    Ultimate Test Draft

    Probably getting the stage where is is overkill. But I always wanted to do a draft with a bit of difference and based on criteria. Basically the draft will be based on picking players from 10 different eras.

    Basically you would need a player who debuted from each of these eras:
    - 1877-1899
    - 1900-1919
    - 1920-1929
    - 1930-1949
    - 1950-1959
    - 1960-1969
    - 1970-1979
    - 1980-1989
    - 1990-1999
    - 2000+

    You pick a player who debuted from each of those eras and then last round you pick anyone.

    Reckon this could separate the men from the boys and see who really know their cricket history.

    If we haven't reached over kill and there is either 6 or 8 guys interested. Just post here. I want to keep the pool short so we get high quality sides.

    I'll take part in this. It isn't like I have anything better to do...

    Are we only allowed to take a player from a certain era each round, or do we just need one from each era and we can take them in any order we like as long as we fulfill the requirements?

    Nah you have to take a player from a certain era each round. I thought about the other way but just thought everyone would just pick the older players last.

    I'm in. Is the period nominated for the entire round, or do we just have to make sure that we have one from each era by the end of round 10 - ie. round one, do we all have to pick pre-1899. And how to we manage the turn progression? Don't know that serpentine will work here as it means the people in the middle never get to pick one of the top few cricketers of their day. Maybe a sliding order? If you go first in round 1, you go to last in round 2, and every one else moves up one, repeated each round?

    I like this idea. I hate the whole you go first one round and last the next round. For something like this you want to be in the middle.

    So basically

    Round One: (1,2,3,4,5,6)
    Round Two: (2,3,4,5,6,1)
    etc

    Maybe make it so the first drafter in each round chooses the decade rather than have us going in a predetermined order? But still make sure that every era has to be chosen at least once.

    Fine with that.

    One more spot left so we can keep this quick.

    One more guys. It 12 hours per pick, just so you can keep things moving.

    Actually prefer we do it with the set order initially specified. Otherwise, as first stated, the 19th century guys will be left til last. Reckon it adds to it to have the players we're all more familiar with amongst the last ones picked.

    Agreed - I like the way it was first set out.
