I'd be interested in the BBT break if it wasn't an 80 person break. Maybe cut that in half to 40. I can see more people being interested. Paying more, but your chances are that much better since its a 2 case break. However for me to join it would need to be done in another 2-3 weeks or so.

If anything to draw more you can just decide to do a 1 case BBT break and lower the amount of spots. Can't speak for all, but I think some people are turned away due to the buy in, even if it is 2 cases.
So you are saying do a 40 person break for 2 cases and make it a snake draft? This would pretty much double the slot price since everyone gets two picks.

I had just changed it to 34 slots for 1 case making all base random since a few people didn't want them and if enough people showed interest trying to add a second case.

Yea I think with a 2 case 40 person break more would be willing since your getting more bang for your buck.

Pay say $80, you have a really good shot at pulling a higher dollar card and an alright/good card when it comes back around to your pick. Not to mention chances are that much greater to being randomized in the top spots and getting an auto/wardrobe. Almost like buying a box for yourself, but leaving out the base and picking what hits you get.

Vs a 80 person break..if you pay about $40 and wind up near the middle/bottom you're definitely coming up short and won't get your money's worth.

So I think a higher buy in/less person break would be better. But then have to find the people willing to throw in about $80 a spot. I personally think having everyone's chances that much better though outweighs the price. $80 for basically a 1 in 20 shot at a auto/wardrobe, I like those numbers

34 hits per case (12 autograph, 20 wardrobe, 2 insert). If there are any hits left after everyone makes their selections will be randomized. Same with base.

1165 x 2 = 2,330 / 34 = 68.55 + S&H + paypal = $75 first spot $73 additional spots.

I like the idea of a 2 case draft at 32 slots per case (64 total slots). Theres some who would buy a couple, and some who would buy 10+. I think once it goes to active/open, the masses will flock to it.
