Order of picking is 54321. Each player picks 2 films, out of the list of 25 backups.


To make it more fair, can we do "12345 54321" or "54321 12345" for the backup films?


My idea of the backup films is not to get some juicy big box office grossers. It's just to get 2 films that are guaranteed to be released so you do not get $0 should one of your proper picks move out of the year. It doesn't need to be fairly picked, in my opinion. I think "5,4,3,2,1) is another way to correct the unfairness of picker 1 getting the biggest film of the year, albeit a small one.


But a few films on the backup list have some very good potential to be box office hits, much better than some films on the main list.

Yes, oversights by me. Apologies. But they will only be activated when a film goes off the schedule. And they are not YUGE. None will make $100m. And even if they do, it's right that the 5th picker gets them, to even up the advantage that player one had from picking the best potential box office grosser of the year.

I am fine with the fifth picker going first, but let's make it two rounds and do the snake draft.

I think the advantage of going first is small because there will be 3 $500m movies and 2-4 potential $400m grossers. Also the advantage is significantly offset by the draft order 12345-54321-54321-12345.

And going by the main list, you can bet there will be close to 10 films not making 2019. That will make the backup films all more important.

Last year there wasn't even a backup list. So it's even fairer that there is one at all. I think picking two at a time also makes it more interesting after 20 rounds of picking one at a time. I would like to get the backup round over quickly, so each player picks two films at a time. We can add more films into the backup list to make each player's pick seem better, if you'd like. But I am against doing a snake draft for the backup picks.

I don't know about the backup list making the game more fair as it currently stands. The list is very "bi-polar". It has 4-6 potential $50m+ (or even $75m+) hits, but also many sub-$20m movies.
