Quick question - do we give you our list after the random, or do I have to do it before?

After is fine. Deadline is 3 hours before the draft.

Use this: CFB6.zip

Number the cards in the field next to name in the order that you like them... then sort them. Then go back through and make any minute changes once you can see them in your personal preference order.

Also, it makes it easier to track which cards are taken in the draft.

In my opinion, in the random box(es) we get, if we hit a card worth $300 - $400 or more I believe we should just sell it and with that money we use it to buy another case(s) or box.

Totally agree, anything extra is a great bonus.

All 4 cases this time around should far exceeded any from the last group break.

Any idea when you would do the live break assuming there are no significant delays?

My back of the envelope calculation is that to get 4 colored Strasburg autos would necessitate approximately 94,722 cases, on average.

NOOOOOOOOO. There are way too many slots already. I think the random is the best thing. Kind of like a second chance drawing in the end. It could potentially give people a chance to hit something worthwhile.

Or the sell and invest in a case part is cool too.

money sent,
i say any hits from the "packs"
should be drafted after the fact - but twist is from the bottom up (meaning pick 432 or whatever is the last pick ) gets first choice

Good idea. Let's see what we get.

Random should be tonight, yes.

Can't make the extras draft slots.

I just don't think it would be fair to see a card worth $300 or $10,000 to get randomed between 80+ people. When we could just sell the card and use the money towards cases or split the money between everyone.

As long as we split the money in proportion to slots purchased. Kinda easy to talk about a split when you have 1 slot out of 400+

So if we hit a $300 card, you can have $0.71.

This is already so much work for the host, let's just keep it easy on him and random off any extra hits, since that was put in the OP to start with.

1- Pay within 24 hours
2- Email a full list
3- Extra picks randomed at the end

Amazing how few people can do all 3 of these things

I completely agree. The "extra hit" random also should take into account all 423 slots (which I'm sure it will) rather than just the 80+ people in the draft. I only paid for one slot and as such, I shouldn't have the same odds as someone who paid for 10 slots.

I completely understand that we would split the money in proportion. But it is up to Houdini. He can make it his call or ask all of us. I just dont think its a wise decision to sell a card if we pull one that lets say sells for 1K. With the money we can buy another case of BDPP.. Im just expressing my opinion. But again, its up to the host. I just like to pick from a list of many idea's, and Im just stating one of the possibles.

Well, it would actually be between 423 spots (and 80+ people)... however, it is entirely fair. It was stated upfront.

Let's not get ahead of ourselves though. We may only get 1 $5 auto - who knows?

I do like the idea of selling the cards and buying another case (if that were possible) - let's wait and see what we get. We can decide after we see the cards.

Thanks for all the ideas though.

If the host does go with this route, I also agree with you. The people who spent more money deserve the more slots. I only bought one as well and I wouldn't feel right if someone with 30 slots also only got 1 slot like me.
