    I didn't know what to call this draft, but let me explain the idea.

    In each round, I would present a pool of 16 films (with something in common). I would not be participating in the draft. Once the pool is posted, it's first come, first serve. The round would continue until all the films were selected (actually only 15 of the 16 need to be chosen), or until approximately 24 hours have passed, at which point those who hadn't selected would get one of the remaining films randomly assigned to their list.

    I think this will obviously speed up the process, and mix up the picks quite a bit. I hope to have an interesting variety of pools.

    Anyway, that's the idea. If you're interested, join up. Once 16 people join, I'll begin the first round. Anyone can join, but it certainly helps if you can get to the HTF every day (the draft will run 7 days a week).

    I’m in George, although I often travel without notice and am unable to check-in every day.
    Guess those days, I’ll lose. [​IMG]

    Drafts are good. Others can make fun of the terrible picks you make. [​IMG]

    I'm in too. There'll be days when I can't check in but I should be able to keep them to a minimum.

    Just a few more words about the pools before we get started. I'm striving for a variety of films. My 16 selections each time aren't necessarily the 'best' or even 'my favorite' 16. I'm striving for an interesting variety. Also, if a film got picked in one pool, it won't be in another pool, even if it's an obvious choice. Finally, we've all seen different films, and I'm hoping most drafters will have seen most of the films, but I obviously can't guarantee that. Oh, and if you don't like any of the remaining films at some point, hold your nose and pick the one you dislike least, or you may end up with the one you hate the most. [​IMG]
    We'll have at least 10 rounds, but perhaps more if there's interest and I can come up with good pools.
    Ok, first round. 16 selected Humphrey Bogart movies:
    Across The Pacific
    Action In The North Atlantic
    The African Queen
    The Big Sleep
    The Caine Mutiny
    Casablanca
    Dark Passage
    High Sierra
    Key Largo
    The Maltese Falcon
    Passage To Marseilles
    Sabrina
    Sahara
    To Have & Have Not
    Treasure Of The Sierra Madre
    We're No Angels
    First come, first serve. [​IMG]
