    Welcome To The Cantina's:
    STAR WARS NFL PICK 'EM V
    The Pickers Strike Back

    This is a game in which you choose Star Wars inspired NFL teams that will win each weekend's matchup. At the end of the season, the player with the most points will be our winner. @Trevor is our returning PICK 'EM CHAMP... who amongst us will challenge him this year??

    Buy-in is a one time 100 credit fee. To play, please transfer 100 credits to @Wuher with the note: STAR WARS PICK 'EM.

    Premise:
    During the regular season, we pick 7 pre-set matchups weekly from the NFL's 2018-2019 schedule. At the end of the regular season we will move on to playoffs and eventually the Super Bowl. Last year, when we got to the playoffs we decided to up the ante and make games worth more, with a slightly different format. For the Super Bowl we also had some more fun and included some prop bets as bonus points.

    All are welcome to join! It doesn't matter whether you are a newcomer or an avid fan, anything can happen in this game!

    The person who has the most points following the Super Bowl will win a 1000 credit pot and the PICK 'EM V game ball trophy! (trophy TBD)


    Rules:
    Regular Season:
    • Players choose the winner of 7 pre-set matchups; each week we will pick the primetime games (Thursday Night, Sunday Night, and Monday Night) as well as 4 games from the early schedule on Sunday that look to be the most intriguing / closest matchups.
    • I will disclose the games to be picked on Tuesday of each week.
    • Please be sure to submit your picks before each game begins. Since we will always be picking the Thursday games, I suggest to have all your picks in by the start of that game (Thursday 8:30 PM EST). If you're indecisive like me, you're more than welcome to change your picks of the other games at any time provided you do so before they begin. (We can see when and how a post is edited, so no cheating please!)
    • Each winning pick is worth 1 point. Pick all 7 games correctly and you get 7 points for the week. Pick 5 and you get 5, etc. Picking incorrectly does not count against you.
    Playoffs:
    • Same premise; pick the winner of each game
    • Additionally, assign a confidence point value to each pick; in a week where there are 4 games to choose from, you would designate your most confident pick with 4, then 3, 2, and 1 accordingly. (A perfect week is worth 10 points in total)
    • Conference Championship picks are worth 15 points each

    Super Bowl:
    • The winning pick is worth 25 points.
    • In the event of a tie, the player choosing the final score that is closest to the actual score will determine the winner.
    • Prop bets will be included as bonus. (Each correct bet worth a 0.5 bonus)


    The Standings will be updated weekly on Tuesday.

    If you don't know the NFL equivalent of the Star Wars-themed teams, below is a translation list to help decipher.

    If you have any questions please ask, we've got a pretty friendly group here. :)

    Good luck everyone!

    You better!! :)

    Here's a little pre-season roll call to last year's participants, though I know some of you have already found us here... @Trevor @JeffG. @SlugmanAttacks @Rogues1138 @PrincessLeiaCB3 @Addi Ras @Alamact @TheBBP @FN-3263827 @Cole ... and a shout out to anyone who may have expressed interest recently... @teline @DarthBaron @madarabg... and if you guys know of any other NFL fans or just anyone looking for another Cantina game to play, send them over here!

    While I'm at it -- for those of you who played last year, is there anything you would change? I thought things went pretty smoothly for the most part but feedback is always helpful!

    Oh boy this is going to be fun.
    I suppose I should at least make some sort of effort to see how pre season went :p.

    Lord Snow's Anecdote of Advice:
    In 2008, my Detroit Lions Dathomir Rancors "won" the pre-season by going 4-0. They followed that up in the regular season by going 0-16.
    Judge me by my pre-season now, do you?
    ;)
