    I have a last cough league at uni but it's getting out of hand, there were originally 5 competitors, now there are 37, how can I set up a sort of knock out format? Or is it fine the way it is?

    That is the most annoying thing ever.
    You go to lectures to learn. Not really to play crappy little games like that.
    Sorry if that's harsh. But that's how I see it.
    Merely an opinion though. =]

    It's funny if you do it once say. If it becomes routine then I would get pissed off :rant:

    Utterly disrepsectful.
    There are people like me who recently had very serious and genuine coughs and you sit there making a mockery of those unfortunates like myself.
    You should be ashamed of yourself young sir.

    How do you play last cough? Everyone starts coughing at the end of the lecture and the last one to pass out wins?

    Eliminating 17 people straight off seems drastic, what if a skilled player is having an off day? Maybe if I get 3 more people in, there would be a top 40, i could spilt us into groups of 5 and the top 2 from each group progress, then 4 wild cards are brought back then 4 groups of 5 are made with the top 3 in each group making it through, these battle it out with one being eliminated at the end of each week

    well when I play 'last ... (cough, clap etc)' If you don't want someone to join... just give them a look of 'pure disappointment' then after a while they stop.... usually I say the more the merrier but 37 is a bit to much though

    If you put as much effort into taking notes and doing assignments and LISTENING in the lectures as you do in planning out knockout stages or whatever crap you're planning, I GUARANTEE you that's more beneficial..
