League Overview:

This is something i've done with my roommates for the last couple of years and I figured i'd see if folks here would be interested in playing. It's basically fantasy football with games where we each take turns picking the games we think will be the best reviewed games of 2018. We've missed out on a few gems already (Monster Hunter: World (91), Celeste (94), and Dragon Ball FighterZ (88)), but there are still plenty of games to choose from. Each person gets 10 picks and those 10 games make up your "team" for the year. The Metacritic scores of your 10 games are tallied up at the end of the year to determine your total. Highest score wins. You also get 2 alternate picks just in case one of your picks gets delayed into 2019. So if you draft something like FF7 REmake and it gets pushed into 2019, one of your alternates takes its place and you don't end up with 0 points for that game.

The Rules:

1. No DLC or Expansions
2. No Ports or Remasters
3. Alternate picks can only replace games delayed into 2019. They cannot be used to replace games in your top 10 that review poorly.

The Prize:

1st Place: A $25 Amazon Gift Card

note - if we have a lot of people interested, i can add 2nd and 3rd place prizes.

The Process:

If there are only 2-5 people interested, we can do an actual draft where we take turns picking games. A "snake draft" would be the fairest way to do this since the draft order reverses at the end of each round. But if there are a bunch of people interested, each person can just list their 10 picks and 2 alternates. I'll add the list to the OP and update it throughout the year.

Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions.

Six people so far. More than i expected. Let's keep signups open through the weekend and then we can figure out if we want to do an actual draft or just have everyone list their 10 games + alternates.

I think with as many as we will have we may have to let everyone pick their ten/alternates and come up with a tie breaker question or two? Draft cooould work..but depending on how many we get the best things will be gone fast. May as well see how many we get first though. Seems like it would be fun with lots of people so maybe we will get more

Snake draft is like it goes down the table then comes back up right? Like if you pick last first round you pick first in second?

Like 12345677654321?

That is how our youth baseball league does it..being 1 can actually be a bad thing as you get the single best but it gets picked over hard before you get another pick.

Yeah, that's how a snake draft works. I think it would have worked really well if we only had about 4 people. But with 6 so far, i think you're right about everyone picking their 10 + alternates being the best option. And if multiple people make the same picks, we can think up a tiebreaker.

@tonymack21 @BloodPuppetX @thatfootballguy @JD @PlayYing

Doesn't look like anyone else is interested in joining us so let's just get this show on the road!

https://www.surveymo...

I've set up a questionnaire so we can enter our top 10, alternates, and answer a tiebreaker question. Once everyone has submitted their picks, I'll post them here. If you don't care about keeping your picks a secret until everyone has submitted theirs, feel free to just post them here. Good luck everyone!

Just a $25 Amazon GC to the winner this year. Maybe we can do a buy in next year if people are interested. You can still join if you'd like, Ryan. I'll add your name to the list.
