The point of this Forum Section

Some members are a little iffy on what should go in the Games & Humor forum section so.

Trivial games like "the person above you game" should be placed in this forum.

Humor of all kinds also belongs here, like the "Superman has a problem with kinky sex" thread.

What does not belong here would be things like video games, board games. Or humor coming directly out of comic books or discussion of books.

Boardgames and the like would go in the Action Figure and Toys section as could video games, though those could also be posted in the General Forum Section.

also any posts in this Forum Section do not count towards your post count.

Hope that helps!

    Well, I was under the impression that you were proposing limiting it more severely, like if there were 16 people in the draft, drafting 7 member teams, the pool would be exactly 112. I could undoubtedly come up with some kind of clever theme out of a pool of 112 heroes, but it would never survive to the end of the draft, and more likely would get hosed before the halfway mark.

    lol No but I just thought of what I'm going to do if this rule isn't deaded. (Yes, I know that "deaded" isn't a word.)

    Really I'm just trying to cheat and do another Cast a DC/Marvel Movie/TV draft...

    Unless the goal is to grab a team to accomplish a specific task, or win a battle, or something like that. If we are going to draft like sports teams draft, then I'd think the goals should be similar, in the sense of making the best team we can to pit against the other teams in some kind of competition of skill or power. Then when voting time comes, the arguments would be about whose team would win, not whose was coolest or cleverest.

    I like this stipulation as well if we go with the smaller stable to choose from. Because having it be theme based would make a smaller set of characters be too frustrating to complete. Someone might choose a character that would completely wreck my theme.

    But, if we're choosing a team based on a battle or task, character restrictions wouldn't be as detrimental and might even make it more interesting.

    I say next time we do a Hero or Villain draft, before we do actual drafting, we make a list of 120-150 characters to choose from.

    Oh an actual pool of talent/choices. I don't think that should be implemented in this draft, but maybe for the next Hero/Villain drafts? Like only DC heroes that have been Justice League members...

    Awwwwww that means I have to throw my Avengers starring Agent Liberty and Blue Beetle idea out the window
