We need to address "remastered" games. I say if you draft Game X: Entry Y you can only use the initial game and console. I.e. Zelda: Wind Waker is a GameCube game.

However, if a game is released near simultaneously on different generation of consoles, you can choose. I.e. Zelda: Twilight Princess can be a GameCube or Wii game. Zelda: BotW can be a WiiU or Switch game.

Agree.

Also, compilations like Super Mario All:Stars are not allowed.

Do you really need a subforum for a drafted team tournament?

OK, been thinking about this some more...

What if Teams had 8 games with the following rules for teams:
- Can only have one game from a single franchise
- Games with similar characters across franchises are ok (Mario Kart 8 is not a Mario game)
- Must have four consoles/platforms represented
- Must have at least one mobile/portable game (Switch games do not count)

Snake order draft for teams.

Teams so far:
Monkey_Driven
Trag
ElloSailor
Tree (reluctantly)
run2death
CopperTom
ABNorman
bada
Jammer XCI

Who else is interested?

If you guys are still short, I'll join in. I'm not much of a video game person but hopefully I can coast by on research and nostalgia

Okay, so I haven't actually read what the rules are...

Is this a "draft a team" kind of tournament? Or a March Madness type of tournament? If you need another player in a "draft a team" I'm in.
