Post The KJ League: Week 1 - Results! A Symbiote is Born
So this is meant to be an offshoot of the Magnus Summer Box Office Game that will presumably never return. But I am stripping it down to the bare-bones to make it as sports-like as possible. No draft, no bets and your total points only matter in the event of needed tie-breakers. There will be head-to-head competition every week, with each competitor making 3-5 predictions for the upcoming weekend, based on a randomized schedule and only the wins and losses really matter. There will be a 16 game season from October to January (including 1 bye week on the to-be-determined Most Boring Weekend), with a 4 team playoff taking place on The Lego Movie 2's opening weekend, and the KJ Bowl Championship Game the week after for X-Men: Dark Phoenix.

As for the predictions themselves, the most obvious one is the exact gross of the major openers' weekend. But on select weekends I might have you predict the PTA of a high-profile limited release. And we will fill out the rest with holdovers, which you can predict in either number or percentage they will drop if you don't wanna bust out the calculator app. PM or post in here, whatever works for you, but I will list all predictions in here at the start of the weekend so people can track how they are doing. Everything will need to be predicted with 2 decimal points (ex: $75.61M, 25.49k PTA or -43.33%) to avoid ties. If two people opposing each other predict just "$27M" for an opener, I will break the tie myself and one person will definitely not like the results. :funny:

I'd like to start with at least 8 teams so everybody can play each other at least once. Will work with whatever we get though. And if there are an odd number of teams I will join the League myself, though I'd prefer to just be the commisioner while we figure out all the gritty details in season 1. Then, if things work out, I can make an expansion team next season. You can have your name be Team Username or choose a new nickname (ex: The C-Town Flava or The Flava of Cleveland).

Predictions will be due Thursday at Noon every week, even if there is an early opener. I figure as long as everyone has access to the Wednesday numbers then it doesn't really matter. If you miss a deadline, you get a loss. If you miss two weeks in a row, you are out of the League until next season. If you have a trip or some other reason that calls you away for a significant portion of time, you can send your predictions for those weeks as far in advance as you like. And even if they are not the exact 5 predictions I pick, I will work with you. I don't want anyone to feel The League is impeding on their lives.

I think I covered just about everything. The planned start date is October 4th, when Venom and A Star Is Born are released. Let me know if you have any more questions. The winner will get … something. An Amazon/itunes gift card if nothing else, maybe a cheap ring or championship belt too.

He did not do a great job of explaining it. He more or less relied on us remembering what the hell Magnus's Summer Box Office Game was.

Post Re: The KJ League: Season 1
Well there’s not much to explain. But yeah I guess if you aren’t familar with the Magnus game or American football then a lot of the references will be lost.

Let’s say Week 1 is Team stuffp v Team Algren. I’ll have you both predict five different movies for the upcoming weekend

Team Stuffp-

Venom - $60.42M - win
A Star is Born - $90.52m - lose
Smallfoot - -65.61% - lose
Night School - -50.76% - win
The Hate U Give - $65.73k PTA - win

Team Algren-

Venom - $25.68m - lose
A Star Is Born - $30.19m - win
Smallfoot - -35.22% - win
Night School - -70.89% - lose
The Hate U Give - $10.22k PTA - lose

For comedic purposes, I am using pre-assumed biases. I will give a point to whoever is closest. In this case, stuffp would be able to survive his ridiculous Star Is Born prediction (and hatred of yetis)because of algren’s equally ridiculous predictions for superhero and black films. Stuffp would get 3 points to algren’s 2. Stuffp gets the win and would go on to face nghtvsn the next week while algren would play zwackerm or whoever else wants to join. Which would look something like this

First Man - $25.32m
Bad Times At The El Royale - $11.26m
Goosebumps 2 - $13.61m
Venom - -61.62%
Beautiful Boy - $70.51k PTA

Thanks for explaining Flava'd, awesome! And I'm already looking forward to my biases beating other players' biases.

How long will be play this? Is it based on number of players participating? Because at this point I can only think of 5 posters who will play this.

Post Re: The KJ League: Season 1
So the League kicks off in a week. We have 6 teams, and while I’d like 2 more, it will work just fine with 6 if my last minute recruiting does not work.

The first week will be the 5 films used in my example post.

It will be a bit over 4 months as I’d like to have the KJ Bowl Championship on the weekend X-Men opens.

Also, X-Men moving kind of messed up my KJ Bowl. But, for now, we will keep on trucking ahead as planned.

The game starts once we get some weekend estimates tomorrow. Hope everyone is excited or at least still interested!

Post Re: The KJ League: Week 1 - Kickoff! A Symbiote is Born
Sent out the first PMs and we are under way! Thank you everyone who joined. I don't think I did a very good job of promoting it, but still hit the 8 team league I wanted. So I know you all must really like box office games.

This week it will be

Venom 3 day weekend
A Star Is Born 3 day weekend
Night School's drop
Smallfoot's drop
The Hate U Give's PTA

And THUG is apparently opening between 30-40 theaters so keep that in mind. The highest PTA above 20 theaters is ... Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Not at all helpful and it's actually pretty rare for a big opener to do this.

I extened the deadline, but still did not recieve predictions from zwackerm and jack sparrow. So they lose. I now realize that I should have added a failsafe where people compete against the dealer if their opponent no shows. Maybe starting next week.

Anyways good luck to the people who will be competing this weekend!
