Re: Be the Producer A Movie Talk Draft Game

How many people do we have? It looks to be 10 or so, a round robin style tourney may work out well. Every one would matchup against every one else once, kinda like a H2H fantasy league. We could total the votes after each round and have standings, should be fun.

Can people still join and catch up their picks?

I say close it off, or if someone wants to join in, they pick up where everyone else is and the first 1,2,3,etc. picks they missed get tacked onto the last draft day. So if someone hopped in now they would get to pick for today, but yesterday's pick falls into the last day where they would get 4 picks.

Let's give people until, say, Monday or Tuesday to join in.

This, except anyone joining late can make one extra pick their first day.

Re: Be the Producer A Movie Talk Draft Game

After talking it over with woody5254, we've decided to keep it at 16 players. So that means that there are 3 slots left.

And note, I'm talking about Wicker Man/Zandalee Nicolas Cage, not Weatherman/Adaptation Cage.

I'll join, but I'll have to re-read the rules to figure it out :P

Re: Be the Producer A Movie Talk Draft Game

If a book title is being used as a framework for the Franchise vs. Franchise story does the book title have to be listed as a franchise?

par example:
"Romeo and Juliet" -- Transformers (Montagues) vs. Gobots (Capulets)

Re: Be the Producer A Movie Talk Draft Game

Considering Romeo and Juliet (the play) is a remake, I think that would be safe. Story archetypes are good.

That's it.

Re: Be the Producer A Movie Talk Draft Game

Is everything up to date in post #2?

I'm not sure if it was asked or if I'm missing it in the rules, how does multi-talent work?

i.e. Can someone pick Kevin Smith the actor and someone else pick Kevin Smith the director and another for Kevin Smith the writer? Or is he off the table upon first pick? Can the same person use the same actor/writer/director for 2-3 different roles?

I know at least Brad Bird is missing from the Director list.

Yes, talent is available for differing roles. So Kevin Smith can be a director, an actor, a supporting actor, one of the two screenwriters, etc. If you want him to be involved in more aspects of your movie, you have to keep drafting him for the role(s) you want him in.

What? It needs to be up to date before we draft today, so we know what's off the table. Yaphet Kotto is another not in post #2.

... and Brad Bird is a hell of a pick. Probably someone who could have slid by for a few rounds.
