There will be backups in next year's game. That was already included months ago, but it is not really going to make much difference when a blockbuster is postponed. The backups will most likely be films with small potential (but are guaranteed to be released). It is just so you have something (rather than nothing) when a film is moved.


Good luck running this game next year Algren, I'm sure you will be great at it :thumbsup:


Well, it will be a better run game, the only question mark is whether we'll have enough players.

I am sure there will be enough players because a lot of people love this game regardless of who is running this game, plus I will help you spread awareness even if I don't play the game myself.

Give default points based on the rounds incase a movie moves out example below:
Round 1: $150m,
Round 2: $130m,
Round 3: $110m,
Round 4: $90m,
Round 5: $70m,
Round 6: $50m,
Round 7: $40m,
Round 8: $35m,
Round 9: $30m,
Round 10: $25m,
Round 11: $20m,
Round 12: $15m,
Round 13: $10m,
Round 14: $5m,
Round 15: $3m

You can change the variations according to suggestions from each player.

A movie possibly moving off the schedule is part of your ability to predict. Adding some backups for that eventuality is fair, but giving points for it is not.

I noticed the max has been upped to $550m from $500m. Was there a reason given for this change?

I suggest keeping the cap at $500m next time.

Also, just a random fun one; the last of one's picks is chosen by the one after you...so it's about giving the other person the worst pick of those left...would be funny if it backfires in the end, and you've actually ended up helping the other person.

Its case by case basis yes, but that statement is not true always. I don't think anyone would have predicted Dark Phoenix to be moved or an April movie New Mutants with a trailer could have moved out of 2018 schedule.

You're probably right, and that's the gamble. Is it just a coincidence that none of my picks have moved out of 2018? Nope. ;)

So its a coincidence that two of my picks moved out of 2018? Nope.

Well, yes, it is. Otherwise you're claiming they moved in a bid to sabotage your draft. Which is more unlikely?

You picked badly.

They weren't bad picks obviously. Its an unfortunate situation that they moved out but they weren't bad picks. And I was trying (badly) to do a word-play :P

Joking aside, you should not partake in word play. It is the source of much confusion between you and other members, and you are never the one that comes out on top. Just a bit of advice there.

Overboard might actually get 40. I'll take it.
Life of the Party is not doing what I expected though.

Here Jack is complaining, but he's quietly got the highest grossing film of the last round.
