Just like the other drafts only I won't get tired of this one and snap at people when they yell at me.

We'll be drafting Simpsons characters. Me and seven other people will play. (Draft order will be started with a random number.) When each team has ten characters, the teams will be bracketed up for competition. I have a very elaborate way to have the tournament battles last a long time - but just remember to draft characters that A) you really like, and B) you think OTHER Simpsons fans really like.

Please join in if you're a Simpsons freak. When we have all eight players I'll have the final rules all figured out.

It's so funny that you'd recommend that inclusion, Nick. Once we have a full eight, I was planning on bringing up the Futurama question to a vote! I swear!

Looks like you've got your eight!

Scott, thanks for the invite, but I haven't watched The Simpsons in years so I'd probably be at a disadvantage anyway. I'll watch from the sidelines...

You have 8 already but I'd like to join if you decide to include more. Sounds like a fun draft ...

OK, I crunched some numbers and we're gonna stick with eight teams. We all know how cranky I can get if my games get too big and sweaty.

I asked my niece to come up with a number between 0 and 9. She said "6" which means our order will go like this:

Nick Sievers
Matt Stone
Scott Weinberg
Ric Bagoly
Thomas C.
Mike Hutman
Brad Porter
Walt Riarson


Nick picks first and the order goes 1-8, 8-1, 1-8, etc.

Nick can pick after we decide on a few things:

1. Should we allow Futurama characters to be included?

2. How many picks should each team get? 8, 10 or 12?

3. Should we have a time limit?

Once all eight players have voted, we start!

(My votes: 1. Yes 2. 10 3. Yes)

If you're one of the players, please subscribe to this thread so you'll know when your turn is up. And if y'all could give a "BLANK's up!" after you make your pick I bet it well help keep things moving along.

Thanky.

1. Only as a supplemental draft at the end if everyone is still participating. Otherwise I vote no.
2. 10 sounds good.
3. Are the time limits helpful in most drafts? Do they do anything other than delay the selection of the next person in line? Has anyone tried it without a time limit? Did anarchy ensue? I'll side with the majority on this one.
