I have invented a football game aimed at children aged about 8-15 years old. I currently have it on my computer as an Excel document, but I would like to sell this idea as a DVD to be played on computers, laptops, tablets etc.
The game enables kids who like football to hold their own Premier League season using an ordinary, standard deck of playing cards. They start with 20 teams (the current crop), but they can change these teams to include their own favourites if they wish. They are supplied with a fixture list, and are ready to go.
Taking the first week's fixtures, they play the 10 games listed, one at a time, using either an actual deck of playing cards or alternatively, an electronically generated deck.
Each individual team is given a standard points figure reflecting how good the team are. Chelsea, as current Premier League champions would be given 20 points. Tottenham Hotspur would be given 19, as they finished the season as runners-up. This continues throughout the league until you get to what is technically the weakest team, Huddersfield Town, who gained admission to the Premier League via the play-off system. They would be given 1 point. These point figures stay with the team for the entire season, and never change.
Added to this total is another points figure, which is the form guide. Throughout a season, teams hit good and bad spells of form. Their players also suffer injuries and suspensions which affect the team's form overall. Consequently, each team is given a points figure which reflects this, which is determined by the turning of two playing cards: the first determines how many "form" points they receive (from 1 to 50), and how long this spell of form lasts for (from 1 to 10 games). When this spell of form ends, two more playing cards are turned which determine a new spell of form, so this points tally changes constantly throughout the season.
Finally, as teams generally do better playing at home rather than away, 16 further points are added to the home team's total.
When these totals are added up for both teams, the points difference is added up. The bigger the gap between the two totals, the more one-sided a game should be, as in real life. However, shocks do still occur, again reflecting real life.
The results are determined by the turning of more playing cards and consultation with a series of charts, which could all be done automatically on a computer.
After all 10 games have been played in Week 1, a league table would show the current standings. You then move on to Week 2 and so forth. After week 38, you have your final league table, and discover who have been crowned champions and who have been relegated.
