    Stick Cricket League

    I'm not quite sure how to do this, but I think it could be quite fun to create a Cricketweb stick cricket league. If someone could either explain to me how to create a league or else do it themselves, that would be great.

    I'm in. Never used the website but I've long had the iphone app. Looking around the site now to see how to make a league.
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    Doesn't seem like it can be done - you can only compare friends' scores over Facebook. So either:

    1. I make a Fb account called "CW Stick Sports" and everyone friends it, or
    2. We just post scores here and rely on everyone to be honest

    I don't mind either but we'll see how much interest we get first.

    That sounds awesome James although I don't quite know how "creating a game" would work - you would do that right?

    Also, I think a good idea could be taking a screenshot for proof - I know people could photoshop but if they really are photoshopping their score for a stick cricket competition, then shame.

    How I would suggest you do it, is put together a schedule of people interested and then use the Multiplayer area.

    My first game was an utter failur - 90 after 5 turned into 117 all out
    :o

    My best score is 169 after about 5 games overall. Am hoping to take that well over 200 though. I struggle with the spinners big-time!

    176/4 my new best: Would have been bigger if I didn't slow down against the spinners

    Oh, OK, gotcha! I thought you were saying we should make a stick cricket league in the games section

    Ja sure, I'll try it out and then start a thread for it

    Just saw that you (and, I would assume, Cricketweb) celebrated 10 years of CW in October. Pretty awesome imo.
    Anyways, I'll start a new thread after managing a paltry 47-odd in my first 5-over game.
