Croquet

CAI Irish Championships

Croquet Association of Ireland Logo [Ref; 2]

The origins of Croquet are unclear, it may have been played in the Middle Ages, and possibly even have passed down from ancient times. The first mention of Croquet, however, is in the Field in 1858, which mentions meetings of the Co. Meath Croquet Cracks. the players were mostly young and met at each others houses, and one player, George Annesley Pollock of Oatlands and Newcastle, Co. Meath, laid out the rules under the pseudonym “corncrake” and called them “The Rules of the Oatlands Club” – the first Croquet Rules in the World. [Ref: 1]

It is game played on a lawn with two players or four, and two balls, which each player hits with a mallet, attempting to get it through hoops inserted into the lawn.

Capture the Flag

CTF Time

Capture the Flag is Information Security Competitions, a kind of Sport for Computer Combat.

There are three common types of CTF Competitions: Jeopardy, Attack-Defense, and Mixed.

Jeopardy Competitions have a number of Tasks (questions) such as Web, Forensic, Crypto or Binary. Teams gain points for completed tasks, the harder the task, the more points.

Attack-Defense is another scenario, whereby teams have their own network (or only one host) with vulnerable services. Teams have a time limit for developing services and developing exploits. Then the organisers connect the competitors and the Wargame starts. Points are gained for Defense (protecting own services) and Attack (hacking opponents services).

Mixed employ both Jeopardy and Attack-Defense scenarios.

Capture the Flag games touch on a number of different aspects of information security, such as Cryptography, Stego, Binary Analysis, Reverse Engineering and Mobile Security.

Fantasy Sports

Add your job title

Fantasy Leagues started in Baseball in USA. They were popularised in Britain & Ireland by David Baddiel & David Skinner in their Channel 4 Comedy Programme, Fantasy Football, during the European Championships of 1996, which England hosted.

They all follow a format whereby players pick a squad from real-life players and are awarded points for how those players do in real life matches (i.e. points are awarded for Goals & Assists in Soccer, as well as points deducted for the defensive players letting in goals.)

As well as numerous online Fantasy Leagues run by the Major League sporting organisations and Big English Sports Leagues, Newspapers run their own Fantasy Competitions ranging from Football to Golf.

Below you will find links to the Results of various Fantasy Leagues in Ireland:
