The season premiere is Thursday, March 30 and this time the contestants are individuals who will be teamed up with a stranger at the start of the race!

The jist of the game: For an entry fee of just $5, everyone chooses two players in a two round draft to latch onto before the start of the season. If one of your picks ends up winning the race, then YOU will win a $27.50 Amazon.com gift certificate. (If by chance you are lucky enough to draft one of the actual teams and that teams wins, then you will win a $55 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 player during each round of the draft. This is strictly first-come-first-serve. Anybody posting a list will only have rights to the first player in the post. If they have already been taken, you will need to post again.

This season we will start with one draft with two rounds on Monday March 27 and if there is sufficient demand for another game, a second draft will be held Tuesday March 28. The winner(s) will receive $27.50 Amazon Gift Certificates.

The first round of the draft will be held Monday, March 27 at 9:00 PM EDT (6 PM Pacific) and the 2nd draft (if needed) will be held on Tuesday March 28 at 9 PM EDT (6 PM Pacific). The DVDTalk timestamp of your post determines validity. If you are too early, you will need to post again.

The second round of each draft will be held a half hour later at 9:30 PM EDT (6:30 Pacific).

In the first round we will each be drafting one of the women:

Ashton (Realtor)
Becca (Rock Climber)
Brooke (Attorney)
Francesca (Military Drill Sgt.)
Jennifer (Model)
Jessica (K-9 Police Officer)
Liz (Auctioneer)
London (Artist)
Olive (Firefighter)
Sara (Realtor)
Tara (Military Mom)

In the second round we will each be drafting one of the men:

Floyd (Drum Major)
Joey (Police Officer)
Kevin (Trainer)
Logan (Surgical Consultant)
Matt (Snowboarder)
Michael (Biker)
Redmond (ex-Navy)
Scott (Recruiter)
Seth (Police Officer)
Shamir (Wall Street Banker)
Vanck (Wall Street Analyst)


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

Post now if you want to play and I will contact you with my PayPal information by Private Message.

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 the first game sells out, there will be a waiting list for the second game. Once that list reaches 5, then the 2nd game will be on.

All payments must be made via PayPal by 3 AM EST Sunday March 26. If you haven't paid by then, your spot may be released to another player.

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!

I'm in. I believe we've talked about doing a "draft" for this game in the past, but this season it makes the most sense. Looking forward it.

The season with some blind dates was one of the best ones. I guess they decided to take the concept to the next level.

you're in!

I will now start a waiting list for a possible second game for the Tuesday March 28 draft. Once I have 5 players, the game will be on. Please don't send any money until you hear from me.

Re: The DVDTalk Amazing Race Game -- Spring 2017 Edition

We now have 3 on the waiting list. We need 2 more to make the game a go.

I think we'll get there because a few regulars haven't checked in yet.
