Wordpress Tournament site - Where to start?

Hi Guys,

I am currently working on my second website project, the wordpress blog will be focused on games (releases, latest info, reviews etc.).

I know how to set all of that up, however i would also like to set up a tournament section on the site. The tournament will basically be people purchasing credits. These credits can then be used to enter a specific tournament for a specific game. Obviously, the winner will win a reward of money or credits…

I have no idea where to go about starting this project, i dont know if this is the right place to ask but any help would be great!

P.S. I am not a very good coder, i know basic HTML.

Thanks,
-Michael

Can you be more specific on what you mean by tournament? Is the tournament something that will happen on your site or will it happen offsite? I get that you want people to be able to buy credits but how will they use those credits? I think you need to provide some more details of what you are trying to do and then maybe I or someone else can help.
