The game has become an important part of the lives of many
sports fans as they predict sports results to win bragging rights over their
friends and colleagues.
SuperBru began life in 2001 as a sheet of paper stuck on a
fridge in student digs in London, evolving into an private online game in 2003
and then opening to the public in 2006.
Now with over 500 000 players, if SuperBru were a country,
it would be the 172nd largest in the world, just behind Luxembourg and ahead of
SuperBru's founder, Andy Wood, said, "I'm honoured and
humbled that so many people have played our game. Our audience grew by
33% in 2012, and it seems to be growing faster and faster - Luxembourg, we're
coming for you."
