    The 2018 World Cup is upon us and for a bit of fun, it's time for another sweepstake.

    This one should be simple: For the extremely low price of just 10 Diamonds, you can have a slot in the draw.

    Just before the World Cup, there will be a random draw of football teams to participants. Whoever is lucky enough to have the team that wins the World Cup gains the pot.

    If not all the teams are chosen, then it will go down through 2nd, 3rd and 4th place. If no one picks any of the top four teams, all Diamonds will be refunded.

    There are 32 teams, so to begin with anyone can have up to 2 slots. If there are still spare slots by 12th June, I'll open them up to a max of four per participant.

    Game on.

    Oh heck, I completely forgot.

    ok - there are 32 teams and currently 8 slots taken.

    Tirial, Kindler, Terry - 2 slots
    Angel, CIAS - 1 slot.

    So 10 diamonds will get you four teams drawn at random for each slot.

    I'll leave it open for a couple more days to see if anyone else wants to join in, and then I will just ration them out.
    This isn't going quite the way I expected.

    Well no-one else so let me go and draw some teams.

    Given the state of it, I'll hand out teams from the first two pots.

    Terry: Germany, Croatia, Poland, Spain
    Kindler: Brazil, Uruguay, Russia, England
    Tirial: Argentina, Peru, Belgium, Colombia
    Angel: Portugal, Switzerland
    CIAS: France, Mexico

    Let's see how this one plays out.

    That's a nice spread of countries and a possible winner in each group.

    Yeah, I have no problems having the favourites for the WC, of course. :D

    C'mon you England beauties. Cannot believe it, but get in there.

    I'll take Germany and Spain out of that lot, but Poland is already a gonner.

    I see you got both favourites @Kindler

    It's coming home, it's coming home....until the last 16 where we lose on penalties. ::rofl::

    So how's this one going.

    Terry: Germany, Croatia, Poland, Spain
    Kindler: Brazil, Uruguay, Russia, England
    Tirial: Argentina, Peru, Belgium, Colombia
    Angel: Portugal, Switzerland
    CIAS: France, Mexico

    Wow - no-one has Sweden.

    Been some great matches so far, so hoping England goes a little further.

    Don't believe it - I'm still in with a chance :D

    Shame about England. Got so far with such a young team.

    They have so few caps when you look at the other teams, it's not surprising they seemed a little out of their league in the end. Same goes for the manager as well.

    Does mean they are only going to get better though.
