A game which is played by fans of sports events such as baseball, football, basketball and soccer. Each player makes advance predictions as regarding the outcome they expect to occur during the event. The player records his predictions in a form that can be checked by a computer. The record of the player's predictions is either transmitted to a remote analysis location or is analyzed within the computer in which the predictions were made. The predictions of each player are analyzed and compared to actual actions occurring during the event, and scores are given to each player based on the accuracy of his predictions. In a preferred embodiment predictions are made on scan cards that are manually collected and then automatically read and scored by computer controlled equipment made by Scantron Corporation. In another preferred embodiment, predictions and actual results are entered into a personal computer that analyzes the predictions for accuracy.
