Interested in fantasy football? What’s more, do you love the NFL? Well, why don’t you make things a little more interesting this year? Get yourself involved in a Survivor Pool. Mix in a little bit of skill with pure chance to determine if you can hang around the longest and become the last player standing to catch the trophy, which, hopefully, comes from money form.

The idea behind a Survivor Pool is a fairly simple one; live in the pool the longest in order Fantasy Football Trophies. The way by which you attain this, in most pools, is by correctly picking the winner of a match each week. There’s a variation that’s the complete opposite; choosing a losing team each week.

Survivor Pools is popular with the NFL as there are fewer teams than faculty as well as the groups are followed more widely. But a Survivor Pool can easily be modified to work in union with other events, such as college bowl seasons. In the event of an NFL Survivor Pool, you’re asked to pick 1 team per week that you think will win the match. If this team does win, you move onto next week. If this team loses, so do you and you’re out. This carries on until someone is left in the pool. That man is then declared the winner and will gladly collect their prize.

You essentially have two options to play at a Survivor Pool; you can either set up your own pool, like in your office, and get people to join or, as an alternative, you could decide to join a pool that’s already in existence. If you put up your own pool, you decide the rules. If you combine an existing pool, then you need to follow the principles set out by the person who set up that specific pool. All rules should be clearly defined and documented in advance of their first game. These rules are also referred to as the pool configuration. What settings are generally available for setup of a Survivor Pool?

There are lots of websites that will host your Survivor Pools, though few that will host your pools at no cost. Frequent settings of sites include; the maximum amount of players allowed in the pool, tiebreaker rules should the season end with more than 1 player still active, if Rebirths are permitted and, if so, the number of Rebirths are permitted per team and if there’s a Cutoff week. Rebirths allow a team who’s out to get their way back into the pool. Other preferences found on some websites include allowing autopicks and the number of weeks autopicks are permitted, whether the players will need to select winning teams or losing teams and what the finances are for the league (Entry fee, Rebirth commission ).

Survivor Pools are also called Last Man Standing Pools, Suicide Pools, Eliminator Pools and Knockout Pools. These are not the only fantasy football pools between NFL teams. You can also participate in Point Spread or Select’em Pools, Confidence Pools and Super Bowl Square Pools. Descriptions of these pools are located in various articles.
