Hi guys,

We're inviting you to come try out our latest creation, Finishers MMA Game.

finishersgame.com

Finishers is a new way to play MMA fantasy based on the knockout and submission abilities of fighters. The site is currently in closed beta, by invitation only.

We want you to be the first to try it out. If you're interested, reply to this thread and we'll send you an invite code to enter. UFC Fight Night 63 this Saturday is the first event open for play.

Gregory, Skelliher and I spent the past few months with an abacus, a protractor and crayons crafting a great way to play MMA fantasy online. Some of our mods are already members. It doesn't replace any Tapology features, and feel free to discuss it here on the forums. We really hope you like it.

Please note: our invite codes will go to the Tapology email listed on your account. If your email's a fugazi you won't get the invite and we won't know it. See you inside!

It's fun but so far I have done nothing but suck at this game!

I'm down!

Edit: I was actually thinking about 2 weeks ago that Tap should get into some sort money/credit-based competition, glad to see it is happening!

@poir you've got to look to the power of your Iceman belt when you create your roster.  Then you shall win.

What I like about this game is how it's really straightforward.  There's no "draft" or "salary" concepts that make no sense in MMA.  But despite being straightforward to play, there's still a lot of strategy you can put into your game roster.

A word of advice to the Finishers noobs, assembling your Finishers team should probably be done in a very different manner from making your Tapology picks. 

That's why it's so fresh. 

Look forward to defeating you all!

Hook me up please. This game sounds interesting, to say the least.

Dayum, this game is going to get popular. I like what it's trying to do, definitely.
