    I'm a fan of a chain draft, as well. Where your new pick must link to your previous pick (Jager can set the potential 'links' - be it era, country, etc.).
    So there would be 12 links that you would have to use up during the course of the Draft?

    That's not what I was thinking, really. I think that's too similar to the clause draft.

    Pick One could be Garry Sobers.
    Pick Two Curtly Ambrose via West Indian nationality.
    Pick Three Fred Trueman via having a batting average within two runs of Ambrose.
    Pick Four could be Ian Botham via English nationality.

    For example.

    I'd prefer a free, classic draft, though, personally.

    It could go very silly. Pick Tubby Taylor because he's fat like Inzamam ul Haq.

    Where do you draw the line exactly?

    Jager would set the exact 'links' that could be made. I'd suggest a maximum of about seven.

    So it's a bit like a Clause Draft with an extra restriction, and hence more difficult?

    OK.

    !

    Sounds like a classic, normal draft has good support so far. Unfortunately kyear, Bradman will never be available in a draft where the picks are ordered.
    Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick

    What about a simple clause like you need to pick at least one player from each test playing nation. Keeps it a bit more interesting tactically.


    I also really liked the idea of having a limit on the amount of tests your team has played. Say 250 tests max for your entire team would be interesting...

    I think chain draft would be fun. We did enjoy the Scorecard Draft so yeah something like that can be fun compared to our classic drafts.

    All that chain draft talk did remind me of the Scorecard Draft as well.

    I'm in favour of a classic draft ftr.

    The original scorecard draft was run by G.I. Joe in 2010.
