Time for the second half of the 2018 season! Here are the rules: Maximum of 30 players can join the pool Preference given to those who have participated in this BIF previously Those who have not participated in this before but would like to join must have a good past trading history and/or have participated in BIFs before. Members with limited history must have a sponsor vouch for you. If someone sees a member who has a sketchy history, has a lot of known obligations, please bring that to my attention. I call this the saugusbrewer problem - he owed stuff to a number of people, but no knew how much was owed. Each member will randomly be assigned a team by the website, runyourpool.com Each time your team plays, the number of runs they score will be tracked, regardless if they win the game or not The goal is to be the first TB-er who's team scores every number from 0-13 runs All participants (except the overall winner) will ship a minimum of 44 oz of beer within ~30 days of the pool ending (detailed timeline will be posted then). New members: please send me a message with your name, email address, address, and phone number. Do NOT just post in the thread that you'd like to join, I need your info to send you the website info. Returning members: I can reactivate you on the site. I'll probably start a group PM, to help track some of these alternative prizes. Because this is the 2nd half pool, we could potentially end the season without a winner. If there is a tie for most ticks, then we'll go to most runs scored (only counting the scores that are part of the pool, 0-13) The prizes! Overall Winner: First team to score every number from 0-13 runs (19 boxes) If two teams finish on the same day, the winner is the team whose game finished first. Last Place: As a consolation for having the least number of scores ticked, the player with the team in last place will receive a box from the player who is in second to last place. Last place still sends a box to the winner. If there's a tie when the pool ends, the team with the fewest runs scored (only counting the 0-13 scores) gets the box. (1 box) Booby prizes!!! All of these "winners" still send a box. If one of these winners is also the overall winner, then their winnings are reduced by 1 box to account for the smaller prize pool. Most runs allowed between the day we start and the day the pool ends (2 boxes) Most runs scored between the day we start and the day the pool ends (including games of 13+ runs) (1 box) Team with the most zero ticks at the end of the pool (3 boxes) Team with the most games of 14 or more runs (1 box) Team that the winner was playing in the game they completed the 0-13 pool (1 box) Team with the All Star game MVP (yes, you will immediately win a box when we assign teams!) (1 box) New members who would like to enter, please send me a message with your name, email address, address, and phone number. Do NOT just post in the thread that you'd like to join, I need your info to send you the website info. Returning members, I'll activate you on the website again once you let me know you're in. Once I have you confirmed, I will send you all of the necessary info to join this pool's group on runyourpool.com. Please make sure your user name is your TB name. After we have reached 30 participants and everyone has registered on the website, I will have it randomly generate teams for all of us. Questions or if I've missed something, please let me know! The first half 2018 thread is here. The 2017 threads are here and here.
