Tribecards from Outer Space: 1st Free Agent Draft Results

A bit of housecleaning before I get to the results:

Calangels - I do not have you registered in my database as a participant, so I removed your name from the Free Agent Draft. You are welcome to participate in the "Reader Giveaways" that I will have throughout the season, though!

Right now, I don't see an issue with cleaning up the non-registered folks that submit entries. I just compare them to the sign-up list and remove them if they missed the registration deadline. If it does become an issue, then I'll address it at that time.

Now, on to the draft.

The first thing I did was list everyone on  Then I put everyone's picks in order based on their draft ranking. Next, I used the snake format (down 1st pick, up 2nd pick, etc) to eliminate choices. lastly, I compacted everyone's results to make it easier to read.

Here are the final results:

As you can see, some folks were shut out of their choices. Better luck next draft!  Cards will be placed with their new owners. Any players not drafted will be rolled over to the next draft.

The most creative response goes to dawgbones. For his participant name, he said, "Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya, you killed my draft, prepare to draft again... (dawgbones) :-)" - Excellent stuff there!! I love "The Princess Bride!"

For those interested, here is the raw, sorted list:

And, here is the list immediately after the snake draft, before compacting things:

All draft picks are final. If I managed to mess this up, I offer my apologies and will try not to do it again. Whip me with wet noodles or something.


  1. Yeah, I thought I might be a little late to the table.
