some problems... being able to see all the promos and all are key. I am glad to help with screencaps, if I have a vid it is no problem.

And WHEN it finally airs....if it runs during our TAR downtime then I think this would be marvelous!! If it runs the same time as TAR, it becomes again, more difficult for me anyway, to keep up...perhaps not so much for others.

But this would be a fab game, and would love to see it here!

It would be interesting to play as long as I had access to promos and press releases which I could analyze, similar to what Peach said.

Sorry but can someone explain what a "pick 'em game" is again and what is involved for someone like me that hasn't followed all the previous threds?

Go take a look at mswood's TAR game, and Joab's and you'll get a good feel.

With special advance screenings for competition winners (Still waiting for my phone call) going on next week, I'm going to bump this topic to remind everyone about the game and stir up some last minute interest.

Me too.
I'll wager that if 7 puts the episodes online, they'll be geo-blocked, so we won't be able to see it until someone (!) youtubes it.

Surprised they haven't tried to syndicate AusTAR outside of Australia.

As much as I adore the idea, the time/airing issues may make this hard. I was hoping we could find a way to watch like we did with China Rush... if anyone has ideas please PM me!!

What specifically is the timing issue Peach? Is it going to run against another show?

I'd say May 18th is a big possible for a start, and again if I can watch promo videos and the full episodes (which I am sure we will) then I am game!

No, but I am guessing that if we FIND a link, it will be aired early AM here, so that many of us may not be able to watch "live".

That shouldn't affect a game as long as we DO get to watch! But we need to see promos of course...
