Hi Guys,

Although I am new to this site, I am experienced in database editing etc. My favourite type of editing is for bidding games (also known as Auction games). I see there is one Auction game going (run by Molineux) but not much else. I have recently done one for my school friends (20 people). And would like to set one up here.

The idea is simple. Players are posted up daily and you have to make bids for them by PMing me. You have to make a squad of 24 players and a manager with £500 million (therefore an average of £20 million per person). The highest bidder wins the player and they are added to the team. Once all teams are completed, I will finish the database and play the season(s).

If you would like to join, please post on this forum:
Team Name (Please make it something fairly realistic e.g. London Athletic, but a bit more exciting!):
Home Colours (up to 3):
Away Colours (up to 3):
Stadium Name:
First Formation:
Secondary Formation:

All teams will get the same ratings, Stadiums, finances etc!

Hope to get as many as possible involved but I need a minimum of 9, and will set up as many leagues of 10 as needed! Cup competitions as well. If you do wish to join, I hope you will be committed to the game!
I wanna join.
Team Name: Vitosha United
Nickname: Blues
Home Colours (up to 3): Blue
Away Colours (up to 3): Yellow

Is that ok? I ve never participated in such games so if I made something wrong or missed something feel free to tell me :)
What's the difference from this one?
Well, the other one is already closed... So this one would be a good chance to play another auction game.

An idea woulbe to play for a season or two and then, the winners of each auction game would go and face eachother in a third auction game...
Yeah, as MpDi says, the other is closed. I hope to get more than 10 people in mine as well! I will get in touch with Molineux and see what we can do! I also want to try and kick off bidding asap, so if you know anyone who you think may be interested then let them know!
