Countdown in Lincoln, or COLIN as it is more commonly known, is the name of an annual Countdown tournament held in or near the city of Lincoln, usually on the last Saturday of January. It is usually attended by around 25 people, a mix of former contestants and Countdown enthusiasts. To determine who plays whom, COLIN follows the Edinburgh Countdown Club's model of having three players to a table, with two playing and the other 'hosting'.

COLIN has been organised every year by former series champion Ben Wilson.

Beginning with COLIN XII in 2016, COLIN has been organised as part of the annual FOCAL Countdown tournament league, in which it is the first event of each season.
