    Hello all,

    I realize being a little late to post (July 31!) that some have posted two similar contests to what we are offering, which is fine, you are welcome to join as many as you'd like. But we have 3 others that are unique to these boards, so if you're interested, scroll down to the form and fill out what interests you and we'll contact you about joining the contests you'd like. There are official rules for each contest, however I can't post them all here, I will summarize with the main rules, and if you need the full rules, just ask.

    NFL POLISH SURVIVOR: $50 per entry, 3 for $125 (3-pack can be split with CFB)
    -Each week, you pick a team to LOSE (or tie) to advance. No point spreads.
    -Can't pick the same team twice
    -4 weeks of eligible buybacks
    -After Week 14, you may be required to make 2 picks based on entries left
    -Winner takes all unless a unanimous split

    COLLEGE FOOTBALL SURVIVOR: $50 per entry, 3 for $125 (3-pack can be split with NFL)
    -Each week, you pick 2 teams from the list of AP Top 25 Games to win. No point spreads.
    -You can pick the unranked team.
    -You can't pick the same team twice throughout the contest.
    -4 weeks of eligible buybacks
    -If no one picks both teams to win, all teams with 1 correct will advance to the next week.
    -Contest only runs until Week 13. Week 14 (Conference Championships) will not be used. After Week 10, you may be required to pick 3 teams based on entries left.
    -Winner take all unless a unanimous split

    REDDIT EAST GATE: $200 per entry
    -This runs similarly to the Westgate LV contest
    -You must only make 5 NFL picks ATS per week
    -Contest will be held on CBS Sports
    -Point spreads will be released Wednesday night along to match the Westgate odds, however we will use half-point spreads so some odds will be different
    -Season prize will be listed once we have a full entry list. There will be a $50 weekly prize to the entry with highest score. If there is a tie, only those entries will continue the battle for that weekly prize into the next week(s)

    FANTASY FOOTBALL ELIMINATOR: $30 per entry
    -This runs similarly to Kidman's contest, except there are no limits on entries and the highest scorer each week until Week 10 is granted immunity for the following week and can't be eliminated
    -Prize based on total entries.
    -You must pick a QB, RB, WR & TE each week to gain fantasy points (points breakdown is on the official rules page). Lowest score(s) for the week are eliminated.
    -If a player with immunity is the lowest scorer, the next lowest scorer is eliminated.
    -FINAL ROUND: Week 16 & 17, with 4 players. Highest total points over both weeks will be the champion.

    EUROPEAN SOCCER SURVIVOR: $20 per entry, 3 for $50
    -This technically counts as football!
    -You must pick 3 teams from the main leagues in 5 countries (England, Spain, Italy, Germany, France) each week. The week will consist of Friday-Monday.
    -3 points for a Win, 1 point for a Tie, 0 points for a loss.
    -You must get 5 points to advance to the next week.
    -You cannot pick the same team twice throughout the contest.
    -4 weeks of eligible buybacks.
    -There will be some weeks where they take a FIFA or Christmas break. These weeks, and Cup competitions (UEFA, FA, Coppa Italia, etc.) will not count towards the contests.
    -Winner takes all unless a unanimous split

    Below is a form to fill out if you're interested in playing.

    NOTE: I'm trying to limit PP/Venmo transactions during the football season to avoid red flags, so I'm trying to push Zelle & Cash App as the primary payment options. If you are using PP or Venmo after August 15, there will be an additional fee added, whereas that fee will not be added to Cash App or Zelle.

    By now, there are several posters who have joined and can vouch for the legitimacy of the Pinnacle contests. We'll have fun and I expect all these prizes to be greater than last year's.

    If someone gets the high score in your fantasy eliminator contest one week are they able to pick Bugs Bunny as their QB, OJ Simpson as their RB, Elroy Jettson as their WR, and Jessica Simpson as their TE the following week since they can't be eliminated? Just curious how you handle that scenario.

    Fantasy Eliminator might be best if you had a running score total and whoever had the most points at the end that wasn't eliminated is the winner.

    Thanks for the feedback, Breeze.

    I mean, given the rules, you certainly could’ve taken advantage of no namers. But given this was addressed beforehand, there’s always time to amend. Currently, the other contests are gaining more steam than this one, so I’m willing to make amendments as needed to make it the best contest. And your ideas are fairly good.

    So basically, a running total on the year for the actual winner. But if you hit a pitfall in a given week, you can be in first by a mile but you’d be eliminated. And now even with immunity, you’ll still want to add as many points to the running total as possible. And that allows this to go the entire contest to Week 17, thus adding an extra elimination in Week 16. That would be the dreaded one!

    i like it. I think I’ll subscribe to these changes and update the rules later. And suddenly, this contest is completely different than Kidman’s, which is good for everyone.

    East Gate has a $2400 prize currently.

    CFB is $1200. Polish is $900. These will all rise.

    The FF Eliminator contest has been canceled. An NFL Wins Draft will replace it.
