Default Boxbreakers January Monthly High End FB Group Break

Hello all, this is our monthly Boxbreakers High End #2 monthly group break. We have been running these group breaks for over 5 years now and have been looking for a new site to host our #2 breaks and figured what better place than where we buy all our products! This High End #2 as well as our monthly Hobby #2 group breaks are "keeper" groups meaning you get to retain your same team for as long as you choose to continue. We hosted our first break here in November and after taking a month off for the Holidays we are back at it to start the year off!

While we are new here, we have plenty of references for those in doubt. We have maintained our High End and Hobby #1 group breaks over on another site and have been awarded as having the best Box Breaks for the last 2 years in a row. We were also featured by the New York Times as being one of the innovators of the group break phenomenon. We have over 1800 group break videos on Youtube under my user ID Crpalmi. With the switch over to the Blowout forums I have asked all our current participants to register here so hopefully they will join some of the other breaks on the site but those folks (most were here already) get us started and those team ownerships are noted below but all teams in bold are available on a first come first serve basis. If the current owner fails to register they will be removed from the break prior to the break moving to the active breaks area. We send out every card pulled and if we hit a multi-player hit it is awarded to the participant that owns the most teams on the card. If a tie it goes to the team of the player on top (if vertical) on the left (if horizontal), or on the front (if front and back).

This break is called our High End FB #2 group break. We do this one towards the end of each month and it usually includes a couple cases of Higher End products. Because we are new here I am starting this product list off small as it's budgeted for just 20 teams filled and another 11 teams drafted. Should we fill more teams than that we will add products to the list. I should explain our secondary draft format. We try to fill as many teams as we can but when the payment deadline arrives we then put all the unclaimed teams into a draft pool. If you are a member of the break you can purchase an optional draft slot at a discounted price. We then have a mod randomize the draft slots and hold a draft where you pick which remaining team you would like to take when it's your turn. We budget for one less draft slot as teams we have so the person that draws the final pick of the draft will get the remaining 2 unclaimed teams! Drafted teams are just like your claimed teams in that you get every card pulled from your team but at less than half the cost of the original slot. The funds generated from those sold draft slots are all put in the budget so we can keep all costs as low as possible. Here are the details of the November High End #2 FB Group Break (keeping in mind the product list can change slightly based on our final number of participants);

Product List (Based on 20 Teams filled + 11 drafted)
2012 Limited Case (15 Boxes)

Full case of 2012 Limited and nobody wants Foles?? How about 11 Five Star and Julio Jones staring you in the face? Last couple cases we did of Five Star we've pulled a Ray Lewis Auto as well for any Ravens fans!

Still waiting to hear from Po10sho, Schocktown and Steelpen2 but as soon as we know their status we can proceed with the drafting of unclaimed teams. Just as a back up plan in case... is anyone interested in the Lions, Rams or Steelers?

Hey Chris when are you looking at starting the draft for extra teams. Just lmk I am going away tonight and won't be able to get on until tomorrow around noon so I was just wondering. Please lmk thanks. I can possibly find some time to get on tonight if needed but will most likely being playing poker at the boat most of the night. I can sneak back to the room if needed though that is why I am wondering because I thought you were breaking this weekend?

Still hopeful for Sunday evening but will probably have to start the draft tomorrow late tonight or tomorrow. I'll email everyone and do it that way in hopes of a quick result so we can stay on schedule.

Sounds good I will be checking in on the thread then so I can keep from holding anyone up. I am at the hotel now about to go play some poker but I will check it right when I get done playing. Good luck all!!

Just a heads up that we had a few extra bucks so I upgraded the extra box that we had from 2011 Timeless Treasures to 2011 Plates & Patches. See you around 8:45pm!
