ABC Deadpool - a new one by Wormfarmer

Recommended Posts

Well, I can see where this is going.  I appreciate all the input.  I also like free play, but I just figured that it would be fun to have the extra incentive to have something to play for.  But I kind of see now that a lot of you guys already put a very high level of effort into it with or without the stakes.  So we will carry on as last year, with only a symbolic trophy to the winner. 

I also appreciate the ideas from Toast on how to get the game started.  But I am not sure if I have the gumption for all the organizing and retyping needed on my end . . . . .let me think. 

I don't see anything so far against the idea of jokers, so that may be the way to go this year.  Ears still open to more feedback until the end of June .  . . . .

Maryportfc has a good system for this. 

You open a thread for the new game, and you make a couple more posts after the opening post.

These are reserved for the master list, scoreboard and list of teams.  You can fill them in later at your leisure, using the edit facility.

 

Teams are easy, most people will post their teams once the game has started and then you can just copy & paste them in.

So it's just the master list to be done from scratch, and you only have to do it once.

 

Having the scoreboard on the first page means you can periodically edit it for updates, and it's easy to find.

1. If the entries are to be PMed to Wormfamer, than how can we know whether or not anyone else has designated any of the names as JOKERS? Maybe not have Jokers?

2. If a Choice we should make dies before the official start, should we just PM the replacement? (Having substitutes will not work in this game since there would have to be one for each letter.)

Hopefully this won't be a large issue though.

1.  There's no need for jokers to be exclusive.

2.  Yes, substitutes to be provided only when necessary.

I think with the jokers part he could make a public list of used jokers so people are less likely to joker someone who’s been jokered already from someone...

But why bother?   This rule was intended to replace the "protected" picks, but if as I suggested the entries are kept confidential until the pool starts, there's no need for it.  There's no opportunity to copy or be be influenced by other contestants' choices.

This is all becoming very unclear. If we are to submit teams by the end of the month, I do think we need clarity on a definitive set of rules.

Give me a minute to sort this all out.  I will end the speculation and set some clarity soon.

@Wormfarmer Asghar Khan died on January 5th and got a QO via the Mail. Points should be added there...
