This is the place to be. There are loads of knowledgeable managers around,
always ready to answer your questions. But before you answer a question we've
had before, why not check out the F.A.Q.
and if it's not there, do a search on the boards to make sure there isn't a thread already.
Welcome one and all to the Necom Birthday Christmas Fun Thingy. Tonight Matthew, it's a Game 1 Extravaganza.
Game 1 started just around 34 years ago, and ran for a long long time. It never went away, it had I think one complete restart over the years and then for the past few has just existed in the background as a test game. A month or so ago we re-started game 1 and so squads in the game should be pretty similar to those in real life.
There are lots of available teams in game 1 – Some British League Ones : Manchester City, Leicester, Arsenal, Aston Villa, Newcastle, West Ham, Leeds, West Brom, Wolves, Southampton, Rangers, Celtic. Some European League Ones : PSG, AC Milan, Atletico Madrid, Inter, Napoli, Benfica, Real Madrid, Valencia, Monaco, Schalke, Roma
We are going to run an amazing game 1 season over four days at Christmas. I’ll publish a schedule at some point before Christmas Eve, but essentially we’ll have five or six turns in a day for four or five consecutive days in the period just after Christmas! I know some of you will have plans, some of you might not, it all seems very much up in the air, but I’d love for you all to give this a go and have some festive fun.
It’s FREE! Our Christmas present to you. Not just that, the season after that in game 1 will be completely free too. So you’ll get to play the Christmas break turbo season and then a regular, two turns per week season, and you won’t have to pay a penny to do so.
So if you want to take on a team in game 1 (for no money) and be part of Christmas Turbo Necom all you need to do is let me know here. We’ll be using the dice of destiny to choose which team you get. If you’re can't get online tonight (or if you're reading this some time later on) and still want to be part of Christmas Turbo Necom Game 1 then that’s fine – just send me an email and I’ll give you a team. But please don't email about this game until after this evening.
The idea for this evening is this. I’ll list six teams that are available to be managed. The first person to post their name on here gets one of those. The dice will be rolled to decide which team they get. Then a different team will be added to the list and on we go until nobody else wants a team tonight. Hopefully you’ll all get someone decent.
Turns will be sent out tomorrow morning – for your no money you will get the four turns remaining in the current season too. That gives you a chance to figure out your squad and even do some deals before the Turbo Season kicks in.
I will open this thread up at 7pm and whoever posts their name up first will be the first to be added to the game.
Here are the first six teams to be picked. If you want one of these in the turbo game put your name down - first one to post gets one.
There will be no exchanges - you must compete with the team you are given. If you feel that you wouldn't be able to manage one of them, maybe one is a club you dislike massively, then just don't put your name forward until that team has been taken. Easy.
Here are the first six then:
1. Leicester City 2. West Ham 3. Paris St. Germain 4. AC Milan 5. Atletico Madrid 6. Real Madrid
Mr.Necom: Bonus point for the Trevor to Kidrock. Which makes him the winner. Rich and Jinky second, Bob and Steve next. Thank you all for taking part and adding some more recent text to this shouty box bit. Will have to do something similar again at some point.

Mr.Necom: Hopefully. I'll go through the top 5's in the morning, and see what I can sort out.

Palyo: Is there turn tomorrow or next week ? My turn says the 7th?

russellpalace: will game 19 get their turn returned today?
Apr 1, 2020 12:11:24 GMT
Mr.Necom: Yes, today. Now in fact. Emails started going out a couple of minutes ago. Turns a bit delayed as I didn't start them until 1 to give everyone a chance on the first one, and then the player reset takes over an hour to run through. With you now I hope.
