The DVDTalk Amazing Race Game - Winter 2018 Edition

Welcome to The DVDTalk Amazing Race Game No. 14, The Winter 2018 Edition!





The season premiere is Wednesday, Jan. 3.

The jist of the game: For an entry fee of just $5, everyone chooses a team to latch onto before the start of the season. If that team ends up winning race, 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 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.

This season we will start with one draft on Thursday Dec. 28 and if there is sufficient demand for another round, a second draft will be held Saturday Dec. 30.

The first draft will be held Thursday Dec. 28 at 9:00 PM EST (6 PM Pacific) and the 2nd draft (if needed) will be held on Saturday Dec. 30 at 1 PM EST (10 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:

Cedric and Shawn #TeamSlamDunk
April and Sarah #TeamGoatYoga
Cody and Jessica #TeamBigBrother
Henry and Evan #TeamYale
Trevor and Chris #TeamWellStrung
Alexander and Conor #TeamIndyCar
Dessie and Kayla #TheRingGirls
Joey and Tim #TeamChomp
Kristi and Jen #TeamExtreme
Lucas and Brittany #TeamOceanRescue
Eric and Daniel #TheFirefighters

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

All payments must be made via PayPal by 3 AM EST Wednesday Dec. 27 for Thursday's draft and Friday Feb. 29 by 3 AM EST for Saturday's draft (if needed). 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!

All above are in and the game is now sold out!

I will add a second round if we get at least 5 more unique entries.

I sent PM invitations to everyone that has played the Amazing Race game during the last 4 seasons and some regulars haven’t checked in yet, so I’m confident that we will have 2 rounds.

Thanks. I know I can count on 5-6 people to take double entries, thatís why I need at least 5 unique entries to start the second game.
