Post WOKJ Box Office Draft 2019 - Signup Thread
Image

Welcome to the Fifth Annual Box Office Draft. Due to zwackerm stepping down after last year's draft, I will be running it this year. I plan to have 20 movies for each player to pick, and it will be a snake draft with a difference as below:

123456 then 654321 then 654321 then 123456 then back to the start.

HOW TO PLAY:
You pick movies by posting in the thread in the games forum, and we each take turns making picks. At the end of 2019, the US grosses* are added up and whoever has the highest total wins. For movies released later in the year, we will simply wait for their runs to end.

The movie pool will be posted after signups (to allow as much time as possible for date changes). We need 5 players for this game to run. There will be 5 players per group, so we need multiples of 5.

Signups have begun. Picking will start on 1st Dec.

NEW RULES:
- Cap is now $500m. New rule as suggested by i.hope. But only the first 5 movies will have the cap. The rest are free to make more if they can.
- The _axiom Rule: If any player does an _axiom and leaves mid-pick, we skip their go each round and give them the remaining movies left at the end.
- Once picks are done, swaps are allowed.
- There will be a 24hr max time limit on picks. If you take longer than that, it is the next player's pick and you have to wait until to the next round. Picking is the ONLY part of gameplay in this game, and so you're either committed to it or you're not. You can send your picks to me in advance (or post them to the group) so your slots can be auto-filled when your turn comes.
- There will be a list of back-up films. There also have to be drafted but only get to be used if films from the list proper are moved out of 2019 or do not get a theatrical release. The player may choose one of the back-up films to replace the movie. Two back-up choices per player. New rule suggested by Jack Sparrow.
- For every film that breaks a box office record (listed on BOM's all-time page), add $50m to your total (max. 2 records per movie). New rule as suggested by Algren.
- The player with the most amount of $100m picks gets an additional $100m added to their total. New rule as suggested by nghtvsn.
- A player's final round pick is chosen by the player after them. New rule as suggested by stuffp.
* When all picks have been made, each player can choose to flip from US gross to China gross for 1 of their picks. Choice must be made and posted in the group by 31st December 2018. New rule as suggested by nghtvsn.

SIGNUPS:
1. Algren
2. MGKC
3. Rev
4. zwackerm
5. stuffp
6. Flava'd vs The World
7. nghtvsn
8. i.hope
9. SolC9
10. David

Great! So the game is definitely going ahead. Now I hope we can get another 5 players for a second group.

And yeah, the banner took a bit. lol. I had to remove Wonder Woman just recently from it which was annoying. But I had Rambo ready to take her place. :D

ty Algren for continuing the game

i like all the new modifiers in the game especially flipping one of your film's US gross. That can be a game changer.

Don't worry guys, if Algren hadn't been willing to take over I would have still done it this year. Don't know why the draft starts so late though.

I thought you were a good host zwackerm. The only thing I didn't like was the pre-determined list of films, as researching sleepers was the best part of Kenspy's version.

It’s because I was lazy and it was easier to update the charts if they had the same movies

To be honest, I never experienced Kenspy's version so wasn't aware there was a time when there wasn't a predetermined set of films. I'm open to it, I guess. But I'd prefer to just have a set list. I cannot see any issue with it so long as it's thorough enough.

By the way guys, regarding the country gross switcher from US to China, you have to choose wisely because it must be released in the same calendar year. Many releases can have a delayed release in China, so just be aware of that. And there is no yearly schedule for films being released in China, so you'll just have to guess based on the studio/production company, status of the movie, its stars, etc. whether it will be released in 2019 or later.
