Post 2018 Draft Sign Ups! Suggest films for the draft pool!
Image

Hello all! Time for our fourth annual box office draft game! This year, I think we will draft 15 movies instead of 20. It will again be a snake draft, and you pick by posting in the thread in the games forum, and we each take turns making picks.

At the end of 2018, 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 2019 for grosses.

Draft order would be random.
No penalties, 550m cap per film.

There will again be a pool, that will be selected after signups.

If you have any suggestions or concerns, feel free to PM me.

I'm in. My job at the theater is taking a lot of my time as we're understaffed and getting busy. I haven't been on the site as much lately, but last years draft has gone pretty well so far so I'll give it another shot.

That was sooner than soon, shouldn't we give it another half day or so for people who still want to join finally?

But it's all good for me, and we have an even number of players which is better anyway.

I pmd everyone who has played in the past, and the only messages still in the outbox are BK, Moviegeek and Kenspy who seem to have all abandoned the site.

With so few players, isn't one group enough? I've not played before so I am not sure on the history of why there are two groups..

Can I get a bonus if my film(s) gets like 8 oscar nominations?

Maybe each Oscar nomination is a 10 million bonus?

Mulan is TBD after being set for November, so no way it makes 2018. And The Last Key is part of this year's draft.

But The others will be added!

There are few potentially high-grossing "Untitled" projects on BOM's list, such as a Robert Zemeckis one and a Lightstorm one.

Regarding Insidious: The Last Key, what difference does it make if it is on this year's draft? It comes out in 2018.
