    Welcome To The Cantina's:
    STAR WARS NFL PICK 'EM VII
    The Picks Awaken

    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. Having won the last 2 years @Alamact is currently a BACK-TO-BACK PICK 'EM CHAMP... will the dynasty continue, or is the pressure of a three-peat too much for him to handle??

    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 2020-2021 schedule. At the end of the regular season we will move on to playoffs and eventually the Super Bowl. When we get to the playoffs we up the ante and make games worth more, with a slightly different format. For the Super Bowl we also have some more fun and include some prop bets as bonus points. Checking out last year's thread is a good way to see how it was done, if you want to know specifics!

    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 VII game ball trophy! Last year we developed a special trophy that can be customized to your favorite team's color scheme, or just your favorite colors. Either way, it's a trophy that is 100% unique to you!


    Rules:
    Regular Season:
    • Players choose the winner of 7 pre-set match ups; 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 match ups.
    • 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!

    Dork Lord from the future here....

    We live in dark times. The Rear Admiral just celebrated his 20th consecutive Pick Em title. Tom Brady dominated yet another Super Bowl as a WR on the Jawas. But no more. I have completed my time machine. I may have forgotten (or I guess will forget) my sports almanac at home, but I vow to make things right.



    Week 1:

    Zabraks
    B-1s
    Androids
    Rebels

    You'll fit right in. Just always, always go with Brett Favre and the X-Wings. No matter what anyone tells you.
