    Sheep Draft Version 2.0

    For those not familiar with the first Sheep Draft, I ask a question for example:
    - Select a Cricket with a highest Test score over 250?

    You email your answer to me, if someone else selects the same player as you, neither of you get that player. You then have a second and third chance, but after 3 unsuccessful attempts another selector gets to chose a player for you, so you are most likely left with the worst player possible.

    There will be 12 rounds in total, giving you a chance to balance your final XI a bit more as you'll have no idea what questions are coming.

    I'll start this thing once we get at least 8 people, happy for us to have more than 8 though.

    Cant be a regular as I can't promise to be online at the times expected. I am on CW every day of the week though, at some point or the other.. So if that is ok, would love to be in. Otherwise, I will be happy judging this one from the outside along with the others.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    Okay no googling, other search engines are allowed though.

    No, I think it's too hard to monitor, so you can select your side by whatever method you like.

    I'll give you all an example of how this will work.
    Question 1A Select a Cricketer with a highest Test score of over 250?
    metallics2006 - Don Bradman
    Matt79 - Don Bradman
    Blakus - Jacques Kallis
    Somerset - Wasim Akram
    G.I.Joe - Martin Crowe

    I would write back:
    metallics2006 - fail (bradman)
    Matt79 - fail (bradman)
    Blakus - fail (didn't meet criteria Kallis)
    Somerset - PASS
    G.I.Joe - PASS

    So 1b would mean metallics, matt and blakus have to pick again
    Metallics - Wasim Akram
    Matt - Stephen Fleming
    Blakus - Martin Crowe

    I would write back
    Metallics - fail (Akram chosen in 1a)
    Matt - pass
    Blakus - fail (Crowe chosen in 1a)

    So 1c would be for Metallics and Blakus
    Metallics - VVS Laxman
    Blakus - Stephen Fleming

    Metallics - pass
    Blakus - fail (fleming chosen in 1b)

    so that would mean the next person to post will select a player for Blakus, it's recommended to chose the worst player so perhaps Bryan Young would be Blakus player.

    Round 1 final results
    metallics2006 - VVS Laxman
    Matt79 - Stephen Fleming
    Blakus - Bryan Young
    Somerset - Wasim Akram
    G.I.Joe - Martin Crowe

    I'll be doing 2 questions at a time, so say the name has been selected in rounds 2a and 1c, the 2a selection would actually count..

    I hope that it's not too confusing, I'll start in a minute..
