I understand the new rules, but it's hardly fair if you get whacked with a $50m penalty?

There will always be between 5-10 movies a year that move into the next, even when we are in the year itself.

There are also the same amount of last minute schedules that could make bank but really with the draft done, all the biggies would be gone anyway.

I think BK has a good point. Has this replacements thing really been an issue where one took advantage the previous years?

I'd say it's already a loss in itself if for example you'd picked a film you'd thought do well, then it moves out, you most likely end up with a potentially inferior film.

I never played this before, so I can't judge, but it seems good if that rule is being re-considered.

There are a few it is obvious will be moved. Gambit for instance, I'd say is 100% guaranteed to move to next year. Sing, from Illumination Entertainment, also looks like a likely candidate, considering how Universal likes to move around their films. The issue with the penalty is that nearly every movie makes more than 10 million, so there really was no question that you should pick a replacement. I figured it would me more of a gamble to take a bigger penalty. I just felt like it would be more challenging to really take "is this gonna move?" into account when making your picks.

I don't know who made the Box Office Draft 2016 collage, but that looks great.


I made it. Thanks, it was difficult to find images that fit. I ended up cheating near the bottom. there's a white spot and some overlap.


It's cool, mostly because there are some really nice stills in there. For such a collage, it usually isn't about the specifics I think, but about variation and color matching and that's well done.

I've changed the penalty to 35 million and now you can choose a film four month's out as a replacement.

We haven't had sign ups for days. The sheets are ready, do people want to start sooner than Monday? We can start tomorrow at noon.

As we have not had any sign ups for days, I have decided to end the sign ups early. The game threads will be posted by the end of the day. Corpse and Kenspy, our first drafters, be sure to check your private messages!

Were they really randomly generated? I only ask because Group 1 seems like it has all the big, important players, and Group 2 looks pretty shit.
