Hubdub expands news gaming community

Hubdub, which lets users bet fantasy dollars on the outcomes of news stories, is tapping into the news junkies and experts that use the site with the launch of News Pundits.

According to an announcement from the site, the new blog will be a forum for ‘top users’ to provide commentary on news questions and stories featured on Hubdub.

Matching the online with offline, the News Pundits blog will have its own annual awards. Predictions made 12 months ago about what would happen in 2008 will be reviewed and five winners given ‘an engraved quaich’ (yes, I had to look up what this meant and OED tells me it’s a shallow drinking cup).
