    Basically all you need to do is guess the 6 Scottish Premiership results on a weekly basis.

    There will be a league table updated weekly to keep it interesting.

    Points will be awarded for correct scores and correct match result.

    3 points for a correct score.
    1 point for correct match result.
    5 points for both combined.

    - Example of correct score:
    I choose Hibs 1-2 Hearts. Hibs win 2-1 instead. I have predicted the correct score but not the correct result, which will net me 3 points.

    - Example of correct match result:
    I choose Hibs 1-2 Hearts. Hearts win 1-0. I have predicted the correct result but not the correct score, which will net me 1 point.

    - If you can combine both then you’ll gain 5 points for correct score and result.

    I don't understand, why you're rewarding getting the result wrong but earn more points than getting it right?

    Because guessing a score right is a lot harder than guessing a result right.

    Looks like most the regulars who played last time around aren’t as active any more though so doesn’t look like it’ll be going ahead.

    Thanks for the input.

    I get that. But surely the basis must be getting the result W L D correct and if that is, then getting the score right is the bonus, let alone getting the result completely wrong and getting more points than those who got it right.

    Anyhow, guess as it's not happening now it's a moot point.

    Guessing the correct score in a football game is a lot harder to achieve than guessing the result of a football game.

    Correct result = 1
    Correct score = 3
    Correct result and score = 5

    We played the exact same rules 2/3 years in a row and it got on just fine.
