Just wanted to start this thread as a melting pot of ideas for commissioners and guys trying to find new and different ways to figure out draft order.

 

this year I’m doing a Mario kart time trial race of only one lap fastest time gets first and so on and so forth. But here’s the kicker when the timer goes off for the race you have to chug a beer and then race. So how fast you chug the beer effects your ending overall time.

What version of Mario cart?

I’m really wanting to find the original N64, one of the members thinks he has everything but has to look but worst case scenario it’ll be on the switch

We’re doing Top Golf. Best score gets to pick their position and so on.

Circle jerk. Last guy to finish goes first and so on. It really gets everyone motivated to finish the others off

We do it just like the NFL mostly. We have 12 teams. Bottom 6 get drawn out of a hat for the top 6, same with the next 6 that made the playoffs.

We have 2 seperate tiers. Playoff teams and non playoff teams. Non playoff teams are randomly selected and the can pick their own draft spot. Than on to playoff teams.

The draft order is somewhat based off your record genius. Hence the "mostly" with a little random mixed in.

Mostly? Maybe mostly if you have no idea how the nfl draft works and close your eyes and tilt your head sideways so that the idea looks somewhat similar

First to finish gets first pick, largest load gets first pick second round diameter measurement for the third round

NFL draft order is based of record. Ours is also. Is somewhat better for you?

Do Mario Kart but with a twist.   We used to play it this way back in college.  

 

You crack a beer before the race starts.   The beer has to be finished before the race is over.   The only caveat is you can’t drink and drive.   The kart has to be stopped to drink, so pick your stopping points wisely.   Either chug the beer to start the race or find a time somewhere in the middle.
