As a bit of fun I joined the BBC Sportdaq competition recently, along with my whole family here, and including a nephew, and my father in England. It is a lot of fun. Basically it is intended to work (and to teach people how) as a stock market, but here the companies are sports personalities. It is quite amusing to hear my sons saying that they need to "check their shares!" Especially the older one, who, up until now, has never shown any interest in Sport! But it happens real time, and means that you can directly compete with family and friends over long distances. There is no real money involved (as you 'play' with 'pretend' money), but the competition can still be fierce!
