The DVDTalk Amazing Race Game -- Spring 2013 Edition

The DVDTalk Amazing Race Game No. 6, The Spring 2013 Edition!




The season premiere is Sunday, Feb. 17 at 8 PM

The jist of the game: For an entry fee of just $3, everyone chooses a team to latch on to before the start of the season. If that team ends up winning race, then YOU will win a $33 Amazon.com gift certificate. 100% of the entry fees will go to the prize fund.

We will be using the First-to-Post selection method for the draft. You may post 1 and only 1 team during the draft. This is strictly first-come-first-serve. Anybody posting a list will only have rights to the first team in the post. If they have already been taken, you will need to post again.

Once again this season there will be 22 DVDTalkers and 2 drafts. The resulting game will produce DVDTalk teams of 2 for each team in the Amazing Race and at the end of the season, we will have 2 winners of $33 Amazon GCs.

The first draft will be held Thursday, Feb. 14 at 9:00 PM EST (6 PM Pacific) and the 2nd draft will be held on Saturday Feb. 16 at noon EST (9 AM Pacific). The DVDTalk timestamp of your post determines validity. If you are too early, you will need to post again.


This season's 11 teams:

Bates & Anthony (Hockey Brothers)
Jennifer & Caroline (Country Singers)
Wynona & Chuck (Married)
David & Conner (Father & Son)
Idries & Jamil (Twin Doctors)
Jessica & John Erck (Dating)
Joey & Meghan (YouTube Hosts)
Max & Katie (Newlyweds)
Matthew & Daniel (Firefighters)
Mona & Beth (Roller Derby Moms)
Pamela & Winnie (Best Friends)


You may learn more about the teams at the CBS web site: http://www.cbs.com/shows/amazing_race/

Post now if you want to play and include which draft you want to participate in (Thursday or Saturday) and I will contact you with my PayPal information by Private Message. You may choose whichever draft is most convenient for you until one of them sells out. After a draft sells out you will be assigned to the draft time that still has openings.

All payments must be made via PayPal by 3 AM EST Wednesday Feb. 13. If you haven't paid by then, your spot may be released to another player.

Please, please, please! Include your DVDTalk screen name in a comment with your PayPal payment! This is necessary so that I can match people up with their payments. Also, please use the Personal Gift option as this will avoid seller fees.

If the contest doesn't sell out and an unclaimed team wins, the prize will go to whoever has the highest finisher.

Good Luck!

As always, I'm down for taking another slot in the game if it doesn't fill up.

Drafting on Valentine's Day? You have no confidence in our love lives, do you.

I did think about that, but historically I've held the drafts on Thursday and Saturday and in the age of the Smartphone, I think everybody has a little more flexibilty.

Did you want to enter the game this season?

Re: The DVDTalk Amazing Race Game -- Spring 2013 Edition

Is Valentine's Day to blame for the slower than normal sign up rate?

We still have 16 openings.

Yes, but neither of those times works for me so I'm holding back for the moment.

...and you're both drafting Saturday so the defending champs have been split up!

I don't know where everybody went, but we may need to contract back down to a single draft. We still need 2 entries to sell out one round, and if we don't get them soon, I will be forced to reduce this season to a single draft.

All the Survivor Players should enter. There are much better odds of winning this game.

I'm game. I'll go for Saturday if they'll end up still being 2 drafts. If not, I'm cool with whatever.

Wow, Survivor has more spots open (20 this season) and it books up in about 24 hours. Meanwhile, Amazing Race is struggling to fill even the first 11. What's up with that?
