Anybody wishing to play Hat-Trick solo with other players around the globe (is that still solo? 🙂 ), please join us in the first Hat-Trick Solo Tournament. No prizes, no honours, just pure, unrestrained footballing fun. You pick a venue and play a match using the solo rules. Then you post a result, the winning country goes to the next round, the loser is eliminated and that’s it. You may drop out at any point and join back in whenever you feel like to. All you need is your copy of Hat-Trick and a little free time on your hands.
And if you are hesitating, have a look at this fantastic excerpt from today’s match by one of the participants:
92 mins: In the dying breaths of the second half, Santa Cruz finds himself on goal with only the keeper to beat. Hit hard and low into the corner (power= 8), Hennessey dives to his right and manages to parry the shot but only as far as Santa Cruz, who crosses to Valdez who lashes out with an absolute belter (power = 8 again!). Hennessey lunges across the goal mouth and again gets a hand to the ball(!!!), punching it away from goal but only as far as Santa Cruz! Masterful defending by Williams forces Santa Cruz to the edge of the area. Santa Cruz plays the ball out to Benitez who takes the ball up the left wing and drives a sublime cross into the danger zone…
