Get your velcro tearoff warmup pants ready, because tonight we are going streaking!
Thanks to all of you who signed up for this game. Here's how the game works:
- The object of the game is to survive the longest by making the correct selection in a series of propositions, with each proposition dependent upon an outcome in that day's game. Each proposition will be binary, so one side will "win" and the other side will "lose." (For example, a proposition might be "the Dodgers will hit four or more home runs in tonight's game" (and we all know what side to take on that example).)
Sometime in the two hours leading up to the first pitch in that day's game, a new "SoSG Streaking" Proposition Post will go up, with a proposition bet described. But here is the catch: only the first player in each head-to-head bracket to post a comment with his or her desired side will be allowed to select the side of the proposition. In other words, if you're in a head-to-head bracket and your opponent chooses his or her side first, you by default get put on the other side of the proposition.
Even though one person has already picked a side of the proposition, the opponent also needs to comment within the Proposition Post thread, in order to stay alive--or, the first player gets both sides of the proposition (and is guaranteed a win).
Propositions will be closed at first pitch. If neither opponent in the head-to-head battle takes a stance before the first pitch, both contestants are eliminated (or I'll think up some other outcome, maybe a coin flip; the point is, put in a vote).
I'm guessing that these propositions will be a first-mover advantage, so you may want to check if the Proposition Post has gone up yet.
The tournament bracket is single-elimination and was largely determined in the order people registered, with the exception of Dusto Magnifico for whom we have to thank for the awesome game logo (above), so I advanced him to the first round (sorry, Loney Fan!). The rounds will play as follows (click to enlarge):
So, to Loney Fan, hawkhandler, In Vin Veritas, Fernie V, Steve K, Central Valley Fan, Neeebs, and Keven C: be ready sometime after 5p today! Good luck!
