GenCon Fantasy Draft 09 Discussion

GenCon 09 Heroscape Fantasy Draft?

I ran this last year, and spider_poison did the year before. Basically you pick 5 'Scapers in the main event at GenCon as your team. Depending on how your team performs you earn points. The winner is the person with the most points at the end of the tournament.

If I do it, I will make a couple of changes to the rules, but the basic idea will remain intact.

Since there is no exclusive GenCon figure that can't be the prize this year like it was last year so any suggestions would be appreciated.

Re: GenCon Fantasy Draft 09?

I like the idea. I have always loved fantasy games so I am sure that I would love this one. I would just need to know who the entrants are and some things about them like how good they play, how old they are, and things like that so that I can get a feel of who I am choosing.
Great idea though,

Re: GenCon Fantasy Draft 09?

I was sooooo close last year, and I didn't even really understand how it worked. This year, as I'm not going to GenCon, I must live vicariously through the fantasy draft. I'm all over this.

Well, I did dreadfully last year, but I'd love to play again anyway. Thanks Damja.

You can only pick people you know for sure will be playing in the main event. The main way to know is the events roster for GenCon. I just picked names that I knew last year. It helps to read about past tournaments and winners if you are really wanting to win. Here is a good thread for that.

I am going to do some work with this later this week/early next week.

This year I think I will assign each registered participant a point value and you will have to build your team under a certain number of points. I am thinking that as a player gets picked more and more his point value will increase and as the teams come in and a player is not being picked, his points will decrease.

Re: GenCon Fantasy Draft 09?

Sounds great. Can multiple people have some of the same people in the main event or how does it work?

Re: GenCon Fantasy Draft 09?

Heh. I came in pretty far down last year, but I'll try to do better this time, in case anyone picks me.

Sounds like a great idea! RunaRep!
