The DVDTalk Amazing Race Game -- Spring 2015 Edition

The DVDTalk Amazing Race Game No. 10, The Spring 2015 Edition!




The season premiere is Wednesday, Feb. 25 and this time it's an all dating couples edtion, including 5 blind dates!

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 Saturday, Feb. 21 at 12:00 PM EST (9 AM Pacific) and the 2nd draft will be held on Monday Feb. 23 at 10 PM EST (7 PM 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:

Aly & Steve
CJ & Lebya
Harley & Jonathan
Jeff & Lyda
Matt & Ashley
Rochelle & Mike
Bergen & Kurt (Blind date!)
Blair & Hayley (Blind date!)
Jackie & Jeffrey (Blind date!)
Jelani & Jenny (Blind date!)
Tyler & Laura (Blind date!)

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 (Saturday or Monday) 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.

Bopper Rule: If for whatever reason, an announced contestant that you drafted is replaced by a substitute during the show, you will get the substitute in place of your original pick.

Please do not edit or delete posts during the draft, if your pick has already been taken or you were too early, you will need to post again. Screen captures will be taken during the draft and violations of this rule will result in your pick being revoked and you will be given the last unclaimed team in the draft as a penalty. (AKA the Quack play).

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 Friday Feb. 20 for Saturday's draft and Sunday Feb. 22 by 3 AM EST for Monday's draft. If you haven't paid by then, your spot may be released to another player.

Second entries for Monday's draft will be made available about a half hour after Saturday's draft for anyone that wants another team to root for.

Please, please, please! Include your DVDTalk screen name along with "Amazing Race Game" 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!

Please note that the 2nd Amazing Race draft will be held one hour after the Survivor draft on Monday the 23rd. It will also be one hour later than our usual evening draft time, at 10 PM EST instead of the usual 9 PM.

I may be Quacking this year since I'm busy during both drafts.

I guess I'll try Saturday.

Good idea to bump for the weekday (though it's a holiday for some people who are not me).

Re: The DVDTalk Amazing Race Game -- Spring 2015 Edition

Not sure I can make either draft this year.

Put me down for Monday. Hopefully I can make it, but if not, I'll take the default team, whatever that winds up being.

Likewise I'd be in for Monday if we decide to open up to allow a second team.
