Post Box Office Draft 2016
Image
This year, as Kenspy is unable to check the forum more frequently than once a week, he has asked me to step in as main admin, as well as start the game earlier than last year. This will be a draft similar to a fantasy draft. This year, I think it would be fun to draft more movies, and there is no cap on sign ups.It will be a snake draft. Can post a thread in the games forum, and we each take turns making picks. It'll probably take at least a week to complete the draft, and probably more like two-three weeks depending on how active people are.

At the end of 2016, we add up the North American gross of all of the films, and whoever has the highest total wins. Because some movies are released very late in the year, we can extend it through the end of January 2017 for grosses.

Draft order would be random.

New Rules for this year include
1. Instead of penalties, there will be a 500 million gross cap on all films.
2. If a film moves out of the 2016 window, the player will need to pick a replacement within 3 days of receiving a PM from me. The penalty will be 35 million instead of 10 million to discourage replacements, and the film must be 4 months or further from release to avoid any tracking advantage. So no replacements will be allowed in the final third of the year.

Deadline to sign up is Sunday, December 6th at 11:59 PM Eastern Time. Either post below or personal message me.

Sign ups so far

1. Kenspy
2. zwackerm
3. Stuffp
4. Jack Sparrow
5. _Axiom
6. MGKC
7. David
8. Nghtvsn
9. SolC9
10. Rev
11. Flava'd vs. The world
12. Moviegeek
13. Chippy
14. BK
15. Corpse

I can't really do much worse than 2015. Pretty much everything I picked bombed except for Minions and San Andreas.

Whoops, could have sworn I'd added him. Sorry about that! Only one I've blocked is Thegun, and he can still play if he wants. I'll reveal his posts in this thread if he posts.

Not excited for many movies but sure I'm in.

Are we splitting again? 14 people in a draft is way too many.

Despite massive disappointments like Mockingjay, movies like Ultron and Star Wars would never make below a certain amount.

Definitely splitting.

Spreadsheets are ready. But we'll still leave the sign ups open until the 6th. It's a bit disappointing we only have stuffp as a new player. Hopefully we'll get more.

You're barking up the wrong tree. Lecter has previously barked there and was made to look a complete fool.

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.
