We’re all suffering from Post Eurovision Depression, but thankfully a new Eurovision game has emerged. FantESCy — see what they did there? — is a smartphone game for all Eurovision fans. In the game you compete against your fellow fans by voting for your favourite acts and predicting the winner of a selected edition of Eurovision.
How does the game work?
FantESCy simulates the actual editions of the Eurovision Song Contest. Every month a new edition will be chosen by means of an online vote. In the semi-final, every player rates all entries. The player also predicts which countries will qualify for the Grand Final. Points will be earned by correctly predicting the qualifiers.
In the final, the player must also make a strategic choice by assembling a Green Room of the ten countries they think will make the top 10. The higher these ten countries finish, the more points the player earns.
Rankings are available worldwide, by country and in different groups. There’s a possibility to create groups of your friends and family. Within the groups, the players have the opportunity to compare individual voting behaviour.
But there’s more! Entries from the past pop up in the app daily under various themes. The game can be played all year round, because every month a new Eurovision edition will be chosen.
The first FantESCy edition is dedicated to Eurovision 2020. The deadline to participate in this edition was Tuesday 19 May. Stay tuned for the results!
The results of every edition will be published on YouTube every month during two live shows — one for the semi-finals and one for the final.
FantESCy is available now for Android and iPhone. Please note: FantESCy is an independent project created by a Eurovision fan with no association with Wiwibloggs. We share his initiative in celebration of creativity!
