MusicTalk Draft Game – Draft Thread (All are welcome to play!)

A variation of this game has recently been played in the DVDTalk and TVTalk Forums moderated by Groucho.

The idea behind the game is that all the players “draft” a 10 CD collection, and then square off to see who has the best “virtual collection”. By draft, I mean selecting one album at a time to add to your collection in turn (like in sports, or in grade school where captains would pick teams)

Detailed rules:

1. Draft picks are "first come, first serve."

2. Rounds will begin every 24 hours at 9am Pacific (excluding weekends). The DVDTalk server clock will be the official timekeeper, so watch your timestamps! Any picks made outside the official time will be ignored. You'll need to repost them within the correct time frame.

3. For each round, players can draft one album (for example: “Miles Davis – Kind Of Blue”).

4. Once everybody has drafted 10 albums, we’ll have a bracket tournament. You’ll be randomly paired up, and the forum will vote on who has the best collection.

5. Restrictions:

a. You can only draft one album per artist. (You can’t draft every U2 album – pick your favorite!)

b. You can only draft one box set. A box set is defined as a multi-disc set combining multiple previously released recordings in one package (for example: “Tom Petty - Playback” (6 discs) would count as a box set while “The Magnetic Fields - 69 Love Songs (3 Discs) would count as a single album)

**Note** If a box set is drafted that collects the albums of an artist (i.e. "The Doors - The Complete Studio Recordings"), the individual albums contained in that box set are still eligible to be drafted.

c. You cannot draft an album that as already been drafted by drafting a “special edition” of that album. (for example: If a contestant has drafted “Interpol – Antics”, you cannot draft “Interpol – Antics:SE”). The same rule applies with albums that have been re-released. You may draft a certain release (i.e. “Bob Dylan – Blonde on Blonde: SACD/Remastered”) but that would make any previous release of the same album ineligible.

6. The field will be limited to 32 players. If we do not reach 32 contestants, there may be several players who receive a “bye” in the first round of voting.

7. If you miss two rounds in a row, you will be replaced with an alternate. Alternates will enter the game in a "first come, first serve" fashion when this occurs, and will "inherit" the existing collection. If we don not reach 32 players, the game will continue to accept new players up until the first round of voting.

8. SPECIAL NOTE: This game will take approximately two weeks to play (weekdays only). Please do not sign up if you don’t think you can play the entire time.

9. Draft picks will be tracked in the second post of this thread.

10. After all the “collections” have been drafted, the bracket tourney will begin, and continue for five rounds until we have a grand champion.

11. Good Luck!
Please let me know if there’s anything you don’t understand.

[[[[Obvious, but definitive nonetheless: I choose The Beatles, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band]]]]]]

EDIT: Didn't read the rules too carefully, but since noone has made this selection, please change my choice to "The Beatles Ultimate Box Set"

auto- I just noticed in the rules that you are limited to just one box set. I would appreciate it if you could change my first round pick to-Johnny Cash: Unearthed(box set). Thanks.
