Post WOKJ Box Office Draft 2019: Group 1 - Algren leading
Current standings:

1. Algren $2,036,322,670
2. nghtvsn $1,826,253,734
3. MGKC $1,731,470,276
4. stuffp $1,554,517,921
5. Flava'd vs the World $1,234,160,631

------

Welcome to Group 1 of WOKJ's Box Office Draft 2019. This is the draft order:

1. stuffp
2. Flava'd vs The World
3. Algren
4. MGKC
5. nghtvsn


Here is the table: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... sp=sharing

Picking starts on 4th December. We will have 1 month to pick before the first film is released. If you want to start picking right away, up to you. But nobody is forced to. Depends on whoever's turn it is.

You guys that don't visit the forum daily, might be a good idea to post a draft preference in the next few days.

Rules

1. Draft order as so: 12345 then 54321 then 54321 then 12345 then back to the start.

2. 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 preferably post them to the group) so your slots can be auto-filled when your turn comes.

3. Cap is now $500m. But only the first 5 movies will have the cap. The rest are free to make more if they can.

4. 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.

5. Once picks are done, swaps are allowed.

6. Once the draft proper has been picked, each player may pick two films from the backup list. These are 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. Order of picking is 54321. Each player picks 2 films, out of the list of 25 backups.

7. For every film that breaks a box office record (as listed on BOM's all-time page), add $50m to your total (max. 2 records per movie).

8. The player with the most amount of $100m picks gets an additional $100m added to their total.

9. A player's final round pick is chosen by the player after them.

10. 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 4th January 2019.

I thought it was odd that Wicked and Cats opened on the same weekend. In that case, let's remove Wicked and put Downton Abbey in its place.

How does updating the excel table work, or will just the admin do that anyway?

First row is for the film, and the second row for it's release date or gross?

It's a bit different than zwackerm's previous year's tables.

I'll do the updates. And yes, I never understood the way it was done last year with multiple tabs for each group, all the tabs basically gave the same information. My way is one tab per group. Simple.

Ok, cool.
I've gone through 2019'a slate and got a bit of an idea of the big films and what should perhaps breakout or disappoint. Not sure how I'm feeling about later round choices yet, but will get to that once we get there.

Might as well kick this off already.

Gross, obviously. :P

Release date is not important enough to be shown. You should know that yourselves. Once all of the picks are made, I will try to put colours to ones coming out in the current month just as zwackerm did.

Yeah, I wasn't sure if they would perhaps be another table added later or not...just going by zwacks previous first sheet which included just film and date.

The first tab was for the initial picks. The others were to show who was leading.

Also, if there were no $500M cap I would have chosen The Lion King. I think it will make $700M+ compared to Star Wars which will top out at about $675M. Buttt in a worst scenario like wretched reviews, sex scandal, volcanos, Trump, etc... I would still trust that enough Star Wars fans would come out for it.

Oh and I just remembered that Minecraft was also delayed. Mojo needs to get their stuff together. They used to be the only reliable source for the full release schedule.
