May the odds be ever in your favour.
Want to prove you’re the basketball guru of the office? Want infallible scientific evidence of what you already know to be true? you’re smarter than everyone else. Want to finally prove to your office chums that motivational posters really can inspire an individual to illustrious accomplishments? That’s where a bracket game comes in.
The NCAA Division I men’s basketball tournament starts with a bracket of 64 teams. Before the games begin, you can try your hand at predicting the winner for each one of the 63 games. Your methodology is entirely up to you, whether that’s taking a deep dive into the statistics, flipping a coin, or paranormal readings of rake designs in your zen garden desk accessory.
As the games progress, you’ll get points for every winner you picked correctly. Those points increase every round (games in the second round are worth twice as much as games in the first round, and so on). At the end of the tournament, the player with the most points wins.
Entry is completely FREE. Please encourage your office mates to join the competition as it will increase the odds of your office winning the surprise bonus prize. You will have to sign up for an ESPN account if you do not already have one. Brackets must be filled out by Thursday, March 21.
The office (company + location) the winner represents will receive a surprise group bonus prize!
