    I'm officially in. Going by my draft resume, I will be looking to topple some of the front rowers. (Bad, bad analogy).

    Almost there lads. That's 14 confirmed entrants as of now. Looking for two more, but even if we only get one more player I could always fill that last slot if necessary.

    Is the idea that players in a mini-draft get alternate picks? It’d seem fairer (and quicker) to start with a single pick then have double picks after that.

    Yeah, that's how I originally imagined it. I guess I was thinking of tennis tournament a lot at the time when I made the OP, where the action goes back & forth like a rally. I suppose the great leveller was supposed to be, if you don't pick first, you still have a big amount of control in the fact that you can choose the parameters of the mini-draft.

    May very well be fairer/quicker to take on board your method. What do the rest of you think?

    Also, if we max out here at 14 players, I propose a CWC 2011/2015 style format.

    Aaaand... I'm thinking of ditching the virtual coin toss idea, seems a bit boring. Instead maybe I'll think of a number between 0 - 100, y'all take guesses, & the person closest to the number between you & your opponent will have "won the toss". That way it's transparent & people are to an extent in more control of the outcome.

    How will I know what number you were thinking? Don't worry about transparency.

    Just have yourself decide who wins the 'toss' imo, using a rng if you want. It sounded fair

    Ftr I was interested in this because it'd be quick 1v1 drafts with unique rules each time. But now people are talking about having to keep track of players across multiple groups and rounds and that just sounds like a mess and it'd be a pain for me to follow. Completely changes the thing, I think.

    Ok I agree with you guys. Let's just keep the rules how they were because I am also interested in the 1 v 1 format. We'll give a little while longer to see if we can get one or two more players, if not, someone might just get a bye in the first round.

    Hey Jimmy, are you thinking of 47 right now?
