    The 2018 season has ended. However, the activity of this forum must keep going. I create this thread for fun and also evoke our memories back throughout the 2018 season. Before the game starts, here are the rules that you all have to follow.
    1. You can only create up to 10 badminton fun facts in 2018.
    2. Any of the fun facts will be tailored with the number of your choosing.
    3. A number is linked to only one fun facts of yours.
    The fun facts can involve the players, the matches, the tournaments, and anything else as long as these have anything to do with BWF 2018 season.

    You can ask me if there is something that is not clear in this games. If you have more than 10 fun facts that you come up with, you can turn some of the fun facts into hints for other members to guess. Enjoy and have fun.

    Let's start with mine.

    26 - The number of WT500+ titles that Japan has won this year.
    24 - The number of players who won the SS/WT500+ titles this year for the first time. (I let you guess who are they)
    19 - The number of Minions' longest winning streak starting from vs Li/Liu in SSF 2017 to AE 2018 Final.
    8 - The number of WT500+ titles that Minions has won this year.
    5 - All of 2018 Denmark Open champions are the world number one.
    4 - The number of JPN WD pairs who won the SS/WT500+ titles this year.
    3 - Three of WTF winners (PVS, Li/Liu, Wang/Huang) never won this year's WT titles before.
    2 - Yuta Watanabe and Christinna Pedersen are the only two players who won WT500+ titles this year in two categories.
    1 - PVS is the first India players to won WTF.
    0 - KM has never won back-to-back titles until now.

    Let me guess. KS, KM, AY, FukuHiro, Wang/Huang, Ahmad/Natsir. Who are the remaining two players? I can't remember.

    Sadly, it is the world number one TTY who has no WC medal until now. Next year, she should win any of the WC medal.

    Lol, you even count CM's screaming. :D

    Actually, that's 11 fun facts, althouh one of them is just your personal wish for Wang/Huang.

    50 - the total of minions ages
    Um, I am just 25.

    10 - the number of pairs in top ten
    That's so damn obvious. Everyone knows it.

    6 - the number of medals Zhang Nan won in 2018
    Two WC, Thomas Cup, Asian Games. Are the remaining two come from BAC?

    1 - the height Marcus lost this year (169 cm to 168 cm in his profile)
    Can someone actually become shorter?:eek:

    Total minions age 27+23 = 50

    Number 10 is the extra. So it is just 10 fun facts from me. :p

    Yes 2 from BAC for Zhang Nan

    5 is the number Wang/Huang lost in the final this year and that's the fact. Me praying means they lost. Maybe I should have said me wishing?

    People get shorter with age haha. But plus minus 1 cm is normal, might be because of bad posture or something else.

    Well, I just messed you up, haha. 25 is my real age. So, my (the real me) age is the average of Marcus' age and Kevin's age. It may sound confusing, hahaha.
