And we have ourselves a game. For those of you new here, welcome! If you've played before, I hope you find the new additions welcoming.
How To Play
Here are the official rules as follows:
- Each player draws 3 numbers for each Royal Rumble match.
- You earn points by the performance from the superstars who enter at your number.
- Player with the most cumulative points will win the entire game!
You'll find your numbers already posted in here. Please let me know if the link doesn't work, as this sheet is the vital part of the game.
In the scoresheet, you'll notice different columns where points are tallied. Here's how you'll earn said points as follows:
Yes, you can actually earn points in the Superstar section. If the superstar who enters at your number is not on the active main roster, it counts for something:
Order of Elimination
NXT Superstar - 15 points
Back from Injury - 30 points
Returning Legend (retired or otherwise) - 45 points
Wild Card - 60 points
The sequence of eliminations throughout the Rumble. The last few to be eliminated will be rewarded (including the actual winner).
Eliminated by someone not currently participating in the Rumble match - -10 points
Final 4 - 20 points
Runner Up - 30 points + F4
Winner - 50 points + F2 + F4
Record Tied: 25 points
*Batista, John Cena, Randy Orton, and Triple H are the only superstars eligible to tie Stone Cold Steve Austin's legendary record of winning 3 Royal Rumble matches. No record breaking here, unless Stone Cold Steve Austin somehow enters the Rumble. If he even wins at that, you've pretty much won the game already.
When your superstar eliminates another superstar.
1 elimination - 10 points (points are divided in the case of superstars being assisted in the elimination of another superstar)
Single Record - 50 points
Cumulative Record - 20 points
At 43 eliminations, Kane holds the all-time cumulative record for total eliminations in Royal Rumble matches. Roman Reigns holds the record for total eliminations in a single Royal Rumble match, at 12. If Kane enters the Royal Rumble, points are rewarded if he sets the new record. If these records are tied, only half of the points are rewarded.
Special events performed in the royal rumble match.
Finisher - 10 points
Tag Team Finisher - 20 points
A Kofi Life Saving Spot - 20 points
The length of time in which your superstar remains in the Rumble match. These do not add up, so earning points for 20 minutes will not earn you the ones already earned from earning 15 minutes.
Less than a minute - -10 points
5 minutes - 5 points
10 minutes - 10 points
15 minutes - 15 points
20 minutes - 25 points
30 minutes - 50 points
45 minutes - 75 points
60+ minutes - 100 points
Single Record - 50 points
Cumulative Record - 25 points
Last year, Chris Jericho broke the record for longest cumulative time spent in Royal Rumble matches at 4:58:12. Rey Mysterio holds the record for longest time spent in a single Rumble at 1:02:12.
