    The Game of Thrones SIM League

    The Iron Throne League
    Season One

    Format - Test Sim League

    Governing Body – The Iron Bank
    Scarlett & VC the slogger Enterprises

    Setup
    League of five teams with a final to be played between the two teams who finish in first & second place.
    Each House has a squad size of twelve. A pool of international players will be presented for coaches too choose from, the maximum pick is four international players per House. House Baratheon will have the first choice and run in alphabetical order. The first-round, coaches can choose two international recognised players. The second-round of the pick, coaches can choose their second two international selected cricketers.

    Coaches
    This really depends on interest and how many members sign up. If there is a scenario where there is more than five coaches then co coaches could be granted. There could be options for Season Two which could involve more Houses present. On a personal note, don’t like to see anyone left out.

    I've never got involved with anything like this before, so please bear with me whilst I ask some probably stupid questions

    So I'd basically pick a team and when my turn comes I can choose to swap two of my players with two from the pool? Then I choose 11 of my 12 to play in each round, which you/VC will simulate somehow and tell us what happened? Is there then a chance for more swapping with the pool before the next match? Perhaps most importantly why is Mitchell Starc not in House Stark?

    I'm interested btw, just want to get my facts straight first.

    Yes you would have a squad of 12 and with international picks it would rise too 16. Mitchell Starc could well end up playing for House Stark lol. And all matches would be simulated yes with a result.

    Just pick a team if would like to take part

    In that case may I have House Greyjoy?

    Also, are you allowed to agree with coaches to trade players or anything like that?

    Its more in experimental mode at the moment, so no transfer system is in place but there could be one.

    Don Bradman 17 lol, just went through the academy. The original plan was too have Indian first class cricketers but my knowledge is awful there so apologises, don’t really know who the good cricketers are.

    Howey, harsh did call first with House Baratheon, but there are others you can choose from

    @SillyCowCorner1
    Please could you choose a team would be very much appreciated

    @Thread
    The plan is that you build your own team but the obstacle being you have a team already assigned which makes it more difficult because you would have to work with the cricketers you have, like if a new coach taking over would face.

    The option to sign international cricketers will give members a freedom to choose their own favourites. Also this will give members a chance to fill any weak areas, add more pace, spin and batting power etc.
