    Which TdeF fantasy team games look good?

    My wife and I talked a lot of smack and had a blast last year with the simple little Versus TdeF fantasy game. I haven't seen anything on their site yet this year about a repeat.

    I did see this site listing a few games. This one looks relatively simple but promising.

    I know there are some uber-complex team manager sims out there. That's not our speed.

    Any good games out there?

    Thanks, dagna. I saw the "game on" announcement during the TdeSuisse but didn't catch the URL and it is darn impossible to find on their site.

    May have to diversify with some other games, too: nrtoone, etc.

    There was a site last year that let you set up a BF league, I forget which one it was though
    You could fall off a cliff and die.
    You could get lost and die.
    You could hit a tree and die.
    OR YOU COULD STAY HOME AND FALL OFF THE COUCH AND DIE.

    http://www.velogames.com/tdfscores.php allows you to set up mini leagues, but it doesn't appear to be up and running yet for the TDF.

    So the Versus game seems to be going again in 2010, but still no roster or anything other than "stand by for an email." They're cutting it close!

    This one looks interesting. (same as ^) Scoring has points for all kinds of things, with a lot less emphasis on just stage position than Versus (at least last year). Lots of climber points awarded, need a more well-rounded team to score.

    Also nrtoone as a couple of people mentioned.
