Here's how it works.
We call this game the "fantasy draft" which was a term coined for it by Bigballerju
The game runs in a season which is probably a couple months. There is an open draft period where players select their teams. Following that, the teams are locked and compete.
Select A Team
A team has seven members. Each member occupies a Slot which is kind of like a "position" in sports.
For example, if this were a "Fantasy Baseball" game some Slots might be "Pitcher", "Catcher", "Right Field".
In the CBUB Fantasy Draft some example slots might be "A Cartoon Character", "A Spaceship", "A Marvel Super-Hero".
OK, you get the idea.
The Slots will be determined season to season and will probably vary wildly. Considering that there are hundreds of characters in the CBUB Database to use an Admin will verify each team to ensure all the characters in the team meet the definition of their Slot before the season begins. This will happen during the Open Draft period.
A player may have Five active team characters and Two on the Bench. Players may swap their characters to and from the bench during the season at will.
If a player has selected a character which turns out to be a dud, they can bring a character which may do better off the Bench.
When the season begins, the player's chosen characters will be thrown into contests with other characters of the same Slot Type. These matches are random.
If "A Spaceship" was a Slot, for example, all the Spaceships would have matches. All the Slot Types will be matched up against their like.
The match making program will attempt to NOT have characters match-up against the same character more than once.
Winning these contests gets the players team points.
A round lasts Three Days. The Individual Contests will last Ten (or More) rounds. Most of the Season will be Individual Rounds.
The players with the most points coming out of the Individual Rounds will move to the Team Rounds. All other players will be removed from play. Better luck with your team choice next season.
There will follow Two (or more) rounds of Team vs. Team match-ups. (5 vs. 5).
The player which comes out on top wins the season.
For the Individual Match round a win is worth 10 points. A loss is worth nothing.
The Team Rounds do not have points. Winning the match is all.
The winning player will have
A. Accumulated enough points from their team to be in with the lead players.
B. Win both all their Team Match rounds
Each season will have an MVP character - the character which accumulated the most points.
Characters will have season win / loss stats on their character sheet for every season they were selected and used.
Team Pages with the season stats of each team and their members will be a permanent addition to the CBUB to be looked at and admired by future generations.
