Game Play

Firstly, a time limit for the duration of the game should be set and agreed upon by all players. This time limit should be strictly adhered to. One player should then be nominated to act as banker (they can also play if they wish to).

Play commences at the foot of Division Four and everyone playing has an equal chance of taking his team through the intermediate divisions and into Division One, winning League Championships and receiving large amounts of money in doing so. Each championship winner and runner-up collects a card with a number of points, ranging from one point in Division Four to twelve points in the European Cup. After the agreed time limit has been reached, the person with the highest number of points is the winner.
