Hello ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls.....

mooney and I have decided to run this bad boy again, since it was quite a success last time! As a reminder the final score was 20-20.

The format:
10 vs 10, 4 rounds, best of 10 frames of carom. You earn your team a full point if you reach 6, a half point if the score is tied 5-5, and 0 points + eternal shame if you lose.
Similar to the Ryder Cup, if you know anything about golf.

This "year" we are looking to keep the teams strictly geographical: Scotland is in fact in the UK; UK citizens in "Australia" are also members of the UK team.

Fixtures, news, scores will be posted on this thread.

Good luck everyone!!

I have messaged some fellow worldly players to see if they are interested. Please note that there are a restricted number of players, so not everyone may be included.
If you are interested in joining the world team, please message whocares8x8.
If you are interested in joining the UK team, please message mooney.

well jay, that's not how it works. Usually the tiebreaker is the total population of the two regions. We won by about 6.5 billion to a few mil. unlucky...

Exactly. I decided to ignore that tiebreaker out of the goodness of my heart. So the score ended tied!
