USING THE VICTORY POINT CHART

Look for the country's line, determine rankings (e.g. largest party, second largest, etc.), and look up each party's number. For example, the largest party in Spain wins 6 VPs, the second largest 4, the third 2, and so on.

If two parties are tied at any level, then add the seats in question together and divide in half. For example, if two parties in Spain are tied for the lead, each would receive 5 points. Drop fractions.

If not all parties are present in a country, divide the unallocated seats evenly among the parties that are present. Leftover seats go to the largest party. For example, if there are only three parties in Spain, the remaining 4 points need to be allocated. One point would go to each party present, and the remaining one to the largest party.

Do this for each country. Record the total points won on the Scoresheet. The moderator will do this for the nonplaying parties.

To get points for Norway, at least one party must have more PSFs there than the Eurosceptics.
