    Happy to do a pointless Theme Draft here FTR/run it for everyone in another thread - think it'd be fun too

    *when I say pointless, I mean not for championship points

    I think an Era Draft would be best IMO. Although, we wouldn't be scraping the barrel. Maybe we should think of some ideas that limit the pool somewhat?

    The most fun drafts are those you can plan ahead for, those within which you get annoyed when your picks get taken, those where the best players are always taken first and you work your way down the ladder. Sheep Drafts are a bit difficult to do that.

    Tbh I think the sheep draft is all about planning, and he fact it will limit the pool is what I like

    Will run a theme draft in another thread if people want me to, like I said, but don't like it being for points/to determine the best drafter

    My plans ATM:
    Season 2: Voodoo
    Season 3: Peak
    Season 4: Era

    Each draft's only going to take a few weeks regardless so we don't need to stress about it

    Must say I like the idea of a themed draft.

    Going with the voodoo draft this time. Then Eds' ideas round 3 and 4, peak draft will be very interesting especially

    It's not for me to say. I'm hanging on by a point.

    It's really up to Cabinet96 and Marcuss to say whether they would like more time or not. That is, till Wednesday, 7pm Aussie Time.

    For what it's worth....

    I've learned a lot about the history of cricket and the relative strengths of players since I've been in involved in Drafts.

    Consequently, I've adjusted the two ATG World teams in my 'signature'. I think that they would play the closest and most exciting Test match in cricket history - if the impossible were achievable and they could all be reincarnated at their peak.

    The voting period is over as of now, so here are the results! Congratulations to Eds for winning the first season. Monk and Valer will be joining us next season, but Marcuss and Cabinet96 will drop down for the time being. Eds’ squad become the first entrants into the Hall of Fame. I’d say it will take three or four rounds before someone can start calling themselves the best drafter, but Eds has a great start now.

    Season two, a recap of the rules!

    Quote Originally Posted by Jager View Post
    Rules for the voodoo draft
    - The concept of this draft style is to marginally reduce the selection pool of players in order to increase the difficulty and use of strategy.
    - At the start of each round, all drafters will need to send me an email nominating the player they want in their team. If two people select the same player, that player becomes unavailable to all drafters (becomes voodoo).
    - The players who become voodoo will not appear on the selection board in order to make it visually easier for players to see who needs to repick. They will appear on the voodoo list below.
    - Every player who chooses someone without challenge instantly gets their pick.
    - The players who get eliminated/selected will be posted up by myself, and then the players who drew for someone will then get a chance to choose someone else.
    - I will need to select my player beforehand so that it is fair for everyone (honour code applies for me).
    - Don Bradman will be available for selection.
    - My email I will use will be mrtownsend@live dot com.

    Example round using current players. Players who appear on the lists are those that will be kept. The drafter is then locked out for the rest of the round

    R1.1
    kingkallis-
    Himannv- Richard Hadlee

    Voodoo list: Don Bradman, Glenn McGrath


    R1.3
    kingkallis- Curtly Ambrose
    Himannv- Richard Hadlee

    watson- Phil Tufnell

    That would be one round. Easy enough to understand.
