Cool Legion Movie Draft (GAME)

Are you a connoisseur of gilt-edged cinema espousing your infatuation for the golden age? or maybe your elite taste wanders more to the truly independent art house picture shows.

Now you can lord over the unwashed plebeian masses with your extensive knowledge of the idiosyncratic directorial style of Michael Bay and his true genius of fulmination!

The idea will be to draft the best available films and then go head to head in a bracket vote to determine who has the best list. The winner will receive their choice of 6min or 100 tech, second place will receive 1 AKP.

LEGION MOVIE DRAFT

Rules:
  • Sign-ups will open if enough interest is shown (please sign up below)
  • A snake draft will be used, which goes from top to bottom, bottom to top, etc.
  • Players will draft four (4) movies representing any genre
  • Participants will have 12 hours to make each selection
  • If a participant misses a draft pick they may make that pick at the end of the draft
  • A second missed pick will result in removel and any selections going back into the pool
  • If you are not able to post you may leave your pick with a proxy member to pick on your behalf
  • It is helpfull to provide links to you pick (youtube/IMDB/piratebay)


Also ask any questions!

Likewise I don't entirely understand the rules. But I am a major league movie buff. So this should be fun. I'm in.

The general principal is that it is a fantasy draft, this version based on what you consider the best movies ever made. Once the draft is complete we vote on who has the best list in head to head brackets (march madness style) to determine a winner.

I will use the following example: Bob, Tina, Jack, and Todd want to play.

A random draft order is determined for 4 rounds as follows:

Round #1
  • Bob
  • Jack
  • Todd
  • Tina
Round #2
  • Tina
  • Todd
  • Jack
  • Bob
Round #3
  • Bob
  • Jack
  • ETC


Then your lists are put into brackets and voted on to advance:

Todd vs Bob
Tina vs Jack


The winner advances:

Todd vs Bob
Tina vs Jack

Todd vs Jack

Todd vs Jack

Todd Wins!



The more people that join the more fun games like this are due to what everyone believes a good, classic, or genre defining movie could be. The first couple games can be slow but after you realize it is just a fantasy draft with bracketed voting it becomes easier.

I'll close this and we can run an 8 man draft (the losers from the first two brackets will have a second chance round).

using a randomizer the draft order shakes out to the following (snake order draft):

Round 1
  1. Thomond
  2. Deadpockets
  3. Marktidewater
  4. Alexander Kerensky
  5. Pyroponce
  6. Sekkendu

Round 2
  1. Sekkendu
  2. Pyroponce
  3. Alexander Kerensky
  4. Marktidewater
  5. Deadpockets
  6. Thomond

Round 3
  1. Thomond
  2. Deadpockets
  3. Marktidewater
  4. Alexander Kerensky
  5. Pyroponce
  6. Sekkendu

Round 4
  1. Sekkendu
  2. Pyroponce
  3. Alexander Kerensky
  4. Marktidewater
  5. Deadpockets
  6. Thomond



I will create a draft thread on Monday and PM everyone, I will allow up to two more people to join before Monday but they will have to make their selects after the draft is over.

Here are a couple answers to questions about the rules:

Can I draft the same movie as another player?

No, once a movie is drafted it can not be drafted by someone else.

Does this include remakes?


For the purpose of this game remakes will count as separate movies;

Example:
  • War of the Worlds (1953)
  • War of the Worlds (2005)

Both of these movies (original and remake) can be drafted by different players.


What movie can I draft, best movie is kind of vague?

In order to get the ball rolling on drafts like these, I wanted the first one to be as wide open as possible. In essence draft what makes you happy or what you believe the "Best", "Classic", or "Cinema Defining Film" is to you. The idea is to end up with a list of the "greatest" movies ever made and find out who has the best list. If we can get more people to join focusing on specific genres becomes more fun (and non-movie drafts like music or world leaders).
